Never heard of this guy before, definitely wears too much make up LOL!!

Yeah, looks like the coppers have been  told to take out another young up & comer, mean while execs at Takata etc are free to walk the streets.....

Japan, where crime does pay, a lot of the time!

Posted in: Renault denounces Nissan over Ghosn investigation: report See in context

The only way out for Nissan is to pay a massive premium on shares held by Renault & end the relationship, which is WHAT they should have done in the beginning instead of kidnapping two people to hold for ransom!

Any has been said too often, SET & start this in COURT!!!

Glad he seems to be recovering from career ending injury, BUT the JSA was still horribly wrong in promoting him to Yokozuna, he should have retired a long standing Ozeki.

Posted in: Property firm Leopalace21 starts asking 14,000 residents to move out due to wall defects See in context

This should be common knowledge by now, construction is probably the most obvious example of institutional corruption in Japan & there are MANY more industries doing the same.

This is why Japan is so expensive & people get so little value for money spent

I don't see much change happening though, politicians & the rich benefit too much from how things are to change

Posted in: U.N. rights committee urges Japan to let children be children See in context

When I compare my out childhood to what I see in Japan I think, thank goodness I wasn't born in Japan!

And also glad we don't have kids here, don't think I could forgive myself raising kids here, those that do I wish you all the best & hope you can add that something that most J-homes don't even comprehend.

Posted in: Sushi chain worker uploads video of fish taken from trash can See in context

Street food is usually fine IF cooked!

I would avoid things like salad, water, ice cubes etc. But NOT because it is unsafe BUT because I am NOT used to the local water, like the locals, THAT can get one sick quick!

Basically come down to common sense

Just ANOTHER reason to avoid super cheap sushi joints, the Y100 ones are downright nasty, sign of how low Japan has sunk unfortunately

The first husband may have been a jerk, but then we don't know what the wife, home life was like, that part tends to get glossed over, forgotten a lot

Lets face Japan treats most of its population horribly!

Posted in: Japan's whalers back treaty withdrawal See in context

I am against large scale commercial whaling, simply ZERO need for it, amply demonstrated by the amount of demand in Japan & elsewhere.

That said coastal whaling I am fine with, and Minamiboso DOES have a tradition, have a go at it, sink or swim on its own

Seems like demand will continue to decrease over time, THAT should be what ends up phasing whaling out, let nature take its course so to speak

It is US, mankind, that is MESSING with things & mother nature is simply dealing with the changes WE are making, but yes she IS the ultimate force in nature & if we continue to muck the earth up SHE will make us PAY, in fact she has been doing so for a few decades but too many cant seem to connect the dots!

That said I don't wish rain, fire, drought, snow storms on anyone BUT they are will CONTINUE to happen & it will get worse

When will we ever learn!

Posted in: If you look only at drone manufacturing, maybe China is No. 1. And if you look at only the software, maybe the U.S. is No. 1. But if you look at integrating it all together in an absolutely safe way, that’s the Japanese strength. See in context

This is a joke right, does Chiba think Apple was invented in Japan or something??

Japan has slowly but sure become more of a parts supplier than product maker, except perhaps domestically, in a quickly shrinking market...……….

Like I have said many times, GRAVITY(ie Mother Nature)  ALWAYS prevails in the end!!

NOTHING we build will last forever, gravity will always bring down what mankind erects, simple as that.

At best we can do is delay mitigate affects.

WRT mining worldwide we will continue to hear about tailing  ponds being breached somehow, we CANNOT contain the contaminates indefinitely it is IMPOSSIBLE.

RIP to those lost in this tragedy.
