What are you talking about? Tobacco smokers are still everywhere and smell absolutely terrible. We all have to experience when a heavy smoking ojisan gets on the train and absolutely REAKS of cigarette smoke. it's terrible.
I couldn't agree more. I'm 100% for banning cigarettes as well.

The Japanese are taught in school that the evil Americans tricked/led/forced the poor, innocent, peace-loving Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbour. It was quite an eye-opener to chat about this with some of my work colleagues.

Just legalize recreational marijuana already.
Please, no. Last thing we want is Japanese cities turning into stinky, horrible places like Portland and San Francisco.

Guilty not guilty, one thing's for sure; he'll at least get a fair trial in France. Lucky he's not being tried in the Japanese "justice" system.

Japanese rice is only good for one thing: sushi.
For any other rice dish, Basmati rice or Jasmine rice is far more tasteful and less stodgy.

Posted in: The redelivery rate for home deliveries is rising as the number of parcels increases due to online shopping. This is placing a growing burden on the logistics industry, which is suffering from a labor shortage. What can be done to alleviate the problem? See in context

The main purpose of the COP28 is for the UAE to strike new oil deals, especially with countries like Japan who have no oil of their own.

I've been spending at least ¥500,000 every month using Rakuten Card and because of the points I never had to pay for fast food, gas etc. ever again
¥500,000 only gets you 5000 Rakuten points. So you expect us to believe you spend less than ¥5000 on food, gas etc. per month? Stop lying.

Israel doesn’t really care about having to release three Hamas hostages for every one Israeli hostage they get back. In the next wave of bombing to come, those released Hamas terrorists will probably be killed anyways. I expect the Israelis are even tracking their exact location.

No. Especially in Japan. Do you not know how “justice” works in Japan?

I have very few fears surrounding living in Japan.
My biggest fear, though, is getting mixed up with the Japanese police or being accused of something I didn't do.

I have to remind Japanese friends that when abroad, it is customary to thank the waiter/waitress when they bring food, and generally acknowledge their presence, rather than treating them like something you just scraped off the bottom of your shoe.

The company is planning to mass produce state-of-the-art 2-nanometer chips in 2024 in partnership with U.S. tech giant IBM Corp.
Err, that ain’t gonna happen. 2nm node?! Samsung and TSMC might be able to pull this off in 2024, but they’re the only two.
