After all this time and still, being unable to get in contact with your spouse simply because the prosecutors can't do their job properly.

And Abe's statement will be used against Japan when the case goes to the WTO.

Dude, no it won't. The case was already brought to the WTO and no one cared.

Hahaha, like husband and wife, sometimes, pain is pleasure.

If you're married and your marriage resembles anything like this, it must be a disaster.

this will go on until one of two is out of power, Moon or Abe.

Agree. Hopefully the South Korean people can see Moon for the failure of a leader he has been and opt for someone better.

The matter was already taken to the WTO by South Korea and diplomats from other countries said they're not interested and rather stay out of that drama.

Rest (includes cooling).

Refuel (food intake).


Follow these commands and you shall not fall victim to the dangers of heat illnesses... mostly not.

Ladies scared of the sunshine in contact with their skin? Sunblock is very efficient at that. It works way better than wrapping your entire body with Jersey pants/jacket/hat and a towel around the neck. Like those female teachers during sports days.

Posted in: S Korean cities suspend exchange programs with Japan See in context

Man, this is sad. How much lower and pathetic can South Koreans fall? Cancelling sister cities programs, athletic games, school trips and worse, burning flags. In the end, South Korea is cutting its own legs and will end all alone, with enemies in all sides. No, rocket boy is not her ally. This is really, really sad.

And will those cabins be listed as "non smoking". Coz when your type "non smoking" on for example, the amount of hotels on your net search for Tokyo drops by half or even more.

Moon taking a stroll as friends with that dictator, who'd rather build weapons of mass destruction than feeding a nation. Who also has chemical weapons, who knows what else and keeps some of the world's worse human rights violations. But constantly tries destroy good relationships with what could be his greatest ally. Says a lot about him.

I am often perplexed how posters on this web site can draw conclusions and condemn parents (who are most likely grieving) without having the benefit of all information necessary to make such judgments

That's coz those people are experts in all matters of everything that there's to be known in life and they are far better experienced than everyone else. So it's obvious they can come to conclusions without the need of any proof, evidence, fact, etc....

RIP to the little one thoughts for the family. They must be devastated.

Posted in: 50-year-old cyclist dies after being hit by car in tunnel See in context

10 or so years is good to reflect

To reflect on what? That old tunnels are too narrow and possibly difficult to see what's ahead, when the normal speed of cars is at 60 or so? That many of the roads in Japan have blind spots all over the place, higher walls than cars on corners, houses built within inches of the road, etc?

Tunnels in Japan scare the heck out of me when I'm riding my road bike. After having a close call at a tunnel on the way from Atami to Shimoda, last few ones I encountered I went to the nearest train station and on a train.

So if they really like products from Uniqlo, they will not buy there anymore just because it's a Japanese company and they don't like Japan. Makes perfect sense... not.

The stuff they put on "sale" during Amazon Prime Day is mostly Chinese stuff none would ever buy at any price anyways, so it's pointless. Don't know about the one on USA but that's what I see in the Japanese Amazon.

Doing their best to resolve the issue like... what exactly is he doing so Korea be put back in Japan's white list?

is surely not ideal for the friendship and security cooperation between the two countries

Buahahahaha! Now they talk about friendship. In the 14 years I've been in Japan I don't think I have ever heard Korea saying anything like "for the friendship" of the two nations.

Japan, are you ready for the Olympics 2020? Coz this is one of the things you should be getting ready for. After all, it was you who wanted people from all over the world to come visit.

Research about a country before you go.

I agree. Japan should have done some research about the outside world and their cultures before inviting everyone in.

Posted in: Abe says no need to raise sales tax beyond 10% for decade See in context

If the sales tax was going to go up to 26%, does that mean that my nenkin and medical insurance will be lowered by that 26% too? Coz if not, as it is now between nenkin, national medical insurance and city/prefectural tax are kind of leaving a hole in my pocket. That combined with a 26% sales tax... I think that'd be it for me.

Posted in: New law takes effect, banning smoking in gov't buildings, schools See in context

Went to a new Korean restaurant around my place last night with my partner. The food taste was awesome, good prices. And we were commenting what a great atmosphere the place has. Small, simple decoration but cozy, pretty awesome and friendly service and... and the next table lit up and everything changed. In such a place (about four tables) on person lit up and the entire place reeks of that nasty smell. We finished very quick and left, possibly not going back there again. Such a shame.

Posted in: Game console makers oppose China tariffs See in context

They said the tariff plan would be disruptive to the sector, noting that about 96 percent of video game consoles imported into the United States were made in China.

It would cause significant supply chain disruption to shift sourcing entirely to the United States or a third country, and it would increase costs -- even beyond the cost of the proposed tariffs 

You reap what you sow.
