Inspired by big corps rectifying the climate crisis would be a better use of that money.

Priorities on earth before wasteful space exploration on The Moon.

Posted in: 'King Kazu' renews Yokohama FC contract at nearly 54 See in context

Saw him play against Gifu FC a couple of years ago.

He came on the pitch for 10 -15 minutes but didn't really have much to do.

He is more of a mascot and fan draw rather than an effective attacking force now.

Still the king though!

@ TokyoJoe

That guy down the street with the ferrari is paying the lions share of the tax that this money is coming from.

As in the case of Amazon/Google & Apple we know that this is NOT the case!

The rich dodge as much tax as they can ..hence they are rich!

Posted in: Virus emergency prompts cuts in domestic flights, bullet trains See in context

@Sven Tokyo has a massive population it will always be overcrowded on the trains and buses!

If you really want to avoid it perhaps leave Tokyo would be best in the long run!

They are not 'purposefully' making them crowded mate.

They are reducing them coz it's a waste of jet fuel and power to send a plane or train from A to B with hardly any passengers on it.

The shinkansen is still pretty empty and even if some services are cut will NOT lead to overcrowding during this COVID19 emergency.

Shinkansens and planes are not crowded that's why they are cutting services..

It makes perfect sense to cut services!

Not shameful.

@ TokyoJoe it is not our job to hand bars envelopes of money to keep them afloat..The LDP is better at shady back room deals and brown envelope passing..

$91,000 x 12 not a big price to pay considering that Japan has wasted $16 billion dollars on the Olympics which will never happen.

Posted in: Gov't to consider new COVID-19 state of emergency declaration See in context

Just look at the U.K and how well lockdowns to tier 4 have gone.

Mass unemployment,suicides way up,

businesses gone bust,massive mental health issues.

For all those who say stay home for those who cannot telework and will lose their jobs what about them?

As usual it is those in a good financial position that push for a stricter measures.

@ Reckless What utter nonsense!!

If the vaccine is rolled out and COVID19 is brought under control the borders will open ( especially to the rich Chinese tourists) and the foreign money( sorry people) will be once again welcome here again!

Posted in: French investigators to question Carlos Ghosn in Lebanon See in context

He is possibly guilty of fraud but he would never get a fair trial here under the Japanese 'guilty until proven innocent' legal system and archaic long detention ( incarceration) in torturous conditions.

Why is it that high ranking Japanese politicians and elites don't receive the same kind of treatment before charges are made against them that Ghosn did?

Perhaps or should I say it is probable that Ghosn was singled out as a foreigner and the authorities had a bone to pick with him as did the disgusting Nissan executives.
