Posted in: Clothes thrifting in Japan: How to get started See in context

tbh thrifting in Japan is a pretty disappointing experience at first. You'll be met with more curated "vintage" shops that have marked up their clothes to an extreme degree than true second-hand shops. It was a huge culture shock to find those price tags. Most people will thrift because it's what's affordable to them. Some of the best I've found are Treasure Factory and 2nd Street.

Finally! hopefully they replant with something that produces less pollen but is still native to Japan.

Because what's the point? it's not enticing at all. Aside from that, young people hardly even vote so why would they jump on the nationalist military bandwagon?

Elderly care facilities should be fully funded by the gov't. If gov'ts have enough money for war and the support of such from other countries then they have enough to take care of it's people who require aid now.

Posted in: Hollywood braced for 'double strike' as actors' deadline looms See in context

Netflix and Disney need to understand that without writers AND actors, their film businesses are a burning hole in the pocket. Everyone wants to consume but no one wants to pay a fair price

Tokyo is no stranger to gov't corruption, it's really sad how short sighted they can be. good on these people for pushing back against it

Posted in: Japanese A-bomb victim's paper cranes eyed for UNESCO heritage list See in context

ya'll are children lol.

we can recognize atrocities of war without it becoming a contest of who is the worst offender. The atomic bombs were abhorrent AND so were Imperial Japan's actions against other countries. Both can be true simultaneously.

Posted in: Japan faces headwinds in drawing foreign workers despite visa change See in context

and no mention of the rampant abuse and extreme under pay of foreign workers, surely that has no bearing on whether people want to work in this country...

oh but let's make a special new visa for rich foreigners who want to come here. nice classism Japan

I appreciate this. I think trailers and promotional materials often give too much of the film away before even watching it.

I don't understand the issue. He was having lunch and there was news of an attack. I'm sure his phone was with him so he could be contacted. Let the dude finish eating

Well it could also be that these allergies are really bad right now. So, who cares? If the gov't would stop the tree monoculture we would likely be wearing fewer masks as well.

I dunno but I'm pretty sure banning couples from marrying based on their choice of partner is LITERALLY discrimination. there's some intense mental gymnastics going on here. what a buffoon

yeah those marriage certificates are an absolute sham, they are utterly meaningless. When they real law comes to pass, allowing marriage for whomever then things will begin to change.

They’re never gonna get it are they… smdh while this is helpful it does not address WHY people aren’t having kids. This is a much bigger issue with companies, work culture and low wages.
