I hope it is all no smoking now.

Last few times the smokers were 1 meter away from our table. Yuk.

Posted in: Seven & i begins donation of unexpired food items to needy families See in context

Seven and i at their Ito Yokada supermarkets employ many single mothers on the bare minimum wage part time contracts.

No hand outs or staff discounts for these unfortunate ladies though.

Charity should begin at home.

Posted in: Dentsu chief admits illegal labor practice in trial over employee's suicide See in context

Back in 2003 Dentsu was our ad agency for a luxury UK brand.

It was not uncommon for the Dentsu reps to turn up for morning meetings having not slept.

They could not concentrate and the presentations were awful.

We stopped using them when on another occasion one of them turned and had severe flu.

2 of us caught it and so bad it was, we ended up in hospital on intravenous drips.

Posted in: Police report over 30,000 children abused in 1st half of 2017 See in context

This is deplorable. My home town had a population of 30,000!

The longer you stay here and scratch the surface, the darker it gets.

18 years for me. Japan is far from being the kind, gentle and polite place it portrays to the outside world.

Posted in: Policeman indicted for killing wife to be charged with murder of his two children as well See in context

Another policeman caught after a despicable act.

He will hang for this after conviction and hopefully suffer many many long years on death row until without notice, cell door will open and he will meet his fate.

RIP mother and kids.

So lets face it, some Japanese can be very cruel people behind the veil, or mask they hide.

The more you scratch the surface here, the more disdain you will discover.

Posted in: Abe sends ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine for war dead See in context

Seems like they never let the dead rest in Japan!

War dead or anyone else.

I cannot remember how many memorials I have attended for my father in law.

The 3 year do is after one year, 5 year after 2 years - I never understood it thank when he was alive.

Posted in: Japan's summer holiday exodus gets into full swing See in context

I really hate this time of year.

All travel, hotels are double price. Long tail backs on highways.

Why everyone has to go away at the same time?

Assume = Ass out of U and Me.

I think they used Booking.Com or similar and the card number given online to confirm the booking. On check out they were stuffed.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. consider Osprey night-flight training in Hokkaido See in context

A few more crashes on the horizon if they let Japanese fly them.

Apart from language issues, ask any western pilot what it is like to fly with Japanese, a nightmare.

Another nail in the coffin Abe san.

Who next I wonder?Abe?

Posted in: Inada resigns; Defense Ministry probe denies her role in data coverup See in context

I always knew the South Sudan jaunt would end in tears.

A nation that has no experience of modern warfare for over 70 years is wholly unprepared for the nasty hostile environment which exists there.

These guys have been shooting blanks in Hokkaido forests for training.

When they were in Iraq on a humanitarian mission the Dutch and Brits were protecting them.

Boris when feel how hot it is in Japan at this time of year.

It gets hotter in August when the 2020 Olympics will be help.

I hope he agrees that hosting the games at this time of year is going to be hell for the athletes and visitors alike. Should have chosen October like in 1964.

The police can keep you for 23 days for any offense without charge.. You just have to focus on the 23 days and keep your mouth shut. Easy really, if you are strong enough. Most Japanese are not so break and try to top themselves.
