    I take trains VERY rarely in Japan, and when I do it is always annoying. The only saving grace is when some tasty bird gets on, but with the aging populous, that is becoming a rarity.

    ^Yeah, while I do agree with a lot of the stuff that has been discussed on here, I am very close to a Japanese woman who has recently retrained as a care assistant, and I resent the comments which claim care work to be a last resort for the lowest skilled in society. The woman I know worked very hard to retrain, and puts absolutely everything she has into her job. So back off with those kind of comments; they are out of order.

    I used to enjoy getting the trains here when I was new to the country and knew little about the culture here.

    Now I hate it, as it is basically the same as sitting in a sweltering tin can with the most humourless, lifeless people on the planet.

    This is not a big deal. Just a sign of how effective globalisation is. It changes nothing. The West will remain the West, and the East will continue playing catch up of our way of life, no matter what colour the people are, involved in either side of the developments.

    CrisGerSan; LOL.

    Regarding the article; Good news this! I was at the mass partnering in Brighton in the UK years back and it was a great day for all involved.

    Yeah, if the coding giant that is Google can only just get it kind of working, some rubbish Docomo programming is not going to get anything close.

    This is going to be absolutely awful.

    What the actual what.

    This story is full of glaring Japanese-ness.

    Yeah, I agree with all the above.

    I have worked in Japanese offices for going on 8 years now, and the average worker does very little. They seem to find every single way to stretch the most mundane and simple of task over a giant amount of time, involve as many people as possible, etc., when said task could be done by a single person who actually worked a bit, in a fraction of the time.

    The results they are getting are demonstrably rubbish too, given the state of the economy and the take-over of various sectors from foreign business.

    And yes, anybody playing this game of overtime to impress the boss is a moron; they will be sacked / laid-off just as quickly, and with seemingly no reason, just like the rest of us.

    Whatever. Nothing is offensive. We live in post-modern times, and if you can't get with the program, the rest of us are not going to wait for you to catch up.

    Those who get offended by things like this, SHOULD be offended.

    I am not a fan of Gangnam Style, but that is beside the point, and I feel I am able to still comment.

    The Japanese are consciously ignoring it. Why? Because there is not a hope in hell of anything this spontaneous and ironic coming out of Japan's pathetic music industry ever. Sure, they churn out a lot of stuff and it sells, but on the world scale, it is utter throwaway trash. They are creatively anaemic and this is rubbing their noses in it, by the one nation they wish would not.

    @sandiegoluv; I will tell you why the Japanese always ask the same questions... because they have absolutely no other frame of reference for anything more interesting.

    4000 violations? Ha. I see that many myself every year on my commute, and I only go about 5km. The average Japanese bicycle rider breaks the law every single time they ride their bike. This figure is a massive misrepresentation of the problem.

    No TV Out on this is a major downer. Would be interested other wise...

    And that comment about having to type your credit card number in on a mobile device... Haha, that is not how it works. You just sign in once with your Amazon, Rakuten or whatever, and order with 1-click. Simple. I do it all the time.
