when I think of that hotel having been there numerous times I cannot help but think of the old farts running this country. Good riddance to that era.

on the train, in a coffee shop, waiting in cash register line, or any other scenario where i do not want to talk to strangers and based on my 15 years in japan they certainly don't want to talk to me,,,

John-san, living simple is living good. Seems like you found the secret to happiness without the expat baloney.

Interesting that the Tokyo police found this guy suspicious enough to harass and may have inadvertantly saved a girl or boy from a similar fate in Tokyo, but Osaka police near Neyagawa Station did not find two young kids hanging out all night suspicious enough to do anything about, or two weirdos in a van parked nearby.

@strangerland: "chemical castration"??? How about going lawyer on him like the lawyer who got his whole salami chopped off with hedgeclippers last week...
Anyways this guy is beyond redemption I am sorry to say. Time for the noose.

It is funny as I have lived in Japan more than 15 years the same issues keep recycling with different facts,,, Where is Arudou Debito?!!!

Is this really racism? Are Japanese a race?
Seems more like xenophobia, which in my opinion is based on culture as well as features. Everyone should know Japanese are mongrels just like the rest of us.

They could also go Mumbai and allow passengers to ride on the roof and train surf to work.
Posted in: To root out the problems of groping and false charges, fundamental efforts, such as reducing congestion on trains and courts carefully examining all the facts, are needed.

There is an easy solution to ameliorate the miserable congestion, which is variable pricing. Let the early birds get discounted passes that they can use until 7 am and after 7 pm; make tickets more expensive during peak.

The blacklist companies will take this as an opportunity to make the typical 5 day work week 10 hours a day as an option and the herd will accept that. Yeah!

Well he should have left when he could,,, either he is an evil genius, think Lex Luther, or a bumbling bugger who just couldn't handle the explosive growth of his bitcoin enterprise. In any case, I reckon his Japanese is improving by the second thanks to his cellmates.

And where were the police? They usually patrol and should find runaway kids and take them into custody. Still even bad parenting, juvenile delinquency, or poor policing does not excuse the rotten bastards who hurt these kids.

Well at my company we are all demoralized by the 50 yo senior managers. They control everything and have no proclivity to change. I have considered legally changing my name to Brain Dead.
I also recently spoke to a mid-20's JP woman interviewing for jobs. She looks disgusted. At the interviews the managers want to hear that she will be 100% devoted to the job and willing to put in unpaid overtime. That is the reality in the trenches.
