I just hope it's not the current itself that is directly causing the taste difference.

Posted in: 'Foreign travelers are Japan’s guests' – Governor against charging tourists more than locals See in context

Incoming tourist has upward pressure on the exchange right? So it's a bit counter intuitive.

So you can entrap and then call the police

Entrapment only applies to police? I can entice others to commit crimes? That's news to me. I guess you're right then.

What element is missing for it to be considered entrapment? Looks like bait with GPS tracking was used. But I guess much like plea bargaining, the concept is foreign to the justice system I guess.

And here I thought entrapment isn't allowed.

Posted in: 64-year-old man arrested for molesting 1-year-old girl in Kyoto park See in context

One year old in a park should have all of the attention of the mother, and I can't really think of a reason the opportunity for this to happen arises.

Posted in: Judge orders ex-interpreter for Ohtani to get gambling addiction treatment See in context

I still don't get how Otani wouldn't notice $16m 'missing' from his accounts....

160 mil that is, but seeing as the wins went to mizuhara's account and not ohtani's it felt odd that he would be in on it.

Number's are bad but the industry is always going to be heavily cyclical, deadline driven and low barriers to entry so not surprised.

Posted in: Japanese police use plea bargaining system for 1st time in fraud case See in context

If it's used in Ghosn case, than how is it the first time? I don't quite believe that the concept of a plea bargain is completely foreign to the Japanese justice system.

I guess why reduce sentence when you can lock them up til they confess.

Posted in: Fan outcry over K-pop star's date highlights 'harsh' industry rules See in context

Only solution is regulation, the companies running it aren't going to regulate themselves. The companies have all the leverage, "this" is basically what the idols offer.

Isn't deflation the definition of the cost of living not going up? Feels like much of the same, not that it isn't a issue.

Posted in: Ohtani says he never bet on sports; claims interpreter Mizuhara stole money, told lies See in context

I dunno, not knowing where a few million bucks in your account went to, even on a high level basis sounds mighty fishy. I do agree he should be incentivized enough to not gamble, but he's mighty careless then.

Posted in: Police officer busted for stealing women’s underwear from several residences See in context

I don't think the punishment is unfitting of the crime, similar to shop lifting perhaps with a element of perversion. Was there really emotional damage to the female victims?

Sure, Japan should take some of these perversion driven crimes, but this ain't it.

Posted in: Over 50% of car drivers in Japan do not stop for pedestrians at crosswalks, according to a survey by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF). Why do you think that is? See in context

Isn't it based on right of way? There'd be way more accidents if they literally didn't stop if they didn't have right of way 50% of the time.

Posted in: LDP amends party rules to toughen penalties for fund violations See in context

The revised internal rules stipulate that the LDP can urge a lawmaker to leave the party if an accountant of their political group is arrested or if the lawmaker is prosecuted for violating the political funds control law.

So... The revised one allows for them to urge them to leave the party if prosecuted; the non revised one means they can't even ask? They are tethered to the payroll for life? Sure... I believe that

Posted in: Film poses moral questions about 2011 Fukushima disaster displacement See in context

Doesn't seem realistic to reinstate the community as it involves various members, the neighbours she talk of may not want to remain there. So the community she pines for just isn't the same.

There is literally no talk of the dangers related to the meltdown. Not to be rude but 18 interviewee feels like it's anecdotal.

I hope no one is confused by the fact that the most important thing to a company, China will not provide, and that is stability. Things may be great today, but no one knows about tomorrow.

Posted in: The number of marriages in Japan last year fell below half a million for the first time in 90 years, according to the health ministry. What do you think are some of the reasons for this? See in context

The progression from dating to marriage to having kids is quite time and resource restricted. It's not only it takes alot of time and resources but there's only so much to accomplish them. Many factors impact this including demographic, economic, hierarchal, technological, social ones. And basically most of the changes in those over past 90 years I would say overall negatively impacts the younger generation.
