    The incentive is to work hard and get ahead. I pay way more taxes than I used to, but I also make way more money than I used to. And I work hard, because I want to make even more money, even if I'm going to have to pay more taxes.

    Stranger,

    Sounds like you have bridged the gap of income/revenue(if self employed) which puts you over roughly Y20million a year before you do your tax returns, if so good for you. The problem for me & lots of others is to get there because when you get over Y10million its gets rather punitive & you wonder why the hell should I bother, its becomes a real challenge to get past that banging your head against all the various govt departments that want a piece of you.

    Your better off staying under Y10million if you cant get up to & past Y20million. This really STOPS people & small businesses from even WANTING to prosper.......

    And there is a reason why about 70% of J-companies NEVER pay any income taxes for decades running, its utterly disgusting & keeps Japan weak.

    You got to admit when you have most posters on this thread PAY more in income taxes than 70% of J-companies, clearly there is plenty wrong here.

    And this new inheritance stuff........... insane, they are going after EVERYONE not just trying to prevent the rich from grabbing it all up, its not going to end well & I hate the feeling we are being trapped here.

    And as I said moving elsewhere............ watch out you may well get nailed there as well.

    I am all for fair & am proud to pay my taxes, but seeing the waste & thieving going on by govt doesn't really make my day

    Admittedly a bit difficult to go this time, however he still could have & simply not attended the STUPID parade being planned, that's such a farce, China is only going to look STUPID if the commies pretend they defeated Japan in WWII

    abe staying put guarantee's things get more difficult wrt to China, not Japans fault, but they still get worse.....

    Oh well.

    Folks thinking you can just go back to where you were born, tax free had better be checking with tax consultants, you may well find $$$ sent back will get hit for some taxation, govts are getting greedy EVERYWHERE & they are now actively targeting everybody not just the rich.

    This is beyond depressing! I am thinking its time to invest in a couple good tents & just say to hell with the rat race, you just cant get ahead & if you do you WILL get nailed for it

    Whats the bloody point of working hard anymore...........?

    And meanwhile govts are spending & racking up debt at crazy rates, this is NOT going to end well!

    “We have not poured water (on the warehouse) because it could make the situation worse, depending on what is inside,” he said.

    A little tasteless barb at China here...........come on enough with the tacky reporting, we say plenty of this crap with the recent ferry fire, a LOT of not so subtle hints how it wasn't like the Korean ferry disaster, GROW UP!!

    Japan why the HELL are you so willing to play Russian Roulette!!??!!??

    And I have a feeling there is more than one bullet in the chambers!!

    If there is another Fukushima the costs for the entire country are likely to far exceed what Fukushima is going to cost, seems like nuke plants are Japans new kamikaze!!! INSANE

    As many have mention Japan's "apologies" are usually weak, vague, misleading & insincere..............that said I think most in the world would have accepted these mealy mouthed blurbs if:

    1 Japan didn't always immediately deny history. 2 Politicians etc wanting to recind the most recent "apology" 3. whitewashing & out & out lying about history, this is a BIGGIE!

    etc etc etc you get the idea, BUT most Japanese DO NOT get this & that's because their govt & media have been lying to them for 70yrs and counting!!

    Japan you cant blame China & Korea, this is 150% MIJ!

    And this colossal denial has & continues to do tremendous harm to Japan, Japan's foolish FALSE pride is doing slowly ruining itself & for WHAT!!!

    Hey J-boy!

    I have seen the writing on the wall for a long time, believe me! What I posted above idea wise dates back a decade plus for me ....

    That said, if ones ties are deep here & mine are, what can I say I love my wife, yeah sure she drives me nuts at times, and by extension I am connected to her family, admittedly my family ties for me from back home have less play.............

    And I run my own business, no work no pay.....that said I have been doing well, so I am alright so far.

    For me now to pull up stakes & bugger off would cause people I LOVE great pain, so......... I carry on, life isn't always crystal clear and/or fair.................

    Me I am trying to balance all this & still kick back on occasion & enjoy a great beer & a better scotch & hang with people I like...

    At times I question myself for sure BUT I am still ahead in the .......game...

    admittedly its tougher each year to stomach the way Japan is going, but I try to maintain a bit of a lead......

    I'm not sure its entirely fair to condemn Japan for preferring to face population decline than to accept immigration

    F4HA604,

    My oh my, do you really think Japan is FACING its issues of population decline???? If you do I have some swampland to sell you to build condo's & nuke plants on!!!

    Japan has & IS pretending these problems don't exist, its been head in the sand for around 30yrs doing nothing, that is NOT the same facing population decline!

    Aly.

    I wish you & your family luck, even without kids I don't think my wife would ever consider moving out of Japan to where I am from or somewhere neither of us have lived. She travelled a LOT before we married, English is good, but we aint young anymore, her Mom is on her own 600km away as my FIL passed a number of years ago......

    Not so easy to pick up & move, and despite my often biting posts I truly love Japan but it pains to see her screwing up so badly in so many many ways & that's why I am glad we have no kids, if I did the stress would be brutal & not sure the mrs & I could survive it, and then it would be even tougher for any kids. That said I would love to be proven horribly wrong & see Japan prosper immensely...............
