Agreed Bertie and I am Japanese, but this just seems foolish.
If you read the article carefully too it looks like he was set up for failure. Its probably an anecdote for trying to promote tea culture. Omotenashi should also understanding others a tiny bit.
The whole thing is too rigid for me anyways. I just buy a 2 bottle of matcha or green tea a day and swig it.
Anyone’s welcome to have some too...

Obviously common sense should also be used.
A 18 or 19 yesr old may be should not be totally liable for everything as they lack maturity, but they certainly should pay for their actions.
If they hurt others or do wrong knowingly, they should not be assumed to be a child.

I guess the next part of my lifetime is WWII continued with a still alive Russia, a new China, and the rest taking sides.
Thank goodness that Japan, America, Australia, Vietnam, and India represent a different (better imo) life.
China and Russia’s MO must not become world standard.

Is suicide not a possibility? With or without dementia?
The poor daughter who cared for her must be feeling so awful. I hope her and the family can find their peace.

Theres probably massive peer pressure and government pressure to see Japan in a bad light in Korea and China as well.

Is the water actually safe to be released? I wouldn’t eat or drink anything from Fukushima as it is anyways

Tough one! Being how lax Japan is on rape, violence, and murder, I am happy to see him receive 16 years!
But he hopefully will die in prison and never get out. Why should he be walking around when 50 years old when he strangled a small child to death for nothing?
He should receive life in prison.

Should be in the news as a hate crime.

I would probably want to read it and conceptually think anout whats written.
How about Korea also tone down the hatred rhetoric towards Japan?

Interesting to me that Hong Kong can still lose its autonomy, but actually climb in business rankings.
Does that mean that they are doing incredible business regardless? Or is it that all financial centers had an off covid year.

Noozefest of big business, revenge, and xenophobia.
If nothing else, these guys shoulda known (with hindsight) that they were pissing Japan Inc off with this money merger.
When all is said and done, I do believe that the books and documentaries and investigations will show the witch hunt.

Personally I think Japan shud give Taiwan a free pass and be like “ok friend, sure you can fish”....
When the Chinese come....well go call Daddy Yankee

There are definitely tourists around.
It is odd when you think about the rules, but it’s definitely going on albeit small scale.
I live in Namba and its quite obvious whos a tourist.

Shamefully silly for the prosecutors to actually pursue this to the Supreme Court.
All it would do is make international news that Japan was being ridiculous.
As a Japanese, I’d like to put out a report that their actions were “extremely regrettable”

On the other hand if your a Japanese that looks foreign like I am...you can defend yourself, and it’s a good opportunity to make fools of fools.

Theres simply a lot of sports that Japan wouldn’t be able to compete in at the top level in general without having mixed Japanese and half’s like us.
Japan would not have an NBA player like Hashimura, sprinters, and probably wouldn’t have any rally good tennis players either. The Rugby team would be nowhere near as good. The Basketball Team would be awful I think.

So they won’t advertise makeup that transforms you? No more weight loss pills or body enhancing products of any kind?
Thats fine, but I noticed yahoo stopped doing comments a few months ago.
Thats not good.

You may have turned rejection into an art form, but how about figuring out how to read the crime section without equating it to all “Japanese people cannot handle rejection”
You do realize that your reading about the evil and the nutters
