Sueyoshi said the cushion of fat that resides just under the skin of Japanese people is thinner than that of Europeans, making it possible to administer an injection into the muscle by an insulin syringe.

Yeah, special people these Japanese are.

@Zoroto You don't have to be a doctor to know this true! Just go down to your local onsen!

Lady Gaga sends a lovely message to the people of Japan and the positive responses get so many down votes! Huh?

@klausdorth The evidence for that is still sparse. Maybe you can post a link to the article you refer to. I might go read it instead of just taking your word as fact!

Posted in: 345 people in Japan infected with coronavirus variants See in context

Japanese citizens vs foreign residents / visa holders vs tourists. Right now, tourists can't basically enter. Foreign residents can, but it's bit difficult. But Japanese citizens can enter/leave pretty much same as before. If a Japanese citizen flies to a nearby country today, returns tomorrow, they may meassure his temperature as they want, he may be already infected, but no symptoms yet. And he may start infecting.

But it's easier to blame it on foreigners for bringing it here.

.What are you all on about? There is no mention of foreigners in the article. Just a breakdown of how many people are infected with the new mutations.

Dangerous variants with the Olympics around the corner?

The mutations are more contagious but there is no evidence that they are more dangerous.

@Alan Harrison Please provide evidence to support this statement. (Generally, when Japanese pay compensation amongst themselves, the judge will drop the amount demanded by 10%. That does not happen with people of "non Japanese status", and the amount is often doubled)

And then this 'Japan still thinks that the world is it's cash cow.' You do know that the biggest holder of American foreign debt is Japan!

I hope their lawyer advises them to plead guilty. If they do they'll probably get a suspended sentence.

Didn't realize there was one! But I was wondering why the second home owners in my area were back to putting signs on their cars saying they are residing locally when I know for a fact they are not!

Well, it seems that the facility only houses 275 residents so 113 deaths is a very serious issue.

Posted in: One of the options is to shorten the self-quarantine period by effectively conducting PCR tests before the period ends. We should discuss new rules that are easier for those self-isolating to follow. See in context

@Luddite I didn't really have travel purposes in mind. But if there is someone who is ill and worried about having the virus it might be helpful information for them.

I was surprised to see PCR tests on sale next to the checkout at Aeon owned supermarkets (about 2900 yen if anyone is interested).

@snowymountainhell I very seldom comment so I don't know what you mean- 'we've seen your posts with HA-san'?

I IMAGINED the scenario that took place and I didn't state my opinion as fact. It is impossible to know what took place until this matter gets to court, if it ever does. It wasn't a justification for the violent acts inflicted on the victim.

I imagine the victim was a 'working girl'! Was probably dissatisfied with her services and wanted his fee back!

I'm a female and what that old codger Mori said doesn't bother me a jot! Cut him some slack, people! He is old and out of touch. In fact I'm way more pissed off about men identifying as women competing in women's sports.

Posted in: What are 'kira kira' names and why Japanese parents choose them for their kids See in context

'However, I feel that things have been slowly changing lately, and there have been a couple of schools and kindergartens that give their children English names to use during the classes or with their English teachers.

The kids seem to enjoy it, and their parents also seem to like the idea a lot! Most are thinking that if their child goes traveling or studying abroad, they can also use an English name so it will be a lot easier for them.'

Does nobody else find this disturbing?

@Mocheake I am sure they aren't. Only medical personnel need N95 masks. It would be wasteful for people in the street to have them. And they are extremely uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

The article you refer to contains glaring mistakes!

Shinzo Abe's father was Shintaro Abe not Zenji Abe. His father volunteered as a kamikaze pilot but the war ended before he could participate.

Don't be fooled! Koike is a wolf in sheep's clothing. She is cut from exactly the same cloth as Abe. Just the packaging is more attractive. From a privileged background. A conservative nationalist who supports text book reform and visits Yasukuni yearly. Nippon Kaigi member. She also supports changing Article 9 of the constitution.
