Ashitaba! Great! I love this vegetable. Very interesting. I wish I could find it in Okinawa, but I've never seen it here.

Posted in: The bromance between Abe and Trump has been a bumpy road, but perhaps nothing has embarrassed Abe more than Trump divulging that Abe nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. It makes Abe look craven for toadying to Trump, the least popular U.S. president ever in Japan. See in context

Yes. It does.

This points up the basic flaw in an education system that doesn't make any allowances for individual tastes or abilities. Japanese "education" is the pits!

It doesn't really have only to do with older drivers. There are all types on the road. Crazy kids. Brain dead middle aged guys in white K trucks driving everywhere at 15 kph. Paper drivers from Tokyo, driving rental cars. Regular driving tests that actually test a person's ability to drive would fix it.
But testing for actual ability to DO is a totally new thing in Japanese education :)

Road safety could be greatly improved in this country by getting rid of traffic lights and increasing the number of roundabouts. Much safer.

All we need now is for Trump to echo one of his predecessors and state, "Mission Accomplished!"

It's a new base. If I made the extensions and alterations to my house that they intend to make in Henoko, I would call this a new house. Massive new docks. Runways extending out into the Oura bay. A whole new infrastructure. However you try to downplay it, it's a new base!

Suga declined to comment directly on the referendum and repeated the government's position that it was trying to "ease the burden on the Okinawan people in a clearly transparent way."
Right! By building a new base in Henoko!

I really don't know why Japan Today bothers to post this story. Moon and Kono are just two grumpy old men. Ignore them. If the Emperor apologised for Japan's war crimes, it would certainly ease the tension, but if he did so because he was told to, it would have no meaning whatsoever.

As you say, SJ-san; "Why is it so difficult for him to apologize straightforwardly? Because of the political pressure from the right-wing groups?"
I think you hit the nail on the head.
But I wonder why the South Koreans only go on about the "Comfort Women" issue. That is a tiny and relatively innocuous issue. There were far more serious atrocities committed by the Japanese military in and before WWII that really DO need to be addressed.

Why is it so difficult in Japan?
Pride goes before a fall.
All that Abe, Kono, Aso et al know is blind pride. Their idea of diplomacy is to shout. As voiceofokinawa says, they are the people most responsible for the difficulty in Korea-Japan relations. They have yet to learn that the 1930's went by long ago.

Artificial intelligence is only useful if there is actual intelligence there in the first place. Intelligence is almost totally absent in the Japanese education system and mental “health” industry. Simply put, they haven't a clue what they are doing.
What is AI? A substitute for God? As other posters have pointed out, another convenient scapegoat?

Why don't they get Nakasone to apologise. He's the one who started it:

When teaching a class of Japanese "salarymen," the most important thing to realise is that none of them have graduated puberty.

In a rapid changing world, only adaptive ones will survive. Luckily, Japan has an adaptive Abe.
Your post was sarcastic too, I guess.

Dear oh dear, all this negative comment! No doubt Abe will apply his successful diplomatic techniques and use his powers of persuasion that have won him so much success in the economic field.

Vaping works. Two friends of mine, one really addicted to tobacco, quit painlessly after a few months. Neither has smoked for several years. It works, don't knock it!

Posted in: He serves as deputy prime minister, and as finance minister, is responsible for state finances. His message and his mindset, which have been spread throughout Japan and overseas, are an embarrassment. See in context
The same thing could be said about most of Abe's cabinet, particularly Abe. He chose them, didn't he?

Well, I expect he will get disciplined, in his turn.

in order to decide you need to understand.
Present them with ALL the data, good and bad and THEN let them decide.
British people didn't understand - they didn't have all the data. The referendum was therefore meaningless.

When something like this comes to light, you can bet there are several more lurking, waiting to be discovered. Why do Abe and Aso look like it's 24 hours to judgement day.
Perhaps it is.
