Posted in: Buying a home in Japan: What you should consider See in context

In my understanding to get a mortgage in Japan is rather difficult for example in the US you can get a mortgage with a job offer letter but in Japan at least 1 or more years as a full time employee is necessary, and the loans are non-recourse meaning you can’t just give the bank the keys and walk away. This suggests to me that banks think that housing as collateral is not sufficient and that the price or value will inevitably fall. On the other hand there is no place like home.

My vision improved after I stopped reading news on my iPhone on the train, and started jogging and walking more outside. The eye muscles get a balanced workout repeatedly refocusing on objects at far distances.

Just back from Kyushu and saw multiple listings for large traditional houses with even 10 rooms for 15 million yen or less near Nakatsu. Seems like it would be fun. A realtor also mentioned if you cannot get a bank mortgage that there are higher rate private loans but this article doesn’t address that.

Listen, even if she showed up broke, pregnant and asking for a place to stay, dad could have just said good luck and shut the door.

No need for rhetoric. Just look where the government spends money and you will see its priorities.

The reality I am starting to experience is that I finally have an effective tool to control anxiety to some extent instead of always being at its mercy. Controlling and focusing on your breathing can profoundly affect how you feel.

I started using a meditation app. Very effective to relax and relieve anxiety.

The reality is when you have children you will aspire to higher income jobs as opposed to having them first. I was ver low income when I had my first kid and it affected all my later choices. You have to put yourself last as opposed to first. Totally exhausted.

It may be difficult to get inflation in Japan because the corporations suck up and hoard the cash and do not increase wages.

Posted in: Did anything you learned at school prove useful for you in the adult world? See in context

Certainly how to write and how to type (yes we actually had a typing class in the 80's).

Also, a bit of Spanish, how to add, subtract, multiply and divide, and of course how to read and write short essays.

I feel sorry for today's kids who can't pull away from an LCD screen.
