Posted in: Japan's lower house speaker admits links with Unification Church See in context

Japan's politicians were so corrupted, the ruling L.D.P. is taking money from that criminal organisation: The Unification Church.

LDP is taking money from UC? Nowhere in this article or any media reports in the past said that far.

Isn't that still a bit of stretch even if it is common practice in China?

Getting bored with these just "LINKS" or "TIES" as those are not phenomena only for LDP.

For example, CDPJ had ties too , Kiyomi Tsujimoto who has been bashing LDP for these ties just got her boomerang she threw hit her back by media reports that she herself had ties taking part in a gatherings (UC study meetings more than just once) .

Japan and Korea tension?Created by the Americans themselves!

You don't know Japanese and Korean history very do you ?

Japan first invaded korea in 1592

And you don't know East Asian history do you? China or East Asia cannot be talked about without bloody wars' histories. Using the word " Invaded" in such a simple way is just laughable

Japan and Korea tension? Created by the Americans themselves! Only people with low IQ could not figure that out.

East Asia is safe and peaceful if being left as it is, without American interference and intervention. But an unstable East Asia is good for military business, which is Americas major economic driving force.

FACT!

Tension between Japan and South Korea, I repeat, South Korea.. is not something created by Americans. If you disagree, do elaborate how

Surprise Huh? 25,000 people formed the long line to mourn on a week day from all over Japan. If it was a week end or holiday, it would probably be a lot more

What a contrast Japan and Germany’s respective stances regarding compensation for the suffering and distress each caused. Japan arrogant, legalistic, and essentially devoid of compassion. Germany’s, high minded, generous in the extreme, and not reluctant to renegotiate. None of this mealy mouthed, statute of limitations has passed so we’re in the clear crapola.

Still this kind of soapy compliments when Polish government slams German rejection of Warsaw’s WWII reparations claim

Mmm. Several 'hundred' protesters. That kind of sums it up. Seems that more non Japanese residents on this Webpage alone are against it.

I doubt any non-Japanese residents in Japan supporting LDP would even read JT or post comments here

Sorry to say this but I feel no sympathy for the protesters,Simply because Most of them were the one who voted the same LDP Despite all the scandals and corruption.

These protesters? Can't you see the flags which says Saitama Union or those wearing red vests saying Hiroshima Union in the photo? They seem all are from Unions who are the last to vote for LDP

Choking economy by simply raising rates against all these non-economical outside factors is simply stupid.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea agree to seek early resolution of wartime labor issue See in context

moonbloomToday  04:07 pm JST

The 1965 Treaty will never be agreed to because it was made with then president Park Chung-hee, who during WWII swore fealty to Emperor Hirohito with his own blood signature before serving in the Japanese Imperial Army.

Then of course after WWII Park was sent by the US to train at Fort Sill in Oklahoma before returning to South Korea and leading the illegal coup d'etat which resulted in him being installed as president.

So actually there are two major reasons why the 1965 Treaty will never be agreed to...and the third and perhaps biggest reason is the majority of the money that Japan paid to supposedly compensate the Koreans who labored for the Japanese during the war was never relayed to those people but instead was used by Park to develop South Korea, i.e. highways and bridges.

You should start from South Korea would not have been existing then.

Posted in: Japanese household assets stand at ¥2,007 tril as of June See in context

Total household assets, including cash and deposits as well as securities, were close to the record level of 2,014 trillion yen at the end of last year. Cash and deposits, which accounted for more than half of the total, increased 2.8 percent to a record 1,102 trillion yen.

Cash and deposit counts half of it, and probably mostly owned by over 60yrs old people. 50% taxable for inheritance which would fill the government debt straight. That is the point.

It's not that Japan as a tourists' destination goes away , nor that investors' destination is not such short spanned. No need to make a fuss at all

As for destination for academics, yes a few years closure means a lot. However quality of academics and the environments do matter most, which seems to be always esteemed lightly by JT community. Hence, again,

nothing to make a fuss about it. No needs at all to deal with just a boom,

Well let's see what was the nationality of the person that set fire to the clinic? Of set fire to The animation studio?

That was 24 and 36 dead.

So what was your point on Vietnamese on Vietnamese?

That is just TWO incidents regardless the number of death.

My point is clear only if you usually read Japanese news too

Posted in: 60% of people with foreign roots questioned by Japanese police: survey See in context

Some folks seems against official media reporting nationality of perpetrators like @letsberealistic who was even opposed to media reporting the eyewitness's statement, "they were arguing but not in Japanese"..

Look. Vietnamese kills Vietnamese in Japan, that cannot be denied and often happening.

If the police target their Shokumu-questioning onto Vietnamese-looking folks in the town where such crimes happened, do you even call the police racist?

o clarify, if there are many different people of different cultures there are going to be more instances of profiling than a nation with a small number. Does that help?

Unless you folks are discussing racial profiling of the police toward entire Non-Japanese-looking foreigners.

It is easier for the police to focus on targets in the country like Japan, hence, the debate goes onto Japanese vs Foreigners ... or simply defined as discrimination. Does that help?

Posted in: 60% of people with foreign roots questioned by Japanese police: survey See in context

The fact is, racial profiling works. They profile certain groups because thats where the bulk of crimes are coming from. In this case illegal aliens or those overstaying their visas.

Take a look at the state of NY or London after they dropped stop and search. Crime rates exploded.

Racial profiling works.

These folks must be thinking the police must be perfect without any useless effort...... like superman.

If illegal stayers increase, and the crime ratio by those in particular segments of all crimes is way high ( which is actually the fact) , say in Tokyo, they go for checking at a street corner, focusing on non-Japanese -looking folks.

If the cases of fake passport/visa/Zairyu-card ( provided by Chinese scums) aren't igonorable any longer, they do the same.

If actual crimes happened, and eye-witness reported " the profile", they would do the same.

Racial profiling is needed quite often

t's happened to me 4 times, once with a full search of everything I had on me including them opening up the charm my gf bought me from the Jinja. I'm white. Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it doesn't happen to white people, we are all foreigners and all subject to discrimination.

Which do you like better this by the police (only if it is discrimination) and incessant discrimination against Asians for example...
