Posted in: China orders 2 men detained for posing in Japanese army uniforms See in context

Why was there "online outrage"?

How did their act of dressing up in WWII IJA uniforms "challenge the dignity of the nation and its people,"?

Ossan, dont play dumb, you are way smarter than that. This is on par with some idiots dressing in Nazi uniforms and posing in front of eg. Auschwitz concentration think Germany wouldnt react the same?

Anyway , those 2 really must have rocks in their heads.

Posted in: LDP approves antismoking plan with many loopholes See in context

I really , really hope this gem gets picked up and run hard with by major foreign media before and during the Olympics because only the loss of face and embarrasement on a worl stage ( where Japan forever wants to play in the pit with the "advanced / developed " nations ) will force Shinzo to pull his underlings in line and introduce anything resembling a proper smoking ban instead of this ridiculous farce.

Call it what it is - a tobacco smoking ban rollback bill.

Pathetic, corrupt LDP dinosaurs.

Posted in: No. of foreign visitors hits record for Jan, but growth rate slows See in context

Out of interest, do other countries estimate and announce visitor numbers every single month?

Not sure about every country , but not where I come from.

Since increased tourism is the one of the very few highly visible success stories of Abenomics expect to continue being inundated with stories about record numbers for the forseeable future.

This moment capturing their friendship and respect for each other is what not just the Olympic but the human spirit is all about. It is beyond politics, screw the oyajis on all sides who are forever trying to create trouble for their own political ends.

Abe govt, just HAS to slide in a reference to NK nuclear threat in there somewhere, about Japan,s own domestically created nuclear security incompetent management and corner cutting of safety regulations and inspections. ....Oh I forgot , that is all "under control" as Shinzo declared when trying to win the Olympics.

Cool Japan Fund - the poster boy of amakudari scourge. Not suprising to hear the oyaji sleezebags engaging in this kind of behaviour. Hope they get a good expose in the media and good luck with her lawsuit....she will need it . TIJ

Only on this piece of "unique" rock will legislators/bureaucrats come up with such ridiculous proposals.Pachinko, horse races, bitcoin...its all cool but yeah lets pretend we have a workable solution in trying to big brother babysit anyone who wants to go to a big bad casino with IC imbeded My Number cards. Did these guys just finish reading Orwell or something? Then again these are the same geniuses that were proposing for people to use their My Number cards every time they go shopping, swipe it at a terminal and get a 4000 yen max refund for consumption tax at the end of tax year. Honestly which airheads come up with this kind of stuff ?

This is the kind of education one would expect in countries ruled by an autocrat, the kind of education that would be imposed by a Ministry of Propaganda.

Watanabe says that even while she gave her statement, there were some lawmakers in the chamber who dozed or engaged in idle chat. "If you're a temp, you get fired (if you do that). I was disgusted," she recalled.

Yes, the quality of J-politicians on full display. Yet come next election, the sheeple will vote for these exact same useless characters. Frustrating to say the least. TIJ.

Oh...bugger off Suga...maybe if you closed that silly museum ( another waste of our tax money ) or at least pretend you might look into it you might have had some moral high ground on this. Yes, its all so " unacceptable and regrettable to read about this after yesterday reading the headline about Abe planning to ask Moon for " co operation " in the event of contingency on the Korean peninsula and today planning to ask SK to not scale down their war exercises with the US just so that Abe can appear as the tough guy to his domestic voters.

Posted in: Logan Paul dealing with fallout from controversial blog post See in context

Logan Paul describes himself as a "good guy who made a bad decision"

More accurate description would be an insensitive, up himself jerk , who granted made a lot of money through his dumb videos ( just checked out some of the stuff he did to random people in Japan and it more than shows him for the twit he is, and its the first and last time I,ll ever look at his channel ). That he has so many followers is a sad reflection on what passes as "entertainment " these days.

Posted in: 2020 Tokyo Olympic costs keep rising See in context

can anyone see how hosting the olympics boosts your economy? You get millions of visitors over a two week period, hotels, restaurants, taxes get a boon. What else? I think its a minus overall considering the costs

But its a plus for all the construction companies full of "advisors" and board members who are ex govt / LDP amakudari cronies as well as a myriad of organizations and "bodies " stacked full of the same characters involved in " organizing " and " running " the games.Thats what its all about and all that matters.  Always has been. Everything else around it is just a PR fluff.

J -taxpayer , please bend over deeper and remember for you its all about gaman, please support us in raising your taxes next year in order to support our and our cronies pork barrel money flow and if it all gets to you at sone point...just take a deep breath, exhale and repeat " shooganai" a few times. Then get back to your overtime tasks.

Sincerely ...your friendly local LDP chapter!

P.S. remember to vote for us again next time... only Shinzo and LDP can keep you safe from NK missiles and any other " threat" that will undoubtedly surface again just in time for the next election .

Banzai for the Olympics ...time to hit the Ginza clubs now.

Hope someone points this out to shame the LDP oyajis who just watered down the anti smoking laws here much for Japanese superiority in Asia...even Thailand is more advanced and forward looking on this issue than the LDP dinosaurs. Then again with the J Tobacco brown envelopes in their pockets they will swallow their pride and take the dough huh...

If ever there was a day for the J-

police top brass to be seen as pro active and issue a directive to send out as many undercover female cops to nab the chikan pervs red handed this is it. Would do wonders for improving the keystones public image.

Not holding my breath though.
