The aggressor doesnt get to decide if theyve apologized enough. If the victim claims that they have not apologized enough, then you have not apologized enough.

Posted in: Samurai sword in new Japan Self-Defense Force emblem causing controversy See in context

that sword isn't even unique to Japan. Koreans had it centuries before it was introduced to Japan (sword enthusiast here) Anyway, for many countries, its a reminder of the gunto , which was used to behead civilians all throughout Asia and the Pacific Islands. I say remove it.

nishikori clearly was not near Wawrinka's level, I wonder if he will ever be. Being a Nishikori fan is hard, when he plays so inconsistently.

Posted in: Abe's Super Mario act gets social media buzzing in Japan See in context

Abe's introduction ruined the video, left a terrible after taste in what was a surprisingly enjoyable olympics. I also love mario, how dare they irreparably taint his image by linking him to Abe

Posted in: After Rio, Tokyo eyes safe, smooth 2020 Olympic Games See in context

remember when Tokyo 2020 was supposed to force the government to focus on remedying Fukushima? only 4 years left and we still have over 200 tons of radioactive water leaking into the ocean daily, and the ice wall revealed to be a failure just a few days ago. Sure the water in Brazil was nasty, but radiation in the rain, food, and oceans is not an improvement. What's worse, there will be way to much focus on putting on a good face for the olympics, that Fukushima will be put on the backburner, when it should be the focus right now. We all knew this would happen.

Posted in: Japan warns China of worsening ties over East China Sea dispute See in context

REMEMBER how peaceful this region was before the war mongers China started pushing their weight around.

Remember how peaceful the region was before Japan decided to destroy the status quo and "nationalize the islands". They deserve every bit of the fallout.

if i were china, i would argue that the radar equipment is necessary for oil field development, as the area and the developments need to be protected from Japanese incursioms. Japan needs to stop provoking China. what could it possibly do, with its pitiful military. drag usa into its mess?

Posted in: H.I.S. cancels travel with 'beautiful girls' campaign after complaints See in context

“The concept behind the campaign was to introduce a fresh and innovative in flight experience.”

Nothing fresh or innovative about treating women and girls as objects.

“Foreign passengers traveling on the same flight may interpret the situation in a strange manner.”

"this may make Japan look bad" isn't the primary reason why this sort of behavior is unacceptable
