Good initiative. More trainees from friendly and free nations like Taiwan, Vietnam and Philippines please. They come because they love and want to live in Japan, not for the money.

The fee of the school is base on your yearly incomes.

Somehow this is right and wrong, because... it takes from past year, when my wife got the second one... she took 14 months off from her job... (she didn't get pay for few months) yet ... i had to pay FULL price for my other child which was 20000 yens. Now they both go to school and i'm paying 30000 yens (the scond child is half price)

They just didn't eat enough carrots ;) , and it can also be genetic. Now, about spending time on screen and gaming... u gotta look why it's happening, most of the parent let their kids playing with their phones to get ride of them, instead of doing activities with them.

@ John Beara

Why on earth would you deprive your kids of an EU passport?

And why would they need it? Don't you know? Japanese passport is the number one passport in the world.

Why it's so hard to follow rules? japan don't allow to hold 2 passports. Deal with it and stop crying. She made the wrong move....

If you born in japan... u're japanese, if u born in jamaica... u're jamaican... she wasn't born in Japan. Period.

Be Japanese or not, and if u're not and wannabe... then fil a form and apply for it.

My two kids were born in Japan, my wife kept asking me to register 'em in my own embassy and i always refused.

Posted in: Father arrested over death of 2-year-old stepdaughter See in context

One would think that these kind of crimes happen only in Japan.. but not, when i look up at news from other coontries like france, belgium, ... same things happen... i mean it. Last week in france, a sister and her boyfriend beated to death the little brother (9 years old) because he didn't want to do his home-work ......

Meanwhile, i have 2 kids, my boy is 5 years old, and my girl is 14 months... she cry of course, yeah it can drive me nuts lol, but when babies cry, it's for a reason, and if u're smart enought... u can figure it out quick.
