No one found out because it's cultural. You don't mess with other peoples business. Americans have a hard time understanding the concept. Sawaranu kami ni tatarinashi.

Unfortunately, Japan's increased nationalism is directly tied to a more assertive China. As China continues to rise in economic and military might, Japan will have no other way but to counter act the perceived threat. There is no way out of this.

With Hashimoto's recent remarks, China's Okinawa comments, and this...I am convinced "stupid" is the word to use when describing some of those in power. The wise saying persisits. The old make war, the young suffer for it.

"Although the Japanese government purchase was ostensibly aimed reducing tensions".

Give me a break. Kurihara was real estate investor hundreds of millions in debt. His family owned part of the island chain. Ishihara needed a burning platform for his unfulfilled dreams of becoming PM. Kurihara needed money. Ishihara needed a reason.

Purchase to "reduce tensions"? I think not.

Here I thought China had a game plan. If China is to talk about Okinawa, then talk about Tibet first. Foot in mouth. Dunce hat on. Real slick China. Real slick.

What is interesting is from what I understand, most Japanese do not feel Okinawans are Japanese.

Yay...another step in stirring up resentment and furthering distrust between Pacific neighbors. Great job. Let's finish off the day by saying Japan biological experiments on the Chinese during WWII were also necessary.

Posted in: Why do Japanese work such long hours? See in context

It's actually a myth that the Japanese work long total hours than Americans. If you count up all the hours in one year, Americans are on par. What's even more surprising is that Greeks total hours worked in one year surpasses both the Japanese and Americans. Greeks are stereotyped as lazy.

I have tried and tried to think of the Muslim religion with fairness, but in the end my thoughts always returns to it being so unbelievably backwards, intolerant, violent.

Posted in: Japan's new envoy to China urges stronger economic ties See in context

@edojin Really? You think Japan gives to China because of the goodness of its heart? Think again. It's business. Japanese firms invest in China because it benefits Japan. One can argue about China's questionable motives, but don't mistake the reason for Japanese investment in China. Get your story straight.

Posted in: Making a point See in context

Stimulus to do what!? This was the failed policies from the 90s and 2000s. Build more roads, train tracks, bridges? Control the Central Bank!? Is that really the answer while Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sharp are all getting their clocks cleaned? What about small business initiatives to bring back some of the innovation we saw from Japan after the war? What about pension reform? What about exciting the younger generation with hope instead of how they all see their lives now with a future of being overworked, underpaid salary workers? How about a real talk about Japan's energy needs?

Posted in: Shinzo Abe: Comeback kid with conservative agenda See in context

Abe-san, what is your plan? - "Hmm make Japan strong of course." How do you plan to do that? - "By making Japan strong, of course." Any details? - "Yes, by making Japan strong. It is time." Specifics? - "I mentioned building more roads, interfering with the Bank of Japan more. But yes, make Japan strong." Anything else? - "We will make Japan strong by defeating Noda and his wretched party."

Conclusion? - "I'll try to stay PM without any real ideas as long as I can."

It's time to introduce some technologies to bring handguns to the 21st century. Enough is enough. I believe in gun ownership, but I also believe we can no longer remain idle in the wake of these mass killings.

Introduce RFID or biometic smart guns to control their use and ban all firearms without such technologies.

Long term-wise, introduce technologies that make guns automatically shutdown when approaching schools or malls.

Posted in: LDP's Abe pledges to revitalize Japan, strengthen military See in context

Ok Abe-san, let's see. Nuclear power issue, punt. Debt issue, punt. aging nation, punt. Empty rhetoric, in massive amounts. Specifics on turning the economy around (besides buying construction bonds), none. Strengthening the "Coast Guard" to defend Senkaku while the Chinese strengthens military class ships, pure genius, like investing in knives for a gun fight.

Posted in: Ishihara calls for nuclear-armed Japan See in context

Here's the deal. We put Ishihara on Senkaku with a paper model of a nuclear device. He will defend the island, slay the evil Chinese, be elected PM, and Japan will once again reverse the decades old decline. Banzai.

What would Ishihara do? Oh yes, his answer to trade issues would be to build a nuclear bomb. Genius!

Posted in: How double-dealing sparked Japan-China island dispute See in context

I respect Japantoday for posting this article. For the most part, Japan's media tries hard to hide embarrassing news like this. This article proves the "patriots" of Japan are nothing more than rats watching out for themselves. It's just sad, while in Japan, the fear these days is all about China this and China that, but the truth of the matter is, the greatest threat to Japan now is from within.

Posted in: Ishihara formally launches new Party of the Sun See in context

Japanese people think Ishihara is helping Japan. The truth is, he only helps himself. His ambition to be PM has cause Japan nothing but trouble these past years. Look at the recent attempted "purchase" of Senkaku and the fallout from all the companies doing business with China? What's the plan now Ishihara? Bang the drums of war further while ignoring the real problems of Japan (that is aging and debt)? Time to step aside, because the chances of you becoming the next PM is about the same as you becoming a smart person.
