smithinjapan, it is not convincing at all when someone is asking the world to treat Japan like trash, but at the same time that someone is living eating earning drinking and doing all his activities in Japan

Suga shall proceed with his decision and dont listen to so called "foreign" experts opinions. what can you expect from someone who dont even have basic knowledge of wearing mask during pandemic period. They cant even answer the simple question of " shall we wear mask in the public area? ". All they know is shouting freedom freedom and guess what? yeah they have the highest Covid cases in the world. Think twice before you take their advice

SK is like a child crying and seeking attention, everyday is about whining for Japan war crimes and nothing else. How many time they need Japan to apology and compensate them? never-ending grumbling

it is absolutely alright for Suga even to pay personal visit to Yasukuni shrine, it is just a respect to those who die in the war. War criminals? maybe you forget about My Lai massacre, No Gun Ri massacre, Bikini island, Hiroshima, Nagasaki etc.

@kiwi, when fact is against your understanding and knowledge, diverting attention to vocabulary shall be a good tactic? please stop and help me, grow up. For me i respect your views, i agree to disagree. Anyway man need to grow up and stop the language class or being so ego to accept other people opinions. Maybe this is what people call white ego and make me felt disgusted toward it. this is the only lesson i learn today.

The 825,000-kilowatt reactor won the approval of the Nuclear Regulation Authority in February
do you think that this authority will bow down to politicians? if you think so, you shall get access to its report and read it by yourself. don't you think that everything quoted as " i think" “i assume" is kinda of conspiracy theory with no solid prove? It is Japan we are talking about, with years of experience in disasters and management of nuclear reactors, with world top brilliant talents there, not any third-world developing countries we know. If their daily research and 9am-5pm dedicated works can be denied by " i think, i assume, i believe", then i believe there is no points we argue the issue anymore.
seriously i never read its report but i choose to trust in expertise judgement rather than conspiracy theory, that's all. If the safety level is within expertise's tolerance level, i believe they know what they are doing about.
i dont know in your perspective "hypocrite" is an insult or not, but i know in my view if somebody denied something, but at the same time using that something with no shame, then that's 100% absolute hypocrite. forgive me for not able to find another more polite words to describe it.

All factors considered; do you believe that operating a potentially damaged/weakened antiquated powerplant is worth the risk?
I personally worry that an abundance of bureaucracy, and corruption which rife in Japan, means that the trend of cutting corners and ignoring warnings will continue.
Japan needs clean AND safe power. I don’t think this plant can provide that.
first, hypocrite doesnt mean insult, it means how people act. exp : i anti-nuclear plant, but everyday i am using stable power generated by it with no shame. i anti-corruption, but everyday i am collecting bribes from people, etc.
second, go and check other nuclear power plants around the world, US or canada or anywhere, most of their power plant age 30-40 years and still functioning as normal
third, no matter how corrupted it is, you do believe Japan politicians dare to risk another nuclear plant failure? nobody dare to risk it. furthermore even if the politicians want to risk their career and re-start it anyway, he need to go through strict protocol too for nuclear plant permit. Nobody dare to risk it together with him, all along the ways he will need rubber stamps and verification from many authorities.
fourth, if you can't trust Japanese scientist and technologist with years of knowledge and experience in managing the power plant, who else you can trust? i believe they are FAR more smarter and wiser than you and me alone. They carried out more research and risk-assessment than you and me, or even than many nuclear operators in the world
fifth, everybody WANT clean AND safe power. you and me want it. we can just easily install solar panel on our rooftop. but say it to the industry people. With Japan high tech and high precision industries running, you know how much power they consumed everyday? if they shut down you know how many families will lose the incomes？please be realistic
-6 ( +2 / -8 )
all the hypocrites crying, old reactor, mad people operate the nuclear plant. IF folks all are so clever, please suggest a way to supply stable power to few million people. If you are so smart, please start everything by yourself first, please cut off your electricity supply everyday and install a solar panel at your rooftop. If you can't do it, then please admit that you are living in the dream and a typical hypocrite. REMINDER : nobody force you to use it, if you hate it, then you can always choose solar panel.

They have more capital, more resources and a LOT more people. So we end up in another pointless arms race which just impoverishes us all, and then like the USSR, its game over
oh, then what you mean is because they "LOOK" stronger, so Japan have to keep back down and keep silent?? what a joke. Mind you, the peaceful life you enjoy now doesnt fall FREE from the sky, it all comes with a price. People always think that they are "supposed" to have a peaceful life, but they never know all of it is because of the hard work and efforts of JSDF.

why so much citizen tax money needed to study this topic? no matter what rules you have, once the ship owner is American or Western company, Japan will usually back down and forget the rules. Better save the money on citizen welfare and education

i believe sky high taxes have something to do with the fertility rate. Everybody want to have a healthy and happy family with kids around, the problem is are we permitted/afford to have it ? back to the realistic ground then the issues is solved magically. Give us some space to spend our hard earned money on building our family, then many people are willing to get married and start their family

Posted in: It’s hoped that foreign students would join Japanese firms after graduation and continue living in the country. Furthermore, foreign students are, in fact, supporting Japan’s workforce as part-timers. It’s necessary for Japanese public and private sectors, and academics, to jointly develop a system to welcome foreign students as members of Japanese society.
