TokyoLiving predictably at it again. Judgement clouded by his open hatred for the USA and its people. These posts along with the other ones deleted earlier should be removed by the moderators.

Posted in: 72% of foreigners in survey say they’ve been disappointed by bad breath in Japan See in context

Add me to the yes vote. Some people have dreadful breath here in Japan.

“Japanese people are also conscious about not opening their mouths very wide when they laugh, because they think it’s impolite. So there’s less pressure to take care of your breath, and so attitudes about oral hygiene can become lax.”

What a ridiculous statement.

Posted in: Japan's foreign worker population hits record 1.82 million See in context

In my neighborhood (Osaka suburbs) the locals are having a really hard time trying to get staff. Some businesses have signs up permanently now looking for staff and supermarkets and convenience stores are noticeably undermanned even on weekends. I think I mentioned before the local beef bowl restaurant closes some overnight hours as they have no staff despite being advertised as a 24 hour business. They had a message on their stating this.

Old, empty, dilapidated houses are scattered throughout my neighborhood in east Osaka. And there are two three empty apartment/danchi type buildings that I know of in addition to the dozens of vacant apartments for rent.

Posted in: Suicides in Japan increase in 2022; 1st rise among men in 13 years See in context

I know I've said this before but when these numbers get posted annually but the suicide number is probably higher when you figure in the number of people who just "go missing" every year. A police chief once told me about this.
