Great news. I used to live next to the 246 and the stench of car/truck fumes made it impossible to open the windows. I would get a headache sitting on my balcony. All of that will be gone.

Unless you are very wealthy anyone using this program isn't altogether upstairs. Any spare money you have should be saved. Not spent sitting in 'romance cars'. The global economy is crumbling.

Remember thalidomide, be very careful on the uptake of new medicine with no long term trials.

Ignore above, didn't read correctly, it's candidates not in office. It's fine to have more women competing may the best man win.

Well I do live in Tokyo but want nothing to do with this glorified school sports day. I don't want any of my hard earned tax money wasted on this nonesense especially in these times of hardship for everyone.

Anyone using that scheme isn't very sharp. In this uncertain climate any extra money you have should be banked for the future safety of your family. Even if the government were paying 90% I still wouldn't be spending the 10%. Who knows what's going to happen next year, don't be enticed to spend your saving on overpriced hot tubs and bean cakes.

70,000yen per month it costs me to have a private hoikuen in Setagaya-ku. We been on the waiting list for over 2 years now for a government hoikuen. Doesn't take a genius to figure out the problem here Suga

So the number of seriously ill is down to 22. Is the reason for this people being discharged into their home or into the morgue? Seriously do we know?

When did 'slam' become an acceptable description for a news website. I see it everywhere, such an awful phrase.

Im not a religious person. However if there was an afterlife, I hope there is a special place in Hell reserved for these people. Absolutely boils my blood to hear this, how can people be so heartless to prey on vulnerable elderly people.

As a foreigner and a black man, it's even more painful to see someone similar to yourself being made an example of.
He punched the woman in the face as a trained martial artist and fractured her cheekbone. How is he being made an example of?
Ive had a fractured cheekbone from being hit and from first had experience it's weeks of pain and swelling. Once that swelling goes down it needs to be reset and swell and pain again. I have no idea who this guy is but his actions are criminal.

Shock horror, some human beings tell lies regardless of gender.

Theres fewer cases because since Suga came into office daily testing has dropped to less than 2000. Is this coincidence?
25 ( +28 / -3 )
It seems since Suga has taken over testing has dropped from around 5000 per day to between 1-2000 per day.

The two worst culprits in my eyes are the Parent Mama Chari speedsters who strap their most precious possession to their handle bar seats and go speeding into the abyss using them as a battering ram. Or the Uber eats who are obviously incentivised to go fast and so have absolutely zero regard for anything other than getting to their destination while the food is still hot.

You said it is down to 'global decline' however it is currently impossible to ship from Japan to the USA without using a private courier firm(which have all added fees due to covid). I have clients tearing their hair out wanting products but I cannot supply them. So it's not that straightforward.

Wow. Since when does skin color have anything to do with the appropriateness of representing Japan, or any other country for that matter.
No, you are twisting what I said. SHE does not consider herself Japanese as she said recently she is black. She does not live in Japan and cannot speak Japanese. As for appropriateness I've no idea where you got that from my comment.

I used to pay 8000yen a month on docomo, finally decided enough was enough and switched to Rakuten, it's free for 1 year and then 3000yen a month after that. Signal is a bit dodgy in places but on the whole it's good.

Parasite had a 100% Korean cast, it was a fantastic movie however it had zero 'diversity' in it. I've long given up looking for logic from these type of people.

We have been on a waiting list for 2 years now. All that time paying 70,000yen per month for a private nursury. Every 6 months have to reapply with all the same forms and certificates again having to get both our companies HR to print and Hanko the same forms again. All of this and then I read articles about the government trying to encourage more people to have kids, it's laughable.

@oldman_13 of course it's rare, isn't Hollywood in America, a 60% white country, why would they make all 'asian' movies. It's like Bollywood making an all white movie, would you applaud that?
Yes mods I'm waiting for my comment to be censored for wrongthink! :)
