Mr. Denny Tamaki is the right governor of Okinawa 100 times more than Mr. Abe to a prime minister of Japan. One of the best reason is to find Trump policy wants Japan of Abe to pay the US military bases for all the expenses as much as Trump think US military is protecting Japan. If Mr. Abe wants to increase the JSDF in Okinawa US military bases should be reduced and the expenses will go more for JSDF, what it can be much fair to tax payers understand how the budget was used. So, who is the person who can franky speak to US military? Isn't Mr. Denny who can fluently express the US military how it should be done? LDP politicians or former Okinawa governors couldn't express with rhetoric Japanese (ways of round about) to Americans understand were what unfortunately occurred for many years. I support Mr. Denny ability to overpass the policies of both sides, standinding in the name of Okinawa.

I'm not pro or anti I only want Japan to do trade with the world. Can be US, China, EU, Russia, UK, SK, South American, African nations, Oceania, wherever it won't be economic aggression. Figure out what is fairness at the top, some nations can be one on one, other can be multinations like TPP. If Japan is getting profit, using win-win sytem or protectionism, here is Japan with a vision to the world. Now, politics and geo-politics are going too strong and aggressive, but only these current govts are going too further, let's change that with citizen voices and business system to work in different system, no more than that with hope, wish and our will.

Why it should be in Tokyo Bay marathon swimming and triathlon? Just to learn from that Rio's bad experience Olympic organizers to find much clean water like as Shonan in Kanagawa prefecture or a beautiful beaches of Chiba prefecture outside Tokyo Bay. Organizers should think the swimmer athletes health. Tokyo Bay should be definitely much clean but not for this Olympic purpose.

More cheaper circus of Trump strategy to use this puppet Pompeo, Japan of Abe to pay more all of what Trump is planning to get payed, the trade balance, pay 100% for USA military to protect Japan, reparation of ww2 war to NK and more to SK or China, all of them to be payed by Abe when 10% taxation will be executed and what aren't the multiplication of national bond each year Abe is doing with his administration. Aren't them abnormal? A single dude governing long period to say OK sir! to Trump, and plenty of issues will be the domestic burder Abe is going to do next generations to pay back(?), really insane this administration trajectory and just sad Japanese citizens only follow Abe's policy bc he is the only one to govern Japan, all by LDP.

Aged lawmakers to find ways of labor reform isn't a clear vision to me, they need more younger economic experts to set up the basic framework. Aged people up 65 who is getting new or different jobs should be satisfied to accept works (duties) as beginners on low wage when started, even though the government is helping companies to employ them. I can find some aged people complaining difficulties to follow the new systems or work with under ages(actually, inevitable to get jobs denying those). For those reasons of aged people have gaps to continue work under conditions, I suggest government to have meeting with experts of human resources to find better ways to aged people work on their availabilities. Perhaps, better to formulate manuals/simulations/plans amongst govt. officers, company employers and aged employees to everyone understand the offered job will evaluate this "trinity", govt. taxation, comp. profit and aged employees wage-ups by time. Well, if I say some people are not available, it isn't a problem of ages, anyone has to understand that. For example, no exception of selective interviews or the later trainings bc he/she is aged person.

I'm just saying you're biased because the past is a abundance of biased stories, we are living now in the century to know many thing was wrong, many were staged and forged, especially the power did it, now they are the politicians. Please check what Alex80 commented, I agree with him in this debate. I don't want to be biased with 1000 lies become a truth. I hope you understand what I mean. We have to make history, a real one!

I know that South Korean are against this flag, but for me it's just a navy flag and it doesn't mean the oficial Japan's flag raised in international events. I'm a Brazilian Japanese and I'm proud to know my father was in the Imperial Japan's Navy and confronted US, UK and Australian navies with good results in Southern Pacific areas. Never against South Koreans bc they were in the same ship and were braves, my father's word when I heard from him in his life time.

One more thing to comment here, Japan politics world is the same of 150 years ago, where the Shogunate is the dominant from that feudal era of Edo period. Lawmakers(samurais) classified to be the top rank who is very obedient to Shogun and down ranks are who are against. Well, as this system still is stagnated from decades and a century ago, how can women politicians confront this males tradition, time always will tell and it will need time to sound and smell.

Look at the market how many products are universally sold only for women, and see how many women are doing business for them. Checking the points more business for women will come. Unfortunately the social vision in Japan is much male position to attend women customers (mathematically?), 20-30 years later perhaps it will change, politicians also will change when more women politicians have more power and when at that time Abe is resigned or in the grave.

