    But the arrangement will reduce state revenue by some 1 trillion yen annually, forcing the government to find other sources to cover the loss at a time when welfare spending is increasing due to the country’s graying population.

    I loled out of my chair at this image of some suits trying to "come up with a plan" to "cover the loss" Yeah, must be muy dificil to just STOP building meaningless public work projects to the tune of billions and billions of yen each year.

    More like they are thinking, "what other way can we force the public to give us that money back again..."

    Tax pachinko ffs. Here is another weird thing. The national lottery as far as I know, Does NOT tax winnings at all. If you were to hit like, a million yen on a scratch ticket. You get that amount straight up. not "after taxes"

    Maybe start taking a cut of gambling winnings?

    “But there is no way that police would provide (the media) with a photo of the face (of a suspect).”

    Funny, as his face was all over the news this morning.

    There are 4 main seasonings. Sugar, soy sauce, mirin and salt. Makes everything taste pretty much the same.

    Good.

    Makes a statement that the some people in the world care about this outrageous behaviour of whaling for "research" and "tradition".

    I'm sure that's ALLLLLLLL they will be doing right? "patrolling for drones" sounds like a thinly disguised 24 hour eye in the sky.

    Start trending this.

    Do something about it.

    Share the story and get people to boycott.

    I will go to the one near me today and hand out photocopies of the Japanese language article to inform people passing by that they may want to reconsider supporting this evil chain.

    My father posted bail on the same day that he was charged. He spent that night in a hotel and then came home

    Meh. Doesn't sound like the family really went through that much. But, nice to see the girl drop her feels like that. Very rare thing indeed.

    Maybe more Dads in Japan should get arrested to be able to better communicate with their children? Could be a new start up!

    Japanese university education offers very poor preparation for the 'real' world.

    It's ok. After they "graduate", all that is required of them is to live here in Japan and work. In the "real world" ;)

    Didny worl.

    The unit is made up of about 20 personnel in Tokyo with about another 20 based in Japanese diplomatic missions abroad and concentrated on four areas: Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East and North and West Africa.

    20 people spread over 4 massive areas....Seems like enough to do the job. lol

    "Let's create a Japan where women can shine...wearing kimono, looking pretty and making tea for us old men. AND we pledge to have 7 percent women in leadership roles by 2030!! I present to you...Womenomics in action!" - Shinzo Abe

    Just wanted to reiterate from Burakamin again. I think the picture and this quote kind of basically sum it all up nicely.

    This is the problem for people working in Japan, due to the poor economy, higher future tax burden that awaits and generally pathetic policies being pursued by successive Japanese governments, which inspire little hope that the broader economy might provide individuals with an economic tailwind anytime soon.

    Spot on! Also, in my case, almost zero annual signifigant wage increase. Currently, It's like lighting your face on fire and then putting it out with a rake to borrow money now for people like me....

    Private schools are usually more lax at letting the gaijin use other texts, adapt and or just straight up create original material/lesson plans. There are many fine books out there that are written by people who actually understand the English language. Why doesn't the ministry of Edumbcation just adopt a more useful textbook?

    Why does he need to apologize for business as usual here?

    You do realize that most employees involved in sales have a monthly budget that is specifically to use to "wine and dine" potential clients.

    Ah, because he got caught!

    "Sorry brah! Reaaal Sorry!!! I will do apologizings now. No consequences right? Sweeeeeeet Ok, I'm like.....SUPER and genuinely like, totally sorry. Seeeriiousllly...I really mean it. Can I go now? Cool...lates!"

    “After the Fukushima Daichi accident, some believed that is the end of nuclear power. It was not the case,”

    Because apparently, humans aren't happy until they extinct themselves.

    “Nuclear power plants or use of nuclear power is increasing significantly,”

    Hopefully this was said with an inflection that indicated that this was a bad thing and not a good thing.

    “Nuclear power plants or use of nuclear power is increasing significantly,” he said.

    He said. Without giving any examples or real data. He just.....said it.

    “After Fukushima, lots of improvements have been made,” he said.

    uh-uh...WHERE? in Japan? developing countries? Why is Mr. Amano allergic to giving us data?

    “If nuclear materials fall into the hands of terrorists, that can be used for dirty bombs,” he said. “If it happens in a big city, that can cause a panic.”

    Really? If a dirty bomb goes off in a big city, that can cause a panic? Huh....Thought everyone tends to remain calm when a bomb explodes. This guy is learning me reaaaalll good today!

    “Terrorists always target the weakest link, so we need to be well prepared for that to address nuclear security,” he said.

    Terrorists need only to succeed once and it is game over for potentially hundreds of years if targeting a nuclear plant. Here is my idea how to be "well prepared" to address nuclear security...... STOP MAKING TAGRETS!
