Posted in: After long battle, karate gets long-awaited chance on Olympic stage See in context

Too many styles of karate , each with its own philosophy. I studied wado Ryu for years...and when I did have a fight, unfortunately, it was absolutely useless. Switched to boxing....much more effective. Kata is no more a sport than synchronized swimming. Not going to be in the next Olympics, thank God. Mma is a thousand times more deserving an Olympic spot.

Obesity is a choice. You choose what to put in your mouth. Fat is fun,it's ok to be fat....well corona had shown us that it isn't. We are moving towards a WALL-E world. Even in Japan the number of overweight people is increasing dramatically.

Who? Well, let's hope that if you are a ' real ' expat sent here due to some skill you have, it is a smidgen deeper than your knowledge of soundtracks. Alongside Hans Zimmer, Danny elfman is one of the most influential, prolific composers in contemporary cinema.

I absolutely hated Spandau ballet,Duran Duran, etc the 80s and was a huge the jam, nine below zero, mod revival fan . But...Duran Duran and Spandau ballet were actually bloody good in retrospect. Very catchy , excellent production. Culture club.... Very mediocre, even now. Do you really want to hurt me sounded like a complete copy of a ken boothe track.

Posted in: Man arrested after pushing over woman and her 2 children on bicycle See in context


It may we'll have been intentional. I have problem with that. The problem is here that JT have already decided it was intentional without the alleged crime being proven. It is mere accusation at the moment. He probably did push her but journalism is supposed to tell the facts, not make them up.

Yes it is illegal, anywhere in Japan. Everyone does it, even the cops, but it is illegal

Riding on the sidewalk in Japan is illegal under Japanese road traffic law. How do I know? Well , I took my big bike license and for some reason, it came up in one of the lectures we had to take about general road rules.

It is illegal. Just because you didn't know doesn't make it legal. Ever heard the term ' ignorance is no excuse' ?

Bad journalism Jt .... Shouldn't it be

' man arrested after being accused of pushing over a cyclist , apparently riding illegally on the sidewalk'


He has denied the allegations which have not been proved against him and it does appear she was riding illegally on the sidewalk.

So's very sad however that your were correct comments get downvotes. He was stealing. Stealing electricity, pure and simple. I own a company and we have electric outlets outside our offices . If someone started using them without my consent, that is stealing and I expect the police to arrest them , not deal with him like they are social workers.

I went to the doctor with a ridiculous sore throat and muscle pains. Absolutely no way was he going to send me for a pcr test. Gave me some antibiotics ( er, even if it's not corona but viral, those wont work ) and some other stuff and sent me packing. The sore throat continued for 2 weeks! No idea if it corona or not and I will never know!

Naomi-chan is under no obligation to talk to the vulture media who are always attacking her.

Absolute rubbish. Your argument is a watertight as a storage tank at number 3 reactor, Fukushima.

The vulture media as you call also broadcast her matches , wins , commercials she is in, product endorsements etc

Without the vulture media, she would not be known. She is happy to have her matches on tv along with her tv commercials, adverts in magazines bringing in tons of cash etc .. but she won't talk to them????

Posted in: Immigration bureau sued for locking up 17 foreigners in small room See in context

I am missing something or were they detained for breaking laws regarding visas or were they in the detention facility because it was cheaper than a hotel? If you break a country's law, don't complain about the consequences, however harsh you may find them especially if you went to that country voluntarily. If can't do the time, don't do the crime. If this were people with Japanese citizenship, then maybe their grievances are legitimate. These people were here it seems illegally.

Why is the article referring to this person as 'her'.? If the person has male chromosomes, then he is still male. You can buy a Nissan march and put a Ferrari body kit on it. Its still a Nissan march.

@tokyo joe

You are so correct. In addition, he has the right to free speech as guaranteed in the Japanese constitution. If he expresses his views and is then elected, he has the support of his constituents. Whether people like it or not is not of his concern. If people don't like it, then become Japanese, acquire the right to vote and then vote for someone who expresses your concerns. If you don't want to do that, well, there are still planes leaving Japan. No one is forcing you to stay.
