Posted in: Aide to Kishida says he would hate to see LGBT couple See in context

Another reminder that Japan is perhaps the most reactionary society in the developed world.

Developed world countries don't seem as archaic as Japan when it comes to topics such as this.

Some countries do applauding his words: China, Russia !

Ah yes, that old Japanese chestnut - bring up China or Russia and hope our own ineptitude doesn't get noticed.

Of course. But there's also a community of expats in Japan that hates and rejects everything Japanese with a passion, to the point where I'm wondering why they are all still here if everything is so silly and stupid and horrible.

Absolutely. Agree with this, but maybe it's hard to leave.

I'd grown tired of Japan and so left. The 'we are so different and unique and sugoi' crowd had grated on me. There are things I miss, but not enough to return to live.

Enjoy setsubun all

Always ready to blame everyone but themselves in Japan. A foreign scapegoat being the most favoured.

The only 'good' thing that came out of the Olympics was that due to the pandemic, these bloodsucking parasites weren't fully able to blow their own trumpet as much as they would have.

So so dishonest

Posted in: 72% of foreigners in survey say they’ve been disappointed by bad breath in Japan See in context

Japanese people are also conscious about not opening their mouths very wide when they laugh, because they think it’s impolite. So there’s less pressure to take care of your breath, and so attitudes about oral hygiene can become lax

What absolute nonsense. Just excuses excuses.

Definitely agree about the breath article. Worst breath in the world. Like it or not. Loooooool

Posted in: Foreign entries into Japan surge 12-fold in 2022 See in context

Why the obsession of reporting about foreign entries into Japan? As far as I know it doesn't happen in other countries.

I've asked many times but never got a proper answer.

I suppose it's the need to feel that they're loved. It's like the numerous TV shows that go wild about foreigners saying something nice about Japan.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. That's the way it is.

Sure. If you were living in the stone age.

Kishida is bang out of line. A rubbish leader with backwards views

Thing is, if Japan was actually helping Ukraine in a genuine way, rather than just to appear supportive to the rest of the world, I'd condemn Mori

But they aren't, so I won't.

@ossan and desert, you sound like you work for the Japanese government. I've never heard so much pro Japan sabre rattling in many a year.

If Japan is so great and so advanced in military equipment, why do they hide behind America? No amount of links and technical talk can persuade people that Japan doesn't.

I fear for the world with an active Japan in the military world. Don't trust them at all.
