    That should be changed to "world's self-appointed police officer."

    Then again, a police officer doesn't instigate wars, conduct false flag operations, exploit poor, weak countries for their resources or install puppet regimes, does he?

    Posted in: There was a time when the United States was considered the world's police officer who often became aggressively involved in maintaining peace and stability in the world. However, observing the presidential election, it appears the United States is moving further and further to a more inward-looking approach.

    Galileo, the character Fukuyama plays in the popular drama, would have found this interesting. 実に面白い。

    Brave lady and good on her for doing this. I hope she inspires other Japanese women to speak up when they experience any form of crime or injustice, whether it be overseas or in Japan. Their voices have been stifled for so long.

    Since the amount of respect a bow conveys is directly tied to how long it lasts, traditional etiquette dictates that you remain bent at the hips until the elevator doors cut off your client’s view. If you misestimate how long it’ll take the doors to close, though, you’re left with an awkwardly long and uncomfortable gesture.

    This is just so ripe for comedy. If the client just decides to have a bit of fun he purposely hold the open button inside the elevator and see how long the employees can hold it before their backs/hips give out. Once they try to straighten themselves up thinking their guest has left, the client pops out and the employees, thinking they miscalculated, quickly resume their bent positions again. Almost like a comic skit.

    Good idea. Tokyo is packed, congested and too expensive for many people, especially families. If more and more companies follow suit this may start decentralization from the capital and farther outward into distant and less crowded cities. The government should support such efforts by companies, but I think they're utterly clueless on this matter to even consider it.

    Just how much would it entail to ask the marketing department of Pizza Hut to ask a native English speaker or even a returnee Japanese 帰国子女 in the company to do a quick check on this? Really sloppy and slapdash.

    Great, another reboot. Proof again that Hollywood is running out of original ideas.

    I can't count how many times I'd see a McDonald's, Matsuya, KFC, 7-11, and other shops here in Tokyo with foreign, mainly non-Japanese Asians, working there along with their Japanese colleagues. One time at a McDee's in Shinjuku I saw all the registers manned with non-Japanese. I'd say there has been a change in the last several years and an increase in foreign workers, mostly in service sectors like the above. Though, I'm not certain what visas most of them hold, if they're on temporary work ones and thus have to return to their home countries eventually.

    And it begins. I only hope he follows through with his promise to withdraw all the US troups. Problem solved! The real reason the US troops are here is to prevent Japan from joining China in the developing Chinese sphere of influence. Asia is where the future is! The election of Trump is certainly proof that the future is not in America.

    I beg to differ on the part of Japan joining China. Remember, China has been getting under the skin of just about all of her Asian neighbors that she shares a body of water with. If any, I see a mounting alliance between Japan and India (as well as other Asian nations) that once becomes stronger, would be formidable and can change the dynamics in the region. It has already started.

    I do agree, however, that Japan needs to kick out the US and stop paying them a single yen. Like the Rome of old, the US is a country in decline, and with her economy in shambles and a government known for instigating wars, installing puppet governments, conducting false flag operations, etc. around the world, her chickens will eventually come home to roost (and not talking about GMO-saddled KFC either). The center of power is shifting gradually to the East, whether the powers that be in the West like it or not. It is inevitable.

    What's the official advice for snorting up snot through the reverberant nasal cavity, gargling it at the back of the throat for a while before hawking it up into the mouth and gobbing it out onto a crowded station platform?

    They should hold a competition for distance snot and phlegm spitting, like the ones they have in Gunma for plum seed spitting. I'm sure some salarymen can set some world records.

    This was seen as ‘the kind of assistance to people that only caring yakuza could provide.’”

    The irony of seeing "caring" and "yakuza" in the same sentence.

    Above this link is the one about "19-year-old mother arrested for attempted murder of 3-week-old daughter."

    R.I.P. little one. Japan and especially these mothers really need to do some serious soul-searching on how they value life. Tragic.

    I just wonder how Axl's vocals are holding up. From the last Gn'R concerts apparently it's nowhere near the Appetite for Destruction days but let's face it, everyone ages. At any rate, this should be an interesting combination. Trying to imagine Axl doing Thunderstruck.

    I'm watching the news now and the aerial images of landslides and homes, buildings, and cars sliding into hills and earthquake cracks are just horrific. Now about 15 people are reported dead from the calamity. Everyone in the area take extreme care and stay safe.

    This is just Hollywood running out of ideas. They'll be trying to milk any possible superhero combination they can get from both the DC and Marvel universes, including reboots and reworks. Frankly, it's getting tiring. Something more original, please.

    Congratulations, Mima-chan! Great job beating the world champion. From the scores it seemed to have been one nail-biter of a match. Would have loved to have watched this.

    This is just plain selfishness and self-centered thinking on the part of the residents. Unbelievable.

    The city shouldn't have listened or given in to the demands of this resident group. Talk about a lack of backbone.
