It seems the young generation is ready to change things. If only the same would apply to the government.

For me , all religions are some sort of cult. I was baptised against my will when I was 8 years old.
My mother converted to Islam for her second husband. After a few weeks she realised what a mistake that was.

Posted in: Paramedics and others mentally train themselves as they work at the scenes of accidents and fires, but shootings are unique, and (in Japan) they usually don't see gunshot wounds. They were shocked by the horrific incident, and so we want to work to provide psychological care. See in context
I guess they are more used to see stabbing wounds and people who jumped from high buildings / in front of trains

Make it as difficult as possible to come, that’s the big plan. Then nobody comes!
The whole thing is more illusion than reality. Like so many things in japan.

This might be a thing for first time visitors but not for someone who already has seen most of the tourist stuff.
They should make the tourists wear bells , ( like lepers) so locals will be able to flee in time .

There is no guarantee you will able to visit shops and restaurants. As soon as they find out you are a tourist you will be barred from entering.

Having a big sister around could be expected provide Prince Hisahito, who is in second line to the throne after his father, with psychological support
She has her own life and surely doesn’t want to play babysitter for her little brother.
And as long as Mako is living peacefully in Japan under her family's watchful eyes, she can devote herself to various duties with peace of mind."
I guess thats why she left japan in the first place.

I bet Katsurada has never operated a boat himself. If he was an experienced captain he knew how fast the weather can change.
We went on a tour to Gunkanjima and the weather changed within five minutes from sunny to heavy downpour and high waves.

A friend who lives in japan told me, the japanese people are quite happy about the tourist ban. They don’t want them to return. Especially in Kyoto.

Lots of young women dream of marrying a salaryman in one of the trading houses, etc.
A husband who is chronically overworked and barely at home. Sounds like the marriage of dreams. But whatever floats your boat.

Is this a serious question?
It is. I asked because it would be interesting to know how a certainly fetish develops.

Posted in: People today, particularly young people, are not watching TV. I myself haven't owned a TV for 20 years. I've been hearing about a push to get fees from the internet streaming viewers. See in context
Japanese TV is a waste of time.
