Posted in: New York Times makes a surprising pick for the best city to visit in Japan See in context

You guys don't understand. this isn't a top.of list or anything of that sort, it's a random list of places people never thought to visit. They do it every year so of course it's not gonna be Paris, Tokyo, HK on the list.

Look at a map of the subway and train system of Osaka and Nagoya. Osaka is so much better covered. There are entire areas in Nagoya city that are 15 to 20min walks from the nearest station, especially out east towards fujigaoka

Live in Nagoya, can confirm it's a boring unfriendly city that is based on cars. This is actually in Nagakute city which is outside Nagoya. From Nagoya station you need to take the subway to the end of the line then transfer to the slow, once every 10mins, expensive Linimo train. Will take about 1hr and about 900¥ one way.

Where is the killers mother in all this? Why hasn't she been interviewed or asked questions? Not even a picture?? She is a responsible adult who ruined her entire family and she is just completed let off the hook?

Posted in: Summer in Japan doesn’t feel like a Japanese summer this year, many are saying See in context


It's not been that hot outside of that week when rainy season was declared over. People love to complain about the heat here but it's not nearly as bad as it's made out to be.

The media should do everyone a favor and not report on anything she does until she wins again.

Posted in: Girl who disappeared in Yamanashi in 2019 confirmed dead after bone DNA test See in context

Hopefully this will finally allow the mother and family some closure and the chance to move on in life. Although I read on Japanese news sites the mother believes DNA testing isn't fully conclusive so there's a chance she will still see her daughter again. Unfortunately I don't think the mother will ever accept the reality and move forward w her life.

Posted in: Disney hasn't found itself in this much trouble since 1941 See in context

Disney is evil. I just had a son and I will do my best to not get sucked into the Disney world. I'm not worried. Never spent a dime on any Disney crap. Feel bad for the hard working salary men in this country whose wives and children drop thousands of their hard earned dollars down the overpriced Disney drain.

Nobody likes to hear that , and every other excuse is made, but that's exactly right.


ive noticed the past few years. Lots of women in their 30 to 50s who are softer than a pillow, having not exercised since school days and enjoy a few too many Mister Donuts

Posted in: Which fashion item or trend do you wish would disappear forever? See in context

The baggy pants and shirts Japanese women have been wearing the past half decade. Neither cute, sexy, flattering or fashionable.

Posted in: Train attacker says he targeted Tokyo in hopes of increasing kill count See in context

This is a more twisted depraved cry for help or attention similar to teenage girls slashing arms. He didn't really want to kill people, just hurt them and get noticed. There's no way he could have failed to killed anyone on a packed car w a knife.

Posted in: Survey picks Japan’s most attractive prefectures – Familiar spots at top and bottom of rankings See in context

Aichi and specifically Nagoya has to be the least appealing. No significant tourist sights, bad infrastructure for people w/o cars, and the least friendly and cheapest people in all of Japan.

Posted in: Lack of TV time spoils Tokyo Paralympics' big opportunity See in context

I thought there was more coverage on the internet and in the newspaper for the Paralympics than the actual Olympics. Perhaps I'm biased, but I couldn't care less about the Paralympics. It's the same reason I don't watch high school sports, pro women sports, or learn Japanese from junior high kids.

Posted in: Auckland tops Economist's most liveable cities ranking; Osaka 2nd, Tokyo 5th See in context

And Tokyo is just a massive soulless spread of concrete, chain shops, high end shopping with less and less history and cultural attractions by the year.

Posted in: Auckland tops Economist's most liveable cities ranking; Osaka 2nd, Tokyo 5th See in context

I'd say the only thing Tokyo beats Seoul in is weather and that's just barely. Seoul is way more energetic, lively, lots of things for young people (not old people like Japan) , cheaper living costs, better transport, and more friendly locals w a better grasp of English.

Posted in: U.S. gov't finds no evidence aerial sightings were alien spacecraft: New York Times See in context

So ridiculous this belief in UFOs. So these aliens have the tech to be able to travel millions if not tens of millions of light years completely undetected and then somehow are caught on cockpit camera? And again if they had the tech to get here, they'd surely not be interested in anything we have here on our meager little rock. Either that or they would have mined or gathered whatever they were after long ago. Just step back and ponder how much more advanced any alien species would be...We wouldn't even be able to comprehend much of their existence

So only rich people should be allowed to travel? No backpackers allowed. The rich already control everything else, now let's limit travel to the plebeians too.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 414 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 2,832 See in context

500 cases out of 130mil people. How many people died? Obon, GW, sakura season, Xmas, etc. Give it up people. This was never an issue for Japan and most Asian nations. So long as you weren't fat or severely compromised medically, this was never more than a flu. I can't wait for.the next great heralding of an outbreak from you overweight pithy Americans. It's not a thing here, give up the ghost and go back.to living your life

Pretty Much how.most Japanese women want it. Keep quiet, dominate their home life while living lives of coffee dates, tennis lessons, English class, bakery visits, and day trips to bitch and moan about their useless husband's. The wool is so fully turned down the men don't even know what love is .

Posted in: 2 gay men caned 77 times for having sex in Indonesia's Aceh See in context

Another disgraCeful act by Indonesia. I've traveled all over the world and it's the one country I'll never return. Beautiful sights but the people and culture was so off putting I was dying to leave after 2 weeks traveling . It's the 4th biggest country in the world yet it's still miserably poor and has contributed nothing to the greater world . Sharia law is horrible, and holds the country back.
