Sign of the times I guess. I swear I see more people and couples in my local park with dogs rather than kids nowadays. And some with two or three pooches.

Most syphilis cases in Japan the world are connected to those working as and/or frequenting sex workers at home and abroad.

Just regarding the number of refugees accepted by Japan in 2022. I detail an earlier story from JT this year..

"Last year, Japan awarded a record 202 people refugee status and had a 2 percent refugee application approval rate.

This year, the country has granted more people refugee status than usual. In July, 114 Afghans who were local employees of the Japan International Cooperation Agency, as well as their family members, were recognized as refugees."


"Between 2001 and 2020, Japan approved an average of less than 1 percent of applications"

Excellent post ukguyjp.

I have lived in Japan near 30 years at four different locations and have introduced myself or greeted my closet neighbors when moving in wherever possible but new Japanese neighbors have NEVER done what the article says when they've arrived in the neighborhood.

It doesn't get talked about much in the local media but Sakai has its fair share of lunatics.

"A test tube labelled "Bird Flu," eggs and a piece of paper in the colors of the Japanese national flag are seen in this picture".

Are you implying it's dangerous to eat Japanese eggs?

Yes it's wonderful but I've got to be honest. I'm kind of over illumination sights and it's only November.

Excellent post GBR48. I heard about that situation in the UK too.

In Australia self serve supermarkets and stores are moaning about the increase in shoplifting since the introduction of such systems. They lose more in stock in a week than what they would pay staff to serve and watch customers. Duh!

RIP young man. What an awful way to end your life.

This organization needs to be dissolved. But sadly this is Japan and we will look the other way and say as Takuya Kimura says on behalf of Smile Up "Show must go on"

I know it's all very pretty and festive or maybe I'm just getting old and crusty but I'm kind of over the done to death multitude of illumination locations around Japan.

I am relieved the police were able to detain and arrest this man but they fired a shot into the air prior to shooting him. It's an action I've only seen bank robbers do in the movies.

RIP young lady.

May those who participated in the bullying and dehuminization of her forever live with the burden of knowing how they contributed to her tragic passing.

Sometimes it seems the more things change in Japan the more they stay the same.

@Redemption spot on. The writer fails to mention that many landlords refuse to lease properties to foreigners point blank. It's been this way for decades.

Posted in: The mayor of Tokyo's Shibuya Ward has asked Halloween revelers not to come to the scramble crossing and its vicinity. Do you think most people will heed his request and crowds will be much less than pre-corona years? See in context

Disappointing but necessary I suppose given the inappropriate nature of Halloween. The mayor must be tempted to call in the SDF as reinforcement. The statue of Hachiko should have been transferred to another location and close the train and subway stations and businesses tomorrow for 24 hours. Stay safe Shibuya and look after each other.

Posted in: Security tight for Halloween in Shibuya See in context

This issue is truly gripping the nation. Mayor Hasebe must now be surely tempted to request the SDF to assist with arrests and detainment. Why wasn't the statue of Hachiko removed and transferred to a safe location before the expected trouble and violence occurs?

If the Hanshin Tigers win the Japan Baseball Series in the coming week Osaka peeps will knock Halloween celebrations off the calendar! Game one tonight.

In the mean time Mayor Hasebe could always request the SDF to assist with arresting and detaining Halloween revellers.
