Posted in: U.N. nuclear arms ban treaty leaves Japan in a dilemma See in context

@Peter Neil

Maybe yes or maybe no. The US doesn't always live up to treaties. If Putin wiped out Japan, Trump would say he knows more about nuclear than anyone and talk about how beautiful the mushroom clouds were and it would be a win for American car companies.

Comment of the year!

Posted in: Japanese KitKats are shrinking; Nestlé says previous size may have been too large for customers See in context

Nobody does KitKats quite like Japan. Here, they come in all sorts of unique varieties like sakura, sake, and cough drop....

But the taste isn’t as good! Back home the normal KitKats taste much more delicious than the ones here in Japan!

Posted in: No jail for parents who left daughters at home while they used COVID cash handout for hotel stay See in context

The justice system in Japan is pathetic! This is a disaster waiting to happen and sooner or later these parents will kill their daughters through their reckless behavior! The judge delivering this judgment should also be held accountable when that happens...

Posted in: Tokyo government considers fining people who knowingly go out when infected with COVID-19 See in context

With limited testing ( as well as not testing people who show mild symptoms) this entire plan to fine people is just a farce!

Posted in: Japan, IOC agree to postpone Tokyo Olympics for one year See in context

Just a few days ago these same clowns were adamant that the Tokyo Olympic will go ahead. Now they are talking about the safety of athletes when in reality they were the least bit concerned about it. Countries like Canada and Australia did the right thing of simply telling that that they were prioritizing the safety of their athletes and team members by pulling out. The IOC and Japan Olympic Committee put money before human life in their reckless decision to keep the Olympic on schedule until now. It’s just a shame that they didn’t have a plan B since Japan is so prone to disasters like earthquakes or even if Mt. Fuji had erupted! What would they have done then? Japan Government and Tokyo Olympic Committee were saying that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to postpone it and IOC were also saying that postponement will not happen...fools! Well at least people in Japan can get tested more easily and more realistic infection rate numbers can be released after the postponement!

Posted in: Coronavirus temporary legislation likely to clear lower house on March 12 See in context

@Jim... my friend’s wife and daughter also down with fever for 6 days now and despite going to the right clinic as advised by the authorities they weren’t tested for the virus! So yes, you are absolutely right that the actual number of infected are much higher in Japan!

Be more cautious and take care everyone in Japan. Don’t be so naive like some careless commenters here who seem to take this outbreak so lightly! The truth is that the infection is life threatening and you all should be extremely careful!
