Since then Abe has declined to say whether he had done so

closet brown noser

Just delete the “peace” part and make it a celebrity award. Then we can move along.

Perfect! Brilliant!

Last week, a video posted online showed an employee of convenience store 7-Eleven spitting something into a pot of oden, while a FamilyMart employee was filmed licking items and putting them into bags on the shelf.

I prefer the naked dancing baito to one of these 2...

Nothing like selling out the thing held most sacred in your culture.

Hell, he's sold the whole country to his cronies, what does he care about the emperor? in Abe's mind, Nippon Kaigi is the thing held most sacred in his culture.

How will he bow to the Emperor?

Probably spit in his hand and extend it with a "put er there Emp!"

A nominated Nobel being first to meet the Emperor, Abe just Looooves his hamburger, golf buddy.

I'm sure Trump's butt has been permanently imprinted with Abe's face. Jeez- not even dogs roll over and faun over their masters as much as this PM has over this president.

Hardly a cracking start for the new Emperor, hope he feels poorly and avoids what his handlers have forced on him. Perhaps step down as there is a precedent and live an uncontrolled life?

I wish that for him. He is a political prisoner of the establishment that seeks to advance their own agenda with his legitimacy. This has been going on since the Edo period with the Tokugawa shogunate.

Because they're used on forms (for date of birth, etc.) as abbreviations for Meiji, Taisho, Showa and Heisei.

Thanks for that beautiful!

Posted in: Activists file suit to stop dolphin hunting in Japan See in context

There's a fishing village called Lamakera in Indonesia. It used to hunt Manta Rays.

They stopped hunting, modified their boats and now take tourists to watch the Rays.

Whale watching is a growing business in Japan too. If a village in Indonesia can do it, sure the folks in Taiji can do it too.

They can if they want to. But it seems that being stubborn is part of Japanese culture

I’ve yet to meet any Japanese person express a liking for dolphin meat.

And I have never seen dolphin meat here,in the hundreds of times that I have been to supermarkets in Japan

Hunting dolphins is not part of Japanese culture and those that say it is are misleading us.....

Actually brother, if you've watched the cove, they tell us that alot of "whale meat being sold is actually dolphin.."

Sorry Aly, they're unlikely to go for anything beginning with M,T,S or H (though I think 平和would be lovely)

Hi cleo! I'm curious.. Why is that?

How about 更新or 更改 (renewal), 更界(new world) , 安界 (peaceful/stable world) or 安代 (age of peace).

All amazing names! Very lovely!

Posted in: Ghosn hires new defense team in change of strategy See in context

Japan's legal system is a Banana Republic in itself. The world is laughing at this undemocratic process. As always, the brainwashed Japanese society side with injustice.

> A person is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. Yet, such a concept is so difficult to accept by Japan. Lawless, gangster prosecutors should be investigated for abuse of power.

I couldn't agree more. What really bothers me is the lack of interest in his case from the non Japanese media and the wet noodle response from Macron.

Another way to combine showa 昭和 and heisei 平成 is by using the other 2 kanji and get 成昭 (to become bright or get used to the brightness)..

Posted in: Olympics minister apologizes for saying he was 'really disappointed' over Ikee's leukemia See in context

Watching the reporting of her illness on the telly last night, I was struck that a large proportion of the comments from 'important' were of the 'Oh No the Olympics' hue; it was only after interviews with members of the public emphasised the 'I hope she gets better soon, poor thing' angle that the TV announcers had to point out that Yes Of Course that was the most important thing and all the sports-related comments took it as a given and were looking at the wider picture.

> So not just the LDP (vile though they are): a hefty majority of those with a finger in the pie, it would seem.

Good point cleo! I stand humbly corrected.

Sakurada, who doubles as the government's cybersecurity strategy chief, is no stranger to controversy.

He said he just wanted to complain to Onozuka but got irritated and stabbed him.

Oh ok. That explains it then....

But he denied any intent to kill.

No of course not. He wasn't intending at all to kill him when he stabbed him. He was just giving him a friendly poke with a dangerous weapon, thats all.
