I dont want foreign boots on japanese soil. Go back home and do stunts there above your own country.

No, no, no, you got it all wrong. Repeat after me: Japan's best friend and protector, America is here to save Japan from China, North Korea and Russia for a mere $ 2 bn a year. Arigato.

They don't even let them finish the song. Like, what does it matter? Half a song is as good as a full song.

This Kohaku is not a competition at all. No drama, no suspense, no reason for watching.

Going to really miss eating fish hope they reconsider their actions. Nothing wrong about this statement.

They'll feed that fishmeal to cows and chickens, so expect tritium in your milk, eggs and steak too.

The money is handed out at Kasumigaseki and Japan is very much a face-to-face society. No joy for Kochi and Okinawa.

He finished it off by wishng them "great new achievements, both in sports and in life, bright triumphs for the glory of our beloved Motherland."

Americans often say "I am a patriot". in Russian "I am a patriot" sounds pretentious and over the board, something likely to come out of a drunk skinhead's mouth. On the other hand, "I love my motherland" sounds totally neutral and everyday - everyone has a motherland (because they were born somewhere) and it's only natural to love that place. It's just language, not necessarily militarism and nationalism. Wink. (Today was my last day at my job. I am celebrating it with beers.)

The Russians stole Sakhalin from the Ainu, Oroks, Nivkhs, Uilktas, Evenkis, etc. They have yet to be liberated.

While you're at it, please also liberate Alaska, Hawaii and mainland US native populations.

Posted in: Suga declares state of emergency lasting through Olympics See in context

no events later than 9:00 in Tokyo

I wonder what's the reasoning behind this because if anything, the trains and streets after 9:00 are much less crowded than before 9:00 and so getting to events is would be much safer.

Posted in: Japan speeds up COVID vaccine rollout for elderly See in context

You'd think 9 million is a lot, then it's for two weeks. Which means a little over 600,000 per day. Only double the current speed.

https://vdata.nikkei.com/newsgraphics/coronavirus-japan-vaccine-status/

Here, it says only 330,000 elderly people have been vaccinated so far. In the whole of Japan. Plus about 3 million healthcare workers, but they started to vaccinate healthcare workers in February, so it can't be 300,000 per day either.
