Does Japan's constitution prevent what Emperor can say? The message to me is not straight.

Mitsuo Matsuyama wrote "By the way, the Japanese government made a lot of mistakes back in those days the same way that all countries involved in that war were wrong."
are you saying that because all countries defended themselves and they were wrong?
What is this logic?

As a PM, he is making a political statement on behalf Japan.

Yes, that is true. Here is the quote from Wikipedia "Although the two countries had fought intermittently since 1931, total war started in earnest in 1937 and ended only with the surrender of Japan in 1945. The war was the result of a decades-long Japanese imperialist policy aiming to dominate China politically and militarily and to secure its vast raw material reserves and other economic resources, particularly food and labour. Before 1937, China and Japan fought in small, localized engagements, so-called "incidents". In 1931, the Japanese invasion of Manchuria by Japan's Kwantung Army followed the Mukden Incident. The last of these incidents was the Marco Polo Bridge Incident of 1937, marking the beginning of total war between the two countries."

I have always been wondering why Japan do not reexamined what it has done in the world II? And has not been willing to admit its bad behavior and has not been willing to apologize to the countries they had invaded at that time? What had been seeded at that time is what has been growing. If Japan is not willing to face the history, then it will face more and more aggressive actions from China.

Posted in: I don't want to see incidents where businesses refuse people's entries just because they're foreigners. There are many non-Japanese residents living in our prefecture, and it's not desirable to build walls in such places.
