National government: 16 percent

Regional government: 13.3 percent

Toyota: 10.8 percent

Panasonic: 5.4 percent

It's sad that the once top of the world country has few companies worth working for now.

This proves that people become forgetful living in Japan, not only politicians.

Haha, prostitution both legal and illegal like soap and tachinbo is so common in Japan that the claims coming from certain countries even from deceased sounds prousible. However learn self-righteous from China and ignore till everyone forgets about it.

Posted in: 1 dead, 7 missing after 2 MSDF helicopters crash in Pacific during night training See in context

Military helicopters are prone to crashes, not just in Japan but in general. The nature of the missions requires them to fly at low altitudes, and their engines are much less powerful than jets. If they make a mistake or have bad luck, they have little chance of recovering.

If Japan's southern remote islands were invaded by other countries, the US would surely persuade Japan to give them up so as not to get involved in a worthless war for them. They're not a bunch of guys who play by the rules, much less out of humanity.

What a poor guy. It has to be treated as an accident caused by an acute drug side effect out of his responsibility if it's not altitude sickness. He should be sent back to the U.S. without any detention. Your mom and dad are waiting!

So if I run over two of their family members in the Appalachian Mountains and claim an accident due to mountain sickness I could go right back to my country for some money without any custody and enjoy a vacation with my family? I'd go to America if I made some money...

Unfortunately, no one seemed to want to buy the JSDF arms. For one thing some of them are indeed outdated and crappy, though not cheap. For another they're lacking strategic market perspective. Japan's pride and joy the US2 can't sell because it doesn't have the type certificate. Learn from South Korea!

Don't write the article only for Americans. It was originally Iwoto and American changed its name to Iwojoma during colonization. Then the J government revised it back to iwoto.

Previously iwoto and now also iwoto.

That's almost a worst case of exposure and doesn't make sense to say no problem even if that isn't the case.

This information lacks how harmful the sprayed water is to the human body. If the water can possibly cause skin burns the radiation level seems very high.

Fossil fuels would run out in approx 50yrs. It's not about green but the inevitable choice for the next generation to switch to EVs.

One thing is for sure though, Toyota will lose a large market share as you saw Akio Toyoda stepped down to not stigmatize the noble Toyoda clan.

Japanese English education was strategically designed to keep people from fleeing abroad while they could at least read and write papers in English. This had successfully kept talented young people in the country, compared to other Asian countries where the brightest young people head for the US. It was only after Japan lost its prosperity that everything went wrong.
