Posted in: Hello Work, Go To Travel, My Number Card; the English used for government programs is strange and doesn't make sense to native speakers. See in context

I’ve heard the reason they do it because apparently it’s “oshare”, it’s trendy and fashionable. Yeah, nothing trendier than poorly thought out and incorrect English on things.

Imagine what they’d say if other countries did the same with Japanese

Posted in: idol Moga Mogami deflects criticism of decision to have child out of wedlock See in context

Children need, in fact demand emotionally, the loving support of a family environment, essentially the diverse support of a Mother and Father, the sanctity of marriage in a modern-day society, plays second fiddle.  

sorry what century are you from? if the child is raised with love, attention and support, it wouldnt matter if the child has 1 parent or 100 parents.

Posted in: The Japanese government is considering cutting back on child allowances for high-income households with two working parents and divert the funds saved to creating more daycare centers. How do you feel about this? See in context

This should have happened years ago. It’s announced now but we all know Japanese beaurocracy, it’s going to take at least another three to five years to actually happen.

Posted in: 'Hanko' to be abolished for all but 83 kinds of official documents See in context

I have a Hanko but I never use it. I just scribble my name over the place where you have to stamp it. It’s met with child-like confusion and a “chotto...” while looking around for another drone who might know what to do. then I tell them I don’t have one and that this is the same thing.

In every single instance they accept the document. Shows how much people at the counters care.
