Posted in: Lost something on a Japanese train? Look for it at the railway’s lost-and-found market See in context

If you look under some of the tables you will see boxes of items most likely bought in China that they sell as well. Because there is no way people lost a box of 10 identical items. I suspect there is a bit of a scam behind these sales.

Posted in: What to do if you are stopped by the police in Japan See in context

Best thing to do is just keep telling them you don't speak Japanese and that you don't understand. Most police officers don't speak English and will easily give up and leave you alone if you aren't really doing anything wrong.

Posted in: Apple launches iPhone 11 series in Japan See in context

Sounds legitimate. Let's wait in line for hours for technology that has been out for 2 or more years. Let's wait in line for out dated features and over priced repairs. There hasn't been an iPhone that can out perform Android. If you like simplicity, limited features, and design buy an iPhone. If you like the latest features and designs you won't find it in an apple store.

There are many ways to use your phone hands free these days I don't understand how this is still an issue. I use my phone while riding my bicycle all the time with a bicycle mount and never have any issues.

There is absolutely no reason to change it. The traditional way of putting the family name first is what we do in Japan. I'm not sure what the big deal is.

It doesn't make sense to allow people who aren't citizens to vote. If they want to stay and have the right to vote then they can go through the process to become a citizen. Those not willing to forfeit their citizenship to become a Japanese citizen shouldn't complain.

As for your "more accurate" description, you literally made the same points with different words. Congratulations, you did a great job of giving the same description. Although the bottom portion was just misinformation.

You say that Japan doesn't allow dual citizenship, yet it puts people through this official performance and, for those who just chose Japanese nationality, it is a dual national who walks out the door...

Once the person decides to chose to retain their Japanese nationality, they have to give up the passport of the other country and relinquish the the citizenship. If they don't then Japan will automatically revoke their Japanese citizenship. So no they won't be able to be a dual citizen.

Posted in: Trump's fake accent angers Asian Americans as they veer left See in context

How can you pull someone up for using "halfu" and then teach them instead the incorrect "half"?

How is using half incorrect? If his wife is Japanese and he is not, then his children will be half Japanese. What was it that Donald Trump did that was considered mocking?

 I suppose if someone was talking to your Japanese wife or halfu children this way you be fine with it...

How can you criticize someone for doing an accent, then do it yourself by using the word "halfu" instead of half?

Can you imagine the backlash and outcries of racism and white supremacy if people said the same thing in regards to America?

Anyone who claims racism and white supremacy because of deported people breaking the law would just be uneducated useless people who don't understand how the law works. Usually known as SJWs.

For all the comments about children, the spouse or child of Japanese nationals is the visa for foreigners who married a Japanese citizen or if there was child over 20 that chose the foreign parents country for citizenship. A child born in Japan from an international couple is a Japanese citizen and doesn't have a visa, they are a citizen of Japan until they are 20. At 20 they can decide if they want to be a citizen of the foreign parents home country. Then they will loose their Japanese citizenship. Japan doesn't allow dual citizenship. The 80+ cases are most likely going to be the fake marriage people.

"The article does not state whether or not the parents were holding the child’s hand."

Use common sense. If they were holding his hand the child would not have been hit.

They need to crack down more on the people getting these visas. They also need to crack down on companies hiring foreigners and cheating them on their hours and avoiding the health insurance program. Most English schools are bad about that. Most of them are black companies.

Why would a parent not be holding their child's hand when crossing? Especially if there are sirens and lights flashing. Probably another parent staring at their phone while they should be paying attention to their children.

Does this include jobs that hire based on gender? Some places only hire specific genders for jobs. For example, esthetician salons, bars, many office jobs, some teaching jobs, construction work, clubs, and many more. Should they have to offer jobs to any gender?

I see people taking their kids to the bar all the time. I hope they don't arrest the mother. It will cause a lot of problems for her son and husband. This is a lesson she will never forget. I still can't believe the driver didn't make sure they made it in the house ok. Many drivers will walk you to the door. Sad story.

Why would someone take a 4 year old into a pachinko parlor in the first place? 23 years later, she has probably been raised and brought up as someone else's daughter and has no clue. That's if she is still alive.
