Posted in: Defense experts back Japan acquiring enemy base strike capability See in context

Unfortunately, is necessary to be prepared for war, for self-defense as it is absurd that a member of the UN Security Council can cowardly attack a neighbor country and neighbor countries cannot individually help as they are members of NATO (Poland wanted to allow their MIG planes to be sent to Ukraine but the US did not agree). What happened to Ukraine can happen to Taiwan, can happen to the disputed islands. It is regrettable that instead of giving steps to build a better world still under the negative effects of the pandemia that Russia chooses to make large steps, towards the past, using brute force instead of dialogue, diplomacy. It is a pity, billions of money could be used to turn the world in a better place to all mankind but it is a real threat these lunatic despotic leaders with nuclear power at the reach of their fingers and evil minds...

I am just shocked with this bird in cage. This is a very bad practice in Brazil. Who truly love birds do not put them in jail. Birds are beings born to be free, to fly, to spread their wings. Very regrettable act the imprisonment of an innocent bird. Very sorry for that, shameful.

It is time to take back the islands, Putin has no right to keep these islands. Japan is not Ukraine.

I enjoyed to watch Better than us series at Netflix, a Russian production, gave me the impression that if it was possible to make such a type of video that showed so many aspects of a daily life there they were aligned, leveraged with the world, but, unfortunately we are watching what a single crazy man can do, a bad man, with nuclear weapons at hand jeopardizing all the world, now is Ukraine, which country will be the next one to suffer this type of evil intervention causing destruction and death? Actions must be taken immediately to stop the development of a Third World War. Peace must be proactively pursued by all, everyone, each organization, each country.

It is so sad that rich, powerful countries leaders insist in creating, agravating problems that demand time, money, resources that could be wisely used to make the whole world a better place to live, not to die for so small ambitions.

Numbers don't lie, but liers produce numbers. Total of covid-19 cases and deaths are a great mistery, despite the richness of the country it took too long to start vaccination and was a shame the way they handled the first cases in the Yokohama cruise ship, allowing people to get out the boat due to their relationships...

Nothing worst than being bothered by people only interested to show off about themselves, they are not looking for anything else than their own vanity, selfishness. They can enter, eat and after this can humbly ask if they can make a short photo or video, causing no major disturbance. Fed up of noisy YouTubers

Just came back from Fujiyoshida region, lots of things made as gifts resembling Mount Fuji, a giant mountain, iconic symbol of Japan. It is an imponent vulcan, incredible presence. Tip, if you go by train or bus stay in Kawaguchiko station, as many sightseeing buses start there their routes, Red, Green and Blue Lines.

Frankly speaking is really sad to see so many elderly people working instead of enjoying their retirement in parks, traveling or even engaging in social work as volunteers. The truth is that they need to work to get extra money as pension may not cover their needs.

Posted in: Putin calls absence of Russia-Japan peace treaty 'nonsense' See in context

Thinking out of the box. To ensure peace and to end endless discussions, all territories in dispute worldwide should automatically become UN United Nations property, so, ALL members would have the privilege to live there, peacefully, deadly weapons forbidden there. Such a shame to fight for land that belongs to the entire mankind. The world will become a better place to live if there are no boundaries, no more frontiers.

Would Japanese government humbly accept vaccines from China? Due to the lack of vaccines over 10,000 people have died so far, millions got infected, lack of vaccines is strongly affecting the revenues of businesses and mental health of everybody. Prejudice against China should be put aside and consider their vaccines.

Japan is very short of workers, several companies work 7x24 and demand daily overtime from workers, up to 45 hours a month. Before the pandemic some business had 160 vacancies for every 100 candidates. So foreigners should be welcome.

Can Japan and China innovate and change this bad old behavior of fighting and make a historical act by making an agreement to share these islands? Grown up minds, great leaders build peace, learn to leave the past in the past and write a new history of cooperation, aiming the future of mankind.

It would be wonderful if a consensus could be built with the Japanese government, car makers and Uber like companies to make these marvelous self driven cars available to everyone. It would reduce the cars on the streets and the need to own a car, a high tech one.

Posted in: Japan's middle class slowly sinking into poverty See in context

Poverty concept in Japan has to be clearly defined. To be poor in underdeveloped countries means that someone has not income enough to eat three meals a day, no money to own a car or own a house or pay a rent of a decent house, no resources to purchase clothes, no medical insurance, no way to go to dentist. Over 90% of houses in Japan have air conditioning, this is considered luxury in real poor countries.

Frankly cannot understand why these men do not work as there are many job offers at bentoyas from 950 yen an hour, 5 days a week, 40 hours a week, plus 45 extra hours (zangyo) Bentoyas accept people over 50 years old. Hard work, honest work.
