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.

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.

Posted in: Japan opts not to join U.S., others in criticizing China for Hong Kong law See in context

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.

Posted in: Japan to require virus testing, itinerary in easing travel restrictions See in context

I understand people are concerned about tourist industry, but we should remember that it is for now necessary and it will not be forever, but it will be temporary. This decision is the right decision since the problem is still a reality on this moment.

We tend to make criticism about the government, but only them know what kind of decision is the best to do be done at this moment. Of course, government leaders can make mistakes, but they are the one who know what is happening around the world.

I wish things could be better and everyone could travel like it was before now, but we should be patient and make our best efforts to cooperate so that this problem is solved.

Posted in: Japan's low virus mortality rate reflects social manners: Aso See in context

There are plenty of points that may be the reason of why it happens. As someone said, it may be because of genetics, but on my personal opinion is the type of food that the Japanese eats that is the main point about low mortality rate.

In addition to that, such social manners like wearing masks, talk soft inside of train, and so on also help the situation become better.

Now, I read some comments about it her mentioning racism and to be sincere I didn't get why his statement is considered racist.

The most important thing now is to take all precaution as you can.

I understand those who are concerned about it and think that staying home is the safety thing, but everyone should understand that regardless of staying or not staying home the risk will occur anyways.

Since we can not ignore this risk and we can not ignore the fact that we still have bill to pay and food to buy, we should more than before take care of ourselves.

It is a hard thing to do, but if we wait until the country have 0 cases, it will take too long time.

Why does India have a lower death rate and number of cases per capita than Japan? India, a wonderful place, is not noted as the most hygienic of countries.

According to Worldometer India have lower death and case'number per capita than many countries. However, if we look at all details we see that India has increased the number of death and cases recently.

But the state of emergency has been lifted. People here keep telling me coronavirus isn’t a problem in Japan.

Actually, the major problem besides what antiquesaving mentioned that is health habits and cultural customs is how people react to what the media says.

In western countries the media broadcast news regarding this in a way that make people in panic. When news media just mention the number of death and how it increase, people get stress and as a consequence they have they immunity system affected.

When we give a look on details like age, health background, the place where the person lives, his\her work condition, the quality of his\her food, etc... we start to understand why some countries have different numbers and situation.

I understand the principle of keeping patriotism, but at the same time I think that students have the right to have freedom regarding school things.

Now, looks like Beijing is afraid that Hong Kong become a country like Taiwan is. In other words, a country that sympathize more with Japan than China herself.

Even Chinese from other areas are getting tired of tyranny from Chinese Communist Party and the tendency is more people follow the path that Taiwan and Hong do.

Well...During this whole life I never have seen Japanese groups killing animals that are symbol of Korean pride, cutting their finger, burning Korean flags, throwing rocks at Korean Embassy or something like that. I don't deny there are people who has hatred feeling towards them(Koreans), but this number is very low. In addition to that, people are free to buy any kind of books, magazines, movie, etc...

You mean, why cant more Koreans just accept the Japanese version of their history?

There is a word called "common sense". Regardless of your ideology, you as a adult should understand the meaning of "move on". Brazilians and Mexicans were explored by their former colonies Spain and Portugal, yet you don't see them complaining and demanding Spain and Portugal to apologize to Brazilian and Mexican government.

On my opinion, young people should enjoy friendship with those who share moral values as sincerity, love and honesty. My grandma suffered a lot during the war, but I feel that young people should move on and make the future brilliant. I feel sorry for her sufferings, but I should be responsible to make the world a peaceful world.
