If and when he is deported, if there is no appeal, can he then turn around and apply for reentry into Japan and obtain legal status?
If someone is deported in Japan, he or she can apply for a Japanese visa again after 5 years. I think this will be the case for his mother. But I'm not sure about this boy because this is pretty unusual case. But it's certain that he won't be banned forever.

Posted in: Japan is asking U.S. President Barack Obama to make an official visit to Hiroshima when he comes to Japan in May for the G-7 summit. Doing so would make him the first sitting U.S. president to visit t See in context
As already said, no need for Obama to visit Hiroshima because Japanese leaders do not visit Nanjing and other places.

This guy, Texas Daddy, is one of the most stupid guys I have ever seen. He even said once that Japan should not regulate hate speech because of "freedom of expression". It's plain idiotic to use freedom of expression as a reason for allowing hate speech.

Japan’s prime minister said Tuesday that his nation needs to attend to its own demographic challenges posed by falling birth rates and an aging population before opening its doors to refugees.
It's been proved that Japanese people are unable to fix the low birth rate problem on their own. This problem has been seen as serious at least for 15 years in the 21st century. But things have not become better at all. It's become worse.
If he says Japan must fix that problem before taking in refugees, that means Japan will never accept refugees.

Japanese historians also say that they will release their own statement on 25th of this month. Let's wait and see it.

If those historians really want to make an impact in Japan, why is there no japanese translation of this "letter" available? Just asking. They could buy an ad site in the asahi or mainichi newspapers.
There is already a lot of translation available on Japanese webs. This PDF is one of them.

This country needs more people like Murakami
Yes, and Japan does not need any more historical revisionists.

I'm not sure if you really know what's going on. But one American history textbook published by McGraw-Hill has some statement on comfort women. So Japanese government asked them to correct it. But McGraw-Hill and its author historian "rebuffed" Japanese demand to correct its statement.
I guess there will be more demand by the Japanese to correct it in the future. What I meant is U.S. should rebuff it even if there is another demand.
There is already the 2nd trial (below article) by Japanese historians to correct its statement over comfort women issue.

No other nationalities including Japanese do not have the privilege.
HAHAHA. How ignorant. Any foreigner, not just Koreans, can use it in Japan. All websites talking about the 2nd name says that all foreigners can use it. Read the below website of one local government, Moroyama.

a woman's party, run by a women.
There was "Women's Party" during 1993-2011 in Japan. But during the 18 years, none of their candidates was elected.

How can he be the Mayor of Osaka with a mind like this?
Because people in Osaka, or Japanese people in general, are as stupid as this guy.

If you believe the theory of Japan freeing other countries from oppression by oppressing said countries, then you are an idiot,
Many Japanese believe it now. There is a bunch of idiots in Japan. Obviously, there is no bright future for this country.
What's sad is that those brain-dead right-wingers think that the people outside of Japan are stupid enough to believe those lies that Japanese empire liberated Asia.
And they think that they, or Japanese in general, deserve to be respected no matter what they do, even they deny history.

Fools do not learn anything until they face consequence. Japanese did not learn that they were doing something wrong until 2 A-bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They would not learn this time again until they face dire consequences from this action.
BTW, to answer a question from some people, they are doing it because they believe that by revising it, they can prove that their ancestors were innocent and did not do anything wrong.

All this is Abe's fault.
No, it's not his fault. He was chosen by Japanese people. And he's still got high approval rate now. Many Japanese are approving this review and they are expecting the government to repeal Kono Statement at the end. It's the fault of Japanese people. You have to stop overestimating Japanese people and realize that many Japanese are morons like Abe.

better educated politicians please
There is no "better educated politician" in Japan. Or Japanese people simply would not vote for them because they are not educated at all. So you can give up on Japan. This country is doomed.

Several months ago, I said here "Japanese politicians will never stop visiting Yasukuni no matter what you guys say"(Check my past comments). So Abe is visiting Yasukuni now.
I repeat it that Japanese politicians will never stop visiting Yasukuni no matter what you guys (foreigners) say.

Then why don't the men have mature discussions with their wives as to how they - both - want the finances to work and how they can make that happen? If a married man, who is presumably an adult, is working, handing over his paycheck to his wife and unhappy with the financial situation it would behove him to act like a man and do something about it. Discussing things like adults is a good way to start solving problems.
Many Japanese women do not even accept discussion. They say that they do not want to work no matter what. That's why men do not want to marry them.

This is a reflection of the distorted view of history being taught in Japanese schools. Japanese politicians will continue to put their feet in their mouths while their distorted views of history continues to be taught in their schools, and the world will never fully trust Japan as a result.
It's not what's taught at schools. Japanese people are beginning to distort history "on their own" That means, Japanese people will keep that view, with or without any school textbook. There is no way to change it.

Are you serious? Did this misinformation come from a Japanese high school textbook? If this is truly so, why were three-quarters of the 200,000 women beaten, starved and raped to death? Yeah, they were paid (a pittance), but there choice was, do it or die!
This kind of misinformation is rapidly spreading on Japanese webs like pandemic. It's not from high school textbooks. But it's rampant on Japanese webs. You have to eliminate Internet itself if you want to eliminate misinformation.
