Posted in: Bank of Japan hikes inflation forecast on soaring energy prices See in context

Nobody believes in a 2 percent inflation rate. It 's more like 10 percent at least. Not to mention shrinkflation where everything is getting smaller.

Posted in: Japan should ease COVID border controls for foreigners: panel members See in context

Yes indeed over 130 yen to the dollar with the forecast of 150 sometime during May. What the hell is the J government waiting for. A currency in freefall and tourists not allowed to scoop up all the extremely cheap goods and services to be found in Japan? Senseless!.

Posted in: Japan should ease COVID border controls for foreigners: panel members See in context

The Yen has collapsed further this morning, now on the cusp of 130 yen to the dollar, with 150 yen to come very soon. Now is the time surely to open the borders to tourists who want to visit, so they can take advantage of bargain basement, dirt cheap Japan. They will spend spend spend on the ultra cheap goods available here with the collapsed Yen.

Do they Strangerland? I have seen some half hearted Judo lessons in schools here but I mean proper self defence classes with experienced trainers.

I want schools to teach their students self defence. Judo, Krav Maga, Hapkido or something. This 17 year old dude would get the shock of his life. I train in Judo and Taekwondo and have seen some very skilled girls of Junior High school age.

I have heard of foreigners in Japan demanding their companies pay salaries in dollars or they quit. What a shameful thing for Japan how far and how quickly their collapse has been.

Posted in: Japan's bid to address weak yen sidelined by G20 rift over Russia See in context

The Japanese yen, what a joke of a "currency". Nobody holds the disgusting yen anymore. Everybody holds Swiss Francs and Dollars. Impossible for Japan to attract foreign talent now, unless companies pay them in Dollars.

Ghosn is 68, thus doesn't have many years of life left. He has plenty of cash and will just see his days out in Lebanon. He has no reason to go to France, I'm sure he has had enough of this total farce.

Posted in: We are reaching our limits both mentally and financially. I believe that a boom in visiting Japan will definitely come after the pandemic. I'm worried that guides who can handle that situation will be in short supply. See in context

Yes absolutely ridiculous this tourist ban.. Open up and let all the bargain hunters in. The Japanese yen is the world's weakest and sickest currency, now at 128 to the dollar and on the way to 150 in a few weeks. Surely now is the time to let in the world's hoards so they can take advantage of their huge spending power in Japan now.

Of course tourists will soon come flooding back to dirt cheap Japan with its basket case of a " currency". I imagine the Chinese particularly will be snapping up everything in sight with their extremely low prices. Who wouldn't?

I guess very few foreigners here keep any funds in the collapsing yen, other than everyday needs. The yen is on the way to 150 to the dollar and unless you don't like money, keeping funds in yen is just insane.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. to closely watch currency movement as yen tumbles See in context

Nobody should keep any money, apart from everyday needs, in the poison yen. You would have to be insane to keep anything in the rapidly depreciating yen. 150 yen to the dollar is said to be reached in the near term.

For several years I have kept all my money in swiss francs and dollars. And I’m really glad about that!

Everybody get out of yen now, before it gets any worse.

And this is why, I don't have my savings in YEN.

I convert my salary right away and just have enough to pay my bills.

Don't hold YEN it's going to collapse.

Yes, I quite agree. For a long time now I have kept all my money in Swiss Francs and Dollars. The Yen is poisonous and now is in free fall. 121 to the dollar right now and dropping rapidly. Nobody should be holding the poisonous yen now apart from everyday needs.

About 100 years ago when I was Junior High School student, I was getting bullied. I told my Dad and he took me along to a boxing club which did me no end of good for my confidence and fighting ability. Result= no more bullying. I advocate some form of martial art for all bullied students. Will stop it.

It's sad that they have only been together for one third of their marriage. A major part of marriage, at least it is for me, is getting it on several times a week. It's only natural. Will she be coming to Tokyo now I wonder?
