Posted in: Made in America: U.S. brands that became Japanese See in context

I love Mister Donut in Japan. A Japanese friend who went to college in Ohio just told me about Lawson. I love all Japanese convenience stores! You can eat healthier at a kombi in Japan than anywhere in USA. Pitiful. “If it’s not hot enough, I’ll put it BACK in the microwave,” said the waitress to me at a very popular restaurant in USA. A millennial kind of place.

Posted in: Do you find Japan's rising sun flag offensive? See in context

Yes, there are two different versions, the single red sun dot and the one with red lines streaming out from the sun. That’s the one some countries have problems with still. I’d say it’d be better if it wasn’t used.

Posted in: Symbolic night with 'goddess' to wrap up emperor's accession rites See in context

I agree with old Shin. I don’t think one yen of tax money should be used for all this emperor and king system mess. No disrespect for the persons at all. I just think it’s high time for all this mess to stop.

Yep rgvivilian, you’re a civilian alright. Military standards must be very strict. No place for foolishness because it will affect the lives of others. Live or die. Win or lose. Those jerks must be disciplined.

Posted in: Korean Air reports increase in number of in-flight smoking incidents See in context

Yappari, Korean Air. I used to fly them, smoking was terrible back then. There seems to be something about some Koreans who think they can just do what they want. Some Americans, some Russians, some Chinese, some Japanese, etc. Some people. Come down hard on them suckaas.

Posted in: What do you think of the names that Japanese automakers give to their cars? See in context

In USA, Tundra and Tacoma trucks use Toyota’s TRD... What?! TRD?! We know what it stands for, Toyota Racing Development, but we also know what TRD looks like. Ridiculous.

Eeeeeeeheheheheheee...not fun, boys. I don't have to use them, yet, but dagnabbedit if me old bladder don't work so good these days (English learners, don't put too much stock in my language usage sometimes). And my 14 1/2 year old chocolate lab needs them. I've learned that the adult diapers work better than anything else I've tried for her. She leaks bad all day long. Vet gave her some medicine yesterday that I hope helps. Meanwhile, I go into stores with bags of adult diapers, female kind, she is a female dog. Chichi po'y hole is different place than boy dogs. My two year old granddaughter likes watching me put diapers on dog.

Posted in: Typhoon highlights need for multilingual disaster alerts in Japan See in context

It seems like some areas are doing good, like Hyogo Ken, as zichi mentioned. Maybe because of the 1995 quake there. Anyway, whew, Japan has been hit hard for the past several years. Let's all help one another and take care as much as we can. Hey, we're all in this together.

Posted in: Gov't funding for imperial ceremonies sparks rare dissent See in context

I don’t like the king/emperor system at all. And don’t think taxes should be used to finance these people. But I do think since the system is in Japan, the emperor and empress have a lot of responsibility, and I always hope the best for them in their roles. The UK system is the most ridiculous to me. Whew...

Kommie pinko China. Case closed. Wha’, trust old panda faced Xi and his despot cohorts?! Right. I have so many social demerits for panda faced Xi jerk, he’d have me locked up if I flew on a China air plane. Which I will not do. Hey Xi, you old kommie pinko despot panda faced jerk. There.

Posted in: China asked NBA to fire Rockets exec over Hong Kong tweet: Silver See in context

I loathe kommie pinko Chinese leaders and followers. On behalf of freedom longing Chinese people, allow me to call old panda faced Xi a low life despot panda faced kommie pinko jerk. A freedom longing Chinese cannae even think those thoughts. Hey Xi, you jerk. Yes, I have many social demerits in China. And don’t care. Except I do care for Chinese people who long for freedom.

Many here got it right, especially Crikey. Teachers who bully other teachers should be fired. Workplace bullying, etc. No wonder kids bully so much.

Oh me, Japan has surely been hit hard in recent years, and this story is heart breaking. Osamu Sekine-san. One of Japan’s truly great family men. And his wife. These kinds of people are the salt of the earth. I have many Japanese friends like this. And love them.

Posted in: IOC apologizes for abrupt plan to move Tokyo Olympic races; Sapporo mayor not notified See in context

Like many have said, October should be the time for Japan olympics. When normal people get sick and die from heat in August, it seems foolish to continue to keep summer olympics that time of year. Japan is not Greece.

Nothing artificial for me, as much as I can avoid it. Real meat, in moderation, is good.

I always pull for the locals in agriculture. But also in manufacturing. And this is where Japan whipped USA years ago with cars. USA car industry seems to be doing okay, but I don’t know. Old zones above is right.

Posted in: Japan will consider release of oil reserves if necessary See in context

Wait. Iran just blatantly bombs Saudi Arabia oil facilities?! You mean a country can do this and get away with it?! Seems to me that Saudi Arabia allies should step in and blow the smithereens out of Iran. I don’t see how this should be allowed to happen.
