Posted in: Yoshinoya refused to let 'foreign' student attend recruitment event See in context

I think lot of JT readers are confused here.

To get work visa in Japan:

Step 1- Find a company that is ready to hire you and okay with all the paperwork.

step 2 - Apply at immigration (no lawyers needed) but depends on company/individual.

step 3 - Immigration will compare academic qualification/ vocational degree with offered job. If they match you'll get visa if they don't visa will be denied.

***Let's say Mark-san has business level Japanese and vocational course in tourism/hospitality and would be great asset to cash register/ hall staff / Kitchen staff at izakaya X or restaurant Y, Yoshinoya, McDonald, KFC etc. Visa will be denied, no matter what. So Yoshinoya probably saved his/their time by just denying entry.

Hopefully this info will help someone.

Japanese immigration does not recognize Japanese restaurant's/Izakaya's hall staff/kitchen job eligible for work visa. All those employed are mostly hired illegally as IT-technician or R&D staffs and work inside kitchen-Hall. Unfortunately this is very true.

 "It is extremely difficult for a foreign national to obtain a work visa and there is a possibility that you will not be able to join the company even if you are offered a job."

What a waste of AI systems. Its donated money why so much effort? Just make the box little deeper, translucent and with one way open spring-lid system. I bet the AI systems will be a monthly subscription type.

If I'm not wrong J-police have given authority to check visa validity (recently passed law). Hence they ask any alien looking face for valid ID and we can't even deny.

Posted in: Netflix pulls out big Hollywood guns for new production push See in context

Good thing with Netflix is I can watch movies in English/Native language, Multiple user/devices, 4K content unlike AZ prime (don't know about others). But I have to say their library is saturated with basic TV series and takes me at least 10-15min to find what I should watch. Still worth it.

Women overtake men in exam pass rate at Japan's medical schools

In Japan I've noticed that female has always high competition in school entrance (number of female candidates vs available slots) which make them more competitive. On the side note we'll have less creepy oyaji docs ;lD

According to the news and tv there is only Japan.

But how about a single article praising the outstanding performace of a country of only a tiny fraction of this like Norway?

I see load of frustration... ahahaaha. I use to have one when you see all the news and can't figure out who won the match or the final LOL! You live with it.

Instead of getting vaccine to set some positive example as a celebrity, he choose to stay the opposite side. Way more pride. Tennis championship was there before you and will remain after you. Good luck!

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 death toll tops 20,000 See in context

Its ridiculous to see people still doubting on cause of death on reported number. Most of them died at hospital while under "Sevier condition". Most probably underreported numbers. I have lost 10+relatives and friends. This is the typical scenario; patient goes to hospital due to high fever and cold. PCR gives covid+ve result. Things does not improve. Oxygen level decreases. Patient goes under multiple medications. After few days patients is again tested which gives covid -ve results but suddenly doctor declares pneumonia complications and patients die. Cause of death "multiple organs failure".

Export is topping (god news) but inflation is increasing. Ever wonder how other countries can afford Japanese agricultural products but mostly out of reach here in Japan.

Posted in: Tsunami caused by Tonga volcano eruption stumps Japan weather experts See in context

I think most of the algorithms, system and software used are outdated. Since CPUs cost has down drastically, They should upgrade system and algorithm to predict more accurately. These days we can buy supercomputer equivalent system of 1990s. Tidal wave 2.5 earlier? And calculation difference of 4-5m in Tohoku case is no joke.
