I can take or leave Okinawa. I did visit once but tend to go to Vietnam, Thailand etc etc for my resort holidays as I find them much more enjoyable and better value.

If muscular strength peaks at 20 then a lot of 20 year old guys I see around will need scooping up off the floor at 40.

All part of the scam. Also keep an eye on how the food products you buy shrink in size further with a rounded up price increase.

Posted in: Tokyo to ban parents from physically punishing children See in context

You can ban actions all you like but it doesn't really stop people doing it. As others have stated, more emphasis should be given to the powers that authorities have in following cases up before they get too bad.

The guy is sick in the head if he feels he needs to keep $131bn for himself. I do not begrudge anyone their wealth at all, especially if they made it all themselves but I find it hard to respect him because he shares such a small % of his wealth and, from what i hear, treats his staff like cr@p.

I see one of my neighbours kids leave home the same time as me, 0730 but he doesn't get home until 2200, then still has homework to do. He's 9!

Saw this news on tv this morning.........blaming Chinese tourists of course.

5 of the 209 injured were foreign tourists, what were they saying about Chinese?

A big problem is that many parents just don't answer the door to the child welfare services when they do actually call round and they are powerless to do anything about it.

Adame’s case has been making news around the world, as he now approaches nine months in jail awaiting trial.

This story was broken by one staff writer in the US. To date, it has not been covered by Japanese language media. Why is that?

Because a Japanese person, if stupid enough to resist arrest and assault a police officer, would be treated in exactly the same way.

That's not really surprising considering its the most populated area in the country. It ain't too bad on a global scale though.

Commuting daily by train is horrible in Tokyo, I was pretty stressed out a few years ago and thought it was down to my job but started cycling to work daily and the stress totally disappeared. I also don't find the air to be noticeably polluted for such a huge city. Anyway, this report is good news for my house value which has already risen.

A male resident of Hirose's apartment building said that one evening last November he saw a young woman weeping, and saying that she could not get back to Tokyo because she had no money.

I hope he helped her out that time.

Posted in: Ireland says UK demand for Brexit deal change is "wishful thinking" See in context

Political, economic and social suicide being committed by the hapless politicians and daft proportion of my fatherland, which is pretty sad to see from afar. I don't want my friends and family to suffer from it.

Many many people in the UK live hand to mouth each month from their pay cheque, with zero savings accrued, so an economic downturn will be felt very hard indeed.

I also feel bad for Ireland constantly being done over by the stupid Tories, Ireland should be reunited.

I guess putting 'craft' in front of the product seems to make it sell for around a 30% higher price!

Posted in: Moooove over, wagyu: British beef and lamb are back in Japan See in context

MaddenToday  02:50 pm JST

All I care about the price, if the British stuff is more expensive than the competition then I can't imagine it making much impact.

I think it depends on where it will be sold and what cuts. People pay crazy money for good beef in this country but each time I go back to England the beef I eat (and most people prefer) is the much leaner cuts than the expensive cuts here.

I much prefer to eat lean beef and i'm hoping some decent lamb chops will make it to the supermarkets, the ones I usually see here are teeeeeny.

Well obviously he made a crappy situation much worse didn't he. Feel sorry for him being locked up for that time but he did resist arrest after all, even when he knew they actually were proper police! (if you believe the fake police story)

At least empty shops seem to get re-let fairly quickly here, at least in my neighbourhood anyway. The only thing is you can almost bet your last $ it will be a hair salon, masseuse, or convenience store opening. ZzZzz
