But the bankers and LDP cronies will get together and have a few hundred meetings and stamp some hankos etc and pledge a bit more all the while letting the economy and the Japanese ' ippai jin' get more and more hard up ...

Sad state of affairs tbh .

@Fighto deport him ?

He didn't kill anyone or cause grievous bodily harm!

A fine and some community service or a caution for assault yes .... deportation? No don't be utterly ridiculous!!

Btw most politicians here that have been charged with serious fraud, bribery and embezzlement just get away with a bow and a 'moshiwake gozaimasen deshita' so please stop with your constant gaijin bashing .

The retirement age will be raised.

The pension will be reduced.

Taxes will go up.

All this will reduced household expenditure and further exacibate the population decline and economic hardship here.

You can spout on about the environmental benefits but when the economy collapses and you are living on ¥30,000 a month in 2050 ( pension ) you won't be that interested in global warming you will be more worried about where you will find your next meal .

Posted in: Japanese opt for short, cheap overseas trips for Golden Week holidays See in context

I recently had a holiday in Australia from Japan.

It was very expensive to eat out so most days we are Maccas and sometimes fish and chips.

The minimum wage in Australia is $23 an hour so that equates to ¥2,380 in JPY.

Japanese minimum wage is around ¥1,000 per hour and sometimes less in Kyushu etc .

How can the average Japanese person travel abroad when the salaries are so abysmal and the yen is so weak !
