During that occupation, the natives and captured soldiers were barbarically tortured.

schestowitzJapanese continue to be racist to the large Korean and Chinese communities in the country as well as to the burakumin and ainu (native) peoples of Japan. There are hotels, bath houses etc which continue to ban foreigners from being admitted. Also there aren't any racism laws enacted.

schestowitzI've been checking all sorts of flights with the German airlines, starting beginning of November. These flights are cheap considering the distance and if I can do my work remotely, then before actually applying to any job there (haven't applied for any yet) it might be worth checking for oneself what life is like there, even if just for a period of one month. My parents' friends absolutely love it, but it's not everyone's cup Oct 12 11:03
