    Harro Halloween Party 2014: Where to go in Tok-ee-oh (Tokyo)

    Halloween is one of the biggest party events in Japan and some have estimated that Japanese people spend more on the festivities than those in America. And why not? This is the costume play capital of the world. (In the best love hotels, every day is Halloween).

  • >How could you have sex with an obviously unwilling partner?
Actually, I liked it. She was so prim and proper, with a rich inner world and a sense of self-respect. But once I gave her a little nudge, she turned out to be a common slut. Sometimes she even forgot that she supposedly wasn't enjoying herself :) 
It's not like she couldn't come up with money [for the return ticket]. She had a credit card, a mobile phone. She could have borrowed money from her parents or friends, I wasn't holding her by force, but she chose to pay me with her own body. All her histrionics and tears were a result of conflict between her self-image and reality. I told her as much when she was leaving. 

(From R.K. - A credit card issued in Russia most likely could not be used to get money in Japan. Elsewhere, Anton L. states that the woman offered to pay him back after returning home, but he refused to believe her.)

    Has a Russian sexual predator been on the loose in Hokkaido?

    In perhaps the most chilling of his comments, Lennikov describes systematically raping a woman after inviting her to spend a vacation in Japan. Lennikov writes: “Back in Russia, when I was 20, I dated a 16-year-old, let’s call her Masha… I reconnected with Masha through social networks. She is destitute and lives with her cancer-stricken, controlling mother.”

  • Goodbye Japan

    Saying Goodbye To Japan

    I count this as one of my teaching successes. One of my Japanese students is a budding illustrator, and one of her characters is Gachico. Last year when she started as a first year student, Gachico’s speech bubble read, “I don’t like English.” I teased her about it a little bit, and eventually we started chatting more and more outside of class. This year when she turned in her English folder at the end of term, Gachico’s old remarks had been erased, and this was written instead…..

    How could it be that the people closest to the waste dumps weren’t getting more exposure to the deadly dioxin? The figures seemed very low any way I looked at it.

  • Shukan Bunshun to release audio of Yamatani interview

    Eriko Yamatani is a liar–and Shukan Bunshun has the audio to prove it.

Shukan Bunshun to release audio of Yamatani interview

Eriko Yamatani is a liar–and Shukan Bunshun has the audio to prove it.

Eriko Yamatani, the head of Japan's Public Safety Commission, posing with a member of the hate group, Zaitokukai. She contributed an essay to his newsletter in which she derides Japan's democratic constitutions and suggests women should not be allowed to divorce.

Japan’s Female Police Commissioner worked with racist & sexist newspaper?

It’s not just Ms. Yamatani’s ties to a hate group reviled by the UN, Zaitokukai, but in an essay she wrote for a magazine run by a member of the group, she asserts that women in Japan should have their right to divorce taken away from them as part of promoting gender equality. And of course, let’s do something about those tax dollars stolen by capricious single mothers.
