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.

Since the beginning I am against Olympic Games, billions spent for Abe, bureaucrats and all construction corporation etc...and nothing for Fukushima people, kinder garden, child poverty, health problems, social helps and so on.

Posted in: Dentsu to face open trial over high-profile overwork case See in context

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.

"promises bind only those who listen to them" declared French politician Henri Queuille many decades ago. Abe get out as well all other dinosaurs and their families keeping play with the country!

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.

Instead of protesting they should realize how stupid is their election system meanwhile other countries have direct universal suffrage.

So sad but totally agree with @Disillusioned! Police is still "carebear" by ignoring alerts like in so many cases since decades.

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!

Good news to kick off but first he has to pay back all what he spent even if he becomes homeless under a bridge.

Posted in: What do you think of taxis in Japan? See in context

Usually they are very good witht good price. However, they almost all ignore orange/red signal!!! They rarely get out to help you with your heavy luggage...

Once in Osaka an old taxi ripped off me by not using the normal way and made me paid twice. My Japanese friend told me he definitely and voluntary took a large way to make me pay more so I'll never take again taxi in Kansai!

Posted in: Becky loses sponsors, regular TV appearances over affair scandal See in context

Totally agree with RiskyMosaic.

A stupid bashing and now we are getting another one with Kiyohara's drug scandal (marijuana, cocain or more?). Anyway, Japanese are human with defects as well as others in all over the world.

Posted in: Japan announces changes to refugee system See in context

Was this law necessary ? 11 people per year ? What's next ? zero ? Japan will never open the gate of immigration, we all know that. To justify such "no refugees" policy, they argue they pay 200 million dollars to the UN (with our money!) according to the Guardian. Do you really think 11 people from all over the world on a population of 126 millions people, is this gonna destroy Japan ? Even 100 on 10 years ? This is completely crazy! You should feel ashamed by such congratulations without having dignity for other humans. If they were Asians, rich to buy house and to consume in Japan, surely you will see them different and law would not be so tough...
