Posted in: UNESCO to list Japan architectural techniques as intangible heritage See in context

I'm against UNESCO heritage or Michelin for restaurants. There are so many rules or kind of decrees the venue has to spend much more than necessary and to compensate it will take long time, by years or decades. UNESCO has the European grounded standard that it must changed to world standard which means Asian architectural craftsmanship is much remote than European ones. UNESCO to change the traditional or cultural structure I don't agree.

Posted in: Japan to urge Biden to focus on Indo-Pacific as well as U.S. issues See in context

Biden is too old to do all those things as USA world organizing duty but he can assemble a team to take part the international affairs or someone will replace him and surely not to play golf at those moments.

Posted in: Crown prince proclaimed 1st in line to throne See in context

I’m tired of a prince to be emperor and all those traditional way that women can't bear all of the ceremonies and other diplomatic duties. All of because it was made for man. I really want to see an empress of Japan, I feel much a "man" to respect an Empress and devote my life to her than an emperor.

Posted in: Suga, Abe attend memorial for father of N Korea abductee Megumi Yokota See in context

All of those abductees events to this one of memorial are certainly North Korea regime caught them to use their documents and to teach Japanese language for spies, very sneaky ways that country did is still really a detestable regime. At the same time, Japan diplomacy is the wrongest one in Abe government, no diplomat did something right to take them back, when could be money, could be to release some sanctions or what else to work up much smoothly. But they were only part of the bureaucratic Japanese system, even now useless in any international actions. That's really shame to come to this sad result.

The title isn't really appropriated to this column, no need to mention everybody knows about it. Mask to mask can block x2 and better to every people wear mask, I don't want to see a selfish face of "I don't care" and others will think "it served you" when he is infected.

Posted in: Suga sends ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine See in context

Just another slogan from Japan to the world nobody are really understanding or accepting it, not to say only South Korea or China. It's controversial what this gvt. of Abe's tail is still implicating. Why all of those Japanese soldiers sacrificed in ww2 must have the same Yasukuni Shrine if the war criminals are there, too? Just separate them and pray for the only sacrificed ones in another shrine. Well, it's another political affair, easy to know it!.

Posted in: Japanese gov't creates YouTube channel on N Korea abduction issue See in context

From my point of view North Korean govt. is only thinking about recompense for the abductees and it means money. Last time when some abductees were back to Japan Koizumi former PM promised to get them back in the period of time paying some money but didn't and NK govt. were very disapoointed former Koizumi govt. These day Abe and this Suga is trying again kind of "slogan" to have them back. I think it won't be working anywhere tahn spending more money without proof most of the abductees are not alive and dead bones didn't proof it was real to the abductees. In other aspect NK will pronounce the thousands of Koreans who were victims of ww2 and it will be same as SK strategy, money after money, it's endless. Just to say that there are100 times more of South Koreans there other countries, too. This is another one way news only from Japan and western countries but doesn't reach NK govt. It's unfair from both sides.

Posted in: The immigration authorities are running a system bereft of fairness and transparency. Japan is a party to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, meaning it is committed to recognizing people in need as refugees and protecting them. See in context

I knew that the treatment for detainees is still terrible, and "a system bereft of fairness and transparency" , "people in need as refugees and protecting them" only by words and not by acts it's sugarcoat.

Posted in: Japan to make COVID-19 questionnaires for travelers available online See in context

Travel to another country is kind of hard time in departure and arriving both airports. Being tested negative and have to stay in self-isolation for 14 day? I wish all countries destination (immigration bureau) for the tourists of 90 days to extend to 104 days the 2 weeks of isolation.

Posted in: Suga calls for world solidarity in curbing virus in 1st U.N. address See in context

I never care about a good speaker in English to do a statement in ONU. The important concept that only in Japanese is clear and the Japanese people understand the nuance of real meaning in the language. Just a little worry Japanese language is well interpreted by the translators the subtitle written under the image. Some problems happened with former PM Koizumi. The former Abe was made in English where he did in English, but it it was too much interpreted to westerners understand and not to all Japanese understand in Japanese subtitle, he wasn't that way in domestic Japanese statement. Things I felt tricky his way. Suga better going state in Japanese, natural to everyone in Japan.

Trump, Suga discuss 'free and open Indo-Pacific'. How? More tension will happen. Japan has more good relation with Asean countries, India and Russia, probably with China, not well with S. Korea. Trump wants Japan to be together but his tongue is venom. Suga, never know puppet.

LDP party is now a circus of clowns, and citizens are "good" supporters of what every single person knew who was going to replace Abe and the 2 adversaries also knew Suga will be since he decided to be candidate. Hightech nation Japan to see those poor quality politicians on that photo I feel nausea.

Posted in: Foreigners in Japan becoming target of discrimination due to virus See in context

I'm against discrimination due to virus that isn't only in Japan. The whole world is having this problem. Living in Fukuoka where cases are decreasing very fast, most of the people use mask when approaching others, in transport and tiny places like elevators or escalators. Some people of "I don't care" using mask I can see old people I don' know why, some young guys to talk on smartphone and some with mask not really covered. But the most I can see without masks are foreigners, some saying it has no meaning, others saying it's against the human right. Those actions also are trigger to be discriminated, too!

Posted in: Typhoon leaves 2 dead, 4 missing, over 100 injured in Japan See in context

I live in Fukuoka city and all citizens were well prepared this gigantic typhoon Haishen (no.10), most of retail shops and especially convenience store were closed very earlier. I think disadvantage goes to region not really prepared and some places of natural disaster that would occur, like flood, landslide. I just don't know a civilized and very modernized Japan still has places like those to real state sell where it's extremely dangerous. However, preparation for gigantic typhoon should be well done even if it won't come so strong. We'll never know what happen like that one years ago, it went direct to Kansai area and devastated many houses and cars all around.
