Posted in: Lam says Chinese military could step in if uprising gets bad See in context

Sadly the World would not dare to "fight" (doesn't mean war) for small HK against big China as China is an Important trade partner and would be a very dangerous enemy same like russia when they took over the Krim.

And as sad as it is, everyone knows that HK will "fall" sooner or later.

No you can not just take pictures of people just like that at least in Europe it is forbidden as you have your personal rights and new European law makes this even harder then it was already !

as I said only if you want to take a Panoramic picture or something like this it is more or less okay if there is someone in the pic but if you focus on a person withouth his/her permission you do a criminal act.

Posted in: Foreign tourists in Kyoto reminded of etiquette via smartphones See in context

WTF is wrong with the people commenting here ?

So you guys think it is okay to take pictures of people withouth asking ? If I am not mistaken this is forbidden pretty much everywhere in the world as everyone has the rights on his/her picture and usually it is only allowed if the Pic doesn't especially show you but a group of people or a Panoramic view and you just "accidentaly" are in it.

Same as trespassing ... forbidden everywhere, in some countries they would just shoot you !

and destroying the property or disrupt the order because of lieing on the street or whatever isn't something you are supposed to do anywhere in the World not just Japan.

even tourists should be forced to use common sense ! and if they don't do they have to pay up or in the worst case go to prison for a few days plus get on a red list to not be allowed to enter the country again.

(not talking about accidentaly doing something which could be seen as wrong but stuff that is common sense and pretty much the same in most parts of the world .... )

I did the game testing a little bit over a year ago and it wasn't bad ...

not the best wage but I could play games before they got released and hat nice coworkers and even the team leaders were super nice.

Also tried the english teacher route but it was hard, especially as I had no training in beeing a Teacher at all, still was a nice time with the kids ^^

@Mr Kingpling

Why would the comments be different ?

The "kid" is 17 and even though the law says something different, "kids" in this age are usually well aware of sexuality and stuff and he knew what he was doing. If a girl does the same she might be titled as a bitch but still most people wouldn't criticise the guys all to much I think

Posted in: Disputing Koizumi, new industry minister calls no-nuclear power policy 'unrealistic' See in context

I don't realy like nuclear power plants as they are so dangerous BUT I think he isn't completely wrong ... Japan uses an incredible high ammound of Energy but they don't have many means to create the Energy they need and buying would be very expensive plus you can easily be attacked by neighbours cutting of the Power ...

But both of them are right they NEED to find a better way but right now there is no better way so they hadrly have much choises.

If they would tell all the big cities and shops to turn off their lights in the evening everyone would be angry but that might be the only option except for buying more and more if they don't want nuclear power plants

Posted in: Father's story about parenting on a train highlights Japan’s hidden prejudice against male parenting See in context

This is not only in Japan ...

Actually when I was in Japan I was "asked" if I could teach a first grade for a month as a substitude and I was rather "scared" as most of the Kids in class were Girls ...

Here in Germany most people would suspect a Male working with little girls to be a pedophile molester who only does the job to get close to the little girls so I asked the other teachers and some Japanese friends if there is anything I need to be carefull about but they were all rather relaxed and said there is no problem at all.

Some of the girls got realy touchy and I tried my best not doing anything which could look bad anyways but there were no problems at all.

Posted in: Seoul businesspeople taking critical look at anti-Japan rallies See in context

"I hate Abe. Abe should think about our feelings," Choe Jong Seong, a 21-year-old male university student said. "Everything stems from the fact that Japan colonized Korea. As prime minister, Abe should first apologize to us before attacking us."

Wow awesome you hate Abe who wasn't born at that time because someone got misstretened by someone else 80 years ago ? that's really awesome logic.

Maybe she should hate herselfe because most of not all Japanese have at least some % korean blood as LOTS of Koreans migrated to Japan over 1000 years ago ... if they insist of history and all then why not going back 1000+ years so it is her own ancestors fault all this happened -.-V

Choe said his grandfather had been born in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula and after World War II, he was forced to live separately from his father.

So umm ... yeah ... so how did Japan actually separate Korea ? wasn't it Russia and America who did id

Posted in: South Korea marks 'comfort women' memorial day See in context

Man really how can anyone life in the past like that ?

They acted like idiots in the war yes true but they paid compensation already and no matter if they say that their formet government sucked or not they had a government which they voted for and which was in control at the time of the agreement so it is valid !

As others said, there is hardly anyone alive who was born at that time and those who are were probably very very yound and didn't even think about comfort woman at all.

Why would I beg the grandchild of someone my grandpa hit in the face for forgiveness ?

