The anti-Japan faces in that crowd look like they could be Japanese.

Familiarity breeds contempt.

I do feel like i'm dicing with death each time I step out onto a crossing here that's for sure.

Look overseas for how to develop nice waterfront areas please, Odaiba and the new areas built around the bay are just horrible.

I was at Onjuku with the family over the weekend. Very big swell there, particularly on Sunday when the lifeguards only let surfers in the water.

Joint custody laws are great and all but it depends how they are enforced. There are many problems with this in the UK, my sisters husband is denied access to his 3 young children by his ex, even though he has legal access. The courts just don't prioritise it, so she's been getting away with it for years.

Not surprising at all, you'll see huge rats scurrying around Neighbourhoods but in Shibuya and Shinjuku I see loads.

Posted in: Trump dismisses trade war fears; China warns of market chaos See in context

Trump is building a house of cards and he wants it to be the tallest, most impressive house of cards in the world. We all know how sturdy a house of cards really is.

Good luck with that Moon. NK cannot be trusted as previous SK leaders have already discovered and Trump is beginning to.

Posted in: Fuji TV apologizes for wrong caption calling deceased Kyoto Animation director ‘idiot’ See in context

I see what you're saying Strangerland but there is an option to turn on subtitles. The TV companies aren't doing it for the foreigners are they, I just wonder why so many shows do it, along with the box in the corner of a guest watching....

Why don't they just keep mascot performances INSIDE when it's stupidly hot outside?

Why the hell do all these shows constantly show subtitles of whatever people are saying anyway? It's stupid and this just shows it.

It's a disgraceful state of affairs and what is equally disgraceful is certain posters trying to reason like it's normal or something.

Japan must realise that the era of playing sweet little victim is coming to an end.

Yeah that title well and truly belongs to the cry babies in Seoul now.

Posted in: Is it OK for a man to take his girlfriend to restaurants like Yoshinoya on a date? See in context

Seeing as it's way down the list of places I'd take myself, I'd hardly put a date through it.

Posted in: S Korean cities suspend exchange programs with Japan See in context

This is really sad and stupidly childish by SK. I have nothing against South Koreans per- se, yet all the stuff they are doing recently is starting to make me dislike SK as a country. These students are the future hope for a cordial bi-lateral relationship and the current childish bickering is nothing to do with them. I would imagine the students could probably come up with far less childish solutions than the politicians!

Just a thought but now might be a good time to introduce an eel conservation day, rather than just an eel consumption day.

Posted in: Angst in suburbia: Tokyo's once-gracious Setagaya Ward faces increasingly tarnished image See in context

Poor planning decisions are ruining neighbourhoods all over Tokyo. I don't know how planners can justify granting permission for an apartment block housing around 60 people built on the site of a family home down a quiet street, that housed 4 people. It's happening all over the place and there's only so much neighbourhoods and their infrastructure can take.

I love living in Tokyo, it's great fun but my plan is to live right by the ocean when I retire.

It's so easy to imagine how people react in that situation but the reality is clearly very different. All we can do is hope that we never have to find out how we'd react

@Strangerland: whatever you like to think. I improved my critical skills since I started to read newspapers from all over the world, and of every political orientation. Later I put the pieces together. At the moment, I don't see why Russia needed to annoy South Korean left winger Moon. I need more "pieces". ;)

The US and South Korea are conducting their joint military drills next month. Russia, China and North Korea really don't like that going on in 'their' back yard.

What is wrong with Korea? Move on with your lives, it's just so sad to see so many other people (who weren't even alive then) intent on keeping the hate going. Sad, sad people!
