A lot of mentaly ill people walking free in JP instead of being locked in a looney house...

I see those every day in the overly crowded trains...

I still feel a million times safer here than any other country...

What I don't understand about Japanese is that, outside of a major city, land prices are dirty cheap, but people still choose to live in a 20+ sq meter apartments..why?

In Tokyo, I understand because rent is expensive. But even in suburbs and rural areas where there are endless empty houses and lots, people are still living in cramped spaces...

Completely looking down on Japan and its society. Why does he get special treatment because he is an American? They make Japan look like a corrupt developing country because the legal rules are different from the US.

Posted in: Amid tensions with Japan, S Korea to boost world awareness on wartime sex abuses See in context

Comfort Women issue is a political weapon Korean politicians love to use. It's easy, effective, and fool pool. In Korea, hate for Japan is institutionalized. Kids are taught to hate Japan, in education and media and anyone that says otherwise are silenced.

Imagine if this was in the US and scuffing a police in the chin and saying he thought the police were gangsters. He'd be tased or worse, shot. Saying he thought police was gangsters trying to scam him isn't gonna help neither. He is lucky he is in Japan.

Korea is clearly bluffing there. Trying to deflect from the original issue of target lock.

Japan should call their bluff and release data from black box on the patrol plane.

Abe will call Russia's bluff, send in Japan Defense forces, occupy the place and see what Russia is going to do. Russia is weak and cannot withstand a naval or land combat with JDF. They cannot nuke due to big bad US. What will they do?

BEST COMMENT. You made my day buddy. LOL

Posted in: Tokyo Metro offers free food to ease crowding on Tozai line See in context

How about just spend the money to increase the length of the train station to accommodate more cars per train. Or increase the frequency of the trains. If yamanote line comes every 2 or 3 mins, i'm sure tozai line can do it to.

Posted in: Russians protest any Kuril islands handover to Japan See in context

It's not like the protesters and Putin have a different opinion on the matter anyways. The protesters can have doubts all they want, he's not going to give them away. Who knows, this protest could've been set up by the Kremlin.

True. No one can predict what Putin will do. I won't be too surprised if he does give up 2 islands but also won't be surprised if he is just giving false hope to Abe for economic aid and a peace treaty while giving nothing. Whatever he does, no one in Russia can stop him.

The whole country is under Putin's control and at his dispense. A rally of few hundred nothing more than a mosquito bite to Putin.

Posted in: 'Short skirts cause sexual assaults,' according to Japanese school uniform poster See in context

I don't see what is wrong with the poster. Ultimately, it is the victim that will suffer, so the girls should do what they can to protect themselves and not attract unwanted attention. No one is blaming the victim, just a warning.

Is telling someone not to flash their expensive watch and stacks of money in their pocket when walking through a really bad neighborhood sound like victim blaming? It's just being careful and not attracting unwanted attention from potential predators.

The reality is nobody cares about the whales. The anti whaling countries talk the talk, but that's it. No country is going to risk having a diplomatic dispute with Japan over whales and sanctions against Japan would never happen.

Posted in: Man arrested for stabbing woman near train station in Tokyo See in context

Why don't Japan make their prisoners work a job like they do in the mid-west american movies? Abe is talking about labor shortages so making prisoners work makes sense. Many roads needs fixing and ditches need to be dug.

Plus why do they deserve our tax money for food and a cell for committing a crime?

Posted in: Takanawa Gateway, new JR Yamanote Line station name, fails to resonate with Tokyoites See in context

The people making the decision on these names are probably in the 60s or older. This is the generation that built and named apartments as "mansions." They think names like "Lions Mansion" or "Diamond Mansion" or "(place name) Heights". They think putting any English word makes its cool.

Mori hasn't been looking healthy last couple years. Old elephants like him need to learn to retire. Time to pass the baton to a younger and more energetic person that is in touch with the modern times. He probably still uses a flip phone and don't know what a PDF file is.

Do the Japanese people on Okinawa want US protection or not?

Okinawa people never needed American protection. Mainland Japanese and their politics are the reason why American bases are in Japan and far away from mainland because no Japanese prefecture wants to deal with them.
