Posted in: Man held for pushing commuter off Osaka subway platform See in context


Why am I lumping? Dude, first off the statement that Osaka people and Japanese people in general are “animals on trains”....well I can take any of you to task on that debate and win easily.

I am Japanese American, but have lived all over and here, and this place is one of the best mannered countries I’ve seen.

But if you all are that desperate to dish dirt on then OK....what a rowdy animalistic train culture Osaka has!

Sorry, I’m a lifelong Osaka and Kobe kid. We act like animals on the train do we?

You ought to get out and about a little more.

If their was no trains incoming, isn’t a charge of attempted murder jumping to conclusions?

Got to love the guys here who are complaining that J ladies are too picky.

Dude, its probably that you aren’t attractive to her! And now you apply that logic across the board?

I wouldn’t go out with anyone unless I thought they were hot in some way either.

Jackie Chan lost a lot of my respect when he revealed his own bigotry and support for dictatorships.

I can see this from my house. Literally happened in my neighborhood.

Not a nice way to wake up on Sunday, with sirens going off and ten choppers up over you.

I’m sure that when you go in for Annuals a little piece of you is left behind.

No doubt the government will see itself as entitled to having your DNA.

Looks like the government ministers are doing all the actual work now and this week, before their bosses arrive to shake hands and take pictures (and close down our highways).

Personally the Japanese POV is HILARIOUS and completely out of date. I love hearing things like this, especially after 2 beers

Good! The main point of the alliance in the post WWII era is to be a concern to Russia. Now China as well.

Posted in: Rubber part falls from chopper onto school in Okinawa: U.S. Marines See in context

Politicians and their causes (which enrich and enpower them for life) are fair fodder for criticism to me Yubaru.

In a time where China’s threat grows, I don’t appreciate a blind (get out) anti American stance here, as for me, that would be one of the steps that would lead to more instability.

Yubaru Do not speak ill of the dead? Onaga led this campaign which is damaging (imo) to my nation. No its like some carrot top talkin about vets at all.

My country, my opinion, and I’m allowed to state it.

Wanting the US out of Okinawa is inviting Chinese aggression.

I consider guys like Onaga Anti-Japanese.

Posted in: Recent murder cases in Japan draw attention to recluses living with aging parents See in context

Theres a high number ratio wise of recluses here in Japan. Theres also a very high number of enablers...people who should have taken action when their child was still a child.

Now (usually a he) is a giant massive man child with obvious mental health issues that are getting worse not better.

Posted in: Japan to ban free plastic bags at stores to fight marine pollution See in context

The headline says “ban” and the article reads “charge for”.

Those are not the same, but should help en mass to just put things in your bag instead of receiving a plastic bag

Japan is not normal in this sense. So many people foster and nuture these kinds of sick giant individuals.

It is not normal to be cooking and cleaning for 40-50 year olds and having them complain and whine like children.

It’s a sick relationship where the parent has a child who doesn’t wanna grow up, and the parents don’t seem to want them to develop either.

Parents in Japan are also responsible for this. So many people I know have allowed their (now adult) child to become a giant (nearly always male) man baby.

Aren’t they a threat to us? Missiles and Missile Defense are a sovereign decision.

If you do something naturally (laughing) it isn’t rude. If you feel it is, or others do, then say excuse me. What kinda question is this?

Hmm, forgot to add in the paragraph where our whole work structure power dynamic would have to change.

But these are good changes as Japan really only changes fast, from the top down. If there aren’t official rules, many things won’t get done.

Wow Trump is really getting the red carpet rolled out.

Ultimately, as long as the USA and Japan are both strong, and their ties good, Japan is safer.

Thats all that matters to me.

It would have been very easy for this mom to win and own this argument. I think it would have been good for all involved.

This is not regular in Japan I think.

Many schools even make customized foods that parents bring in since they are non meat eaters, or a muslims, etc.

What physical punishment actually entails is still very vague.

No spankings, swats, slaps, etc seems to be implied.
