Fully behind my Japan and their beautiful ridiculously mixed up (but still) Japanese National Squad!

People can bash this all they want.

I think that to pile on all your complaints when the story is about a multi cultural rugby team representing Japan...perhaps you are also small minded.

This will have some impact and it will fade and Japan will change with time (as you all should know by now)

As a very mixed blood, but also very Japanese person, this makes me quite happy :)

My Kindergarten does it.

That bring said, NHK can surely get its warning up in the 5-6 major world languages can’t it? Its not too hard.

Being offended is now a hobby, pastime, and full on occupation for some.

Relax Yubaru

And yes, if theres foreigners who think Japan should shoot at North Koreans, I would indeed say that their opinion counts for less, as does mine in their country. I don’t want Japan in a conflict!

Well maybe you guys from other nations think that Japan should do this or that...

I’m glad that we show restraint and treat them better than they do/would us. It probably saves lives in the end.

Yubaru

In my opinion, a drunk driver is quite guilty. Why would he “deserve” to be pardoned?

Knowingly drinking and driving puts other people’s lives knowingly at risk.

Agreed that those peeps who fly along at top speed in a crowded station are dangerous.

They often graze by me and give no thought to other’s safety.

This isn’t really a great picture. Its the Hankyu Umeda station final stop area.

At another time of day the photographer could have gotten 100s of people into the shot (with runners too).

If what you did wasn’t evil, didn’t hurt anyone, or what you did was only to you and didn’t affect anyone else...they shouldn’t be in jail.

Managing to make a headline out of it is probably the most that will happen over this.

This is brought up at every major sporting / construction event all over the world. But its always after the fact, and after its too late. The vast majority did not have any better working conditions or future progress.

Posted in: Kansai Electric admits execs' acceptance of gifts; president won't resign See in context

Hey hey hey guys, why get yourselves so amped up?

Are you surprised? This is how we do here.

Ghosn....he’s a dead man walking.

But we Japanese like to bow, mentally toss the crap out (forget) and plug on as if we didn’t already know, its way better to be at the top.

In all seriousness though, this is always going on everywhere. Japan is just blatantly old fashioned about it.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka pokes fun at Japan comedians' 'bleach' comments See in context

As a kid and adult even I would relentlessly get probed about my appearance, whether I was really Japanese or not, the pros and cons of being half American, and blah blah blah, but often it would end up (with the nastier people) as some kinda essence of racial purity of the Japanese etc.

I often mused out loud at that point that pure purity on an island with limited folk would inevitably lead to some nasty inbreeding...

Posted in: Artists protest hate underlying attacks on Aichi art festival See in context

This is political and a disputed issue.

Now art and politics have to mix? A sad thing imo.

But this is more reflecting the current state of affairs more than anything else.

Do the hustle

Its deeply ingrained (in some you way) “in our culture” to dash off of a train no matter how crowded...sorry I had to laugh.

In a sea of people there’s always a few nutters and some people who will do weird things.

It was not premeditated?
