YuriOtani: "I have noticed the zero compassion displayed by some posters. The Americans did something call dehumanization. The turning of Japanese from people to animals. It is easy to kill non humans. The Americans come up with excuses to why the bombs were dropped...."

Bizarre.

"But what these sages too often ignore is that Japan is a dynamic country, one that’s constantly evolving. Big cities are different than small towns, Kyushu is different than Hokkaido, and Tokyo has a heart thumping to a beat all its own"

Yeah right,dynamic country ??!! That's hilarious.Japan is Japan wherever you go,that's why we all travel overseas any chance we can.This guy needs to get ou a little more.

Posted in: Japanese company meetings: Getting by at the table See in context

"Another aspect I found striking about meetings in Japanese business environs was the pace. I was used to people systematically tackling a problem, wasting no time in assessing what would be the most effective means of addressing the issue at hand. In the case of this team, the subject matter would be mulled over for hours. We rarely finished meetings on time (which wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t cut into the lunch hour), and it always seemed as though everything that could possibly get said, was said."

At a Japanese company ?? Yeah right. This HAS to be made up.

"Fruits and veggies here are the best in the world"

Maybe compared to Europe,but compared to South East Asia,Australia or California it's ridiculously overpriced and the choice is very limited.

Posted in: Architecture in Japan See in context

"real" Japanese architecture has to be some of the ugliest in the world.Council flats and schools look like prisons,everything rusting and aging in 5 years...the seaside is the worst perhaps.

Posted in: Reticent Toyota president typical for Japan Inc See in context

He was not picked on leadership ability so don't expect him to show it.He is a very very spoilt Keio buy who prefers racing cars to working.He won the Japanese ovarian lottery.Toyota's silly mistake was choosing him in the first place.
