My advice is don’t rush to get vaccinated simply because it’s free. Wait at least six months to see whether those vaccinated early will develop serious side effects.

Suga seems to he out of touch with reality. He has more urgent things to do than eliminating hanko seals, like implementing additional spending to stimulate the economy.

Japan should help Vietnam build a country where its citizens don’t have to go abroad for better paying jobs. As for China, how is it that people from the second largest economy in the world have to find jobs in the third largest economy?

What’s Suga doing out there when the first priority of his government should be to draft and implement a third supplementary budget as soon as possible to bolster the economy devastated by the coronavirus outbreak and last year’s consumption tax hike.

It should not be the government’s business to set a goal for hiring female managers in the private sector. Private companies are different from governments in that they can go bust if they perform badly.

He’s got a nice tan and looks fit in the photo. Apparently his life in exile in sunny Lebanon must have done him good. I hope he’s now fit enough to be extradited to Japan and face justice.

The real reason for low birth rates is the simple fact that the average income of those in their prime childbearing age (those in their 20s and 30s) has been steadily declining over the past two decades. They just can’t afford to get married and start a family,

Japan is facing the worst recession ever, and yet the government has done too little to help boost the economy. Even if a third extra budget were to be implemented today, it wouldn’t stop companies going under and people losing jobs. My bet is Suga won’t last a full year.

If the US wants to cut costs of keeping their troops in Japan, the best thing to do would be to let Japan fully rearm itself (including nukes) and withdraw all US military from Japan.

As Defense minister, Inada was known for her incompetence and indecisiveness and often bewildered her US counterpart. I suspect that her statement about equal opportunity in politics was motivated by the fact that she hadn’t been given a cabinet post in the new government.

It seems like the Tokyo Olympic organizers don’t know when to give up. But then if they successfully pull off a scaled-back Games next year, it could be a start of a new, less costly, less extravagant and less insane Olympics.

It’s highly unlikely that Japan will ever become a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. All the five current members are nuclear powers and Japan is not.
