Let's be clear ¥220,000 a month & no health care/pension contributions & having to teach unruly elementary school kids on your 'stand

by days' is hard work and the pay is rubbish.

Let her wear the earrings & GET A LIFE!!

Again working for the likes of INTERAC & having to obey ridiculous rules is NO fun so imo DON'T become an ALT in Japan it's waste of time and the pay sucks!

Tokyo should have been suspended from the 'Go to' campaign weeks ago.

COVID19 is unlikely to disappear for quite some time ,even after a vaccine is made available.

This year and most of next will be the limbo years...Let's hope for the best for 2021!

@kohakuebisu....( I think the money saved and the thrill (dopamine hit) of stealing, with little perceived risk of being caught, is the motivator here).

She is 83 for goodness sake!She did it for the thrill?! Don't be daft !

a crime is a crime unless you are a politician then it's part of your job!

83 yr old woman...Japanese have no heart.

No need to call the police.

Just forbid her from shopping there if you have to.

I would have given her a food parcel and sent her on her way.

If she multiplied her crime by millions/billions of yen she could become PM of Japan! or at least henchman like Kawaii & co.

The poor are penalised and the rich elites rewarded!!

@Venze

China should back the heck up from bullying it's Asian neighbours.

The U.K's questionable prowess is questionable just like the CCP's true motives for building artificial ports on other nations sovereign territories!

Internal problems? Our problems seem minor compared to China's use of concentration camps and take over HK!

@Akie...

China is overstepping it's mark in the pacific region and has NO rights to the Senkaku Islands or anything else.

Nice to see Britain & Australia standing up to you alongside The U.S and India and of course meekly that it is Japan.

China is a menace!!

@spinningplates

They do NOT have the laws in place to enforce a strict lockdown.

The U.K enforced and is yet again enforcing a strict lockdown without much success I should add.

The amount of suicides caused by loss of jobs, anxiety and depression due to COVID19 in Japan is more of a worry than the increase in cases of this virus.

I keep hearing everyone saying we need a strict lockdown.

It won't happen so put a sock in it.

Posted in: Suga says plan to release Fukushima water coming soon See in context

The LDP and TEPCO had 9 years to find a solution to this problem but failed miserably.

The great wise and technologically advanced Japan's answer to this radioactive problem is 'dump it into the sea' ( filter it a bit first to make it look like we know what we are doing).

The tsunami was a natural disaster but the clean up and de commissioning work has been a case of total negligence and incompetence!

When it comes to nuclear waste...

TEPCO'll throw it in the sea with great haste!

9 years of no action...

Now they have a plan...never mind people's reaction!

So they'll dump it in !

Do you fancy a swim?

Think they care about the sea?

They only care about what's in it for 'me'.

So when you eat your delicious sushi

Don't lose hope!

The stuff is full of isotopes!
