Another day, another pervert in Japan.

Yes, yet another one.

Yet no one pauses to ask how this perverted mindset takes root and develops in Japanese young men.

Sir, the way it takes root in Japanese young men is exactly the way it would take root in your and any other of uour countrymen’s minds as well.

1.6 million with no apology or admission of guilt is a slap in the face!

Thats literally peanuts for a life.

Fighto

I know of people who committed crimes and did not lose their PR and also likewise, those who did.

I think it takes a lot to overturn PR as some have family and new lives here, but it is a warning of intent from the government.

There are many foreigners now staffing the convinience stores all over Osaka. I appreciate them, they are obviously needed.

I don’t expect them to be exactly the same as Japanese, and they usually speak it well. Why the negativity?

I am aware of the rules and threshholds man.

We hire accountants here and back in the states too annually and its a pain.

Whats ur point?

Sounds fair.

My wife is American and is double taxed by the States and us here.

Deliberate tax evasion is illegal and u fair to those who pay, so whats the problem?

Posted in: Dying salmon trouble Norway's vast fish-farm industry See in context

I avoid farmed fish whenever I can.

Infortunately thats pretty much all the salmon here. Amberjack and shrimp are usually sold farmed here in Osaka as well.

A lot of healthy things are now actually full of chemicals and are probably bad for you

Posted in: Japanese opt for short, cheap overseas trips for Golden Week holidays See in context

I think the situation is different for everyone.

If you make in the 300s a month and have regular expenses you cannot save much and that has been made even less in the last few years.

I’ve never liked getting ripped off during GW personally regardless of my income at the time. In a week my friend will be traveling for about 1/ 3 of the cost of now.

As someone who occasionally identifies as a bear (while hiking) I like your idea.

A BBQ in the woods could complete the vice and the versa as well.

Posted in: Inflation dents budgets for cherry blossom viewing in Japan See in context

You can go for a walk, take a train or other transport, head out to the mountains at any time, and see cherry blossoms at no cost.

Everything is so overly commercialized, theres an average cost on flower viewing

Sad to hear of this!

Its always a awful tragedy to lose lives in an avalanche. Kinda horrible to hear others assigning blame and all that.

They were not hurting anyone else.

Posted in: Japan business lobby chief supports separate surnames for spouses See in context

My wife and I were married over ten years ago and we never faced this in any form.

She kept her western name and I am Japanese and kept mine.

It was up to us and was never even brought up.

Everytime someone needs to be taken down, they find the smallest things and then criminally print their own stories for everyone to read.

Mass indiscriminate murderer.

Throughout humankinds history this kind of crime towards your fellowmen usually doesnt result in 3 meals a day and a civil ending.

I am absolutely a gaijin to people here until I show them my ID :)

Then I explain my mixed blood.

I dont call myself a double, or flip a lid when someone says I am a hafu.

Posted in: Japan goalkeeper racially abused online after Asian Cup errors See in context

Well Roy I am half Japanese as are hundreds of others that I know.

Why aren’t you half then? Its because you dont like the term right?

Posted in: Japan goalkeeper racially abused online after Asian Cup errors See in context

Downvotes…love it!

People coming here from abroad and trying to tell me I am not half Japanese.

I am indeed HALF Japanese, as I am also American. It really don’t matter if you don’t like it.

Posted in: Japan goalkeeper racially abused online after Asian Cup errors See in context

There is actually 100% mixed and half Japanese, like me and my whole family.

Its always some westerner telling me that I am not half but a double or something else like that.

I most definitely consider myself mixed blood and part Japanese because I am also part other nationalities and have affinities to those places.

If you have no skin in the game, keep ur opinions.

You have to be able to look at things objectively without automatically defending all behaviors.

I am against all the violence btw and not hoping for anything bad toward either nations.

I’ve lived there. Certainly that is not the case in its entirety at all.

You are pretty dense for believing it hook, line, and sinker.

The work being done at my company now and what I see all over…a lot of construction workers don’t put on a harness even though their on an edge, or up very high.

Feel so bad for this man, wish he strapped himself in.
