CCP is the second most powerful party in the world. Soon to be the top dog maybe. We can alway join them. Anything’s better than LDP/Nippon Kaigi/unification Church.

Many jobs available there too. You'll have to check with your local travel agency to see how much one way tickets cost for you to go there.

This is wrong. It's just kids and young ppl using their older relatives' Mercari accounts to purchase kpop goods. I've seen it around here.

Great news for the dirty scum that do this or plan to do this. Leave the baby at home all day and night, dies then only gets a slap on the wrist. Perhaps for a country that is pushing folks to have children due to population decline, you would expect for them to treat children like treasure and punish those that cause the death of children to the fullest extent of the law. Yet child killers still get light sentences. Why?

My Japanese wife vowed never to let our children attend a Japanese childcare centre after briefly working in a local Tokyo childcare centre and was surprised that she needed no formal training or regulations and that the staff were often unkind and even cruel to the children

Because of one lowly childcare center in Tokyo, I guess ALL Japan childcare centers must be horrible with terrible teachers hmmmm

Posted in: 3-year-old girl dies after being left in bus for 5 hours See in context

I am only judging by my son's Kindergarten, after roll call, the teacher tells the office if a student hasn't come and hadn't called in absent. Then the office will call the parents if all is OK by at least 10am. However, she was a bus rider so somebody should have noticed something strange among all of the staff and boss. Was this one of those unlicensed Kindergartens where kids are only faces and not names?

So I guess it is better to just let China takeover Taiwan because of an event in an entirely different country, I see.

In what country do you live?  Not in Japan I am guessing!

In our present location and previous location stray cats fighting all night, cat feces all over the place, call and are told no such services in either Tokyo ward.

I live right in the middle of Japan. Perhaps busier city officials don't do anything but out in the burbs they come quickly.

Well instead of attacking people, you can call animal control if these cats are upending your life. Animal control here takes care of these problems quickly here actually from people I know that had cats taking over their yards.
