Should she become prime minister, Japan would move even farther to the far right with her pre Second World War mentality, even worse than former Prime Minister Abe.

What a pity! With Suga as president of the LDP, the general election would have looked bleak for the LDP. A new "old face" will get more votes from the people who are easily tricked.

Here's a dumb comment. Is this number (2, 962) based on the 2,490 tests done yesterday?

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and Emperor Naruhito, totally different hearts.

JT, why do you always compare numbers with the day before? This is useless.

Click on "new coronavirus cases" in the first line of this article. Then you will find the numbers of tests.

If this number is based on the 15,561 tests done on Wednesday, we get a positivity rate of about 37%. If it's based on the 12,287 tests done yesterday, then the positivity rate is about 47%. Hmm . . .

Suga, Nishimura, Kato, Koike, . . . sound like a broken record.

This is what my Japanese teacher said 47 years ago:
Nippon for the country. Usually Nihon when used like an adjective. Nihonjin, Nihongo, Nihonkai, . . .
If I'm not wrong, NHK used to say Nihonjin. Now they say Nipponjin.

Umami is a natural taste. I can easily taste it in shiitake and cheese.
MSG isn't natural. It's a food additive mainly produced by Ajinomoto. It's a chemical flavour enhancer. It can cause various health problems. Headaches in my case. A certain company in Japan uses umami and MSG as synonyms, therefore trying to deceive us consumers. Most of my Japanese friends aren't aware of this.
Why have more and more food companies in Europe started to produce food without MSG? Actually, there are some in Japan, too.
A friend of mine manages several ramen restaurants in a European country. As a matter of course, you will find a sign at the entrance: "We don't use MSG!"
