I sure do miss tasty, healthy bread. Japanese “bread” sucks.

As long as you are vaccinated and not obese, just get on with your life. Stop worrying.

We all know the type. Usually a white Toyota crown or a ProBox. I am glad the bikers did the right thing, and brought this tail-gater down a peg or three.

BK is so much better than McD's. I wish they were as abundant as the latter where I live.

I guarantee the whole building has inadequate insulation, if any at all. Gotta support the kerosene cartel in Japan!

Root cause of all this is Japan's tatamae culture.

Spot on. The chasm between the Germans and the Japanese is enormous. It will never change.

Posted in: Netflix stock plunges as subscriber growth worries deepen See in context

I love Netflix. Without it I would be in hell; just awful Japanese TV to watch. Hulu is rubbish in Japan, not sure about other countries though.

With some little mud from tsunami and radiation contamination, that's where difference are.

Indeed. I meant more like the ugly overhead wires, superfluous signage and barriers, plastic houses with metal windows....

The sad thing is, it doesn’t even look much more ghastly than the average Japanese village/town!

Posted in: Japan to reduce plastic waste from April See in context

Is this some kind of joke? A simple trip to the 7/11 here ends up burdening me with enough plastic to power a small power plant.

Posted in: In your experience, how hard or easy is it to get a driver's license in Japan? What were the written and driving tests like? See in context

I'm from the UK, so it was easy. Just an eye test, translation of UK license and proof that I had driven in the UK for at least three months. Oh, and some money, maybe 7000 yen or so.

Posted in: Daughter arrested for strangling 90-year-old mother See in context

Another tragic end to another desperate Japanese family. When will the Japanese government wake up and deal with their own ‘epidemic of families in economic crisis’ and ‘mental health issues’ ??

Never. They don't care.

Better look for small eateries where they make grass fed gourmet burgers.

No cattle in Japan are fed grass. It's all corn, There's a reason why the meat is so marbled and unhealthy.

Not necessarily, according to the article the body was "mummified".

You're right. Keeping a dead body in the spare room carries no health/sanitation risks!
