Too much omotenashi for those willingly overstaying and knowingly breaking the law, spitting on the lunch and going violent. Of course the posters here keep spitting on Japan without any follow-ups or referring to the fact that this guy actually had been probationally released most of the time since 2017 and has just been entitled to national health insurance and special permission to stay... and is now about to receive surgical operation for his cancer here in Japan, replying to TV interview... " Thank you... thank you"......

Just the heck, how many Japanese are struggling for jus the lunch he had spit on these days.

I can compare Japan with the UK and have experience of both immigration services.

In fact, I am helping a Japanese national with a possible Visa infringement at the moment in the UK.

She’s in no fear of being incarcerated or beaten or tortured due to a small overstay that may occur.

Of course immigration bureaus are not the best places to visit even in the best of times.

However, I can say that the Japanese immigration service is an outlier due to the number of deaths, beatings and abusive behavior that surface from time to time.

How exactly are you helping overstayers in UK? Besides, what is your definition of a small overstay ?

Please enlighten us here on the boards, how is UK treating those who rejected deportation order?

Yes, in other civilized countries they are polite and professionals. Staff tries to make your stance the most pleasant possible.

Like which country? and they keep you politely and professionally forever?

I guess that only foreigners could be mistreated in an immigration center.

Could you please reiterate a key point? i DidN'T know there are Japanese people detained there.

Heck. For these idiotic posters, there should always be , wherever, whoever, even for criminals ( Yes, Crime)

OMOTENASHI -treatments JUST IN JAPAN.

Bokuda you're right, but sadly all Japan is able to attract now is low quality immigration from emerging economies, young workers from Nepal, Vietnam or Sri Lanka who most likely will not stay, cannot stay and will not wish to stay anyway once they make enough money to go back to a country whose economy will be in a more advanced state that when they left. That is what happened with Thai nationals, they're not coming anymore, why should they now? Europeans of course aren't coming bar a few manga enthusiasts. Soon Vietnamese too will find their currency strong enough to make a stint in Japan worthless and so the JP government will go and look elsewhere, there's an infinite reserve of youngsters in Africa still willing to come. Going back to the present influx of migrants, they don't enjoy freedom of speech or high human rights standards in their own country, therefore Japan to their eyes looks like a much better place to be in. The old dragons in charge here know that full well, that is why they offer those time limited visa to these poor fellas, who unlike us, need to come here and work. and are extremely grateful with their ¥1,000 an hour. Let's face it, not many of us came here in the first place because of a lack of opportunities back home. We came because we liked Japan or had a girlfriend and all looked beautiful. It's only when you start assessing the fairness of the place, the rights afforded to non Japanese nationals that you start wondering how possible it is that the same country you so much loved, is in fact nothing more than a forced and reluctant democracy whose nasty feudal head keeps rearing out! As I said before, this is the best place to be in if you have money enough to stay at home, not working, in a perpetual state of vacation, mentally too. If you stop looking for fairness and leave your ideology behind, you'll be happy here. It's a choice I had to make. By not being a politically active member of society here, you can be a much happier person and at the end, is that not what the average Japanese citizen does? Always withdrawing from expressing one's views, always being boringly alined with mainstream thought? That is political withdrawn. Japanese society is a dream subject for any Western sociologist, but can be a nightmare for an inquisitive, thinking Western mind.

I could understand how you feel. Please think and tell your fellows " There's not such thing like Japanese dream just like there was not " American dream" for ordinary people. At least please abide by law over there and blame the host country afterwards. There's no paradise today on this planet wherever you go

Complete disclosure includes highly private pictures if you know what I mean. These two sisters really want the entire public to watch them to accuse Japan??? I doubt it. How come they could suddenly afford to fly over here despite they haven't done anything when she really needed their help? Those NGO including so-called human rights lawyers behind these sisters are really the one we should focus on

You see? I mean YOU who always call for anyone, anything but LDP.

No. Absolutely not enough to take it over. While the 1st opposition party is this LOW level, how could you possibly expect Japan to change?

Talk and officially issue much more drastic manifesto regardless the voters know those are empty promises anyway, if you are the biggest opposition. All you have been doing is to monitor SNS and flattering all the time.

No wonder Japan has been ridiculed as if no different from the single political party's dictatorship.

Do not Flatter. Show what direction Japan is to be headed. Otherwise, you never ever able to move the mountain ( as per what Takako Doi had once expressed)

Japan really should change constitution and any required laws to completely alter current political system

and kick all those inept, so-called professional politicians out of the scene.

The family should file a civil suit against the immigration authorities for wrongful death and demand the full video via discovery.

This is simply further evidence of how farcical the Japanese “justice” system is.

I believe Agent(s)(for the family, either Japanese lawyer or NGO) has already done.

Posted in: Family of dead Sri Lankan urge Japanese immigration center to fully disclose video See in context

As much as it should morally be fully disclosed, I highly doubt that it will be.

Japan does not want a PR firestorm, so it will be buried, unless they can get some momentum behind them.

Sadly, nobody else in a place of power seems to be rooting for their cause, strangely enough it’s election time, but it also Japan.

Don't you know CDPJ 7 manifestos include the one full disclosure of the video footage? Vote for that party

if you believe full disclosure is the most important for the country

Ridiculous. setting clocks back to the 1930's? How?

Have a look at Nippon Kaigi's agenda.

Here this is HP of Nippon Kaigi and it must be easy for you to point which part of it's agenda are setting clocks back to the 1930's.

