Posted in: Price of premium melons plunges See in context

From 5,000,000 JPY down to 120,000 JPY is a perfect example of how super inflated this nation is.

I believe Korea produces the same melon and it is currently being sold in Japan for 3,800 JPY.

Hard to believe but true. Can't even tell the difference by looking, the Korean melon tastes very good.

"" the pain was already there, and it was because the other person was with you that you were able to not feel it.""

Only if or when you are not happy living, that you have this constant pain. Yes having a partner helps you heal, but you should NOT be in pain when not having one.

"“If this reselling continues, the ministry will have to take action,” he said.""

As always TOOOO Late Sir.

Responsible businesses have always done it.

It should be the store responsibility to limit the purchases or control over buying so all customers can have access to their stock.

By limiting the number of same item purchase per person whenever shortages or over buying accrue.

These limitations are the norm in times of crises and should have been implemented on Masks, Sanitizers, Toilet papers, and so on.

Posted in: Japan's child population falls for 39th straight year to record low See in context

Child support is yet another problem in Japan, as it is a Non Tax Deductible Expense,

and so many parents are left to care for the children alone, with no laws to enforce child support payments.

Posted in: Graffiti targeting Wuhan residents over virus found at Yasukuni shrine See in context

The Chinese communist party and it's leadership are to blame, The Chinese people are just as victimized as the rest of the world.

The most potent punishment is to sue the communist party for the 6.5 Trillion USD the world has lost due to this pandemic as it is already happening.

Posted in: Coronavirus-linked bankruptcies rise sharply in Japan See in context

""Private banks and regional financial institutions have also started emergency loan services at zero interest rates and without securities to companies worried about cash flow.""

Zero Interest loans are great, but why take out a loan while you are SINKING, it's like extending a noose for the log and painful drop.

Don't take it out the people!, they paid a heavy price as well. It's their oppressive government that LIED about the severity of the spread of the virus, and it's infectious nature for the first month that led to the pandemic.

Posted in: Tokyo to pay more to businesses that remain closed until May 31 See in context

500,000 JPY is not enough for a single business owner, but it is a help greatly appreciated.

Many with their staff are scrapping by and following the government request and I underline request, but the financial damages and sacrifices must be better rewarded, like tax cuts, and aid when the day after arrives.

Support Your Local Businesses People.

""parasite singles." & hikikomori,""

Both need a kick in the butt, the problem is the parents themselves and NOT the children, as many parents choose to keep at least one child at home for many personal and selfish reasons.

Posted in: Abe extends virus state of emergency until May 31 See in context

""The government has also said it is increasing testing capacity but continues to face criticism for the relatively low numbers of tests being carried out, in part because of stringent criteria.""

Does anyone know what's the scoop here?? I have't been able to get comprehend this so far!? Why isn't Japan testing the general public so it can detect and isolate the infected individuals?

No need for a hospital trip, a drive thru or Organized and scheduled testing of all citizens can and is being done in S Korea, Germany, France, USA, and others.

What's the hold up here?
