"While Trump and Kim search each other’s eyes and words for signs of trust or deceit . . "

I guess the reporters are mind readers.

Posted in: AKB48, 'Love Live!' group to perform live in Los Angeles this summer See in context

Who in the U.S. (excluding Japanese fans living in the U.S.) would really want to waste their money on seeing them when their musical talent and performance are so borderline amateurish?

Posted in: Agreement reached on casino bill; free entry for foreign visitors See in context

In Singapore, the Integrated Resorts are free to enter, shop, dine, walk around and relax. Only the casinos, themselves, require ID at the entrance, free to foreigners but a fee for Singapore residents to enter. I could go in as I had my passport but Singaporean friends didn't go in as they didn't want to pay the high fees.

It would have been better to have a variety of what other companies are doing in this article as it seems as if this is a PR job for Dai-ichi Life Insurance Co. in recruiting more female workers.

Add this to the South Korean women who tried to smuggle gold in their rectums earlier this year but were caught at the airport. What's with all this gold smuggling into Japan?

What a leech! Yes, too late to apply for a job now as his new abode will be in prison. His mom should have kicked him out a long time ago before the situation came to a sad end.

Wouldn't the scanning machine determine if the items were metal tools or chocolate tools, without having to open the box?

Posted in: Warning level raised on another Japanese volcano a week after fatal eruption See in context

Maybe the word "lifted" should have been replaced with "raised" as it sounded like the government ended the warning rather than raising it.

Posted in: The Joy of Sake festival returns to Tokyo See in context

I prefer the small producers in the countrysides. My favorite is Iyo Kagiya (伊予賀儀屋) from Ehime Prefecture. Its nigori sparkling product is outstanding.

Posted in: Strong quake shakes northern Japan; no tsunami risk See in context

The problem with having the Olympics in Hokkaido is the lack of infrastructure to handle the large number of traffic by air (airport capacity and lack of hotel rooms), the logistics to move things from mainland Japan to Hokkaido, facilities, etc.

It's good PR for ANA and good news in the airline business where nothing but negative news is aired.

Posted in: No. of foreign visitors to Japan in July hits new monthly record See in context

shinsaku.ai: ”I'm not sure about the "vice versa" part. I tried to look for data on Japanese outbound tourists inbound to China. It doesn't seem like China is anywhere near the top of Japanese' list when travelling abroad nowadays."

For your info, number of Japanese visiting China in 2016 reached 2,587,400, +3.6% while that to S. Korea was 2,297,893, +25.4; Taiwan, 1,896,456, +16.4%. Growth for China is small but by no means generating small numbers.

Posted in: Why is Japanese customer service so amazing? Because in Japan it’s one strike and you’re out See in context

One of the best service I've had in my travels abroad is in Thailand where it is equally as good as that in Japan. They have a genuine smile and hospitable way. Japan's service is wonderful but sometimes by the book. If you go to high-end Japanese inns, it is there that you will find the epitome of true Japanese hospitality and service in providing the best service for you.

For those who believe that Tsukiji is for sushi restaurants, they are misinformed. Many izakaya, other restaurants and ordinary supermarkets rely on Tsukiji for their supply of seafood for the everyday person.

Posted in: Food truck business may be low risk, but hardly high return See in context

A friend once operated an ice cream truck but kept getting chased away by yakuza because he refused to pay them a fee to park which they claimed they controlled. He lasted six months because it was difficult to find a place to park and do business, unless it was far from foot traffic.
