Then why are his approval ratings so low?

I believe that the results of approval rating questionnaires do not necessarily coincide with the evaluation of the administration.

In fact, the results of individual detailed questionnaires, such as the one on the government's response to Corona, are not that serious.

In the case of the administration's evaluation, I believe that the overall evaluation, which is a compilation of detailed questionnaires, is closer.

I believe that the question of whether one supports the administration tends to be more myopic than the question of how one evaluates the administration.

It's just that the leftists and the media are giving him a bad rap, but most Japanese people appreciate the fact that Mr. Suga served as prime minister during a difficult time. The Suga administration has lowered cell phone rates, secured enough vaccines, and held the Olympics.

Personally, I think Suga did a good job. He was not at fault, and the Olympics went off without a hitch. Corona is not something the government can control, so I don't blame him, and I appreciate the fact that he is making sure there is enough vaccine available.

I do not welcome Kishida's accommodating attitude toward China and South Korea. Ishiba is out of the question. My personal preference would be for Kono to become prime minister.

Since the Fukushima disaster, Japan has set a standard for radioactive materials in food that is 10 times stricter than the world standard.

South Korea, on the other hand, has been pouring more cups of radioactive water into its rivers than Japan, complaining about Japan, and leaving its own standards for radioactive materials in its food unchecked. Of course, their standards are less stringent than Japan's.

In the first place, Korea is not strict about radiation, but when it comes to Japan, they suddenly raise their voice!

As I have said many times, the radiation detectors used by the Koreans are inexpensive and only measure the amount of radiation in the air.

Those measurements are completely meaningless. Even if they are meaningful, it is just a performance to show that they are measuring.

In order to detect radioactive materials in food, it is necessary to collect samples.

As I have said many times before, the equipment used by South Korea cannot measure the amount of radiation in food. It is completely meaningless. It is nothing more than a political performance.

Koreans think that Korea is handling the situation perfectly. That's what the Korean media is reporting.

They believe that they are eating one type of lunch box that is almost the same for every meal.

If they were handing out a wide variety of lunch boxes, Koreans would be trying to show off the variety. However, no such images have emerged. In other words, they are only handing out that one type of lunch.

It is impossible for them to keep eating such food every day, but Koreans believe everything they hear from the media.

This is a confirmed political harassment by South Korea.

If they really think they are in danger, why are they given two lunches a day? Why don't they give them three meals a day? If they really think it's dangerous, why don't they announce that the daily tests show dangerous results?

As for that lunch box, I've only seen a picture of the top right side dish that has been slightly replaced. Do you think you can spend days on end eating those same old lunch boxes for three meals a day? More to the point, the Korean committee members actually only gave the athletes two meals a day. Everything is half-baked because the goal is to harass them from the beginning.

Damage claims by Koreans regarding Gunkanjima are 200% false.

The structure of the buildings in the living quarters is a complete apartment complex with balconies and windows, and is not designed to house prisoners. The number of people who can live there in that condition is about 3,000. There are also no structures like underground camps on the island.

And all of the residents who actually lived on Gunkanjima have testified that they do not know the names of the Koreans who are claiming damage. The residents possess a list of residents and a list of school alumni.

His job at the time was to make these goals a reality. There was nothing wrong with that.

The number of infected people in Japan remains extremely low compared to Europe and the United States, and the number of vaccinations has been steadily increasing. At least, the actual situation is not pessimistic.

This change is necessary for Japan to be able to respond smoothly to various crisis situations. It is necessary not only for natural disasters but also to protect the people and foreign residents when they are attacked by China, for example. In the first place, the fact that the Constitution does not include an emergency clause is an anomaly in the world. Those who shout that the emergency clause is dangerous need to get rid of the emergency clause in their own countries.

The Korean is also giving false testimony in this article.

( http://english.hani.co.kr/arti/society/society_general/747613.html )

The part of his testimony that seems to be true

In 1940, his father was working at the Yawata Works.

in 1942, his mother joined his father with their four children.

he was born in 1943.

He says that his mother found his father, but that's a lie. It is too strange for a mother to take her four children on a journey to look for a father whose whereabouts she does not know.

It is also a lie that his father was treated badly. If his mother had come to look for him herself, would the Japanese who did the horrible things he described guide them? Furthermore, who would pay for the living expenses of a family of six? Is it the Japanese who would do the terrible things he says?

This alone is enough to show that it is a complete lie.

By the way, the requisition order was issued in 1944, so it is obvious that his father was not forced to work in 1940, but came to work on his own.

What's more, I'm sure a Japanese midwife assisted in the birth of his baby and took care of the food for his four children.

In the first place, the Korean complainants are a bunch of fraudsters, just like the comfort women.

The Koreans are unable to provide any evidence that they were subject to recruitment, and their claims are based on their own delusions. Since Japan has a list of conscripts, if Koreans submit their names at the time (their Japanese names at the time of their service), the Japanese side can confirm whether they are the conscripts or not, but Koreans do not want to submit the relevant documents, nor do they disclose their memory-based names.

Similarly, a Korean who testified that he was conscripted on Gunkanjima was asked by a Japanese of the same age to provide his name at the time so that he could be checked against his own school register, but the Korean refused. There were only a few children in the same grade on Gunkanjima at that time, and it would be easy to confirm if we knew their names.

