Posted in: M6.7 quake strikes off northeast Japan; at least 26 injured See in context

Fishermen should take their boats out to sea;they can ride over any incoming waves.

However, what is remarkable is that there are never any warnings of a quake preceding it.

The meteorologists can’t say with accuracy what the size of the tsunami wave will be-the ‘meter wave’ was only 10 cms in this case.

There is only one sure thing.

There will be plenty more earthquakes to come.

Plenty of dating apps out there to find a partner but unless there is financial ability to take care of a family then marriage is a daunting prospect.

Unless Presiding Judge Moriharu Kurasawa is omniscient, in which case he would be a god and not a judge then he has no business being in the prediction business.

The posters above me have nailed it completely! The pressures on this woman, a 23 year old,would be almost insurmountable in her mind.

The confusion, the shock, the repercussions, the family criticism, societal criticism etc would most likely be terrifying for her to come to terms with.

This young lady should not be punished. She should be helped and given reassurance that she will be added.

Any establishment offering sexual services does so to a mainly Japanese clientele.

The only thing that will increase in Tokyo during the Olympics will be the ‘no foreigner’ signs and the odd foreigner here and there committing some faux pas like not carrying a passport at all times.

Posted in: Reverence for tradition threatens same-sex marriage in Japan See in context

Making rights for homosexuals is fine but not at the expense of children born to a married couple.Of course, an adopted child of gay couple should be treated equally.

However, allocating resources to promulgate our species must be the paramount priority.

Oh really?

“The Yemen conflict” ?

No, it is not!

It is a massacre and a genocide!

The number of deaths in Yemen currently stands at around 70,000-the number is likely to be much higher than that.

Yemeni ports have been under blockade preventing medical supplies and food from reaching the thousands and thousands injured by deadly bombings and shelling.

The truth is that their is a concerted effort to wipe a whole people out.

Anyone wishing to support Hong Kong can do so by boycotting Chinese goods-easy to end send a message.

When container ships are full to capacity entering the US and empty going back, then obviously Chinese goods are in demand due to their low price.

Tariffs are the way to go!

Posted in: Abe denounces attacks on tankers near Strait of Hormuz See in context

The crew of the ship witnessed missiles striking their ship which conflicts with the mass media narrative.

The owner of the ship Kokuka Courageous is on record as stating that the damage was well above the ship’s waterline

More information needs to come from the crew to set the record straight.

Posted in: G20 to tackle ocean plastic waste as petrochemical producers expand in Asia See in context

I’d like to think that the Japanese care about the environment but is it really the case?

Other Asian countries aren’t taking Japanese plastic for recycling anymore so suddenly here is a new policy about to be enacted.

Still, this coming summer there will be tons of plastic dumped on beaches along with tables,chairs, barbecue sets etc.

Posted in: Japan grapples with traffic jams, visitors' manners amid tourism boom See in context

If the article is examined for positive points then none can be gleaned!

Why not?

That is kind of anomalous isn’t it?

Inbound foreign tourism is boosting profits of many companies from dried milk producers to hotels to transport companies etc

I personally know companies both foreign companies both foreign and Japanese owned making big money from tourism.

So, where in the article is the ‘thanks’ that should be extended to the waves of tourists?

It isn’t there.

Posted in: 2 tankers with Japan-related cargo attacked in Strait of Hormuz as Abe visits Iran See in context

Why would Iran seek to embarrass Abe’s visit by attacking Japanese owned tankers?

It does not make any sense at all.

This attack seems extremely suspect
