As long this thing doesn't result on deaths, the number of tests made is irrelevant.
Let's suppose 1 million people are infected, still this number doesn't change the fact that number of deaths are lower than many developed countries.
Deaths happen for many reasons, which the primary one is the lack of immunity and low level of vitamin D and C and second reason may be spiritual(for those who are Christians). For some their mission in the Earth was already fulfilled and they were assigned to next mission to please the Divinity.
It is sad seeing news about it, but instead of worry about our end, what about worry about what we should do for our neighbor and for those who need us?

You won't find anyone buried at Arlington that was found guilty of war crimes at trial and hung by the neck. Plus Arlington is not a place for "war dead". Its a cemetery for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families too.
So do you mean Vanessa that bad American soldiers who killed and raped Asian ladies back in Vietnam War, Korean war and WW II was buried at Mars? As far as I know despite of their stupid action they were never judged and were treated as "heroes" in US. In fact American people back 1970s never recognized their mistakes for what they did during the Vietnam War and other wars.

Thanks to make clear about this subject. Things are very easy to understand. The problem rely on national pride from those who have some kind of frustration against Japan. The way those people says sounds very hypocrite for following reasons:
a) The shrine was not build for purpose to honor criminals. In fact a huge number of those who are enshrined there were women, children and brave men who fought for Japan. Annually thousands of people from all of the world visit that shrine and all of them are not there because they love the criminals for sure.
b)People claim that that shrine should not be visited because there are 14 war criminals enshrined there. Ok, So, does only Japan have criminals? Were Other countries that was involved during the war pure, innocent and follower of Christ? For sure not. Even thought historians don't teach it, you don't need to think so hard to conclude that there were bad people in every country's armies back then and they were buried at those memorial places being classified as "heroes".
c)If we think that we should not go to a certain place because there are bad people being buried there, so we should not go to any other cemetery since good and bad souls are all put togueter in that same memorial place.

I wonder if maps are available in China for cheap price.
Wherever you are maps indicate Senkaku Islands as part of Japan.
Why those Chinese have hard time to understand the principle of respecting territorial rules?

I would be very interested on learning about it for sure. As far as I know Agnes Chow is not fighting for independence, but for freedom and democracy. It is easy to make comments and give opinions about the issue, but to make you comment creditable you should show a document that proves that such group has this intention; otherwise, what you said will be just a mere opinion based on nothing.

“Why do Japanese care about other countries and their political issues, yet never speak out about their own?”
The same we talk about many foreigners here at Japantoday who care about Japan's issues rather than their own country' s issues. I have seen news regarding other countries here, but I noticed that some who loves to criticize Japan never makes comments on threads about their own nation.
I personally never had reason to speak out about Japan because the problems in Japan are different than North Korea, China and South Korea; countries that have hard time to deal with other countries and need to make provocation to get attention from others. Japan different than those mentioned nations is not forcing them to live/think and act according to his way of life. In addition to that, I can't be quiet after seeing a country exploring other people as China is doing with Hong Kong now.

China could attack any other country, but she knows that if she does that, she would get isolated from others definitely.
Personally I don't believe she has the power to say anything; except be quiet. What she can do is to bark, but nothing more than that.

Simon, I always pay respect to those who lost their lives for my family and for everyone today. If Americans, Canadian, Australian, and others can do it, so Japanese can do it as well. I personally don't care about your frustration regarding it. I have already explained it in a simple way, now if you have hard time to understand this simple thing, I can do nothing about it. Hugs!!!

Even small peace of clothes those guys link to things relate to the past. Probably this Korean boy thinks the purpose of military service is to kill people. No wonder why they condemn the practice to wear military clothes. By judging by his statement, I would assume that in Korea nobody use military clothes and everyone who join the army are bad people.
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
Simon, your argument would make sense if such visit were meant to glorify criminals, but it is not the case and you know that. There are 2 billion soldiers including women, children and elderly that fought for Japan. "War criminals" thing turn to be demagogy since people deny the fact that their memorial sites also have bad guys buried in those places.

