Posted in: How do you feel when you speak fluent or reasonably good Japanese to a Japanese person and they insist on answering you in English? See in context

Angers me, less now but depends on the person and day. I have taken the time and effort AND courage to speak in Japanese but English comes back, blood boils. Of course the same could be said about the Japanese who reply in English but at least show manners to answer in Japanese, if we hit a roadblock in the conversation and feel you can continue in English then do so.

Posted in: Japan's dated, smoky cafes unfazed by Starbucks success See in context

The only reason I go to Starbucks is because its on my way home, can comfortable use my laptop and its kinda cheap but it is bad coffee. But coffee at smaller shops is always better including those smokey old kissatens. Coffee here will never be as good as back home.

OMG... Im kinda in shock. Well done to them. 本当にお疲れ様 to the workers on the front lines... not execs. I guess the new secrecy law should be renamed the "Only when we have good news, we tell you" law :)

Question: If the train was moving how did he get out of the train? Trains have an amazing technology called DOORS, if they are closed you cant get out. He climbed out a window???

Posted in: Woman arrested for calling 110 more than 900 times in 14 hours See in context

Her phone should be permanently restricted from being able to call 119 again. Have a real emergency? Too bad, maybe there were real emergencies in the 900 times she called before but they couldnt get through because of her. Or if she has a real emergency, hang up on her 900 times then take her call.

Aren't people jumping the gun on this? Sega had multiple failed consoles before becoming a third party developer. In case people forgot, the Wii won the last generation EASILY!! Relax people.

If there was a commercial overseas of westerners making fun of Japan with something like the common small eyes stereotype then there would be an outcry.. this should be no different.
