They want people to spend their yen abroad? Keep it in the Japanese economy at this stage. Plus at this moment you would get the least return overseas due to the FX rate.

Xbox tried to launch here for the 1st 3 consoles. Nobody bought them.
the US automotive industry made the same claim here that Japan is anticompetitive, but somehow the German manufacturers sell like hotcakes in Japan. Strange.

Not sure about the sedan driver, but they should really put a centerline in there so that people understand who has the right of way.

Schools, infrastructure and jobs. Those are needed first. The average salary in Japan is about 5M and that figure is inflated by Tokyo salaries.
If you move out of Tokyo, your salary will most likely go down.
Education is best in Tokyo so the kids moving out of Tokyo will have less education and future opportunities
why would one move out of Tokyo for those prospects?

What they don’t get is that people in Japan don’t relocate locally away from their settled home.
many company outside of Tokyo or nearby areas has extreme difficulties.
japanese companies with branch offices send their people there, but their families remain in their settled area, splitting the family.
hence they can incentivize companies to move outside of Tokyo all they want, but those companies will not find willing employees to work there.

unfortunately your math is way off.
1MJPY is 100 bills
10MJPY is 1000 bills
54MJPY is 5400 bills
you can fit that into a large shoulder bag.

In the summer if you park your car in direct Sun light it’ll take no time to heat it to deadly levels. I parked outside like that for an hour the other day, everything inside was baking to the point that I just turned it on got back out and waited for the AC to cool it off.
i had the foresight to remove my family from the car after parking the car though.

Actually 150M yen wouldn’t fit into a backpack. An oversized duffel bag perhaps. It’s also quite heavy.

Seeing as there are dozens of witnesses, video evidence that the entire nation has seen and he confessed, what’s the hold up?

What a moron! That’s a fortune in batteries and horrible for the environment. Who uses phone charger that has disposable batteries?
you can get a great rechargeable phone charger for like 3000 yen.

In most parts of the US, public transport is terrible, hence people need a car. Not everywhere is like Tokyo.

I wore the mask for over 2 years and caught corona regardless. Now it’s time to drop them outside, especially in this heat.

Covid is still a thing?
i used to be very concerned about it until I caught it in the peak. Didn’t even notice I had it.

Spot on antifun.
they should calculate the lost wages of having been able to practice and pay that out to them in damages.

That explains the massive police presence near Akasaka yesterday. I guess they’re practicing already.

That’s a crime, plain and simple.
for 43MJPY I wouldn’t want to be on a wanted list. For $43M, maybe.

Wouldn’t millions of fans owning a football club also be a consortium?
besides the club is seized from Roman - he has no decision in the matter.

The reason the vaccination rates are so low in HK is right there in the article.
they have very strict quarantines and up until now had barely any cases. Hence people saw vaccines as useless, until now.

There appear to be a lot of Tokyo haters here.
name a city that is geared towards to poor. All major cities are more livable for the rich.
for transport and range of cuisine Tokyo is bar none the best.

What a moron. Escape the police and return to the place where they originally found him.

If you get aroused when entering a library, I got a good solution for that. Don’t visit libraries. Read books online and avoid jail time as well as scarring innocent people for life.

Whatever he did, short of trying to kill her or cause other physical harm, she was not justified stabbing him in the HEAD.

That is all well and good. I know plenty of people in their 60s who wish to keep working, but the government needs to force companies to employ them under fair conditions past 60.
Many Japanese companies have a pre-retirement demotion plan for people as young as in their late 40s. No one wants to keep working for 15-20 years in a lesser position with less pay than they are used to.

cant most modern cars be tracked by gps? I have an app for my car that shows me exactly where it is. Simply show the cops and they can track the thieves.
