Posted in: Girl injured by 17-year-old boy's suicide leap in Osaka dies in hospital See in context

I can not imagine walking down the street and getting hit and dying from some idiot jumping onto the street below. What a waste of two lives. If you want to terminate your life, please consider how to to do it, the consequences and how your death and means will impact others. Not to be mean but people that commit suicide are definitely in need of therapy but don't take others with you if you decide to end yours.

Love this photograph. I have many of my daughter during the girl's day celebrations in Japan that were also celebrated here in the USA that look similar. Its nice that children can enjoy their cultural heritage and are safe enough to walk around their neighborhoods and enjoy their lives.

Please give that child up for adoption and not throwing away a life. That child could have been a parent or a person who made the world a better place. Life is precious dont waste it selficiouciily to satisfy your personal needs and where is the father? Sad story.

Posted in: Japanese manners debate: Is it OK to tell your coworkers 'I’ve found a new job?' See in context

I do not think it is proper to announce to your co-workers that you are leaving for a better job. What message does that send to the company and it's employees? It is better for that employee's manager to announce the departure unless that person was terminated and have a going away party in some izakaya.

Office culture is of course different all over the world but any company's biggest asset is not the product but the people who support the product and wake up each morning excited to go to work and like their management IMHO.

Posted in: Judo in Japan getting unwanted scrutiny for abuse, violence See in context

I learned Judo in the 1960's from a French Judo sensei who was a world class Judo master and have only had to use my skills once. When I was out on the town with my late j-wife in Shizuoka we were walking home and came upon a bar where a guy was tearing it up. I went into Judo mode and put him out on the street, pinned him down and called the cops who were surprised that a gaijin nailed this guy. It's amazing that your basic instincts kick in when necessary.

Posted in: Comments by Trump's doctor on symptoms, care spark confusion See in context

Is Trump clinically able to be the president of the United states? Personally I am very uncomfortable with what is going on with Trump, Corona virus and all the etceteras. Makes me want to store all my stuff in a shipping container, liquidate all my assets and buy a casita in Costa Rica.

Posted in: What are 'kira kira' names and why Japanese parents choose them for their kids See in context

My late j-wife and I gave our son and daughter traditional Japanese given names. Personally I dislike all the unconventional spelling for unusual names but I am old school and I am not going to change and hopefully others will understand my ideas, good or bad in their opinions.

The government should shut this down and put the promoter and participants in jail. Why, because they are exposing many people to the virus and spreading it. Profit over protection???

Posted in: After mixed messages from White House, Trump said to be improving but next 48 hours 'critical' See in context

I think Trump and his cronies made this charade up. Why, it's because he can use this event as an excuse for losing the election to Biden. Trump does not like being the president and this is a way out. IMHO

Posted in: 4 million acres burned in California wildfires See in context

I am currently living in my US California home and we received fire evacuation alerts on our cell phones to prepare ourselves to leave, air is full of smoke. Pretty scary stuff. In Japan you have earthquakes and tsunami's, California we have earthquakes and fires plus unaffordable living conditions, my family members on the East coast are dealing with tropical storms and hurricanes and we all have to deal with this Corona virus as well. Tough times for all and hope this settles down. Be smart and stay safe.

Posted in: Trump to spend a few days in hospital as virus diagnosis rocks presidential campaign See in context

Not wearing a mask and meeting with people already infected is insane. Pelosi should be put in charge and Pence in his usual behavior mode has not even made a public speech and says nothing. The president is incapacitated and the law says that when the president can't function the role of commander and chief passes down the ladder, which would be Pence then Pelosi but Pence is and is not a leader. Hope our enemy's or perceived enemy's don't take this opportunity to their advantage.

My son who was born to my late Japanese wife and I plan to hike Fuji next summer to spread the last of her ashes at the summit. It's on our bucket list. We had a great view of Fuji san from our apartment in Shizuoka city during the winter.

Always be careful about how you criticize your host country. It is their county and not yours's that you criticize. You are living in another world and need to understand where you are living. Wake up.

Why don't the shop owners in Nara who make the majority of their income from tourism feed these bambi's?

Posted in: 16-year-old boy arrested for cutting cage wire mesh at zoo, allowing 70 monkeys to escape See in context

Watch 12 monkeys with Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. Set them free, zoos are prisons for animals. Zoos were created for the amusement of people that want to see exotic animals but be protected from them. Zoos say they are doing animals a favor and saving them from extinction. Maybe we should round up a lot of ethnically different groups of humans and isolate them in in human zoos to protect us all from extinction. Maybe that is why we are going to colonize Mars??? LOL

Posted in: Fuji's 1st snowcap of the season See in context

My apartment in shizuoka had a magnificent view of Fuji san in the winter months when there is lower humidity. Lived in shizuoka shi for many years and through my times there even recently visiting I love the atmosphere but it's getting to much like Nagoya or Hamamatsu, big city and losing it's small town feel. Younger son and I will hike Fuji san and stay in a hut near the summit then a few hours before sunrise will sprinkle the last ashes of my late wife and his mom on the summit.

I have 2 sons in the us navy or reserves that say why is the USA messing around with the world and why not let all those regions figure it out themselves. Why does the USA need to be involved in other regions issues.

First of all how do you check into a hotel with a 10 year old girl? The hotel should also be held liable for this tragedy. This sick person should be sentenced and placed in you know where.

Posted in: Peach plane diverts to Niigata airport to offload passenger who refused to wear a mask See in context

First of all, why does the airline not hand out surgical quality masks to each passenger and make them sign a document that they will wear the mask while aboard the aircraft or be denied entry. If you don't comply, the aircraft will not depart the station and that customer will be charged for all expense related to the delay and be removed from the flight. Where are the air marshals on this flight?

Posted in: Annual dolphin hunt starts in Wakayama whaling town See in context

Sad practice. No need. Barbaric. I was at an izakaya about 25 years ago with a Canadian buddy having a meal and drinks, he ordered a dish that I tried and it tasted terrible and he told me that I had tried porpoise. My late j-wife told me that in school their lunch meal included whale meat and she said it was disgusting and like chewing fish bubble gum.

Posted in: 50-year-old man arrested for beating 20-year-old wife to death with fishing rod See in context

Sad story. Don't know their situation but she should have run out of their home to a neighbor or police box for help. As far as the age difference, I can't comment but there are plenty of spring/winter marriages that work as long as both parties are happy. Who beats their wife or children to death and for what reason? Hope he receives the full extent of the law for his crime.

Lost at sea in a typhoon, I cant imagine. Don't understand why the skipper did not head for smoother areas. Dont drive through a storm fully loaded. God bless all their souls and families.
