Posted in: South Korean court says stolen statue must be returned to Japan See in context

I have little concern for childish squabbling between nations. Nationalism of this sort is immature and regressive.

Reclaiming stolen property is not nationalism. It's a legal right.

Shouldn't she have been prosecuted as an adult...because she is one?!?!

Posted in: 21-year-old man arrested over murder of girlfriend See in context

This happens so often in Japan. The girl wants to break up and they end up dead. It’s no surprise so many women want to remain single. 

These kind of blanket statements about Japan are so lazy. Can you actually give a date as to when the last time it was reported on this website? I bet you can't because these types of crimes are quite rare, but when it does happen it's sensationalised.

And no one will listen. People are still wearing their masks outdoors while walking alone. This country has been seriously traumatized by covid, and nothing will shake them out of it.

Posted in: South Korea plans fund to compensate World War II forced labor victims See in context

"It would be important that Japan sincerely maintains and inherits the poignant expressions of apology and remorse that it already expressed in the past," said Seo

This is perhaps the most significant item from this article. The Korean govt finally and publicly stating that japan has repeatedly apologized for war time atrocities.

Theses lawyers representing the remaining victims are ambulance chasers trying to make a quick buck. Leeches all of them.

Posted in: Psychiatric evaluation of Abe shooter ends See in context

He held a grudge against Abe and the reunification church. Did that really require 6 months of psychiatric evaluation?! Usually this is performed when suspects are hallucinating, have multiple personalities, or some other dillusions. I wonder if the govt believes he's a Manchurian candidate or something.

Posted in: Japan to tighten COVID border controls for travelers from China See in context

This is another useless restriction that is not based on anything except fear mongering

So says you and the WHO, but who can trust the WHO. They have defended China at every turn, even renaming the virus to covid-19 when it was initially called the Wuhan virus.

was arrested in August on suspicion of receiving bribes from Olympic sponsors.

In jail for 4 months! I don't wanna hear anymore gaijin saying that ghosn was treated differently because of his ethnicity. The j-govt can, and will, hammer down the nail that sticks up, regardless of where you come from.

Posted in: Man arrested for asking teenage girl to show him her underwear See in context

I see .. if you ask before sexually harassing someone, that makes it okay and not actually sexual harassment.

This isn't a Me Too moment where he was pressuring her for sex. He asked a creepy question and then left. Harassment implies some type of repeated behavior or coercion, neither of which happened. So again I ask, can a question be illegal? Your red herring of a response shows that your are oblivious to the legal implications of my query.

Posted in: Man arrested for asking teenage girl to show him her underwear See in context

Yeah, he's a creep, but can you really arrest someone for asking a question? Seems like a slippery slope to me.

Posted in: WBO gives Inoue bantamweight super champion status See in context

They did not give it to him. He earned it. There is a big difference

Uhhh...but the WBO has to GIVE it to him even though he earned it.

Amazing boxer. Hope he achieves his goal. Go Monster!

Posted in: Japan OKs highly autonomous 'level-4' driving from April 2023 See in context

A simpler solution to many of these issues in rural areas is to allow more immigration. Instead, Japan will invest truckloads of money so a few elderly people can be driven by robots around their village. Smgdfh...

Posted in: Hokkaido care home requires sterilization of mentally disabled couples See in context

The term "sterilization" is really over the top here (and the nazi analogies). The men had to undergo a vasectomy, which can be reversed, and the women had to wear contraception. Big deal.

And no one forced these people to undergo the procedure. This was a care home that they applied to get in. If they were unhappy with the conditions then they could go somewhere else.

Posted in: What's next for Japan after World Cup? See in context

What's next for Japan? Well middling performances in international play. The same as it always has been. Japan plays a good defensive game, but they totally lack scoring ingenuity. It's the rigid sports culture that prizes team over individual, which is fine. But it won't produce a super star.

Why does the title include "male employees?" Women can't take paternity leave. They take maternity leave.

Posted in: Lawmaker Sugita retracts past remarks on LGBT, other minorities See in context

Her remarks were made years ago. Why didn't she apologize and retract them then? Kishida will only appear weak by forcing her to do this. He is cleaning up Abe's mess but only encourages more detractors who smell blood.

Wth?! That is neither Tom nor Jerry. It debases the original intent and awesomeness that was T&J. Another reboot that I will gladly pass on.

Posted in: 15-year-old girl dies after being hit by train in Tokyo See in context

I'm guessing from the vague title that JT is trying to not sensationalize suicide but then why even write about it? And then include a suicide hotline at the end. This is a serious comment that I hope the staff at JT have.

Posted in: Father arrested for leaving 4-year-old daughter in car parking lot to discipline her See in context

My wife's parents disciplined her by making her get out of the house at night. I thought that was bad until I read that a father actually drove his daughter to a parking lot to discipline her.

Isn't it time to mandate a parenting license in order to procreate?

Like shuffling chairs on the titanic much?

These "ministers" are just figureheads for the cabinet position they lead. You could put a monkey in that position and achieve exactly the same result, perhaps even better!!
