France government sometimes appear to support with China when it comes to the economy. But in the area of security in the Indo-pacific region, both of the countries have to make a strong tie to protect the region.

Posted in: Crisis-hit Sri Lanka invites Japan to resume investment See in context

Sri Lanka must have deeply sensed China’s attempt for the past decade. At that point was good for Japan to resume to help and be involved with this country.

But at the same time, we have to monitor the foreign minister,Hayashi. Who is the man on the photo

He is a super pro-Chinese.

Posted in: Japan to see price hikes on 35,000 food, drink items by end of 2023 See in context

As GDP in Japan has been almost not rising for the past 20 years, GDP per capita was left behind by South Korea last year , Taiwan

So I wish this price hike make the trigger to Japan economic growth

In order to make it happen, I want Japanese government to urge mid-small business to rise wage

This is very very hard, though

Posted in: Japan seeks experts' dialogue with China on Fukushima water release See in context

It’s really strange. Because IAEA has already had a proof that the treated water is within the standard value.

How come Japan have to dispatch “experts” to China ?

Posted in: China begins blanket radiation testing on seafood imports from Japan See in context

The demand of Japanese seafood won’t change in other countries and Japan.

At that point , people may be able to easily get more Japanese seafood.

Posted in: Hong Kong's seafood businesses brace for sales slump as Japan plans to discharge wastewater See in context

It's so pity that HK residents would eat fewer seafoods or stop eating them.

This is because of something media, like HK or China government control.

Japan has made an so much effort and urged EU and IAEA to explain the safety of treated water scientifically and logically.

But only South Korea and China try to disgrace Japan

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant prepares to release diluted radioactive water into sea See in context

It is pity that some coutures take such actions without scientific and logical perspective  

But in return, it reached the agreement between Japan and EU yesterday. Which is  EU lifted import restrictions from Japan since Fukushima’s nuclear accident.

It means it tune to be no need to take inspections of radioactivity for food trading

This is because Japanese government’s effort to urged EU to prove safety and EU understood it scientifically and logically.

Posted in: Japan space agency rocket explodes during engine test See in context

Recent failure of JAXA might be result in the Japan government (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan) having not willing to invest for science for decades

I suppose Japan should invest more for Space technologies to be able to compete with other countries.

Posted in: Japan, NATO interests increasingly align but ties still just symbolic See in context

It would become more strong er relations with European democratic countries.

However Japanese and Japanese government would be concerned about Japan’s self-defence forces will have to join in wars in return

Which means democratic countries help each other and be sacrificed for each other

South Korea also discharged as twice as Fukushima’s “wastewater”.

the main purpose is the same as china that is they want to disgrace Japan.

Posted in: Hong Kong will ban more products from Japan if treated wastewater is discharged, its leader says See in context

China also discharges treated as 2.2-6.5 times as radioactive wastewater into the sea.

So I think this protest is not logical and scientific.

It is more like china try to disgrace Japan.

Posted in: One dead as heavy rain triggers landslides in Kyushu See in context

In the past recently 10 years, there were several heavy rainfalls in Northern Kyushu region caused often landslides and floods and was a result in killing people and houses destroyed. 

The monsoon, which is a very warm and humid air from East China Sea, flows into the western part of Japan at a late rainy season and apparently continue to build up rain clouds for long time. 

I suppose we cannot avoid such a rainfalls. Only way is to construct higher embankments or residents there have to move to other places.

Posted in: Japan to ease COVID border controls, entry quarantine from March See in context

Japan is planning to ease its cap on the number of daily new entrants from overseas

that is a good decision.

in general Japan government must allow more foreign students who desire to study in Japan to enter through a whole year.

But at the same time, it needs to inspect carefully if the students are attempting to steal a lot of technologies to make use of military after they are back to their country, such as totalitarian countries.

Posted in: Moon expects next S Korean gov't to improve ties with Japan See in context

The relationship between S Korea & Japan won’t improve dramatically even if whoever become new president.

It can’t be helped because of it relying on Chinese stronger economy and also the geographical disadvantage.

S Korea is connected to China and N Korea. As long as China economy weakens dramatically, S Korea won’t get closer to Japan or democratic countries.

We believe that Japan can play a very important role in that Japan is the only G-7 country" in Asia, he added.

yes. It’s right for Japan to take some actions as a leader in Asia.

Unfortunately as long as Kishida stays as a prime minister , nothing will be done. Cannot be expected. He’s just focused on how he can win the election coming this July and keep higher his approval rate.

Posted in: S Korea, Taiwan expected to top Japan in GDP per capita in 2027, 2028 See in context

As long as the relation between the government and the ministry of finance being NOT dramatically renewed, Japan’s economy will continue to be a slow growth and behind other countries.

Also if many people realize there are a lot of media controls existing, they can discriminate which information is better for Japan’s economy and economic security also.

Posted in: Kishida says only LDP capable of protecting Japan from security threats See in context

I don’t 100% agree with Kishida’s economic policy but,

as he mentioned above,

“The upcoming election is about choosing the future of Japan."

It’s not an exaggeration that next election is going to be a touchstone for Japanese that which thought they support, which thought can lead its economic growth in future. Which is Democratic or Communism.

It was unfair for two of the women not to to be asked about national security and diplomacy during debate in the japan national press club (JNPC).

Takaichi is the only person other than 4 candidate that she has obviously mentioned the necessaries of national security.

I’m very sad not to be able to see his play in this Olympic.

But he did his best. 

He was in like God’s territory as a gymnast for a long time. He’s an all-round player. I remember even Chinese gymnasts, strongest team in the world, gave up catching up his score and beating his beautiful performances at other Olympic

I wish next new wonderful Japanese athletes appears.

Posted in: U.S. to seek global rules on AI misuse, Blinken says See in context

I think this rule is going to be important for not only US but also other Democratic countries.

In EU it also made a rule for AI as an ethical code.

All these are for valuing an ethical perspectives and preventing greater control from some authoritarian countries

Since the bankrupt in 2010 and the government support, it seems JAL experienced drastically a cost cut and also maybe a rational business.

Posted in: Japan says Chinese military likely behind cyberattacks See in context

China wants aerospace technology desperately, that’s why the ministry might’ve attempted the hackings.

One Chinese IT company became the largest shareholder of RAKUTEN.

Japan government and USA constantly investigate Rakuten accordingly, and monitor what the Chinese company has attempted.

So we have to keep an eye on many possibilities which they may attempt.

Posted in: Taiwan envoy hopes Japan will play greater role in regional stability See in context

Japan have to show more leadership. Unfortunately so far the government has struggled with everything they have done.

Even though Japan has more trade with China, it have to make up its mind of sacrificing its economy down by shifting the trade to other counties.

Posted in: Tokyo, Osaka consider asking gov't to issue another state of emergency See in context

I dont think the cities in Tokyo last weekend was quieter ,following the preventive measure for Tokyo region.

To make Tokyo Olympic successful, we have to stand the coming Golden week under state of emergency or more strict measure for short time.

Im not sure Suga-san has taken current situation seriously or not.
