To claim that American cars are too big for narrow japanese roads is stereotype thinking. There are far more chevys in busan Sk than American cars in the whole of Japan. The reason American cars are not selling here is that deep rooted stereotype that they are too big and of low quality.

I know what it's like to be the "token" gaijin in a Japanese company and it is not fun!

I was for 25 years and I regret it so much. A foreigner is always a foreigner no matter whether you can read, write and speak japanese impeccably.

Posted in: Would former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn's arrest be a factor in whether or not you decide to buy a Nissan car in the future? See in context

I own two nissans and even before the Ghosn affair I had made up mind not to ever buy a Nissan because of quality issues and poor fuel consumption.

I have learned a lesson don't buy a car based on the design alone.

The whole thing is fishy and devoid of important details that could help one understand. I strongly doubt language is the reason and since it has gone to court details will be revealed expecially from the victim.

Hope there is a follow up to this case.

Posted in: Toyota's Japan Taxi becomes an expensive Olympic symbol See in context

Hinomaru, like other operators, gets a transport ministry universal taxi payment and an eco-friendly vehicle subsidy from the Tokyo Metropolitan government. Combined, they cover most of the taxi's extra cost, Touma said.

Sloppy reporting again, only the reporter feels stating the actual cost of the subsidy is not necessary.

He doesn't know that the subsidies are funded by tax payers.

Wish I could receive subsidy to send my children to college and high school.

I don't like the chinese as well but they are not as hypocritical like the US, France and England which preach about freedom and human rights but support or prop up tyrants in Africa and the Middle East.

The don't go around bossing other countries or tell them how to run their affairs or use the IMF to enforce austerity measures that create untold sufferings on the citizens.

Those of u supporting this nonsense created by Trump, don't complain tomorrow when prices of most things increase. As America the manufacturing base to take over at short notice if the chinese decide to stop export of finished and semi finished components and materials.

I don't think it does. When two elephants fight it is the small creatures that get hurt.

Be wise and think twice what u wish or support as u may end up being the victim in the power play.

Brainwashing is not an act mastered by only the chinese or NK as we are made to believe. It is practised by every govt on this planet.

I can't believe that in this age of technology that it is not possible to know whether huawei is used to pass data to the chinese govt.

Posted in: IOC confident Tokyo can resolve complaints over budget cuts See in context

Death by overwork, known as "karoshi," is a problem in Japan with employees often forced to work long hours despite government measures to try to prevent it.

What are the govt measures the person who wrote this article is talking of.

There is too much cut and paste articles these days.

If one was new to japan or resided abroad one would end up with the false view stated above.
