Living with the enemy. No love, no agreements, no tolerance, no consideration.

@Sensei258- Thanks for reminding me about Hachioji’s festival. It also coincides with the Fussa City Tanabata festival running from Aug 1-4.

Also, Akiruno City, (on the Itsukaichi line from Haijima Station, getting off in Akigawa Station), is very similar to Hachioji’s festival. It has both floats and mikoshis, and the heat is not a brutal as in Hachioji. It is held only one day on a Saturday, so it should be on 3 August.

The city of Hamura on the Ome line holds its festival on the 27th and 28th of July. They bring the Samba dancers. On the same dates, Fussa City holds the festival of dashi and mikoshi fights right in front of the Fussa station in the afternoon after they go around their neighbohoods.

It is definitely one of the best seasons in Japan.

Back in the days when mikoshis used to be humongous, I was invited to participate in the Suwa festival in Tachikawa. The mikoshi was really big and they were people on top of it. It would take about 150 to carry it. On a fast turn around a corner street we struck the side of the building and did some damage to it. We continued business as usual as we were all drunk by then.

Like Beer DeliveryMan says, before Japan was invaded,(psychologically), and forced to change to Western values and economy of war, the Samurai practiced homosexualism with their young aporenctice or Wakashu. This was known as the art of Wakashudo.

I do not vote because that is just a validation tool for the shadow government. Yes, he is a puppet of the Money Masters and behind the wars for unjust profits. Short of Satan’s right hand. In fact, all presidents follow a scrypt from the Money Masters. If they deviate, they end up being killed like Kennedy, Lincoln, and others.

Posted in: Tamaki wants U.S., Japan, Okinawa talks on U.S. base move See in context

Bertie has a good point. According to USMC Maj Gen Smedley D Butler, who the MC bases in Okinawa are named after, DOD and its wars is the biggest racket, wich operates in 7 continents. His video enactment and essay are in the Internet. That explains why United States needs to manufacture enemies. Bill Still goes on to explain how the bankers took control over the governments through the central banks, which basically control the stakes in war industries,(hence the blatant War Department, which changed to “Defense” departement. His video documental, The Money Masters, is in You-Tube. An excellent documental.

Posted in: More Muslim prayer rooms open in Japan, but relatively few takers See in context

Catering to a particular ideology or group of people will only bring resentment to the ones being excluded. Why not call it any purpose or faith meditation room. This way it will be a silent prayer and nobody has to listen to somebody else’s loud prayers.

I agree with Kurisupisu. Took the words out of my mouth.

You are right Bertie. Unfortunately, Japan’s occupation status does not allow it to exercise its sovereignty in many of its own affairs.

Many cases like these took place when I was in Okinawa 10 years ago. I suspect the mixing of cheap alcohol, Happoshu, along with sake or shoshu, or both. Police should always inquire about what was drunk to possibly establish a trend. He was probably confused.

RT has a more detailed information. It states that he apparently was in contact with CIA officials. Good opportunity for Russia to make a swap deal. Semper Fi. Hope it works for the good on both sides.

Apparently no justice was delivered for these people. Whatever settlement is imposed should not bankrupt the company, nor does compensate for pain and suffering.
