thegodfather: "Japan is a law-abiding country with a low crime-rate. No serial killers here!!" "Well then, Google 'Japanese serial killer" and tell me what you come up with."
OK, this from Wikipedia:

Hiroaki Hidaka: killed four prostitutes in Hiroshima in 1996; executed 25 December 2006
Miyuki Ishikawa: murdered an estimated 103, but could have been up to 169 infants in the 1940s
Kiyotaka Katsuta: firefighter who shot and strangled at least eight people, some during robberies, between 1972 and 1982
Yoshio Kodaira: rapist thought to have killed 11 people in Japan and China as a soldier; executed on 5 October 1949
Genzo Kurita: killed six women and two children and engaged in rape and necrophilia; executed on 16 January 1959
Hiroshi Maeue: also known as "Suicide Website Murderer"; lured people from suicide clubs promising to kill himself with his victims
Futoshi Matsunaga and Junko Ogata: also known as "House of Horror"; tortured and killed at least seven people between 1996 and 1998, including Ogata's family
Tsutomu Miyazaki: also known as "The Otaku Murderer", "The Little Girl Murderer" and "Dracula"; killed four preschool-age girls and ate the hand of a victim; executed in 2008
Seisaku Nakamura: also known as the "Hamamatsu Deaf Killer", murdered at least nine people; executed in 1943
Akira Nishiguchi: killed five people and engaged in fraud; executed on 11 December 1970
Kiyoshi Ōkubo: also known as "Tanigawa Ivan"; raped and murdered eight young women over a period of 41 days in 1971
Yukio Yamaji: murdered his own mother in 2000, and then murdered a 27-year-old woman and her 19-year-old sister in 2005
When you challenge people to Google to prove YOUR point it is a good idea to do so yourself first. Just saying.

The government is directly responsible for ALL NATIONAL health centers. They can't afford to fix a SHOWER??? And yet Abe remains in power. What a national disgrace.

So the deal is: We agree to talk later because we can't agree to the most important points.
To Japan free trade = We will sell what we want and all we want in your market but we limit what and how much you sell in Japan.
Japan wants to sell all the autos they wish in Europe but refuse to budge on dairy and meat products. And I thought the Japanese we lactose intolerant and really do not like dairy products. After all that is what Blinkyhara and Taro Assho have been saying all this time.

Anna "I thinks he looks like young"
Yeah like Neil Young
Maria "The hostility shown towards her back in the 60s and 70s was undoubtedly largely down to bigotry, and probably connected to feelings about Japan being the enemy in WW2. It has carried forward to the present day for absolutely no good reason."
No it is very doubtable that the hate was due to Japan in any way. It is based solely on her golddigging, no talent, hateful personality. There are many many stories from the 60s to today about the horrible way she treated staff of Apple Records and personal staff. She has earned 100% of the hate.
Toasted Heretic "But I do feel there is a misogynist streak in detractors of any female artist/actor/etc. Some men don't like it when a sister is intelligent, strong and has something to say."
Ha ha ha, oh sorry you are serious. Whet of any intelligence has this coat tail grabbing, golddigging hag EVER said that was intelligent or added on iota to ANY itelligent discussion? Stregth? You mean marrying a famous man, breaking up band, and causing even today strong feelings against her by the surviving tweo members? If that is strength she needs more humility.

Agreed on all your posts M3M3M3. These are not asylum seekers nor refugees they are criminals who over stayed visas, they stayed knowing they violated the law.

Posted in: Do you think we will soon have mainly cashless societies, with people storing their payment credentials on “digital wallets” and shopping via mobile devices? What do you still use cash for? See in context
Banks are pushing cashless society. That way they can charge negative interest as a "maintenance fee". Gov'ts want it because they can save on minting and printing currency which will make the private central banksters happy. When an "error" happens and your money is gone from your account: What account? We have no record you had an account.

Technology has been advancing and people have been warned for the last 30 years and more that traditional manufacturing and unskilled jobs were going to disappear. Don't blame technology because most people were too lazy/stupid to NOT get into the tech and engineering jobs they were told again and again were going to be needed.
Don't complain just go get another round of McCrap, watch another mindless TV show, or read another manga and leave the advance of humanity to those who actually listened. Your world has changed and most of you will be unemployed with no hope of re-employment. Enjoy.

The Japanese have impeccable manners 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They never sit while an elderly, pregnant woman, or disabled person needs a seat. Japanese kids never sit in front of doors playing games on their phones while people need to get off/on. They never wear their backpacks while standing. Japanese ladies never put on their makeup and get it on the people sitting next to them. Japanese old men never take off their shoes and socks to pick their feet. Japanese are the kindest, most considerate, and most evolved species of humans EVER and ANYWHERE.
Sacrasm off now.

Some Chinese tourists braved the rain here in Miyzaki. My family and I chatted with them and we all ended up going to a family restaurant. We helped them with Japanese translation when needed for the train and waitstaff. The adults and kids spoke English so we could all enjoy new friendships after enjoying the blossoms in the rain at Kokumen Kouen. Funny thing, only about 6 natives around the park, including my wife. Guess the natives don't see their beauty unless it is convenient with warm and dry weather.

"These politicians, who fancy themselves modern day samurai and want a return to "beautiful Japan" sure would make the samurai roll over in their graves, so to speak."
Shinzokun is a samurai. He bought his plastic sword,armor, and rocking horse at ToysR'Us.
