Posted in: Opposition leader Edano says Olympics cannot be held safely See in context

The Japanese people are not strong enough to oppose anything. Just mull along.

Exactly, the Japanese people aren't quite ready for democracy

Posted in: Tokyo reports 828 new coronavirus cases; 1,231 in Osaka See in context

The deniers have moved the goalposts to "hey, it is better than X country's numbers still!". Always a way to downplay something I suppose.

Exactly, they always try to shift the blame away from themselves and Japan. Pathetic to the extreme

Posted in: Confirmed cases of COVID-19 variants in Japan double in a week See in context

Unsurprising given the number of Japanese people who don’t wear masks or wear them around their necks. As a proportion of the population, non-Japanese are far more vigilant about masks than Japanese.

Definitely agree, foreigners are far more responsible than the Japanese and the blame for the spread is entirely on them so no sympathy here.

Posted in: Japan has entered 4th wave of COVID-19 infections, says gov't panel chief See in context

While the rest of the world has suppressed COVID and vaccinated most of their populations, Japan is still stuck in the 4th wave and likely will go to the 50th wave at this rate with by far the worst outbreak on Earth. Unique Japanese I guess

Posted in: 'Please drink' treated Fukushima water, China asks Aso See in context

Agree with China, and all Japanese citizens who sit back and don't protest against this government should be forced to drink the water too.

It's safe to say all us expats are on China's side over Japan any day

Posted in: Overseas Tokyo Olympic ticket holders may get only partial refunds See in context

Swindling the local populace is one thing but now Japan is swindling money from ordinary folk in the West too. I guess we're supposed to sit around and let this happen?

Posted in: 23 health ministry employees party until midnight despite virus restrictions See in context

Japanese people in the end get what they deserve,nothing will ever change there.

Exactly, everyone keeps blaming the J government but it's the Japanese people who are at the root of the problem. No sympathies whatsoever

Japan continuing to ride the coattails of the US.

Exactly, beyond pathetic and embarrassing

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

Funny how this article comes on the heels of yesterday's talking about a variant gaining traction here not found outside of Japan...

Exactly, am guessing this is the beginning of another propaganda campaign to show that foreigners are to blame instead of the Japanese

Posted in: 12% of Fukushima town still a no-go zone See in context

Minus the weeds, this structure doesn't look out of place in any Japanese town or city anywhere in Japan, given how the Japanese never perform maintenance or DIY on their buildings.

Agreed, the photos could be of any place in Japan

Posted in: Grief hasn't subsided for some survivors of tsunami See in context

A very tragic event.

Japan is very resilient when it comes to disasters, but when it comes to coping with disaster, they seem to not have much compassion or even acknowledge dealing with the emotional scars left by these events

Agreed, compassion is in short supply in this country

Posted in: U.N. finds no adverse health effects from Fukushima disaster See in context

I think people here love to be scared. Live in fear of every new report on Covid-19. But a positive report on radiation from the UN - that's fake news

Agreed, Japanese are taught from birth to be fearful of everything so they can be kept in line and treated as less than human. That Japanese people rejecting the findings of a UN report and labeling it as fake news as you say is not surprising, it's their standard cultural behaviour

Posted in: Foreign convenience store employee in Japan saves elderly woman from scammers with quick thinking See in context

I can’t imagine the Japanese convenience store clerks that I regularly deal with having the gumption or initiative to have done this.

Agreed, just like Bertie commented the Japanese are very robotic and wouldn't have the mindset for something like this!

Posted in: 50-year-old man arrested for swindling ¥10 mil from women in ‘sugar daddy' scam See in context

No sympathy at all for those kind of women. They are worst than prostitutes and escorts.

Best comment of the day!

Posted in: A look at what quarantine is like in Japan See in context

I thought the UK variant was brought in by that Japanese guy who decided he didn't need to quarantine and went out to have dinner with friends? Or was he the pilot? The point is, you can't blame foreigners for every single problem.

Agreed, and it's likely that the UK variant was brought in by dozens of Japanese from the UK. Even today they are pinning the blame on us expats, and we nod and accept it meekly. What a shame

Posted in: U.S. court clears way for extradition to Japan of Ghosn's accused escape plotters See in context

Japan has no bail system, which means no laws (punishment) for those who jump bail. He saw a loophole and made use of it to expose Japan and its corrupt justice system. Those who helped him shouldn't have to pay the price for Japan to save face. This whole thing will end badly for Japan because those that are extradited would lawyer up and the world media would there to show the real japanese justice system. Just give it up already.

Agreed, how silly can the US prosecutors get? They literally didn't commit any crime and this is all so that the Japanese people can save face and score a win over the "foreigner". Us expats have to make sure there are no more wins over us.

