The Tokyo 1964 Olympiad was held in October 10-24 (15 days) and this present time October not able to be held for other sport events like baseball Nippon series? Hmm, I checked US of more national events there, American football, Basket ball, Baseball, etc... And the American broadcast is in top privilege to IOC get profits the Olympiad be held in August. What else behind the curtains!

Posted in: IOC apologizes for abrupt plan to move Tokyo Olympic races; Sapporo mayor not notified See in context

IOC is a private association that involves profits to them and lot of loses to the site cities, many of them still have problems, cities of many sport venues and no access after the Olympics...Why IOC has the principal motto to say a city as venue of many sports? Who is getting the profits and who has the loses, very simple answer for that. I only support Olympic games when the athletes has their advantages to compete and show the quality of each sport or competition to the world. I'm much fan to the world cups of many sports than Olympic games of significance to participate.

Posted in: Considering Japan has so many typhoons, why are there still so many roadside utility poles? Is it feasible to bury them underground? See in context

No matter what, it is much safer buried. For the costs of all those poles and steel towers on mounts I don't think they will cost much more than the damages will occur next calamities. I know that some places are not easy to make electrical materials buried but I know that fiber cables of telecommunication are under water and land very protected from natural disasters. All those primitive style of poles and towers should be replaced to buried ones with better maintenance. Electric companies to learn from NTT safer ways to make the cables sound and safe.

Posted in: Typhoon death toll rises to 40 as search-and-rescue operations continue See in context

I visited Okinawa several times and I can see the buildings and houses there with more holes every partitions and the ditches much deeper, to avoid the tremendous calamities of typhoons coming every year stronger and stronger. I live in Fukuoka and I can feel those typhoons coming every year stronger and not really prepared that ones Okinawan people do. So, those typhoons coming and going different routes with bigger size and much speed and stronger further those go, how can people be prepared at most,? However from those experiences Japan will show more defensive infra-structure (Okinawa has) to those future typhoons. At least from experiences and let's see real actions to make the real fortress... Maybe a little earlier when people only know from media what's going on + need support from the government of lawmakers not -prepared or perhaps ignoring to use national budget in the correct purpose.

Next generations modern history will explain what was this "Abenomics", majority of Japanese citizens supported him without knowing of that stagnated economy forwarded poverty. His name will show shame on him, to have his name displayed in this Japan's economy plan. It would be another name, such as LDP economics, kind of.

My worries are more about what Abe govt. want to use this 2% of tax consumption for the next budgets, the promise was to support social welfare for children and old generations and never for military strength he still dreams with his hawkish lawmakers.

Posted in: Tax hike adds to woes for low-income households in Japan See in context

"Northern European nations have high consumption tax, but as they also provide high levels of social welfare, most people accept the burden," Explains that Japan's Abe govt. and cia. policy is to approach Scandinavian social system? Only to think about the natural disasters happening these days in Japan, tax money of come and go + national bond to increase every year is completely an absurdity. Those leaders of lip services for next elections, very few people reactions to protest against governmental system will create more poverty when the promises of the leader to hike tax won't be executed and more people to find poverty a routine. Japan to be one of the top-leader nation in G7 and this comparison with Northern European high levels of social welfare...Hmm, it's really the time to think what is this world of absurdity, when aftermath routine and political senseless is the same of the air we breath.

Posted in: Foreign tourists in Kyoto reminded of etiquette via smartphones See in context

Read and see to follow etiquette doesn't work; better to know the feelings and communicate with Japanese people to get the real etiquette. Especially the typical place like Kyoto, outsiders from other places are not accepted if you don't feel it...It's not only for foreigners but to Japanese people, too!

Posted in: After the Oct 1 rise in the consumption tax from 8% to 10%, do you think the one-yen and five-yen coins will gradually disappear from circulation? See in context

Perhaps 1 yen will disappear but 5 yen ( to say goen) means "good luck", and to say in Japanese -goen ga aruyouni- means a "better expectation in luckness".

Checking well, if the price without consumption tax is less than 10 yens at the end, 1 yen or 5 yens coins will exist.

Posted in: Japanese cattle farmers fear U.S. trade deal will be death knell See in context

Bilateral trade deal will be a "win-win" is ideal but about cattle farming isn't when quality becomes priority matter. Japanese cow beef can be the best and very expensive ones to the market. US beef would be very competitive with Australian or others when the prices are displayed. US-Japan bilateral trade, TPP with Australia and national cow meat will be on the shelves to be differentiated by quality and prices. Well, that's the market, probably the "win-win" not to the customer when quality and prices are offered...

Posted in: Anger at acquittals of TEPCO execs in Fukushima case See in context

TEPCO isn't a private company by no mean, it's a part of governmental industry function leaded by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry(Keizai Sangyosho). Abe govt. supports Nuke plants and that's political plot behind the scene. I remember some news how those TEPCO executives were having a elite (extravagant) life with politicians showing arrogant behaviors at that time of babble economy. It can't be ending up this way. They don't deserve acquittals and have to be charged again, the right prosecution without any political or bureaucratic interference. Japan judicial system is still stagnated and involved in politics of plutocracy (supported by government).
