Posted in: Tokyo to remove last trash cans from stations next month See in context

The Japanese government has it easy to create inconvenient laws for the citizens because it is a "shikataganai" society.

He just cannot make his own rules, right or wrong. What if everybody jumped bail and fled to another country just because they had money. Hope he gets it from the behind in prison.

Posted in: Doctor arrested on suspicion of filming female patient during operation in Kyoto See in context

Don't always think a male doctor is unfazed by the presence of a partial or fully unclothed woman. It's a myth that they are so professional and don't bat an eye to their women patients. This is not isolated only to Japanese doctors.

I have been hearing a lot about these perverts in the educational institutions in Japan. I believe these are the ones that get caught, and there are many more predators out there. The principal was keen and took quick action by informing the authorities.

Posted in: Man dies after being hit with beer bottles in bar See in context

Nothing ever good comes out of bars.

Don't know why Denda had to hit him with two bottles, but he'll most likely blame it on the wine, as they usually do.

Posted in: Mother gets 8 years in prison for leaving 3-year-old daughter alone at home for week to die See in context

She probably had mental health issues, hence the only eight years. She also apologized profusely with sympathetic excuses, a mercy getter in Japan. This particular incident is especially brutal, callous and cruel. A normal mother, even in negligent death of a child, could not have left a three old child neglected for a week with hardly anything to eat! Couldn't she make arrangements with her parents or with somebody that would care for her child? The boyfriend sounds suspicious, too.

Posted in: Nathan Chen wins figure skating gold; Kagiyama takes silver, bronze for Uno See in context

Hanyu is still the best in my books. Every athlete will have their demise someday and will have to retire. Figure skating is a sport that is brutal on your body and mind due to countless jumps, twists and spins during long, grueling practices. It will eventually take its toll for early retirements at early ages. I'm sure Chen will win more gold in the future, but he couldn't hold a candle to Hanyu's talents and artistry. Chen will never come close to what Hanyu has ment to a whole country and it's people. And of course the NHK commentators talk about Hanyu even after defeat. That is who the Japanese want to hear about, not Chen.

Posted in: Have we been making pancakes wrong this whole time? Japan’s Zen-Noh shares the best technique See in context

Thanks. No matter what I do, my pancakes don't come out right. The article should have mentioned the appropriate skillet and oil that should be used to get that fluffy, perfectly round restaurant look. Doesn't matter how great your pancakes are if they get stuck and broken up! Another issue is adding baking powder to the mix. I must have a sensitive tongue, I could taste that awful bitter taste, yuk!

To use water, milk or plant based beverages, that is the question. The texture seems a little crispy when I use water, is it my imagination? I think making the perfect pancake needs skill, which I obviously don't have.

So, what else is new? They give us tons of sympathetic excuses for the rise of cost, but executives' salaries, bonuses and pensions seem to go up, too.

I'm sure that Chris Brown isn't your epitome of a model citizen, but the Jane Doe isn't the brightest star, either. Goes on his private yacht and enters his private bedroom. He probably didn't even have to drug her. Now she wants 20 mil! Goldigger, her and "If I only had a brain", him.

Posted in: COVID-19 restrictions on U.S. forces personnel in Japan to end Monday See in context

@jexan Japan doesn't glorify military personnel such as the US., perhaps because it doesn't involve itself in so many military situations and due to its militaristic past. Japan is a xenophobic country? Where do YOU live? No country is perfect but at least the Japanese treat foreigners kindly. You have to understand that Japan is a mono ethnic country. They are not accustomed to meeting foreigners, especially with non-asian features, hence their nervousness. But once they get to know you, and you show them proper respect, they can be the friendliest people. Also, speaking of xenophobia, look at the US and Britain. Racism and Karens galore!

Well, I guess being overpopulated with over one billion four hundred million people have something to do with such extreme measures. They used to have a one child limit, but now they have removed all limits. Perhaps to increase their military for the future. Get ready for the two billion mark there...soon!

Posted in: Prosecutors drop case against mother whose 1-year-old daughter, left in car, died of heatstroke See in context

It is very rare for police in Japan to let a death by negligence slide no matter how unintentional the situation is. The justice department must have concluded that the mother was innocent after their assessment of her case and testimony. There is more here than what the article has revealed. People just don't get away with irresponsible death here by just being quiet. Also, Americans who criticize the Japanese justice system should reflect on the judicial failures in their own country. We don't allow violent criminals to be released on the streets again into the civilian population, no matter what, even for covid. And your gun laws are hideously atrocious! Every day people are being killed by powerful guns in the US because they are available to virtually anyone. Is it a small wonder that you enjoy living in Japan?

Obviously the landlord did not employ a realtor to manage his tenants. They're quick to inform you if you fall behind in rent or any issues regarding your abode. Hard to believe five years of not getting rent money and not arousing curiosity.

What about the stench from the decomposing body?He must have been pretty isolated!

If that happened in the U. S., it wouldn't even make it in the local news. The best advice from being a victim of violence, hate crimes and Karens are from the Americans, they are accustomed to it.

If Taiwan ever becomes independent, I'm sure China will make their own island on their so called territorial waters. Anyway, applause for 7-Eleven for making a stand in their belief! Much more than I can say for the Olympic committee.

As there are fewer twenty year olds year after year, they should be able to enjoy and celebrate their youth. They even have to wear masks, especially the young women with prettied up faces and beautiful kimonos. Too many old politicians that have forgotten what youth was like control Japan with restrictions. Respect to the Old Day out number the seijin no hi nowadays.

With her millions and fame, she doesn't need to play if she doesn't want to. I, like many of you, don't have that luxury. Maybe she'll take off for not being able to choose her right tennis outfit next time.

Although he will most likely get off lightly by the law, his name has gone public. In a small community such as Japan, news of his crime will spread rapidly. Disgrace and dishoner will fall on himself, employment and family. The ultimate sentence. He will pay dearly for his crime through shame that he committed.
