    fjlm44, sangetsu03 and fxgai, take a bow chaps (chapesses?) I love reading the stuff from you guys and being educated.

    Can't you 3 get together and run the country, you'd do far better than the ones we have now in charge!

    Don't you just despise these idiots?

    40% plus of workers are on rubbish part time and contract contracts, so of course there's little demand in the economy. And there never will be as they never address this problem do they? The Japanese economy will never recover. These idiots are just playing games.

    Japan just doesn't care at all about English. Instead of employing qualified teachers on competitive salaries, what does it do? It uses blood sucking parasitic dispatch companies for the main to place totally unqualified unmotivated kids in the classroom and expect this will somehow improve the students' English skills. Or they waste taxpayers money on some totally flawed holiday" scheme" called JET.

    If Japan really cared about English, dispatch companies would be banned and declared illegal, This JET "scheme" should be scrapped and only well qualified highly compensated foreign teachers should be allowed in Japan's schools. And all Japanese English teachers should be required to spend 1 year in an English speaking country as part of their training.

    Will never happen though will it? Japan likes the cheap route of employing foreign kids on piss poor salaries. It's all lip service.

    Posted in: Unless they provide sufficient budgets, manpower and teacher training to support the scheme, we can expect no positive results. Making English an official subject at this point would be a premature decision, and the education ministry's plan almost certainly faces collapse.

    40% of workers here are contract and part time .Abe never addresses this problem does he?? Of course these people don't spend, they might not have a job tomorrow. If they get any cash the sensible thing to do is just save it. And wages are just so low here. My local supermarket is advertising for full time staff with the wage offered 754 yen an hour! No wonder things are so hopeless here now!

    I think the people who have a clue would exchange their yen for other more reliable stores of value, and not start spending.

    Yep. Who holds onto yen in any amount these days?? On a hiding to nothing. Everybody I know divests themselves of yen into dollars/ swiss francs/gold etc as soon as possible after getting hold of it.

    Good luck Kobe! Just get them a nice friendly Swiss Franc Account. You know it makes sense and they'll love you for it in the future when the yen does a Titanic!

    sangetsu03 great comments as usual. We are really lucky to have you on here mate!

    Yen is now at almost 107 to the dollar level. Dropping like a stone! Still, I guess very few foreigners here are crazy enough to hold more than the absolute bare minimum necessary of their funds in yen. So the plunging yen is neutral/good news for most I guess.

    For the last 5 years all my yen savings and unneeded ready cash has been converted into Swiss Francs. Who the hell would want to keep anything in yen?? Got to be crazy!

    Well if the Syrians are coming the ladies had better learn self defence if they don't want to be raped and molested. Just look at Sweden and Germany, the countries have been ruined by these invaders.

    Absolutely not. It would just be a mass victim fest for the japanese. The japanese started the war, butchered millions and with the nuclear bombs, they got just what they deserved. Let's see abe at Nanking first apologizing and bowing deeply.

    Posted in: Japan is asking U.S. President Barack Obama to make an official visit to Hiroshima when he comes to Japan in May for the G-7 summit. Doing so would make him the first sitting U.S. president to visit the city since the atomic bombing in 1945. Do you think Obama should go there?

    I fly out of Japan on average twice a month on business and as far as possible, I always use Cathay Pacific Business Class. It's simply the best. Nothing but praise for Cathay Pacific.

    The worst airline I have ever had the misfortune to use is British Airways. Awful service and attitude from the Cabin Attendants.

    How will you protect yourself?

    Do not, whatever you do, keep any of your funds in yen apart from your everyday needs. As soon as you earn yen change to Dollars and Swiss Francs. The yen is just going to collapse very soon.
