An editorial entitled ‘Flyjin’ rather few took a look at a recent survey by Tokyo into proving that flyjin exist re-examining how information is delivered to foreigners. JT says: That survey seems to imply that many foreign residents did indeed become "flyjin," [...]. The survey, however, also confirms that the vast majority of foreigners in [...]

And he’s firing on all cylinders, with only just a little sugar in the tank: http://globalite.posterous.com/mental-meltdown-in-an-nhk-world It’s an, umm, interesting and exceptionally lengthy read.
Donald Keene gets slagged, along with a rehash of Mr Arudou’s PowerPoint slides. And yes, as iago and Eido predicted, Mr Keene’s joke about his promising not to commit crimes based on his naturalisation oathhas been taken by Mr Arudou as an attack on flyjin.

Now this is one good reason to become a flyjin: I suppose since the breweries have mastered turning piss into lager, this was a predictable step. Isn’t it vegetarian, as it’s just like eggs or honey.
Good news about the NJ legacy of Greg Lekich and the Teachers for Japan organisation. What exactly are the debunkable claims of "fly-jin"? But anyway, I am confused by why Mr Arudou chose to categorise this as good news, as the news article is full of Bad Social Science™. I don’t see a survey as [...]
He says: This problem may be contained in Fukushima for now, but the contamination may spread outside of Fukushima. Anxiety and frustration are growing. People cannot live in the contaminated areas. These areas are becoming uninhabitable. Japan has lost its territory by that much. If we do nothing, even Tokyo could become off limits. There [...]