Also what part of history or how exactly are Abe and Takaichi whitewshing?

Are you being deliberately obtuse?

I know you are just dodging my question. I ask you again, What part of history, and how exactly are they whitewashing.

And this is a typically disingenuous response.

So you believe what North Korean leaders say by returning someone else's ash rather than Japanese leaders say. No wonder.

When did I ever say that? It's extremely disingenuous to assume you know what other people believe, not to mention bad-mannered. It's little wonder Japanese nationalists have a hard time convincing others of their views with such rude, patronising attitudes. In any case, I certainly don't believe anything Shinzo Abe says.

Then your 2nd sentence starting with "Except...votes" totally unnecessary because none of both Abe or Takaichi officially mentioned they believed the victims had been already dead unless you **disingenuously assume you know what they personally believe as such,** especially when 5 elder victims who had returned were still all alive now

Try to be a politician at national diet having a ultimate goal to become PM, then you feel you cannot ignore or even want to mourn the war-dead from bottom of your heart.

That sentence doesn't bear much close scrutiny but basically looks like a trite, melodramatic platitude of the sort that LDP hacks are always coming out with.

It is clearly you yourself** *extremely disingenuous to assume you know what other people believe, LOL*

What the heck is wrong with amending Article9 whereas there's no countries with such constitutional norms around you? Especially CCP's China officially threatens to make Japan as the 1st exceptional nuclear target、

and South Korea never skip military drills every year around Takeshima?

With all the hard-right nationalist politicians like Abe and Takaichi wanting to set the clocks back to the 1930s, whitewash history and arm Japan to the teeth I don't blame them.

Ridiculous. setting clocks back to the 1930's? How? Also what part of history or how exactly are Abe and Takaichi whitewshing? It is not Japan or they whitewashing but that CCP China and both Koreas are fabricating history isn't it.

What the heck is wrong with doing the best and whatever possible to recovering the abductees?

Nothing. Except when you know or suspect they're all dead and are just keeping up the pretence of trying to rescue them to win votes.

So you believe what North Korean leaders say by returning someone else's ash rather than Japanese leaders say. No wonder.

What the heck is wrong with mourning the war dead at the very place where the war-dead themselves had promised with each other " We could return there anyway. Let's meet at Yasukuni"

Anyone who thinks politicians like Takaichi go there to mourn the war dead with all the media watching them is very naive.

Try to be a politician at national diet having a ultimate goal to become PM, then you feel you cannot ignore or even want to mourn the war-dead from bottom of your heart.

So what's wrong with that? Japanese aren't allowed to be nationalistic while their neighbors in China and South Korea are drunk on nationalism? Neither of which have a Peace Constitution.

Your logic of saying Japan should be free to do it because other countries do it is rather a warped and dangerous way to run a country.

do you really need me to explain why?

Yes. Please and enlighten us which country is not nationalistic today. possibly with definition of nationalistic you have in mind.

Posted in: China’s 'Little Kyoto' shut down by government after complaints of Japanese culture invasion See in context

China is big with different culture, different ethnicity, different religion. They can't communicate with each other unless you speak standard Chinese. Chinese history is the bloody war history except all those wars were among different ethnic people within the continent until 20c, where, for the 1st time ever, another different ethnic people under influence, YES, of Chinese culture, especially Tang Dynasty, called Japanese across the ocean came and defeated then-ruling dynasty and expanded it's territory. It was just simple as that. Chinese even kept killing each other even after 1945 to decide which ruler was to stay on the summit. If the Chinese believe Japan was Chinese culture successor, it's Anti-Japan indoctrination fundamentally contradicts. Japanese march was a part of and the last of bloody Chinese war history.

Posted in: Japan cosmetics maker to exit S Korea amid anti-Korean post protest See in context

Is that why the entire nation was using BB Cream for a number of years here, and still use a lot of Korean cosmetics, with half the youth adopting K-pop styles?

"Good for you. You don't need any raw and intermediate materials from Japan or to disguise them as 100% Korean product by inducing Japanese makers into South Korea to produce 100% Korean products."

Dude, WHAT are you talking about? Japan does not export raw materials, it is almost an entirely export nation, IMPORTING raw materials to make products. What's more, half the time Korean companies produce products that sell here through local branches Japanese think they are domestic, like Lotte products, simply renamed "Koala no machi" or something like that for domestic sales. Hell, even Line and Kakao Talk's parent company is Korean, with Line Corporation literally coming from root compare Hangame Japan, a South Korean company which opened branches here.

There seem to be so many different BB creams and you're referring to which one? Lol. one from Shiseido?

And what? Lotte? How old are you?Yeah. That is a good one. Probably as good as Kappa Ebisen in South Korea. Did you enjoy Marukame Udon or the one completely Pachimon version in Seoul?

For your note, (raw) materials in the light of South Korean industrial structure and major exporting goods do not mean natural resource but (subject) matters indispensable for production including parts which South Korea has been desperate to induce Japanese Cos like Morita Chemical or Daikin to move production within South Korea to produce there. 100% Korean-made campaign has been failing from the beginning. Get the facts right!

Japan is descended from Korea and China, so the Japanese always have either Chinese or Korean blood. Japan was literally attached to the Korean peninsula and China during the very prehistoric period. It is also undeniable that Baekje literally built ancient Japan.

So what? That doesn't entitle current China and Korea to tell Japan what to do.
