Another government propaganda puff piece.

Think that is a microcosm of the general malaise that has fallen on Japan.

RIP, young man.

Didn't know Vancouver was like that.

Posted in: Japan enacts childcare law to tackle declining birthrate See in context

The clueless LDP enacts another law where they take even more money from the voters in their hope that it promotes childbirth. Genius!

A shame.

But it is time for the next generation to finally step in.

Cursory at best.

Posted in: Ohtani's ex-interpreter pleads guilty in sports betting case See in context

One still has to question how this interpreter managed to get access to 17 million dollars without Ohtani and or others not noticing sooner.

Why was the sentence suspended?

Probably paid a lot of cash to the family.

Big Brother is rapidly becoming a reality. What a visionary George Orwell was.

Mentally fragile.

Posted in: Japan's 2023 net external assets hit record ¥471 tril on weak yen See in context

Does this mean we don't need to pay tax, pension or health insurance anymore or have the LDP found other ways to squander such a fortune?

Posted in: When I saw the name tag ‘Wife of Fumio Kishida,’ I thought what is going on with Japanese society’s awareness of human rights? Didn’t anyone think something was wrong while preparing for the garden party? See in context

And she probably had to help with the washing-up after the party as well. Japan hasn't changed much since the Jomon period when it comes to women's rights.


Great post.

The plight of the elderly is not all the government's fault.

Where's the government gonna get the money from to improve services to the elderly at a time when Japan is already saddled with massive debt? 

A whole generation didn't have enough children to invest in the future and is now paying the price.

Japan must reproduce or continue to pay the consequences.

It is the elderly's children who didn't have kids.

J-Pop as always sounded like AI music to me.

It always amazed me how Kewell got this job. His CV managing in the UK is one of consistent failure right down to managing semi-professional as he went from smaller club to smaller club who took a chance on him. 

He failed at literally every club he managed and was fired at all of them. Didn't Yokohama do their homework?

Hired for his name.

Posted in: Tokyo Gov Koike plans to run for third term: source See in context

Another dead loss.

Often went missing during the pandemic and only popped up when the Olympics started.

Same old, same old as usual in Japan.

The same old useless faces getting the top jobs for their name not substance.

Posted in: I’m so angry that I want to punch the thieves if they come here again. But more than that, I want the trees returned unharmed because bonsai is a work of art that takes time. See in context

How times have changed.

I remember when unscrupulous pet breeders from Japan went overseas to third world countries to pillage exotic pets to sell back in Japan.
