Posted in: S Korean students shave heads in protest over Japan's Fukushima water release plan See in context

I wonder how some of the comments would look when Korea would release contaminated water into the ocean. I guess in that case imbibing the water would be life threatening and the death blow for the fishing industry of all Asia.

Posted in: Head of Tokyo Olympics again says Games will not be canceled See in context

Maybe someone should tell that head that Tokyo is hosting the games, Tokyo does not own them.

Anyway, the games will be held, when that much money is involved the health of the participants, athletes and officials does not matter. I am also sure that there will be a nice memorial service for the people that get the decease there and die of it, or maybe not because if someone dies it is almost certain that the death has nothing to do with Covik-19.

Posted in: 'Please drink' treated Fukushima water, China asks Aso See in context

Question: Is contaminated water from Fukushima less harmful because other nations also did it in the past?

Also using China’s contribution to world pollution as a justification or excuse for what Japan is planning does not really improve the global environment, does it.

Posted in: Princess Mako's boyfriend to settle financial dispute with mom's ex-fiance See in context

That is what you get if a bunch of stone age politicians and bureaucrats decide what the members of the imperial family think, say and do. I wonder if ever one member of this family has the guts to say NO to them and does what she/he thinks is best for her/his own good.

Posted in: Blinken slams North Korea's human rights condition See in context

Mister Biden is busy making friends, I was afraid that the time would come when I would start thinking Trump was not that bad after all. Does he think his calling Mr. Putin a murderer while most of us still remember war crimes committed by American soldiers in the middle east, slamming China for its human rights record while the shadow of Guantanamo is still lingering will promote world peace. His only problem could be that China is an economical and military superpower nowadays and not ready to take bullying anymore. I guess real sanctions could hurt the US more than they would hurt China.

Hello, you two, be careful not to go too far or the British people may find that they can do just fine without the royals and you know without the royals you market value may drop quite a bit and you both may need a new business idea.

And why the fuss about your baby not getting a title, if the royals are as bad as you make them it is probably better off without one.

Posted in: Shizuoka Pref bans teachers from personal communication with students on social media See in context

What kind of school is this, where teachers and students are only allowed to talk about matters that concern the school or the education? Certainly not a school I would like my kids to attend! Education of pupils has a lot to do with trust, how to trust a person that you are not allowed to communicate with.

Sorry, but what are you dreaming at night, do you really believe that anyone of sound mind is making travel arrangements? Maybe some do but I bet none of them will pay her/his travel expenses her/himself.

Suga also said, "I firmly believe that it is 'a free and open order based on the rule of law,' not 'force or coercion,' that will bring peace and prosperity to the region and the world."

That would be the first time that shooting would bring about peace and prosperity!

a Jan. 4 12:57 pm JST

The Liberal Democratic Party is center-left. There is even a secretary general, Nikai, who is in bed with China. It's like Mitch McConnell in the US. The era of political parties being right or left is over.

If the LDP is center-left, I am really afraid how a center-right party is going to look like.

Btw, you just contradicted your own statement.

In Hokkaido, the winter is closing in!!!

Really, and it is getting cold there? That really comes as a surprise, there was no way to anticipate this in advance and for this very reason there was no way to prepare for this coming.

What get those so-called experts payed for? And one more question, what do countries that experience real winters every year do?

Posted in: Gov't to extend travel subsidy program until around June See in context

This is a very clever move, first it helps the tourist industry and second it helps to reduce the number of people receiving pensions.

The government gets what it wants higher tax income and reduced pension cost, a win-win situation.

I guess Mister Suga made sure that he stays well protected and is well taken care of in the unlikely case that he himself should catch the virus.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics may allow foreign fans but there will be rules See in context

Cancel that whole thing!

Why throw good money after an already ridiculous amount of bad money.

Do not pretend that those games could be even near to a success and at least try to be honest to the people. Do not waste taxpayer’s money anymore, ask for crowd funding that way people at least know that they throw their coin away. Bach will not like it, it is his organization that benefits most from the Olympics whether the organizers win or lose, the Olympic comity always wins.

I know a couple of people would lose their nice sounding titles and their generous income here in Japan but dismantling the full-blown organization will still take some time and I am certain the Japanese people will be happy to subsidize the remains gladly.

An orine test is evidence of possession?

Well if it's found in your urine you have to take it first and in order to take it you need to possess it, unless somebody administers it to you, that is theoretically possible but considering his past conduct highly unlikely.

Posted in: Japanese language to determine order of Olympic parade of athletes See in context

I guess the only reason that they still pretend the Olympics will happen as scheduled is that many well-paid jobs in Japan and in the Olympic comity are on stage.

Unless an unexpected miracle happens of course!

Posted in: Again, no female contenders in Japan's leadership race See in context


I know equal gender representation in Japanese leadership roles are an issue.... but I'd rather just see someone competent and capable to be in the leadership race - man or woman.

That was a good one!

You are talking about the Japanese Government, are you not?


I do not see any female candidate who is good enough to become next PM. Then what is the problem? Who specifically has been discriminated in the election?

I agree, but unfortunately, I don’t see any male politician that is good enough to become the next PM either.

I guess all the officials in japan have already prepared press releases in their desks that read:

"We deeply apologize for having caused people to distrust (name of the office or organization concerned). We will work to restore the trust."

And after that, business as usual!

Considering the historical good relations that Japan maintains with China I think Japan is in a perfect position to take the lead on this issue.

How do we call this comment? Is it a more subtle form of bullying?

If you have nothing to say against the content of a message start questioning its trues or the motives of the messenger.
