This is Japan shouldn't be pleading "I have no knowledge of touching the second"?

Truly serving your country means making it a better place for others to live no matter the cost. Japan should be proud of her.

Not sure pushing the nutcases further underground is a wise move.

I'm all for keeping an eye on them, but any idiot can just find the info they are looking for on international sites and copy-paste to Google translate. At least with these Japanese sites, they might be get a heads-up as to who they are. Removing the content is just playing whack-a-mole.

He's a callous lowlife. These kinds of people don't change, just regret getting caught.

Posted in: Inmate awaiting execution dies after choking on food See in context

@Fredrik, you should read this:


It really doesn't say she enjoyed killing them but she certainly didn't hold back. She was convicted of defrauding a woman of 1.2 million yen then the police started investigating her and found six of her previous "boyfriends" had died under suspicious circumstances. They managed to get 2 convictions but it really looks like she killed the other four as well. It appears she was either lending them money and they were not paying it back or the other way around. In most cases, she drugged them and then took her victims to either the sea or river, beat them and left them to drown. (Looks like she pushed the first one in front of the train).

Luckily no bikes waiting in line. Always leave space for bikes to get through in lines. We're not just trying to get to the front, we're also trying to get as far away from the back as possible - it's the most dangerous place.

@JeffLee, I thought the same about the skateboarder but then an angry, outsider with a foreign background would be easy to find. Just ask a few of the other skateboarders - pretty sure none would be willing to hide a guy who killed a family. The police must at least know who the guys the family had an altercation with or at least know if one of them was foreign looking.

Posted in: Decision not to indict over Sri Lanka detainee's death unjust: panel See in context

A lot of comments saying why was she here? She should've just been sent home. Like a person's life is that simple. Hopefully this from Wikipedia can explain to you why she was still here:

In August 2020, Wishma went to a police station in Shimizu, Shizuoka, to seek shelter from her boyfriend's domestic violence, only to be sent to a detention facility run by the Nagoya Regional Immigration Services Bureau.[2][14] This was despite a 2008 directive from Japan's Immigration Bureau (later Immigration Services Agency) to its facilities to treat domestic violence victims with appropriate care and possibly grant them residency.[14]

Wishma stated that she wanted to return to Sri Lanka, but she was put on a waiting list as she could not afford a flight home as commercial flights were unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[11] After receiving threats from her ex and being offered potential accommodation from a supporter, she decided to ask to stay in Japan, and applied for provisional release on January 4, 2021,[15] which was rejected on February 16

Posted in: Is 'standard' Japanese language test best metric for hiring foreigners? See in context

It's also massively skewed towards its main customer - Chinese test takers. The reading section is really hard just to give them something to do (I remember taking the test next to a 12-year-old and it took her about 20 minutes to do the N2 reading section). Then the listening section is really easy otherwise they would all fail.

I got my N2 after three attempts so reckon I know a bit about the test.

advocating something is not the same as breaking the law, is it ? You need to learn to follow an argument.

I was referring to this post you made in which you openly admitted to breaking the law. Perhaps you need to learn to follow the law?

Posted in: Trial of English-speaking test for Tokyo high schools face opposition from some parents See in context

I have been teaching a few students for this test for the past 3 months.

It's not bad, it's a step in the right direction. With the current situation parents send their kids to eikaiwa until 4th or 5th grade of elementary school then take them out so they can go to cram school to study for the jnr high entrance exams because English isn't necessary. Once they go into junior high, until now, there was also little incentive to practice spoken English as it's rarely necessary for the University entrance exams (spoken English).

If Japan was serious about English they would make it part of the junior high entrance exams. Then universities should award entrance points for IELTS and TOEFL scores.

I have no problem with having it graded in the Philippines. The criteria isn't for perfect pronunciation, they just want to hear understandable English.

These are all allegations and we do not have the full story.

Innocent unless proven guilty.

Except he admitted it. It's fairly safe to say he's guilty.
