Buffett throwing money this way earlier this year was a good confirmation that the future looks healthy here and across Asia in general.

My 7yr old son really wants to go see it but I won't take that risk yet of 2 hours in an enclosed room with a bunch of other people. Hopefully comes out on Amazon Prime or Netflix before the Spring.

Good job Japan, just imagine the boom once a vaccine is readily available worldwide. I'm LONG Japan and Asia in general.

Japanese are resilient and have been through so many crises. I'm happy to be here and even though there will be more hurdles down the road I feel pretty confident this country will be in a better place 6 months to a year from now. 10 years from now that's another debate but short term, I like the odds here and my family are I are happy to stay.

My son liked this series, but still don't see us visiting any theaters to see it yet. Hopefully makes it to streaming services.

Too bad seeing this kind of story but I anticipate more like this coming unfortunately. Hopefully Japan keeps things very strict with regards to drugs, even the soft stuff like cannabis. I'm aware of some health benefits it might have for some but let's just keep all of it out of Japan please. Prefer my child growing up in a country where it's still very taboo and frowned upon, so far that is Japan fortunately.

Posted in: Japan to reopen borders for all foreign visitors with permits to stay in country See in context

I'm supposed to fly back in October, been away from the family since June, I'm excited! I know the restrictions have been tough and debatable whether fair or not but my kid has been in school since May and he and my wife go about their day as normal which is much much better than how it is in the US. I think Japan has done a good job overall during this horrible year. Looking forward to getting back there.

Unfortunately it's not always EAST??? Is it supposed to be EASY maybe? Nobody proof reads anymore I guess. Dangerous neighborhood in Japan, what does that mean, an old man might give me a mean look, LoL? 7 comments here, not bad.

Posted in: Japan's re-entry ban to contain virus unfair, Western business lobbies say See in context

If someone can explain to me this logic please: my Japanese friend, who lives in the US and has been for 5+ years, and I fly from LA to Narita. I am a US citizen but have PR status in Japan and a Japanese wife and child both with Japanese citizenship. My Japanese friend and I arrive at Narita and they tell my friend welcome and please come in but I have to go back to LA. There is no reason at all in this world that you could explain why this is ok. Is he any less likely to get Covid being Japanese, didn't we both just fly from the US???

Posted in: European business lobby calls on Japan to ease travel restrictions See in context

I landed back in the US last week from Japan. My wife and son are still in Japan. I really hope Japan let's me back in at some point this year. Haneda was definitely dead and my flight very much empty. Physically, as of today, I still have a little jet lag but otherwise feeling totally fine. Fingers crossed things improve everywhere so lives can get back to normal.

BINGO! It's that simple really and when your thought process doesn't follow that then you do what YOU want and make that decision regardless of how it may or may not affect others around you, thus being SELFISH.

News headlines of people of authority who are shouted at, spit on, beaten, or even shot because they asked people out in public to put on a mask also confirms my opinion.

Definitely feel safer here where people still follow the rules somewhat.

Can't please everyone unfortunately. Japan could win the Rugby WC and someone will say the grass on the field was too green. Thanks for the option of being able to express my feelings here on this website, but how unfortunate that I can't can't use a different Font style or color, LOL.

How is it that the salaries for ALT teachers hasn't gone up in 10yrs? The salaries you see posted for new jobs are usually 250-300k/month and that was the same as in 2004 when I was in Japan.
