Posted in: Japan's industry minister negative toward banning Russian oil imports See in context

3.6pc, 8.8pc, these are tiny numbers. How about an economy drive and more renewable energy should be able to do without this altogether. Russia banning Japanese officials in other news, can Japan not do more?

Hard to imagine that with modern technology the Channel cannot be adequately policed to stop this happening. How desperate must these people be to risk this. RIP to those who lost their lives.

Posted in: Japan, Vietnam express serious concern about South China Sea See in context

Good that the leaders have the common sense and restraint not to name China specifically whilst the press continue to whip up a frenzy with their constant mention of 'rising tensions' with China

Posted in: Former Princess Mako says marriage was a 'necessary choice' See in context

As a westerner this whole thing is totally unfathomable. Every single articles trots out the same line about the family financial dispute, which could be settled in the blink of an eye. For the press to deny this young lady the happiness of a normal wedding to the perrson she wishes to marry is disgusting.

I hope they will be able to get past this and have a happy life together. Wishing them every success and happiness.

Indeed, please tell us plebs who don't read Japanese what the real story is.

Let them be and let them try to find their own happiness.

Yes hard to imagine this is all really about the boyfriend's mother's finances.

Will she become royal again if they do allow women from the family to retain their royal status on marrying commoners. Is this really what this is all about?

Posted in: Trudeau projected to be re-elected but without majority See in context

$600m for what? To be in exactly the same position as before. Trudeau's ego knows no bounds and he loves to waste hard earned taxpayers money. Potentially four more years of narcissism. Not to mention the super spreader event organized by the very people who are supposed to be protecting the public.

I don't usually call out other lists but Cat Stevens your comments show a total ignorance of the geography of Canada and a complete and utter disregard for anyone who is immunocompromised or high risk from the Covid for other reasons.

Should have been used for this purpose in the first place and temporary facilities to deal with Covid should have had precedence over the outrageous games.

Posted in: Vaccine minister Kono to run in LDP leadership race See in context

I thought that he would be a good candidate before the vaccine fiasco. Can't get past the thought that maybe he was set up for a fall. Publicly blaming young people for the issues with the vaccine when there were clearly so many other issues was not a smart move. Hope whoever wins will focus on keeping the population safe, providing adequate medical resources and speedy vaccines

More Olympic absurdity. Why not give them to homeless people instead of throwing them out. The mind boggles at the insanity of the Olympics

Posted in: Japan's governors call for COVID lockdown See in context

How can Japan possibly be in this position after having so long to prepare. Too focused on the ridiculous Olympics, not wanting to accept vaccine results of other populations, Go To Travel (craziest iidea ever), ridiculously slow vaccine roll out.......

Posted in: Olympics now ended, Suga pinning his hopes on vaccinations See in context

the total has doubled in the past four months to exceed 1 million. Tokyo's daily caseloads tripled during the Games that ended Sunday. And as hospitals fill up, nearly 20,000 infected people are isolating at home, over 10 times more than a month ago.

Emphasis in the wrong place for months. Vaccines should have had top priority all along not the expensive ego driven Olympics. Hard to understand any logic here

Posted in: Key to success of Beijing Olympics lies in China-Japan relations See in context

The key to the success of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics lies in how China-Japan ties will develop after the Tokyo Summer Games

Says who?

Doesn't China just do its own thing?

I wish them well but......

Looks like a super spreader event right there.

Of course they are maintaining the bubble with no risk to aand no contact with locals (the airport presumably runs unstaffed)......

Posted in: Measures that made Tokyo Olympics possible also left public disconnected See in context

Suga's optimistic view that the Olympics would be well received once they started has somewhat been supported by the lift in sentiment due to Japanese athletes' medal rush

Really. I don't think many hold that view

Posted in: Counting the coronavirus cost at Tokyo Olympics See in context

Regardless of any statistics, the Olympics diverted resources away from the people of Japan, took attention away from what should have been the country's focus (the vaccination programme) and cost Japan an inordinate amount of money which could have been better spent elsewhere. I do not believe they should have been held.

They have clearly demonstrated that the games are not just about the sport and irreparably damaged the reputation of the IOC.

Posted in: Bach says Tokyo Olympics have 'far exceeded' his expectations See in context

Superspreader event or not the plain fact of the matter is that the Olympics diverted attention and resources away from where they should have been and have undoubtedly caused damage to the Japanese people
