Posted in: Japan to expand language assistance, free Wi-Fi for foreigners See in context

Can we actually get wi-fi that works? I don't think I've been to any shopping area, combini or train station where there's "free" wi-fi, and I can actually use it at a normal speed.

Posted in: Illustrator shows different types of perverts encountered on Japanese trains See in context

You guys should remember that there are also some chijo(痴女) who are female gropers. Although they are rare, surely exist!

> Which train lines have men experienced women groping them? Times? Stations?

Asking for a friend...

Good question. I would also like to know, but asking for myself.

I will document their actions, free of charge for the public. You are welcome.

It took 6 months to arrest this individual?

I hope this fool goes away for a long, long time. I doubt anyone would miss his presence.

It isn’t just men. I once had a woman who was behind me, press one breast against my back and then the other - repeatedly until I was able to move to get off the train. It was creepy.

Oh no, you poor thing. let me start a gofundme to help you with the suffering. I don't know what I would do if this happened.

Maybe turn around?

IDK who to be more disgusted at here.

The pathetic mother and her boyfriend


the useless officials that are supposedly there to help children who are being abused, but can't really do their job properly.

Either way, it is sad for the future of Japan.

Posted in: 'Terrace House' comedian Ryota Yamasato marries actress Yu Aoi See in context

The marriage announcement came as a surprise to many, with morning TV shows discussing the topic and Yamasato’s comedy friends reminding everyone that he once topped Yoshimoto Kogyo’s “most unattractive person in Japan” poll for three consecutive years back in 2006.

True. But Yu Aoi isn't really the most attractive either. I guess both just enjoy each other's company, based on things other than superficial matters? Not everything is a beauty contest.

Now, if he were marrying Aoi Sora on the other hand...................

How do these people live with themselves?

Before you think about wrapping up a baby like that (which should be never,) how about you tell "him" to wrap it up first?

Then this wouldn't be an issue in the first place. And by the way, get a job...............oh wait, I guess you can't now.

The beating of a dead horse continues.

We get it, the elderly shouldn't be driving.

None of this matters until the laws change, and police actually enforce such laws.

Posted in: Yoshinoya releases new line of canned, ready-to-eat beef bowls See in context

Maybe my math is off, but at 4800 yen per 6 pack of cans, isn't that like double the price of a regular sized beef bowl (which also appears to be double in size) in a regular store?

Posted in: Nintendo takes Mario Kart company to court for 2nd time and wins yet again See in context

Forget the Nintendo and Legal ramifications, how did the company last so long with their clearly non-street legal vehicles operating on busy roads? It should have been shut down long before Nintendo even stepped in by Tokyo officials. I'm surprised no one got killed on those things.

Posted in: Schoolgirls chase suspected train groper and get timely assist from tripper See in context

Living in Tokyo, the problem I see is that by and large middle aged Japanese men do not act as role models in society. They try to get some position and take advantage of it. I saw a middle aged JP businessman push junior high boys hard as they slightly crept over the line coming down the platform stairs. I wanted to grab his heel and throw his arse down the stairs.

That's because they are "good" at attacking people that they know they can handle. Younger, smaller, or weaker than they are. If they come face to face with some one of equal ability or size, they won't even make an attempt. They'll just turn the other way.

A step in the right direction.

I want to work in an office with a lot of trees. A jungle motif if you will. Perhaps see a few future governors. Maybe work with a couple of aliens. I have definitely got to sit next to Dillion. Then at the end of the day, we all go to the rooftop and yell:

It's called found money.

Step up yo game if you gonna rip people off and try to floss. Learn how to be cultured if want the finer things in life. If not, you're gonna end up exactly where you belong, behind bars.

Hopefully someone in the joint teaches this fool how to dress appropriately.

Amusing, all these thumbs down for comments that talk negatively about the killer. Sad.

Honestly I hope the families of the murdered victims can some how find some eventual peace from all of this. My heart goes out to those people.

PLEASE do not hurt innocent children. If you are that weak to handle daily life, blame yourself, not others around you. ESPECIALLY innocent children who are nothing but positive influences.

Killer, I hope you suffered badly before your demise.........

Posted in: Japan to stop labeling people unmarried at 50 as 'lifelong singles' See in context

The government will no longer use the term "lifelong singles" as a label for people who have not married by age 50

How about the government just stop, all of this.

And then do some actual work to help the country out?

Better yet, how about we start labeling the government?

We shall call them the "lifelong useless."

Day 2: 8 AM - Leave hotel

Posted in: Abe orders measures to secure road safety for preschool children See in context

Ooooh, solve a problem after the tragedy. Talk about a usual concept in Japan....... HEY! WAKE UP!! Take protective measures BEFORE stuff happens.

Yes, guardrails along roads is a start as are automatic break systems in cars. So how about day 2?

Maybe actually have the police patrol the streets and actually make arrests or give citations to people that you know, break traffic laws? And not for a "campaign temporary basis," EVERY DAY!!!! Possibly be more harsh on license renewal and testing laws? Perhaps actually creating safe sidewalks or paths for pedestrians, especially around school zones?

This list can go on and on and on and on..............

My view is to block or delete them. I got work and real life to deal with. If you have enough free time to air your hate on social media, time to get a second job.
