They sometimes omit stuff on the mobile sites. I want to know I'm getting all the information. If I have a choice I use the pc site.

Posted in: The new residence card system -- everything you need to know See in context

My main concern about the new card is the re-entry section. At 3,000 yen a pop on re-entries for people leaving the country for a week to not needing one at all makes me suspicious. They are going to lose a lot of money on those re-entries now. Why are they making it cheaper for foreigners and where are they going to make it up? There is something going on with this card that we don't know about yet.

My bet is they give it to people who have never been here before and who have no family members here.

Posted in: 70,000 commuters delayed by quarrel over cell phone on train in Chiba See in context

People using their phones on the train without any urgency in finishing their call bug me but people who sit in the priority section and use their phones are just plain rude and inconsiderate. Having been Monday morning and having 2 people talking on the phone in the priority section would have irritated me too since. The man who got upset could have had a pacemaker for all we know. There is a reason people shouldn't use their phones in the priority section. Personally I think a large percent of Japanese male businessmen on the trains don't even care that they are in a priority seat. When I was pregnant, they would pretend to sleep or be totally engrossed in their book that they wouldn't let me sit down. It's sad to think that so many people could be so inconsiderate. I got so frustrated waiting for someone to give up their seat that around month 9 I just started waking young men up and telling them I wanted to sit down. then they would apologize pretending that they hadn't noticed. They can choose other seats to sit in. Those seats are priority for a reason. People shouldn't have to ask that they be used appropriately. I say hats off to the guy who complained as he was only asking that the other 2 respect the priority area.

I'm a non-smoker and I can't stand walking to the station in the morning behind a smoker. Just because it's outside doesn't mean it doesn't bother people.

Posted in: What is the best way to get more men to take paternity leave? See in context

Is this question supposed to mean the few days off that fathers take when babies are born? Or does it mean the extended time up to a year after the baby is born, instead of the mother?
