If the Japanese could speak English I wouldn't have a job. Happy to keep the status quo.

most pachinko places are korean owed in Kitakyushu. I should know, I live here. Probably former customers did this and I bet the owners suspect who.

Posted in: First gay wedding held at Tokyo Disney Resort See in context

Tokyo Disney Resort is a place for children not for gay couples. Maybe money is the real issue here. Marry fine, just do it where children won't be seen.

Posted in: Beijing marathon reverses decision to bar Japanese runners See in context

Good that Japanese runners can now enter this event, although how enjoyable it will feel is open to question. As a former runner, if I wasn't really welcome I wouldn't enter. Just me.

Posted in: Truck driver arrested after rear-ending vehicle, killing 9-year-old boy See in context

as far as seat belts are concerned, I won't move the car or start the engine til the kids are strapped in. works well in summer, with no AC. As far as the truck drivers excuse, I believe it. I've taken my eye off the road for a second and could have been in trouble. scary. sad accident.

Posted in: Fukuoka cop arrested for taking bribes from crime gang See in context

I live in Kitakyushu. There's been a 'war' going on between the cops and the yakuza, plenty of arrests, and incidents. What started it was the shooting of a retired cop by the yakuza about 5-6 months ago. Unmarked cop cars everywhere, it is fair to say the cops are fighting back. And now they find one of their own has betrayed them, I'm not that surprised if the guy has gambling debts(speculation).
