I wonder if those commenting that the prefectural governor is right are reading the article correctly?

The problem in this case is that the prefectural governor is the only one who has single-handedly put a stop to the project, despite the fact that JR, as well as the national government and the smaller municipalities included in Shizuoka Prefecture, want construction to begin as soon as possible.

Because of this one prefectural governor, JR, the national government, and all the other prefectures and municipal districts where the Linear Linear line is scheduled to open are all inconvenienced.

In addition to this case, the Korean government has seized Buddhist statues stolen from Japan by Korean thieves, but Korea has not returned them to Japan. Thus, South Korea is a country that has a flagrant disregard for international treaties. It is only slightly better than China.

The issue in this case is simply this: China, South Korea, and North Korea.

And if Japan allows dual citizenship for any one country on a reciprocal basis, people from that particular country, or those who support that country, will now start saying, "It is discriminatory to not allow only China (or South Korea or North Korea) to have dual citizenship.

Posted in: China declines to join IAEA system to monitor Fukushima treated water See in context

The IAEA does not just look at samples. They are also monitoring the treatment process, that is, the very mechanics of the process and equipment up to the point of discharging the water. They make sure that there are no problems, both with the sample results as well as the theory, and that there are no inconsistencies between the two. Thus, it makes no sense to delve into ideas only about the sample.

To those who fear Japan's treated water. You people shouldn't even get X-rays or CT scans at the hospital. You will be exposed to dozens of times more radiation than the Japanese treated water.

To you the 2020 report looks like 2012?

Yes. Food products from China and Korea have lower safety standards and are full of holes than those from Japan. Since the accident, Japan has further tightened its standards.

Every country drains some kind of wastewater, right? Domestic wastewater, industrial water, cooling water for nuclear power plants. And China and South Korea are draining tritiated water with much higher concentration than Japan.

If there are no other radionuclides present, articles about the wastewater should clearly and emphatically say so.

Before dilution, the only radionuclide exceeding the standard value is tritium; all others are well below the standard value. The other nuclides are all well below the standard values. Furthermore, this is diluted and discharged into the ocean. The information is available at the following url. It is possible that those below the detection limit have been completely removed, but just to be safe, calculations have been made using the detection limit.

This was not an effective way to appeal to the public, but it is better than doing nothing and, perhaps, not at all better than the Japanese opposition parties that are spreading rumors.

Although it is not wise to perform on an individual level, as it is easy to become conspicuous, there is no doubt that there is absolutely no problem with the wastewater. On the other hand, it was necessary for the government to take the initiative in emphasizing and continuously communicating the fact that there is no effect of radiation, but we have not seen any such efforts. I hope Kishida will reflect on this. Also, if the Japanese government is paying NHK a high operating cost, it should have allowed NHK to do more public relations.

Also, the greatest amount of radioactive material flowed out during the accident. Many years have already passed since that time, and if there is now a problem with the release of treated water that meets IAEA safety standards, what are those standards?

How is it that South Korea is dripping sewage that kills fish without proper treatment?


And they keep causing the same situation year after year, with no intention of improving it.

Which would you rather drink, Japanese treated water or this green water? At least Japanese treated water is confirmed to be drinkable water.

It is not Japanese nationalists but Korean nationalists who are twisting the facts?

For example, the other day, there was a news report in Japan that a Korean nationalist gave a lecture in Sado Island. They used the term "forced labor" without any evidence and appealed to Japan to "admit that they forced Koreans to work and apologize. However, the only evidence that Koreans were working on Sado Island was the tobacco ration records they were receiving from Japan at the time.

I don't think it can be said that the Koreans were forced laborers, since they were still receiving rations of cigarettes, a luxury item at the time, but they claim that the list is tantamount to a list of forced laborers.

Posted in: S Korean wartime laborers file suit against Mitsubishi Heavy See in context

Koreans who worked in Japanese mines first wanted to become miners themselves, an occupation that paid well, so they were interviewed (i.e., they went for the interview themselves) and initially lived and worked in a large room with other newcomers, moving to a private room after one or two years. He then invited his family, whom he had left behind in Korea, to come and live there as a family unit. The wives helped their husbands with cooking, laundry, etc., had children, and the children attended school. Later, as the war intensified, employment became conscripted and salaries rose further. That was the general state of Korean coal miners.

They could not successfully lie about the above details, so there are many strange parts to their testimonies.

The Korean who sued the Japanese government as the son of a miner, saying that his family was subjected to terrible things, could not lie well about the fact that his mother and children joined him later and that he was the fourth child born in the mines. There is no merit in the Japanese forcing the family to call in later, when the only decent labor was the father, and it is odd that a fourth child could be born there in terrible living conditions. Also, the fact that the family was given a room to live together as a family unit as company housing was a rather good environment.

Koreans have only recently begun to make a fuss about the Rising Sun, and many who oppose the flag ignore the fact that Koreans at the time of the war waved the Rising Sun with the Japanese and cheered the Japanese army.

Japan has long used the rising sun motif not only on its flag, but also on its medals, and many prominent Koreans have been awarded such medals by Japan.

I also think this system should be stopped, and of course there are many workplaces in Japan that are not good. However, it is not so much the working environment in Japan that causes slavery, but rather the fact that trainees are saddled with a great deal of debt by Vietnamese recruitment agencies before they come to Japan from Vietnam.

The debt is so great upon arrival in Japan that the trainees are unable to pay back the debt with their salaries, causing them to commit crimes or flee their training places to take jobs where they can make more money. Their debts would be an obstacle to them performing their jobs diligently.

South Korea's new government has no power. The seats in Congress are still dominated by leftists. There is probably not a single thing he can do on the diplomatic front. As a result, he will also be in the line of fools who only make their own demands to Japan without showing any sincerity to Japan. The only thing he can do is to pursue the left on domestic issues related to Moon Jae-in and comfort women groups.

Recently, a ministerial candidate for the incoming South Korean government apparently claimed that in order to solve this problem, companies that received money from Japan and grew should pay for it.

To be fair, the companies only received the money and delivered goods and products for it, and the SK government was fully responsible for this problem, as it used the money it received from Japan for other things. It seems likely that the new South Korean government will end up being a comedian-level government after all.

Posted in: Delegation sent by next S Korean leader in Japan for policy talks See in context

To be a little more specific, Korea has identified almost all individuals who were active during the Japanese colonial period as ethnic traitors and has eliminated them from its history.

Those who established universities and cram schools on the Korean peninsula at their own expense or with aid from the Japanese, and those who established financial and other support programs to make it easier for Koreans to study in Japan have been erased from history as ethnic traitors.

In this way, Korea teaches a history that excludes any element of Japanese tolerance toward Koreans. And they cry that Koreans were the victims of the time.

What is Korea going to demand of us after coming to Japan without having done any of our homework?

Also, Korea has so far recorded as criminals all Koreans who became Japanese and devoted their lives for the Korean peninsula during the Japanese colonial period, and has been remembering their false history to this day. Korea and Koreans should start by reflecting on this and correcting their false history.

He said he fled because he did not believe he would get a fair trial in Japan, where prosecutors have a nearly 99 percent conviction rate in cases that go to trial.

In the first place, those who have committed a crime should be arrested, and those who have not committed a crime should never be arrested. In other words, ideally, the probability of conviction should be 100%. In many countries other than Japan, the probability of conviction is over 90% as well.

The article mentions a string of incidents, but nowhere does it mention a specific time period or the number of incidents.
