Posted in: Japan expands ban on arrivals from 73 countries See in context

An important information is missing in the article.....what about foreign nationals?

Japan Embassy website in the US is much more clear!

"Additional designation of areas subject to the entry ban Designating the entire areas of 49 countries and regions listed below* as areas subject to the entry ban. Banning the entry of foreigners who have visited the areas within the last 14 days unless there are special circumstances.

Foreigners with the status of residence of “Permanent Resident”, “Spouse or Child of Japanese National”, “Spouse or Child of Permanent Resident” or “Long Term Resident”, who have departed Japan with Re-entry Permission by April 2, are treated, in principle, as persons in special circumstances. This, however, is not applicable to foreigners who depart Japan on or after April 3. The “Special Permanent Resident” is not in the scope of the entry ban."

What about those people working in Japan and stucked abroad? Their home is in Japan....

Posted in: The surprising truth about cheating on one's partner in Japan See in context

"My Husband Won’t Fit is a fiction but really pathetic!

I know several couples married since decades and as long as husband do not bring woman at home, do not let things such as coupon for love hotel etc...and assume his "family" responsibilities (paying rent etc..), it's okay. There isn't involvement, that's just "play."

And some womens are doing the same too once kids are at school.

This is sad but it is a reality in Japan.

Posted in: Arrest warrant issued in Japan for Ghosn's wife See in context

So pathetic, what next ? They already took illegaly her passport thinking to pressure Carlos and what she did was simply to run away with her other passport. Did she get arrested few days later by coming back ? Not at all as persecutor...oops prosecutor has nothing against her.

Prepare the popcorn for tomorrow press conference and how this will impact in next months/years Japan feodal "justice" and worldwide image.

@Frank Ahanon

guarantee for his bail is huge for us, not for him. And the point is if we had to choose between keeping money or escaping to be finally with your family, and especially wife, guess family is more important no?

Posted in: Ghosn's wife leaves Japan to appeal to French gov't; prosecutors want her questioned See in context

As many of you, I totally agree with Carole decision and she said she felt like "Argo" movie which I can understand. Under which charges they have the right to take your passport ?

I don't like Ghosn at all but Japan system is totally from middle age....this is just the beginning of a long story. This case will show to everybody on the planet that Japan is not the country that they think it is and a deep change of justice is necessary!

Posted in: High court rejects claim of wrongful domestic violence certification by ex-husband See in context

So many policemen in Japan but nobody available to investigate about family matters, rapes, child abduction etc...and old politicians to create new law even more.

Heard about so many cases that even abroad, my family got the news and got worried when I was involved with Japanese woman...

Posted in: Japan to let in 500,000 foreign workers to help plug labor shortage See in context

In other word, more slaves for job that nobody want, not treated and paid as Japanese and more money for the "agencies" finding candidates in China, Vietnam etc....digging the grave of the country.

Posted in: Wife, local gov't ordered to pay damages for wrongful domestic violence certification See in context

A good decision on how many ? Japan is still living in another century. 6 years to realize the lie that coud have be done in a short time by correct investigation.

For the society, men = not enable to take care of kids so why to investigate?

And don't tell me policemen are not enough, 15 000 for only ONE man lately and event not a criminal.

Actually, to be a father in Japan and even more a foreigner, the risk to loose your kids is really high...and got divorced too.

Posted in: When big companies in Japan get caught up in scandals, their presidents always bow and apologize at press conferences. In general, do you think top executives should stay and fix the problem or resign? See in context

Press conference is a joke, since decades Japan companies with government help are blowing.

All executives should fix the first problem, all be kicked and then facing trial.

Good point to see dirty prosecutors getting slapped down but as paradoxbox said, pretty sure nothing will change as the problem is deeply inside Japanese society.

50% annual benefice of company to pay in case of karoshi, that's the only way to get down such slavery.

Posted in: The government hopes to get a casino bill passed in the Diet this month. Do you think casinos should be legalized in Japan? See in context

Pachinko companies are among the richest moving large amount of money, definitely not in crisis (at least not in big cities). Construction companies billion bribes to bureaucracy, digging "biggest hell" for Japanese addicted and their debts/loan...and yakuza welcoming casino to get more cash. As my friend said, Japan is digging its own grave.

Posted in: A mother leaves Japan so that her teen son can stay See in context

20 years in Japan and not speaking Japanese ? It's a lack of integration and what kind of job she was doing? We have here only few information. The Japanese judge take such decision by taking in account that son is now part of the country as he doesn't know any other one.

Basically we all agree by saying she was wrong to follow so many years in such situation as obviously, one day she has to be caught. Sure it's really sad for the son and it reminds me the very good movie "Crossing Over" and the family completely broken.

Posted in: Getting stopped by police in Japan – how often does it happen (and why?) See in context

Did you know you are not supposed to give your resident's card to police? You can show them you have one, but you should not give it to them. The only people who you can give it to are immigration officers.

It's very interesting. Do you have the law number for that please ?

Posted in: Getting stopped by police in Japan – how often does it happen (and why?) See in context

Another proof of police officer stupid profiling, I was riding on my bicycle as well as my Chinese girlfriend. I was stopped by officer to verify if it was my bicycle and it took my gaijin card and even after he got the confirmation it was mine, he wrote the number of my card on his book note. He refused to give me reason why he had to write the number.

By the way, my girlfriend was not bringing her gaijin card (always forgot it) and she has never been checked by police in 15 years here and neither her family. What else ?

Posted in: Do you think democracy is the best form of government? See in context

Take the latin definition of "Democracy" (demos + kratos) and soon you understand that worldwide use of "democracy" is simply wrong and fake....a simple manipulation to make you feel you change something when in fact you cant as it's an oligarchy. Corrupted politicians creating laws by and for the oligarchy. Best recent example: Baroso (Ex-top chief of UE) now at goldman sach!
