Posted in: Another cabinet minister, 100 cross-party lawmakers visit Yasukuni shrine See in context

Every year time it seems many get confused about what is going on at yasukuni, here, let me clarify for all once again!

Politicians going to yasukuni are NOT repeat NOT going there to worship Japan's war dead!!

Politicians GO to yaskuni to WORSHIP, WAR CRIMINALS, PERIOD!!

If war criminals were removed the politicians would dry up pretty fast at yasukuni.

It really IS that SIMPLE! What it also sadly illustrates is just how little many were supposed to have learned from WWII!!!

Posted in: School bullying cases hit record high in Japan in FY2018 See in context

In my experience the numbers quoted tend to be WAY TO LOW so 543,933 realistically is likely double to 4times higher!

Also the number of ELEMENTARY students bullying is insanely HIGH, seems they are being ""well"" indoctrinated in the DARK side of being Japanese....! Scary stuff!!

Bullying seems to be part of the culture, be it at school, the workplace, or in sports.

Pukey2, sadly bullying IS INTEGRAL  to being Japanese!

Posted in: High on ease, low on nutrition: Instant-noodle diet harms Asian kids See in context

instant ramen is JUNKFOOD, hell even "fresh" ramen at restaurants is JUNKFOOD!

I eat the stuff sparingly, when I do I load it up with veggies like spinach or komatsuna, carrots, peppers, whatever is around & usually toss in an egg.

the KEY is NOT to make this stuff a REGULAR part of ones diet, but even here in Japan consumption of this junk food is rampant!

Posted in: 87-year-old man arrested over wife’s murder in June See in context

Said it once, say it again, this country is failing its people left right & centre!

Expecting people who have lived, in this case, 8+ decades to be able to PROPERLY take care of a spouse is just ASKING for this kind of thing to happen...….

And it does on a daily basis nationwide, its one way the govt is taking ""care"" of the nations elderly......by doing nothing & letting nature & frustration take its course!!

So do YOU wanna grow old in Japan...….. riddle me that one!

Posted in: Deluged bullet trains show power of nature over modernization See in context

......sigh yeah the BS propaganda certainly grates!

These bullets trains in Nagano are what the generators in the BASEMENT are to Fukushima!!  Simple stupidity!

As another astute poster mentions above, with FULL KNOWLEDGE of a huge typhoon, services stopped, WHY ON EARTH were these trains not moved from the yard to tracks with higher clearance, TOO SIMPLE, yet I suspect have never have been on the minds of the "powers" that be at JR!!

Posted in: Japan home to 3 of world's 10 best largest cities: U.S. magazine See in context

Also, what on earth is Osaka doing on that list? A bankrupt, treeless concrete wasteland where a pint of ethyl alcohol and a burnt squid on a stick is a gourmet meal?

Haha Alfie you almost made me spit out my coffee LOL!! A bit harsh, but also a bit truthful, I have had a few sticks & drinks in Umeda area in places like that LOL!!!

Japans big cities are GREAT, but also awful at the same time, beautiful & UGLY, again at the same time, part of their charm!

But to REALLY enjoy life in BIG J-cities you need serious COIN to do so sadly!

I live in the sticks & LOVE going into the city when I can enjoy but I also LOVE getting back out!

Posted in: NBA, 'South Park' episodes spotlight Hollywood's China dilemma See in context

As I have been saying for ages & ages THE WEST has played a very LARGE part in creating the MONSTER that China has become!

Now western business & govts too are being reduced to a bunch of ki$$ a$$es  & its become beyond embarrassing to watch!

Its now well past the point, the way China acts THEY have made it crystal clear they are at economic war with the west, ……

Said it before I will say it again its long over due for the west to pull the plug & get the HELL out of China!

The longer we wait the MORE it will cost us in LIVES & LIVELYHOODS!!!

Once again Japans defense did a very good job against the Samoans this time...….next Scotland...…

Cant wait till the 13th!

Posted in: Kansai Electric gift scandal widens to non-nuclear officials See in context

This kind of corruption has been rampant over all industries nationwide since FOREVER!!

Tax authorities have found, meanwhile, that from fiscal 2013 to 2018, orders placed by Osaka-based Kansai Electric with Yoshida Kaihatsu totaled some 6.47 billion yen, and that the construction firm paid around 300 million yen in commission to Moriyama.

Haha so the tax office has now dug a bit just so they cover their own corrupt butts! Typical, now they get to decide who is sacrificed on the alter of corruption so the rest can continue unabated, more to follow!

Posted in: Tech giants beef up body to fight extremist content See in context

As long as this ONLY targets real nasty types......but I fear this will be used like it is already to limit & ban content ""SOME"" don't like, disagree with all the while allowing certain slants of thought free reign to say as they wish!

We need to ENSURE this doesn't limit speech, INCLUDING stuff we don't like!

Posted in: Japan to expand app-using customs declaration ahead of Olympics See in context

Every passenger is stopped and has their passport scanned by Customs in Japan as well as filling out a declaration form-a monumental waste of time in most cases...

I think you are confusing Immigration with Customs, Customs usually only glances at passports if they look at them at all
