Avoiding the large dire groups of buisnessmen is great. I hate company drinking parties, work without the pay.

Posted in: School bullying cases hit record high in Japan in FY2018 See in context

Back some years ago my wife was the captain of the HS volleyball team.

If the coach didn't like the performance of the team he would have her place her hands to the side and spike the ball at her, intentionally at her face. This led her to leave the team.

Most of the other kids would pass down that punishment to the one under them....

I wonder where it all comes from.

Posted in: 7 Vietnamese arrested for stealing cosmetics, health products over 4 years See in context

Looking at it from another angle.

24.5 million is retail value of the stolen items (reported).

That is not too much when divided between the 7 if them over the time invested.

Were they employed at the time or part of the grey/black industry.

Many of them are taken advantage of, either by others in the group or by the corporations that are willing to hire them. If employed, mist do not make a living wage and are willing to do something illegal to put food on the table and stay warm/cool.

Is this a corrupt group or is it a product of the system that needs a major overhaul?

Posted in: Japan labor body to step up support for foreigners, freelancers See in context

A for the money that you "lose" from your pension when you leave...

A good labour union will inform you that you should be able to transfer the credits to your home country, if they gave signed an agreement with Japan. The US does but the UK just doesn't double tax you.

More information can be searched out through Google or any other search engine. It is only a scam if you are ignorant of the rules or are not from a member country.

Posted in: Japan drug price reforms risk hurting investment: Bristol-Myers CEO See in context

@mmekdw

So true. I have heard the same.

Ad, body temperature is also different, that is why... (insert irrelevant information here).

I am surprised that I was able inter-breed into this other species at all.

That being said, I am also shocked by the amount of prescribed medication over here, and for the smalled sniffle. Of the various doctors that I have talked to, most prescribed medication is in the request of the patient. Either it is not needed yet demanded, or it is cheaper than the same at the pharmacy.

Posted in: Parade rehearsal held for emperor's enthronement ceremony See in context

Generally, this would be table-topped for timing and security.

Why would they want to close this area down to even further stress the economy of the area?

From a security stand point, isn't this a bit on the risk side?

Posted in: Schoolteacher bullied by colleagues; curry rubbed against eyes See in context

There are many talking about the teachers, but what about the head teacher, principal, and school board.

Rreading into the article, it seems that this has been going in long enough for them to know...

They should be on the cutting board as well!

Posted in: Users tell us they don't want their children to see tattoos. We don't want Japanese customers to leave us. See in context

I have a mid-sized tattoo and have been to many of the onsen down here in Fukuoka, bepu included.

I just drape my towel over it while going in and then it is uncovered the rest of the time. NEVER has a guest complained. I actually have good conversations with them.

The trouble us the ignorance of the operator or the ones that dislike foreigners. It is also the foreigners in general that don't know how to properly share a bath.

Juse by the comments that I have read in the past...

80% will be gropers from the train, 15% will be shoplifting housewives and the last 5 will be public servants

Posted in: No kidding: Japanese airlines offer seat maps to avoid bawling babies See in context

Korean air does it right. Great kid's meals and toy packs with color books, stuffed animals and a blanket.

The one thing that could help out a lot is to have info packs for the parents on how to equalize inner ear pressure for the wee ones. This would eliminate most of the crying.

As for the kicking and what not, that is generally older children and business men. A good attitude adjustment for the parent is best served.

Posted in: Fukushima wind turbine, symbol of disaster recovery, to be removed See in context

FYI

This was an experimental WTG and was used as a test bed.

Mitsubishi Corporation is responsible for providing coordination for grid integration and environmental impact assessment. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is the manufacturer of the 7MW oil pressure drive-type floating wind turbines.

Hitachi manufactured the 2MW offshore wind turbine, the 66kV floating offshore substation and its monitoring system. Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding is the manufacturer of the floater for the 2MW wind turbine.

Posted in: 16 security cameras installed on Akihabara streets See in context

Not bad, especially if these cameras will have the face scanning incorporated in them now or upgraded later. It's always good to have the government and paying corporation have track of where you are and the ability to target you for the best shopping deals in your exact location. If so, hope that the general public didn't pay for these (yeah, right!).

Wouldn't it be more cost efficient and beneficial to just put a couple more beat-cops there?

Just like Japan playing follow-the-leader and "me to" with the UK and US for the pole position in the Orwellian race to the bottom.

finger prints at the ward office prints and face scan at the airport a camera on every corner....

I feel safer already knowing that our money is well spent.
