COVID-19 INFORMATION What you need to know about the coronavirus if you are living in Japan or planning a visit.

Hallowed comments

Posted in: Professor denies he was pressured to remove videos on virus-hit ship See in context

He didn't provide a reason for why he removed his videos? Judging by the comments people have settled on, without a shred of evidence, sinister government conspiracy ordered by the PM himself. Got it

Posted in: Japanese economy sinks amid fears about virus impact See in context

I can't believe they're wheeling out the coronavirus excuse this early. The October-to-December period wasn't affected by this virus at all.

Not once in the article or in real life has anyone said the coronavirus is the reason for the economic contraction last quarter. Are you that desperate for anti-Japan talk points?

Posted in: 66% relieved S Korea maintaining intel-sharing pact with Japan: poll See in context

More like 66% now know what the true colours are of the Korean. Being a Korean in Japan just got a lot, lot worse; I for one am done with them forever

Posted in: In reversal, S Korea says it will keep Japan military intelligence pact See in context

South Koreans and their comically incompetent supporters are no where near the brightest bunch out of the third world countries, but this.. this is truly embarrassing for South Korea. I will never have anything but pure contempt for them going forward. They have proven themselves yet again as a coward nation. How utterly embarrassing

Posted in: Japan-S Korea row over history, trade deepens as man dies of immolation in Seoul See in context

Unfortunately mental health illness is hidden under the carpet in SK, and tragedies like this occur hourly in that country, as in this case with this deeply mentally disturbed individual. SK still has a long, long, long way to go before joining the big boys as proven by the fact that these mental problems appear to have compromised even their government.

Sad, but this is entirely the fault of the SK government for failing to tackle mental health illness.

Posted in: Whale meat fetches 'celebration prices' after Japanese hunt See in context

Good to hear! Hopefully the high prices for whale meat causes more businesses to enter the industry to provide more competition and higher quality meats and other whale-based products. I'll definitely be tasting the catch!

Posted in: S Korea says Japan's high-tech export curbs threat to global economy See in context

Have a cry SK. Until the whole nation apologises sincerely and pays exorbitant compensation for breaking an international agreement against international law, these sanctions will stay and be tightened every year.

Posted in: Abe becomes 3rd equal longest-serving PM with 2,720 days in office See in context

And easily one of the most successful out of Japan's woeful record of PMs. If he's causing the unskilled and low quality of society to weep each night, that's more a problem with them than him. The economy has been in rude form for the rest of us

Posted in: Ghosn's wife appeals to Trump for help in U.S. media interview See in context

Hahaha, oh dear.. The Ghosn collapse continues.

I'm sure the irony of getting someone heavily suspected of financial crimes to come to the rescue of another even more heavily suspected of financial crimes is lost on the Ghosn crime family. What an embarrassing joke this man has turned out to be, what a waste.. Add another 10 years for hypocrisy in poor taste!

Posted in: Renault to bring case against Ghosn over expenses See in context

B,b,but he saved Nissan and is cute and is innocent! Yeah right, Ghosn is done. His crimes will thankfully be repaid in full. Not even his French allies are making silly excuses for him these days

Posted in: While the Japanese government relentlessly promotes the image of 'Cool Japan' and mega-tourism, the current reality is a country run by sociopathic Hitler-loving plutocrats, with plummeting press freedom, endemic poverty, rising censorship, deliberate destruction of public records, continual death by overwork, a corrupt bureaucracy, and a medieval justice system. Despite the triple meltdown of Fukushima, the government is rushing to start nuclear power plants again with reckless abandon. See in context

Yeah right, this guy has been permanently discredited for poor journalism, sensationalism, and even pure fake facts, as shown by that link in the comments showing he is unprofessional. He has as much credibility as an English teacher in Japan, and is spurned even by American journalists. This can be dismissed out of hand as rubbish.

How dare Japan not become more like Trump's America or Brexit Britain! They are the epitome of progressive development and "morality" right?

Posted in: Ghosn, suffering from kidney failure, was arrested illegally: defense document See in context

He has kidney failure suddenly! He was arrested illegally! This is all part of a grand conspiracy! His wife didn't know about the money laundering! The Earth is flat and chemtrails are real!

If this is all the defense has got, Ghosn is definitely ghosin to jail

Posted in: Ghosn's wife back in Japan for questioning See in context

Wow very surprised she returned and kudos to her. However if she is guilty of money laundering as suspected then she deserves whatever is coming to her

Posted in: Ghosn not getting much help from France, analysts say See in context

Few tears have shed for him in France. Contrast that with all the tears cried for him by his supporters here on JT.

Haha you can say that again. The French seem to be far more emotionally strong.

Glad Mrs Ghosn's cowardly gambit failed too, as expected. She won't ever be coming back to Japan thankfully. Good news all round!

Posted in: Ghosn says in video statement he is innocent and a victim of backstabbing See in context

It doesn't really help Ghosn since it was done during his days as CEO too.

No the operation at Nissan Japan is under the leadership of the Japanese executives who admitted last year of the scandal. Ghosn was the chairman of the alliance, not the executive of the operation at Nissan Japan which also works independently from Renault. That's why the scandal was only at Nissan and did not affect Renault.

Oh dear.. Now Ghosn fanboys are claiming Ghosn was never actually the CEO of Nissan? Interesting strategy, hopefully he uses that in court hahaha

Yeah they don't look bad, and good choice for front side people and back side images. Although I think plastic notes would have been better

Lame, I thought he was going to "reveal all" like he promised in his bail-violating tweet. Disappointing.. again..

Posted in: Nissan shareholders to vote on removing Ghosn from board See in context

Yeah thankfully criminals aren't allowed on boards here, unlike in other countries. His wife's cowardly flight from justice guarantees that he won't get bail ever again. Couldn't have asked for better news!

Posted in: Ghosn's wife leaves Japan to appeal to French gov't; prosecutors want her questioned See in context

HAHAHA, what a fool the wife is! She fled the country proving her guilt in all this and shedding light on her crimes, and now guarantees that Ghosn won't ever be released on bail again as the flight risk has been confirmed and proven.

Criminals always flea like the cowards they are. Hopefully she's as silly as her husband and comes back to be arrested on arrival. This family of thieves needs to be cleaned out

Posted in: Chicago will sue actor Jussie Smollett after he refuses to pay for police overtime See in context

Regardless of whether he actually committed this as a hoax or not, if he hasn't been charged why on Earth would he need to pay the police for overtime investigation? If the police and prosecutors are in agreement that it was a hoax, then why not charge him?

Pretty clear he violated his bail terms, he is a true fool for doing so. Very happy he's back in detention

Cash from Ghosn's own "CEO office" budgets at Renault as well as Nissan moved through the regional sales divisions to SBA and on to a Lebanese intermediary, "Good Faith Investments Holding"

Good Faith Investments Holding huh? Either Ghosn has a sense of ironic humor or is a criminal troll. He's done
