Posted in: Ask not what natto can do for you See in context

Natto is great.

As a Cornishman, replaces baked beans in my dietary regime.

I do break from unthinking tradition in adding ketchup,salad cream and popping it into my bread to add flavour,though.

If you can't pass entrance exams for high schools or universities in this country nowadays,you must be severely lacking.

Plus the obligatory Kyodo gaslighting last paragraph to include 'foreigners' in the crime.

The disparity between how full time and part time workers are treated is one of the main reasons why these jobs cannot be filled.

Posted in: Japanese opt for short, cheap overseas trips for Golden Week holidays See in context

Not bigging up Japan at all

Just reporting that this idea of Japanese tourists going abroad is total nonsense.

They're just grabbing cheap flights during campaigns and staying in the cheapest accommodation they can find.

Japan still thinking they're relevant to global economy is so sad.

The only reason America humours them is that Japan is a convenient base to cover the threat of Russia and CCP in Pacific.

That's all nowadays.

They're all coming down here to Ryukyus instead of Hawaii.

A lot cheaper,and similar vibe.

Inundated at the restaurant,and surprisingly great weather for this time of year.

The funniest aspect to this nonsense is that Japan is such a long archipelago.

Equivalent to stretching from Norway to Chad in Africa.

Wear what you want,when you want,as long as it doesn't have soy sauce or sweat stains on it.
