The sad part is no country, at least not a civilized one has ever treated a Japanese citizen in that way, even when caught doing an illegal offense, usually they get deported back to Japan alive.

To be honest, it is ridiculous to apologize for something you didn't do ( sins of the father).

That Japan is not the same Japan, everyone involved on wars, did questionable deeds, are we still blaming Germany, for the Nazis doing during WWII?.

That sounds rather offensive, rather than the defensive role the SDF is constitutionally bound by. What worries me more than the SDF obtaining high-tech offensive weaponry is violating the constitution. Japan did that in the '30s and '40s and look what happened.

So, what is Japan supposed to do?

The law needs to be respected, if you want to change the law, the follow the procedure, I don't thing that trying to impose the laws and views of you former country is correct, then why did you move to Japan ?

Sure I don't agree with plenty of laws in here, but I knew what they where before I decided to stay here with my family, I could easily move back to either the U.S or my original country Dominican Republic. But I decided to stay here, the U.S is to divided, and D.R I underdeveloped, so I make my peace that I might no agree with every law, but is better than the alternative.

Posted in: Tokyo ward rejects couple's marriage registry under separate surnames See in context

Critics say the provision originating from the 1898 Civil Code reflects the traditional concept of marriage as an arrangement involving families rather than individuals. Usually, a woman leaves her family to become part of her husband's family.

The Supreme Court ruled the provision as constitutional in 2021.

Proof that Japan is backwards- and more than a century worth.

Is it 2022 or 1922 in Japan?

Apparently, they haven't gotten to 1922 yet. They're still locked in 1898

Pretty much this. Can you imagine if they allowed Japanese people to have foreign family names

My wife uses my surname Rusto

My wife also adopted my last name.

Marterosario, now I think people should have the option of using whatever name they wish, at the sametime

We should not be involved in any way in this war in Ukraine, there is plenty of other issues in the U.S that could be fixed with the amount of money we are wasting in this whole business.

Posted in: Family of dead Sri Lankan detainee demands apology from Japanese gov't See in context

I don't agree with what happened, but someone else mentioned and I agree they are not going to win against the Japanese government on their lawsuits, it's regrettable.
