Posted in: China declines to join IAEA system to monitor Fukushima treated water See in context

China has rejected Japan's proposal that it join an international verification framework for assessing the results of radiation level monitoring in treated water being released into the sea from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, sources familiar with the bilateral relationship said Tuesday

which source?

If Japan really wanted China to join in monitoring the radiation, Japanese spokesperson or Kishida could have announce it via press release? so far, nobody mention about Japan asking China to join.

this misleading news reporting quoting from unnamed sources needed to stop.

Posted in: Japan seeks to organize Sri Lanka creditors' meeting on debt crisis See in context

Tokyo is open to hosting talks among all the creditor nations aimed at lifting Colombo from its worst debt crisis since independence, but it is not clear whether top creditor China would join and a lack of clarity remains about Sri Lanka's finances, one source told Reuters.

based on Asian Development Bank’s wiki,

Traditionally, and because Japan is one of the largest shareholders of the bank (Asian Development Bank), the president has always been Japanese.

a simple google search shows that the largest creditor is Asian Development Bank, followed by Japan, then China. And Reuters quote an anonymous source saying China is the top creditor?

First rate storytelling indeed

Posted in: China's imports of Japanese cosmetics keep rising See in context

This reminds me of a time I was in Akihabara buying a region-free DVD player when a bus of Chinese tourists pulled up. They came in and started buying everything and I mean EVERYTHING. The very first and only thing they did in making a purchasing decision was to look and see where it was made. If it said "Made in Japan" they bought it. "Made in China" stayed on the shelf.

Well, they're tourists, what did you expect they buy in Japan? Why waste precious luggage space for things you can buy back home?

China is consistently the country with highest travel and tourism expenditure in the recent years, if they are willing to spend their money in Japan, isn't this good enough for Japan's local economy?

Trades benefits both parties, supply and demand.

China opening up their large market, in fact is benefiting other smaller countries. China's market is on a different scale than the other members.

Saying this benefits China only is same as saying Trump's tariffs is MAGA.
