What is the name of this drama? Wonder what those signs say.

Looks like China has a good grip on Taiwan. Guess we don't have to defend them anymore.

I thought you were of the view that Taiwan was its own country, but dont japanese people see Taiwan as part of China?

And yet more proof Japan is alienating itself over the sex slaves and a few rocks. This will help solidify the wingers, though (Ossan's comment is a pretty good indication), and maybe we'll stop hearing how much "Taiwan loves Japan".

Yes, let a handful of noisy obnoxious decendants from the mainland shape your entire view of Taiwan, OssanAmerican. Way to go, way to go.

These japanese don't seem to be nothing to do with war criminals happened in the past. It sounds like that father is a criminal and his son is blamed in the future. Nonsense!

It looks like it's not just Koreans and Chinese constantly complaining and making up stories to smear Japan's image.

Taiwan is in it as well it seems? Must be an inconvenient truth for some..

Sons are not responsible for sins of their fathers.

When sons deny their fathers crimes and accuse the victims of lying, therein is a problem.

Let them complain, they won't get a cent and they're just wasting their lives.

This demonstration could have taken place in Japan. Lots of people don't like any of those guys here too.

These chaps are carrying on the legacy of their fathers in the militarisation of Japan. I wish their fathers went to war and got blown up the pieces, Asia will be a more peaceful place. Instead they asked our fathers to fight the war and left only with our mothers to care for our future since most of our fathers never came back.

Some of the unruly, Japan-hating minority of Taiwan.

'unruly' and 'hating' because they disagree with you...

I agree with them. They and their ilk should be banned from political life in Japan. Unfortunately, we do not have such bans.
