Posted in: Kawasaki takes steps to lower language barrier for foreign kids in school See in context

Why did they call Kawasaki a city bordering Tokyo, when it's much closer to Yokohama?

Like chipstar said. I used to live in Miyamae ku in Kawasaki, which was closer to Shibuya by train than it was to downtown Kawasaki.

Absolutely scandalous how this dirty little two faced back stabber isn't also being thrown into custody. UNBELIEVABLE! He deserves to have his entire life wrecked just like they did Ghosn.

I don't know if it's just me, but i have the impression that in japan, cars are more likely to swirve around you, or in the worst case scenario, simply hit you if you're in their way. This is in stark contrast to back home in Europe where drivers have the tendency to stop more often.

“I found her dead, and I didn’t know what to do to take care of it, so I left her there.”

same cr#p you hear from all the other recluses. It sounds just as rehearsed as people saying they were drunk and don't remember anything. Let the loser suffer in prison.

Please forgive me if this is a silly question, but why aren't the olympics being organized indoors? That would resolve all this mumbo jumbo instantly.

Posted in: TEPCO toughens stance toward nuclear disaster damages settlement See in context

The point of this comment is that we had to pay our own legal costs even though we didn't bring the court case in the first place.

Having been trough some legal battles in Japan myself, I can share some insight into this. The reason why you need to cover your own legal costs here is because there is no obligation to use a lawyer in Japan. You are free to defend yourself in a Japanese court of law, if you have the time and resources to do so.

Posted in: Man arrested over illegal 'One Piece' manga-viewing website See in context

2017? Can you be arrested for crimes that predates when the law goes into affect? This is ridiculous.

It's not ridiculous, it's called a retroactive law and isn't that uncommon.

Posted in: Anime-style security guard will be protecting home and offices in Japan See in context

I think it's a cool idea, and looks fancy too. But i've always been baffled that there is so much security in Japan for a country that is so safe and mostly honest already. I could see this as a necessity abroad, but not so much here.

How did this guy know which classroom is the one of the prince, much less how did he know which desk ws teh desk of the prince? Big data leak!

According to a past article, the names of the students are written on their desks or something.

Selfish little brat he is.

And I wonder where he was in such a hurry to go despite being unemployed. I bet it wasn't a job interview.

Ha, a women only gym is so discriminatory. Why can't men and women coexist in peace and harmony?

Posted in: Court extends Ghosn's detention until April 22 See in context

Yes, how very predictable.

But they can only extend his detention up to two times per allegation, right? That means they only have one more extension left after this one and then they'll have to let him go unless they find new allegations, which surely they've exhausted by now?

This was actually pretty darn funny. At least some Japanese people have a sense of humor and the balls to make a video out of it, and it's of course the kansaijin. Good on them.

I honestly have no words left for this......

Why did he have to announce it on twitter though? That's his biggest mistake. That was so unnecessary. He could have made a video, or held an unanounced press conference or something.

Posted in: In election year, weakening economy may force Abe's hand See in context

Time to face the music, eh abe?

All this time you were hoping the economy would mold itself to your agenda, and you kept falsely claiming - on a number of topics - that everything was under control and the economy was at an upward trend. None of your many stimulus plans or vows or urges for change really did much did they now.

But I bet you're going to hold a press conference really soon where you will deludingly proclaim once again that Japan is a growing, robust economy and that we all need to put our trust in you.

I wonder how much of a normal student life she was able to have in Japan. I'm sure they have protocalls for when she went to the UK, but they couldn't have been monitoring non-stop over there. Hopefully she was able to mingle with the local crowd and have a good time.

Posted in: Foreign technical trainees accused of shoplifting ¥12.58 million worth of drugstore goods in Japan See in context

I see people shoplifting in Tokyo every day; both Japanese and non-Japanese. Seriously. I am not joking. A few examples 1) an old grandma-type comes into my local supermarket with a grocery bag from that market. Grabs a basket and loads it up with food. Then goes to the bagging counter to bag her un-purchased items and then splits out the door. 2) A guy walks into Hard Off. Grabs a thin computer monitor off the shelf and tucks it under his arm as best he can, and then strolls out the door while the staff are helping real customers. 3) Three people enter a clothing shop in mid-Winter wearing no jackets (they are westerners that do not look poor). They each choose a jacket, put them on, and out the door they go.

Ok, so why didn't you do something about it every time you noticed? Like, block them from leaving, notify the staff, or record them?

Posted in: Gov't warns organizations against firing pregnant foreign trainees See in context

So, the govt warns companies not to fire pregnant employees, and it also urges companies to raise wages. However, we forces its citizens to enter into a contract with its public broadcasting network...

Shows you exactly where the priorities lie within this corrupt govt.

Posted in: Court turns down Ghosn's request to attend Nissan board meeting on Tuesday See in context

Wonderful!! The actual allegations aside, I have mad respect for Ghosn for being so strong throughout all this where others would have been lost in desperation. Time for Japan and those double standard backstabbers to get a good dosis of Western payback.

They will CONSIDER taking measures. Hilarious! But I expected nothing less from these irresponsible buffoons. Japan in a nutshell. Stark contrast with what someone recently had to go through for far less.

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.

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.

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.
