Very sad.After living in Japan for more than 24 years I've observed somethings in the society.
1.Cup is very clean on the outside.But inside..?By this I mean Japanese people mind a lot about outside appearance and will do anything to protect that but on the inside,there's a huge problem.
2.Gvt and media have done an excellent job brainwashing the populace that Japan is the best country in the world.Many Japanese people keep on asking me whether I love Japan etc expecting me to reply that I love everything about Japan,but when I reply that there are things I like and things that I don't like,they get surprised.Many Japanese people think that they live a good life but when I compare to many of my friends overseas,life here is miserable.Life here is a virtual robot,die sad,alone and miserable or get killed by a family member who is tire of taking care of you.

What's the difference between Japanese system and North Korean system?NONE.
Japan has been trying to mobilize the international community,the U.N.and even pleading with the U.S.to sanction North Korea for abducting and mistreating Japanese nationals but the Japanese are doing exactly the same.They murdered Wishma and and the only purnishment the officials get is a reprimand?Unbelievable.

Out of curiosity,if she had no other option,would Japan have given her asylum?Or would they have bundled her onto the next flight?Or would she have ended up like the Sri Lankan lady?

This is so sickening of Japan.A Japanese wife only needs to rush to the whoever and say anything and they will believe her religiosly.I have so many friends who are in the same situation.I can never trust the Japanese systems and vowed never to have kids in Japan.And most of this kids live miserably just so that the selfish J wife can go around bragging about the kawaii hafu to her friends.

That this nonsense made it to the media means that there was a think tank,a committee,a series of meetings and finally a hanko from the big headed boss.
What is wrong with this people?
"Retto asu in baato we wiru not retto you in"
Do they think Japan is some sort of heaven or something?
Selfishness and arrogance of the highest level from these old babies.

I cannot fathom why anyone would seek refugee status in Japan!
Do people not read news?
Japan is the last country I would advice anyone to seek refuge.

Let me state this clearly.Most salaries in Japan are below 250,000 per month.
Just go to any hellowork or look at any kyujin.
Jikyu 1,150円,1,200円,残業25%up and zangyou is after 2200hrs.etc.
Those getting over 300,000 per month are in professional fields.
English teaching and combini baito are the same.Break down your monthly salary to number of days then hrs worked.You're getting shafted.Living from hand to mouth.
That's why you find yourself cursing,punching walls and swearing when you get back to your cardboard apaato after slaving the whole day while drinking cheap hapoushu and chuuhai.

She went to seek for help and they murdered her.They reused her treatment saying that she's faking.Yet we have cold blooded creatures blaming her like some above.

Let's do some math here.Average salary in Japan is around 20 man for most people unless you work as a professional.The lucky ones sometimes get bonus.English teaching is about 25 man.
Subtract tax,rent,food,utility bills,miscellaneous and you have nothing left.And to make matters worse,many people slave till death living from hand to mouth.
If I had a chance to pull what the Tailors did..I would go for it.3 yrs in the slammer and maybe suspended for a mil $$$ what the heck..

Chinese boat already sailed.Rest of these G7 countries are trying to play catch up.
My Japanese company has recently been trying to enter markets in developing countries but the biggest shock to the Japanese employees who have had no clue as to what has been going on outside Japans borders is that every country they try to go to is awash with Chinese products.I know many people will hate to hear this,but quality of the Chinese products is quite good and reasonably priced.Japanese strategy has been to try and convince the importing side how high the quality of their products are by trashing Chinese products.Unbeknownst to many is that this kind of mentality no longer makes the cut.
Again Japanese take forever before making a decision. They want to go in risk free.On the other hand,Chinese are on the ground living amongst the locals and even intermarrying.
Difficulty in penetrating these markets has now driven my Japanese colleagues from frustration,to desperation and finally to anger.

There's a difference between "developed"vs "Industrialised"
Having a lot of factories does not equate to being developed.And this is where Japan belongs.

Some of the warnings and advisories by various gvt's are just political.
Since Brexit,other European countries have literally vowed revenge against the U.K.
I can bet that if let's say Russia or N.Korea were U.S.allies,their products would be flooding the U.S market and maybe we would have sputnik in Japan instead of Pfizer.

Since going back to Myanmar is obviously dangerous for then,will they get refugee status or will they be deported?Or will they end up in an immigration detention center like Wishma the Sri Lankan lady who was murdered by the Japanese immigration authority.

Years ago when I came to Japan as a student,I used to sing songs of praise about Japan tnd my family and friends.I used to invite them to visit Japan and used to go to my country with Japanese people and introduce Japanese businesses to my country.
But after living here for many years and seeing how foreigners are treated,I no longer sing the songs of praise and no longer invite my family and friends.
Infact my family and friends have noticed that and they've been asking me to pack up. I have a business here but I'm seriously planning an exit and relocate.

Do you realise that a lot of Japanese nationals travel overseas on tourist visas but end up engaging in business,research,expos etc while on tourist visas?
I have worked with so many Japanese overseas who go on tourist visas but engage in different activities.
If gvt's overseas start cracking down on these kind of visas,a lot of Japanese people abroad would get in trouble.
Think before you spew nonsense.

@Kazuaki are you saying that visa those who overstay their visa should be murdered?Then just pray that a Japanese national does not get caught abroad.
This is murder and Japan as a country should no longer be respected internationally.
The system here is so barbaric.
She went to the authorities to ask for help and instead they murder her.

Pride comes before a fall.Japanese diplomacy at it's best.
They better pray to their divinities that a Japanese national does not fall into the wrong hands in a foreign country.

If you plan to buy a house in Japan anytime from now,then prepare yourself to be surrounded by tens of millions of pensioners and no one to support that pension fund.You won't enjoy house parties and have to slave till the day you drop dead.
