All of a sudden the Okinawans are happy with the American bases. How ironic.

Japan needs to pay its' fair share or the US should pull out. When China takes parts of the Ryukyu chain islands they state are historically theirs, don't call the US for help. China is waiting for this day whether it's 10 or 50 years.

In 20,000 years the half-life of this isotope will be safe and a mute point. The solution to this is dilution. I wouldn't eat anymore sea food from eastern Japan any longer.

Since any vote us meaningless and will not change the outcome the OPG should ask that the new Henoko airbase be called "ONAGA Airbase" after the late Governor.

That is the fate of Japan: a strong China means a strong Japan, a prosperous China means a prosperous Japan, a safe China means a safe Japan. Abe got it finally.
and when China says "islands historically that belonged to China are now going to be part of China", what are you going to do now?

The islands will always remain part of Russia. The price paid for Japan's WWII crimes and aggressions.

The islands belong to Russia and they will never cede them back to Japan. These negotiations are only giving false hope to those who haven't moved on. Sorry to say but to anyone who believes otherwise is just foolish.
Remember, don't give any precedent to China for any disputed islands to include the Ryukyus. Once America withdraws its military from Asia due to economic costs the door will open for China to claim all historical islands.

This is a big win for Businesses in Japan. Pay foreign visa workers lower than current salaries, don't allow any families to come. able to send back to their own country if sick or injured, when no longer needed deport them back home. Reminds me of what happen to Korean and Chinese workers years ago.

The USA cut taxes and the economy took off like a rocket, and tax revenues collected by the government have been record breaking monthly. Anyone ever get the opinion that tax rate is too high in Japan?

I think he can get some Chinese government people to talk to before any American politicians. Maybe he can get them to build an island off the coast of Okinawa?
The airfield is moving to Henoko, and this is a Japan central government decision. American officials have always said that Henoko is the best solution.

Visiting the USA is a waste of money. What most people don't understand is that you can't just move part of the Marine Corps off Okinawa, but move all of it since it is a team. Most Americans are more than willing to pull all of our military out of Japan. All it takes is the GOJ to say the US military isn't needed anymore.
Just don't call the US when China claims only half of the Ryukyu chain as historically theirs. The funny part will be they are only taking back half of the Ryukyus to show they aren't being unreasonable!
Trump was quoted as saying: "what's a Denny? I thought it was a restaurant?"

Tourism creates minimum pay seasonal jobs. The only thing all the touted malls have done is created ghost town shopping areas in many locations throughout Okinawa. It has killed off many of the generational small businesses in favor of one stop shopping areas where you can buy the world in one trip. Very sad as I miss the many obachan ojiichan stores that made up everyday life in Okinawa that are now almost all gone.
