Yeah, Miranda is clearly lying out of her ass and got called out nicely by a native Tokyo resident. Still she can't politely back off to save face by saying something like "Oh really? It seems so much colder than usual right now. Maybe it's because I'm sick." Or, "Maybe I'm remembering my dates wrong then. It's been a while, maybe what I'm thinking of wasn't in November." Something like that that helps her save face while acknowledging that maybe the other person has a point. Most people have the social skills to gracefully admit that they might be mistaken or to gracefully bow out when they've been caught in a white lie.
The only time I've ever heard of any sort of "special visa" being granted has been in the case of a divorcee who has a child with a Japanese man. The child holds Japanese citizenship and not granting this "special visa" would cause the mother, and therefore the child, to have to leave the country. This would remove a Japanese citizen from the country as well as disrupt the relationship between child and father. I don't know if they ALWAYS grant a woman in this situation a visa but I have heard of it happening. I suppose it's basically a family visa without the marriage. Note: I am NOT suggesting that this scenario has anything to do with Miranda. I'm only stating the one "special" visa situation I've ever heard of.
I honestly see no issue with a country changing the name of a food or product to fit their language so that people understand what it is. If they were to claim it as their own creation that's one thing but that's not what's happening. People who haven't been to Japan probably have no idea what "kanten noodles" is and may not show interest to try it. Call it "ice cream ramen" though and not only will English speakers understand what it is but are more likely to be interested in trying it.
Uh, yeah, as a conservative I'm going to have to stop you right there. None of those things that you described right there have anything to do with being conservative. You're just applying false stereotypes based off of a very small percentage of people who happen to identify as conservative but whose viewpoints come from where they were raised, not their politics or even their religion.
I'm pretty sure Rody isn't her husband. Boyfriend, maybe, but not Visa-kun. One of the other jvloggers (Victor?) implied that he met her husband and that he doesn't speak any English whereas Rody does. I honestly don't buy this "fascination" with Saudi Arabia or any Arabic country. I think it's just a pathetic cover to try to make herself look less weebish. She's failing miserably of course, as she does with everything she tries to do.
The way that she holds chopsticks looks legitimately painful. I have pretty poor fine motor skills and yet I manage to hold and use chopsticks way better than she does. Hell, I went to our local ramen place the other day with my friend and her family and her 4 year old wanted me to show him how to use chopsticks. I showed him once and even though it was naturally extremely clumsy, he did a better job of holding them and grabbing noodles than she did with her chopsticks. I reiterate, a 4 year old using adult sized chopsticks for the first time ever after being shown how once did a better job than the oh-so-Japanese Miranda. I really don't understand why she's try to force herself to use the wrong hand if she's actually a leftie. She looks terrible doing so. I was actually experiencing some second hand embarrassment knowing that the Japanese she encounters may judge future foreigners by her actions.
A-freaking-men. I'd pay $300 for a well written romance novel if the sexy guy on the cover would cuddle me shirtless while he read it to me. Of course, he'd have to have a nice voice too.
OT but these quotes are really killing me. It legitimately took me 5 minutes on mobile to make it so that I wasn't quoting a huge block of text from multiple people just so that I could reply to one sentence.
Idk @BeHappy She'd probably try to use some sort of Japanese martial arts or fighting style because she's oh so Japanese except that, oops, she's not. I honestly don't think that girl could give up her delusions even if her life really did depend on it. It's kind of sad
