More Cinderella Syndrome .. Japanese males don't have it in them and just refuse to love another man's child.

This has been coming for a while. America refuses or just can't make an economical car or even a decent standard car like the Toyota Corolla for that matter.

The Japanese Government has no idea how many companies that rely on imports are going bust because of the low yen. Why aren't they stepping in to help.

I enjoyed the Aichi-banpaku in 2005. I would go to this, and if any of my trips to Japan overlaps, I likely will.

That doesn't say much, you enjoy the park near Ueno station..

Posted in: Japan adds four new industries to skilled foreign worker visa See in context

"Skilled foreign workers are not coming to Japan. They’re heading for the U.S., Australia and other developed countries where they can find much better-paying jobs"

Exactly, the only ones coming to Japan are the low level workers that don't meet the skill set required to get jobs in other countries. As inflation grew in other countries, so do the wages to counter inflation and the cost of living. Japan's wages are still at the same level as they were 30 years ago in some industries. What was 250,000en/month 30 years ago is now $3500-4000/month in other countries so who would come to Japan to lose money? Only the bottom of the barrel level wants to come to Japan which isn't going to help the country.

In the meantime Japanese Immigration will turn a blind eye to the fake references getting approved flooding Japan with inexperienced workers lowering the quality of a once valued "Made in Japan" products and services. Proof of fake "experienced" workers coming thru Immigration can be found at the racehorse breeding farms around Shiga, Ibaraki and Hokkaido. These workers submitted references to Immigration stating 10 years of horse riding experience yet they have never ridden a horse before, hence the working at farms where there is no horse riding. Please feel free to visit these farms and see for yourself before commenting on no factual statistics.

Posted in: 52-year-old man indicted for raping teenage daughter between 2013 and 2016 See in context

Very common in Japan as the rape laws are no where near as strict as other countries, rapists know the laws better than the police and without a confession they have a get out of jail free card and repeat the crimes. Victims aren't willing to come forward especially when there is family involved because Japanese police refuse to get involved in personal matters. You only hear a fraction of the real numbers.

Posted in: Man arrested over sexual assault of 13-year-old girl at internet cafe last year See in context

Rape isn't a crime in Japan when the rapist can just pay the victim to drop the charges so they can rape again. How many times has "Mr Keio" gotten off rape charges just by paying the victim? In most countries when you break the law, money can't buy freedom. A judicial system is in place for a reason, to protect the people.

Posted in: 25-year-old man arrested for abducting minor after meeting her online See in context

"In Japan, taking in a minor without their parent's permission is legally considered abduction/kidnapping"

What part of the girl voluntarily using public transport alone, tells you she was taken? She went to meet him and texts will obviously reveal she understood the situation of going to meet a guy before leaving home. I hardly think they can throw the book at him for not taking her to Bikkuri Donkey then home to talk to her parents about why the lack of family communication led her to consult a stranger.

"Ohtani's 'perfect person' image could take a hit with firing of interpreter over gambling


What a stupid headline, what is he supposed to do? Keep a thief employed and risk losing more money. Name one company in their right mind that wouldn't fire a stealing gamble addict ?

Posted in: Gov't to require sex offense checks for those applying to work with children See in context

So the rest of Japan's serial rapist are free to rape as long as they don't wanna work at a school...Should be a Nationwide sex offender list covering all jobs, but that will never happen because half the police force and Government workers would be out of a job.

Posted in: Police to strengthen anti-stalking measures See in context

Smoke and mirrors, Japanese Police refuse to get involved in private matters. Nothing will change especially the mentality of the weak male species that is going to stab himself after he stabs her, I'd like to know what a restraining order (a piece of paper) does to help when a person is willing to die after stabbing an ex?

Posted in: Man arrested over sexual assault, robbery of woman in Nagano See in context

Why do they say "arrested" when they just let repeat rapist go because they can't remember doing it. It should bought in for coffee and an interview then set free to rape again. There are more sexual predators in Japan than Thailand because the Government refuses to adapt a sexual offender registry.

Posted in: Japan eyes up to 800,000 more skilled foreign workers over next 5 years See in context

Waste of time because Japanese Immigration officials haven't the English skills to read references and documents submitted when applying for a visa. Just take a look at the hundreds of Indian staff at the breeding farms in Hokkaido that submitted references with over 10 years of horse riding experience, they have never ridden a horse before and are shuffled out to the breeding farms where there is no riding, they are used for ground staff, paid more than the Japanese, take 2 months holiday a year, refuse to pay town taxes, drive around the town with no license because local Japanese police can't speak Hindi and basically are nothing more than cannon fodder.How is letting a fake "skilled" workforce going to help Japan when the quality of the workforce is getting lower and lower?
