That is evident on what they say in his books: https://www.amazon.co.jp/l/B004LT6MIU?encoding=UTF8&qid=1551683428&redirectedFromKindleDbs=true&ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1&rfkd=1&shoppingPortalEnabled=true&sr=8-1

"We grew up in Japan and have countless precious memories there as a family, so it is extremely disappointing that a long-trusted co-worker of my father's would slander him by claiming falsely that my father does not love and respect Japan. Anyone who knows my father knows that is not true," the statement said.

Saikawa needs to be questioned for the scam he set up to rid the company from Carlos, Saikawa is a lowlife

Some Japanese people will accuse you of disrespecting Japan for just not agreeing with them even on a small issue.

Ghosn's children say he used to love Japan

They had better keep saying that until the trial finishes. Even though judges and juries are supposed to be impartial, his goose is cooked if they think he can see and think clearly, is capable of wading through bs commonly spewed by the general populace and TV talking heads and is not a Charisma Man. Respect is one thing and for them make it akin to love is garbage. However, that is how it works here.

Tourists get the impression that Japanese are polite, and maybe a pushover, but that is because they misunderstand. Japan is about the long game. Ignore the issue and wait out your opponent, right or wrong doesn't matter. Passive agressive is the way to win here. The only way.

Sometimes I think your posts miss the mark altogether, but this one is pretty spot on.

At my current job (to end in a few weeks) they accused me of being rude and totally disrespecting my (Japanese) co-workers because, and this is exactly what they said it to face, "you sometimes have a different opinion and not always agree with your (Japanese) co-workers." That's after saving their behinds more than twice, doing their duties even tho I didn't had to and always taking the initiative when we had to do something together. Just listening to my bosses talking like that made me feel so... betrayed. So very familiar with what Gosh is going through in Japan.

When so many work on lines, (vehicle manufacture), travel on lines, (rail system), and eat in lines, (sushi trains), it is to be expected, there are social consequences but it is very efficient, and you @garthgoyle are not of that heritage.

Ghosn may indeed have loved Japan before his arrest but after being held in detention for three and a half months without trial I seriously doubt he still loves Japan.

I hope this blows up in Abe's face, it has his name all over it!

"you sometimes have a different opinion and not always agree with your (Japanese) co-workers."

How about this one. Some years ago while trying to work out a compensation settlement, this is what was said of me to a judge. "He is not of Japanese status, and I am worried that I could loose out. I've heard of cases where people have lost out".

Love Japan & try to save Japan, trust me...........................pls do not waste time staying with liars & back-stabbers and what have U. Yr father can always live in Japan because there are good people that understands , what yr father had done for Nissan. Yr father saved Nissan. Everybody knows that. Yesterday, I was dinning with a very long time Japanese friend and her husband, we had great food. They took know that yr dad was framed. Yr dad had dined in their business before. So pls stay in Japan but pls make sure Yr dad expose fullies and lairs. People that know yr dad well will never believe Nissan. What Nissan have done just proved, how narrow that some people are. There are still fair people that believe in yr dad. Trust me, these people are strong people & do their own business, we know Japanese system quite well.

Gosh, if I were a child and my daddy made all that money and we lived in total luxury, I would love Japan too.

He loves Japan as much as some foreigners love Japan. Not enough to defend or appreciate the culture and people, but enough bs to criticize the smallest issue, while back home in your own country, minorities are foreigners are treated with bias/racism.

The way Japanese treat people/tourist is 10x better treatment than a Japanese person would receive overseas.

Then why is Mr.Ghosn being treated in such a diabolical way?

A huge mistake to get the children involved in the case.

Ouch , this is gunna hurt. New lawyer pulling out the guns, the emotional ones. How it will be received by the J media will be telling. Will it make a difference? Will there be shifts? Or just more deep sighing.

The slander of Ghosn is unacceptable. How could anyone say he disrespected Japan, when many corporations around the world have acted unethically.

Free Ghosn and boycott Nissan!

I have to agree with @gogogo (even though they're probably a man masquerading as a woman according to the Semi-nude picture!)

The Ghosn / Nissan issue smacks of Politics. Now who will dare to write a truthful book about this issue ?

We have got nothing substantial against him so it’s time to play nationalism card, straight out of LDP playbook.

Always a tell-tale, isn´t it? It is the equivalent of playing the race or sexism card in Western politicis. Sadly, these things work, but they show us who has no arguments.

Yes, and the nationalism card works for at least one commenter above

I'm willing to wager that whenever Ghosn gets out of jail he will leave Japan and never come back, such is the extent of his "love" for the place.

I know his kids, and they did love Japan. But then again, all expat kids here have a blast of a time.
