Moron, China will own the defence contractors soon enough without having fired a shot.

Posted in: Japan to stage Tokyo Olympics without overseas spectators See in context

That was an easy and obvious decision, tougher ones are ahead. So easy to be a naysayer but if somehow Japan can pull this off, where we are now, with only 4 months to go I'll be very impressed.

Lovely picture! Did they really jam "hundreds" in there though? If so, kawaisou O-hime-sama at the bottom...

Schitt's Creek is labeled as a comedy, but it's not funny. Tried to watch it and be entertained, but no

Good for them! Less money on F1 and more on HondaJet seems like a good choice, would love to fly in one.

Posted in: Toyota begins building smart city near Mt Fuji See in context

I applaud them for taking this on. Of course It won't be just traditional post & beam construction ( 在来工法) as used in individual houses, but will hopefully incorporate the essence of it with innovation while still using wood. As a powerful Japanese company, Toyota's approach to the future seems to me much better than the haphazard approach of Masayoshi Son.

Looking forward to this match. Usually would never say Serena got over-powered, but I think Osaka will do it.

Posted in: Matsumoto Castle: An irresistible air of composure and grace See in context

I remember reading a sign that said that the castle was painted black to absorb the sunlight and keep the castle warmer during the cold winters in Nagano.

I don't disagree with this theoretically, but was that really the case?

Posted in: Matsumoto Castle: An irresistible air of composure and grace See in context

Matsumoto Castle is worth a visit, but certainly make it more than a day trip from Tokyo. Spend a night and enjoy the many local places. Also wainscoting cannot be the correct term or inference for the black exterior portion, it must have been for some defensive reason I imagine.

Normally the Olympics are very tightly scheduled to control costs & revenues. Currently way too many potential variables to make this a go - sorry Tokyo.

It looks as though these children are offering flowers to the eight children of the same school that died in the tragedy. Pretty cold to say "move on" from such a ceremony or even criticize how they do it. I say good teaching all around just by judging from the photo.
