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.

Tried play in a Latin American where your team is not being destroyed and defeated all the way. Japan team improve a lot and I see great future if they keep improving all the way...

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)

Not suprising as in France there is a series of allegations and rumours surrounding Ghosn as well, it seems the French also particularly fond of him as well.

Regardless whether he is Lebanese, Brazilian (it seems Brazilian elites and leaders have never ending corruption scandals these days) or Japanese, cheating and corruptions should not be tolerated.

Posted in: N Korean official urges Japan to apologize over forced labor See in context

Coming from a country that right now force their own citizens into forced labor and concentration camps such as manual labor in other countries such as in Middle East, Africa and Russia is kinda ironic.

Posted in: Okinawa rally mourns governor, opposes U.S. base relocation See in context

It's the conservative leadership in Japan who prefer to have US military to keep China in check but not on the main island of Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku or Hokkaido. Okinawa is perfect because is very2 far away from Japan main island and being ruled by Yamato from its former Ryukyuan kingdoms with its own unique language and culture.

It's not just in Japan. A lot of countries especially from four seasons nation are underestimating the dangerous effect of the sun. 93 deaths are also recorded in Quebec Canada so far

Im very realistic about any countrries participating in WC, history shows that the coaches will employ any legal tactics to win or advanced (Germany in 1982 for example). Truthfully Im a little bit bored with Japan vs Poland fight but hey it is what it is and whether they win or lose against Belgium or not we'll see....

We Malaysians regardless whether you are Malay, Indians, Chinese as well as fellow Sabahan and Sarawakian fought hard in the elections to at least get rid of Barisan Nasional who have been in power since independence and with Najib and his wife Rosmah which faces corruption (murders included) it's easy for those outside of Malaysia to be downright negative about it.

Not too worried about Japan's handling of major international events, if not they are one of the most predictable, safe and reliable hosts of any major sporting events. Well, people says bad thing about Rio, but during the games it went smoothly without any major hiccups (post-olympics is a different story though)
