SK pandering to China and NK!

What interest do they have in doing this actually? No doubt they are doing the bidding of their powerful neighbors.

Posted in: Almost half of mothers in Tokyo want train cars designed especially for moms and kids, so that they don't have to worry about sideways glances from other passengers when their children cry or act up, according to a Tokyo Metropolitan Government survey. What do you think about this? See in context


Wow, so I’m supposed to believe that some old lady came up and slapped your infant (7 month) year old for having her foot on the train car? Not only is that highly suspect, if you did not defend your child against this (if your story happened...this maniac) then YOU really should be a more protective parent.

Uhhhh yeah the police convicting you because he is convinced he burned your eyes into his or her thanks!

JPolice need to rely on better evidence as it is. This is a great idea...50 years ago.

Posted in: Women in Tokyo strongly back single-sex transport amid security fears: global poll See in context


You were felt up by an old lady? :))

I think the difference is that under the usual situations, sexual harassment for men is not scary or threatening as it is for women.

Its not the same, so a lady’s feelings gotta be considered imo.

Upon returning to Japan I realised that in my opinion, the situation here is compounded by the ladies not being willing or able to stand up for themselves.

Seeing men talk down or at women is commonplace. On the train or in public spaces men often will annoy women and not be rebuffed or told to stop. Many times a young lady will smile and accomodate and answer the questions of an obvious pervert.

If people got more upset at the behavior and vocal about it, I bet the problem would halve.

Posted in: 340,000 foreigners may flow into Japan in 5 years under new visa system See in context

I am a Japanese American who looks foreign, and I understand the comments about Japanese shock towards people’s language and even eating abilities, but I don’t think its malicious or xeno a lot of the time.

It does seem stupid to a westerner, but not in Asia. You will find Thai’s and Chinese, and Cambodians surprised and laughing as you eat their spicy foods and try to speak their language.

If it is a slight or someones putting me down, I can tell. Also, in general few people in their 20s or 30s are actually “shocked” at your chopstick abilities. Its politeness to feign interest and awe yo.

Whats with the hypocrisy these days? I dont need a fake apology thats based on damage control to an asset.

He is who he is. Whether you are or still are a fan is up to you. He is pretty stupid to bite the feeder but I’m sure thoughts like that are common in Korea and China.

Osaka doug

Uhhh no, let me explain.

In Japan we 101% cover for work, each other, and the boss.

To imagine that there’s a meet8ng going on at JAL as to why the crew didn’t turn each other over to the cops when they saw something wrong...well as a Japanese...that kinda ridiculous!

I am 100% sure that his colleagues knew he was drunk.

This is a matter of covering up for each other instead of all this jibberish.

And what’s this nonsense about not knowing anything about procedures because the pilot has been arrested? That’s the most pathetic excuse I have ever heard.

JAL doesn’t know what’s going on because they need to hear from this guy first?

You should have a fool proof alcohol detection system

Posted in: Tamaki invites U.S. lawmakers to Okinawa to see base reality See in context

No need to visit if you know geography. At this moment in time the base is a good Chinese deterrant in my opinion.

I don’t want a US withdrawal amid a Chinese expansion.

Tamaki’s just trying to stay relevant with his only card. He should pipe down and serve the people.

Humans probably have to evolve to live together. We need to evolve to a higher mentality and have more tolerance, less primitive religions, instincts and customs.

Until then it’s pretty obvious that when different nationalities, traditions, values get together and clash and demand unrealistic things from each other.

If you immigrate and don’t assimilate it is hard to not feel excluded sometimes. It’s hard enough being mixed blood even in Japan.

Ha look at all these sourpuss comments.

“Oh yeah Japanese are so fickle, oh yeah Japanese hated on her till she became a champ”

Firstly YOU are the ones doing the hating. What the media report and what individual people think are not the same thing at all.

Well Im Japanese and I’ll tell you that 80% of all I heard from young and old alike is simply that they love the champ! The whole world loves a winner!

Too bad some folks end up just bein whiners.

”Japanese nationalism is rising every year. This is an undeniable fact!”

My man! How off could you be.

Japan has been getting less nationalist and more capitalist every year.

This place was even way more racist and hardcore when I was growing up and Im in my 30s. This used to be the most nationalist nation on earth!
