“confidential childbirth” that allows pregnant women to only reveal their names and contact information to medical staff.

Only name and contact information... What's confidential in this?

How much did it cost? Could we use tax payer money a bit more rationally?

Been living in Katsushika Ku for over 15 years never had any problem there. I guess this could happen anywhere to anyone. Have to be careful of your surroundings, Japan or not.

Posted in: Old-school Shibuya Hyakkendana neighborhood targeted for urban renewal — Will it lose its charm? See in context

There was already little to no soul left in Tokyo this will make it even more bland with uninspired architecture.

I would hate for Tokyo to become the new Singapore.

Congrats Japan, too bad for France it was a close call. Judo is getting a bit boring nowadays, everything is decided by penalties... Bravo Teddy Riner on his 11th title!

Not sure which was the worst, my phone and wife screaming their lungs out in unison at 4Am or the relatively mild earthquake which would have probably not woken me up.

Posted in: Man arrested over murder, attempted murder after noise dispute at apartment in Aomori See in context

To be noisy at 3PM is ok I guess (depend on how noisy of course and your tolerance level, which is extremely low here)... 3AM would have been a different story.

My main beef with noise in Japan is 1. inexistent insulation 2. ambulances/fire engines/police cars... Do the entire neighborhood need to know there's an emergency at 2AM?? Sirens should alert the crossing surroundings not half the town

Posted in: Masks stay on in Japan as 3-year request to wear them ends See in context

 Thankfully people here wont go crazy about those who choose to continue to wear them.

And thankfully the same about people who decide to not wear them anymore...

Guess they did not got the memo... 99% were masked, I was the 1% (baka gaijin I guess...)

Posted in: Nintendo's profit slips amid chip crunch See in context

The fact that the Switch was released in 2017 with little to no innovation since (switch lite and LED only) could also explain it. Lack of new exciting games too, where are you Metroid Prime??

Posted in: Kishida, Italian PM Meloni agree to form strategic partnership See in context

They just should agree on what is acceptable to put on a pizza, corn and mayo=no!

Also get the recipe for real carbonara...

That would be a more useful summit.

I think that they could spend this time on some productive things than racing through the gates of shrines to get a barrel of sake.

Like racing to work?

Maybe a 73 years old company employee should be first, able to retire with decent pension, or at least not assign to a truck driver position...

It does not take much to be considered a criminal in Japan... Good skills though! I used to roller skate in the subway of Paris (the coating on the floor was super smooth), thrilling experience, bit dangerous I agree but i never made the news... nor those guy should.
