    If I get the stapler stuck, she’ll say, ‘How inconsiderate of you! You’ll never be popular with women.’ So I mutter something dumb, and she says, ‘Are you a man, or not?’ If I’m slow with an assignment, she’ll say, ‘Are you like that in bed too?’

    Granted, that’s annoying rather than harassing –

    The write of this article should do a little better research and understand that this IS harassment too. Change positions and if it was a guy saying that to a female subordinate they would have the right to make a claim against him for sexual harassment.

    The writer promulgates the problem by making light of a serious problem. This is going to worse as well as more women are promoted to positions of power.

    Imports were down 1.5% to 6.65 trillion yen as imports of crude oil and coal fell.

    1.5% is a drop in the bucket and people should expect worse as winter comes.

    Why can't they follow Abe's vision?

    This IS Abe's vision, he's just as bad as the rest and only views the women in his cabinet as window dressings.

    If Abe ACTUALLY had some vision he would have invited the 36 year old Tokyo Assembly women initially heckled to run the department.

    Yukawa is listed on the website of Tokyo-based private military firm PMC as its chief executive.

    A new index ranks Japan as the most efficient among Asian countries in turning the building blocks of creativity into tangible innovations that benefit their economies and people

    If this is so then why is Japan's economy still in a funk......

    Japan has lots of universities

    Compared to where? North Korea?

    If they had a lot of money for lunch it was probably from their savings or they want to buy something else after school.. it's common sense..

    HS kids here & savings? Outside of their yearly otoshi-dama just where in the heck do they get their money from? You assume much, while some may have jobs most HS kids here do not, and their money comes from their parents.

    It's common sense.

    Lowering taxes to attract businesses is the smart move, but it needs to be supported by building proper infrastructure.

    You have to realize that this has to be done at the prefectural and national level and would need legislation as well. Local communities taxes are pretty much set, what they could do is provide land and infrastructure support.

    War with Japan is war with NATO.

    Do you even know what NATO stands for? Japan is not a member of NATO and stand little chance of ever being a member. It would be a war with ANZUS

    The decline of human civilization.

    If this is the decline of human civilization then we as humans have been in decline for literally thousands upon thousands of years.

    And episode like this is the random act of an idiot

    1,539 Chinese of the same age range in five cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Shenyang and Xian.

    Take this poll with a serious grain of salt! With a population of over 1 BILLION people a poll like this is meaningless, the only purpose is to stir up more crap.

    And pray tell why haven't people gotten action against the "noisy" bosozoku?

    This is just one more thing that is going to continue to happen with an aging population. Where is the omotei-nashi?

    That's right, omotei-nashi (hospitality) only counts when it's not in YOUR neighborhood!

    Until these communities realize that it isn't the free cow, or free school lunches that will attract people to their areas they will always have problems.

    Find incentives that include stable employment, and the lure of the countryside might seem more attractive.

    What "young" person in their right mind would move them and maybe their family to a country town that has literally nothing to offer in the way of schools, employment, etc etc etc.

    They should have been worrying about this decades ago, but typical of Japan they wait until the last minute to start picking teeth and make that annoying sucking sound.

    12,000 seems excessively long... I'd like to see a review about it in one of these JT articles. Is it indeed fluff? Is it actually to the point and detailed?

    For a period of 64 years during which saw the world over-turned and the "god" Emperor brought back down to earth, going from the "ruler" of a country to a figure-head, seeing a nation torn apart and rebuilt.....12,000 pages could very well be way, way, way, too short.

    200 million yen? 2 HUNDRED MILLION YEN..

    And what's the big deal? That is roughly $2 Million (US) for a 12,000 page historical record that has taken nearly 25 years to be produced, or $80,000 per year.

    I suggest you do a little research on just how much time and effort goes into an archive of this volume and from a historical point of view, without reading it yet, that really is not much money in the bigger scheme of things, and probably justified if it helps to set the record straight.

    The record confirms that Hirohito said in 1988 that he had stopped visiting the controversial Yasukuni Shrine because it had added Class A war criminals to those enshrined there, Kyodo said. His last visit to Yasukuni was in 1975. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the shrine last December, sparking official protests from China and South Korea.

    So if the Emperor decided that it was no longer right for him to visit Yasukuni what makes Abe and the other bobble-heads in the government think that they know better?

    In all seriousness though, why on earth would you want to put your hands on a complete and utter stranger in the first place?

    Never been to a Japanese snack, soapland, cabaret, or club before?

    t's not due to Abenomics. It's due to the tax hike, which all the major parties had demanded and was in the works long before Abenomics.

    Dude you need to do some research, Abe made this a part of his economic recovery plan and HE is the one that decided to implement the tax hike. HE could have said NO, but HE decided it was in the best interest of the "government" not the people mind you, that the tax was increased.

    Double DOH....

    Japan’s economy slammed on the brakes as the country raised its sales tax for the first time in 17 years in April.

    DOH........I hope someone would have Abe do the ice-bucket challenge with a load of bricks.
