Yubaru the Swallows are a pro team, your opinion on that point…why even bother picking it?

And the point isnt that its beyond salvaging.

Other developers want to turn it into a tightly packed Japanese city block to make them richer but the people think its beautiful. If the other old buildings and temples and landmarks get a fat check to upkeep it, why not this?

It may be cheaper than tearing it up and building 2 glass skyscrapers and also cutting down trees

I’m sure that with it being a local corruption case, we can get a few bows in, send none of the big boys to jail, have something else come into play as a distraction, and mission accomplished.

I do not think that when I see someone jacked. Having spent the majority of my life in gyms and doing sports, he simply looks unnatural to me.

He also has a big fat gut and yet veins popping out his huge arms and the classic roid face. It changes how ur face looks sometimes.

Not at all man.

He was skinny in his 20s and 30s.

He looks like he’s on roids now, and thats wuite obvious.

A sobering reminder of the times we live in.

Those aren’t the sentiments of their age groups in the past at all.

Is this even journalism?

It seems like people are just invented and given “comments” to make the reader feel like they have heard all sides.

The worried student, the stressed out resteraunt manager, the teacher who can no longer “protect her students”.

Really now?

I think us in Japan are well aware that Japan is a vassal of the USA and does what its tood to reap the benefits.

Its a rich mostly free (for the peoples) US controlled Ally. But atm Japan has to be.

We literally have to re arm via and house and feed the US army.

In life, in justice, and in Karma you should watch your deeds and words.

Former President Medvedev one may argue is in a position where he in a year or two is more likely to be in danger.

Wonder why the government isn’t concentrating fully on the elderly and those with medical conditions at this point.

I work in education and have seen personally hundreds get infected, but in Japan its 99% the elderly and ill that die.

Most others are good after a week, vaxxed or not.

Actually I dont mind Chinese coming here and supporting my economy and then going back home.

If anything they will realize that things aren’t as they have been brainwashed to think.

With all due respect, money is relative.

Some people buy things because whats nothing to them, is a lot or a waste to another. Buy Rolex if you please.

Posted in: Volunteers taking outsized role in Japanese language support See in context

They USE and depend on volunteers because they have no program.

Then they complain about the program set up and run by volunteers? There should be nothing but thanks for them, and I think, utilization of their skill.

Posted in: Volunteers taking outsized role in Japanese language support See in context

In this article they kind of bad mouth the volunteers. They are the best as they are carrying (as the complaining teacher said) most of the work load, and for free.

The problem is that these people aren’t being compensated and actively recruited to help even more.

Since theres not a lot of money to be made here it wont get support

Zoroto Kei cars do cost less, but more importantly cost far less in annual fees and taxes.

They are very dangerous in an accident agreed.

As a Japanese I am well aware that Japan has won and lost wars.

Assuming Russia is even able to help China besides Nukes.

They should practice I guess.

They haven’t ever won any wars.

Unfortunately “Hong Kong” is now the CCP controlled dictatorship.

Good manners and morals?

I dont think this guy gets to define morality.

If they are har they can be used to abduct Japanese citizens as well.

The government here should check into them thouroughly as they are the chief enemy of our nation atm.

Okinawa is physically closer to China than Japan in some ways. China threatening those around them is nothing new.

Posted in: 'Work without limits': Japan's teachers battle for change See in context

The “overtime work” term is ridiculous to me.

It’s not overtime as that would never happen here because people would be making incredible amounts of overtime pay now too!

Here it’s just free labor and it should be strictly disallowed.

If you are actually making more money, I think a lot of people would work more hours, and be happier about it.

To be prevent the spread of coronavirus?

But the only reason Japan has the highest rates is because we are such responsible testers and take records correctly, unlike other places…

This is what I’ve been hearing from everyone all month lol
