Posted in: Australia defends choice of remote detention center to house locals evacuated from Wuhan See in context

Good on Australia.

Meanwhile in Japan: "Oh, you don't want to go for testing or to quarantine? Okay then. Please go home and make sure you spread your germs around as much as possible."

Posted in: Japanese police officers increasingly forgetting their guns in public restrooms See in context

It's crazy. In the UK, a country where police DO need guns, they routinely don't have them. Yet in Japan, a country where they are really not necessary, they have them.

Posted in: 3 Japanese returnees from Wuhan test positive for new coronavirus See in context

If you have to take two weeks off work for quarantine, does your company still have to pay you your usual wage? If not, I couldn't afford to take the time off. Must be others like me, who would happily stick with quarantine as long as we don't lose two weeks of pay.

Posted in: 3 Japanese returnees from Wuhan test positive for new coronavirus See in context

I can't be the only one who thinks this has all been blown up to ridiculously hysterical levels, just like SARS and MERS were. More people die from the flu than this each year. If you have a regular immune system, and are not elderly, you have nothing to worry about. Even if you get infected, so what? Looking at the symptoms, it's just like a bad cold or mild flu.

Posted in: While the West tends to see robots and artificial intelligence as a threat, Japan has a more philosophical view that has led to the country's complex relationship with machines. See in context

Japan is convinced there is a problem with a lack of workers. This isn't true. Pay decent wages and provide decent benefits, and people will come.

Posted in: Cafe manager who dated one of his maids kidnapped and beaten by yakuza See in context

I once went to a maid cafe to see what all the fuss was about, and it was one of the weirdest, creepiest 30mins of my life. Utter weirdos everywhere.

They now say it is spread via eyes, so face masks really are pointless.

Posted in: If you live in Japan but were not born here, which food or drink item do you miss most from your home country? See in context

Large potatoes, Horlicks, brown bread, non-Japanese rice, whole chickens, whole joints of beef for Sunday roast.

Posted in: Japan confirms 2nd new coronavirus infection See in context

I highly doubt anyone feeling sick will even bother to present themselves to a quarantine office. This is all totally meaningless.

Posted in: Bank of Japan lifts growth outlook; keeps easy money policy See in context

The last thing I want is inflation in Japan. Guaranteed salaries won't rise, and as such, inflation would be a death knell to the already fragile economy.

Posted in: Japan looks to protect intellectual property in wagyu beef cattle See in context

The fat in the Wagyu beef is much healthier than the fat in our American cattle, or so we are told anyway.

Nonsense. Japanese cattle are raised on corn, meaning the meat is full of unhealthy omega-6 fats. American and Australian grass-raised cattle are much healthier. Cattle aren't designed to eat corn. That's why Japanese cows are all obese and full of fat.

Posted in: Less than one in four surveyed Japanese men has a girlfriend; over one in three women has a beau See in context

The results would be completely different if the question were "How often do you have sexual intercourse?". There is a lot of sex going on in Japan, just not with people's partners.

Roundabouts are so much better than traffic lights every hundred meters! Keep the traffic moving.
