Posted in: Beaujolais time See in context

Well, some Beaujolais are actually good, and some are aging well, but only some of them, and in Japan they are actually hard to find.

The vast majority of the exported Beaujolais nouveau is undrinkable, may it be drunk the same year or not.

What a sickening jerk ... You can't control yourself? You're so lame and pathetic.

It's so head-blowing how so many Japanese guys are attracted to young girls...

On a side note, what was an 11-year-old girl doing outside at 8:50pm?

What are her parents doing?

Posted in: 50% of Japanese women think work hampers married life: survey See in context

The diversity agenda, in which getting women into the workforce is one aim, is a massive scam by corporations wrapped up in a cuddly cover of compassion: https://youtu.be/c3FSLzjmHX8

And what if a woman does not want to be a housewife, be a financial supporter of the family too, can't she ask the husband to help at home a little bit more? A kid is not born to only the mother, how much time we have to say, it takes two people to make a child, and a village to raise them...

If you are Married, then, and if you are really lucky, your Husband will help out too as much as he can , though he may earn more than you, and therefore keeping his Job would seem to be a priority... which therefore places more burden upon you.

Why people always make sound it like it's either only take care of his job or taking care of the child? What about trying to change the working hours to be more at home and help a little bit more? I don't see why women can do work and childrearing at the same time and not the men.

Not much chance of it happening at that age anyway though? Seems more performative than anything else.

Obviously you don't know much about fertility, you should try to check the informations before speaking about it. There are postmenopausal women before reaching 30 years old, there are women who give birth after 40, I gave birth to my daughter at 36 years old and there was no issue whatsoever. Recently two close friends gave birth at 40 and both babies and mums were perfectly fine.

Posted in: Japanese energy firms brace for possible supply cut from Russia See in context

@Hiro We could have been like India and other countries. Stay neutral. But no, we had to go along with the west. Over a hundred countries are staying out of this whole thing but our government has to be the bigger man. In the end is our little guys here that suffer from these decisions. Getting ready for ridiculous fuel and energy prices.

Excuse me but you sound incredibly selfish... What if Russia was attacking Japan? Wouldn't you be happy that other countries helps you against them? Poutine is a selfish monster who is killing innocent people, just for his own greediness and self-esteem. As much as possible, he must not receive any money that could help him to ruin other countries.

I am surprised that nobody noticed that the man on the poster is the famous actor Yutaka Matsushige.

I won't comment on the effectiveness/cleverness of the poster but I think it's interesting that they choose this guy, out of anybody else, to be displayed here.

I guess you mustn't have children to say something like this...

Our kindergarten is close this week due to coronavirus, my daughter is 1 year and 3 months old. I am a freelance, so I usually work from home. But with my daughter around, it is simply impossible to work as she is not old enough to play alone, and it would be dangerous to let her alone. I also need to prepare her meals (that she would have taken at the kindergarten otherwise), and get her out to play.

So this just became a lost week for me, trying to catch up as much as possible during nap and after 6:30pm when she's sleeping.

So yes, having kindergarten close is a huge headache, being a working at home person or not.

Posted in: Historic Asakusa shopping street in danger as Taito Ward calls for shop evictions See in context

The article is misleading in my opinion, highlighting only the "this is an historic/traditional asset of Asakusa" side of the story. While I agree that these shops are a part of Asakusa "charm", I don’t think it is normal that they don’t pay a rent. They are taking advantage having been here "illegally" from decades, making huge benefits while selling cheap stuff for most of them, while the other shops in the same area pay high rental fees.

I don’t think they should disappear, but it would be fair that they pay a rent like anyone else.
