Posted in: Abe nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize on U.S. request: Asahi See in context

How could Abe refuse Trump’s request? After all, Japan is a country that depends totally on US for its defense.

Posted in: Japan to recognize indigenous Ainu people for first time See in context

The LDP has been taken over by globalists like Mr. Suga. Recognizing an ethnic minority as an indigenous people could undermine the Japanese national identity and divide the nation.

Posted in: Global coal phase-out raises viability questions about Japanese plants See in context

It’s obvious that the only viable option is restarting the existing nuclear power plants. We shouldn’t waste time on such hoaxes as solar and wind powers. They won’t get anyone anywhere.

Posted in: Deer-related injuries in Nara reach record number already this year See in context

The deer may have been frightened and upset by too many tourists visiting the Nara Park.

Posted in: Foreign nursing school students to get ¥2.5 mil in scholarships See in context

There wouldn’t be a shortage in caregivers if the government gave the 2.5 million yen scholarship to young Japanese aspiring to be caregivers.

Posted in: A-bomb survivors worried about U.S. plan to withdraw from arms pact See in context

The A-bomb survivors should be worried more about North Korea’s nuclear capabilities than the US plan to pull out of the pact. It’s Kim’s missiles that are aimed at targets in Japan.

Posted in: Under-fire mayor resigns after ordering arson See in context

JJ Jetplane,

It doesn’t constitute a crime. The mayor didn’t mean it when he said to burn down the building and his subordinate knew it. Though it’s obvious he’s not fit to hold public office.

Posted in: U.S. approves sale of 2 Aegis Ashore systems to Japan for $2.15 bil See in context

Will the US made missile system be able to protect Japan from North Korean nuclear missiles? Probably not. Thanks to the inept Prime Minister, Japan is being forced to buy exorbitantly priced US weapons just to please Trump.

Posted in: Aso pledges to keep economy strong as tax hike looms See in context

The government doesn’t have to implement all those new measures to boost the economy. Just scrap the planned consumption tax hike.

Posted in: French Olympic probe raises questions about Dentsu See in context

The “best prepared games in memory” ? That’s IOC speak for hosting the Olympics in the middle of heatstroke inducing Japanese summer.

Posted in: Female imperial family members to be barred from key succession rite See in context

I see nothing wrong with the Imperial family having the male only ascension ceremony. It’s part of the centuries old imperial tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation of emperors and shouldn’t be judged by today’s values.

Posted in: Lavrov asks why Japan only country in world that can't accept results of World War II See in context

Lavrov’s remarks seem to contradict Putin’s. Is there some kind of power struggle going on in Kremlin or is this a pre-summit meeting bluff from Russia ?

Mind your own business, Trudeau.

Posted in: Abe orders steps against S Korean seizure of Nippon Steel assets See in context

If South Korea actually seizes Japanese assets, the most effective countermeasure would be to seize SK assets in Japan for retaliation.

Posted in: Japanese lawmaker under fire for LGBT comment See in context

That’s true. If everyone became LGBT, then a nation would collapse. What’s wrong with saying the truth?

Posted in: Car attacker says he kept foot on gas pedal while hitting crowd See in context

Even if you were sentenced to life in prison, you would be able to get out after serving ten or so years if you were a model prisoner. Incidentally, Japan does not have “life“ imprisonment as they have in the US and other countries. Here convicts are sentenced to imprisonment for indefinite period of time,

Posted in: Trans-Pacific trade pact takes effect without U.S. amid protectionism See in context

As a treaty, the TPP supersedes the domestic laws of each member country. That means once a pro-business legislation is passed, people cannot change it by voting against it. The TPP is undemocratic and designed to enhance corporate interests at the expense of ordinary people.

Posted in: Yasukuni protesters from Hong Kong to face trespassing charges See in context


Visitors are allowed into the shrine premises to pay respects to the war-dead, not protesting the enshrinement wartime military leaders. And refusing to leave private property also constitutes trespassing.

Posted in: More than 186,000 apply to be Tokyo 2020 volunteers; 37% non-Japanese See in context

It’s amazing to know that there are more than 186,000 people in Japan who have nothing better to do with their time.

Posted in: Dual nationals feel cast adrift in Japan See in context

Ms Shiraishi could have retained her Japanese passport by giving up her Swiss one if she loved the country of her birth so much.

Posted in: Gatekeeper at Japan's 'Suicide Forest' hopes music can save lives See in context

I hope blasting rock ‘n’ roll into the forest at night won’t have a bad effect on animals living there.

Posted in: S Korean destroyer directs fire-control radar at MSDF plane See in context

You cannot direct targeting radar on an airplane by mistake. It was obviously a deliberate act of the Korean destroyer. It seems like the whole nation of South Korea has gone berserk in recent years. The worst part of it is that the South Koreans are living in fantasy land and that they don’t know that their country is rapidly becoming irrelevant in the international community.

Posted in: Putin says U.S. presence in Japan complicates signing of peace treaty See in context

Putin’s concern is quite understandable. Japan has no say over where US builds military bases and USAF still controls its airspace. Hardly an independent country.

Posted in: Experts question Tokyo medical school's reasoning behind gender bias See in context

The true reason behind the discriminatory practice is that female medical school graduates are more likely to become ophthalmologists or ENT doctors rather than surgeons. If admission were to be solely based on entrance exam scores, there would be an acute shortage of surgeons.

Posted in: 9 more med schools involved in misconduct after another admits exam rigging See in context

Forget medical school if you are a female applicant who have failed past exams a couple of times and neither of your parents is a med school graduate.

Posted in: Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers See in context

Unlike factory workers who often engage in simple routine work, care givers need much better language skills to communicate with and understand the needs and feelings of elderly people. It’s a bad idea to bring in foreign workers just to fill the manpower shortage. Raise the wages of care workers and thousands of licensed Japanese care givers would the workforce.

Posted in: Foreign Ministry official reprimanded for drunken violence See in context

A disgrace to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. And this guy was a former Japanese ambassador to Congo. Think what could have happened if he had done his misconduct in another country. The Foreign Ministry should fire him immediately with no severance pay.

Posted in: Survivors gather at Pearl Harbor for attack remembrance See in context

One thing you must remember when you remember Pearl Harbor is that Pearl Harbor was a military base. At that time tensions between Japan and America were very, very high. In times of tension, a military base must be ready for an attack whether a war is declared or not. A large part of the blame for what happened at Pearl Harbor must lie with US military leaders who failed to put Pearl Harbor on high alert.

Posted in: High school teacher disciplined over sexual harassment after serving alcohol to girl See in context

Voluntarily resigned. That means the teacher received a full severance package.

Posted in: Mother gets 2 years in prison for abusing 8-month-old daughter who suffered frostbite See in context

She was a single mother worn out from looking after her toddler son and baby daughter. What she did is inexcusable, of course, but where’s the father?
