Yeah, how can you run an article on Princess Kako without a (her) picture?

In fact, if it really is an American girl, the Yasukuni souls will really be outraged.

Japanese always claiming the US provoked the war. Despicable. They INVADED other countries, so of course, the US put sanctions on Japan. And they always twist the truth to make themselves the victim. Good God.

Unfortunately, the Emperor's words always go over Japanese people's heads. He or his father, never (have the guts to) drive the point home, so the people remain clueless.

@oldman

Japan's apologies ALWAYS came late. DECADES after the war. Hence, no sincerity ever felt. That Treaty with SK and compensation happened in 1965? That's two decades later already. It's always like pulling teeth to get Japan to admit anything.

It's like if the current Germans honored Hitler. But the Japanese do it blatantly.

Historically, I should say. Meaning, I haven't noticed a big change over the years in either parts of the world

Not sure I totally buy the diet change thing. Asian American women, while surrounded by western diet, don't seem to be all that different in shape from their old country counterparts. Not scientific, just from my keen observations.

@starpunk

Yes, I am sure. I heard the lecture by the retired professor of Kyoto University. He gave the name and picture in the lecture. It is on youtube.

↓Here, it was probably this one. It's towards the end, but it's so long I can't find it right now.

Now, I don't really know the history of Koreans in Japan, but I have asked a Japanese this one time. She told me that they were brought to Japan as slaves, or at least forced labor, so I will go with that.

The Koreans that suffered the atomic bombing were excluded from getting hibakusha-techo and were excluded from getting any treatment. And the Japanese 'pray for world peace'??? wth

This was mentioned by a retired nuclear power professor of Kyoto University in his lecture. It can be found on youtube.

OK, a little too much to read but, did you know that Japan, was also trying to develop the atomic bomb?? They had scientists working on it, even know the name. Basically the world was trying to see who will get there first. Japan, would have used the bomb on the US or wherever had they been the first to develop it. And you know they would have had no reservation whatsoever in using it.

Some Japanese elderlies knows and remembers what their country did. But they are the silent minority.

There is a monument to the Korean victims of the atomic bomb attack within the park grounds. In addition, inside the museum, there is a section of the museum that references Japanese campaigns abroad, including the Nanjing Massacre

Hold on a minute! That Korean monument came way afterwards. Japanese originally excluded the Koreans, who also wanted a memorial on the grounds. They had to have theirs outside the park. Japanese did not allow them inside the park!

I distinctly remember watching a documentary on Japanese TV, may have been in the 80s or 90s, where the Koreans were campaigning to get their memorial inside the park. Japanese must've finally gave in reluctantly. That's the real Japanese.

Also, there was a big riot at the memorial when one time, Nanjing Massacre photos were displayed. Japanese protested for them to be taken down. That was on TV, too. If there's a section for it right now, it must be tiny. Because when my Indonesian friend visited the memorial a few years ago, he was appalled at how one-sided the whole memorial was.

Now get this. When I told that to an elderly Japanese friend of mine, he was so apologetic, and asked me to relay his apologies to my Indonesian friend, on behalf of the Japanese people, he said.

Posted in: Chinese filmmaker shines spotlight on Japan's wartime sexual violence See in context

Yes. What the Japanese committed were atrocities. It was on another level. But to the Japanese, they were their grandparents and great grandparents. They just can't bear to think that their family committed these crimes against humanity and that are their descendants. So they just keep on denying. It's their coping mechanism.

Posted in: Doctors in U.S. say insurers increasingly interfere over patient care See in context

The article isn't telling the whole story. It seems to be talking only about HMO insurance, not PPO, and so are some of the comments here about their experiences.

For those that don't know, HMO is the cheaper insurance, which requires the approvals by the insurer that the article talks about. It also limits you as to which provider you can go to.

PPO on the other hand, while more expensive, gives you freedom to go to any provider in the country, any specialty you want, any time you want, no approvals are necessary. The never meddle in the care you receive.

If you work for a decent employer, the cost isn't that much. I've compared mine to a Japanese friend of mine, who worked at a top tier company in Japan, and he was surprised at the low cost I was paying.
