Alright. I'll just keep asking for two sets of chopsticks every time I go until they run out.

Just checked their website. Every room is Y20,000+ so I'm pretty sure the cost of the beer is included, plus anything else they can charge you for.

Posted in: Japanese government wants to encourage wealthy foreigners to travel deeper into Japan, NHK says See in context

I don't think "wealthy foreigners" would be as interested in "deeper" or more "boring" parts of Japan as much as the average traveler with only Y500,000 yen to spend on his or her vacation for the weekend would be. Japan is really making itself look bad since it's COVID recovering efforts by targeting only wealthy and the elite further proving how clueless and superficial the government really is about showing a sincere interest in learning, sharing and cooperating with outside countries. Money isn't everything, especially if all we'll get in return is a cup of expensive tea and some senbei while being chaperoned as if we were still in high school. Japan, I know it's hard, and I know you're holding onto thousands of years of heritage and culture but you've got to make some steps towards progression and adapt to current ideologies of the world. Accept all who want to come because I don't see a lot of rich people on YouTube bragging about what such a lovely time they've had here. I just see people like me, the other commenters on this website and millions of other regular people showing their appreciation for the good times that they USED to have here. It's the little people that count. We're the ones spending the most, bringing our friends and family and returning time after time, before COVID, that is. Now, we're just going to South Korea, the Philippines, Africa because they'll take anybody, and it's cheaper!

Posted in: Woman arrested over murder of 51-year-old man with whom she lived See in context

She (the unemployed person in this relationship) killed HIM (the very much employed company president) and then tried to hang herself. Looks as if she either became fearful of losing her sugar-daddy and benefits or he threatened to put her out...on the street...where a lot of unemployed people live, and they argued and she became angry and fearful and still killed him again. It says he was stabbed more than once.

He should have properly secured and concealed the knives, however, the passenger could have assessed the situation a little better before pulling the emergency switch. The man was drunk and asleep. People here are on edge, man.

This is every parents worst nightmare. How far could a 2 year old have gone if she just took her "eyes off him just for a few minutes"? Two year olds can move but not fast enough to cover a 1.5km in minutes, no matter how you look at it. Either this baby is deceased and hidden somewhere or someone kidnapped him.

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting woman See in context

Nowhere on Earth is safe from the impulses of sexual desires. If someone wants to touch you, they're going to do it anytime and in any place. It's really sad she was assaulted like this. My girl is also Japanese and said she had her breasts (which are pretty big) fondled from behind in a train station while she was buying her ticket. This happens a lot in Japan, especially to Japanese women. I'm glad this woman had the courage to report it as soon as she did and hopefully others who can't control their impulses take note and just...go to Kabukicho or Uguisudani and rent a...

Posted in: Japan extends detention for Abe's accused assassin See in context

They do this to pretty much anybody they think is guilty in hopes that they collapse and confess under the pressure of their round-the-clock interrogations. This guy is obviously guilty; so many people have him on video but still, a confession is what they're probably seeking. FYI, they can hold you for a little more than 3 weeks while they wait for this and this is before they even charge you for the crime. lol

Posted in: Man arrested after taking woman hostage in Saitama internet cafe See in context

1738Kwaaa!!Today  09:01 am JST

This story has many holes in it. Firstly it might be how hastily this article is written or there is something going on between the staff and this man. The girl visited the room to clean it?, Serve food?, alcohol? Then after 5 minutes another staff calls the police? Why? Girl visit a room, and then police is immediately called? Guy refuses to open door for 4 hours. Something fishy is going on here or someone was being set up. Usually those who set you up use younger girls.............. and the rest you know!

I immediately thought what you did. I've been to several Internet cafes since I've been here in Tokyo, Kanagawa, even in Osaka and not once has a staff member come to my room. I always get a private room with a door because I'd sometimes sleep in them for a few hours before going on my way but not a single person knocked on my door, ever. Every Internet cafe that I've been to had snacks and drinks OUTSIDE in the LOBBY, as well as showers and restrooms. I really can't fathom why she would have entered his room in the first place unless he saw her in the hall and pulled her inside.

I live in Kanagawa and Tokyo, as well as in Tochigi which isn't too far from Ibaraki and while we don't know the exact details of the crash, I can say that I've seen so many people speed up to beat a red light time and time again. It's like, where are you trying to get to that is so important that you have to drive like you've got no sense? It's scary being a pedestrian out here. The streets can and will take you out.

I don't know, this is gonna be hard one to prove but you can be sure he will confess to a lot more than "handcuffing" under the Japanese-style relentless police interrogations.

Posted in: U.S. naval officer in Japan faces prison over deadly crash See in context

@Yubaru YubaruToday  08:24 am JST

After the crash near Fujinomiya, he was arrested by Japanese authorities and held for 26 days in solitary confinement at a police detention facility, interrogated multiple times a day and was not given a medical treatment or evaluation, according to a statement of facts provided by a family spokesman. That statement says that when American authorities arrived to take Alkonis into custody and return him to a U.S. base, he already was held by the Japanese.

Something is strange here, as there is nowhere in the article that states whether or not he was under SOFA status, and assuming he wasn't, then there was no requirement for the Japanese authorities to return him to US military control.

This "statement of facts" while believable, is not the whole story, and only one side.

This is a good question but I don't think him being under SOFA or not would have had any effect on his treatment as just him being active duty in a SOFA member country alone would automatically protect him as he's still as asset to the US military. They would most definitely step in and assist him with the same help and legal protection as they would for SOFA sponsored personnel. I've personally seen cases like this and with active duty soldiers who came here on TDY or just for vacation, got into trouble with the law (drunk driving/not paying cab fare/rape, etc), and in every situation, they were represented by base personnel of their respected branch.
