"Sunny Shiga", remember that name and find out the name of the manager and owner. Bet there are yaks there.

Comparing Son to Horie is a mistake. Son is already "hammered down" because he is ethnic Korean and already excluded by Japanese society (couldn't get a job in a top company, etc). Horie is full Japanese and therefore subject to the "hammer down" rule. Now, here is a mind-bender for you: one oft-cited stereotype of Japanese is that they complain about being 'misunderstood'. Try that on for size. LOL

But the Kamikaze attackers would have attacked civilians if they could have gotten close enough or if the military targets were not simply more urgent. It was not 'morality' or anything like it that caused them to be used against military targets. So, they are the same.

I am far more concerned about out-and-out human trafficking than anything a schoolgirl does in her off hours. Let's talk about that, shall we?

Not getting paid for preparation time is standard behavior in the free lance English teaching community.

Regarding jpn_guy's comments: very good discussion. Japanese culture is as basically exclusionary as many western cultures are (ideally) inclusionary. They will eagerly look for new ways to exclude each other (Nazi blood typing being one of these). It's just the way they are. Fortunately, I don't care. But, I feel for you. You tried very hard. I have lived here for 24 years and it has been lovely because I have never expected to be accepted by the locals nor wanted to be. I have my own circle and am content with it.

I've met some very sexy police women. As genjuro said, put them in a school girl uniform and start busting and ADVERTISE the bust. Japanese, being moral cowards by nature, will quickly learn to keep their hands to themselves.

It happened where I live, too. A healthy cat suddenly became horribly ill. It had been fighting with someone else's cat and...guess what?

Karma sucks. Should have apologized when you had the chance. "Regrettable" is not an apology, it is a whine.

Now they can add some little pointy things to the end to make it easier to pick up food. That would be really brilliant design. They can call it a fork and the business end will stay safely in the air, just like these. lol

Women tend to be bigger sexists than men on an individual level, this is true. However, men continue to benefit from systemic pay and promotion sexism that endures from the past, so...whatever!

The Japanese themselves are immigrants, they are simply becoming a little less mean-spirited about it...and about time.

Just walk in! If they call the police, the police will arrest the restaurant manager or no one at all because the law-breaker is the restaurant manager. And the police can explain the law to the manager. Enforcing the law is the police function. Let them do it. Just walk in. Don't be a moral coward.

Japan's suffering has always been mostly self-inflicted, yet they whine constantly, every year. The suffering of others? "Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil". We know what species said that lol

Every Japanese owes their life to the forgiveness and generosity of America. Every Japanese owes his or her livelihood to W. Edward Deming who reformed Japanese industry into the global powerhouse it is today. We foreigners built the Constitution and the economy. But god forbid we help out a few starving and near death foreigners because "that would change Japan". Ridiculous! Japanese is already the 51st state, thoroughly changed.

Quote: "Recalling the past with profound remorse over the previous war and sincerely hoping that the tragedy of war is never repeated, I, together with people across the nation, express my heartfelt sorrow toward those who fell in battle, and pray for the further development of our country and world peace." TRANSLATION: War just happens, we suffered, too. It had nothing to do with the democracy-hating, opponent-murdering, criminal military that my father allowed to take over the government. Chit happens. Let's move on because I'm not man enough to face the truth.

Until Japan, on a deeply philosophical level, admits the utter criminality of the war-time regime, they will only have three types of status available to them, in the eyes of the world: 1. Jerks who can't admit the war-time regime was NOT a moral peer to the Allies but was more like the evil Nazis; or 2. Ignorant children who don't know what the war-time regime was like...and don't want to know because they are moral cowards; or 3. Finally, fully adult, respected members of world society. In modern Japan, only a few of the liberals are in category 3. Most citizens are in 2. Thanks to the over-weighting of the right-wing farmer vote, the professional politicians of the LDP are firmly in category 1. That's all.
