Japanese paparazzis are piece of.....to ambush him like that and few years ago Miyazaki could have kick them but now as retired, he is more relax. About about DS, he is totally right.....Miyazaki is focused on his last film and his personal life, let him in peace!

As Aly Rustom said no, because LDP horrible policies wont be acceptable anymore.

However, it's a good news for the rest of the world.

Posted in: Osaka metropolis plan rejected in referendum for 2nd time See in context

Marcelito actually the heisei era can still be used in companies, less in administration.

New PM did not change anything in all companies and administrations of Japan.

Japan needs huge and urgent reforms such as family and school support, decreasing debts of the country etc. than to fight how to spell Osaka prefecture.

Changing one kanji would cost billions in the administration, shipping companies and so on....is there anything else more important than that right now such a education, supporting families, old people, health ???

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic swimming venue opens; now comes the hard part: COVID-19 See in context

I worked for a company providing ** to the Tokyo O.G commitee and was in contact with many site managers. I can tell you a large majority was NOT ready at all!!!

Moreover, Japanese commitee is the only organization with 2 to 5 subcontractors for one service.

For example, TOCOG will pay company A, A paying to company B, B to company C, C to D etc...Obviously, companies A are almost all closed from government and politicians. They got easily huge contract but don't know the job so they use a subcontractor and so on.

In previous OG in london and rio, commitee got a contract directly to a REAL company doing the job (in above example, it would be company C or D) to avoid to pay 2 or 3 other companies charging again and again......that s why those OG will be the most expensive ever!

Posted in: 6 doctors referred to prosecutors over death of 2-year-old boy in 2014 See in context

So sorry for so many parents who lost their kids due to some doctors feeling they are completely powerful.

12 kids died naturally ? Sounds weird!

As many foreigners already underlined, many doctors in Japan act like gods and patient should never ask and get doubt on what they are doing...

Posted in: Peru opens Machu Picchu for a single Japanese tourist after almost 7-month wait See in context

I am glad for this person, for sure he enjoyed from early morning to late afternoon Machu Picchu, one of the most beautiful and magic place of the world!

I also hope Peruvian authorities used those 7 months to clean up the Machu Picchu from the stupid tourists writing their name on rock and so on....

Posted in: 89-year-old ex-top bureaucrat pleads not guilty over fatal Tokyo car crash See in context

Why prosecutors are not asking to Iizuka's wife what happened ? If she's not in a trial, it will be the best proof on non justice in Japan. He's lying in everything and especially his condition.

I feel really sad for Matsunaga which life was totally destroyed!

Posted in: Prepare to get rid of 'hanko,' Suga tells government See in context

I am surprised by such dinosaur to move Japan to the 21th century. Maybe he realized that corona will be part of our life and how hanko stopped administration and companies to work correctly.

I have my hanko since 2 decades but almost never used it. Mitsui sumitomo at that time accepted my sign + special PIN code so I don t need to bring my hanko for a transaction....your hand is with you all the time, hanko not!

Posted in: Japanese foreign minister to visit Germany, France this week See in context

Do Germany and France will talk to him on how Japan banned foreign citizens and do not apply La Haye treaty for child abduction ? Block free agreement between UE and Japan and things will (maybe?) change.

Hey JAL you forget to mention that pet on board will also be happy to do not get discrimination as they are the biggest minority right?! And spirit of dead vegetable, fruit, meat, fish etc...also.

Next step, all staff including pilot in diving suit or halloween costume for complete equality of gender on board.

Posted in: Women's rights seen taking a backseat under Japan's new gov't See in context

Abe has never wanted to improve women's position in the society and especially in companies, it was just a huge lie in order to get argument through pressure for foreign countries. As Suga still live in middle age, he will definitely not do anything neither....

Even a new disease contaminating only men would not be enough to change mind of those old politicians and very slightly of society.

I bet 10000000 usd they will not get extradition. It's just a joke from prosecutor arguing "Look I m trying" before to say "shoganai, ganbatta" lol

Posted in: Abe says decision to resign before accomplishing his goals 'gut-wrenching' See in context

"bolstering Japan’s defense role and capability and its security alliance with the U.S. He also stepped up patriotic education at schools and raised Japan’s international profile."

Billions spent in US bases and problems still there (Futenma etc.), hiding real facts of history from school manuals, deleting excuses from previous primer minister and getting bad relationships with closed countries excepting USA (golf is not so hard isn't it?), pushing olympic game for tokyo meanwhile hundred of thousand people have starving in Tohoku, women still have low position in the society, child poverty strongly raised (https://www.tuj.ac.jp/icas/event/invisible-child-poverty-in-japan/), hoikuen missing so much, more slave through the "internship" visa, raising VAT without improving pensions and social issues....and of course, trillions of debts!

In fact, Dentsu and other big companies are the only ones to be happy as well as extreme right people expressing their anger for Chinese etc...without getting any trouble by authorities.

Only good thing, boosting tourism. What a success in 8 years....

Posted in: Japan to ease COVID-19 entry curbs on foreigners with resident visas: NHK See in context

Talked 4 hours with Japanese friend who told me how she feels shame about what the country did to citizens including foreigners.

The news is good for those who are stucked outside but damages are already done. I had two relatives who died and I could not be there inspite of being PR...

This is just the biggest proof to the world that governments/administrations full of dinosaurs leave in another world and time.

Finally someone clever! This money for O.G since the beginning should have been used for tohoku and social issues. As corona virus can infect everyone, maybe people will finally think deeply how money should be used by government....
