Posted in: Man arrested for pushing woman off station platform in Tokyo See in context

The man can't retire and is fed up with life.

Randomly attack someone and asks for life in prison. Free bed and free food, no going to work, stay in bed all day reading manga.

It's his retirement plan.

Nobody wants a son over 30 still living at home.

But it's also jot the son's fault who could never get a real job.

Conflicts become inevitable, leading to incidents like this, where both are just victims of a dysfunctional society.

Posted in: Over 50% of seniors in Japan wishing to be in work unemployed: survey See in context

At old age you're supposed to move to countryside when retiring.

People are unwilling to move out of Tokyo and other large centers, they can't afford to stay either, so they rather go back to work to afford the bills.

Posted in: Japan calls for power saving from Tokyo households, industries during summer See in context

No, thank you.

Industries are the real expenders, not me.

Posted in: What is your impression of dating apps? Are they a good way to find a romantic partner? See in context

Dating apps killed relationships.

People do not build real connections anymore, at the first sign of conflict: "-next!".

I know, I have been with over 20 women from dating apps since I came to Tokyo and I myself behave exactly the same.

Posted in: Tokyo June heatwave worst since 1875 as power supply creaks under strain See in context

Between walking to the train and from train to the office, I am literally melting down. I'm going to disappear this way, anytime now.

I'm just going to email a link to this article to everyone who called me paranoid when explaining why I will never drive vehicles in Japan. And to this day I stand to my decision.

The unfortunate reality is that Japan borders must be closed again and my coworkers waiting to enter the country must give up.

"Omicron"... the virus is now a Superhero comic book character.

Posted in: Japan to issue ¥22 tril in new bonds to fund extra budget See in context

Your children and grandchildren will pay for this debt.. but who cares about more bonds when a country is already drowning in them anyway.

Posted in: Kishida outlines record ¥56 tril stimulus package to fix ailing economy See in context

Did they not learn for the past 30 years that printing more money solves nothing?

Big corps and banks absorb everything.

Posted in: Japan's economy contracts on shrinking consumption, exports See in context

This is the perfect time to make immigration of skilled workers even harder, right.. because the way it is now, good professionals are choosing South Korea, Australia, China... waving goodbye to Japan.

Doesn't make any sense.

NY is ridiculously violent place.

They are going to need bodyguards 24/7.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 31 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 216 See in context

In my company there are several engineers waiting for permission to enter the country. And the bureaucracy is absurd, now that they are advertising border opening, it's not open at all. For the average people, you can even be detained for several days for trying to enter Japan and if you don't cooperate they can remove your residence status, the virus used as excuse.

This is all politics, the USA is the biggest Covid focus ever, but Japan impose less restrictions than on other countries such as UK. we all know why.

Posted in: Whenever you read about random knife attacks in public places or on trains, does it make you more attentive to what people around you are doing when you are walking along the street, waiting on train platforms, aboard trains or shopping? See in context

Never give your back to people on trains.

Stay standing and backs glued to the wall. If anyone has a knife, cover your hands / arms with a coat or shirt if you have no option but fighting for your life.

Buy a foldable iron rod for self-defense.

This is just corporations flexing their financial power. Nothing changes for the average person.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 23 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 287 See in context

World wide, deaths surpassed 5 million officially. The real numbers are much more than that, because many are not reported. Mathematical models suggest pandemic lasting for next 6 years, given current vaccination rates, Japan will not open borders any time soon.

Posted in: China could step up armament, provocations near Senkakus, think tank warns See in context

I have never understood and will never understand WHY the world decided to give China so much money and global influence, knowing very well their ideologies and pretensions. They have been plotting moves for communism to dominate the world for the past 40 years and the whole world just got along with it.

Posted in: Nikkei ends above 30,000 mark for 1st time in over 30 years See in context

As I've said here in April, I bought stocks in March covid crash... I was expecting to see a return by 2025, I still can't believe I have made so much money in just a few months. From a crashed market to a massive bubble in the blink of an eye. This is crazy!

Posted in: Netflix offering full Tokyo anime school scholarships with living expense support, open to foreigners See in context

Too bad animators in Japan live below the poverty line. Jobs give no benefits, no insurance, majority have to live with other animators in community houses to cover basic expenses.

Posted in: Woman keeps body of common-law husband in apartment for 10 months See in context

Funerals are becoming exponentially expensive. These cases often happen for fear of not being able to afford a proper funeral and person involved enters a spiral of despair ultimately unable to take any decision or action. When my time comes I will probably donate my body to science to avoid leaving my family to deal with this hurdle.

Posted in: U.N. nuclear arms ban treaty leaves Japan in a dilemma See in context

In the name of financial profits and political "power" these politicians and their military arm threaten the future of the entire planet. The scientists who helped to develop these weapons lived the rest of their lives in depression and shame.

Posted in: Japan's exports, imports fall due to pandemic See in context

I believe this is just the beginning.

If China insist on not collaborating with US demands for economy recovery (and seems they will not), the world is headed towards yet another cold war.
