Posted in: Does Japan’s five-yen coin need a redesign? See in context

Please, no. I support retiring one yen coins, just as the US should retire pennies, but the 5-yen coin is so iconic, and it costs money to redesign as well. And a romaji 5 even would ruin the aesthetic.

This irks me almost as much as Japan bending to the will of ignorant sjws about the 万字 on Japanese maps. If you can't take the time to learn which coin is which, or read some history to realize the manji isn't offensive and is part of a culture that's different to your own, you should just stay home.

Should have changed the age to 37 or the job title to something like junior inspector. A young babbie isn't gonna be head of anything - no wonder she saw through his plan.

And they're not too much more expensive than trash like united to boot. I stay with Star Alliance primarily for ANA.

Posted in: Couple arrested for setting up groper on train in Osaka See in context

Where are all the comments from those who claim false accusations never occur and all those who are accused of groping are guilty no matter what? Strangely absent.

Remember the golden rule of both hands high in the air, gentlemen. Better yet, just rack up that zangyo time and go to work between 5am and 10pm to avoid rush hour.

Pretty negative comments in here. She's still got a much more cush set up in life than any of us.

The aesthetic is a bit strange to me for a seafood eatery, but man raw oysters with some lemon on a hot summer day sounds awesome.

Posted in: Abe's support slumps amid doubts about school scandal See in context

although I don't particularly support Mr. Abe, I think it is better to have a solid term for the Prime Minister. Many of you recall the revolving door where every croney gets to be prime minister for a few months in pre-Abe years.

Exactly. Like him or not, things are at least much more stable than when I first moved to Japan, and stability is more important than most people realize.

Posted in: Hotel in Osaka has discounts for female bar customers who wear high heels See in context

All of you whining about 'sexism', keep in mind there's no requirement to wear heels, it's only an extra incentive to do so - no one is being barred entry for wearing flats, so calm your sjw nerves. Maybe you could argue it's sexist against men, but you're the types who claim one can't be sexist toward men so I know this isn't the case.

Or maybe because men happily pay for it.

Two sides of the same coin. Either way, women gladly take money in exchange for flaunting their bodies, and who wouldn't since it's the easiest possible way to make good money?

Women once more paraded as commodities and objects. How very 21st century.

Sex sells, and women are down with it since they take such jobs.

Posted in: T4 Tokyo - Eat, play ping pong, drink and repeat at Shibuya See in context

Many visitors end up being disappointed like that because of the weird portrayals and generalizations people overseas make of Japan..Everyone here's all these weird fantasies and tales and arrive to find out it's a normal place like anywhere else, albeit much safer and nicer and cleaner. The really awesome stuff is under the surface.

Posted in: 379 students fall ill after drinking milk at school in Ibaraki See in context

It's because the people complaining about the smell or taste probably have never had whole milk before and have absolutely no idea what milk is supposed to smell or taste like.

Japanese milk is fine!

Indeed. On a similar note, when I lived in Germany for a bit I was spoiled by the real whole milk, with the cream still on top, and boy it was great. Americans are coddled by the overly restrictive FDA regulations that don't expose them to real dairy products, so when they come into contact with real flavor they think there's something wrong with it, but in reality they just have no culinary sense at all thanks to all their regulations (yet it's the 'free-ist' country in the world? hmm). It's a shame, really.

Posted in: Giga Big Mac, nearly triple the size of a normal Big Mac, returns to McDonald’s Japan this month See in context

Kuaina Burger - hands down, one of the best. McDonalds, forget it. The old saying, you get what you pay for.

And a decent price on their gigantic beers is pretty nice. I quite like Oceans Burger in LaLaPort Toyosu too, their ketchup is amazing.

Posted in: 'Flying car' makes test flight See in context

I appear to be the only one who doesn't want flying cars. People are already horrible at driving only horizontally, causing a lot of deaths every year..And you want everyone to become a pilot? Enjoy having a drunk driver crash into your 10th floor flat.

Posted in: 14-year-old boy arrested for dropping 5-year-old girl from 2nd floor of sports center See in context

Of course it's a horrible, horrible incident & thankfully the younger kid is on the mend but the boy is just a kid too and if he does suffer from ASD - being touched or even brushed against (friendly or playfully) can result in a bad reaction.

Doesn't mean he's not dangerous..And when he gets bigger, wouldn't want him anywhere near people.

Posted in: Sagawa Express introduces 4-day workweek in Tokyo, Yamanashi See in context

You need a full day to visit the post office?!!! Lol. I understand for things like getting a passport or school visits. Basically I agree with you, the less work the better, provided my pay does not fall

It's also good for interviews since it's hard to keep taking days off for that. Always gotta keep up the churn.

Posted in: LDP to focus on 4 areas in crafting Constitution amendment proposal See in context

Very wrong and very misleading. The defensive forces are not the only way to defend nations. In fact it is the worse way.

The best way is to be peaceful.

Cute. Tell that to Poland in 1939.

Having a strong military and the ability to use it does not equate to war mongering. The risk of being invaded/attacked may be relatively small but the impact absolutely enormous, so it's a no-brainer to mitigate that risk with an updated and capable - and usable under the law - military. 'Speak softly and carry a big stick' combines the best of being peaceful while also making sure people know not to mess with you, so why not go with that?

Do any of you complain about Germany having a military and using it?

Posted in: 14-year-old boy arrested for creating ransomware; 1st such arrest in Japan See in context

All of you who are on this kid's side, ask yourself: if he had gone on to use the ransomware to shut down hospitals across Japan would you still feel the same way? Don't be so quick to pass positive judgment on him just because of his age.
