As if the predators are always local Japanese people and they limit themselves to local Japanese victims. Half of the situations from the video happened to me in real life in Tokyo.
If you’re an innocent bystander trying to help, you shouldn’t be afraid of spending few hours at the police station. Your cowardly excuses are truly pathetic.
Also, if you see something and choose not to react, you’re just as guilty of the crime as the predator. Someone got hurt physically and/or emotionally and that’s on you, too.

Narrow-minded people might not understand, but foreign residents live their lives here, pay taxes and contribute to the society just as much as (and in many cases more than) Japanese residents, therefore they should be eligible for the same benefits. We're not talking about tourists getting married in Japan, but people who have made a commitment to move here long term, and trust me, Japanese government does not give away resident visas to just anyone. This country is benefiting from having foreign residents here, so why deny them the benefits available for Japanese nationals. All residents, including foreigners, were eligible to receive the COVID 10k JPY payment (rightfully so), so why not apply the same rule to other benefits.
Also, this may not be a popular opinion, but gay couples can adopt babies (and female gay couples can even give birth themselves - imagine that), so imho they should be eligible too.
