I love the simplicity of it all. Plus, I'm always in need of pockets.

“It looks especially unusual seeing a Caucasian guy wearing this.”

I know the feeling. I can never contain myself whenever I see a Japanese person wearing western clothes. It looks so strange.

"this has to be killing Trump hating anti-USA liberals on this site to hear this."

Actually I'm looking forward to seeing Abe invent new ways of making his nose get even more brown.

I can just imagine the headlines:

PS Will Abe be rolling down more bunkers this time?!

Posted in: Abe nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize on U.S. request: Asahi See in context

Jesus Christ, it just gets worse. Recommending the idiot for a prize is one thing, but when you do it simply because he asked you to.....

Abe has no spine. But then again, this is the guy who rolled down a bunker and then quickly got up and ran after the low-IQ man child like a lost puppy. He'd fit very well into the current Republican party. What a laughing stock the current American and Japanese administrations are!

Without a confession the Japanese police have nothing.

But don't the Japanese police usually force people to make fake confessions?

Note to self: If someone nominates me for the Nobel Peace Prize be sure to learn how to pronounce their name.

If you think that's bad, just wait till you find out how he pronounced the countries, Nepal and Bhutan.

Posted in: Do you think democracy is the best form of government? See in context

I think it is, but it also depends on the people. If the people are apathetic, easily led, immature or just plain stupid, then it just becomes a dictatorship or no better than a communist or facist state. I don't need to provide any examples, now do I?

Knik:

I agree that Bezo should share a bit more of that EXTREMELY large wealth, but AMI, NE and Pecker need to be knocked down a peg or two. If it's proven that Pecker did do something naughty, he may not be immune to prosecution anymore. He never deserved it in the first place. Lock 'em all up. Throw the swamp creatures in jail.

reckless:

@Pukey2, just get a biz hotel at Shimbashi and you can train to Haneda in 20 minutes. Also the night before Shimbashi has so much to offer.

My flight leaves at around 6:30am. We are recommended to arrive at check-in at least 2 hours before departure. What exact train are of you thinking of? I'm not living in London or even NYC.

I did check equivalent flights from Narita. Haneda had a premium of minus 20,000 yen!

jeff-lee:

Also, the "Haneda premium" still exists, based on my experience, ie flights out of the Tokyo airport tend to be more expensive than their Narita counterparts

That's what I thought, but that's not always the case. Why else do you think I take the 6:30am flight from Haneda?

I have two recommendations and they both concern trains. First, that stretch between Narita Airport T2 station and Narita station is only served by one local train per hour. ONE! Two at most. And yet getting to Narita station lets you go onto so many other places. I personally live closer to Narita airport than Tokyo and yet it takes nearly twice as long to get there, thanks to slow, infrequent trains and buses. And don't get me started on early flights. Those living in central Tokyo can get the cheap buses near Tokyo station and be there in less than an hour!

Second, what is the point of having more and more flights if there is no flaming transport at night? Many a times I've had to wait hours and hours at the airport just to catch a 6:30am at Haneda. The airport hotel is a rip-off. It wouldn't be half as bad if they had night buses, but nothing! Sure, they can have 24hr anime cafes, vending machines, sex hotels and convenience stores. London now has 24hr train services during the weekends. And for years and years, they've had a great night bus service every night. I'm due at Haneda soon again, and I am not looking forward to sleeping there again.

That keeps women from getting better jobs and holds back the economy.

I'm sure there's a question and answer in the one sentence.
