That is why sake is so cheap so you can temporarily forget the misery.

If the yen keeps going down I’ll invest in another property for the transient workers to rent…

Japan lose Iran oil,will send shock to the economy

The cost of air tickets has blown up too. Fuel surcharge on aircraft is high.

Shipping and oil is based in US$ so hurts anything oil related.

Which is pretty much everything in Japan to do with imporrs or exports.

At least the tourists can enjoy a cheap holiday among the temples during the day and stay out all night partying in the bars. Have fun.

Although the increasing cost of energy imported from the Middle East is an issue that Japan cannot do anything about, the weakening yen is providing a tailwind for exports.

By the way, the amount of crude oil imported from Iran is small, so there would be no problem if it ran out.

Car sales in the United States are increasing for all manufacturers, and the yen is expected to continue to depreciate.

The yen, which was originally valued at 360 yen, had become too expensive, putting a brake on the economy.

There is no doubt that the further depreciation of the yen will lead to further growth in the performance of each company.

Japan can't buy oil from Russia and Iran, they dare not and cannot afford to anger USA, they are paying higher prices to buy oil with ridiculous price tag. Japan is no China, she has no spine to standup for the nation's best interests!

Japan can't buy oil from Russia and Iran

No one wants Russian oil. The world hates Russia.

I can't speak for other countries but the Chinese, we are definitely not hating Russia or buying the western propaganda of Russophobia. Oil is oil, just how much cost for each barrel, Russia and Iranian oil are big saving for China,they are truly our good friends!

Japan paying too much for oil, why put the sake of the nation under a foreign country's demands. Just stay neutral out of the crisis of Ukraine and you will get a big bargain of oil, that wasn't sound bad.The gulf kingdoms were asking too much, 70 or above 80 dollars per barrel and lasting more than two years, paying the price that will hurt your economy and causing hyper inflation, that's just ridiculous!

In Japan, it is not considered possible to do decent business with countries such as China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. This position is clearly different from that of China, which approves of Russian aggression just for the sake of oil.

In the first place, Japan has a long history of oil trading with countries in the Middle East, and should not be involved with a communist country that would cut off oil and natural gas supplies if a war broke out.

Moreover, it is nothing more than a fantasy to think that hyperinflation will occur in Japan.

A cheap Yen helps exports and restricts imports as they are more expensive.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. No one who matters wants Russian oil.