I am kind of pissed about the same stuff here in Germany, people get more and more on the right wing because they are angry for still beeing called evil nazi and are recommended to say sorry and pay pay pay pay pay everywhere in the world because they are so evil ... hell this is long time in the past -.-V

Was just about to order then I saw the price tag oO

~6500Y for this is absolutely overpriced no matter if it is ghibli or not especially as it doesn't look very big.

There is some "famous?" chain (only know them from Kyoto and Okinawa though) doing custom made music boxes (some with ghbili music but as far as I know not with changing soundtracks) for MUCH less.

thanks for the info, but there would still be the question for people like me who don't know it if even if he really "only" wanted to get the crows ... is it allowed in Japan to kill crows just like that ?

I guess withouth a proper licence in europe it would not be allowed.

Ex_ResToday 02:55 pm JST

Countermeasures huh?

In this case, meaning the South Korean government escalate anti-Japanese sentiment and furor throughout Seoul and the rest of South Korea,

It seems to me that if anybody disagrees with Japan, or does not give Japan it's own way, then they are accused of being anti-Japanese.

Perhaps it is Japan that has become the bully.

Japan must realise that the era of playing sweet little victim is coming to an end.

wtf ? when did Japan play victim ?

And there is a Contract and Money was paid as they accepted that they did something wrong even though I guess they might never have said that they are sorry? (dunno)

It is like some guy stays in front of your house with fire and a fork in his hands and demands you pay him x ammount of money because your gandpa hit his grandpa in his face before you were born -.-V

Of course he doesn't want the Relocation as it is planned yet ...

They are about too chop of lots of the Northern Forest on Okinawa Honto with all the old Trees and many animals and stuff ... they are destroying the whole nature there while the soil on the Bases is already drained in oil and whatever the military left in there.

If they would only close Futenma withouth destroying the whole northern part of the Island he probably would be happy.

Lately Okinawa get a high ammount of Tourists from China and Korea (it is increasing a lot from what I have seen the last few years) so they don't need the bases anymore to survive (still would hurt some shops and such sadly)

Posted in: Japan to decide on Aug 2 to remove S Korea from preferential treatment list See in context

Japan is doing the right thing ... I wouldn't give someone prefferential treatment after he hit me in the face either.

In normal friendships this also happens, I get into a fight with my friend and whoever starts it says sorry and maybe offers an icecream or whatever as a sorry. If he would come back to me years later and tell me that even though I gave him the ice and everything was fine for a while he can't stand me anymore again and I need to give him much more stuff he shouldn't wonder if I would be pissed.

Well in Japan the greater good goes above one person so it makes sense.

If one Person causes many many people to get into trouble then this one is a bad person and needs to be removed from the society ...

You know, now that the guy killed himself his familiy needs to pay lots of money because of what he did even though the Family would probably have enough trouble already.

This sounds like Moon is actually threatening Japan ...

Japan is doing the right thing and I doubt that the WTO will actually have a problem with what Japan is doing as they are now just treating S-Korea the same as everyone else instead of giving them special rights so no problem at all.

If S-Korea think they need to start another "war" because they want to get some more money again then bring it on, doubt it would help them in the slightest.

Sadly it is the same as the Nazis did, just shouting bad stuff about others and you get lots of people behind you. Talking it out in a proper manner doesn't get you any attention at all.

If they stay home and won't travel to Japan anymore it wouldn't be a bad thing as the Koreans aren't much better then the Chinese when it is about manners ...

Those people are so stupid, if you look at the picture they all look like they haven't even been born when this was settled more then 60 years ago ! now they come up and protest, that's so stupid. I don't get what they gain from this -.-V

Japan should stop selling stuff there and just use the new JEFTA tready and ship all their stuff to Europ ... probably a much bigger Market then South Korea

Posted in: Abe says no need to raise sales tax beyond 10% for decade See in context

Sorry but really ?

I know that for Japanese it sucks (for me it was paradise when I worked in Japan and only paid 20% income tax plus 8% sales tax)

Japan has the highest debt per Capita ....

Here in Germany income tax is at a maximum of 47% if I am not mistaken plus 19% sales tax ... that's a whooping 66% tax while Japanese have a maximum of 28? oder 30? all together so less then halv.

Of course the Companies would need to pay more if taxes get highered to much but it is not the Worlds end to pay a little bit more taxes to help your Country stay strong.

Uh well yeah I doubt that tracking your steps helps at all, it is just that people who do that out of their own will probably "try harder" to walk more and get more steps while others who don't care about this wouldn't buy this stuff.

It is like saying that people who do sports at least once a week are better in sports that people who don't / people who do sports move more then people who tend to sit on the sofa and watch tv ...
