I really believed she is progressive but she is stubborn and illogical like her peers. Tokyo olympics 2020 seems to be an ego contest between the politicians and not about the games.

Any neighbor Japan isn’t in dispute with on tiny pieces of land in the middle of nowhere?

They cannot all be wrong about the same thing at the same time.

Posted in: Japan comedy duo apologize after reportedly saying Naomi Osaka 'needs bleach' See in context

So they can name her while making fun of her but won’t mention her name when apologizing?

They shouldn’t have bothered to issue an appology.

The only airport I decided to never visit again was old Beijing airport. I try not to travel with layover in Beijing because of the flight delays. I hope the new one will be better.

Abe denounces Saudi oil attacks, refrains from singling out Iran in speech at U.N.

This is actually very mature and should be praised. A country shouldn’t be blamed without concrete proofs. I don’t think the world in its current situation can handle “we are sorry for wrong intelligence about WMDs” moment.

Posted in: Trump, Modi vow relentless fight on extremists in mass rally See in context

The entire rhetoric of Modi’s party is based on extremism and fascism.

The attacks on non Hindu population of India has increased exponentially since he came into power.

Sometimes I envy the lying skills of these crooked politicians.

Posted in: Post-typhoon blackout raises disaster readiness questions in Japan See in context

In my 11 years in Japan, every disaster questions Japan’s disaster readiness. But we have been seeing infinite pledges by the dear leader wearing blue overall after every disaster without anything improving in reality.

Posted in: Abe says ASDF may evolve into 'Air and Space SDF' See in context

I have read Abe says so many times. It feels like his first name is says. (Reversing names according to the direction by current defense minister).

This is going to be interesting as everyone already mentioned no one owns the space so is Japan going to claim some tiny meteoroid like the Islands?

Posted in: Truck may have taken wrong road before crashing with train in Yokohama See in context

It seems people who are blaming the departed driver have no experience driving in Japan. As some of the posters have already mentioned the roads in Japan suddenly get very narrow without any proper warning and the latest smart navigations make it more difficult.

Also, the road design in terms of turns and crossings isn’t very good and it’s very common to make a mistake on a new route.

100% agree with @Chip Star.

In my opinion admitting that the labor problem exists is already a big step forward for Japanese companies.

Posted in: As Japan frets about dearth of AI talent, Daikin develops its own program See in context

At a disadvantage to bigger tech firms in attracting top talent, it has created an in-house program that takes new graduates and current employees - almost all with no AI background - and trains them up.

This is one of the reasons Japan is so backward in tech they “inject” fresh grads and make them go through the mandatory “programming” training without even considering if the selected person want to do it or have the programming or engineering mindset, eventually these grads end up being manager where they suck absolutelty at their jobs because unlike a fully trained Engineer they can only solve problems on the surface without understanding how things works. Imagine a graduate with history degree running a team working on machine learning.

Posted in: Japan's exports drop for 7th straight month as China-U.S. trade war takes toll See in context

The easiest way out for Japan would be to stop teaching their customers the Japanese way and start addressing the market needs. I have done business with Koreans and Chinese and even though they are more difficult to deal with in terms of contract negotiations but they are flexible and are willing to change according to market situation.

Posted in: U.S. to sanction 5 nations, including Japan, if they import Iranian oil See in context

Not all countries that have nuclear power develop them, and the problem with Iran is that they want the weapons too

The only country to have ever used nuclear weapons still holds the largest stock pile of them.

Seems US isn't afraid to show her hypocrisy anymore, as most of the people here already commented if these sanctions were really for the world's peace why Saudis and Israel isn't in the list.

This is what happens when you have a uni polar world, there is no one to stop the world's bully.

RIP all the innocent souls who lost their lives. It’s hard to imagine what the families are going through who have lost their loved ones.

If we count the family members of those who passed away thousands of people are directly effected by this act of terrorism.

Posted in: Japan slams WTO ruling on South Korean Fukushima food ban See in context

I don’t understand why Japan is making fuss about it. As some posters mentioned already, no sane country should trust Japanese labeling, certification or inspection data. The newspapers always have headlines about some unethical practices by Japan Inc.

But LDP will try to make this issue look political as usual.

The punctuality of Japanese trains often makes headlines around the world

Because no one talks about their daily delays. I am writing this comment from a train that has been delayed every day of the week with yesterday and day before yesterday’s delays of over 40 minutes

Posted in: Court convicts man of drug possession but rules GPS probe without warrant illegal See in context


You can actually refuse politely by asking them to show you the warrant. Once you ask them for warrants they become super polite and say "お願いです” but you can refuse and suggest to show your resident card instead at most.

There are some super creepy and consistent cops as well who try their best to search, you can ask them (politely again) to search a Japanese passer by and you will let them search your bag.

Posted in: Abe suggests he won't seek 4th term as LDP president See in context

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe suggested Thursday he has no intention of serving another four-year term as president of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party when his third term expires in September 2021.

Looking at Abe’s track record of pledges, urges and commitments. He definitely is seeking another four years term as president of LDP.

Probably after changing the rules, he will try to seek people’s understanding on this matter as usual.
