Is this designed for people who are too lazy to reach into their pocket and take out their phone? Who needs a smart watch that will most likely run out of battery and leave you wondering what time it is?

Most Japanese teachers I work with would struggle to get a decent score in TOEFL. It should be required to study abroad for 3-6 months for all teachers of Junior High and High School English.

Was this article sponsored by JT? Japan has some incredibly lax smoking laws compared to the EU, Australia and most US states. Cigarette are very cheap and heavily advertised here too.

This movie was not entertaining and had huge plot holes. I'm glad I went to see it on a discount day and only wasted 1000円. It was insultingly bad.

Torikizoku also offer very large glasses of about 700ml of kirin tanrei (not real beer but close enough) for 280円 and their Gin & Tonic uses Beefeater gin. You can have a cheap night out as long as you don't mind eating chicken and chicken offal all night.

There used to be a place in Gotanda that sold nama beer for 50円. The food was also quite cheap so even if we ate and drank our fill the bill usually came out at less than 2000円. I always wondered how that place made a profit.

North Korea should be building tractors instead of missiles. People here don't fear an attack as much as they fear that North Korea's 2nd hand Chinese missile technology will cause the missile to go off course and crash into a populated area.