The problem about this issue is the lack of evidences when it compares to Hiroshima thing. While the Hiroshima case is known by everyone, the so called "comfort woman" or sexual slave is still a theme that is not very clear yet making this issue confuse. Koreans claim that the Japanese explore them, but where is the records that show that they did this "job" for free? I don't doubt this awful thing could be happened, but I doubt if Korea was as victim as some says here since Korean soup opera portrays scenes where corruption was a common thing back in those days.

I don't see problem with that. The same way Americans visit Arrigton Cementery, every nation should pay respect to their war dead.

Funny how Japanese people can be vocal about the politics of another country but are silent about their own
Despite of many problems in Japan, we can enjoy freedom and democracy in Japan. What you are saying is way different from what is happening in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, etc... where those countries are being threatened by tyrants from China and North Korea every year.

Racism is not unique to S. Korea. More serious is in Japan and the U.S.
Well...Here we go again with this "Japan vs Korea" thing.
Nobody in Japan will prohibit Korean people to dress Korean clothes, eat Korean food, or talk Korean in public places. Nobody in Japan will charge more money from Korean costumers just because they are Korean. Nobody in Japan will deny jobs to Korean immigrant. In fact, Korean people have chances to get jobs in Japan and live here.

This is just one of many numbers that we have seen here. The advice is the same: Focus on build your immunity system so that you are able to deal with it and overcome it.

As I said before, people should focus on keeping their body healthy in order to build a strong immunity system so that they can fight against this virus. There is no way to get rid of this thing until a vaccine is available.
5 ( +11 / -6 )
The number of cases are high, but the most important thing is build your immunity system. If your immunity system is weak, the chances of recovering from this virus is low. People are too much focused on "new cases" thing that they don't realize this strong point.

I rarely make my comments about this thread, but I think blaming the government is not the right thing to do; especially if those who blame Abe san is not doing his/her part. I believe that if everyone does the basic thing to prevent this virus, things will be better.

According to a video that I watched at youtube South Koreans consider North Korea as friendly country and Japan as a enemy. I never have understood it.

On my eyes it was the wrong decision made by the Japanese government, but let's see what will occur from now on. Many times we as common people judge thinking we are right and we end up seeing that we weren't. Perhaps the government is thinking about the future and the current moment, but it may not necessary means that Japan is on China's side but for now they think be against the communist dragon is not the wise thing to do.
There is a right time to do so and this time on my opinion is when all developed nations is totally free of leftist movement where countries like Japan, Germany, Canada, England, France and the US for instance can join force to go against the devil regime. Now, many countries are facing troubles caused by leftists and whoever fight against the evil will have troubles, but it is just my opinion.

. The Contracting Parties confirm that [the] problem concerning property, rights and interests of the two Contracting Parties and their nationals (including juridical persons) and concerning claims between the Contracting Parties and their nationals, including those provided for in Article IV, paragraph (a) of the Treaty of Peace with Japan signed at the city of San Francisco on September 8, 1951, is settled completely and finally.
Well...By reading it we see how clearly the 1965 treat was regarding the claims about past issues.
The products supplied by Japan shall not be re-exported from the territory of the Republic of Korea. pg270
(g) It is confirmed that problem concerning property, rights and interests of the two countries and their nationals and concerning the claims between the two countries and their nationals, which is settled completely and finally as mentioned in paragraph 1, Includes any claim falling within the scope of the "Outline of the Claims of the Republic of Korea against Japan" (the so-called "Eight Items"), which was submitted by the Korean side at the Japan-Republic of Korea negotiations and that, therefore, no contention can be made with respect to the above mentioned Outline of the Claims of the Republic of Korea against Japan ;
It includes individuals.
Regardless of anything, I hope by dialogue the situation between those nations get better.
