Ridiculous tit-for-tat action by SK. So childish and predictable . SK started the whole dispute, and their stubborn behaviour will speed up the downfall of the economy. Moon has to go!

Promising news, and necessary. Together with the USAs Space Force started by Trump, Japan Space Force will ensure PRC do not try and "claim" planets, moons etc.

Posted in: S Korean beer imports from Japan plunge 97% See in context

Korean beer and Japanese beer have a very similar taste

Actually, wrong. Japanese beer is delicious, and I cant stop drinking. Korean beer, for instance Hite, is undrinkable, I cant even finish 1 can! Even my dog will refuse to drink it!

Wow, I guess Japan enjoys making a deal with the devil.

Theres nothing wrong with Japan helping provide Iranians with desperately needed medicine. It shows that Japan cares. Japan has never been anti-Islam against Iran, unlike The West.

Amazing skill and acrobatics! I doubt we could see any young people in the world more talented than Japanese kids on skateboards. It is almost a national sport now like Judo! Guaranteed Golds!

Posted in: S Korean beer imports from Japan plunge 97% See in context

Does this fool in the photo actually think boycotting Japanese beer will hurt Japan? The rest of the world will easily make up the short fall in sales. There is a huge boom in Japanese beer around the world, because its mouth-watering. Cannot say the same for Korean beer!

Posted in: Elderly people account for record 28.4% of Japanese population See in context

I dont share the "doom and gloom" of some posters to this story. The aging population of Japan, as well as the declining population, is proof that Japan can manage to run their society smoothly, safely and orderly, even if 28% of citizens are old.

They may be old, but elderly Japanese people can do anything!

Its an official flag of Japan. Japanese have the right to wave it at Olympics. I hope IOC does not bow down to the SK pressure and bullying. Anyway, I thought SK was almost certain to boycott Olympics, so why do they care about the flags in the stadium?

Good for them. I hope the law is changed. Its unforgivable what this evil "father" did. He deserved to be in prison for a minimum 40 years. I guess he cant be charged with rape again if the law is changed?

South Koreas tit-for-tat trade "retaliation" on Japan, by putting huge import tax on Japanese goods, has failed badly!!

Excellent decision, thanks WTO, THANK-YOU!

Ccongratulations to PM Abe in November! An amazing achievement, showing persistence, strength and leadership. Other democraciies who always keep changing PM should learn from Japan.

As for Koizumi-san. Yes, he is very popular in Japan. But, he needs to serve an "apprenticeship" under PM Abe for 3 more years, when PM Abe has been in the job for 10 years. Only then is he ready to take the Prime Ministership.

I agree with the freedom-loving HK citizens. The US should help bring democracy to HK. Either through Military intervention, or a total ban on all trade with Communist PRC.

Good luck Hong Kong Citizens. Fight back at the evil police and HK government. There will be democracy in HK one day. You should never have to live under Communist dictatorship.

Posted in: Seoul, Busan pass bill to boycott 'war crimes' Japanese firms See in context

Another day, more pure hatred of all Japanese by South Koreans. Every nation that has ever fought in a war has been involved in what other sides call "war crimes". Yes, even South Korea. Linking Japanese companies to it 80 years later is unforgivable.

I know all the world is on Japans side.

Good progress between Putin and PM Abe. Give the islands back and there will be an unprecedented economic boom in Russia. Japan is hungry for more and more gas, BUT needs that Peace Treaty signed and the Japanese islands returned.

Posted in: South Korea calls for ban of 'rising sun' flag at 2020 Olympics See in context

Japans Olympics, Japans flag, Japans right.

What happened to SK boycott threats of the Olympics? If they boycott as most believe now, why are they worried about the flags Japan will fly at the the Olympics?

Posted in: Abe urges Putin to fulfill 'historical duty' to sign peace treaty See in context

Japan renounced its rights to these islands when it signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty, but continues to whine. This is exactly what Hapan accuses South Korea of doing. Hilarious.

Japan signed that "Peace Treaty" as an Occupied (non independent foreign policy) Nation. Thus, null and void.

Japan and PM Abe want Japans Northern Territories returned. PM Abe will continue to fight and negotiate until this is realized. Putin can see the huge opportunity for big money for gas export to Japan.

Posted in: Nissan CEO Saikawa admits being paid too much by equity scheme See in context

Should be severely reprimanded by the Boad.

But no. It does not even remotely compare to what Ghosn is accused of.

Well argued, Nigel Boy, well argued. This is about an oversight of Saikawa-san accidentally not acquiring salary in shares until a week later, when they had gone up. Small amount compared to salary. NOTHING like deliberately avoiding to disclose tens of millions of $US in salary payments. And, Saikawa-san has already promised to return this amount.

Posted in: Japan again proposes raising bluefin tuna fishing quota See in context

Conservation is about conserving resources, not outright protecting them so that no one can benefit from the resource at all.

mine may be an unpopular opinion but it’s a correct one.

Superbly argued, fxgai. Dont worry about the anti-Japan crowd. Your opinion is right. I am shocked and puzzled that some people want to enforce a total ban on bluefin Tuna fishing.

Posted in: Letter threatening to hunt Koreans sent to S Korean embassy in Japan See in context

Can the SK embassy release the letter? If not, why? Could they prove it was written by a Japanese? It is to be hoped the anti-Japan crowd on here can keep a cool head.

Good for Japan for ordering the National Police Agency to investigate this matter seriously.

So much for all them people who think "Japanese dislike Koreans". Quite the opposite. These Korean Residents are treated very well and respected, hence the thriving Shin-Okubo district. It is a credit to Japan and the tolerance of Japanese.

Japans culture, Japans tradition, Japans right to hunt whatever they choose, that is perfectly legal.

Japan would win convincingly with the strength of her Navy, 


No one will "lol" at the worlds 4th largest Navy. Even bigger than British Navy. Thats why SK wouldn't choose war.

Posted in: Lawmaker who made Russia war remarks suggests same with S Korea See in context

I would much rather the big issue of Takeshima is settled soon by the ICJ, if SK are confident they really own the Island. Maruyama is being stupid by stating a full-scale war soon between SK and Japan is the best option to recover this Japanese Territory. Japan would win convincingly with the strength of her Navy, but there would be casualties on both side.
