Posted in: 'Demon Slayer' revenue tops ¥10.75 bil in 10 days, breaking Japan box-office record See in context

I've only seen the TV series and it's okay in my opinion. Nothing to write home about. Just doing well when there's not much else on this year I guess. But it's worth a look.

Posted in: ANA expects record net loss of ¥510 bil in FY2020 See in context

I haven't flown with ANA and never will again following their distasteful advertising campaign towards white people and foreign passengers in general about ten years ago. I think the ads are still on YouTube.

Sadly I agree with Jonathan. This kind of incident is not really shocking or newsworthy in Japan anymore.

I walk past there every other day. I do hope the young lady recovers. Quite traumatic for other pedestrians and witnesses having seen a couple of suicides here in Osaka too. Part of life in Japan though.

There are thousands of Japanese orgy scenes on porn sites and video and DVD.

Or so I've been told.

Agree with R.T.

Death by a thousand cuts for Toshiba. Poor management and governance as well.

Posted in: Heat wave poses challenge to medical system already hit by virus See in context

I love the hot weather!

I dress appropriately, wear a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, avoid being outside when the temperature is at its highest.

I keep my home well air conditioned and UV cut curtains and products.

And I do something rarely seen in public in Japan, I drink water to stay hydrated.

You haven't seen someone around the house for a year so you assume that person must have "gone out" ?

Posted in: Sanitary conditions in my room weren't very good. I'm sorry for causing trouble. See in context

"A man in his 30s, who had been staying at an Osaka hotel for coronavirus patients with mild or no symptoms, after he went home by taxi without permission"

I think that should be the quote of the day!

Mild or no symptoms, which one is it?

Mate just called me from near Shirahama in Wakayama. Roads, roadhouses, restaurants, beaches all look fairly packed.

He said that he'd seen number plates from about a dozen prefectures.

Go To Travel!

Posted in: Naomi Osaka will play in U.S. Open, says management team See in context

Why miss the chance to make 3.85 million dollars (413 million yen) during the pandemic while her fellow countrymen and women are back in Japan struggling with their loss of jobs, decreased salaries, changes in work and family conditions and routines not to mention the virus.

Posted in: Japan confirms 1,512 new coronavirus infections See in context

Similar story to some of you guys here in East Osaka too. Went to a home center and a major electrical store around 1pm today and found carparks and stores full with zero social distancing among shoppers. Quite a few old timers seem to have stopped wearing masks too because, you know, it's "atsui".

Anyway got what I wanted and got out quick while J families just meandered about touching merchandise and trying to placate their bored kids.

Deaths in custody.

You conveniently forgot mention that in that total since 1991 there were 39 deaths in hospital due to car accidents while individuals were awaiting formal driving charges, 31 deaths due to natural causes, 28 suicides, 10 deaths due to justifiable homicide and 146 deaths in the Australian jails due to prisoner on prisoner violence.
