I'm with peace train here.Lived here over 17 years ,speak the lingo and ended up over 7 hours in a police station for bumping into to someone getting off the train.Because when there is a choice between believing the foreigner or a native guess which one to side with.They also tried to get my wife to sign a paper consenting to my guilt but told her it was for something else.
Yes if you are asking directions or going through a checkpoint they are fine but it desnt take long for their true colrs to come out.
Used to live inFrance and teach in a seriously rough area of Lyon.Cops at my high school at least once a week,
French cops are "macho" but they do actually listen to what you say.
Here the cops just shut down and immediately think that as aforeigner you are less righteous than a native.
And like peacetrain I like living in Japan still just dont trust the cops an inch which is sad in a way.

Snowden may be an ass but he did expose alot of wrongdoing.This will not happene in the future.
Look at Abe and his boys recently maikng a law that would put people behind bars for a much longer timethan at present for exposing secrets...exposing secrets, whistle blowing etc they are just all the same thing.Very Chinese of the US govt..But at least those politicians feel toug when they posture in front of the mirror..I wish i was as cool as them.

I dont think it is that easy to get a spousal visa under an irish passport.Would take three years living in ireland again with no right to work.seems to be alot of horror stories on the irish side too . I have read about deportation stories ther too.disgusting.I have been in japan 17 years married for the past 10 and it would be very hard to move back with my wife now just because she has a Korean passport.Dont understand it at all
