Up to around 6,100 people would die in the event a major earthquake hits the heart of Tokyo, the metropolitan government said
I don't believe that only 6100 people would die in the case of a MAJOR EARTHQUAKE in the HEART of TOKYO.
The numbers would be X times higher, but then probably government would say it was a MEGA quake and those numbers they gave you are for a MAJOR earthquake.

Isn't it better to just rise wages instead of giving money to different groups of people? If you make more you will be able to afford price hikes.
Ohh wait I forgot money handouts just to those in need, middle class can afford price hikes.
THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO ELIMINATE MIDDLE CLASS, SOON EVERYONE WILL BE EQUALLY POOR.

I don't know, it sounds like propaganda, especially since it has been written by KYODO.
I didn't see any tourists or a few since the beginning of the virus situation, and Japan tops ?
Spain is in the EU so we don't know how many people came to visit, the borders are open.
Anyway, good luck with organized tour busses, Kyodo, Japan Inc. will need all help they can get.

Seems like Joe gave up on Taiwan the same way he did with Afganistan.
Japan should reconsider their stand towards army and US ally.

The time is coming to change the constitution and reinstate army.
Seems like US gave up on Taiwan already as it won't be included in Indo-Pacific deal.
It is about time to start thinking about your own future Japan.

The government should stop this policy as it will come to the point that Japanese will be tired of foreigners and some bad things might happen.

Of course local fishing communities are afraid as fish that consumed tritium is highly dangerous.
I don't care because I don't touch this glowing stuff from Fukushima but what I'm afraid of that the government will actually give it to the kids at school.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard hand out money to fight inflation.
New Zealand hands out extra cash to fight 'inflation storm'
But hey I don't expect much from their PM Jacinda.

Sell your YEN until you still can!
If the situation will continue and most likely it will then Japan is in big troubles.
It depends how long other countries will be willing to accept YEN for their goods rather then some other currency, but by printing money without creating any value Japan doesn't have anything to offer.
Exports are drying out as not much left being produced in Japan anymore. Resources are expensive, however this could be solved with switching to nuclear power. Japan need to turn nuclear power plants ASAP.

tritium — a byproduct of nuclear power production and a possible carcinogen at high levels.
except for tritium, but that it is safe if diluted
tritium can have a bigger impact on humans when consumed in fish than in water.
Now you understand why I never ever will eat anything from Fukushima. I won't move to that area even if they would pay me billions and give free villa to live there.
It is not safe, no matter what Mari Yamaguchi will write.

Yes printing more money to fight inflation.
So more money in the circulation and less products available that will cause products to be more expensive.
You don't have to be very smart to understand this.

Hello Work public job placement offices
It is the worse place you can be looking for a job.
I've tried it a few times when I was fresh off the boat.
The salary for the various positions was ridiculously low.
I guess no matter what the job was it was always stated like 180 000 - 250 000 cmon who can survive on that in Japan.

Participants will have to be triple-vaccinated against COVID
While I didn't even have my first shot yet.
Anyway, those conditions are too harsh, tourists won't come to a place where they have to be escorted everywhere and follow strict guidelines, and knowing the Japanese spirit it will be like a prison. Would you really enjoy going to Konbini with your tour guide?
However, I wish them luck Japan is rich so they can spend money on such things.

Even if they would pay me 20 million YEN and give FREE villa to live in. I would never ever move to that area to be exposed to possible radiation or neither eat food from there.

I'm not surprised, this food from Fukushima might still be dangerous.

A weaker yen boosts exporters' profits earned overseas when repatriated.
Let's face the truth, not much being made in Japan anymore.
It is not about soaring prices only, it is also about tourism and other industries being slaughter due to the response to virus.
The end is near, brace for impact.

Masks? What masks anyway they weren't obligatory so I didn't wear it at all but good for the government to publicly announce.

The time will come that sooner or later the government will have to pay it back and then they will freeze assets of every citizen and deduct 9.66 million yen from each account.
Sell your yen until you still can.
Buy physical gold.

It is simple China wants to squeeze the World by distributing the inflation.
Since most of the products are being made in China more lockdowns mean fewer products being available.
National Banks (FED, BOJ etc.) printed extra trillions to fight with pandemic so now citizens have a surplus of money while the amount of goods available is shrinking which is one of the reasons why US inflation is so high.
However, China overall is weaker than the US so they will fail in the long run.

The one thing in all of this makes me happy - restarting NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS.
Finally, I'm happy to hear that decision.
Now the government should put emphasise on electric or hydrogen cars and we are golden.

You guys are so easy to judge.
said her ex-boyfriend was in her apartment, and had a knife.
However, we don't know if he really had a knife or not. Probably she has a knives at her home for cooking purposes and they are full of her ex-boyfriend fingerprints.
Don't underestimate Japanese girls.
