Posted in: 19 vending machines torched, robbed in Tokyo's Katsushika ward since Sept 15 See in context

I've always told my friends and family in the USA that vending machines are everywhere you go here in Japan, and they never seemed to get vandalized. I guess times are changing here in Japan.

Posted in: Japan moves to expand controversial foreign worker scheme See in context

One of the reasons things are moving so slow with contractions projects to rebuild the damage caused by the Tsunami back in 2011 is a lack of construction workers as well as a lack of funds.

Posted in: Women threaten sex boycott for any man who votes for Masuzoe See in context

Japan already has a declining birth rate, Now, no sex for any guy who votes for this old windbag "jiji". Don't worry Kaori Georges of what the world is going to think if he gets elected. We all know that Japan is run by career public servants, and that these old "Jiji" politicians who get elected don't mean a darn thing.

I hope Rodney tells his "all star" team to let the North Korean's win the game. If they don't, Kim Jong Un won't be Rodney's friend anymore.

Posted in: Japan to supply ammo to South Korean troops in South Sudan See in context

To chucky3176: The South Korean troops may be engineers and medics but believe this: They are military first, and have all gone through basic training which teaches combat tactics. If things get nasty they will defend themselves. As far as being under UN "protection", do you recall how much protection the UN gave during the Bosnian civil war.

The headline should have read something to the effect: "Asylum seeker dies in detention center because center staff refused to call a doctor". Lets put the blame where it belongs.

Posted in: Searchers look for bodies of 2,500 still missing since tsunami See in context

Its understandable that the families of the individuals who's bodies have not been found want closure. Those of you who complain about the cost to the taxpayer for searching wouldn't be singing this tune if it was your family member.

Posted in: New wiring defect found in ANA Dreamliner See in context

I agree with smithinjapan. Outsourcing can cause problems, especially with something as technical as an airplane. Way too many parts have to integrate for the whole thing to work. When these parts come from sources all over the world it is difficult to trace problems when they arise.

Its not in their nature for the Japanese government to ask for outside help. They would lose "face"

Posted in: Obama nominates Caroline Kennedy as ambassador to Japan See in context

Caroline will have career diplomats that will run the day to day affairs of the US Embassy. As far as her being the first women appointed to the position of US Ambassador to Japan; there has to be a first for everything.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong about this. As far as I know, if you are paying for a cable subscription, part of that fee is already going to NHK.

Posted in: Two Japanese youths arrested for placing exploding bag of dog poop in police box See in context

Those of you that said the police should have made the culprits clean up the mess should look at the time line. Incident occurred on May 6th. They weren't arrested until June 11. There punishment should be having to clean up the Koban everyday for the next six months.

I wonder how many of you posting comments have ever flown on the 787. I have. Let me tell you, it was a very comfortable flight and I was sitting in Economy. I hope the testing works out and ANA starts flying them again.

Posted in: Japanese travelers abroad lack street smarts See in context

The headline of this article doesn't quite fit what the author wrote in the contents. The Algerian hostage crisis, the ballon disaster in Egypt as well as the incident in Guam have nothing to do with the lack of "street smarts". Other than not being in those particular countries at the time, "street smarts" would have not prevented nothing what happen.
