Posted in: Abe cancels overseas trip to deal with flood aftermath See in context

Since it’s Abe, I bet he would use it for PR. As long as he is not taking a shovel in his hand and helping out, I don’t trust anything he will start spouting soon enough about “I will do everything in my power” and whatever. The usual stuff.

Posted in: Japan to bring in more foreign workers See in context

Foreign probably meaning people from poorer countries who see the slavery in japan as an upgrade I guess.

Japan will never get highly skilled workers with such terrible working conditions.

Posted in: Old dog, new tricks: Sony unveils 'intelligent' robot pet Aibo See in context

A lot of people here who can't see the full picture.

a) I for one am not allowed to have pets in my apartment, and I would be interested in having something like AIBO instead and even act as a moving security camera. Actually, most modern apartments don't allow pets.

b) This robot is just a means to achieve a bigger goal, AI and machine learning. It is a means to get more money in for R&D for driverless cars and various solutions around customer service.

Posted in: 'Vanishing village' looks to LDP for survival See in context

I for one would like to know how the percentage per age group who voted for Abe. I have the feeling the vast amount of old people in Japan (who vote for LDP because they may be somewhat blind and just have the "habit" of voting for LDP) have never thought of how much their vote could also negatively impact the future of Japan (e.g. children). In my circles (obviously outside of japan), the old are sometimes simply asking the young what they should vote for. Because they are old and don't really care anymore, since they won't be around for long. Plus they may also have simply given up on voting for their own future.

nothing will change no matter who wins

It is already a change when Koike wins. She may be simply a lesser evil at the end, but what is far more interesting is the change in People's minds. What would excite me most about Koike winning is the fact that people are sick and WANT a change. They are ready for a change. This is far more important to me than who is winning. Because it shows that Japan can change, if there is an opportunity to change.

Posted in: Koike's foreign, security policies gain attention before election See in context

OK. I didn't know THAT. That's killed it for me. Well, then she is no different than Abe. 2 cheeks of the same backside.

Yeah, see what damage this article does? JapanToday should research better.

Posted in: New party challenges Abe with populist slogans; but few policy differences See in context

Even if there are few policy differences. You choose between a person who can't get anything done and a person who appears to be able to get a lot done.

Posted in: Japan's population projected to shrink 30% by 2065 See in context

With overpopulation around the world it is necessary that a trend like this has to happen at some point. The problem is how we will overcome the difficult times ahead. The current system is not built to handle such a trend, a new system has to be thought of and how to best minimize the damage that will occur. In the long run and from the environmental perspective a decline will definitely be a benefit.

Posted in: Review: 'Final Fantasy XV' a rough road trip worth taking See in context

Japantoday shouldn't write any game reviews. Telling us it has the 'worst cast ever', while most real game review websites say the exact opposite and everybody is loving the cast. The worst cast ever goes to FFXIII.

Stop being a game review site, if you don't have the skills for it. Also, spoiling certain parts. Reviews should be spoiler-free.

the experience of the athletes had to be a priority for any planning.

Well, then send all the athletes into the nearby villages to get the true japan experience. Saving lots of money. They can be fed by some nice little oba-chans and see how awesome this country is without all the luxury.
