Posted in: Man arrested after yelling ‘I have the coronavirus’ in Nagoya drugstore See in context

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.

Traveling for a while at the end of this Month. Baht, rupee, ringgit all weaker vs. the yen. Excellent

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.

Its 6 freaking months away. much ado about nothing. I bet we will look back on this in August and scantily remember a cruise ship and some bat in a wet market.

Posted in: Japanese husbands in survey say they do half the housework and childcare; wives say 'Nope' See in context

JtSnose, very valid point. My Mother was a champion soldier and my father was injured as an athlete. Thus they decided to cook on every other Tuesday and only.one would vacuum on the weekends. But both would clean the bathroom when they felt good and my father more so since he was more physically capable.

She needs material to be able to complain about him while she's at the French cafe, Italian restaurant, Starbucks, park, English lesson, swim school, dance class, etc..

Posted in: Typhoon makes landfall on Izu Peninsula; one dead, at least 50 injured See in context

Typical overreaction by the news and media. Nothing more than some rain and wind here in Nagoya, yet they decided to cancel our Korea flight yesterday without even waiting to check. Glad everyone got all their bread and water yesterday!!

Picture is Japan in a nutshell. Mom and her mother with single kid out shopping for parachute pants on a Tuesday while the husband is hour 8 into his 14hr shift.

Posted in: Dwindling of South Korean visitors takes toll on Japan businesses See in context

Nakano, You could literally replace Korean with Japanese word for word and it'd be exactly the same. Except maybe the Japanese wouldn't protest because, meh, shogenai, there's some Pokemon Go to be played.

Lets drag this out. Going to South Korea for the second time in a Month on a 4 day wkd for about 10k round trip. Way better than boring Nagoya.

Posted in: Top doctor sounds alarm over heatstroke at Tokyo 2020 Olympics See in context

Collegepark, that's a great inadvertent point. Maybe if Japan observed daylight savings and didn't have absolutely absurd summer sunrises of 445am, then it wouldn't be so oppressive even at 7am. But of course, no need to change things , Just keep on keeping on Japan, and continue to fall behind the rest of the open advanced world.

Posted in: Japan heat will suit our game, says All Blacks scrum-half See in context

35?? yes, today, tomorrow, and maybe a few more days this week and early next week. Beyond that, it'll be a warm but comfortable high of 28-30 in the day and much cooler at night for the duration of the World Cup. Hardly insufferable heat and humidity. The whinging of mostly British folk and Japanese in Japan in regards to the heat is overblown and lacks perspective. The summer this year was from mid july to early September. 6 weeks, thats it.

Nobongna, glad to hear it . Keep flying JAl or Ana at 10x the cost. by the way, how many accidents has AA had with all those old rusty planes?

Posted in: Do you think laughing loudly during a movie at a theater is rude, bearing in mind that in Japan, for example, the subtitles may not be able to convey the meaning of a joke from English into Japanese? See in context

Not at all a problem here. Do you not hear the high school, uni aged kids purposely laughing way too loud in restaurants, cafes, stations etc? Such an affectation. I'd laugh out loud just to exact revenge in a theater.

Posted in: Trans debate rages around the world, pitting LGBT+ community against itself See in context


Men and women cant compete against each other in sport because women would get trounced at every professional level not to mention the threat of injury as well. No one would be laughing if a woman were paralyzed or killed while playing rugby, american football, etc.

Posted in: Hawaii eyes tourism jump from Japan's longer Golden Week See in context

Ridiculous, Japanese love to spend money just to spend money. Found flights from Osaka to Manila and then a beautiful island elsewhere in the Philippines for 52K total for the 10 day holiday. Enjoy the teems of people, overpriced everything, and packaged tourism of Hawaii and Japan during GW!

Posted in: In Japan, Valentine's Day gives women chance to treat themselves See in context

Just another lame excuse for Japanese ladies to get together in one of the huge packed department stores and buy chocolates and drink coffee and shop on their husbands hard earned dime all the while complaining about him. What a culture.

The whaling of the ambulance siren; Japan's national anthem. I would be happy with less noise pollution if they cut down there cases by 20%.

When are Japanese women going to move off of those ridiculous looking parachute pants?! It's such a bad look; so unflattering, lazy, and uninspired.

Posted in: 34-year-old teacher arrested for raping elementary school girl in Chiba See in context

This is potentially a 12 yr old girl we are talking about, so you have to factor that in. Maybe the teacher didnt look upon her favorably, or didnt take to her in class. Can't be so quick to convict. But if there was physical evidence then it shouldn't take more than a day.

Posted in: Do you think the world is more dangerous today than it was two years ago? See in context

@katsu, how exactly is the world more dangerous? Please look up all the stats, internationally, domestically in almost any country and you'll be proven wrong. All of you are so caught up with the silliness of Trump that you assume everywhere is more dangerous. Islam is a menace on the world, and will last way beyond a Trump and his policies.
