I'm french and I can tell you that the TGV is maybe a little faster but its a lot less comfortable than the shinkansen ! There s no chance I can stretch my leg in a TGV, I can easily do it in a Shikansen. Just for that I prefer the Shinkansen to the TGV. ^^

Posted in: Japanese teach Parisiens about street tidiness See in context

japan needs more public bins, though. there are basically NONE. if it wasn't for convenience stores there would be nowhere to dispose of rubbish at all

totally agree, most of the time I had to keep my garbage on me a whole day before fiding where to trash them during my last visit here -_-

I'm living in Paris and since the ban of tabacco in public places, bars, cafe etc. you can find cigarette butts (tons of it) in front of all those places. I just hate smokers for this... >_< There are trash bins everywhere in this city!

Posted in: Japan goes into crisis mode for possible N Korea missile launch See in context

We just have to believe that the chance of being hit by missile debris is smaller than getting hit by a car.

The thing is that the chance of being hit by a car in Japan is quite high xD

Posted in: When I first arrived at Roissy airport, it was a shock to me, because Japanese people always dream of Paris as being a beautiful city. See in context

Roissy is not Paris at all but whatever.

Paris is, like many others, quite a dirty town, some places are very old and damaged but still... Paris is a very nice city.

Why is there no "e" in Jun?

Because Jun is a japanese first name and can be written with kanji, June can't.

Posted in: More women enjoying a night out alone See in context

Well I understand how these "o hitori sama" feel, its a real social problem for J women in this do-what-your-boyfriend-want-you-to. But still I think some of these women are just selfish or hypocritical.

But sometime there s no other choice but to go around alone and just have your fun doing what you wanna do. Thats just a pity that your friends/partner can't make some agreement to share good times.

Well I bet it depends of people, I don't have much fun or even not at all, being alone.

Posted in: More Japanese shunning the outside world See in context

That's a fact that japanese can't spell more than a few words in english. During my last trip I had the chance to "really" talk with only ten or so japanese and I remember those who were most talking did it in... french. Which really surprised me. I think many countries, even big ones, doesn't speak english much. I'll take France, Italy and Spain as an example... Anyway I don't think Japan is isolating itself from outside, the example of the language classes is not good from my point of view. Students just know how bad are their teachers and prefer to learn the languages via penpals/private schools.

Posted in: Butterflies See in context

Butterflies have a great lifestyle. Ever seen a butterfly that looked like it was in a hurry?

Yeah and "she" almost cut me in half ahah

And why are their moth cousins so ugly?

Thats how "Butterflies" become after living too long in "night life". Full of fur and ugly.

Well, it seems the guy had his hand on her shoulder to "help her" bow ...

Well she could have made a great move and finished him with a Ippon !

Seriously I wonder how those recruiters would manage with european students. I heard so many incredible interview stories here ^^ Those two exemples just looks like common things... J companies, it's (really) time to change.

Posted in: Science closing in on cloak of invisibility See in context

A couple years a go a saw an "invisibility cloak" made by japanese scientists, but I think the device was not working with the same kind of process. It was quite impressive thought.

Still I think this kind of technology is just too dangerous. And anyway, what is the point of being invisible? See and not being seen? Thats called spying!

I only see bad uses for this kind of device.

neverknow2 : I'm sure its because most of the JT readers come from States. I don't think China money will ever be the common currency, maybe Yen could or Euro.

Back to the topic ,I must admit that's an original way to promote a place for tourism !
