Countless people have suffered innumerable losses today.

I hope they can find peace in such a devastating situation.

Antique

Understood and agree.

I just also think that being involved with foreigners is really not something Japanese are used to.

It’s better for me to be at peace with it personally.

Since I have moved back here (Osaka) I have a lot of friends from all over and everyone has told me they have only been stopped once or twice in 20-30 years here.

They range from Black Japanese to Brazilian to Korean. I myself would never be seen as Japanese and always get a chuckle when I say my name and where Im from.

Like I stated before...the parents and others here are outraged.

The children and us who actually live double lives with its blessings and curses get it.

It is a laugh seeing westerners get all offended and angry. And no, everytime a Japanese person asks you something it is not offensive.

I very much doubt someone who says he is always stopped by the police here and asked to show ID.

Those who know Japan know better.

I don’t really think any others other than mixed race people should really be listened to.

Most of you just don’t know what the reality is, and thats just normal.

I’m a quarter Japanese / Hawaiian /Caucasian.

I haven’t got a problem with anyone being genuine, I do of they are just being a douche.

I don’t mind being referred to as half or quarter or whatever. I am also a citizen and everyone knows.

The people who I have seen the most offended are the western parent of their mixed kid. Many times the term half upsets them and they think it’s detrimental, and that I should be called a “double” instead.

LOL!

Skin Color or nationality more is true to an extent, but so are acquired skills with the intelligence to make it work for you also as crucial in my opinion.

LOL Yes Yubaru a 50 ton crane license (which is no doubt long expired) is an excellent example. Anyways, interesting how different people get all worked up about stuff.

I will continue to drive and buy vehicles precisely the way it suits my life thank you very much.

Years of playing the victim, not accepting apologises, and refusing to forgive are quite bad for your population.

Funny Yubaru...you want to keep me off the roads?

I live downtown, do not have a family and found myself paying for parking mostly and decided to not permanently own a vehicle.

As you often get worked up about, this is Japan, and you actually don’t need a car in Osaka.

I can “suddenly wanna drive” man, why would it instigate wrath from you?

Posted in: Truck driver stabbed on Yokohama street after dispute with motorcyclist See in context

Is that so?

I like to challenge comments that are somewhat offensive.

If a crime occurs somewhere, I dont mentally try to attribute that to society as a whole.

A man while riding around drunk with a large knife looking for trouble, stabs another in the head, and then waits and gloats over the person.

But yeah you now state that you really think Japans safety record and attempts at it are “hogwash” (your words). I m guess to you every time theres a violent crime its an example of this hogwash?

Yeah dude, I am the one who needs perspective lol

Do the hustle

Do you actually think other thinking folk resonate with your logic?

An incident does not make a whole nation, yes in “safety Japan” too.

Hows the crime rate in your nation may I ask?

AustPaul

I hear in Aus, males are not allowed to teach young kindergarten and other children because of “sex abuse”

I think a law like that is also harmful, and sets a bad precedent.

That being said, this guy really should never been allowed near children again!

Posted in: Red tape, commission fees hinder aid delivery to virus-hit firms See in context

There has been a great disparity in the speed and ease of government aid.

Since most in my fam have businesses, most have got or are in process of receiving 100万 from the government and another 50万 from Osaka Pref for closing during April - May.

I finally applied for one of those last week and the 10万 form came to my house last Friday after my accountant complained of their tardiness via phone on Thursday.

Bunch of westerners on here who can’t fathom that another culture may have done something that turned out better than their plans?

It is pretty apparent that Japanese are different and that may have helped them THIS time.

Being awkwards and non sociable doesnt always help Japanese always...at least it did this time around.

Posted in: Frontline health workers in Japan continue to face discrimination over virus See in context

A sad negative side of our culture here that is a bit more prevalent in Japan than in the west I think.

The notion that discrimination is wrong is not really as strong.

Being Japanese but Caucasian Hawaiian too, theres a lot of people who are labeled and thus “different”.

But to harass a hospital worker or their families during the pandemic should get the same naming and shaming as a pachinko

Posted in: Lawyers say Japanese video game time ban for kids violates constitution See in context

I don’t know why, but this ban just seems so North Korean or Chinese in its dictatorshipness.

It is not the federal government’s (old people) place to dictate games.

There are professional gamers and in the future they will be as popular as Ronaldo and Michael Jordan.

Sport and E Sport is big and will get bigger.

Can we perhaps put a ban on how many cartoon porn magazines an old man should buy too then?

Seems silly and more like a reaction rather than a intelligent action.
