Politicians will do anything for a vote its pretty disgusting...
Yea I get it, So everything he does that is considered good is going to be for votes right? So I am assuming he's not allowed to do anything good? Can you please tell me where you got your proof that he's doing this for votes.

One of the biggest reasons why Japan has a long working hour is because...
companies don't have the extra cash to hire extra people so they put the responsibilities on the laborers.it's because they just can't find enough people to work. The shortage is real here with the growing population of old people and less young people. My advice is to Japan is to hire more foreigners with REAL pay.

Well, I learned one thing growing up. When people hate you people are going to hate you regardless of what you do. It does not matter what you explain or give people the most logical reason. If they hate, they going to hate and that's not going to change. So my suggestion is don't even waste time on those people. You can't change those people.

Seriously, what's up with everyone's deal with Abe. I honestly think he's doing a pretty good job. At least better than most previous primes ministers. All the stuff about "he's just trying to reel in votes." is just an personal/emotional assumption and you guys have absolutely no proof at all. Like think about it if you were in his shoes. What the hell can he do? Now If he chooses to decline to help the family, the same people are going to complain about "what a heartless prime minister, blah blah." He is actually one of the few leaders here to open up doors for foreigners and provide a huge amount of visas. And is actually trying to better up the economy. He's actually quite active and less talk for a politician.

You know thing with this death penalty for her age does not matter because even if the court does sentence her to death. She won't be hanged for at least another 10 - 15 years. so its basically sentenced to 15 years in death row prison for her age. Look at some of the notorious terrorist like Asahara shouko and other serial killers. They are still alive in prison today.

The average income salaries for two people are 489,000yen?? What a rubbish!!! I live in Osaka and I know people around my neighborhood that aren't even close to that number.
Really? You must live in some terrible neighborhood if that is the case. LOL
I live in Tokyo and that's about how much I make alone. and my neighbors make way more than what I make.
You see the difference? I think comparing your neighborhood stories is unrelative.

Hey so does this mean I am going to get arrested if I post an uncensored erotic material on FB in Japan?

What's messed up is his name is open to the public now. Even if all charges are lifted against him at court at the very least he's going get fired from his current company. because...you guys know how it works in Japan...

Why does everyone assume Japanese beef = a lot of fat?
majority of the beef here are not like that, you can definitely get lean only beef in japan as well.
And also don't automatically assume Japanese beef = high end expensive stuff. I have bought a piece of steak at my groceries for like 900yen which is only plus 100yen from US beef.

Good thing about Japan is its not like the U.S where they will ID every time. I know a 17 year girl who goes to the bar every other day and orders beer. So its not really meaningful in the first place. heck I was smoking a pack a day at the age of 15.

This actually happened to me when I was 14 over in the USA. Me and my mom left Japan when I was just 4. Therefore, when I came back to Japan at the age 14 (due to the fact that my mom got deported) I barely had any knowledge of Japan and the writing/reading system. One thing I can say is...it was really hard for me, really hard. My family didn't even have any money for me to go to a international school.

You know when I read articles like this...It doesn't feel like you live in 2017. Feels like we going backwards.

The Japanese government is so stupid. They keep paying and paying and paying.
Seriously, our first apology was at the san Francisco treaty during the 1950's to compensate for damaging costs over the pacific and Asian countries. South Korean and China didn't even attend the treaty even though many other countries did. They took the money anyways and they decided to use the money on "infrastructure" instead of giving the money to the victims. how sad is that...I bet those victims don't even know about compensation.

I don't get what the point is in investigating this case from Japan's prospective view and why Japan is so obsessed with the investigation. I would understand if one of Japan's ship was in the accident but this is between the US and the Philippines. Japan really didn't lose anything from this incident. its like investigating a case of murder over in China with an American guy being killed (its not any of Japan's business). makes no sense.

A lot of you are rumbling about how this is not going to work out. but look at the numbers, it is definitely getting better. You guys think Japan is bad with overtime work and harassment and other bad working environments right now? It was a lot worse during the 90's. Of course it is no where near decent yet but its getting better by the year. So I think 30% cut on suicides within the next 10 years is a realistic number.

Wow I can feel this country has been very busy. Which I think is a good thing. Abe and his team has a lot to do obviously.

First of all, how does the family not notice that she is pregnant. Wouldn't it be pretty obvious?

Michael Jackson: It usually takes 2 kills without any reasons to be sentenced to death. for example, raping 2 women and killing them usually results to the death sentence.

He's probably going to get the death sentence

I do not get why people work for these crap companies. Not all companies in Japan are like that. I for example start work at 8AM and get off at 5PM with 1 hour lunch break and like 20 minute X 4 smoke breaks. Has a nice lounge and a relaxation room. When companies mistreat their workers, people leave and go elsewhere. Therefore, bad companies lose their source of labor and it becomes harder for their workers and more people quit.

For a second I thought he was Trump.

He brought them in because they can be sold at a high price here. its actually common and if you ever wonder why some gangs have guns/bullets its because they get them from overseas or have a foreign military member sneak it in for them.

The North Korean communist is the biggest problem and is causing problems for their poor citizens. So yes I honestly think other countries should do more than just dialogue and sanctions. In worst case scenario...Military actions should take place to help the N.Korean citizens.

I thought Tanaka would be in the no.2 spot

You know a lot of you talk about poverty in Japan and how we should fix the internal problems first. but Poverty in Japan versus poverty in 3rd rule countries are different. Let me tell you about my family (Mom, my sister, and I myself) we were marked as poverty family because my mom made less than 2K a month. but that was on purpose because if we get marked as poverty, full rent was funded by the government which was 1K a month. I also know a family (mom & Daughter) + some guy living in the same house. They did not get married because they knew that if they get married they would not be able to take the full "poverty welfare package". So basically there is a mom + guy (dad of the daughter) in the family working full-time and taking advantage of the poverty system. So NO I do not think Abe should take care of the poverty issue in Japan because that's the main issue why this country is in so much debt. seriously this country is way too generous.
