If you place yourself in such an environment, it will help you understand the feelings of foreigners in Japan.
If you have money, sure, study abroad or join NPO overseas. If you don't (like me), studying English or watching Youtube in English is maybe enough from my experience.
I can speak English relatively well (for a Japanese) but rarely have seen non-Japanese people in my life. But still I understand how non-Japanese people struggle in there life (at least I believe so).
Start from language.

FYI, this party (NHKから国民を守る党) is mostly far right-wing and pro-Abe. Keep that in mind.

My only problem is with the babies on this site who would rather troll someone and call them names and take other cheap shots because they disagree with them rather than engage in intelligent debate. That's all.
If that's about me I must say I'm sorry. I don't wanna make an excuse but English is not my first language.
I respect your opinion. I thought It's interesting that usually like-minded people are divided about topics of US bases, alliance and Okinawa. Maybe I should've said "interesting" rather than "funny".

If that happened, that would be the end of the right wing in Japan.
Funny you say that because some people who usually agree with you (like Yubaru) say the withdrawing is exactly what the right wing want.
Comment from Yubaru:
Folks, Trump is doing Abe's dirty work for him here. Dont be fooled, Abe likes the idea that Trump is making these comments because this is exactly what he wants to push HIS agenda to change the constitution and specifically Article 9.

Sorry I misunderstood you. If you were talking about 専門学校 that makes sense. But I don't think "Technical College" is a appropriate word for "専門学校". Technical College is usually a word for "工業大学".

will refuse to accept to sign necessary documents for students who want to attend technical colleges or go to work
What? Sure Japanese education has tons of problems but never heard of that kind of thing. Could you tell more in detail. I went to college but many of my classmates went to work and teachers had no problem with them. Japan's university entrance rate is still 60%, after all.
And technical colleges are still colleges aren't they? I think teachers even recommends them over normal colleges.

FYI, Aiko Shimajiri (woman) is a member of LDP, and Yara (man) is supported by the opposition.
Do anyone seriously believe the banner was made by the Yara side? I hope no one.

How's that any different to how Japan carries out its business?
it's not different. The rightists in the both countries are very similar. That's why I ridiculed them in my post in the first place.

I'm not disagreeing necessarily, but could you elaborate?
obsession with economic austerity, opposing anything for the sake of opposing, never-ending party name change and merger, multiple candidates vs one LDP man in one election area, the list goes on

Hey Yubaru, Those are 東京六大学, name for univiersities known for baseball.
Yes those schoole are privileged but not "top 6". Hosei, Meiji, Rikkyo are not that hard to get into. Kyoto and many other state universities are more privileged and respected.

I'm saying even if they could put up more candidates they would still lose big time. Just look up party support poll. https://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/hst/poll/graph_seitou.html
Even Leftist Asahi says only 6% support CDPJ. Unaffiliated voters arent fond of CDPJ either as far as I know.

The CDPJ managed 63 in the last election and 55 of them won, so...
Because they fought only where they could win.

You are right about japanese countries are run by oyajis. But its not only oyajis that oppose this policy. Many anti-LDP people oppose this plan. Look at this page.
Hatena Bookmark is very liberal community. Many people oppsse summer time and its not becouse they are afreaid of change but because they think it affects Japan in a bad way. And many people are blameing LDP regime here. 「 政権のバカどもに果たしてこれが理解できるだろうか・・」「議員があんぽんたんなのはしかたないとして側近のブレーンたちは何してんだろな。考えることをやめたんだろうか。意見出すと粛清されるとか。」「 日本は自殺しようとしてる」

I'm Japanaese. Those who blaim "Joyazis" for opposition on this matter are really mistaken.
Those who are opposing savings time are the youth and liberals. Those who want to introduce this policy are LDP politicians and certain industries.
Its okay if you like or hate daylight savings time but please dont label this as another oyaji problem.
