I smell a scapegoat coming...

"I thought this would happen at some point," said 44-year-old Takashi Yamaguchi, who works at a Thai restaurant in Osaka. "Pandemic measures remain inconsistent in stores, and there are still many people who don't wear masks when they go outside."
Wear them outside? Get out of here!
Takashi probably wears them to bed too...

ICU admissions are still at November levels and have been flat for two and a half weeks. There are only 41 people in the ICU in all of Tokyo.
Y'all can chill.

This is pretty natural response. You can't expect everyone to follow these restrictions forever. We're only human.

Unequivocally yes! Smoking is disgusting.

Japan has previously mulled an annual time change like that in Europe or North America where the clocks go forward in spring and back in the autumn, but has never tried it.
This article is incorrect. Japan did have daylight savings. It was introduced by America during the occupation. Japan got rid of it in 1951 because they didn't like it.

This is the same thing as being led on by a woman, even if they don't want to call it that. "Will boyfriends" should be relabeled as "suckers" as they are wasting their time and money for other motivations that will never come to fruition.
I feel sorry for those guys.

This is racist and snobbish. Country of origin and language proficiency are not related.
If the problem is language proficiency then surely a non-Japanese who can speak Japanese properly should be able to make a reservation.

Ooh, I've been burned by #2 a few times! "Some time" is the best clue.

The PC isn't in trouble yet, but it will eventually disappear. Once a smartphone has as much storage space, RAM, and power as current PCs do, no one will need PCs anymore. Large screens and keyboards will always be necessary but the giant tower will eventually be replaced with smartphones themselves or other more portable devices.
I imagine one would just have to plug in their phone into a dock and have access to tactile input and a larger screen at their desks in the future. Since things will be much cheaper, I imagine this kind of interface will be far more widespread than just one location in your home.
Much like calculators that used to take up entire rooms and no longer do, our current computing power on PCs will be accessible anywhere in the future.

It's not just this incident, and it's not just a problem having to do with non-Japanese either. The medical care system in Japan is just appalling. Try finding a clinic or even an emergency hospital open on the weekend.
In October last year, a Rohingya asylum-seeker collapsed and died at the Tokyo center after staff failed to call for a medic, allegedly because the doctor was having lunch.
Why don't doctors know how to work shifts here?

I don't see why people don't just lie about having the tattoos. The only way the mayor would know is if they went to the onsen with him.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Most people are supporting this? Did I miss the boat or something?
I've dated a woman much older than me and she wanted to get married really, really fast. She also was expecting children immediately after. Never again! An older woman's biological clock will be ticking super loudly in her late thirties, and menopause is waiting just around the corner. Not to mention that the risks with having a child after 35 increase dramatically.
Unfortunately, there is a lot more than just love that plays into this...

It's about time! I would think that there would be more than 1300 angry people over this though...

Japan's taxes are already very high. Japan has resident tax and extremely high car taxes on top of the usual taxes such as consumption tax, property tax, income tax, health insurance tax, and pension payments. Also, the pension that Japan gives out is very, very small. This is how they can afford to give a pension. Although, many Japanese are worried that the retirement age will be raised significantly or that eventually the pensions will run out.
I don't own property and I pay out 26% of my income in taxes at least.

Many owners are young people who save up their earnings to satisfy their dream
How is it possible for a young person to save up a million dollars for a car these days is beyond me. Most people won't even make that in a lifetime.

North Korea has a large amount of people in their military, but it's far from strong. North Korea is suffering from a lack of food, and most places don't even have electricity. They had that one small nuclear test earlier, but I doubt they are anything to fear, unless you live in Seoul where they could launch a preemptive strike and flatten the city in minutes with regular shells.
