Well. In THAT case, you don't even need to teach English anymore. Robots will do everything for us anyway. By the time these kids grow up, they'll already have realized that they don't need a robot. This app will be installed on their phones or watches for free. Who needs language now?

Sounds complicated.....

All I know, is that other than milk and soy milk, there are no drinks that fall under the "necessary daily items" list in my books.

Water comes out of a tap and is vrry drinkable here. If you want, go ahead and buy bottled, but that's a luxury and should be taxed fully

Posted in: Do you think Japan is the sort of tourism destination that most people would only come to once, or is it a repeat destination? See in context

@seanwd20

Thailand has some great places. It sounds like you're talking about Bangkok and more specifically, just the tourist area. What I like about Thailand is that if you're willing to take a (comfortable) bus, you can make it whatever kind of trip you want.

Japan is a nice place, but not so simple. You'll find similar food, attractions and tourism style almost everywhere

Its a repeat destination. But two or three times is enough if you want to see beach, temples and mountains. Okinawa, hokkaido and mainland. But it's not one of those places people would return to over and over again unless you've dreamed about Japan your whole life and have a huge list to check out.

If japan was a bit more creative with their tourism, and also made it a bit easier for people to enjoy themselves (i.e.: better overnight transport) it would be a much bigger hit.

@Cleo

The point is not, not having them in a box. It's getting them to put loose shoes in a bag together with a clothing item

Want to have some fun? Try buying bras or underwear and refuse a bag. That's a good one. Never gets old. If you don't have that opportunity, buy shoes without a box and ask them to put all your shopping in one bag!

Great! I can finally turn these into positive memories!

@maybeperhapsyes

If you were so responsible, you'd use a fabric bags or bring back your plastic shopping bags to use.

By the way, good on you for recycling, but I recently found out Japan used to send out their plastics to china who has recently refused to accept it. Now it gets sent out to various other southeast asian countries. I wonder what they do to it. Burn it? As for PET bottles, no one wants them, and they are just piling up in Japan. Like radiation waste, they have no solution.

Think twice before using plastic everyone! I use it of course, because it IS very convenient, but please be reasonable!

MSDF) needs more women because falling birth rates mean it has too few men to crew warships in home waters or on helicopter carriers 

Although i realize this is a dream come true for some, and I applaud women being treated equally to men, I find this to be a very unfair statement. Women have always been let down and left out, but only now that desperation sets in do they decide to give women a fair chance! I'm not only talking about he MSDF

Long flights are underrated.

There is nothing worse than a short flight. Listen to the mandatory safety measures-choose a movie-interrupt it for meal service-gulp it down before they rush your garbage away-continue your movie-stop your movie RIGHT before the end for landing and get kicked off the plane before you could have a small nap.

I'd much rather have a long flight. Then I can live out my fantasy of ticking off a list of relaxation items!

We check on the children every 15 minutes, but this time it turned into 30. That 30-minute gap is inexcusable. We are very sorry.”

Absolutely unforgivable! Every 15 minutes?

Don't you "professionals" know that an infant should never be left unattended?!?

Japan needs a better maternity leave system then this wouldn't even be an issue. No wonder there aren't enough kids and female employees!

In Japan, you really only have 3 choices as a woman:

1-career and no kids

2-career and poor parenting

3-good parenting and no career

I'd like an update on the tsukiji rat evacuation prevention plan. Now THAT was news!

On another note:

In 2016, toxic substances were found in soil and groundwater at Toyosu, once home to a gas plant.

However, in July, Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike declared the new site safe after experts signed off on additional clean-up measures.

I wonder how much money was passed under the table for that one!

Ridiculous! Why would anyone ever hire someone who cannot think for themselves and is a follower of the mainstream.

I really like japan until it comes to anything work related. And that's why we're leaving Japan before we would have to use daycare!!!!!

Posted in: What do you think of the quality of waiters in Japanese restaurants? See in context

I agree with Reckless. It's all great until you have a foo allergy. The waiters often have absolutely no clue as to what their customers are ingesting, and the "chefs" are often in the same boat. The chef at the restaurant at my own job doesn't even know where miso is used and tried to have a heated debate with me until I blew him off and told him to just read the labels!

I cannot believe Japan doesn't have huge problems with people dying of allergies in restaurants. The lack of understanding of allergies is appalling in Japan. If I had an anaphylactic allergy, I'd escape this place ASAP

@disillusioned

While it's a sad and unfortunate event, and I DO feel for the family, I still do not agree that everything should have a gate, barrier and lock on it! It never ends! Each station should have a platform gate, each railroad crossing, a signal and gate... do you have any idea how many there are in all of Japan? It's an incredible number!

If they published that they'd start that as a project tomorrow, and published the total cost, you'd all forget these sad stories and start whining about your tax dollars
