Posted in: Koike to declare candidacy for re-election as Tokyo governor See in context

Moving forward Japan will face some tough times and I don't feel confident in our ability to face those challenges with Koike at the wheel. Governor I support her position and realection. Not as prime Minister though.

Posted in: Japan wants U.S. to extradite Americans who helped Ghosn flee See in context

Quote "Japan has issued arrest warrants for Michael and Peter Taylor for allegedly helping a criminal escape."

If Japanese citizens came to the USA to help a CEO criminal escape the country I promise the Americans would ask for the same in return.

Quote "How did we get here?"

It's called the Plaza Accord. The Lost decades.

Japan was 80% of America's GDP in 1985 before we sign it, Japan focused on its economy, would have surpassed the Americans by 1996.

Uncle Sam said, We can't have that. We can't let the Japanese have a better economy then us. Enter the Plaza Accord which we signed in 1985. That was the end of Japan impressive rise. Trillions lost since we signed it. Decade after decade, prime Minister after prime Minister trying to keep Japan afloat from sinking.

Posted in: Singer Hikaru Utada opens a discussion on racism on Japanese Twitter See in context

Japan is more welcoming, more polite, you won't get attacked physically, people won't spit on you or destroy your property. I've seen Asians end up in the hospital with brutal attacks both in America and Europe. That's the difference between Japan and other countries. You won't get shot either, won't find videos of police laying on your neck for 9 minutes. Facts do matter.

More comments focus on him wearing a mask then the article itself. Make sense.

This stimulus is necessary and it should be obvious to anyone with half a brain.

Is the CCP using this as a political tool? Yes

Does serious Racism exist in Australia especially against Asians? Yes

Hundreds of racist attacks happen in Australia every year! Their government won't even admit this is happening.

Black lives matter and so does Asian lives.

Posted in: Japan hopes to draft G7 statement on China security legislation on Hong Kong See in context

I don't see them backing down on Hong Kong. The one party two system was temporary to begin with. What they signed with Britain in the 90s giving Hong Kong more freedom would only be valid legally until 2050.

Taiwan we should help, it's not under CCP rule and they are pro-Japan. I'm in favor of helping them.

I don't feel the same way about Hong Kong, several years ago protesters from that city landed on the Senkaku Islands, with signs saying it belongs to China, they care about those Islands belonging to China.

Quote "he was motivated by rage after being harassed on an internet forum"

This is why we need to pass laws against this type of bullying and harassment.

Education in schools should be made mandatory on social media dangers and online bullying for the new generation.

Posted in: Head of 'comfort women' shelter in S Korea found dead See in context

Dear Nippon government,

How much more evidence do you need before you realize S. Korea is using the comfort women issue as an Anti-Japan tool

They also want to change the name of Japan Sea.

Want to go back on aggrements signed.

Dont like our flag.

Illegally occupied Japanese Island in the 50s after Japan became a pacifist country and WW2 just ended. Opportunistic is Koreas middle name.

They have respect for North Korea, China, Russia, America. While they have infinite hate and disrespect for Japan, Koreans set themselves on fire that's how much they hate Japan.

Do you know what those countries don't do? Why Korea respects them?

They dont show weakness. They don't apologies. They don't pay compensation.

China is responsible and helped North Korea during the war. America and Russia devided Korea in half. They have better relations with all those countries compared to Japan. Fact

Posted in: Japan opts not to join U.S., others in criticizing China for Hong Kong law See in context

Dear Hong Kong,

Remember the Senkaku Islands?

It was people from Hong Kong landing there on the Island, claiming it belongs to them. Fact

People from Hong Kong bashing Japan, wanting Japan to give back the islands....

Enjoy Hong Kong people, don't expect Japan's support when your Anti-Japan, don't expect in the last moment after years of bashing Japan, for us to save you or support you.

HONG KONG will never focus on SENKAKU ISLANDS AGAIN! FREEDOM IS MORE IMPORTANT! FACT

Should a country burn down, business looted on mass, cars burned down, people attacked, police attacked, news reporters attacked, broken windows everywhere, small businesses already affected by COVID19 ready to reopen now their business is up in flames, everything stolen, broken, burning or graffiti sprayed everywhere.

Yeah... That's what justice looks like.

Posted in: Approval rate for Abe's cabinet at 39%; lowest in 2 years: poll See in context

If you focus on facts and not fear mongering. If you focus on reality instead of what if this happened, what if that happened.... If you look the at numbers, the facts, Japan succeeded!

For all the fear mongering, Abe bashing, the government failed comments, again... If you look at facts and the numbers Japan succeeded!

Do some research, learn some facts, compare the numbers with other countries instead of just fake news propaganda and you'll have a better answer to what's going on with Japan coronavirus real numbers.

Posted in: The death of 'Terrace House' cast member Hana Kimura and Japan’s mental health struggles See in context

Sad to see Hana go out like this.

She was a great girl and she allowed a minor incident over a costume being damage by Kai get in the way of a wonderful and successful life.

I believe being lock down, living by herself, has contributed to her online focus on a small amount of negative comments about 100 a day, which she mentioned herself. In her last message she mentioned she wanted to be loved. Many more people loved her, cared about her, then the negative few comments magnified under isolation and living alone.

1.Laws should be passed against cyberbullying.

2.People who appear on TV if they deal with some kind of negative backlash should be provided with psychologist and a life coach at least for a several months after the show ends.

When you appear on a show you should be prepared for positive feedback but negative feedback as well. Only expecting support and kind words that's not the Internet of today sadly.

Posted in: Abe weighs skipping visit to Russia next month in favor of G7 summit See in context

Please skip Russia Prime Minister Abe.

