Posted in: What’s the best part of Tokyo to live in, and why? Survey gives the top six picks See in context

The east side of Tokyo is much better than any of these "fashionable" places. Fewer people, cheaper and without pretension.

The duffers said they would only make 3 seasons max. Seasons 2 and 3 were just rehashes. As usual money talks and good original ideas get warped and stupid.

If I did want to get drunk with the masses, I'd go to Inokashira Park in Kichijoji.

Clearly you have never been to Inokashira Park during hanami season. It is one of the worst for drunken debauchery

Posted in: Japanese soccer team receives worldwide praise for behavior at Asian Cup See in context

It's an idea that the Japanese media love to push, especially in the lead up to coming world sporting events, that Japanese people are so clean, and that Japanese thinking is so wonderful. When the cameras are around, Japanese people are very good at roleplaying, but when the cameras are gone the fairy dust goes too. Although closing the borders to the rest of the world might have helped their culture to develop in certain ways, it also gave them far too much time for navel gazing, which the local media love to exploit endlessly. Have you ever seen a person from another country (they all get heaped into the same basket) say anything negative about Japan on Japanese television?

They were more than likely selected for the purpose of rape and then they tried to justify their crime with hideous religious absurdity

Another case of mental illness. Japanese families and workplaces are lame at admitting or trying to get help for such people.

If anything, this storm in a teacup might show the Japanese how Korean people actually feel. But that is unlikely as anyone who is a "fan" of such garbage wouldn't know much about history or politics, let alone care less.

It's a good wine, but I've had so much better for less the price.

No. It is refuse. The only reason it attracts fanfare is because the Japanese media will show up for anything related to publicity for local companies, and that the local importers were conned, probably quite easily, back in the bubble days, and the fact that anyone who buys it isn't doing so because they like it but because they think it might give them some sort of status.

Posted in: Australian by-election count goes to the wire See in context

Good result. The liberal party need to purge themselves of the toxic right before they can lead again. They will be wiped out at the next election which is the best chance for them to get rid of dead wood, aka Abbott. If only there were elections for the media so we could get rid of Murdoch's slavish groupies

Posted in: Australia considering embassy move to Jerusalem: PM See in context

This is the last, desperate ploy for the government to hold on to power. They think their constituents are mugs and they will be severely punished for it at the coming by-election and election. Unfortunately the idiots responsible for this mess such as Abbott will retain their seats and cause more destability for future governments.

Posted in: Ex-Morning Musume singer Yoshizawa admits drinking more than 3 cans of ‘chuhai’ before hit-and-run See in context

She won't do any time in the slammer but her "career" is finished. Hopefully her husband has a job. It's been good knowing you hitomi.

Posted in: X Japan leader Yoshiki says he will never stop trying to crack U.S. market See in context

Even if he stops wearing makeup, which went out in the eighties, he will never be popular outside of Japan. The difference between Japan and the rest of the world, in terms of the entertainment industry, is that in normal places the fans decide what is good. In Japan the advertising/entertainment industry decides what is good and the "fans" abide slavishly.

Good on them for their persistence though.

The death penalty does not work simply because it is not a tool. It is the most severe form of punishment and is more than appropriate for scum like this but he only killed one child so he will spend 10 years eating up taxpayer's money before getting a second chance

These kids are twats. Most are but they still need to be shamed so that they can avoid doing such stupid stuff in the future. If I were on holiday and it were ruined by such twats my response would be a lot more physical

You say that neither are success stories but at any point in history one is more preferable than the other. Lets face it, political parties are led by leaders and filled with quite a lot of bench-warmers.

they are 100% guaranteed to still disappoint and fail.

And what is your expectation of the opposition? Labor will spend more on giving money to the dole-bludgers, more on supporting the unions which are the cause of the high-priced services in Australia. 50 years ago the Labor party helped to bring Australia forward but in this day and age they are dinosaurs. These days governments are just businesses. Would you rather have a successful businessman run your business or a former union stooge?
