Posted in: Abe's secretaries, supporters questioned over 2018 dinner function See in context

At a time when other Japanese PM would quit every 6 months to a year. Called the Revolving door of Prime Ministers.

The Kims have remained in power in North Korea for a long long time too. Just saying.

If a dinner party in 2018 or a cherry blossom event is the best you have against this man, I can't take you seriously.

That ain't the half of it. There were lots of other scandals, including that little fascist kindergarten debacle.

Posted in: Human rights panel: Japan was wrong to detain Carlos Ghosn; owes him compensation See in context

I can't even remember the last time any human rights groups had anything good to say about Japan. Whether it's the Ghosn case, or racial and other discrimination, or indefinite detention of asylum seekers, or horrid working conditions for workers from other poorer Asian countries, or child abuse. Japan does not like being compared to countries like China.

bjorn:

C A S H works fine, if they wont take my CASH i wont shop at their store they simply won't be getting my money.

I wouldn't want to see stores refuse cash. The elderly are more confident with cash unless the ore-ore calls sart again. But for many of us under 60's, we're sick of all those 1 and 5 yen coins, and fiddling about with change and heavy, bulging wallets.

I dream of a common point card. I have almost 30 different point cards.

That's why I don't use any of them. No point in having one card for each shop. I'll stick to my credit card and Suica.

Unbelievable. Absolute incompetence. Does the so-called mother have to smack her child in front of other people before they realize that something's not right?

By the way, does the 'mother' get food during her 9-year stint?

Posted in: G-20 summit opens as leaders urge united response to virus See in context

Then again, I'm sure the other G20 leaders present are glad that he didn't attend, as he probably would have nothing constructive to say anyway.

They probably didn't want to get the virus from the 'president'. The whole family has become a virus.

Trump playing golf for the umpteenth time (more than Obama played in 8 years) and during a meeting of G20 leaders on the pandemic.

That's not true. He promised, before he came 'president', that he wouldn't have time to play golf. He promised.

Wasn't there just an article on how the Japanese were shocked at how Americans love junk food or how large the portions are? Do you want a two-faced burger with that, sir?

Here's one solution - make sure the price of airfares is affordable. I just looked at prices for December - absolutely ridiculous.

Posted in: Biden calls Trump most irresponsible president in American history; rules out national lockdown See in context

The man-child just seems to be playing golf, sulking, and sending Ghouliani to drum up support. Oh, by the way, you have a job. It's called running the country and looking after your citizens. Get out now if you're interested. I notice he's staying put in Washington. Seems like he's trying to barricade himself in. But come Jan 20, they'll be storming the palace.

Posted in: Tipping, white teeth, fast food, and other Americana Japanese people don’t understand See in context

No, I don't understand this obsession with glowing white teeth (see Trump). But then again, I don't think vampire teeth are sexy either.

"Don't cross your legs," "don't blow your nose,"

Seen all those in Japan on a regular basis. Do as I say and not as I do.

And fast food? Excuse me, but KFC and McD seem to be really really popular in Japan. Do as I say and not as I do.

"Why do Americans have so many house parties?"

Err, maybe because they want to socialize?

Good grief! Do they also have cram schools for kindergarten entrance exams too? What next, cram schools to leave the uterus?

As long as it's his (or more likely his donors' and gullible followers') money, then go ahead. The rest of the country is continuing as normal toward Jan 20.

With Ghouliani as his best lawyer, I REALLY feel at ease.

Posted in: 27,400 foreign travelers visited Japan in October: JNTO See in context

Once again, stats changed to make things look rosy and attractive in Japan. I would NOT regard students or re-entering expatriates as visitors. The only visitors are the occasional businessmen who won't stay long.

erik:

thats alot of people from china...

You call 4,500 a lot???!!! That's a drop in the bucket compared to the total number of Chinese who either study here or are long-term or permanent residents. Plus, there were more Vietnamese coming here. Eyes rolling.

Posted in: English ad in Japan has some seeing a command to stay infected with coronavirus this Christmas See in context

And Japan has the lowest TOEIC scores in Asia, go figure...

Well, to be honest, I think North Korea is doing slightly worse. Just slightly.

Hell, I bet even Kim Jong Un's English is better than most Japanese politicians.

My question again is, Why the need for English in the first case? It's not even an official language here. When you really need English, it's not available.

Posted in: Obama, in memoir, recalls Japan's revolving-door leadership era, bowing to emperor See in context

Granted, it does look strange when a tall guy like President Obama bows that much, but at the end of the day, it's called respect and manners. I remember when Princess Diana curtsied to the emperor. She went right down until her knees nearly touched the ground. Of course, the Japanese egos were stroked. When you're that tall, you don't go that low.

And to all the repubs who criticized Obama. Where was the outrage when the man-child saluted a North Korean general????!!!!!!!!!!! And that's your president???!!!!!

Oh dear. The ball's in your court now, Ossanamerica. Please tell us how Japan is doing the best out of all East Asian countries.

Will we go back and start asking for negative PCR for individuals flying from South Korea?

As far as I know, only foreigners (ie people who live here) coming BACK to Japan are forced to take a PCR test before setting foot here. Unless, of course, Japanese are immune to the virus.

bakakuma:

Foreigners don't dictate what is right and wrong in the world.

I have no intention of dictating what is right or wrong in Japan. If smokers want to get lung cancer, then it 's no skin off my back. Go for it. Doesn't matter how much the tobacco industry advertises - I will never buy their products, including their beverages.
