Surprised they don't have NHK's Tokyo Olympic song "Papurika" on the menu.

Also, every time I go to Nagoya, I eat lunch at the Hilton with family. Never again

Is this your boycott of the day?

Things have changed quickly. The past 5 weekends that I have gone out somewhere, the parking attendants have been foreign. I didn't even have to speak Japanese. Same goes for a lot of cashier jobs.

Posted in: K-pop group BTS's talent agency apologizes over A-bomb shirt See in context

Funny thing from the news this morning. They interviewed people on the streets of Seoul how they felt about the shirt. One girl said that BTS shouldn't have to apologize and why does Japan "constantly dwell on the past?" lol

Too bad suing for money is the only way to do things. Companies should be sued for jobs to be taken away. Then these jerks could really feel the pain.

Every few years I look him up on the internet to see what his latest ventures were. I was always surprised how well he was doing for his age. He was hosting that Superhumans show on Discovery Channel too which was pretty interesting. His mark on this World will be forever felt.

Congratulations! Yankee fans won't be happy about this as they keep dwelling on Andujar being better because of his HR count and better average. Ohtani was more of an impact player on the entire MLB no matter how you look at it. Plus Andujar was one of the worst defensive infielders in baseball.

Posted in: Yanagita hits 'sayonara' home run to lift Japan over MLB See in context

I am a diehard Hanshin Tigers and LA Angels fan and these teams have players from neither teams. Well Japan has only Iwasada who may or may not play because he is a pitcher and the worst on the team statistically. I just can't get excited watching players from the Giants, Carp and Hawks.

Then Trump thanked him back for being a great friend and ally. Next day Trump jumps on Twitter and rips Japan/Abe for unfair trading. Same news, different day.

Posted in: TV Asahi cancels performance of K-pop group BTS over A-bomb shirt See in context

People here are already angry enough that K-pop is outselling domestic music exponentially.

Man, K-wave is in the past here. Only a few artists remain popular but not like 5-10 years ago.

If I was 41 and worth close to $1 billion, I would stay far away from the ring and enjoy my Lakers courtside seats like he has been doing.

Posted in: Kyoto aiming to disperse crowds to ease 'overtourism' See in context

One thing causing all of this is the huge influx of low cost carriers at Kansai Airport particularly within Asia. I remembered people saying that Kansai Airport was extremely expensive for airlines to land at hence the lack of flights in and out. They must have eased the costs.

My Korean friend told me how expensive Korea has gotten and that Japan is actually about the same if not cheaper. Japan is becoming affordable.

 I don't want traveling by shinkansen to be negatively impacted by extreme security measures just because of 1 or 2 looneys.

The same people who complain about this are going to complain about how nothing was done to prevent the incident and how Japan is a dangerous country. I guess people choose sides depending on the day.

If I am basing my opinion on all stories read in the news, I think maybe single mothers should just stay single.

Posted in: Police investigate speeding case after driver posts footage online See in context

I can see that is the Daini Hanna highway that links Nara and Osaka. I drive it every week and can tell you that that tunnel alone is always crawling with highway patrol. I guess they don't work late at night.

Posted in: SoftBank CEO Son says Saudi fund to continue despite Khashoggi murder See in context

Would anyone criticising Son here instead demand a boycott of Saudi oil and pay more at the pump to show solidarity with Khashoggi? Didn't think so.

Exactly! 35-40% of Japan's oil imports are from Saudi Arabia. Why has no one here sold off their car or bike yet? People can downvote but have no explanation.

Though I am not into religious ways, I commend them for their willpower and courage to go to Third World countries to do what they believe in despite the risk.

I saw that Netflix show where the guy went on a group tour of the high radiation areas. No thanks for me but highly informative about government lies.

Posted in: Schoolgirl caught stealing dozens of educational books in one night See in context

She has her uni entrance exams coming up, and the pressure is clearly on

If she has no money for these books, the price of college textbooks will blow her mind if she can afford to go in the first place.

Posted in: Hawks' Yanagita ends Japan Series Game 5 thriller with knockout blow See in context

Cool! I think this could be a make-or-break season for Hiroshima. If they lose, they may lose their best player Maru to free agency and their coach Ogata could quite possibly step down for failing to win/enter the Japan Series for 3 straight years. Hiroshima's demise is perfectly fine for me as a Tigers fan lol

Posted in: Japanese journalist freed from Syria says sorry for involving gov't See in context

I am sure that he had no desire to involve the government in the first place. It was the terrorists who wanted contact the govt. so could try and have a nice payday. He probably wanted to be as low key as possible to try and avoid his passport being voided like the government has been doing of late.

Won't be surprised if Hawks win it all because they always do and Hiroshima always chokes in big games.

I have always wondered if pepper spray was available here especially for women facing molesters. I guess this answers my question but used in the wrong way.

Crowds aside, I don't think I would last a second out there with people blaring and flash mobbing to Da Pump's U.S.A. song everywhere. Yes, I am getting older and crabbier but that song is just plain annoying.

Not only does this affect family but also affects neighbors, classmates and teachers who will always regret not being able to prevent the situation from happening. I have never forgotten a friend of mine in high school who shot and killed himself by mistake. It just stays with you.

Posted in: Paul McCartney arrives in Japan for four concerts See in context

Most of his solo oeuvre was just sentimental or faux pop rubbish. and he is a geriatric. Give me AKB 48 any day.

Not a fan of his solo music but without a doubt he sings Beatles music too. Also he sings at his concerts unlike your favorite group.
