3 days are exempt, but no mention that a covid test with the traveler to enter is much smarter.

This aircraft can respond quickly and support any of Japan's natural disasters and can land anywhere. Can be in Kyushu from Chiba quickly. JSDF does more to support natural disasters than anything else!

Posted in: Bolton memoir raises concern over Japan alliance if Trump re-elected See in context

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?

Posted in: Lavrov asks why Japan only country in world that can't accept results of World War II See in context

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

Posted in: Moscow says Japan must recognize all Kurils as Russian See in context

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.

Posted in: Diet passes bill to accept more foreign workers See in context

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.

Posted in: Gov't considering Y10 trillion stimulus to offset sales tax hike: sources See in context

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?

Posted in: Tamaki invites U.S. lawmakers to Okinawa to see base reality See in context

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.

Posted in: Okinawa governor to visit U.S. and tell Americans to stop building disputed military base See in context

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?"
