    This is a country of slave labour and top-down bullying. It's sad there aren't proper unions in place to combat this. If it were my home country the union rep would be waiting at the door kicking people out of the office at 4pm. The idea that you have to sit at your desk and be 'dutiful' for no apparent reason (except taking up space) is an awful thing in the Japanese system.

    The funny thing is most people are so brainwashed by the system they don't see the good in leaving early or not working for free. "It's my duty" they say ... No it's a load of doody.

    Not only do they need showers before school or work, they need tutorials on body deodorant and what is best for your body. I couldn't agree more with all the other comments about smoke, BO, perfume, and especially the teeth! They stand there with a dry toothbrush scrubbing for at least 20 minutes without a drop of toothpaste or water.

    And to add to this, the kids at school smell really bad, too.

    Generates money how? Gambling losses. Not a healthy way to build a society. Plus gambling areas are the tackiest places on Earth.

    I don't have the same last name as my spouse, but I am on the family register, and I have my own residence so I have my own Juminhyo. The problem is with children: When you don't have the same last name then the name of your kids goes to the Japanese National. But, if you go to court to fight it, it will get changed. Yes, it is very archaic and ridiculous since it totally discounts any equality or rights for the foreign resident. It also discounts the equality of the national since they may not want to change their name.

    If it wasn't this confusing then a lot of city/town officials would lose their jobs. Gotta have that bureaucracy more than human rights.

    Don't expect much. It'll be awful here. Expect it to be around ¥1200/month.

    Where are the rinks and mountains in South Korea? Sad choice. Just keep the games in places with infrastructure for it.

    I just like the songs, decorations, and food. Presents are unnecessary. As you get older you realize the waste of spending and that it's better to try to enjoy each other's company. I'm sure from all the wives' experiences above the families are pretty pushy and gluttonous, but don't worry about the pressure - just enjoy the time.

    Well, if they go for it and get it maybe Japan will keep it's borders open past 2020. Let's communicate with foreigners ... ugh. In all honesty, it's a waste of money to have such an event. Even after the next Olympic Winter games in Korea, they have only 2 bidders (Beijing and some place in Kazahkstan) ... money pits indeed. Just keep it in the European Alps everytime. It would be easier for all.

    Come on Scotland! Time to oust this archaic Monarchy. I wish the rest of us did away with our Governor Generals and this silliness. Emperors, Queens, Popes, and witch doctors all share the same line - con-artists.

    It's called Lou Gehrig's disease. It's been around forever. Stop these 5-year old challenges and just privately donate to whatever you want. You don't need to wear pink, grow a moustache, or pour ice water over your head.

    Charity is selfless, not selfish.

    When I first saw this guy on tv after his capture I thought something was odd. This country has a ton of mentally ill that they look the other way from. I feel sad for this guy.

    Next thing you know they'll start rounding up the English speakers and making them live in these "Special English Zones". For some reason that doesn't sound too unrealistic ... I mean foreigners are equal to Japanese ... umm ...

    The IOC like FIFA are mafia. They take their cut and leave the rest scattering for crumbs or other underhanded deals. Just sad that Japan and the IOC park their cars in the same garage - no concern for regular people.

    Arevederci. Now whatever team wins the world cup, let's get a gaijin from there to teach us! It works in all facets of society here, so it's a no-brainer. Ganbare Nippon.

    What a beautiful game - faking, diving, biting, no clock stoppage, 0-0 ties...

    Fine him and move on.
