Posted in: China’s 'Little Kyoto' shut down by government after complaints of Japanese culture invasion See in context

Interesting how some Chinese reminisce about their history by visiting "Tang" Little Tokyo. Japanese were the enemies during WW2 but can't forget it was the Communists that inflicted the Cultural Revolution.

Sad truth about child stars is that most become incapable of differentiating people that really care and love them from the ones that manipulate and just want their money. Hopefully her father is the former.

Japanese government should mandate software and tech update to banks that hold x amount of public money every so many years; even phones and TVs become obsolete after so many years.

Can't ignore the fact that most governors in red states (e.g. Florida) ignored mask mandates and shunned vaccination. Every choice results in consequences, good and/or bad.

Despite having different ideology, China and Japan can still be respectful to each other.

Good job Japan for pulling off this difficult feat. Don't think it could have been done anywhere else.

Posted in: Japan's vaccine push ahead of Olympics looks to be too late See in context

Stop being fixated on what hasn’t or should have been done. Think of ways to give at least one dose to everyone especially those who are vulnerable, medical and Olympic related. Every school or majority should hold mass vaccination on premises for students. Bad decision making or lack of , result in terrible outcomes. Japan needs to wake up and start taking action.

Posted in: Man arrested for robbing convenience store says he did it because he was hungry See in context

This is sad. Must be hard to find work due to age stigma. Why can't Japan put all those abandoned houses to better use? Perhaps government can negotiate with owners to give up these properties in lieu of astronomical inheritance tax or property tax and build more discreet homeless shelters where people like this man can stay until he gets his footing. If he can save up some money on rent, then maybe he can afford to buy more food? Expensive housing is an universal problem.

People seem to forget Megan is an actress and Morgan is a TV celebrity. They both make lots of money on creating attention and stories(fictional or not) to promote themselves. Enough said about both.

Posted in: Supermarket slip lawsuit ruling influenced by size and color of pumpkin tempura See in context

Sad ruling for Japan. People will start suing for every little liability whether it was their own fault or not. Lawyers might or might not get paid but something is better than nothing and they wouldn't know unless they sue.

It would have been more interesting if they made it Haiku-like. It would have killed two birds with one stone; catchy and PR of Japanese culture.

Japan first and foremost must invest in tech infrastructure. Finance and tech go hand in hand today. How can a country be a finance hub without ironclad secure and reliable tech infrastructure?

Not only should Mongolia worry about the Indo-Pacific but should be worried about their own country. With so many Han Chinese living in Inner Mongolia, Mongolians and ethnic Mongolians should be careful that their country won't become another Tibet.

By financing coal, Japan could look to itself every time a huge storm/hurricane pounds the islands. If you're not consciously taking action to curve fossil fuel dependency then you are the problem contributing to climate change.

Posted in: Japan's elderly workers suffer as pandemic closes businesses See in context

Government could start building more communal housing with shared bathroom and kitchen/dining space and charge nominal rent. Japan has enough dilapidated houses and buildings to be bought out, crushed and rebuild. At least it will give these people a roof over their head and relief of not becoming homeless during this difficult time. Government should do this now in anticipation of prolonged recession to follow even after pandemic.

Posted in: Japan's exports slump as coronavirus hits U.S., Chinese demand See in context

Most of what Japan exports would be considered non-essential things. Do people need to renew cars, game console, phones etc...every 2-3 years? Most likely not, especially in times like this. Perhaps Japanese government could focus more on supporting and stoking local agriculture and producing enough grain, cattle, pigs, poultry to feed its people. Food shortage would be the next likely fallout from this pandemic.
