Posted in: 60% of animal cafes in Japan deal with species restricted by int'l laws: study See in context

@japancat & MilesTeg, the negative votes you got shows, there are some real ignorant .... in this forum. I hope this reflects not the Japanese thinking. Btw, there are cat cafes where they have cats from the street, and if you want a cat for yourself you can get one there. Much better than one from a pet shop, supporting the bad breeder business.

Have you ever heard a criminal saying "I'm guilty" ?

And most criminals with necktei will never go to prison. I hope in this case this will be different.

I don't understand the thinking of most of you guys.

If you are in a position where you can see wrong doing by the big big boss, you wont say something, because otherwise you'll be kicked out of your job the next minute.

And general it's like this: the little criminals goes to prison, the big criminals will walk free. But this time it looks different.

If I read all what happend, that remembers me at the Clans (from Lebanon) in Germany, where all the big "family" is involved to cheat in every criminal way possible.

There are so many different mental illnesses. And most of these illnesses are a problem for the person concerned.

I don't know if one can trust bombardier.

They got an order for trains in Switzerland for about 2 Billion Dollars. And after that they announced last year, they will kick out 650 workers.

That's how the american world works. Trying to get money even if you don't deserve it or on the base of a stupid reason.

Alex Einz, you're right ... a little bit. I would describe it in other words, BUT the Japantoday watchdogs would supress the post.

"Public sentiment in Japan toward North Korea is generally negative"

Not only in Japan, also here in Europe people hate this fat boy there in NK.

And why should Japan pay reparations? The US never ever paid a dollar in Vietnam, Korea, South and Central America !

I hope the Japanese prosecutors tell Duterte about his two accomplices and urge him to catch them.


For me it's strange that everybody can change his name in Japan. It's like hiding because you did something bad like this filipino scum, or maybe you have bad intentions and change your name.

If somebody has the right to file a suit against Tepco, then it's the Japanese people living near the power plant at this time when the disaster happend.

Not the US residents which only try to get "easy money" from this sad disaster.

Posted in: Prosecutors drop rape case against 6 Keio University students See in context

In some countries, I guess in most of the democratic countries, this crime is prosecuted by law.

It's really a shame, that Japan stays aside in cases like this.

And what the 'an out-of-court settlement had been reached' concerns, there is also a chance that the victim got under pressure from the criminal's side, to agree to a settlement.

Pressure can go from daily little 'stings' up to threaten to kill her.

If I see all the '-' at comments which don't agree with the judge, I assume that there are many idiots living in Japan, too many.

I can imagine what persons in these education boards are. I guess they are themselves specialists in bulling other people. So the panel is more or less a joke, a bad joke.

Posted in: Gov't to survey unpaid medical bills by foreign tourists See in context

How is that possible !!!!

I went 2 times to a hospital/doctor during my stays in Japan. I just had to pay. And the thing was settled.

What kind of tourist were this ... the same who cannot behave, with rude attitude, the ones who flood Asakusa these days?

Posted in: Mentally disabled man dies after being left in car in hot weather See in context

Unbelievable, how diffcult must it be to count to 5.

People how 'work' as helpers but not for the disabled only for themselves (just to have a job, eventually easy work because not doing it serious) should be kicked out of these facilities.

The problem is, that often complaints from the disabled are not heard or ignored, even after one put more pressure on them.

Once I hear from somebody, that while on a trip, a helper forced a disabled person to sit next to a heavy disabled person in the airplane, so the helper had not to care about the heavy disabled person. Later on the same situation in the hotel, the helper went out to enjoy nightlife instead of caring for the disabled persons.

Maybe there is need of more control, so disabled people will be treated more nicely.

Posted in: 'Inhumane' treatment in Japanese hospital behind NZ man's death: kin See in context


I guess the opposite is the case, concerning allowed drugs. My wife had psychotropic drugs, which are forbidden in the States and Great Britain, but not in Japan. For me, this looks like testing on other countries people. E.g. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK admitted illegally marketing several of its drugs for uses that had not been approved by safety regulators) is 'famous' for dangerous drugs - just search for Paxil (Black Box Warnings: Suicide).

But for the family of this poor man, it is very sad. They should have taken him back to NZ to treat, only because of communicating in their own language.

Posted in: Beyond kebabs: Turkish cuisine seeks place at the table See in context

To be stupid is enough to eat this rubbish.

Actually it's strange to eat this things when you have such a delicious, excellent variety of dishes in Japan.

For me it's enough to see the turks in Europe (most of them are anyway supporter of the dictator erdogan),

I DONT need them to see in Japan.

I don't know if you as Japanese know the behaviour of turks, but it is the worst you can imagine.

If you would have a scale on this, the Japanese people would be on the top, the turks last.

But the go turks and kebab goes good together, but stay where you come from.

Posted in: 61-year-old mother arrested over death of mentally disabled daughter See in context

It's very bad what the mother did. But on the other hand - and that's not an excuse for what happend - the Japanese are very good in discrimination. My wife who is disabled, is confronted daily with bad comments related to her disability, when she is on the street, subway or elsewhere. And that's the root of many problems and cases like this.

Posted in: Mother stabs 11-year-old son, then kills herself See in context

@ Dre Hund: In Japan they use dangerous medicine which is not allowed in the States and GB. An other dangerousmedicine is Paxil (name in Japan: Seroxat) from GlaxoSmithKline, with side effect -> suicide !!! http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2012/09/16/news/japans-depressing-increase-in-psychoactive-drug-use. Some people say, Japan is a field for testing. And for the people who thinks to make bad comments here, I hope they never get serious mental problems.

@ vinarius@pm.catv.ne.jp: it's not so easy if you see how agressive some people can be. I would not be surprised if this was some jerk from china. Recently I saw more and more chinese tourists in Japan, and some of them don't care if there are other people in their way. You just get pushed away.

Posted in: Teacher grabs 3 students by their collars, causing them to faint See in context

"we would like to express our most sincere apologies to the students" Did the board also apologies to the bullied students ?????? I DON'T THINK SO. I guess these boards are all the same. The victims get more and more pressure and the bad students will be protected. And if some suicide happens, they did not see anything, they did not hear anything and they did not say anything. Monkey business !!! Shame on these boards.

Posted in: Lotte chairman appears before prosecutors in corruption probe See in context

Since I knew that Lotte is a corean company and not 'clean', I always check before buying products in Japan, that it is NOT Lotte. Same for softbank. This corean lead company should be boycotted. I wonder how many money gets lost for Japan trough offical tax reduction and illegal activities. This question poses also for Lotte.

Posted in: Kanagawa man receives package with explosives, threatening message See in context

Could be a case of discrimination for disabled people. There are still too many Japanese who thinks that people with disability are inferior. But that's not surprising if you know, that only in the 80ies, disabled persons started (or where allowed) to go out of their home. Before they where hidden in secret in their home, like in a prison. I guess, one reason the disability facilities are really well - one of the best in the world - is, that 'normal' people don't have to much contact points with disabled people.

Posted in: Ecuador gov't offers $200,000 reward for killers of Japanese honeymooner See in context

The problem is the corruption. Police in many South American countries is corrupt. So they do nothing (or not enough) against this gangs. And as a tourist, how do you recognize a fake taxi, a fake mini bus or even a fake police officer? Please see this links: http://www.katharinaandpeter.info/index_en.htm http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1069.html#crime http://forums.officer.com/t147904/ But even locals get into trouble, as I heard from a girl who used a taxi, an other person entered the taxi later and she got raped and throw out of the taxi out side the town. I hope you all have happy and safe travels.
