how about, like, hiring professional translators?

with all the money they throw away every year they surely have the budget.

the problem is that Japan never had a decent opposition that can pull it out of its political misery.

the only chance they had was spoiled by the political exploitation of the 2011 disaster and subsequent use [by both his own party's sleaze-balls and the LDP] of Naoto Kan as a scapegoat.

it really was and still is a disgusting state of affairs.

These are the official figures, updated daily


The same data on the English site are slightly older




You can get ward-specific official data from any ward as well, so I assume other local governments probably have pages for that too.

Posted in: Tokyo named most liveable city in world by Monocle magazine See in context

klausdorthJun So how come that only "Monocle" ranks Tokyo number 1? Mercer's and AEU show another picture, as do many other sites. Something must be wrong here!

they just use different parameters to analyze and rank the data, therefore get different results. [that's why they use different namings for the lists]

I don't think Tokyo is so bad, in fact I am not suprised it made top of the list. of course this is my personal opinion.

Posted in: Remains of fetus found in drainage pipes of Chiba apartment building See in context

maybe she just had a miscarriage, if one intentionally dumps a fetus in a toilet she'd be a total moron to call a plumber afterwards. accusing someone of murder without having enough details is not a very logical thing to do, Jim. plus, overstaying your visa does not necessarily make you a murderer.

Posted in: Why do Japanese people seldom hug friends or family in public? See in context

Japanese don't really do the "skinship" thing. it took a long time just to hold hands in public for couples - which is kind of cute, but a bit childish I guess. More "skinship" please!

Posted in: Why more Japanese are staying home See in context

because traveling from Japan is a total rip off and it's not Bubble Time anymore. a 2-way ticket to any European town costs at least 30% more than if you took off from Europe exactly on the same plane. it's time to put an end to this middle-man mafia mentality.

it is "unique" because it is the first such international event held in Japan, that's what makes it different.

Posted in: World's first 'otaku' summit opens in Japan See in context

Otaku Summit signed the birth of the Inetrnational Otaku Event Association, that aims to bring together Japanese subculture-focused events all over the world, in order to exchange info, knowledge, guests, etc. crossing borders, culture, race, religion, everything. It's a literally historic watershed moment for Japanese subculture.

“We presume that despite the meltdown, the fuel is still in the containment vessel,” "presume" is not a very scientific word, is it?
