Japan's newly-crowned U.S. Open women's singles champion Naomi Osaka

What? I thought she holds 2 passports. Why not US and Japan's newly-crowned......? They called her a hafu here so I think the title should be at least Hafu-Japan's newly-crowned....

Posted in: Osaka's U.S. Open win re-opens cultural discussion in Japan See in context

All this is really BS. If you grow up in American your whole life, then you are an American, whether you have an American passport or not. Because inside you are the American culture that you learn and grow up with. Nationality is only a legal status and some document that holds you to the system. If I meet a black person who speaks perfect Japanese and behave like one, I am going to say, oh, nihonji da! That is without knowing if the person has a Japanese passport or not. If a Japanese person can't speak Japanese at all, I would feel weird to think or call the person a Japanese. Because if you can't speak the language, how can you be one? So legally Naomi is Japanese, I really don't think she is Japanese at all. So, Japanese please don't think Japan has won the US Open. I think an American won it - because she grew up in US and holds a US passport too.

Nothing new here in Japan. These so called giants always do what they like and abuse the others. On the outside they appear to be professional but deep down they are no different from a criminal.

No thank you. There are many other places where there is no such problem, so consumers are free to choose those areas.

Posted in: U.S. thirst rises for Japanese whisky See in context

Yoichi 10 years used to be 4000+ yen but it's now over 20,000yen. Taketsuru 17 was about 5000yen but now closing 20,000yen. Imagine those 20 years and up, insane prices. IMO Nikka is the best here and Yoichi and Taketsuru are really top notch. Never into Suntory and Yamazaki (only if you get those rare casks). JP whiskeys are way overpriced these days for those with vintage. It's not the makers' fault. We are just losing out to supply and demand. Go to old individual shops and see if they still have those with vintage at normal price. If you see a Taketsuru 17 for 7500yen, grab it!

Posted in: Half-Indian elephant trainer crowned Miss Japan See in context

I think the main problem here is not about being Haafu. I'm guessing the problem lies with the person having a darker skin. In Japan, there are many haafu celebrities and people love and adore them, especially those with fair skin. Imagine if someone with fair skin like Maggy, Darenogare Akemi, Lola (Bangladeshi blood), etc., won the competition, people would scream kawaii and adore her as goddess. My Japanese friends told me while they do not disapprove a half-Indian Miss Japan, they do feel weird when seeing seeing someone with a dark skin being awarded Miss Japan. Actually Yoshikawa has fairer skin than Ariana Miyamoto. But when Miyamoto was on the stage, I know some people may have thought are Japanese black? Because a Miss Japan is someone who represents the country and the people. That's why some people cannot accept that. Lastly, someone said it here right. Most Japanese are not really talking about this. It is the gaikokujin and media talking non-stop about all this racial and discrimination issue. Just let it rest.

Posted in: Are you tired of hearing calls from South Korea and China for Japan to address World War II issues with apologies? See in context

Those who agreed to this poll are clueless. If you are not born and raised in Asia, grew up in China and South Korea, even Southeast Asia, you will never understand. You don't agree because you simply do not understand and do not care, that's why you agree with this poll that you are sick of hearing calls from C and SK. But those of us who disagree understand why this has to be done. Even western countries are calling Japan to make the proper apology. Why is that so? Because they understand and know what's going on. Look at Abe, the leader of the country, do you think he is really sorry? Lastly, put yourself in those people's shoes, imagine someone in your family was killed by JP during WWII, do you think it is really that easy to forgive and forget? Here we are talking about thousands of people being killed and then the aggressor pretends like they didn't do anything wrong. Please think about it. Murakami is spot on, even as a Japanese.

Posted in: Sam Smith cancels Japan gigs over vocal hemorrhage See in context

Wc626, agree with you on the venue. The concert was booked a year ago before he became famous. The tickets are like 6000yen each and with his status now no way with that price. it is better to cancel the concert and pay the penalty and do it again next time with a better payout. I didn't make this up, by the way.
