We all need to be Cheered-Up these days. Embrace the concept and have fun. I am for Granny and Grandpa Cheery Cafe's too. They have great sense of humor and it might cheer them up as well. Stop being negative! This is a pandemic and not the time to be negative about cheeriness. Try positive & Cheer Everyone Cheer !!!

First let the international boy scout troops set up camp to settle things down a bit . Perhaps installing a non-sectarian shrine dedicated to all the victims of previous Pacific wars. It could be island condominium administered by both China & Japan to further foster better understanding of shared mutual Asian values. No guns allowed but perhaps building a weather & earthquake warning station. I would never consider a McDonalds but how about a dim sum/sushi bar using the local catch to encourage dialog through hospitality.

Great way to "monkey around" in Tokyo. More of us should take on the persona of the animal world and let go a bit. No problem if he got dropped on his head as a kid. He appears fully functional now and maybe more attractive to opposite genders. Who knows just lighten-up more today given the fact this is a terrible pandemic

I just love the mean "A" look on her face. Certainly not the kind of daughter that any Sino-Soviet political famly hoped to turn out better. Let them blast all the rockets and shells they want. These kind of childen with their own nuclear arsenal always want & need attention. No natural consequences as long as we listen to them!

Eat everyone Eat. Where can I find a Japanese katsu chain Katsuya outside of Nihon ? Be well eat well. Juanito

Good Outcome? This is a remark from a 77 year young fellow. Replace one old turtle with another older turtle. Will that really do the trick? The woman in Japan is truly a gift to overall society and on the rise for a Lady PM ?

Sex toys for fun and profit. Why not use them in these dark days of isolation and lack of human contact. Breaking the taboo and bias about keeping one's sex life so private. Embrase it and perhaps you will find that your favorite toy is something you will see as such a goof friend. So basically I never met a dildo I didn't like !

This type of crime has got to stop. Those over 60 are getting out of control during this pandemic. Maybe he "forgot to take his meds" or was just acting like politicians "on the take" . Well that will need to stop . No?

That settles that. Any idea or keeping my reservation for Sakura in Kyoto must be cancelled. Maybe Momiji but that depends if ANA honors my ticket cancelled last November 2020. Get to it Taro, Japan should have been in the front of the line with thier own vaccine . Can't depend on China, Russia, USA or Europe to do this job !

Taro Kono he's our man if can't do it no one can. Should be PM in the 1st place. As I mentioned in a previous post he has the look of a street fighter. Watch him get into his Joe Palloka suit and lay down the law . Speaking good English is a plus but he will need to use stern Japanese language to get it under control by this summer !

Nothing like a foreign scapgoat. So easy to identify and easy to convict. Should be careful as the rage of St. Patrick might just protect a man called Kelly. St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland and perhaps a few made it to Japan. Such a lovely country with such lovely maners unless you get caught up in their legal system

Sorry for his situation and break-up with a former lover. Things just happen but never consider a nuke reaction

No joke, just a great recipe !
Must try this in the winter months to stay warm. Baba adds a special Nihon taste to the world-wide recipes of stuffed peppers. Like is hair-do and glasses. His kitchen looks like it gets some use. Not really messy but full of stuff to make great meals in a small space. Can we say it is good idea for filling your face with some happiness.

Better to give money to your US protector than let the Sino/Russian thugs taking over the seas surrounding Japan. China is following the same game plan fortifying South China Sea used by pre-WW2 Japan. No go military/off limits. Nihon occupied from the Gilbert to the Caroline & Northern Mariana Islands. Did that work?

Hiding in a sex shop is a great way to disguise yourself. Maybe a little role playing as "The Mask Mommy" to amuse the Yakuza. They might need some maternal affection during trying times to help with criminal anxiety

Obama a real class act. Born in Hawaii where respect for the elderly is normal. Bowing has always been part of my behavior in Japan while visiting the "land of the rising sun" for almost 45 years. The Emperor seemed pleased to met another gentle person. A curtsy to HRM the Queen has always seemed correct why not a bow?

Give me the Nanny State any day of the week. People need to be reminded of certain dangers if absent minded or in a rush to nowwhere. Falling not only hurts the falling person but others below or above. Take it from me. A very kind Afro-American gentle person saved me on a near escalator fall with luggage in hand @ Penn Station. Always remind myself to be careful and respect the safety of others even if I am a foolish @ 76 !

Yes I am guilty, Every year when visiting Japan I grab farm animals. Nothing as nice as my beside the road chicken stuffed with cilantro roasted on an open fire. Carlos G actually wanted to take a cow on his escape from Tokyo, but it was too big to fit in a private jet. Killing the golden hen has always been a favorite of the political class. However never very popular with overseas bandits curently roaming the countryside looking for golden eggs to make French toast . Perhaps providing better take-away food @ 7/11 might stop these guys from ''grab a snack tactics" @ local farms in the middle of the night . Pigs ears and tails are popular items to steal among this class but not everyone eats pork . So eat everyone eat it is a pandemic and time to be kind

Pity about Kono, he should have been elected PM. However being side lined comes right from the Trump play book. "Replace him with a relative" and keep him out of any future new govenment. Hope the new gang of five can produce results. Abe was a handsome international fellow who had the right guy a defense minister. Kono had the look of an old street fighter like Joe Palooka but spoke excellent English and a geat sense of humor !

