I don't understand the reason why he's considered for a Nobel every year. Yes, he writes popular books, and he is a clever, interesting man. But his work is faaaar from being Nobel worthy.

So true mu-da. What about a 4% tax for basic stuff like food? Poorest people can't afford a car anyway, but they would benefit from tax reliefs in food, city taxes, or even public transportation. But the government is more interested on tax breaks for big automakers, because that's were friends are isn't it?
I can't believe Japanese keep voting them.

I just cannot understand why Japanese people keeps voting for a government that says there's no money for education, kids or health expenses, yet they want to spend ¥5.3 trillion on weaponry.

So all this fuss about casinos and the money is going to go to some billionaire somewhere. Osaka people will just get the 900/hour salaries for the staff.

Sure, these beach tents are comfortable, they protect you from the sun and the wind. But it irks me a bit that Japanese use them more like a privacy booth than anything, so they don't need to even make eye contact with other people while at the beach..

Sure, you could play the olympics at night time and still would be to much hot for sports. But daylight saving time should come and stay, there is no reason at all to have sunrise at 4am right now, and having the sunset around 8-9pm does feel great.

I don't use a smartphone right now, but if I wanted one I'd rather save and buy a new one myself, rather than getting into that kind of contract with J-operators.

Nonsense, with all the problems that Japan's officials should be working to solve, they spend time their time worrying about this??

Excellent news! These Resorts will be a very big boost to the economy, while protecting Japanese people from any negative impacts. I expect resrautants, bars, Circus and concerts will be exciting attractions in the Resorts. Well done for realizing this, PM Abe, and Cabinet.
BS, it will only boost the economy of the already rich owners. The rest of the workers will earn the same low salary they'd get working for a konbini anyway.

How do you declare that extra income? Do people declare it? I can imagine tax would cut that profit a lot.
Do you need to set up a company? Anywhere to find info about it?

What a terrible crime. As usual, the TV will focus and give all the details about what happened, but will not try to explain why such things happen in Japan.

So xenophobic. You can come to work with minimum wage and near slavery conditions. And you must talk Japanese first. Don't bring your family. You must leave after 5 years, and please don't make any ties to Japan.
due to concerns that an influx of immigrants could lead to a rise in crime.
Of course, dangerous foreigners!

the real reason is that culturally speaking, people should be at home in bed and not out partying! Hurts the work production!

Abe wants to be on charge for the Olympics, so badly. He will not resign, he will blame everyone else.
LPD wants to perpetuate itself, the same families have had the power in Japan for the last 100 years! It amazes me that no Japanese cares about this. They even sympathetically agree to have the son of the previous leader following his steps.

I can’t help thinking there was too much quick money to be made by government fat cats with ties to construction companies by simply building a giant sea wall. Doing it like this needs the communities input and approval first.

I don't think 80.000 Yen is that much expensive, compared with other expenses that school kids have in Japan, let alone a Ginza private school fees. This issue is just a mix of elitism, media garbage and a high ratio of unstable crazy people, and Japan excels at these.
