Posted in: Musashino city in Tokyo rejects proposal for foreigners to vote in referendums See in context

I’ve bene here for over 20 years, paid a hell of a lot of taxes and social security and never took a dime. I like Japan and the Japanese but my experience is this is no country for foreigners. You’re accepted here as long as you stay basically transparent and shut up. So be it, I stay on making money but this is the way this country is run by the elite of old angry little men and it will never ever change

Posted in: Japan launches COVID-19 vaccine certificate app See in context

Apps no apps whatever, the point should be, 80 percent are vaccinated, the government is however behaving like it is still 2020. They go apexxit whenever a new variant shows up. The virus will mutate forever and stay with us forever so we will need to return to normality right? When not of now with 80% vaccinated??!! This is all getting ridicoulus and so many people are ending up under or unemployed and it will cause very very big problems

The LDP has basically been in power forever so there’s so much sleeve that it is impossible to change this country. All those stimulus packages show that they’ve non plan anymore, just baramaki here and there. Japan desperately needs fresh political blood

Japanese inspired forests? Like just tree stomps? That’s what Japanese managed forests usually look like once they showed their love for nature in Kalimantan or PNG…..

“Chasm opens between words and action” wow!? What an amazing surprise! I mean, the last 25 COPs have had such an amazing track record that one could hardly expect COP26 being a talking shop with little or no action. I’m flabbergasted, how could that have happened ;-)

Posted in: Kishida pledges $10 bil to aid Asia's zero emission path See in context

I always wonder where they get the money from, in the case of Japan it’s debt to gdp ratio is already approx 260% throw in the private one as well and we are looking at 500%, it’s staggering, never in history a country was that much in debt. This is serious stuff for everyone interested in economics. I’m flabbergasted

Posted in: Beach blocks See in context

@speed, you're spot on, this being Japan don't think they'll follow scientific advise. There is a lot of money to be made by dumpib those tetrablocks into the ocean and by paving every single beach in Japan over with concrete so it will only stop when we start sinking into the ocean. It is a fact that Japan has the highest usage of cement per head. I mean, just look at the beaches, instead of moving villages to higher ground after the Tsunami tehy buil 30m walls. I've been to visit these villages recently, you couldn't make it up, had a kaisendon at a seafood restaurant and my view was a 30m concrete wall, unbelievable....

Posted in: Japan promoting 'mother cow' ethical wagyu exports See in context

I’m very interest in animal welfare, raise 100% free range chicken for eggs which I sell. I can tell you from my experience, animal welfare in Japan is basically a joke! Exceptions do exist but are very few. Almost all cattle here, wagyu or not live 24/7 chained in a barn. That’s the reality! I suspect this will be a marketing gag to “blind” overseas customers.
