    “I could feel the president’s anguish, and I felt we all must work harder,”

    This is precisely what Toyota needs; a few more karoshis (or should I say Caroshi) to show the public they are even more focused and alert during their quality assurance.

    "you sacrifice your life, your sanity, to provide a home and food to boot. Die, you scum".

    Obviously these j-wives are unaware of Japans "unique, traditional" working culture. Crazy.

    Silly foreigners. Don't tell me; you foreigners don't have cake and KFC on Christmas either?

    It's delicious!

    Actually it's very bland. Almost up there with horse-sashimi.

    Hence the baconized version with tare (dip) pictured. Or better yet, if you can be bothered to look up some other versions where the bland flavor is drowned in other flavors then served so that kids (and some adults) can learn to appreciate 'culture' I suggest you google, say, "whale curry served in school". Enjoy!

    First things first: good effort on the Australian embassy to mask its presence by being a "mansion" complex. Very culturally sensitive. But no cigar; the honorable doctors and lab researchers found out and are now waving the plastic flag of marine life studies in their face. Strike one.

    Number two: marketing wins. A healthy slob of foreign heathens complaining about something Japanese do only leads to more of the same. Who'd even thought sea-bacon would exist, getting this devoted fan-base, if it weren't for it being the now forbidden meat-fruit? Strike two, Aussies.

    Three: he has great skin. No blemishes, spots or blackheads. I can only attribute this to a healthy, tasty diet of whale studies with diced daikon. Strike three. Australia - you are out.

    How did Japan’s once vaunted education system sink to this?

    When, I ask, when did we go from the traditional sleeping in the classroom to actually complaining about it?

    // sarcasm aside, anyone else ever told by Japanese how superior their intellect is, backed by the relatively high iq average here? If you ask me, that average is most likely judged and scored the way most university tests here are: attendance, and not actual knowledge. I'm sure a lot of you English teacher whom ever had had to grade people would agree...

    caffeinebuzz, Narita Express takes just a bit over an hour to get to Narita. So...when you say you would save 2 hours of travel time....?

    Not sure if this comment will pass or not, but Sharp has a bit more interesting LED light. Like above, but comes with a remote that can control all the lights in your house, switching light modes between warm and cold color temperatures.

    What a unique, traditional Japanese product. By the way, check out Logitech's MX Air.

    Danny Choo overdid the stormtrooper in Shibuya. Now it's more or less on repeat. But I definitely do appreciate the initiative- finally accepting some guerrilla- and viral advertisement in Japan. Maybe the German part of Adidas here pushed that through. Good for them.

    “The idea was to create a gourmet burger restaurant that was not Americanized like all the chains and other shops. This is a Japanese hamburger restaurant with traditional touches.”

    Aah. The ancient Japanese tradition of hamburger.

    Seriously, is there nothing Japanese won't try to faux tradition-, uniqueness- and touch too? Not just curry, "Japanese style pasta" or maccha frappuchino, but take the clam chowder he mentions...the thing that makes this thing so traditional...the clam is plucked from the ocean here. That makes it a Japanese clam chowder.

    How faux does it get, and, why are so many people buying into it?

    Come on now: out of her arrested- and defamed sons room. No note? No need. The reason seems pretty obvious to most. But keep believing alcohol is hallucinogenic, people. The mental health of society will seem to be doing just fine.

    Who cares about the sword: make it a 2000 year old shrine. That'd timely beat Disneys story and make this one unique.

    the guy I am talking to looks like he might be Bill Clinton’s younger brother. It’s clear he is a dedicated public official; it’s also clear he isn’t originally from Japan.

    I see. Caucasians can't be originally born and raised in Japan. Just as I am sure non-caucasians can't be, say, American.
