Not expecting much from this useless new PM.
You have to be unbelievably bad to be a worse foreign secretary than Boris was, but Liz Truss achieved it by a long way.
I'm a life long Tory but this Muppets Show is just utterly appalling.

Such a joke.
For someone that lives in the Midlands of England will need to spend about £80 to travel to London to apply for their visa and hand in their passport. £80 to go home again.
Then a week later another return trip to collect passport and visa plus £40 processing fee.
So £400 in (per person) get your visa before you start to even travel.
Problem is is that the Japanese Embassies are working on a limited appointment basis so getting a slot is almost impossible. Appointments for the 21st days ahead open at midnight and are all booked in seconds.
The Japanese government's policy is completely ludicrous. Meanwhile they enjoy their visa free holidays in Hawaii..!

But they really should drop the rules regarding guided tours, it's beyond redundant. I'd like to know the real reason that they are holding on to this.
True... but they have no understanding of anything else and are baffled that most of the planet does not take only organised & structured tours.

You still have to take. Koryo Tours style captive tour, so no one in their right minds is bothering to come.
Exactly right... And it's a right pain to get it organised.
It is a lot more simple to get a business visa and come into Japan for up to 90 days and go wherever the hell you want. Have done this 3 times this year so far myself.
Even if someone come to Japan for one hour long biz meeting (that mysteriously gets cancelled) and then stays on for a further 89 days it's no problem.
So it's a ridiculous system at present and so many local businesses are suffering because of the government's weakness and procrastination.

No, we just love how Trump gives the establishment the finger and the fact that he wanted to dismantle the swamp, allow more people to keep their money, 1st and 2nd amendment and to protect it, limit the power and size of big government, why would you not like him?
Yes but it he didn't do any of that and it's clear he had no intention of doing it. It was all just a brainwashing exercise for the peasants.

Just imagine how quickly an unredacted affidavit would have been "leaked" by an anonymous FBI/DOJ source if the shoe were on the other foot!
Yes well there is a clear difference between a conspiracy theorist's imagination... and reality.

However if your healthy and uncompromised then there's no scientific evidence to verify if the long term effects of recieving the vaccine will negatively effect your health in the future.
Yes, exactly why everyone should be vaccinated!
As you say no scientific evidence has been found that there will be any issues to long term health. Only evidence that is it generally beneficial. Just like all the other vaccines we have taken over the years.

still living under the illusion that vaccines “prevent” infection I see.
Yes badly written as usual.
Vaccines do not prevent infection as most people understand well. They do help prevent it however, and they do greatly reduce the chances of death by infection.

Why is this news for the Japanese? Everyone in western countries knows the “Moonies” are a cult and not a religion and prey upon, for lack of a better word, idiots.
All religions are cults.

a brilliant sneak attack by the Japanese on the USA.
If the Americans had listened to other world powers warning them about an attack in Hawaii then might have been different. Instead the morons were convinced that Japan would launch an attack in the Philippines.

I fully acknowledge climate change and the science behind it.
But I don't feel that this year is any hotter than any other year I have been here and certainly not any hotter than my first year here in 2001.
My electric bill here in Hyogo is lower this year than the previous 2 years.

Live very rurally in UK and now have added rural living in Japan for half the year.
Limited services and infrastructure in both which is not a problem for me at all. In fact that's kind of the point and the charm of living in rural areas.

Then you should know just how harmless the water in the tanks is and the panic is just BS generated by what is left of the fishing industry in Fukushima
Of course you're correct although i suspect the fishing industry know its safe.
Maybe they're more scared about the damage to their industry by the toxic bilious nonsense being spewed out by conspiracy theorists, the anti science brigade, and keyboard warriors who are positively deluded in their idea that they know what they are talking about.

Kishida has erased a $44bn pa tourist sector without so much as a vote, even though LDP dominance means he would win such a vote.
Yes... Must be part of his evil scheme, Darth Kishida. Came to power with a hidden agenda - wipe out the tourist sector! Make Japan poorer!
Thanks... It all makes perfect sense now
