i wish to live in japan as a photographer and writer when i grow up. i grew up eating japanese food and being exposed to their culture, i have japanese family. but, sadly lgbt families aren't legal yet, meaning that lgbtq+ citizens aren't allowed to have or adopt children :( as somebody who is part of that community and might want children in the future, it makes me sad because my family is probably going to move to japan :,( i hope it becomes a law in the next ten years!!!

I wish my mental health wasn't so horrifc and I could finish school and get a degree so I could live in japan. Its such a shame we need a degree to have any job in japan and the main job is English teacher. Its always been my dream to live in this amazing place but alas I will always be stuck on the other side of the world.

no money for dental care, if you don´t have a gov.job pay 50% of the charge for medical care yourself...smal retirement fees, so retirees kill themselves or starve at the lost homes at the countryside since the familymembers in the cities can´t afford to send money anymore, expensive cemeteries(so they jump from cliffs or die in the woods around mt.Fuji, or the like); prostitution from abandoned school girls, straving old, homeless everywhere in the cities....but as i noticed such videos get abolished from he net....similar to France , there are living 300.000 on the street in Paris! and so on...itß´s all just a fantasy and a Potemkin village....

but they won´t give you perm. res. visa except you have at least 4000,- $ income netto per moth guaranteed from an outside source...I asked, I have 30 % more than the average Japanese and don´t get more than 2x3moth visas/year....and if you stay don´t forget the taxes, the high prizes and the social insut´rance fees, even if you are already retired, they charge you 160,- euros/month for retirement even if you are an expat retire under 60! you need a spouse to stay there, a job as a specialist , a husband/wife ; they check your background; you have to do those videos and other silly stuff to proof that you "love" that country and so on....I worked on that for over one year....no thanks....sorry, but no chnace except you are loaded!

Japan rescued 765 Polish orphans in Siberia in 1920, 1921 and 1922.Polish orphans lost their family in Siberia and were hungry without food. Poland asked different countries to save Polish orphans. But every country refused to save the orphans.Finally, Poland asked Japan to rescue the orphans.Japan soon decided to save the Polish orphans. Japan found and rescued the orphans who were crawling in Siberia.We Japanese did our best to rescue Polish orphans. Japan sent a total of 765 Polish orphans to Japan.The orphans were weak. And the orphans were ill.Japan gave orphans a warm meal. And Japan treated the disease of orphans. The disease of all orphans has been cured. The orphans have recovered.Many donations were collected for orphans from all over Japan. Toys were also donated.The orphans treat Japanese who take care of them like a mother.Japanese also loved the orphans as their own children. The Empress of that time also loved the orphans as their own children. Polish orphans had a good time every day.The diet of the orphans was nutritious and gave a delicious meal.On the day of parting, the orphans cried crying that they did not want to leave Japan.The Japanese also shed tears at the farewell with the orphans. Polish orphans sang the Japanese national anthem "kimigayo" and the Polish national anthem on the ship. All 765 Polish orphans returned safely to Poland. Japan loves Poland.If something happens to Polish children, Japan will help again.Japan handed out the Virgin Mary prayer card to all orphans. Polish orphans who always had it survived the war and lived until they were over 80 years old.And during the Second World War, the Japanese “chiune sugihara” saved more than 6,000 Jews.

and one 3rd of the population between 16 and 42 is unemployed, or stuck in 3 jobs, sleeping in manga cafes...or under the bridge; women in family -slavery with no futue´re than nursing some old .......so healthy, yeah?....nuklear pollution, stress , empty countryside, crowded cities, ...high prices, falling income, tiny flats and houses, discrimination,,,,pls watch more than sightseeing vids....I love japan, but even with a good and stable income they won´t allow you to stay, ....it´s just different bcs they exclude... but at least they stay as they are...very expensive or you just hike on a very low level as a backpacker...simple ryokan 80,- bucks per night?

This peaceful society is becoming good memories of old Japan. Japan has changed so much. We now have serious problems with foreigners living in Japan and tourists from certain Asian countries. They are rapidly increasing. I don't want Japan to become a second Europe or America. Japan is already the 4th largest country of immigrants The Japanese culture is being destroyed by our stupid government.

Malon Prischer There are so many. For example, national health insurance and unemployment insurances are being ripped off by foreign workers illegally living in Japan, which puts heavy tax load on the Japanese. Also, there appear to be acts of terrorism by foreigners, which the Japanese mass media never report on purpose. The Japanese mass media are fake news!! The problem is: the Japanese government is so meek and stupid.

Steam locomotive, idyllic countryside, pleasant atmosphere, good company, delicious (healthy) food, tea ceremony.... what's not to like? People should travel more often and open up to other cultures, foods, traditions... to have understanding and build lasting relationships to live together and share this planet in peace and happiness.

Somen is traditional? you can eat that anywhere, it's not traditional local food
Tony Chopper
Tony Chopper Year ago
@viewsfinefromhere relax bro don't get too weaby, it is served in the city, i've lived in both
Somen is a traditional noodle in Japan, very seldom served outside the country. Somen is typically served during summer, cold with a weak soy-based broth as shown in this video. ~I was raised Japanese and spent time between the city and country. Also, sitting on the floor is expected but EATING off the floor is an insult.
Keesecito Year ago
Thank you for your information about somen. However, I never said or suggested that somen is traditional food, nor that all the food we had was tradional. I only said that we had tradional food. I also said that we travelled by steam train, but I did not say that all trains we travelled by were steam trains. Btw, I do not even know what somen is.

Is it possible to hitch-hike in Japan ? I am not rich, eat simple food, can stay in ordinary places. How many dollars per day on average would I need to stay and travel there , say for 15 days ? Can I volunteer for some work there as well ? I am from India and I adore Japanese countryside. Crowded cities don't interest me.

Kishan Kumar ruvid.net/video/video-XgR-UlBCfpE.html A nice spinning top spins quietly. If it get poor balance, it begins to make load voice. One human who is trusted by many people is quiet, but another human who wants to be the one who is trust is noisy. My English is not pretty good so if you don't understand the meaning of the emperor's word, please translate the following. 良いコマは静かに回るが、良くないものはすぐに音をたてる。人もまた、信頼の置かれる人は謙虚であり、信頼の置かれたい人というのはすぐに騒ぎたてる。

Many of the Japanese habits are similar to Indians. Like sitting on the floor to eat, keeping shoes outside when entering an house etc. But unfortunately Indians copy English culture and old good habits are fast vanishing here or else considered the things of poor. They should feel proud of thr culture like Japanese and should speak thr mother-tongues instead foreign language.

i think the similarities stops there, i notice in Japan they jave toilets almost everywhere and they are clean. Their transportation system is top notch, minimal people trying to rip off tourist, the drivers are respectful towards traffic laws, and many more that make Japan more peaceful than any asian nation, i'm talking about post war alright.

Old fashioned Japan is so precious & fascinating! I do like the excitement of Tokyo & other big cities, but I do prefer small towns, villages where life is much slower & calmer. I love to taste the local cuisine & befriend with local people who can share about their life in their small communities!
