When I first saw the photo I thought it was Misaki Ogura, the little girl who went missing from the campsite and found dead in Yamanashi. They look very similar.

Posted in: For love or for money? TV star’s views on marriage make waves in Japan See in context

Apparently Dewi was set up with Sukarno by Yoshio Kodama. She was 19 and he was 58. A marriage for political reasons rather than love or even money I believe.

@Gina You obviously don't live here!

The only reason these people are working in these facilities is because the hourly pay is better than a 7-11 or factory job!

@Rodney So there are 7 cats at the train station that are unvaccinated. You have an NGO you say. So why haven't you tried to catch those cats and get them vaccinated if it bothers you so much. And why haven't you communicated with the man that feeds them. Maybe he can volunteer his time and help you in your NGO activities.

So they can't have an abortion after 20 weeks? That is FIVE months into a pregnancy. What the hell are they asking for? To be able to murder a baby up until the day before it is born naturally?

It says they will be inviting over 6000 people. Do members of the public get to attend? It would be bloody cheeky to use taxpayers money and then exclude them. But we all know what little regard the LDP has for the serfs that fill government coffers.

The blackout challenge on Tik Tok has resulted in the deaths of more than 80 children. When is something going to be done about this? I can't believe the absolute junk on there that gets millions of views!

Posted in: WHO: COVID deaths down by 15%; cases fall nearly everywhere See in context

@gokai_wo_maneku- I wonder if they really are increasing. I reckon it's because of all those free PCR testing centres that have been set up in Tokyo and Osaka. I heard that they they were handing out 500 yen vouchers to people who got tested. One woman on a news piece on You Tube said she had taken 9 tests just to get the vouchers. People who have no symptoms are going to get tested just so they can get the vouchers or get off work and are showing up positive.

Nothing to do with her not wearing a mask. He's just a frustrated loser who needed somebody weaker than himself to take his frustrations out on. There's a lot of them around these days so watch your backs JTers!

Posted in: At least 5 members of Kishida's new cabinet had links with Unification Church See in context

@kennyG

Follow the example how Singapore has done that by passing new bill to protect citizen against freedom of religion BS.

You said a NEW bill. The bill that was passed on the Moonies dates back to 1982! You made it sound like a new bill was passed that restricts religious freedom.

Google is your friend. You find lots of info.

Did look on Google and nothing came up because there is no NEW bill restricting freedom of religion in Singapore!!!

@kennyG What law has Singapore passed? As far as I know even semi fascist Singapore's constitution guarantees freedom of religion.

These LDP politicians in bed with the Unification Church (including Abe) are 売国奴 (ばいこくど)

Posted in: Husband who helped wife leave Unification Church now supports others See in context

Why do people join cults like the Moonies? Doctrine is rarely the reason I believe. In a cold and alienating society like Japan these people are merely looking for companionship and a sympathetic ear.

Posted in: Japan defense chief Kishi may be replaced in Cabinet due to Unification Church links See in context

@Blue- Aum actually had a political party called Shinrito. In 1990 Asahara and 24 other Aum members ran in the Diet election but none of them got elected and Asahara himself only got 1700 votes. This is what set them on the path to 'punish society'.

@Redstorm Are you or a member of your close family a member of Soka Gakkai?

The founder of the Soka Gakkai, Tsunesaburō Makiguchi opposed the war and refused to support it. He was imprisoned for his beliefs and died in Sugamo prison on 18 November 1944 (aged 73).

The problem is Soka Gakkai diverted from Buddhism and became a cult teaching Ikedism. Where is Daisaku Ikeda anyway. He hasn't been seen for many years. Is he still alive? Or does he have dementia? Why does he not appear in public anymore?

@JOEE (dot) jp What an admirable initiative. I checked out your website and saw you injured your arm on a charity ride. Hope it is healing well! I will explore your website further as your cause is something I am interested in supporting.

@Wallace I am not an expert on Mex food but I have seen quite a few ingredients in the Gyomu Super for Mexican food. They have many shops all over Japan. They also stock lots of other imported and Halal foods at very reasonable prices.

believed his grandfather, former Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi, had invited the religious group to Japan from South Korea,

Every article I have read ( including this one) and all the news broadcasts I have watched on Youtube have used the words 'he believed' Like as if the connection to the LDP, Kishi and Abe was a just a conspiracy theory that was all in his head. Has anyone else noticed that?

Not my very well read and well informed husband. He has always known this. It's the Japanese who rely on Japanese TV for all their information. Like my late mother-in-law. When my husband would try to inform his mother on such topics she would usually ask, 'Did you see that on TV?'

Posted in: Japan to recognize Turkish Kurd as refugee after appeals court ruling See in context

@Gaijinjland He was granted refugee status so he has every right to work and receive social welfare if necessary just like any other permanent resident. The Iraqi you met had not received recognition as a refugee yet. He might have been appealing his case which is why he couldn't work.

@Rodney So what came first? You came here to work or you married a Japanese national?

If he followed the procedures for refugee status and the Japanese government has recognized his claim he has every right to be here just like you!

@Rodney and Tokyliving -Turkish passport holders can enter Japan without a visa for a 3 month stay, There are about 2000 Kurdish people living here mainly living in Warabi, so maybe he already has family here, What brought you here from across the world?
