Posted in: What do you think of the level of service in shops, restaurants, airlines, banks, offices and so on in Japan? See in context

Generally I think it is very good and shop clerks are trained to a high standard, very helpful, enthusiastic andd knowlegeble about the products. It is a world away from the UK where it has become the norm for the person serving you to continue talking (read chatting) to their colleague, hold out their hand for the cash and not utter a word of thanks let alone make eye contact with you. I hate being made to feel like a shop clerk is doing ME a favour by buying something from them. Shopping in Japan is a treat. Also reading about the assistants working 15 , 16 hours a day and having to eat their lunch in the toilets and STILL giving you service with a smile. I cant complain and I have actually come to accept that you don't "do" returns in Japan - just not worth the hassle.

Why is the monkey sharing a cage with the pig? Not an expert on animal husbandry but this just seems so random. Or is the monkey wild and can jump in and out of the enclosure?

Posted in: Gov't kept silent on worst-case scenario at height of nuclear crisis See in context

Of course they kept quiet. As stated in the aarticle it would be impossible to evacuate those areas without causing more problems through panic.

My family considered this exact event in the days following the disaster. We decided that the goverment was not going to have our personal interests at heart and would certainly not tell us of any impending danger so we decided that myself and 6 month old child would leave the country.

Have to say we made the right decision for us. In hindsight no, there was "no immediate danger" but this does go to show that if there was we would be among the last to know.

Posted in: How foreigners’ daily lives change when they live in Japan See in context

I lost my sense of humor, became perverted, I sleep in trains, became addicted to vending machines, stopped going for a walk to smoke. I have become serious about everything. (Dutchman)

Lol. Think that one got in there by mistake - surprised JT hasnt censored it for Japan bashing to be honest,

Posted in: Shangri-La joins fight against shark fin soup See in context

Saw a programme which followed some fishermen (illegally) fishing for sharks. They machete off the fin and throw the still alive creature back into the sea to bleed to death. Absolutely barbaric. Well done Shangri La.

Sounds really good. I miss lamb a lot when i live in Japan. There used to be a great place in Nakameguro. Thankfully I've never had to eat mutton - but lamb certainly doesn't smell (more than any other cooked meat).

It reminds me of those subway posters. "Do it at home" :D (I thought it was only foriegners who behaved with such disrespect in guest countries..tsk tsk) I honestly hope he gets an example made of him. No one deserves to be assaulted like that by a drunken old idiot.

International marriage is complicated enough without throwing lesbians/gays into the mix. It's not at all surprising that her visa was denied and i'm surprised she is surprised..if you see what i mean..

Posted in: Newborn girl left at Chiba nursery See in context

Sorry to say but I agree with Warner. Yes, thank God she didn't hurt or kill the baby but to say, "I want to come take it back"? So when it's all grown up and not crying, puking, crapping you want to come take it back after it's been stuck in the system for how many years, put in homes and moved from one place to the next. Sure they are going to be pleased to see Mummy after that.

This baby was also born 10 days ago. I don't believe for a minute that no-one knows who the mother is. She went through 9 months of pregnancy (agreed some women don't show) gave birth without medical assistance(?) and "looked after" the baby for well over a week. No grandparents, husband/boyfriend/, friends, neighbours? I don't believe it.

Posted in: Joe Odagiri apologizes for signing name 'Kumi Koda' as autograph for fan See in context

Sorry, don't understand this at all. There is no mention whatsoever in the article about who this kumi koda is and why writing her name is offensive?

Personally don't read the Japanese equivalent of "heat"magazine so a little background might be helpful. Sloppy journalism again - even if the subject matter is drivel.

Posted in: 25 Rottweilers maul Czech woman to death See in context

25 rotties is not hoarding, people - it's dog fighting. Sounds like an horrific way to go, but I can't feel much sympathy to someone making money out of the suffering of animals. The dogs will all be destroyed - you can't rehome fighting dogs.

Posted in: In general, what do you think of the quality of pizzas in Japan? And what do you think is the secret to making a great pizza? See in context

I think the secret to making a great pizza is make it as far away from Japan as possible. The absolute worst food produced in Japan is pizza - soggy, swimming in oil and bizarre bits of fish and mayonnaise and a multitude of other monstrosities adorning them.

The findings will further worry nervous consumers, already fretting over the safety of domestic produce, despite its previous solid reputation.

Oh really? I didn't need to get my geiger counters out at the end of March to realise this..they only just figured it out? WOW.

Posted in: Book by killer of British woman to become film See in context

What Nicky said.

I agree Wontond, there shouldn't be censorship for the director. If he made an unbiased account of the case then that would be fine, but he isn't, he is using an account compiled entirely by the sicko murdering scum that killled an innocent woman, who now by the way, has some crazy Japanese woman cult following and is IN NO DOUBT profiteering from this whole thing. It is a disgrace. And no Afterthequake..if a foreigner was murdered in Britain, the accused would certainly not be allowed to make a film about it and revel in his fame which this piece of crap is now being allowed to do and enjoy...

This "Dean Fujioka" should be ashamed of himself.

Posted in: Man arrested for abuse after breaking 6-month-old baby's leg See in context

Oh..I failed to read the final paragraph. Apparently it's happened before - makes it even worse. What is the point of anything being reported to these authorities when nothing actually gets done about these abusers?!

Posted in: Man arrested for abuse after breaking 6-month-old baby's leg See in context

This story makes me feel sick. Poor baby - what a cruel and disgusting thing to do to your own child. The use of the word "stomp" is pretty horrendous really..that sort of injury seems like it won't heal well on a tiny baby and he could have a permanent disability.

We can't tell from the article if the mother was there at the time or if in fact she was aware of how the baby's leg got broken but she should also be arrested if it turns out she knew her sicko husband was responsible and said nothing.

I would really like a follow-up on this story but these abuse cases never seem to get followed up on this site.

Posted in: Hyogo teen accused of stabbing 18-year-old boy See in context

I don't dispute it was premeditated Netninja but I gave you a "bad" because there is no way she will be tried as an adult, just as 17, 18, 19 year old "boys" are not tried as adults either in this country. Don't know why you hate women so much? Your posts sure seem to point that way.

Japan must not fall into the foreign commercialism

Sorry, but it is a bit too late for that. My Japanese friends get excited about Christmas at the beginning of October. Japan's "celebration" begins WAY before it does in my "Christian" country.

It's just an accident..can't even see why this has made the news. JT trying to get people outraged over nothing as usual I see. I'm sorry for the little boy. Perhaps his parents shouldn't have let him on the trampoline but we can't wrap our kids in cotton wool forever.

Posted in: Taking it easy See in context

Ginza is not the best place to shop in Japan. I like shopping in Yokohama> really depends what you want to buy doesn't it? If you're after a Gucci handbag Yokohama might not be so great?

I used to get my hair done in Ginza, they were amazing! I also like the days they closed the roads, nice to enjoy shopping in Tokyo with a little more space than i'm used to (Shinjuku) or getting home at the end of the day covered in a film of yuck (Shibuya).

That family looks like they are having a good day :)
