This guy is so boring, no wonder nobody wants to spend time with him. For the past month all he’s been screaming was look at me! Look at me! I’m cool!

i graduated from the n.1 university in japan 4 years ago. The quality of teaching and of the students in general is very low. Sad.
what People don’t get is that you should be putting effort into the study through the degree, and not just memorizing a bunch of multiple choice questions to get in.

Are people seriously claiming transgenders go through gender reassignment in order to peek into the women restroom? How ignorant does one have to be to make such a claim.
Did anybody think transgender women aren’t for the most part even attracted to women?

every time I hear some k-pop or j-pop song I always wonder what went wrong with music in Asia. Why is music so disposable here?
People are always talking about the last song X of the group Y, and then forget about it in the blink of an eye. Everything sounds so shallow and artificial. Very sad.

Tell that to Spacey. Ousted on ALLEGATIONS of sexual misconduct.
Bocelli expresses two concepts:
1) presumption of innocence and
2) separation between private life and public life.
and I agree on both his statements.

Says a lot about Toyota, doesn't it?!
No, it doesn’t.
Do you live in Japan, or do you just speak randomly?
The other major car manufacturers do not pay that much for overtime.
Overpaying combini workers is not going to solve the problem, because that would lead to an increase in overall wages and would drive up the cost of living, which would eventually offset the pay rise.

I'll do a bet with you. Make the wages ￥3000 per hour, and I bet all the positions are filled within a day.
¥3000/hour for a combini worker?
that’s more than Toyota pay for overtime. ¥1000 is low, ¥1500 would be more reasonable

and no, it is not formidable. Not all gay people are hipsters who only care about appearance.
Some gay people like math, computer science, art, literature and so on.
What Queer Eye offers is a cheap, pret-a-porter face of homosexuality.
Insulting at best.

I actually blamed Amazon for that recently and they paid the shipping when I returned it. Their customer support is really good.
Good is a euphemism. They’re quick, reliable and cheap.
Japanese companies are beginning to understand how useless and expensive the resale concept is.
Last week I wanted to buy a cold press juicer: 1) price at Bic Camera 26000 yen 2) price on amazon 19000 yen. Bye Bic Camera!
god bless free market.

The advertising system is a variation of the collaborative filtering, similar to the one used on netflix to recommend new shows.
There is nothing wrong with it, and it even sometimes help - especially on amazon - when you are trying to decide whether to go for a product or another.
Unfortunately, in Japan, resellers are in a cartel, fixing prices and making no real competition. It is funny they claim GAFA promote unfair competition.
Japan, shout less and study more.

Hmmm. Would it not be easier to just go to the Philippines embassy and say she lost her passport so as to get a new one?
then she’d have no problems leaving Japan.

loving Ganbare Japan’s blanket statements.
No chance this is taking off. Just some halo effect to boost sales.
FCVs are too expensive

The *they refers to people working for NHK

Dumbing it down to Hiragana makes no sense, and here’s why.
1) if you’re fluent in Japanese, you can read Kanji and Hiragana would slow you down at best or confuse you.
2) if you’re not fluent in Japanese, chances are high you have access to any sort of software for translation (for example google translate). Machine translation for Japanese is trained on large corpora of standard Japanese text (that is, containing Kanji). Therefore having hiragana would result in a worse, not in a better automatic translation.
it is just a bunch of nonsense. NHK is a service many foreigners are forced to pay: they may as well try and learn English.

Honestly I don’t think anybody was expecting great things from him. It’s far too common in Japan to talk a lot and get nothing accomplished.
A good cut on waste could be making printed advertising illegal. Just for a start

I really hope he wins!
I’m gay and married to an American man and finding and apartment for two men in this country is ridiculously hard.
Most people on this website make their claims about the concept of marriage being between man and woman and all such garbage.
Marriage is a contract, nothing more, nothing less. And a contract can’t discriminate with regards to the gender of the parts.
What really bothers me is that straight couples at work can take an extra couple weeks off of paid holidays from work for the honeymoon after getting married but I can’t because legally, in Japan, I am not married.

The truck driver may be responsible, but it’s got to be sad if there’s a lot of bad drivers out there in this country.
I’ve never felt this as unsafe as I do feel here when driving, and I come from Rome, which says a lot in terms of danger tolerance.

She should be suing for more money.
12 million is literally nothing for a doctor and people should understand that the if they like gossiping, they have to bear its consequences.
$1M at least.
