Unbelivable, each time I leave Tokyo at Narita they check my luggage and once even found a second lighter I forgot to remove. How can this happen?

OMG, what an idiot. But as everywhere, there is on bully with tatoos and a lot of other people also get the blame too. But I heard they need strong men to clean up in the tohoku plant.

GoalsO - how old was the child? Did it recognize that this could have been a yaks sign?? Or was this just the, for me not easy to understand, japanese kind of humour ??

And I thought Ishihara was the leading guy in the luncatic departement, but the guy from Osaka beats him.

Admirable??? Is this just a rhetorical question? Cause not. But this happens and belive me, I just had to check our newspapers just for one week not only in Japan. And I had to remind you that I said, that the support for mothers with small children is not as good as in my country.

My sisters and brothers were brought up at a farm in Austria and belive me, there was such a lot of work and we were so wild, that our parents were not always able to look after us. When I now think of all the things we did, taking also the small ones with us, I wonder why nothing really bad happenend.

Some of the poster must be really pitiful persons, cause they see only bad things in this country and had to stay there for whatever reasons. Perhaps they dont look around so much too, cause things like that happen everywhere p.e. here in Austria and in Germany, even when we have here a much better support for mums and spec. single mums than in Japan. One of the things I really dislike is talking clever like p.e. you should not let your child alone for one second - this is sometimes simply not possible like going to the phone, toilet, doing your houshold etc. you cant always see what happens.

Sure, there are terrible parents but not everyone who`s losing a child like that is simply bad.

Would someone of you say things like that face to face to the reg. person or are some simply unpolite cause they can hide behind their nickname?

Ah Sakurala, at least one you have not forgotten how it was to be young or was not boring then. Not all of this guys are bad and not of all the stabbers etc. in Japan are in a gang, same of same are frustated "normal" people. Don`t judge some for all.

Met some, cause my daughter wrote her thesis about "outsiders" in Japan, they were not dangerous at all, but quite polite. Young folks! Normal thing to be "different" etc. for some time. Always adjusted and well behaving kids are a little bit creepy for me too!

Perhaps one of the reasons is that this guys offer "simple solutions" to difficult questions and one can put the blame on somebody else. But Tokyo still functions in a way as well as perhaps Italy, even during horny old Berlussconi`s regime.

I never understood why this old (but thats not the point) crazy guy was elected again and again. But what could I say, here in Austria someone like Jörg Haider (passed away) or Strache (kind of right wings with a potential of comedians, when you have a sarcastic humour) were elected too. And the U.S.A., just remembering some of the remarks during the last weeks and I thought Sarah Palin couldnt be topped.

Perhaps @that korean guy ment everything that will happen after Fukushima (radiation, cancer etc. etc.).I

Wow! I once was at a isakaya and at a table near us were 3 older ladies (housewife style), drunk and really rude to the waiter. I saw this in Europe but never before in Japan, times are changing. My japanese friends were puzzled too.

att. It`s me: When I was young, though /´m 56 its a long time ago, history lessons during school were more "japanese" we stopped at World war 1. It was different when my daugther went to school, they learned a lot about this time, read Anna Frank etc. But cause I was an rebellous teenager and had jewish friends, I teached myself, saw a lot of history films, read a lot of books and talked to people. And then the discussions started with family and people from my village, which was not always nice. And I agree there is no black and white, even I thought that when I was very young.

Forced annexation, yes, but such a lot of people were more than happy about it. OK, you can argue that the economy etc. were terrible during this days etc. We were not, as sometimes claimed, only the poor little Austrians, I`m too realistic.

Same as Germany and Austria, they lost but claimed nothing, which is good from my point of view. Anyway they started the whole thing, even reasons can be found in history. Belive me I love Japan though my passed away daughter loved it and lifed there. I have a lot of friends there but this doesn`t make me blind for faults (same for my country).

It`s me - Im Austrian. Always being very interested in this part of history, had familiy members in the "party". Long discussions when I was young and full of hope etc. History defines us, but we can try to see different points and be always interested. But I´m realistic now, being older and heard and seen a lot.

I`m horrified about some of the remarks - p.e. Iachatamber and Issa 1. Remembers me a lot of some old and now unfortunately young people in Austria and Germany, talking about our "own Nazi regime". Or perhaps they have no empathy. That things like that happened in a lot of other countries is no excuse. Thanks to Yasukini

Posted in: Tourism flatlines as visitors avoid Japan See in context

I always liked Japan and never had "bad" expierences. Ok - the rooms in hotels I`m willing to afford are small, but indcredible clean and you get free yukata, shoes etc. etc. - which is not common and belive me I know my share of "budget hotels" in p.e. Europe. The people always tried to help us, OK - we had the big advantage that our daughter spoke fluent Japanense. But even when we went out alone they were nice.

The FOOD is (and thats what also makes my sad, cause of Cesium etc.) the best I ever had and Im a good cook myself and very interested in all food- and restaurant things. And its also OK and healthy in cheap restaurants and combinis. But perhaps Ive another kind of taste cause I`m not American.

Really expensive are the train and underground fares and a little bit complicated with all the different companies.

Posted in: Fukushima to get power theme park for children See in context

Darren, I will be my 4th visit in Tokyo and I always loved it. One of my daughters and my fav places is Inokashira (hers was also Shibuya). A lot of her friends visited Vienna during the last months also to see Lilith`s grave and despite the language problems it was very nice. I hope everything will be OK for all of you.

Thanks for your nice words. My daughter would be happy. In a lot of ways she was more japanese than austrian, according to her friends. But she was very aware of all the "bad" things in Japan. In November we will go to Tokyo to visit her favorite places, visit her friends and leave a little bit of her there. She had a very rare cancer - Angiosarcoma - science found no real reason until now, but something like Fukushima could be one of the triggers. I wish all our friends and other people over there the best !!!

Attached a part of my daughters blog from April 7th, she loved Japan and stayed there for 2 years and many visits. She died on May 12th this year and Fukushima broke a piece of her heart:

Disregarding that this is mainly a fashion blog some of the reactions to the nuclear melt down makes we want to make a statement, or more precise, make me want to rant. That my Japanese friends who don´t get well informed by the Japanese media and often have no possibility to get out of Tokyo and the surrounding areas I can accept. I let them all know that they would be always welcome here with me if the need to... BUT reading about a few foreign girls who question the dangers of the meltdown make me not only angry, they disgust me. Saying it may cause cancer but this and that can also cause cancer so whatever shows only pure ignorance and dumbness. Being a person who is battling with cancer for years, having over 30 operations, being tormented by incredible pain and sadness (also for my dear ones) this attitude feels like a slap in the face. My cancer very well was maybe triggered by Chernobyl. I couldn't flee from that as a baby but as an adult I would have run as far as I could knowing what cancer can mean.

Apart of that, everyone in Japan (including my ex-boyfriends) are telling me how glad they are that I am at a safe place because they would worry about me. That is what true care and love look likes: Wanting someone you like safe rather than close

Posted in: Japanese TV show invokes Hitler as motivator See in context

My daughter told me once, that she was introduced as "this is Lilith, shes from Austria, where Hitler was born". For us in Austria or Germany this is a very political uncorrect style, cause we are brought up during school etc. with all the history lessons about second worldwar and Hitler etc. But for Japanese its seemed to be different and they didn`t learn a lot about it in school.
