Posted in: 24-year-old man arrested for abusing one-year-old daughter, breaking her leg See in context

Police said the welfare center had contacted them once before about the possibility that the child was being abused at home.

No action taken?

I'd have no problem with this bastard going to jail for the next 20-25 years.

I kind of like seeing children getting to display their art on city streets.

If you've lived in Osaka for any length of time over the past 20 years you would have seen that poster regarding Yuri multiple times at Kobans, subway and train stations.

Yuri's family and supporters have never given up hope and perhaps it's up to all of us to watch out for the kids in our neighborhoods as @proxy experienced.

Great to see especially in the big cities and tourist areas.

There are several foreign convenience workers in my neighborhood including one Nepalese student who is an absolute star. She speaks her native tongue, Japanese, English, and basic Korean and Chinese.

Posted in: Man assaults woman, steals her underwear in Sapporo See in context

What another stupid comment from TokyoLiving. His opinion is of no comfort to the young lady who was probably terrified, traumatized or even possibly injured in this obscene crime.

Their country.

Their culture.

Their rules.

Posted in: Foreign English teachers in Japan pick their favorite Japanese-language phrases See in context

When I used to teach English at Nova many moons ago the popular and favored Japanese expressions to hear were "Hana ga takai" "Kowaii sensei" and "Henna gaijin" Good to see things have changed from the late 80s.

They were doing the same thing in my local park today in Osaka. I thought it was a bit early for May 5th Children's Day but my wife said it's not unusual.

Posted in: Japan's Paris Olympic Games uniforms unveiled See in context

I like the color of the jacket but the uniform as a whole is nothing special. Looks like training/warm up gear from ASICS. Anyway good luck Japan!

Police said Takashita has denied the allegation and quoted him as saying, “I don’t remember doing anything like that.”

Defence rests its case your honor.

Posted in: First foreign-born sumo grand champion Akebono dies at 54 See in context

So shocked and saddened to learn of Akebono's passing. I was lucky enough to see him at the peak of his powers back in the 90s alongside Konishiki and Musashimaru at a Haru Basho in Osaka.

To his many fans, friends and of course his family my deepest condolences.

RIP Yokozuna and one more banzai!

Posted in: New recruits mark 1st day at work across Japan as fiscal 2024 begins See in context

I'd like to wish each and every one of the new JAL employees good luck and every success in their working life. That goes for all the young people across Japan starting work today.

I still remember my first day on the job. Blisters on my heels from the new leather shoes and the feeling of strangulation from wearing a tie all day for the first time.

The 2024 problem?

With no sensible immigration policy these issues have been bubbling away since the 90s.

Posted in: 4 Vietnamese arrested for thefts targeting Uniqlo shops in Japan See in context

Vietnamese people in Japan are fast getting a very bad reputation amongst the local populace and foreign residents alike. I hope these four are prosecuted fully, deported for all time and warnings given to any Vietnamese national who sets foot in this country.
