Posted in: Yen sinks to 34-year low past 160 per dollar See in context

Interesting how it works 34 low against the dollar but the GBP rates not as bad as even 2007.

Good time for UK tourists to come getting nearly 30 yen more to their pound from just a year ago.

Posted in: Japanese city loses residents’ personal data, which was on paper being transported on a windy day See in context

Can't decide if it's good due diligence or insanity they spent 2 days searching for the papers. Wonder how many additional pages they saved.

Posted in: Man arrested after pressing naked butt against water faucet in Tokyo park See in context

Obviously it should not be a funny story but something about the binoculars makes this hilarious.

I have never used them at night but are they really gonna help search things.

Him riding naked with binoculars hanging from his neck would have been a ridiculous sight.

Posted in: Support for Kishida cabinet slips to 28%: poll See in context

Always interested its worded as support of his cabinet, suggesting the issue is not him.

"He got a boost in May when he hosted a G7 leaders' summit in the city of Hiroshima but the cabinet's support has plummeted 17 percentage points since then, to just 28%"

The boost was him the decline the cabinet.

Posted in: Japan soccer chiefs neglecting women's game, says former striker See in context

Feel she has a point to a degree regarding JFA, however in all seriousness the she believes cup games are effectivley glorified friendlies.

Interest in this is likely low for that reason plus 6am kick off times in Japan.

Posted in: Doctor arrested over alleged sex act with minor See in context

He will get a slap on the wrist and a fine at most, age of consent is 13 is it not?

Unless he tricked forced or confused her not gonna get a heavy punishment, and on the basis she was on a dating app any half decent lawyer will get him off.

Morally shocking but unless i am mistaken legally hes pretty safe

To the issue nothing, to the comments speculating on her age when he got her pregnant everything.

Posted in: Couple arrested for leaving 2 children unattended while they played pachinko; 1 child dies See in context

The Japan news states he is not the father of the children so whilst still disturbing he did not get her pregnant, based on the age of youngest child it would appear she was pregnant with someone elses child when she married him.

5 bags 530,000 unless he got super lucky amazing the sums people seem to randomly carry with them.

Posted in: Woman arrested for leaving newborn baby in hotel room’s toilet bowl See in context

Better education and choices around protection would be very useful.

The father of this child unless was unfortunate his protection split or she lied about her own contraception should be on the chopping board for this also.

Despicable behaviour from both

Carrying a child and still working in the sex industry?

In such a image concscious country amazes me the brothel did not kick her to the kerb or was she not showing much.?

Serious reforms are needed for this, be it baby hatches reduced abortion costs or better support all round for women in this postion.

As Hiro mentioned having seen labour first hand it amazes me they can get up and carry on afterwards with no medical care

Posted in: Amber Heard testifies she was assaulted by Johnny Depp See in context

Its borderline perverse this is categorized as entertianment news around the world.

It should be a serious case about serious issues of domestic violence.

Sad all round that the two of them and the media have turned it into some freak show.

Maybe im getting old before my time.

Possible could get even worse cost of living crisis in the UK rising Electric and Gas prices will be interesting just how many will be forced to drop it and other such services.

Posted in: Man arrested for exposing himself to woman says he has done it on at least 30 occasions See in context

Agree with the above why so easily admit to so many offences hoping the honesty gets a reduced sentence?

Must admit my work has been stressful recently not a way i thought of trying to relieve it different strokes and all that.

Posted in: 25,000 runners take part in Tokyo Marathon See in context

Would love to know the numbers behind the decision making.

I had a place in the Osaka Marathon just last Sunday that was cancelled to general runners, odd Tokyo could go ahead with similar numbers.

Political to have the capital as the first? Because the big star Kipchoge had committed to Tokyo?

Guess we will never know.

Unbelievable even before the invasion someone would buy a putin chocolate bar or tshirt.

But that said i remember village vanguard selling a tshirt mocked up as the killers band that had Osama Hitler Bush Saddam and a couple of others on it so maybe not so unbelieveable after all.

Posted in: 17-year-old boy who attacked mother of classmate, then stabbed himself, dies in hospital See in context

Seems odd he brought so many violent weapons with him but stabbed himself without using them.

That Mum may have saved her daighters life putting up that much of a fight.

Quite the coup to get the best Marathoner in the world, wonder after the Osaka Marathon was cancelled this week if Tokyo will survive the chop.

Kicks it and then looks as if a child holds the cat whilst he slaps it.

Posted in: Tokyo, 12 prefectures ask to extend COVID quasi-emergency See in context

Dear bar and Restaurant owners please close early to stop the spread.

Just ignore the mass gatherings on the trains and also the Tokyo Marathon running by outside.

Whilst personally happy it looks likely to go ahead got to feel for those affected by these actions.

Posted in: Gov't panel OKs adding Wakayama Prefecture to COVID quasi-emergency See in context

As someone who rarely eats out or goes out drinking the state of emergency has not imposed any change on me at all.

This is not a boast but how absurd these quasi emergencies are.

Posted in: Japan to expand quasi-emergency areas as virus cases surge See in context

Interesting that To@yo already in so called emergency and Osaka have applied foremergency but neither have cancelled upcoming large scale Marathons, and the return of Sporting leagues.

Whilst personally happy attendances came come normally to J league games, hard to justify an emergency whilst holding such large gatherings.

Posted in: Japan widens virus restrictions but some people becoming less cooperative See in context

Full capactiy events can take place with anti virus measures but a bar/restaurant needs to close early.

I would be livid if my livelihood depended on owning such am establishment.

Posted in: Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo prefectures seek COVID quasi-emergency See in context

Having chosen to live in Japan i never like to overly bash my host, but these quasi emergency things are ridiculous.

Omicron will rip through in big numbrrs and then likely subside as seen in europe currently,

Koike wants to stop infections but not society wont happen

Posted in: Japanese club plans crowdfunded Iniesta statue See in context

Crowd funding for this is more than a bit cheeky.

An owner and club as rich as Kobe should be paying for it should they want it.

Posted in: Japan looks to expand COVID quasi-emergency to Tokyo, 10 other prefectures See in context

Both Tokyo and Osaka marthons due next month.

The return of the J league presumably with a spectator cap, the numbers are going to surge.

What ever vaccine opinion you have we need to start to live with this, this in out attitude just grinds people down.
