Posted in: Figure skating gets more attention than Toyota's problems in Japan See in context

The Japanese don't like bad news and secretly they have huge pride in the Toyota name. Now they have inner shame. The president has scurried over to congress and apologized in the Japanese way.In Japan expressing regret,then carrying on as if nothing ever happened is more than adequate to get you out of most bad situations. The public hate any bad news,especially as toyota have put shame on the country internationally..so as usual they just bury their heads in the sand, look the other way,change the channel and watch the olympics.another problem solved the Japanese way. There are intelligent people in Japan who access foreign media or read quality newspapers but they are in a small minority. I love watching the TV news when they do report a terrible crime in Japan,the newsreaders read the report with a serious face,then when finished they stare at the desk for a few seconds,maybe a sigh or a humm,then back to a report on someone who went to an onsen 'kirei' then ate some 'oiishii' food...and all is well in the world.

and the reason why they didn't find him until 9pm was that there would have had to be liaison meetings about further meetings between the rescue services,lots of standing around until everyone was satisfied that the correct channels had been followed,form signing,lots of lip sucking and can coffee drinking...and then finally being careful not to tread on anyone's toes then the search would start...too late

Sounds very strange My 2yr old boy would freak out if he was left outside alone..and i would never leave any of my kids alone with dogs. probablly she got engrossed with some mindless garbage on TV or her Ketai

Japanese kids have very nice skin,but once they get into their teens and twenties the girls skin is awful.I think Chinese,Korean,Thai and Fillipino girls have much better skin than japanese girls blemishes,huge moles and sun damage maybe someone has been looking at too many photoshop images on the net.
