*Tokyo is starting to suffer from severe labor shortages in the construction industry because everyone is over 60 years old. The upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics may fall apart because there is nobody young enough to build the new sports venues. Refer to:

Best way to move books and stuff out of Japan

Question:
“Can anyone recommend a moving service in Tokyo to mover from Japan to the US? ….books, but not a lot of stuff.”

Answer:
For books–the “M-BAG

The cheapest method for shipping books and “media” is the “M-bag”— Printed Materials Postage, Surface Mail. Go to the counter of a Japanese district post office and ask for the the biggest capacity “M-Bag.” If they look at you like you’re from another planet, use the Japanese name for M-Bag, Tokubetsu Yutai/特別郵袋, or just go to a larger post office.

m-bag-japan-post

An M-Bag is a fairly big, heavy duty canvas bag with a drawstring. You can stuff it absolutely full of books, printer-created material, media such as CDs/DVDs/BR and software counts as “printed matter” also. The bag is big enough to put a dead spouse into, if need be. :)

Learn more about the cost of shipping of “Printed Matter (Books / Magazines), Mailing large quantity, printed matter in special mailbags) at the official Japan Post website:
  •http://www.post.japanpost.jp/cgi-charge/index.php?lang=_en

I recommend putting materials in a longish box, then putting the box inside the official M-Bag. The M-Bag will take about 4-6 weeks to get to Western part of the US, and the rate is significantly lower than shipping the books by any other means…less than 5,000yen.

M-Bag Shipment: When shipped in an M-Bag, first pack the books in a box with an address label. The box is then placed in a separate mail bag addressed to the addressee on a tag attached to the bag. The postage is the same if the box weights anywhere between 4 and 11 pounds and then increases with weights beyond 11 pounds. M-Bags may be either standard (surface mail) or Air Mail M-Bags.

Foreigners/Gaijin go home!

Japan’s insular island mindset —Shimakuni-konjo strikes again!


Shareholders attack Takeda for hiring foreign executives

The Financial Times / June 20, 2014
A push by Japan’s biggest drugmaker to globalise has come under attack by more than 100 former executives and shareholders, casting a cloud over broader efforts by the country’s top companies to internationalise
110 former executives and individual investors questioned the company’s appointment of non-Japanese to several senior positions.
“The company’s globalisation is a wrong globalisation. It should be globalised as a Japanese company” said Yujiro Hara, a former head of Takeda’s real estate subsidiary who represents the group.

Takeda Pharmaceutical foreigners ruin all the fun

The rest-of-the-story is that like any Japanese company foreigners ruin all the fun. Takeda Pharmaceutical’s management like any good Japanese company spends all their profits in drinking and whoring parties and well as hiring from their alma mater their conies and massive “sales forces” that sell less than their wages. Foreign management stops all that nonsense.
Notice that said-openYujiro Hara, a former head of Takeda’s real estate subsidiarysaid-closed is one of those conies who did not provide value to Takeda since the drug company has no logical reason to have a real estate subsidiary, sheesh.

JAPANESE BIO-TERROR ALERT: Ramen Fries

Keizo Shimamoto, the promoter/star of the short horror film Ramen Dreams and his toxic Ramen Burger, his come up with a great way to rid the “Brooklyn Flea (market)” of its hipster infestation.
He’s serving up “Ramen Fries” to go with his stomach cancer causing* Ramen Burger.

ALERT: The Ramen Fries Are Coming
Foodbeast 2014/06/21
Keizo Shimamoto, creator of the famous Ramen Burger has created the only side dish worthy of being paired with his game changing burger, Ramen Fries. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, those are straight up wedges of deep fried ramen noodles topped with what looks like a secret sauce of some kind
ramen-fries-fright

*Japan is always in a battle with Korea for the highest rate of stomach cancer in the world (3Yen / 2005-06-24) due in large part because the Japanese suck down so much hot, hyper-salty, MSG-laden, transfat-filled, greasy ramen.
