You never used to see Halloween stuff in Japan until recent years. I'd be happy if they just kept Halloween out of Japan. IMHO.

Lots of Japanese go to Guam but when the marines leave, they can all go to Okinawa.
Seriously, if a Japanese family of 3 flew to Okinawa they would look to spend about $2400 or more. If they flew to Guam it would be around $1500. So, right there they would save $900 in airfare. I believe you'd find the other costs (hotel, food, etc.) more expensive, too, in Okinawa. But, maybe prices may change minus troops but maybe not for the good. I dunno. :)

Its actually going to be better for Okinawa after the marines leave. Okinawa is a tropical paradice for many people in Japan and Asia. There are loads of Taiwan, Korea, China and Hong Kong tourist... it can really develop into Hawaii of the East. Lots of Japanese go to Guam but when the marines leave, they can all go to Okinawa.
Hahahaha! Japanese could go to Okinawa now and they do! But many choose Guam over Okinawa because it is cheaper to vacation there. You make it sound like people will just shift to all start going to Okinawa because Marine are now guarding the shoreline not letting the tourists in. Ha!

America is protecting EU and Japan? That's nonsense... America is the one creating wars all over the world. Sorry but the military-industrial complex is going out of control.
America "creating" wars "all over the world." Boy! That is a hoot! America defends itself and its friends, yes. But, "creating" wars... that is just typical liberal America bashing thinking. Back to this article's topic: I would be fine with US military presence only being in the US but if that was the case then this would be a far different world and I don't mean for the better.

You have to be careful what you wish for. Maybe there will come a time when the American military will leave Japan then Japan can pay for their own defenses which they don't have the money for. Then there will be news reports of them crashing their own aircraft, arguing where the bases are located, limited information from their military about the crash, complaining about the type of aircraft flown, crime and noise ,etc., etc. caused by the Japanese military. Perhaps this could happen when the US can no longer afford to keep up the military it now has. Currently, Japan and Europe don't need to spend as much on their military budgets because of American military presence. I like Japan and America... I hope things can be resolved respectfully and peaceably. Japan/US enemies are watching and laughing.

“ongoing feminization of men”
...This is what it is alright. It's wrong. The people mentioned in this article weren't doing it to deal with an issue of being too large in this area (which would mean ahhh lose weight and do some exercise!). Instead, however, It said they feel "comforted" and feel "secure!!" It's perverted is what it is.
