Posted in: Japan's household spending drops at record pace as virus hits economy See in context

If only I got the bloody Abe poketto money of 100k, then perhaps I would have spent a tiny bit more... But still no sign of the money on my account...

Oh. Yeah, and what's next? A movie about world war 2 will be accused of glorifying Nazism?

How about 50 shades of Gray? Rape being glorified?

Posted in: Fuji TV had deal with 'Terrace House' cast on how scenes played out See in context

If people thought that there was no actual script, as they claim at the beginning of the show, then they are idiots.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was the producers who pushed her into what she did, threatening her with to sue her etc, coz she was about to say that what she did was scripted.

I actually know of one such situation personally, of a show that was about to portray a family in the way the family did not like, threatening to sue them for damages and to pay for all the expenses of they did not agree to air the show.

It is still happening, I bet.

Why don't we get rid of the name bronzing lotion (for tanning) too, in the name of equality !?

Please... Who's using these whitening products in the first place? I have yet to see a whitemam or a white woman use any.

At least for the Vietnamese something is happening, but how about letting working visa holders travel in and out like other Japanese can ?

Posted in: European business lobby calls on Japan to ease travel restrictions See in context

Everybody is on about permanent residents , which is understandable but

I am on my working visa, that I need to renew every 5 years, working for a Japanese corpo for the past 7 years, I know of 20 other people just like me (who work for the same company) and another dozen who work for a different company on the same basis.

Now, if we wanted to go to, let's say: Korea, for a business trip, we would not be allowed back to Japan, due to our non Japanese passports.

Now, that is not fair. We are being forced to stay in Japan, not able to go for summer holidays, and who knows, perhaps Chrismas is also out of question.

Somthing needs to be done about working visa holders too. Not just permanent residents!

While protests like that are good and all, there is a slight problem with even talking out racism and police brutality etc.

Sam Harris has a very insightful outlook on it.

Posted in: Tokyo ranked 3rd most expensive city in world for expats See in context

Why do white people call themselves "expats" when they migrate to another country, and all the other races are called "immigrants"?

I would not say white people in general call themselves that, I would say it's more the native English speaking countries.

I don't like it either.

I am a Pole and don't call myself expat.

Its funny how even English teachers call themselves expat. Or YouTubers.

Makes me laugh and cringe at the same time.

Posted in: Many pachinko parlors stay open despite state of emergency See in context

Politicians in Japan have connections to pachinko or at the very least they benefit in various ways keeping the business legal in a country where gambling is supposed to be illegal.

They won't even utter the name pachinko as they are afraid. It's only a couple of announcers on the telly who mentioned it a few times.

Went by one the other day. The lights outside were shut but upon closer inspection loads of people inside.

Deadly virus?

80 percent of people infected have no symptoms. People who are mostly older and or with preexisting illnesses, for them it may be deadly in some cases, but we are not talking about Ebola here...

As for the shopping restrictions, the obachans won't listen. They go as they please.

You can't even buy 強力粉 flour anywhere anymore. Went to 5 different shops and couldn't find a single one...

The demand is definitely higher for uber eats like services. Some people loose their jobs altogether.

But, yeah, uber eats should sacrifice some of its profits and invest in protection measures, like free masks, sprays etc for their delivery persons.

I have a north-facing balcony (very rare in Japan) with a couple of chairs, a table, lighting and even fake grass, unlike all my other Tokyo neighbors. It helps a heck of a lot.

A rich man, eh?

Tell us your address too. Id like to grab a beer on that balcony of yours.

Oh, wait! Social distancing....

Posted in: Coronavirus to cut foreign visitors' spending in Japan by estimated ¥981.3 bil See in context

Lived and worked in Japan through the 90s and noughties. Could walk through downtown Osaka somedays and barely see a foreign face let alone hear Chinese or Korean being spoken.

Just how did Japan survive back then with miniscule foreign tourist numbers?

30 years ago there was much less old people. Now with the old population, being more often at home, (not to mention that in was the peak of Japanese growth in the 90s) foreign money is essential to Japanese economy.

Everyone seems to be on about Karma and that it should sting for Nissan.

But we are talking here about bare 20 million dollars in fine...that will be pennies for them.

Now, among the Corona virus news this will be swept under the carpet.

They chose a good time for a settlement, I say!
