Posted in: J-League orders Urawa to play next game in empty stadium over discriminatory banner See in context

It took decades for many fans in the UK to accept international players (some still do not - not least because of the perceived detrimental effect on the national team).

If sumo and baseball can change so to can Japanese football. Give it time.

Posted in: Japan's embrace of Russia under threat with Ukraine crisis See in context

What a shame they are talking about their own economic greed here, and not for the welfare of the Ukrainian people....pathetic

Do you really believe the West is not concerned about the economic impact? The UK for one will not allow this to undermine trade with Russia.

Posted in: Ideally, should English teachers at schools in Japan be native speakers? Can non-native English speakers do just as well or better? See in context

I once prepared a young lady for her high school entrance English test/interview. We prepared relentlessly and she was so ready. Everything was spot on. Come test time she did not do well. The non-native interviewer could not understand her 'perfect' , non-katakana English. What a joke!

Perhaps you should have prepared your student to pass the test rather than training her to mimic your 'perfect' pronunciation.

I don't envy this man his job. He's got to have ulcers the size of tangerines trying to stamp out so many fires.

Isn't he more likely to have burnt feet?

Posted in: China, S Korea, Japan spar at U.N. over Abe's Yasukuni shrine visit See in context

Even if a thousand out of millions seems like a minority, the adjacent museum proudly displaying the suicide bomber plane suggests there is a more sinister intent behind Yasukuni.

All museums "proudly" display items of war.

After centuries of racism and worse by the white world why so much fuss about a two minute ad?

tmarie - My university students often can't find countries on maps - including Russia.

Are they American?

Posted in: Bishop burned alive by Japanese troops in 1937 may become patron saint of abuse victims See in context

If this is true then it's right up there with the American atrocity in My Lai. Very few, if any, can claim the high moral ground when talking about war.

Posted in: Japanese watch Abe's Yasukuni shrine visit with mixed feelings See in context

“Even if Japan gives consideration to the feelings of China and South Korea (by not visiting the shrine), they don’t reward Japan but keep attacking us,” he said.

Hard to disagree with.
