Posted in: Transport ministry employee arrested for filming up girl’s skirt on train See in context

I just scrolled through some of my old comments, and it seems I'd commented on an article back in October last year about another minister who was caught doing the same thing. Guess where he was from? Ministry of transport, land and infrastructure. Those idiots must be exchanging tips and tricks over line messages on how do this.

Posted in: With legal team shake-up, Ghosn seeks punchier defense See in context

He declined to agree with foreign criticism of Ghosn's detention conditions or the Japanese legal system that allows suspects to be held almost indefinitely, appearing to side with the authorities against his own client.

What a joke that lawyer is. I could tell by his appearance that he didn't look much like a fighter but more like a whimp. He probably already pocketed his chakushukin or "starters fee" for this case, so he doesn't care if he gets replaced now. I've also had this experience before with people who you expected to suppport you but they seem to end up supporting the opposite side. That's Japan for ya.

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

I was going to comment on the lack of punitive clauses, but other posters beat me to it. Not surprised in the least. Japan is such a backwards country. First world country run by a third world government.

Reading the title alone, one could already guess it would be related to someone who is likely of mid-age and unemployed. I was spot on. Miserable, useless leech.

Not a word uttered about ghosn and his situation. If this had been a dispute with an american citizen i'm willing to bet trump would be raging to japan about this with serious consequences.

I would looove to see someone from renault take over from ghosn and the alliance accepted through pressure from the french government. That means it's back to square one for those xenophobic executives like saikawa and co. Oh boy would i love to see his face when that happens.

But they're not going to get a reform of the judicial system, thinking there might just be something not right with holding people in custody for this long? Rediculous.

But wait, abe URGED the companies to raise salaries. He said the economy was doing great.

This article is clearly not a true representation of reality.

Posted in: Japan Inc's pay disclosure in spotlight after Ghosn's arrest See in context

"I'm really afraid that this incident will discourage excellent talents globally who have a passion to come to Japan and be part of Japanese corporations and make Japan successful," Nakanishi, an automobile industry analyst, said.

Well, you should be very afraid indeed. I'd be discouraged too if I were a high ranking exec and I look at this whole mess with Nissan. I'd quite frankly turn my back to Japan and never look back. They don't deserve foreign talent. Let foreign talent go elsewhere where they're treated more humanely.

"I would like to request a wage hike that will further cement the upward momentum of the economy," Abe told business leaders at a meeting of the Japan Business Federation

Haha, like to request? Upward economy? You're such a comedian aren't you, little shinzo?

Posted in: Japan approves measures to help make life easier for foreign workers See in context


This should have been implemented at every city hall decades ago. My local city hall has an English speaker 3 days a week, but you still cannot get any information about city tax, garbage collection, infrastructure, etc. in any other language. This initiative is a step in the right direction, but Japan still has a long way to go before it can be considered 'foreigner friendly'. They still have to overcome cultural prejudices and mistreatment of foreigners, which may never happen. I've lived here for nearly twenty years and it hasn't changed at all in that time. The empty seat on the train is still the one next to the foreigner.

In what part of Japan do you live?

I've lived in Kansai in the past, and in revent years Kanagawa and Tokyo. I remember the information relating to garbage disposal to always have been available in English too. As for city tax, I'd just ask them in Japanese if I needed anything.

As for the empty seat on the train? I've personally never experienced it where I've personally lived so far. Morning commute in Tokyo? It won't take more than a few seconds until the seat next to me is occupied.

Posted in: Ghosn's continued detention keeps Japan's justice system under microscope See in context

Every time i read about this it makes me so freaking mad. If ghosn broke the law, he needs to be punished. But this prolonged detention is rediculous. And not a single japanese executive arrested. It's times like these when i harbor so much hatred and animosity towards japan and its many idiotic ways of doing anything. They deserve to be shamed and have everything bad happen tp their backwards little society.

Posted in: Japan's corporate image hit by falsification scandals: poll See in context

Just 5 percent said they planned to take steps in reaction to the scandal, while 16 percent said they would wait and see. The rest said they didn't plan to take any steps.

Sums up the state of this entire apathetic country. 79% is huge. As for the 16%, wait and see what? Until another scandal hits?

Posted in: Schoolgirl caught stealing dozens of educational books in one night See in context

If she has no money for these books, the price of college textbooks will blow her mind if she can afford to go in the first place.

From my personal experience attending a Japanese uni for four years, there weren't that many text books we had to buy. I can only remember buying about half a dozen of them. Most of the time, you'll get hand outs from the lecturer that cover everything. They will sometimes recommend books but those are optional.

Posted in: Fugitive apparently fled police station 30 minutes after seeing lawyer See in context

Sure the police are to blame, as well as their equipment not being up to date like it should. But i equally blame that total retard of a lawyer who should know better than to listen to a criminal and not inform the police they were done.

Posted in: Woman jailed for 2 years for destroying ex-husband's 54 violins See in context

This has taken four years before coming to court?

No, it was the court decision that came four years later. Having experience with Japanese courts myself, I can tell you that the back and forth yaritori between lawyers and the court is very time comsuming, and before a verdict is ever reached, there will be several court hearings where both parties plead their case. Documents need to be prepared, documents written, discussed, countered etc.

Posted in: Japan, EU sign massive trade deal to eliminate nearly all tariffs See in context

Abe praised the deal with the EU for helping his "Abenomics" policies, designed to wrest the economy out of stagnation despite a shrinking population and cautious spending. Japan's growth remains heavily dependent on exports.

This made me chuckle ever so slightly. So he needs the EU to help him with his utterly ineffective and delusional abenomics? That proves it wasn't ever a success to begin with if you can't do it on your own. But now he tries to use third parties to make himself look good. He's a true comedian he is.

Posted in: Man gropes woman, chases her for 100 meters to forcibly kiss her See in context

Jenna, I'm very sorry to hear that. This is so ironic given that the movie "soredemo boku ha yatte nai" would suggest the exact opposite about guys getting caught.

Also, you mention the police said there was no camera footage. Was there no camera in the train carriage?

Posted in: ‘Jisa Biz’ campaign to ease overcrowding on Tokyo trains starts Monday See in context

For the rush hours they should introduce stranding only trains with more doors.

Then what about the elderly, pregnant women, or people with back problems who can't stand for that long but who also need to take the morning train? Ever thought about that?

Posted in: Support for Abe cabinet at 45%, up for 2nd month: poll See in context

What a wonderful way to start the week...not. This just keeps repeating itself again and again it's depressing.

I'll never forget when I was with my ex Japanese gf a few years ago and I criticized abenomics, she told me that he was doing all he could to make the economy better, but that we would need 10 years before seeing results so we needed to be patient. This is likely what many others in Japan delude themselves into believing which is why this fool is still in office.
