It's not part of Japanese culture if it is less than 80 years old. Sure there were smaller villages eatting it before that but not on a national scale.

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

SK has never agreed except under duress in the 1965 treaty.

2015 signed by both countries, wording literally said "resolved finally and irreversibly". Yet Korea effectively ripping this agreement up keeping the issue alive.

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

Is this 2015 all over again? Korea just can't let this go no matter what signed agreements say. Japan even paid a large amount of money in 2015 but Korea turned around and wanted to return the money and not give it to victims. To this day it sits there unspent.

Posted in: Yen set for turnaround in 2023 after slide to 32-year low against dollar See in context

Japanese authorities stepped into the currency market in September when the yen faced heavy selling pressure. The authorities' determination to stem the currency's plunge in Japan's first yen-buying intervention in about 24 years helped alter the course of the currency pair.

You are off by 12 years, Japan intervened in 2011 after the earthquake with approval from other nations and illegally all the time in secret.

Why do they define fatherhood by marriage? I guess it's too much paperwork if the father isn't on the family register.

malicious is pretty loose, who defines what is malicious and what is not? What if a group was thought to be not malicious then later found to be malicious? It's all very grey area.
