Posted in: California says film, TV production can resume June 12 See in context

I imagine it would have to be a ''clean room'' style movie complex. All working staff/families will have to quarantine and then live on the lots to avoid mass infections from happening.

Posted in: Are you optimistic for the Japanese economy this year? See in context

With so much happening in Japan for 2020, it can only bode well for this year. Although, 2021 may be somewhat a disappointment with the end of those big events.

Posted in: IMF urges Japan to double consumption tax to 20% by 2050 See in context

Does the International Monetary Fund really wish to Bankrupt the Japanese Economy? Having a Consumption Tax at 20 Percent at any time will be grounds for going broke. Japan never changed its internal taxes on its citizens. With 20 Percent on Consumption it will amount to a total tax on the people of Japan of 70 to 80 Percent. No one can live in such hardship.

Posted in: Should Japan pay more to Washington for hosting U.S. bases? See in context

Well, if the U.S.A. Military is not paid more, then the U.S.A. Military can leave the far east asia to Russia and China. Lets see if South Korea and Japan can fend off all the incursions that will happen when there is no American Troops there to keep both parties in check. Russia will no longer negotiate with Japan about the islands. In fact, they will threaten to take more since there is a No Aggression part in Japan's constitution. China, they will take Okinawa as soon as the U.S.A. military leaves there. And Japan cannot do anything about it. With the ''America First'' thing going on, there will not be any promises to help Japan reclaim Okinawa from China once its successfully taken.

Posted in: Do you see any alternative to Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) dumping radioactive water from its destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean as it runs out of room to store it? See in context

I don't see why they couldn't make additional attempts to filter the water of additional radioactive material before releasing it into the ocean.

Posted in: Gov't to use family name first in Roman alphabet in documents See in context

When Programs of Anime and others shows air, the characters' names would be pronounced as Family name then Personal name. Only when it is translated into English is it reversed whether it is in Subtitles or Spoken English. Since many of international followers of Japanese Culture are aware of the Perchance to do Family name first, it would make sense to do this as a revision that sets Japan Culture as different than other Countries. I agree with the change.

Posted in: Japan's hunt for minke whales resume in coastal areas off Hokkaido See in context

If Japan is 'Truly' doing scientific research on whales, then shouldn't they be continuing the trend to hunt whales outside of territorial waters for research purposes when they resumed commercial whaling? Otherwise, they would then ''really'' be in violation since the hunts were for commercial purposes anyway.

Posted in: In the city where you live, if you had a choice between taxis and ride-sharing services like Lyft or Uber, which would you choose? See in context

My big worry is not the driver, but the vehicle. If it is not maintained right, it can be a harrowing ride where i could get injured. Too many taxi companies buy used police cruisers that are cheap, but worn out. An accident is very possible based on a few friends of mine that are taxi drivers from NYC.

Posted in: Kono to ask foreign media to switch order of Japanese names See in context

I totally Agree, Especially since much Japanese Anime circulates the Globe and we hear the pronunciation in Japanese with English Subtitles. Even the English Subtitles gets it Wrong! Its like mispronouncing someone's name inaccurately on purpose, it is like a ''slap'' in the face. Lets be more correct with Japanese people, unless the request we were to use the name differently or as a nickname, but only when they ask us to.

Posted in: Man arrested after eating without money, going on rampage at Tokyo pub See in context

Unfortunately, this is the likelihood of the ''hidden'' unemployment of Japan. They cannot get jobs if they fall in the age bracket of the 'forgotten generation (unlucky people). No one wants to hire them or they are considered too old. So, the only way they can survive is to get arrested and be a ward of the state.

Posted in: High court finds cell phone TV owners obliged to pay NHK fees See in context

NHK has been losing paying subscribers because there has been a loophole for cell phones. There are too many that are using that loophole to avoid paying for content. This will right the scales. Unfortunately, there are those with ''dumb'' phones that will be forced to pay as well because of the simplicity of the law that NHK adheres to. In this regard, all people using any cell phone, regardless of functionality will have to pay the fee as well. Since that mean that each person owning a cell phone in Japan has to pay, NHK's total take will go up by ten times the current subscription method.

Posted in: Do you believe there will be a military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea? See in context

With a leader like Kim Jong-Un, there will either be a conflict or North Korea will set off a very powerful Electro Magnetic Pulse (an atomic explosion in the upper atmosphere) that will knock out power grids and electronic devices/vehicles around the world.

Posted in: Do you believe North Korea will launch missiles toward Guam? See in context

North Korea has limited resources, They will shoot one Nuclear Tipped ICBM at Guam that will range for a Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) which will take out all electronics and power grids. It is a wide dispersal explosion which, if situated correctly will take out the bases in both Yokohama and Guam. The second ICBM will be targeted to go off over Canada to take out Continental U.S.A. (2/3 or 4/5), only states that get away from it are the southern parts of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida. The Third ICBM will be targeted north of Scandinavia and will take out Europe. The fourth ICBM will go off over North Korea (North Korean forces have vehicles that have been hardened against EPMs since the Soviet Era) it will take out South Korea, Japan, and Northern to mid China.
