Posted in: Asian shares mostly fall amid worries about slowing economy See in context

North America have their USMCA for which they work together to maintain, improve, protect and grow their economy/interests together. Europe also have the same which is European Union.

East Asia (South Korea, Japan and China) can work together (economically) and have the same too but they are been divided-and-conqured by outsider forces.

In the end, North America will put NA first, EU will put Europe first, and, so, East Asia should work together to put themselves first too.

Posted in: Yen, inflation at levels unseen in decades not likely to sway BOJ See in context

The USD is appreciating rather than the Yen declining. This, of course, affects other currencies including the Indian Rupee, SK Won, and Chinese Renminbi. Japan Inc does not want the Yen appreciating against them.

Don't worry, the Japanese Yen is at an all time low against the Chinese Yuan (from earliest year 1996 google currency conversion)

Posted in: For Asian American women, Olympics reveal a harsh duality See in context

Just listen to her own stories. When she was 15 she was subjected to extensive abuse and hate-filled messages that nobody should be subject to, especially a teenage girl. She was assaulted while out walking with her 80 year old grandmother.

Yupe, here are few more examples of racism experienced by Asian-American Olympians.

Racist attack Asian-American (Asian people, Vietnam, Japan) in USA.



Olympic snowboard gold medalist Chloe Kim speaks out on experience with Asian-hate comments


"I get hundreds of these [racist] messages [on Instagram] and it breaks my heart that people think this type of behavior is okay."

"Kim said she stopped speaking Korean to her parents in public and 'was so ashamed and hated' that she was Asian. She added that she had been spit on in public before as well."

This is why Asian people in USA needs to stand up and push/fight back against these racism together.

Why does Suga asks Bach? Does the IOC decides, implements and controls the covid-19 safety measures/vaccinations for foreign arrivals and the japanese internal vaccination programs?

It seems Aso/Japan is out of synch and out of the loop.

"Princess Mako expresses strong resolve to get married"

If that doesn't seem to be something someone forced or dictated you to say/feel, I don't know what is.

Posted in: Japan to open English-speaking support office to lure foreign financial firms See in context

It is not just language, economic or political policies; It is China. Rather, it is Hong Kong's connection to China.

China's economy is much larger, dynamic and expansive than Japan's. And financial institutions and businesses being in Hong Kong can tap into that market. But not so much from Japan.

Japan wasn't able to become the financial hub for Asia/East Asia when it was at the height of its economic power, and it can't certainly be it now when it is so much weaker.

Posted in: Female imperial family members to be barred from key succession rite See in context

Why would the imperial family allows the Japanese government dictate such term for this event? Would the imperial family members have enough courage and honor to grow a backbone and boycott this event or tell the Japanese government to back off?

Posted in: Abe promises Trump new Japanese investment in U.S. See in context

China is one of the main actors here, but you don’t see Xi excessively tries to please Trump.

Oh really? Xi / China promised to buy $70 Billion of goods from the US.

Trump is able to bully South Korea, Japan and China and get away with it because they are divided.

All we know is that they were a missionary group, in most countries it would be the rated but we all know how paranoid China can be.

I believe Proselytism, especially those from foreign religious groups, is illegal in China, right?

There were reports of foreign Christian groups trying to convert Muslims in Xinjiang and China put at stop to that as well.

You should try to respect other countries laws when visiting.

Posted in: Abe tells N Korea: Release Japanese abductees or no aid See in context

Whatever amount of aid Japan think it is willing to give, South Korea can do 10 times or even 100 times better.

North Korea's leader already met South Korea's Leader, China's Leader and have release Americans back to America and will meet USA's leader soon. And then, what have Japan contributed or gotten so far to/from this current negotiation? Nothing.

Japan really overestimate its importance or significance on this matter.

It is good to see both Koreas are working together to resolve THEIR problem. This is only the first step toward a peaceful resolution , but it is a big step forward.

Lets hope other countries don't sabotage this process.

Posted in: Trade issues expose limits of Trump-Abe 'bromance' See in context

Just because the American pat you on your head doesn't indicate there are any "bromance" between the two countries/leaders as euphoria-ted by the Japanese press.

One is the master, and the other is the vassal. I'll let you guess which is which.

Tradition forbids women from entering the ring on the grounds that it is sacred and their presence, considered "unclean", would pollute it.

The only unclean and dirty thing here is this tradition. I wonder where these men were born from if not women.

Posted in: Abe asks Moon to visit Japan before inter-Korean summit See in context

Abe goes to USA to get a pat on the head to get its master's approval.

In a sense, Abe mistakenly believes Japan's relationship with South Korea is like USA's to Japan.

Abe and Japan really need a gigantic douse of reality.
