Mr Kawamura

The English on your website is pretty bad. I would work on that since you seem to be catering to foreign clientele.

An odd headline.

Avoiding the security blunders that led to his death during the extravagant funeral doesn’t really make sense to me.

Dealing with unvaccinated children is one of the main issues for quitting?

Seems like a bit of a ridiculous claim. Are you unable to deal with unvaccinated adults? Personally makes no difference to me.

The LDP is so old and corrupt this kinda scandal is inevitable for them.

Thats laughable.

When people gonna figure out that other people arent like you? Other people dont want/need a preset agenda set by the locals on what to buy. They explore on their own.

No doubt after he realized he was in trouble, he used his considerable assets to coerce her to not file charges and receive monies instead.

Thats why he isn’t charged criminally. Interesting how in other cases the cops come down on you anyways and regardless, but this guy can get away with actually breaking her bones???

Money don’t talk, it speaks and gets the last word too.

Before you all get too worked up, the media in Japan is literally the mouthpiece of the LDP.

Explaining their defunct ways and trying to control propaganda is what they are trying to do. There is a lot of people who watch TV and walk off thinking its reality.

The whole planet has a demographic collapse due to the 2 generations of globalization. Japan is actually well placed to survive it due to our wealth, position, military, and social structure.

Did you just say that different cultures and ethnicity play no part in behavior?

And that, that is racial profiling???

Man you are pretty far off the mark

Good news for English teachers then hopefully. Teachers are paid a pittance.

Posted in: Gov't to forgo resubmitting immigration bill See in context

At a governmental and societal level, treatment of foreigners isn’t a priority really here.

It never has been and will probably take the leaders of Japan ordering everyone to eliminate certain practices and create other laws.

Posted in: 5 Japanese ‘compliments’ that can sound off to foreigners See in context

I am half but Japanese born but don’t look Japanese at all.

I’ve lived abroad as well as here and am well aware of when someone is giving me a compliment, or is actually being passive aggressive.

Expats seem to have their own pov

Posted in: No preferential treatment given over bid for Abe state funeral: Matsuno See in context

Like anyones gunna take ur word for it.

The entire LDP is in on everything together. You cant be in power for 70 years and not be.

They all loved the power and money the moonies brought them, and now it blew up in their faces and they dunno what to do.

Well I am a Japanese whom locals think is a westerner (by my appearance). It is pretty silly to get chopstick compliments, so I am always sure to reply with amazement at the commentors incredible spoon and fork abilities.

Thats usually the end of it lol

I think the comments arent as cruel as you think.

In most cases when someone is murdered, it is by someone they know well. The child has been searched for extensively within a wide perimeter, and we already know toddlers cant get too far too fast.

I wouldn’t put it past the parents or those nearby and neither are the cops I promise you.

Posted in: As Japanese manufacturing fades, a factory town fights to stay alive See in context

If you own a small business, as you inevitably age, if you do not choose a successor and train apprentices, why would you expect your shop not to close with you?

Japan was the richest country in the world when they opened.

If the USA does not pivot toward Asia, support the quad, and support India vs China, then the Pacific Zone would be a deadly war zone.

I see the us Navy’s domination over the straits as the actual deterrent to Beijings offensives.

Russia has its own energy.

Kind a joke.

Why would anyone expect to live in a world without nuclear weapons?

If anything we will be and have been and are building more weapons and more powerful bombs.

Japan and Japanese people are quite the culty people.

Many successful cults have made a lot of money here and ruined many lives.

Posted in: Okinawa gubernatorial race begins with U.S. base relocation in focus See in context

I am Japanese, but appreciative of the US bases.

I feel like the deterrent is better than being weak and preyed upon, and that is what happens around the world to those who are poor and don’t have armies.

Japan would be a hardcore dictatorship if it hadn’t been for the USA flipping it into a democracy.

Those folks demonstrating wouldnt even have the right to protest in old Japan.

Posted in: 72% of survey respondents say border controls reason for not visiting Japan See in context

They must have known that Japan was about to get clobbered by Covid.

Basically every other person has it, and Japan is now by far the country with the most daily infections and deaths too.

200-350 elderly die daily and they have all been vaccinated repeatedly

Posted in: Bad guys turn good in China 'Minions' movie ending See in context

Why is there one standard for China??

What a shame that the world bends to their wishes because of money.

Make the movie, they can censor it, and then in 20 movies they will only have a small collection of crap edited flicks and thats all they deserve.

Posted in: Kishida's support tumbles, hit by questions over Unification Church and COVID See in context

The simple truth is that there are many members and supporters within the LDP of the UC.

But they don’t acknowledge that everyone knows that and like old entitled elites (that they are) they pretend that calls to check themselves from within about it anger the public even more.

And Japan has had the worst covid statistics on earth for several weeks. More people infected (200,000-250,000 daily) and die (200-300) daily. Why hasn’t that been ever discussed.

Posted in: Police to revise rules for VIP protection after Abe shooting See in context

Ya think?

Me and my friends could’ve provided better security.

This comes from too much “follow the leader” mentality which is more prevalent here than nearly anywhere else in my opinion.

This is almost comical.

Any days a good day to have a protest against Japan in SK.

The placards and signs are always so amazingly well printed and done up so quick. They must have tremendous/ official funding / support.
