Of all the ways to commit suicide, I can't imagine why so many choose to jump in front of the trains.

Posted in: New law takes effect, banning smoking in gov't buildings, schools See in context

Many schools have secret smoking areas for teachers to hide and smoke between classes or during planning periods. I don't think that will change. Maybe if there were more designated smoking areas available it wouldn't be such an issue for many establishments. Starbucks allows smoking if they have an outdoor area btw. Starbucks isn't famous because it doesn't have smoking indoors, it's famous because it's expensive and many people see it as popular so they go there. I wonder if they will include smoking around the city walking around the sidewalks.

Posted in: Feminist scholar calls Japan's gender problem 'human disaster' See in context

I have to agree with Chizuko Ueno. The issues women face is shameful. If only we could switch the roles and let men stay at home while women go work 40+ hours a week to provide for the family, then men could understand. Let women have the pocket money and make the man handle all the rest of the money. Then maybe men will understand. Let men walk home late at night having to watch over their shoulder for women following them. How about women grabbing on men in the trains, maybe then men would understand the struggles women have to face on a daily basis.

Posted in: Record 3,500 people involved in cannabis cases in Japan in 2018 See in context

They have pretty low numbers compared to some countries as far as drug crimes. But, Japan thinks marijuana is such a bad "drug" but ignore the high amount of alcoholics in the country. Alcohol is accepted and overly celebrated as a normal part of Japanese culture. The healthcare industry in Japan benefits from the health problems that come with alcohol and tobacco. They would lose money form the legalization of marijuana.

Posted in: Fukushima contaminants found as far north as Alaska's Bering Strait See in context

Fukushima was a terrible disaster. The way it has and is being handled is also a disaster. Japan tries to cover up and control the information about it before they announce anything to the public. Which makes it funny that someone issues a Japanese web link to defend their point. Lol

Posted in: No. of foreign workers in Japan triples in decade to record 1.46 million See in context

So Japan is willing to bring in more foreign works but still doesn't make sure foreign workers get treated like the Japanese workers. English teachers still get screwed over with things like unpaid hours, no breaks, companies logging false hours to avoid paying for health insurance, low pay based on nationality,...ect. they should fix what's already going on before opening up to more people being screwed over.

Here I was thinking I have to be stuck being an English teacher. Reporting these incidents in English is just an open money market for New ideas. Great job.

Posted in: How come Japanese couples don't say "I love you" to each other as often as their Western counterparts? See in context

Easier to say it and not mean it, than to mean it and not say it. I give it away like free kittens and it's like abaracadabara pudy in my hands.

Posted in: 9 reasons why Japanese men hesitate to say 'I love you' See in context

Many Japanese women welcome the phrase "I love you" pretty openly from foreigners. . It's often used to get women to sleep with foreign men. As far as Japanese women not wanting to meet a foreigners parents, I've never heard of it. Most are eager to meet them as they see it as a stepping stone to marriage. The words "I love you" have quite a bit of power in Japan when a foreigner says it. Use it often and you can get what you want.

Posted in: Employees reveal absurd company regulations See in context

I work 9 and a half hours non-stop with no breaks and an extra unpaid hour meeting once a week and one unpaid two hour meeting once a month as well as the company falsely reporting 8 hour work days and claiming we get the one hour break. It's just how black companies operate in Japan.

I guess being 2018 people will complain about anything. I would think that the fact their child is dead would be the source of emotional distress. Would they be upset if the bandages were soaked in body fluids?

Posted in: Kindergarten employee arrested for abusing 5-year-old boy See in context

To many weak teachers here in Japan try to ignore these bad kids and it just causes other kids to act the same. Dragging an unruly kid out of the class by the arm is far from abuse. I've seen these types of kids bullying the smaller good kids and ruining the whole class just to get attention. Kudos to Ms. Yamanaka and shame on the snitch teacher.

If people were so easily compensated there would probably be a rise in false reports in hopes of getting free money.

Hope you don't mind me asking, were they just tinder hookups?

@goldorakd I don'tuse Tinder. Seems to be more women in their late 20s early 30s desperate to get married on there in my area. As that age group of single women seem to fall in that category in Japan. There are some members only clubs (not drink dance type) that cater to people looking for a date. (Not a paid date) Although Japanese is needed as they don't let most foreigners in.

Theres not much they can do to stop this. There are far more sites open that offer the same service for free. Try as they might there are always ways around them trying to block websites or find who creates them.

Trump will be the first president to accept a sit-down with North Korea. While former presidents cowered away from the idea or sent someone else as a diplomat. Glad to see someone making moves others were afraid to.

Fukuoka in my opinion is the best place to live. Big city without all the overcrowding and crazy foreigners. Nice beaches without the threat of tsunamis. Beautiful weather and women.

If she is a housewife then I'd ask why not.

Posted in: Women in Japan reveal their worst dating experiences See in context

Ive had quite a bit of first dates at love hotels. Most of which was decided by the woman. Most of them continued to the have multiple dates all going straight to the hotel. Many will even pay as some of them aren't spending their own money. It just depends on the person you are with. Some people can be enjoyable no mater what you do or where you go.

Posted in: Civil servant spends 20 minute hitting on schoolgirl; gets arrested instead of a date See in context

The man didn't stalk the girl. He seen her twice. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. There's nothing wrong with flirting with a woman or a man. This case has nothing in common with the Lindsay Hawker case. Which is completely of topic. There isn't a single mention of her saying no to anything. One can add their own content to the story all they want in an attempt to make their points valid. Let's stick to what is in the article and not add in our own version.

Maybe they will get married later down the road and have a funny story to tell their kids. These articles paint a sad picture for Japanese men in the struggles of dating Japanese women.

Posted in: Imported dolphins See in context

Its not illegal in Japan like browny said. As long as people will pay to see dolphins and other animals do tricks and flips they will be bought and sold. Just because something is illegal in your country doesn't make it illegal in Japan. It is a way some people put food on the table for their families. Like it or not it's part of Japanese culture.

Posted in: Civil servant spends 20 minute hitting on schoolgirl; gets arrested instead of a date See in context

Hitting on her twice does make it stalking. You can't assume he would ask her again and again. If he had a record of stalking maybe. It's probably just some young guy freash out of Uni seen a cute girl and tried to see if she was interested in him. I'm not saying his approach was spot on but he's far from stalking. I see the same people on my daily transit, even a group of high school girls who always say random obscene things in Japanese to each other about me. I wouldn't consider that stalking or harassment.

Why do people keep bringing up stalking?

He seen her twice. Most likely they cross paths on their daily commute. That is not stalking.

Also he wasn't charged with sexual harassment. He was charged with obscene conduct in violation of the Prefectural Anti-Nuisance Ordinance.
