    WakarimasenFEB. 17, 2015 - 09:58AM JST is 1 meter a tsunami? surely just a little wave.

    2 totally different types of waves. A Tsunami occurs as a result of the movement of a high volume of water from the seabed to the sea surface. While your typical wave is generated by the wind.

    Countries in the pacific area suffered damage from tsunami waves that measured between 0.5M -1M in height after the 2011 earthquake.

    God forbid anything does happen to me. My partner already has my contact info to delete my account in the event of my death.

    Let the fool go. He'll only have himself to blame if he ends up wearing a orange jumpsuit in a video begging for the help of the government that he criticized for ''violating his freedom of speech''.

    The government have got this one right. The people who are wanting to go are either just plain stupid or they have screw lose inside their head.

    Baseball is played in Europe? Lived in Europe nearly my entire life and never heard of any European leagues or anything.

    Had flights booked for March with VA. Wasn't best impressed when I found out via Facebook that they decided to cancel the route. The fact that they didn't even bother to send out a email informing me of the cancelled route was the worst part of it all. Because they happily emailed me about a 5 minute change in departure time for a previous flight!

    BA from now on though because I refuse to pay the expensive prices that ANA charge.

    Abe would do well to issue a fresh apology.

    Why? Would you issue a fresh apology to someone who demanded one despite the fact that you've already apologised before? No, you move on and accept the apology which was already given. Something which SK and China are unable to do because they are constantly using Japan as a smokescreen to keep the citizens distracted from their eternal affairs.

    Pretty sure that Abe has already said that Japan won't backtrack on that apology. SK and China just whining like usual.

    Expensive? Come to Northern Europe.

    Parts of China can be difficult if you visit the rural areas, but in any reasonably large city someone will come over to help you out if you're having communication difficulties (often a university student). I've visited almost every country on that list (not Macau and not Vietnam), and in every country EXCEPT JAPAN the people were happy to at least TRY a bit of English and communication was achieved. I'd say that the biggest problem with Japan is the wide-spread attitude that the foreigner has to make an effort to speak Japanese and risk embarrassment, while the Japanese person doesn't have to try because they might not be perfect. It reeks of arrogance. Whatever happened to the customer being God?

    I've experienced the total opposite while in Japan. Whenever I looked lost, quite often Japanese people would come up to me and ask whether I needed help. I've also had Japanese, young and old, engaging in conversation with me.

    Growing up in Britain I was brought up to offer my seat to pregnant women or the elderly. So in the past this has caused some awkward occasions while in Japan.

    Thank god my partner doesn't have to worry about this.. She always buys her bras when we're back in Europe. Not because she doesn't trust Japanese manufacturers, but its just so damn hard for her to find a big enough bra for her bust size.

    Plastic junk food with no nutritional benefits. Thankfully both of my young daughters hate the taste of McDonalds, they'd rather eat homecooked food. This is thanks to me and my partner having a hands on approach with raising our girls, always giving them proper homecooked food everyday. If they want burgers we will buy the ingrediants needed to make our own burgers and we'll even make baked veggie chips.

    McDonalds should realize that trimming down the options isn't what is needed to improve sales. They need to trim down on all the fat, calories and the cheap products used to create this junk food.

    Your basis for this is on the idea that South Korea is not allowing freedom of the press? Sorry, Kari, but did you miss the fact that Japan has just allowed in a Secrets Law that allows the government to control all media? So, by your very definition Japan is even MORE like NK than South Korea is! Well done, KariHaruka. Might want to think about that a little, as others should, before saying any quelling of freedom of speech makes them the same as North Korea.

    smithinjapan, at what point did I mention Japan in my post? Why bring up a law that Japan has just enacted just to assume that I don't know about it or what my opinions are on it? Oh wait, I was just talking about SK being very similar to NK in denying freedom of speech by sending people to prison for anything that they don't agree with. Perhaps YOU should think a little before saying anything.

    Oh look, we have a one Korea that oppresses freedom of speech.

    SK you can try and pretend all you like to the rest of the world that you're a 21st century country. But the cracks in your falseness are starting to crack bigger and bigger, slowly revealing yourselves to be just like your NK brothers.

    Basically the things they get annoyed about are common annoyances among people in America and Europe as well....

    This is the fake Santa. The real Santa is from the North Pole, just north of Finland.

    The real Father Christmas lives in Korvatunturi Finland.