They couldn't have found anyone at all in the country under 60 of an age that could actually add value here..?

Posted in: The return of 'Terrace House'? Seina and Noah star in new series of the reality show See in context

Two grown women having a bath? What would your solution be? Ban all women from appearing in photos because someone somewhere may find it creepy? Perhaps burqas for all women from now on?

Isn't it obvious what he is talking about? Even though they are supposedly grown women they look like children so these types of photos are inappropriate (at least in other developed countries). They should be prohibited as it is illegal in other jurisdictions

Posted in: Ex-captain of U.S. sub apologizes for Ehime Maru collision on 20th anniversary See in context

A terrible accident but he has apologised multiple times now. An apology is required and accepted for all transgressions here but when a foreigner does it it's not accepted? Double standards once again

Posted in: Fewer people to get Pfizer vaccine in Japan due to syringe shortage See in context

I would like to see a full list of developed nations to see their vaccination numbers to date. Would Japan be bottom?

Yes they would be at the bottom even on a list of all countries on Earth. No country on Earth is as slow and behind as Japan, probably because they are focusing on the condom issue and the embarrassing condom sizes!

Posted in: 390 Tokyo Olympic volunteers quit after Mori's sexist remarks See in context

only 150,000 people out of 120 million signed the petition, and less than 500 volunteers out of 80,000 pulled out. We are in the 1% range

Great point, so less than 1% are against Mori while the rest are supportive, goes to show what sort of culture there is here

Agreed! Although it appears that only the Japanese are pushing this

Japan will blink first in this game.

Seeing as it's mostly Japan being aggressive, this is the best outcome

Posted in: Japan to clarify copyright rules to prevent cosplay violations See in context

Because this is what's important right now. Am I right?

Agreed, during the worst global pandemic in 100 years and one of the worst outbreaks on Earth in Japan, the government decides to tighten copyright rules for cosplay.. No other country goes this strict with copyright laws.. I guess this is "unique" Japan..

Posted in: Biden tells Suga U.S. committed to defending Japan See in context

Japan has, over the last 50 years, has perfected the art of antagoizing a conflict, and then playing the victim and accusing the other side of starting it. I hope that the USA is wise to this kind of tat-tic, before coming to Japans defence.

Agreed, no country has perfected playing the victim more than Japan. If this continues the US should not be coming to Japan's defence.

Posted in: Japan to halt entry of all nonresident foreign nationals See in context

A guy coming back from UK did not respect the quarantine. He was later found to be positive and between in had a diner his friends. He contaminated two friends and it is apparently the first case of domestic contamination of the UK variant. This person was a Japanese man.

Wow, so it was a Japanese who spread the new UK virus to and around Japan and it's foreigners who get punished by being banned from entry and being deported at will? Just wow..

Posted in: Gov't to expand state of emergency to cover Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo See in context

What’s with all of the personal attracts here? I am a “gaijin” living here. 10 years and counting. While I completely agree with wearing a mask, there are many things business owners, the govt, and the general population should be doing a much better job at. Start by not being so selfish rather it be financial or lack of concern about other’s health. Sorry but if a bar or restaurant can’t make it a few months with the insane profits they’ve been making over the years , shame on them. Sure it sucks to be closed but it’s better than being dead. Karaoke bars ? Hostess bars ? Shut them down . Give them a minimum amount of help. Being from California, where people are just genuinely anti anything common sense , well in my 10 years here, every year I see more people with the flu than I ever seen in my lifetime. Mask , public gargling, lack of proper hygiene, luckily this year with Covid , the general population is doing a slightly better job . If the govt wants Covid contained, they need to ramp up testing , contact tracing, and treatment ASAP . Until then, nothing changes.

Agree with everything you said Steve! Agree that restaurants and bars in Japan have been making off with insane profits for decades and yet all of a sudden they are unable to cope? Yeah right, shame on them.

Karaoke bars and hostess clubs are immoral from the beginning so I agree that they should be shut down and be forced to disband permanently.

And yeah, Japan has some of the worst hygiene in the world, agree with you on that one too!

Posted in: Japan finds new coronavirus variant in travelers from Brazil See in context

Quite obviously they were Japanese who fell sick in Brazil and decided to head home, endangering other passengers and crew. I hope Brazil will call this out.

100% agreed

Posted in: Japanese cheerleaders lift spirits amid pandemic See in context

If their dances are anything like the JPOP Idols the I'm sure I could don one of my Mrs skirts and do a better routine with no practice.

Yikes, maybe keep your idol following and private night time activities to yourself. No expat should be allowed to watch J idols