Abenomics is helping the companies combined with Bank of Japan system and the companies to pay taxations to have Japan economy much stable. The big lack is that the companies never give the wages up and want more and more cheaper labors including a lot of women. Christine Lagarde suggested more women politicians in Japan but it won't resolve companies to support family lives most are contracted or part-time jobs what they offer. Abenomics still help the companies and the citizens to bear the circumstances of his policy. How to have a big family of 4-5 or more children to resolve the shrink of population and young generations to do care services the aged generations with proper wages, one of the hardest job of miserable wages?

I don't want to comment any opinion of political affair or pointing the enemy China, NK or Russia. I only think that this training is a good experimental military exercise on a defensive tactics. Japan and UK are island nations and they have a lot in common how to defend the land without borders sorrounding only by waters. I also feel that the British military are more disciplined troops to equalize much the Japanese style. The only barrier will be the language to Japanese soldiers adapt the universal language that is English. And I feel that British soldiers will be happy to learn some Japanese language, either. I wish them to be able to do their best the defensive exercises but never that to be offensive landing on other countries...

If some guys are detained of a criminal act and stay waiting to be deported it's a universal procedure at immigration office and it's not only Japan. And this 22 y/o guy has criminal history in his younger age he was sent to a juvenile reformatory on charges of fraud and after his release in August 2016 placed in the immigration detention center. So, where in the world will accept criminals to live in the country, here who the person is detained or the backgrounded country. I know a few "foreigners" who are born in Japan and I know some of them are completely innocent of any crime, not against to live in japan, and only speak Japanese. In this case comes to be a discrimination not to be Japanese by appearance. Immigration authority has that feudal tradition to allow only "Japanese" to live in Japan under that national isolation of "Sakoku" for almost 300 years in Edo period. Now, it's going to be another Meiji Restoration to find a better future to accept more foreigners dwelling Japan, just not easy to see daylight how to get it clean and clear. NPO, NGO organizations or the Lawyer association to visualize how to protect those born here "foreigners" and protect them or it will be the same of 300 year + a century of no conclusion to authorize them. That's really sad history in Japan.

Japan is very systematic in all kind of services and restaurants are on the top of them, it's going to be in the level of measured period to those be ranked in stars from 1 to 5, like the hotels. Another thing in Japan is about the kuchikomi's messages, to describe ranking up or down, some opinions are very rigid supporting the rival one, many comparisons. Services to be better it's agreable but tendencies of Japanese services to be too systematic let the waiters/ staffs to be robotic speaking or conducts. (maybe better to have a perfect robot there). In Fukuoka the city I live you can see a lot of Yatais ( food stands or stalls) the food isn't anything special but the atmosphere the best one in the world, not able to be ranked with restaurants but their services aren't bad and they have very friendly approaches to anyone, even foreigners. I recommend you to come to Fukuoka if you have any kuchikomi opinions.

I'm really happy to see Mr. Danny governor of Okinawa prefecture, a son of a US Marine officer and a opponent policy of Abe administration and on Onaga's "spirit," defeating his rival Atsushi Sakima a feudal subordinated person of his lord Mr. Abe, almost to work duties like slavery to LDP...Well, at last surprise and more satisfaction to Japan, Danny be good!

I don't care how much Abe is closer to Trump because any top-leader has a duty to diplomatically get better approaches. The real point that Japan is very protectionist about rice, Japan govt. has compromised years ago to protect the rice agricultural farmers, and it means the prices are higher to compare with other countries, and the imported ones are so cheap to the Japanese standard. So, the taxation becomes very high to balance the Japanese prices. Just thing in USA the price of beef from Brazil is 1/4 cheaper and the quality the same, the equality to the domestic prices is inevitable with the balance of taxation. Is Abe really explaining well to Trump or he is only visiting him to another "fast food" at that Trump's "Empire" building?

Mr. Abe administration is always the elevator system of ups and downs Abe popularity, however, the ministers reshuffled will to be them bear heaven or hell and Abe will just say stay or getway of some issues, one of those ministers will commit some problems, the top-leader can stay there without responsiblity, like Mr. Aso didn't serve quite nothing is Mr. Abe administration, just hanged there. That's really suck!!

It's just another Abe’s fine-sounding speech. Every top-leaders of many countries has the program to talk at the UN assembly and Abe wasn’t an exception. He said about the free trade and a "win-win" relationship with the United States, a "new start" with North Korea soon, the "relationship" with Russia concerning the territorial issue should be resolved and a peace treaty signed. Let's see if his "awaken" dreams will be realized for those speech topic issues before he is in his grave.

Posted in: Almost half of mothers in Tokyo want train cars designed especially for moms and kids, so that they don't have to worry about sideways glances from other passengers when their children cry or act up, according to a Tokyo Metropolitan Government survey. What do you think about this?
