Never thought this could happen in Japan.

Indeed a sad day for Japan and the World. Rest in peach Abe san.

Posted in: Google: Flight search tool can help you fly 'greener' See in context

In my opinion, the biggest factor is the no. of people on that flight. If the flight is nearly full, the fuel consumption per person will be good.

Why is this even an issue? The whole world allows keeping different names, even all the developing, or underdeveloped countries. Just allow it and move forward. Stop wasting our tax money on the same thing every few months.

Have been hearing this for over 5 years now, they always come up with clever ways of keeping their phones locked.

Posted in: French father goes on hunger strike for children 'abducted' by Japanese wife See in context

Saying something about Japan's Justice system is totally useless. The country is not ready for a change by any measurable standard.

I just want to show my support for this guy. Even if he had some friction with his wife, the court should not deny him access to his kids. That is beyond torture.

Posted in: Japan to impose 10-day quarantine on travelers from India, 5 other countries See in context

It's sad to see the whole world go crazy. I thought the world would be able to work out a standard set of protocols that every country follows.

Anyways, different treatment of foreigners vs. Japanese citizens is not good. The virus does not care if you are nihonjin or not. Anyone who is a resident of Japan or has a good reason to visit Japan should be allowed to come and follow the exact same protocols for quarantine that Japanese citizens do.

Posted in: Who fired rockets against ordinary citizens first? Our hearts are with Israel. See in context

Japan should stay out of this, I believe very few people here understand this conflict. It is sad to see the world we live in, where the world allows the oppressor to do whatever they like with advanced weaponry and does not allow the oppressee to even shout back. This is our so called developed and civilized world.

Posted in: Japan considers prioritizing Olympic athletes for COVID-19 vaccination See in context

I strongly believe that Japan has the capability and it should be one of the largest producer of COVID vaccines, but unfortunately we are having shortages of syringes to administer injects. This is extremely disappointing. Not sure why this is so low on Govt agenda.

Shocked to see that Japan is 120. I thought it would be even lower than that.

Posted in: Grief hasn't subsided for some survivors of tsunami See in context

A truly tragic event. This event has shaped the nation for many years to come. I hope we never forget this event and always prepare and plan for such disasters even if it means cutting back on some other infrastructure.

Posted in: COVID-19 inoculations in Japan off to snail pace start due to vaccine, syringe shortages See in context

Shortages of syringes, that is crazy. I hope they are doing more vaccinations per day than they were doing testing. Being an advanced industrial nation, this is beyond my understanding.

Posted in: Swiss to vote on whether to ban full facial coverings in public See in context

The whole world looks like this anyways. Freedom of speech/clothing/expression should be given to everyone as long as that does not affect anyone else emotionally or physically.

The amount of testing and the cost of getting tested privately in Japan is extremely disappointing.

Posted in: 2-year-old girl dies after being left in car for 7 hours See in context

Not sure why car companies have not stepped up to solve this issue with technology, this kind of incidents are common occurrences and something as simple as temperature/humidity sensor, motion sensor would go a long way.

Posted in: Ghosn's escape prompts talk of more curbs in Japan's strict justice system See in context

I feel this will not change anything in Japan and probably won't roll any heads here too. Changing something is like accepting some part of the blame. Instead, why not blame everything on foreigners and foreign companies. Saves a lot of trouble.

With the requirement and conditions for the Visa I did not expect anyone will apply. So 219 is a huge success.

Next solution would be to increase the sales tax to 15%. We are still waiting for addressing the root cause of problems not treating the symptoms.

Posted in: Gov't to urge firms to help employees undergoing fertility treatment See in context

What does the Japanese Govt do: urge, suggest, and recommend. I seldom see a real action on the part of the Govt. There are so many real problems that needs real actions.

Japan needs to stop presenting tourism as if they are doing a favor to the outside world by letting them visit Japan.

@Kenji, yes this is an act of war. But some times invading another country is declared to be an act of peace. What a hypocrite world we live in.
