Dear South Koreans, now is the time to STAY in your country, why on earth they feel the need to travel overseas now puzzled me as most countries already restrict and banning their citizens from travelling to South Korea.

Japanese artist and perform the best in expressing their freedom of expression when they are not tied in to any government sponsored project. Example is Hirokazu Koreeda who are not bothered to get Japanese government's recognition.

2.99 million foreigners visited Japan last month, up 5.6 percent on-year. The biggest proportion were 1.06 million Chinese, up 19.5 percent to take up the slack. So, in short, business as usual for Japan's tourism, in fact it's increased ironically.

Posted in: S Korea warns of security impact if dropped from Japan's easy-trade list See in context

The irony of wanting to have easy access to your precious/sensitive material without having to fill up paperwork (which China, India and Taiwan are doing just now with no complaint) and yet constantly bashing and hating and not fullfiling the agreement. Of course Japan would say no more close friend for you!

Posted in: S Korea warns of security impact if dropped from Japan's easy-trade list See in context

ASEAN countries, Taiwan who are friendlier towards Japan all get normal treatment. And we are just fine. Just think about it, South Korea enjoys the preferential treatment since 2004 despite having negative view just demoted to be just normal like the rest of us.

Posted in: Copa America guests Japan, Qatar still alive before final decisive games See in context

I suspect this will not be a complaint if the guest countries (regardless from which continent) are not doing well and is beaten, but arises when ironically the guest countries perform well and supposedly Latin American giants do poorly in the tournament. (btw Japan was invited 20 years ago so it is not something new at all)
