Dang. And that's the "democratic" country Japan and USA are supporting?

And no one of the people who decided on this tarp saw this coming. No one.

Such a joke (⁠≧⁠▽⁠≦⁠)

Posted in: Japan to require firms to expand support for employees with kids See in context

Or they could try a just simple but very efficient solution that doesn't require too special treatment for specific people. And that is, not doing unnecessary overtime. Do overtime when on a deadline but other days, they just work.

Done. It's so simple and yet, such a mind blowing sci-fi thing in this country.

Poor mom. I can imagine what she must have gone thru when trying to brake the child free.

Wait. That's it!? A black tarp on the other side of the road and not on top of Lawson? (⁠≧⁠▽⁠≦⁠) ha!

Don't use colored sunscreen. The moment you start sweating you'll turn into a Na'vi from Avatar or Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Yawn. This is just a waste of money and energy. Cops didn't stop anyone doing things they shouldn't in their mamachari's before, and they won't do anything now either.

Christians would do just the same ore worse if they were to run the government. It has happened in story already. State and Religion are not meant to be together.

Posted in: 2 Vietnamese nationals arrested amid spate of burglaries See in context

The second guy got caught while overstaying his visa. On top of that, he was in the company and possibly in connection with the robbery. He is soooo literally screwed. Going to a deportation center first for who knows how long, then jail if he's connected with the other crimes.

Throw the entire book at them.

To liberate Gaza, step one, get rid of Hamas. Bury them twenty meters below the ground.

Step two, whatever government they set, it needs to be separate from religion. No Islam, no Christianity, no religion. State and religion set apart.

Posted in: Japan to introduce online booking for Mount Fuji trail See in context

@theFu If you want less people, do it before or after the "official" hiking season, a month before or after. Waaaaay less people and some of the huts are still open.

Posted in: Woman in her 80s dies en route to hospital after ambulance takes wrong route See in context

Wouldn't using Google Maps solve the problem?

It is not a good idea. Google maps doesn't take into consideration how big your car is and roads in Japan are often narrow.

Better to use the Navi in the vehicle, and Google Maps as a secondary option if really needed.

When it's time to go, it is time to go. Have she arrived 13 minutes before, she could have died just the same.

Start your own business and enjoy your Freedom, and never work for anyone.

Now imagine if everyone would start their own business and no one would work for anyone...

Posted in: New Tokyo restaurant charges higher prices to foreign tourists than Japanese locals See in context

Yeah, Japan is not a xenophobic country...

They can paint it as "foreign currencies being higher" all they want. But at the end of the day, when this becomes viral, it will be all about xenophobia.

Good luck.

Of course yes. It's such a common sense thing. Too bad Japan still stuck in the previous century in so many ways. Even many of its citizens see this as a necessity and yet, the dinosaurs still prevail.

Why deciding to close down? They could have chosen to use fish caught in Chinese waters. I'm sure their waters are pristine, top quality fish...

Bad, no one really knows how they calculate the premiums. Certainly not the muppets at the city hall.

Good: I can afford to get sick and ride and ambulance.
