Does this mean Japan Post EMS service to the US will resume soon? Please.

Exactly! I don't understand why U.S. could ship here but not vice versa.

Posted in: U.S. teachers protest reopening schools while coronavirus lurks See in context

No one is saying kids shouldn't go back to school if it can done safely - but most of these schools can't do that...

Trump is gambling his re-election chances with the lives of our children...

Schools reopened in Japan 2 months ago, I don't recall hearing anyone here picketing in front of their kids' schools in protest. I also didn't hear anyone here forcing their kids' to stay home in order to save their lives. Actions speak louder than words!

Give it up, son. The dual-role dream is done. I hate the Angels so I don't really care, but you are of little use if you can't pitch and are day-to-day as a hitter.

Done? He is 26 years old with a long career ahead of him. Do you know what day-to-day even means? He could play tomorrow or this weekend.

I would buy a tank if they are planning on auctioning any. Always fancied one.

I think Rick, Corey and Chumlee might be able to hook you up.

Posted in: Angels' Ohtani doesn't record out in return to mound See in context

You can't expect everyone who has TJ surgery to come back and become Max Scherzer. He may need time but heck, he can still hit which not many pitchers have that option. He can use this season to hit then work his way up to next season since this season is short.

Sorry, I double counted the deaths on the Diamond Princess (13), so the active case number is 7,185 (or 7,268)

And that means 0.005747755146927703% of the country reportedly has the coronavirus(7,268 out of 126,449,367 people).

Posted in: Former Marines pitcher Jackson arrested for possession of cannabis See in context

Japan really needs to sort out its bizarre drug laws..

If you think Japan is bad, you will have a heart attack if you hear about what they would do to him in most other Asian countries.

Posted in: Letters from Japan: 'Can I sue my husband's mistress for psychological stress?' See in context

perhaps instead of the wife it should be the man suing for psychological stress due to lack of fun in the bedroom?!

I don't know. If you are cheating with one woman, it may be because something is lacking in the bedroom. If with several women simultaneously including sex workers, maybe the guy is addicted to sex. Sometimes having a lot of sex just makes you want sex more.

Posted in: Koike may shoot for premiership after Tokyo Olympics See in context

She will be 71 after her term is up! After earning a month what most people earn in half a year, can't she retire?

New to Japan politics? 71 is still a baby. Ishihara retired as governor when he was 80 and politics at 82.

Posted in: F1 drivers all wear 'End Racism' T-shirts, but 6 don't kneel See in context

For me, nobody should be forced or pressured to take a knee in this situation or any for any other political cause. A detect a hint of authoritarianism here.

Unfortunately it isn't about their feelings, they have to do it to keep up with sponsors. The person who decides to not support this cause will be considered a "racist" and sponsors will pull their support. That is the society we are living in.

When I played baseball, pitching always had me nervous because I worried about something similar happening. I hope Tanaka recovers smoothly.

Posted in: Mandatory charging for plastic shopping bags starts in Japan See in context

Time to tell shops you visit that they should be going back to paper bags like they used to use 40 years ago in all shops or lose your business.

Sorry, I go to stores for products that I want to buy, not how they bag my items.

Posted in: Trump defends John Wayne legacy over airport 'racism' row See in context

During the war he inspired no one and avoided the draft just like Trump while millions fought.

Go look at Joe Biden and Bill Clinton's draft record too. Same era as Trump and same student deferment excuse just like the ones many American users did here to get out of jury duty. I don't support ANY party but all politicians are deceivers.

Posted in: Trump defends John Wayne legacy over airport 'racism' row See in context

Nasty little man who never served his country while others went off to war in Europe.

Single men in their late teens and 20s were chosen first to go to the war before those in their 30s and over and those with multiple children. I know, my grandfather and 4 great uncles served in WW2. 2 great uncles didn't because of reasons I gave in the first sentence.

Posted in: 2 Osaka universities evacuated after bomb threat over new school name See in context

The bomb threat no doubt came from an inadequate right-winger, and not the staff at Osaka University.

or some sick puppy unrelated to any of the schools. It has happened many times.

Posted in: Traffic law to punish tailgating to go into effect Tuesday See in context

It is already illegal to cruise in the right lane, and yes the police to catch people for doing it

If the speed limit is 80kph, you can drive up to about 90kph with 100kph being at a high risk to be stopped. The car that is driving behind you flashing their lights is probably going faster than this and will get the ticket before the cruiser does.

Posted in: 4-year-old girl falls to her death from 6th-floor apartment See in context

Maybe it's time to retrofit apartment windows in Japan with child safety locks.

Or for parents to take better measures to ensure the door can't be opened easily for small kids. Toys R Us, Akachan Honpo, Nishimatsuya, etc all have special locks for balcony sliding doors for less than 500yen.

Posted in: Travel agency H.I.S. to shut third of its outlets in Japan See in context

H.I.S. blows as a company. Overpriced

Overpriced and employees are overworked and underpaid. My friend was an H.I.S. manager in the past. She jumped ship and hasn't looked back.

Posted in: Man gets 15 years in prison for murder of woman in Saitama love hotel See in context

Only 15 years for murder? Disgusting.

Not only that, he left her naked and dead like a piece of trash in a love hotel which will be her legacy. Her family deserves for him to never see the light of day again.

Just BS by politicians who are trying to stay in office

and mostly young people are the ones doing it and we all know young people don't really vote.

Posted in: Office cluster pushes Tokyo coronavirus cases to 6-week high of 55 See in context

“Unnamed office” How useless.

I am sure people who work there and associated with that company know it is the cluster office. If the name gets out, idiots will be heading there to vandalize it and spread slander about it. The same reason if you get Covid, you hope the neighborhood doesn't find out.

Posted in: 18-year-old girl arrested for not paying ¥160,000 Tokyo-Shiga taxi fare See in context

I ask this because we were involved in something similar (unfortunately) where a customer didn't pay, and it was never classified as a criminal case but instead just a civil suit. Police were never involved.

It is a criminal case. There have been similar stories on here a few times about passengers skipping the fare then getting arrested.

Posted in: Bento shop staff punished part-timer by piercing her nose, cutting all hair off, and more See in context

Otherwise, why in the hell would anyone stay?

Not everyone is cut from the same cloth. Mind control and feeling of low self-worth can be at play here. I am just happy that it was it was finally reported and the woman is still alive. It could have been fatal.

Posted in: Store staff stop talking to customers because of coronavirus; some hope change is permanent See in context

As a foreigner here, I actually like when staff talks to me about baseball or how I've been because I feel they are treating me as a human and not some alien that probably can't understand Japanese.

Posted in: 21-year-old man arrested for confining children aged 2 and 1 in room See in context

Police said that at around 6 p.m. that night, the children’s mother tried to call Hashimoto and when she couldn’t reach him, became worried about the kids and called the police. 

He didn't answer the phone so she called the police? Sounds like she didn't trust him enough in the first place to leave the kids with him. Glad the kids are safe.

Posted in: Man arrested for filming up woman’s skirt on train platform See in context

I think in these cases, female cops should be in charge of inspection. If I was a female, I wouldn't be happy if I someone took a picture up my skirt then the police "investigate" the pictures one after another.
