LDP has won the confidence of most people throughout years. Young generations want some change. Yet, Japan will vote most probably in favour of stability in such difficult international circumstances.

Agreed, the TV presentation of Mr. Brook’s Mahabharata was essential viewing in our house. We still have and listen to the soundtrack CD. A brilliant man, a shining career

Thank you, BigYen

He'll remain a legendary name forever. His Mahabharata interpretation right after Vietnam war is still remembered with admiration. Let his soul stay in Light.

The company's disclosure comes when the government is trying to reverse the long-term trend of population decline in Japan

Business life in big cities like Tokyo is very stressful. Most people naturally prefer to postpone parenting that is often perceived as a full-time job requiring great responsibility. Why having children if one is not sure that he'll become a decent parent?

I never really trusted air-conditioning as used today in most offices and hotel rooms. I even think that's very unhealthy because of the enormous difference of temperature/humidity levels with outside environment. We can easily make without such artificial and unnatural ways of coping with summer conditions.

Moon landing is based on Newtonian physics. Namely, the principles are very simple. Yet, that's expensive. So, international cooperation is good idea

Sadly enough, mp3 technology made considerable harm to music industry (Copyright issues, etc). It's not a pleasant experience when people started sharing and downloading ART without any respect for the musician who maybe has spent long years to compose something highly refined?

Indeed, 27,000 'units' away would be far more accurate. Because our perception and measurement of temporal distance is still very earthbound and limited, I guess?

@Ercan Arisoy - the answer to the question at the end of your comment is simple. Why did the Russian leader literally destroy 'the Russian dream'? He's nuts. Totally fruity.

Thank you for your comment,


I think that there's a sudden shift (as if something very unexpected happened) in his decision-making, right after he met Macron in Moscow. And wonder why?

He probably made this remark before the invasion of Ukraine? Most people thought that Russian leader was a good chess player. Russian federation was making progress with meaningful moves. Their network of oligarchs was working like a Swiss watch. Sputnik news was on the air all around the globe from Japan to UK. In spite of what they did in places like Syria, the West was more or less accustomed to this regional power dreaming big with their Soviet legacy. To make a long story short, they were doing fairly well politically and economically. By no means, they needed to react the Nato and EU attempts of Ukraine, ferociously. A good chess player would wait and act more strategically. Russian leader literally destroyed 'the Russian dream'. Why?

So sad to say, this conflict smells 'enemy brotherhood' - a puzzling and deeply rooted cultural polarity. Ukraine's about to become a real black hole that will swallow Russian raison d'être in the end (from Culinary art to Music and Poetry, so sadly, anything good and valuable about Russia). Nothing will remain of them except soldiers asking themselves why they are here and whose war they're fighting.
