I am sick reading news about this crazy Ishihara and Hashimoto. Fascist Japan is showing their real face with less power. I am sorry for the innocent Japanese that are unable to complain overtly about radiation and poisoning and public money misuse and inefficient rebuilding of earthquake areas.

Pukey2, you are right. Japanese women in Hong Kong are totally changed. They do not look like kawaii fake girls but adult women with strong will and intelligence dressing really with better taste. I love professional Japanese women that have decided to emigrate and follow a career. Hong Kong is one of their paradise. Not many Japanese male and female professionals I know are eager to come back to Japan. I am sorry for the pro Japanese and Chinese hater without knowing what life in Hong Kong looks like. But Hong Kong is the best place in Asia for stock market and it is more and more powerful after Japan radiation and economic crisis. For Westerners our place in Asia. We are more welcome than in Japan. Even immigration is effective and you do not feel lost in translation or "unwelcomed guest" like in Japan. I also guess that Noriko cannot beat Hong Kong and Chinese movie stars. The level of tarento in Hong Kong surpasses Japan. But for me South Korean actors and movies are the best in Asia.

Yes, Hong Kong is really better! I have lived for 8 years in Tokyo and it is overrated. It is not me that tells this but international reports and many expats including Japanese having formerly lived in Japan. A-san is very lucky. He will find a better lady here.

A-san is very lucky. Hong Kong rocks! It is better than Tokyo.. In Hong Kong there are really beauties and youngest tallest top model Asian women ready to go out with him. If a woman does not follow you she does not deserve you. From July they dated and she is not ready to travel abroad in a good place. Probably she was not very interested in him but only good dates in expensive Tokyo restaurants and hotels.

I highly fear cesium and strontium spread by Fukushima and entering the food chain. They deposit in bones for 40 years and can trigger bone cancer and leukemia. That's the ugly truth. Poor kids in Japan!

Something that surprised me a lot is that I could talk straightforwardly about politics and the Chinese system with the mainstream Chinese. Do you think that they are happy with their system? They pray for better changes and improvements. I have found many people with critical thinking coming from different social backgrounds. How many of you have had such conversation with Japanese people? I only had with two Japanese after a decade. But they were politicians and had lived abroad. But I guess they do not behave like that with fellow Japanese.

@Elbuda Mexicano Do you really think that Americans have freedom? Or Japanese have it?
My amazing experiences in China is that most people there don't really care about our systems, foreign countries and our ways of lives. Each time I travel to therefor long periods I see more and more smiling Chinese people and are becoming more and more capitalistic like Japanese a decade ago. Foreign brand shopping malls are giant than in Japan and they can buy better products and live better. It was not like that five years ago. China is developing really quickly. Yes, there are big social differences but the people seem to be happy to perform their social role. This has been the most interesting discovery. So I understand why foreign countries want to crush this and provoke turmoil. I have never seen so devoted working people in the world than Chinese. (Japanese make as if they work as I have experienced it for more than a decade... ) But is America, Japan or all the EU perfect? In particular America and Japan respect human rights? Have everybody the same opportunities? No system in the world is perfect.

Japanese beers are my last choice. Is water and all ingredients safe with radiation? I prefer drinking any beer than Japanese. I loved them in the past when I lived in Japan but I prefer now drinking safe products. FYI in Hong Kong all Japanese beers are in total sales. They costed before March 11th 12 HKD or even 15HKD and now only 8 HKD and in packs still cheaper! Cheaper than Tsing Tao. It is very weird. Japanese products stalls in international supermarkets are also shrinking. Yesterday I attended a talk were the safety director in Hong Kong assured Hong Kong citizens about total control in safe food. He referred about food safety regarding products from mainland China and radiated products from Japan but was evasive about the Japanese banned products. They are but he did not want to provide the accurate data... Censorship maybe because many Hong Konger companies have enriched until the recent past with Japanese imports. Kyo tsukete for those people living in Japan... Be careful with what you eat and drink

Have these restaurants been assessed by their radiation free food?

Spain has the best health care system!I have lived in several countries including Japan but none surpasses the excellent Spanish healthcare. Doctors and nurses are excellent professionals.

In Catalonia, citizens are totally bilingual in Spanish (called more politically correct Castillian in the regions with co-official Hispanic Peninsular languages) and Catalan. because the educational system is. Furthermore, in Barcelona Castillian is more spoken. I know it because I have lived in Barcelona for more than 10 years and there are many laughing comments here. On the other hand, if you meet people that speak you only in Catalan knowing that you are a foreigner they are only pulling your leg. Everybody speaks and understands both languages...

She looks totally unhealthy! She might need to exercise and eat healthily since her body is very flaccid. I prefer healthy and sporty Mediterranean thin girls with great minds than women that starve, are anorexic are not aware of having and do not know how to stay fit in any country of this world.

He has expressed his views about a group a Japanese still believes.
I was no surprised though by his comments. However, I was very shocked one day when a Japanese "educated" person graduated from a very reknown high class Japanese university and one American one, angry told me something that shocked me a lot: Japanese fought in WWII to save Asians from White colonialism... Well, that day I realised that maybe that person was hypocritical with his "White friends" and how possibly some groups of Japanese view WWII. He told me even that ODA was the way to compensate Asian countries and comfort women of Japanese atrocities. What do you think about it?
