    Reyter you don't have to be so coy, we all can tell you have a thing for Glenski :cracker::love::rose:

    Are you suggesting we take up arms against the status quo because you were asked for ID? Are you really that delusional?

    So what are the benefits an indigenous people enjoy? I see that a lot of people who might not be Ainu have been trying to claim it as their heritage to get special loans for school. Is that it?

    Strange that the video is flipped horizontally, and that she was playing a sanshin and singing in Okinawan. I had to look up Rimi Natsukawa to see that she's an Okinawan folksinger. It'd be nice if...

    This isn't really a measure that people in general can take to help out the situation; this is probably something that is more likely to happen as a result of market forces. As tuna becomes more...

    信頼 means trust, faith, dependance. It can be used for that kind of reliance on family members.

    3 months salary is considered the "norm," over here as well. This has nothing to do with Japan and everything to do with standards imposed on consumers. "If you care, you'll spend a lot of money."
