Again ms. Chavez misses the crux of the matter. She uses Horei as an example and because of his troubles people think thrice about any enteprenurial direction. Bullying is the result of being different. She gives ONE example of some talking about his mistakes. What a way to generalize a country.

Because Japan is becoming more and more insular
Posted in: In 1995, Japan’s GDP was seven to eight times larger than ASEAN. Now it’s only two times larger. When we look at investment, trade and tourism, Japan’s role in ASEAN is becoming relatively smaller because of other countries emerging.

I think at 30 they can dispense with the "boy band" nomenclature. They are not boys any more.

Actually people would be milling around but perhaps mulling (grinding,pulverizing) is apt as that's how I feel at the shindigs.

I say ok if everyone is fingerprinted. Yes, that means the Japanese that travel, as well.

Wow, Amy, I am not sure which Japan you live in but drinking laws are strict but not enforced as written, parking lot attendants not where I live in the countryside of Kanto, ore ore scams, chikan molesters, bullying so horrendous that far too many children take their own lives, sports club teachers that bully and assault their charges. I'm not saying this happens all the time everywhere but you make it sound a paradise. It's not.

Yes, dismissing the issue makes it go away. I guess we will have robots raking care of the elderly, coerce people to have children for the sake of the country, and tax the crap out of whomever is left.

@mizuame -well, there is most certainly a huge failure to respect the rights of (young) women in this country. To those who will tell me it's not only here. Whether it happens I other countries is beside the point as this story is about Japan

Young children should not, I repeat, should not be out late at night.
Posted in: The proliferation of mobile phones gives children a sense of security that they can call for help if anything happens. This has led ordinary kids to roam about. To avoid further tragedies, facilities where children can go must be made available, even late at night.