Even Koreans living in Japan who spent time with them at the time pointed out that their claims were full of lies.( https://youtu.be/-HPw5tPYjQA )

And what about promoting solar while you're at it?

There are many solar power projects that have been confirmed to have Chinese and Korean intervention. It is installed by purchasing cheap land in mountainous areas and cutting down forests. Every time a typhoon passes through the area, they are blown away, causing more damage from landslides and other problems.

@quercetum

What kind of discriminatory damage did Korea actually suffer from the Japanese during World War II?

Here is an example of how Koreans are being brainwashed.

There is a movie called "Spring on the Peninsula" made in 1941. ( https://youtu.be/T0MiZnCvb7s )

The director of the film is Korean. The owner of the production company is also Korean.

He went to an English language school in Japan.

During his studies, he founded a company called Korea Records.

After graduating from the college, the filmmaker learned the art of cinematography from a Japanese named Yutaka Abe at a Japanese film production company called Nikkatsu.

He then returned to the Korean peninsula and established the Myeongpo Film Company.

He filmed and released "Spring on the Peninsula".

The above is a complete fact that exists with the film.

By the way, how was the above life possible in the terrible society that Koreans claim to have? It is very strange. The equipment for filming would have been very expensive. It seems that he was a man who turned his hobby into a job, but at that time, in 1937, many young Japanese were being sent to war with China and losing their lives. Were the Koreans really treated badly? It seems that Koreans had the freedom to start their own businesses. And this director was educated in English by the Japanese and taught film making skills by the Japanese, right? Why are there facts here that are completely different from the history claimed by the Koreans?

Japan and its people were never sufficiently punished for the crimes against humanity

What do you mean by inhumane crimes committed by Japan? At least we are aware that there are no acts that target only Koreans.

The comfort women include Japanese. The only difference is that it was a legitimate private business and the business was with the military.

The conscripted workers also include Japanese. In addition, most of the conscripts were Koreans who were already working in the area, and many more Japanese were conscripted many years before Koreans.

There is also no record of the Japanese government conducting any exclusionary activities targeting Koreans.

Many of the claims made by the Koreans are based on stories that they have conveniently created, claims that do not match the facts, or claims that replace discrimination with economic disparity that has not been filled since they were incorporated into Japan.

So, Koreans will not be able to answer the facts as stated in my first comment.

It is already well known that ALPS doesn't work well and so called "treated" contaminated water still contains heavy radioactive elements.

Japan's treated water has been subjected to ALPS treatment twice to meet WHO standards (drinking water standards), which are stricter than IAEA standards. In short, there is no difference from water that exists in nature.

A few years ago, the Japanese press corps received a sample of the treated water by hand.

Posted in: Seoul court rejects wartime sex slaves' suit against Japan See in context

Early in May of 1942 Japanese agents arrived in Korea for the purpose of enlisting Korean girls for "comfort service" in newly conquered Japanese territories in Southeast Asia. The nature of this "service" was not specified but it was assumed to be work connected with visiting the wounded in hospitals, rolling bandages, and generally making the soldiers happy.

I think the quote is too partial. It also reads that the report author is ignorant about the word comfort women.

Even today, when recruiting prostitutes, they are not recruited under the profession of prostitute. It is not the same as it actually is, but to make it a little easier to understand in English, for example, it is replaced by words such as delivery health worker. And, most of the general public at least knows what it is.

The same goes for the word "comfort women". In 1942, the word "comfort women" had already been used in newspaper advertisements for more than five years, and there was an unspoken understanding of what the job entailed.

Of course, it says that the girls were ignorant, so it is possible that they did not know about it. On the other hand, it also says that the girls were selfish and had twisted personalities, so they could be lying. The more tragic the position, the more sympathetic these women will be.

Also, due to reports of interrogations of prostitutes and civilians, it is questionable whether "Japanese agents arrived in Korea" is factual or not.

In addition, the overall content of the report is conclusive that these women were mere prostitutes.

Posted in: Seoul court rejects wartime sex slaves' suit against Japan See in context

In the first place, it is not true that Korea is the victim. It is no exaggeration to say that all of the claims made by Koreans are lies.

The draft, conscription, and comfort women were all targeted at the Japanese first. Especially in the case of conscription and recruitment, Koreans were only subjected to them for about a year before the end of the war. If we exclude the preparation period, the period was less than half a year.

In 1937, while many young Japanese were dying in the war with China, Koreans were establishing newspapers, film companies, trading companies, record companies, cosmetics companies, and many other companies. This is not surprising, since the percentage of Japanese who occupied the Korean Peninsula was only about 10% at the time.

There is a movie called Spring on the Peninsula (1941). It is not necessary to know the contents of the film, but the fact that the company that shot the film was headed by a Korean shows that many of the claims made by Koreans are false. If you know the background of the cinematographer, you will be even more convinced that the Koreans are lying. He learned filming techniques at a Japanese film company, acquired expensive filming equipment, set up his own filming company, hired actors, and shot this film. Where is the Nazi-like Empire of Japan that the Koreans criticize?

One more word.

Drinking water is not the same as drinkable water.

For example, distilled water does not taste good and does not contain the minerals necessary for agriculture.

Japan also has the right to choose water that is suitable for drinking and agricultural use, and to choose water that makes a good impression.

If you say otherwise, then that is exactly what South Korea should do if it uses its own treated water for drinking and agricultural purposes.
