This waste of breath can vote since 18, therefore, he is no longer a minor. Wake up Japan.

Well, I never thought I would ever agree with any Komeito ideas. Sounds like fair thing though

"As the birth rate declines and the population ages, we will need to put more resources toward social security and education," Natsuo Yamaguchi said in a group interview. "The public will not accept it if only defense spending suddenly doubles."

Posted in: In Japan, parents still must single-handedly shoulder all responsibility for raising children. Our country’s philosophy and basic approach toward child rearing are wrong. See in context

What rubbish. Elementary school teachers do so much heavy lifting. And nursery school teachers for that matter. A lot of the elementary school teachers I know tell me that parents expect them to teach their children everything! And a lot of parents I know are lazy enough to leave the teaching about life aspects to teachers.

And this loser knows all about cowards. He doesn’t want ICAC, because it will expose his inability to lead. Waste of space.

This soon-to-be-irrelevant populist buffoon is desperate to avert attention from his ineptitude and moral vacuum.

Posted in: What do you think are some of the main differences between the way Japanese and Western media report the news? See in context

Japanese media insists on reporting suicides!! Creating copycat events.

also, one of the first things Abe did when he seized control again in 2012 was to purge the NHK board and put in his cronies. He also went after Ichiro Furutachi from TV Asahi, Shigetada Kishi of TBS’ News 23, and Hiroko Kuniya from NHK’s Close Up Gendai. All critics of LDP and of him. When I saw it happening I thought I was living in China!!

Posted in: 2 women, political opposites, vie for LDP leadership See in context


These 2 are colleagues of the same political party. Not political opposites.

they represent very different ends of the LDP.

Takaichi is a rabid ultranationalist, Thatcher-loving, war mongering, racist, sexist, bigoted misogynist. Noda is none of that.

Posted in: Vaccine mandates: Is no jab, no entry into restaurants, cafes, bars, sporting and event venues discrimination? See in context

Well, you’re not forced to wear a collared shirt and nice shoes, but if you don’t, some restaurants or bars/clubs will refuse you entry. Don’t see people protesting about that!!

so, no it’s not discriminatory at all.

@Burning Bush

De Santis is actually helping workers because the mandates force them to quit.

what utter rubbish, idiotic lack of logical argument.

This Governor Ron Death Sentence will have the deaths of so many people on his hands , and he’ll probably skate because republicans are expert at evading responsibility.

Please no! She’s a rabid far right nationalist. She’ll send Japan into even worse relationships with the neighbours.

Women are going to start wearing '70s pant suits if this persists.

because it’s their fault? So they have to change their behaviour?

whoops! Hard to eat your breakfast with your foot in your mouth.

Posted in: What is the best way to prevent pedestrians, glued to their smartphones, from stepping carelessly into oncoming traffic, falling off train platforms or bumping into each other on the sidewalk? See in context

Ten years living here, it’s not just the smartphone-glued people, it’s everyone! In car parks pedestrians here act as if your car backing out of a space is invisible. Cultural thing? The arrogance of people here is astonishing. Or is it heiwa bokke?

Posted in: 2 injured in acid attack in Tokyo subway station; suspect at large See in context

@rocketpig Right on!

this is exactly what I keep saying about the reporting of suicides. The reporting of certain details just produces copy-cat occurrences. Especially in Japan where there is a very strong ‘group’ mentality.

this domestic terrorist will be caught soon and plead the same kind of ridiculous garbage as the the knife guy. And the media will breathlessly report his every excuse. And the cycle continues.

Yuck. She peaked in BMX Bandits. Since then became typical fake Hollywood schlock. This revolting elitist Amazon series is very fitting.

Don’t report this! This is not news. It’s just planting seeds for other people who have the same ideation. It’s not worth commenting on, nobody needs to hear your RIPs etc. It’s irresponsible’journalism’ at best.

Seriously?! The ‘greatest’ military power in the history of the world isn’t ready to repatriate its own people?! No wonder they are as despised as the Romans were in those occupied territories.

Oh, and tell the ping pong players that doing their tiny little neurotic fist pumps when their opponent flubs a shot is not the slightest bit in good faith.

Get rid of the professional sports, the ‘millionaire’ sports, like golf, soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis… these are multi-million dollar professional industries. They have no place in the olympics.

This decision goes completely against what the olympics is supposed to support, world peace. Just proves that the IOC is only about money, and screwing host countries.

Come on!!! It’s a minute silence. Surely the beloved sponsors can accommodate that?!
