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.

Sad story all around. Loss of human or animal life is tragic. Can not imagine being trapped inside a sinking ship or thrown into the ocean in a typhoon. Good job for the Japanese coast guard. Life is precious and dont waste it.

Posted in: Canada's top doctor urges mask wearing during sex, no kissing See in context

There are other ways to satisfy your partner other than direct intercourse. As far as using less alcohol so you don't make a decision to have less safe sex is wrong. Alcohol on your skin or in your body via beverages kills bacteria and viruses so drink responsibly, lol.  What about using the toilet, sinks and showers. What about cooking, eating and using utensils and appliances, touching door knobs or any knobs. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get.

Posted in: Handheld mask for dinner use See in context

Interesting product, where can I buy stock in this mask company as this will become a Japanese fad for a while? Do they have hello kitty designs too? Order out or get home delivery instead of going out and possibly spreading this virus until we have the vaccine.

Posted in: We visit a new Tokyo bar where nobody speaks and writing is the only way to communicate See in context

I can still speak passable Japanese but my writing skills are no good anymore. How can I enjoy a place like this without tension or anxiety. I guess I would need to put on my big boy pants and find a different watering hole.

Posted in: Japanese grandmothers create 'Monkey Busters' group to fight primates with airguns See in context

These monkeys are not going away unless their food sources dry up. Love the granny monkey buster squad but someone is going to get a pellet in the eye. Build cages throw food in them and capture some of those monkeys. They may wise up but you're going to get a bunch before they figure it out. Also get hunters and dogs and pay them 20,000 yen for every monkey they bag. They are stealing these people's food, money and efforts. Stealing is stealing.

Posted in: Japanese divorce rate drops nearly 10% during coronavirus stay-at-home time See in context

I spent 2 years with my late Japanese wife 24 hours a day and it brought us totally together and taught me care and compassion. Bad outcome in the end but I am a better person. Before or after you enter into a relationship a couple should stay isolated together for a while to see if they can handle a serious longterm relationship despite differences and accept or resolve them. I hope this positive trend continues in Japan.

What is the purpose of this machine? Would you want your millionaire next door to own this and is not be a certified pilot and let alone allow to fly this aircraft maybe into their driveway. How are you going to control this type of air traffic control? This makes no sense. Why are there investment firms putting money into projects like this?
