Meanwhile still haven't received my Abe ¥ despite applying 2 months ago here in Nagoya during the first spike. Anyone know who to contact/responsible ? City ward, city govt or national?

And how many deaths? 1 or 2 everyday for weeks. Wear masks, avoid unnecessarily large gatherings, and let people get on with their lives.

Exactly. The police only seem to target men, and younger people. Housewives and older people always seem to get a pass here.

Manwhile the Chinese have developed the first quantum entangled satellite connection. Such soft 'cultured' wastes of time and energy like this is why Japan continues to fall behind Korea, China, Taiwan, etc. The same goes with singing and dancing to 'teach' English.

Posted in: Japan's izakayas, once a staple of after-work socializing, crippled by pandemic See in context

I enjoy izakayas but come on; with the beers that come quickly, the surcharge cheapo appetizer, and the small dishes that necessitate many dishes, has anyone ever left an izakaya paying less than 30$? Its not cheap like a night market in SE Asia or quick fry in China or Taiwan.

Full time?? Gimme a break man. You ever been outside the office or house on a weekday? Once they ship the kids off to school at 4 or 5, they have all the time in the world to shop, meet at cafes, parks, restaurants, department stores, have _____ lessons, take day trips, weekend trips....shall I go on....?

Posted in: Black Lives Matter rally held in Tokyo See in context

How exactly does this help the cause.?? Most Japanese have no idea or concerns for this, most will never meet a black person, let alone discriminate against them. This is just a bad look for black people and the movement in general. Blocking traffic, creating all kinds of noise and disturbances in general. Imagine if Japanese did the same in Harlem protesting Korean comfort women statutes for example. Would that go over well? Me thinks not. Leave Japan and Japanese people out of this and target areas where this is a problem. Bad optics that won't help the cause in Japanese eyes.

Yawn. I feel sad that the young/women in this country would rather spend a ton of their (daddy's/ATMs) money on a fantasy land rather than travel abroad and experience a new culture and country. Such insular thinking doesn't bode well for the future of Japan .

Still waiting for the 10k stimulus application here in ketchy Nagoya.

Posted in: Have you ever been stopped by Japanese police, and if so, what for? See in context

More than I can remember, almost always while riding a bike. I guess a tall white dude is their mark, never went past a few questions but it's frustrating to the point I'll bike in a different direction when I see them all camped out on major intersections.

I find it interesting how caustic the comments are when a man died. If this was a grandpa killing his infirmed wife or a mother killing her kid there would tens of comments expressing their outrage. Sad state of affairs with misguided beliefs amongst the weebos here.

Posted in: Japan more likely to completely end state of emergency on Monday See in context


There was never an outbreak to begin with here. There was never a large cluster to begin with. My point being, everyone kept saying that the deaths and cases were artificially low because there was inadequate testing and once that was corrected we would see the real numbers. Turns out the virus never hit Japan hard at all, irregardless of testing.

Neither. I'll save the money a 2 day trip to either requires and go somewhere in SE Asia.

Noriajohn, haha get real. No way Nagoya would ever cut the rates, perhaps only for those over 60, they get all the discounts here anyway.

Nagaland, "she probably got very little support from her husband.." that's a reckless assumption to make, you have no idea their family situation.

Simon, because she doesn't have a job. Do you make money being a mother?

How about a sign for all the housewives or old people who walk interminably slow or stand in groups at the top or bottom of escalators, staircases, or right in the middle of a busy thoroughfare.

Where are the dead people? A month into this and there are no dead people so to speak. So please tell me why is it there are so many apparently untested cases here yet such a miniscule amount of deaths. Please someone explain.

I said it last week when that guy went drinking full well knowing he had the virus in Nagoya, I'll say it again. Nagoya is the worst area in Japan.

Posted in: Parents worried about impact of school shutdown See in context

Japanese moms forced to be moms! The horror! No more all day school/club activities. No more after school (insert your class here) to dump the kids off at. No more time for lunch dates, shopping dates, English/tennis/yoga class. Life is hard.

Posted in: Abe tells Trump Japan preparing for Tokyo Olympics as planned See in context

Derp!!! Derp!! Of course the Olympics will be cancelled. America has cancelled all sports leagues indefinitely, thus America will cancel the Olympics. Cry me a river but the $$ America shells out for the Olympics is what counts. And when that disappears no IOC member will give a second thought to British cycling, Japanese Judo, Korean archery, French crossainting, or Australian rugby.

Mrheisei, she's unemployed because contrary to what many want you to believe, a stay at home mother or housewife isn't a profession or job.

Posted in: Nagoya Women's Marathon limited to elite runners See in context


Worked here in Nagoya for a while, can confirm over a handful of women have told me they ran the race expressly to get the necklace. It's the same as snowboarding, skating, hiKing, etc. They go out and buy the $$ gear, only to be used once then rendered useless as a boring pursuit. Truth hurts

Post the women those chinsy tiny tiffany necklaces. That's all 98% of them care about.
