Posted in: Mother arrested for attempted murder of 25-year-old son See in context

Is this perpetrator a Korean National? But she has a Japanese first name. I assume she has a legal status in Japan as a citizen or a legal resident.If someone in America is in the news we normally don’t identify that person by his or her ancestry. I assume that the reporter for this tabloid inserted the woman’s ancestry.

Posted in: Japan Times changes reference to 'comfort women' after backlash See in context

Looking at the gist of the comments, it appears that Japan is still a male chauvinist society. Equally disturbing is the predominance of racial prejudice among Japanese males. This national deficiency explains the Japanese ethos motivating the barbarism committed during the second world war and the failings of international relations in the current era

Posted in: 2 men sought over 3 bag-snatching incidents in one morning See in context

These punks are all over the world. They all pick on defenseless women and the elderly. They travel in groups because they are cowards. We have them in Hawaii and they pick on Japanese tourists. The next time you see a purse snatching in progress just slug the perpetrator and they will run away because they are afraid to fight

Posted in: Increasingly desperate single women bear brunt of economic inequality See in context

Work insecurity among women and disparity in wages by gender are major factors In the declining population in Japan’s rural communities. The Japanese government’s medieval approach to favor the male worker over the female contributes to the social migration of women to urban areas to increase their wages and pursue social equality. This leaves Japan’s rural areas facing a decline in future generations to carry on the family farms and communities

Posted in: Court rules medical school must return fees after rigging exam scores See in context

The refund of test fees is a given but the real issue is the harm caused to all the female applicants. They relied on the schools to act honestly and fairly in scoring the exams and processing their applications. Their lives and careers were altered and the schools must compensate them for the fraud and false representations of fair test administration. The schools must also compensate these women for the emotional distress that they suffered by being wrongly denied admittance and to have their life careers impacted

never mind the innocent victims. The courts always focus on the welfare of the perpetrator. The commission of murder and manslaughter have become common place in this Society to the extent that we focus on the perp and bow our heads to the victims .Judges and sentencing officials tend to come from the upper end of society and have no empathy for lowly victims

Posted in: Foreign casino operators go all in as they vie for Osaka license See in context

The Best Sites for the Three Casinos in Japan to Attract Foreign Patrons are:

Osaka, Fukuoka and Naha. Why?

Accessibility. The three Japanese Casino Cities have ocean ports to accommodate ocean liners and are in proximity to the Asian Casino market which includes Korea, China, Taiwan, Philippines, and Southeast Asian countries.

Lower Costs. Casino gamblers do not like to play in only one casino. Having all three casinos in relatively close proximity will allow travel companies to package all three locations on reduced costs. More visitors for each location will be the result.

Community Support. All three Japanese locations are generally in support of economic stimulation and job creation and are therefore more open minded and receptive of the gaming industry. If these casinos are successful in stimulating the local economies, Japan then can move forward to consider additional casino sites on its Eastern shores and areas. Tokyo, Yokohama and other major sites do not now have the community support and the costs to win the populace over will be too great and contentious.