Russia is leading Japan by the nose. They are playing games with Japan with fake promises of giving back islands they took illegally from Japan at the end of the war.

All investments in Russia should stop, look at a map please. Do you see Russia? It doesn't even look like a country on a map anymore. IT LOOKS LIKE A GROWING CANCER.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka adds voice to protests over police brutality in U.S. See in context

I've lived in the U.S. for close to 10 years, I wasn't a tourist but actually lived in America.

When it comes to race relations alot of progress still needs to be made.

Do you have police that makes stupid mistakes? Yes

Should you burn down cities, cars, destroy property, act violent, attack police officers or other people. Noo

No excuse for Violence and destroying people's business!

Let me translate for You=EVERY TIME A POLICE OFFICER DOES SOMETHING STUPID AND A BLACK MAN DIES... AMERICA WILL BURN!

Would the same apply if a Japanese man, Chinese, Latino, or any other minority receive the same attention and focus in America? No

COVID19 has unleashed a storm of Racism, attacks, violence towards Asian people. Not one individuals but thousands! They don't talk about it, no one gets arrested, no one cares, they don't even look into it.

Some of this trolls will hate prime Minister Abe no matter what he does.

Facts matter? No

Does it matter Japan has been a success story when it comes to this virus? No

Death toll among the lowest among developing nations and Japan is the #1 country in the world with the Oldest People on Earth! Some are 100!

Japan after China has been the 2nd country to report infections early on, by now millions should be Infected and tens of thousands dead! NEVER HAPPENED.

Look at that. Our workers doing a great job, Japan being a success!

Japan is not falling like many predicted on here, the millions and billions of Japanese who are supposed to be infected and dying DID NOT HAPPEN. does that matter when you troll Japan? No

Japan should be consider a success story. Fact

If you listen to the trolls for weeks now they said Japan is a failure. How their half of country Korea is a success story and Japan a huge failure. Even the foreign media started to eat the Korean propaganda.

Posted in: Japanese reality show 'Terrace House' cast member dies See in context

Terrace House has been one of the very few shows to promote Japan. Those who never watch it think it's another reality show where they have sex all the time and drink until they fall under the table. False

Show has been positive for Japan image. True

Foreign audience want to know how Japanese behave, date, socialize around one another. This show has been the only one to promote that part. True

The anti-Japan crowd hates anything that promotes Japan. If you can destroy Japan tomorrow they will cheer with happiness and joy. True

Posted in: GSDF conduct live fire drills near Mt Fuji See in context

Yes it's necessary if you live in reality and it's 2020.

China has increased it's military spending by another 6.6% this year announced on the news this week. A military budget of 180$ billion dollars in Chinese Yuan that's probably more like 300$ billion.

Then you have the infinite land Russia, a country which we never signed a peace treaty, a country which has stolen land from Japan, and always seems to want more when the opportunity shows up. Took Crimea back by force.

North Korea a country of only 20 million people, super poor in terms of economics and development, but strong enough to fire missiles over Japan, test nuclear weapons, threaten Japan with Nuclear destruction.

South Korea. The most anti-Japan country in the world! The more apologies you give, the more money you pay, the more Hate they have towards Japan. They walk out of aggrements time and again! I trust S. Korea to keep their promise as much as I trust North Korea to keep a promise, agreement signed 0.

Posted in: Has Japan dodged the coronavirus bullet? See in context

Few days ago weeks ago so much Anti-Japan propaganda.

If you listen to the comments millions of Japanese have it but didn't get tested.

If you listen to the comments you would think tens of thousands of Japanese have died, but it's not the case!

S. Korea was seen as a success to many Japan haters!

If you look at their population compared to Japans population, the numbers of death is very close. Does it matter when you hate Japan? No

Posted in: Abe announces lifting of state of emergency for 39 prefectures See in context

Japan is a very densely populated, "super aged" society with the world's highest density of citizens over 65. It is also close to China, where the SARS-CoV-2 virus first appeared, and received 925,000 Chinese visitors in January plus a further 89,000 in February. Consequently, Japan would be expected to have a high number of infections.

Japan has done an incredible job. With only 668 death cases. Some consider S. Korea a huge success but look at their population number and then look at Japan's numbers.

A lot of this companies like Sony, Toyota, Nintendo should be worth 17x times more then their actual value. Japanese companies got robbed with the Plaza Accord.

Before signing that deal Japan was 80% of America's GDP. Now it's barely 25%. Trillions was lost in wealth. The Lost decades.

Posted in: Coronavirus concerns overwhelming Japan's suicide hotlines See in context

This workers are essential at a time like this.

People being shut in, not working or making money, not being able to meet with friends or even family members, some will go to a dark place, it's good to have a place to call without being judge or freaking out your family that you'll commit suicide.

Thank you for the hard work. The government should definitely give full support and expand the program if necessary.

Posted in: Troubled nuclear fuel processing plant in Aomori OK'd by regulators See in context

If you look at all forms of energy, including renewables like wind or sollar. Nuclear power is still the gold standard if you care about the environment, if you have a 127 million people and your country is a first class manufacturing power.

Newer generation nuclear reactors are very safe compared to Fukushima reactor that was decades old about to shutdown in the next 5 years and hit by a magnitude 9 Earthquake and then a Giant Tsunami. Let's look at facts and what's in the best interest of Japan. Nuclear power is one of them.

Posted in: Toyota profit plunges on virus outbreak but recovery expected See in context

He always says something negative... save your energy. He would rather see Toyota be gone, fall, collapse.

If we don't support our companies they will be gone!

If we don't defend our companies their assets will be sold because of the past.

If we don't defend our companies their technology will be stolen, copied, used to undermine Japan.

With gas prices being so low I expect Toyota to do well once this virus and shutdown passes.