Oh what a terrible loss to the world of worthless reality TV. In New England they have earned their real name "Kartrashians"; self promoting ex-sex tape stars . Hollywood has dropped to the lowest form of entertainment .They paint a terrible picture of the USA today as entitled "role models" who are sadly all about money,money

Just ignore Tubby for now. He and the Blond Bandit can take the center stage again after the health crisis is over. Kim will never give up his nukes' and Trump will never stop lying, so let's live with it. More important things to do today and the Chinese hold all the cards for now. We ignored them until it was evident they just might be a military threat with ICMB capability. Hope the Easter Bunny got through the lockdown yesterday ?

Why pick on the old folks. They are having a difficult time getting around and sometimes loose their balance. However if they are those 86 year old men trolling for children in supermarkets please bump into them giving a good kick in where the sun does not shine. At age 76 about 200 lbs over 6 feet I have the advantage, but sometimes I run into people by mistake. Afro-American folks in NYC are the most forgiving but my Boston brethren are not. Never got bumped in Japan .Furthermore the expression " If you bump into him or her please say hello" might take on new meaning if we were not so busy . Love the little older ladies in Kyoto in matching hats who have a pack mentaliy when boarding buses. Usually the lead lady gets to the door first then the sharp elbow troop follows to secure seats. Younger girls might take notice to travel safely with older ladies
HAPPY ST PATRICKS DAY

They forgot to list the usual suspects Jimmy Kelly and Timmy Dolan from Northern Ireland. Sick world full of hate in the name of religion. It can happen anywhere and will as long as we play on discrimination for political gain. Happy Easter and Passover as we try to understand ignorance in the name of our personal belief systems

Now I know why the Koreans are called the Irish of the North Pacific. It only took us 700 years to drive out the English but we will never let it go. As these politician get older they forget everything except the grudges. Grudgingly displaying reluctance and unwillingness to acceptance the fact WW2 is over. I believe Japanese compensation in 1965 was the end of that discussion. They do not need to be great buddies but should realize the many cultural things shared in common. The threat up North and across the Sea of Japan should be a good reason to keep better relations in order to survive. In the meantime as my Anglo-Irish Grandmother reminded me; try telling better jokes about your former Imperial adversary and you win the resentment game

Really sad story .... Everyone needs some kind of help these days to cope. However agreeing to kill a very desperate depressed teenage girl is truly sick. Her parents should take notice and the police should lock up this pervert before he acts out his fantasy again ! What a way to get-off, try self abuse over murder any day

The PRC communist party should send letters of condolences to the families of the 20 million Chinese they let starve. Let us not forget the thousands of South Korean, and UN soldiers they killed in order to put the Kim family in power to continue the same brutality !

It appears our neighbor friend from Brazil missed the Protestant Ethics program during his Jesuit education in Lebanon. Also he will not be too pleased with his current accommodations in Tokyo They appear to lack that certain "omotenashi" so very familiar in Japanese culture . I had planned to visit Carlos with a hospitality kit (holiday obento box) with some of his favorite goodies. Carlos always enjoyed pao de queijo , pimenta malagueta , farinha de mandioca , polvilho doce and azedo , trigo para quibe , azeite dende , feijoada , but I cancelled my annual Momiji trip to Nihon this week from Buenos Aires. Hope he likes the local rice porridge.

As my old next door Rabbi would say to me ( his favorite 16 year old Shabbos goy) that this is a person we can not afford. The Rabbi was poor as a shul mouse but rich in his sense humor, ecumenical spirit and charity. Miss Barr would have been seen in my opinion as tref after attacking members of her own tribe like George Soros with her anti-semetic rage. She is the perfect pawn for the recent wave of hate and blame being prosecuted out of the Whitehouse. Turn the topic of immigrants into outright discrimination into beware of those people. After all they are not like us who pray to strange gods and look so different
I would not trust Donnie to turn on a dime for the opportunity to enrich himself at the cost of his family or the nation. Mr. Kushner beware of the Pharisees among you and yours ! Ms. Barr is gone for good but this time around no well meaning Mormon healer in Utah will not interceded on her behalf. It is interesting that Mitt Romney is one of the few Republicans who claims his moral seat but was seen as a dangerous member of a religious cult by the Christiane right wing base when he was a recent presidential candidate.

No it was an attack with a dead weapon. Poor fellow should have gone to a local soap land with lots of Viagra and better intentions. Did they lock him up and ask that he wear sand paper mittens in order not to hurt the person he truly loves. Terrible and dangerous behavior from this old fellow. Not a laughing matter if he came crashing through your door. Banish the pervert to off shore islands in the Sea of Japan until he truly repents

Yes Liam looks a bit scruffy next to lovely Arisa. Hope he did not try to pull off a St. Patrick's Day make on this lovely Japanese beauty. Her husband Koji has a very strong baseball pitchers right hand and I am sure a great punch to match. Well all in the spirit of great friendship we love seeing the Irish and Japanese getting on so well. Have a laugh on this comment and our support for actors who represent us very well in this troubled world. God bless from this Irish passport holder. A "Plastic Paddy" hailing from both North & South America!
