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.

Good. Japan doesn't have enough guts to go against China but can ask the Philippines to do so by giving them ships.

Posted in: 2 workers at Fukushima plant hospitalized after accidentally sprayed with radioactive waste See in context

to get skin burns

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.

Posted in: Japan's automakers unveil EVs galore at Tokyo show to catch up with Tesla, other rivals See in context

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.

The Olympics must be neutral. If Russian athletes couldn't compete, neither could American athletes after the war in Iraq and the attacks on Syria, which violated international law.

Posted in: All trips for public schools in Tokyo's Minato Ward to take place abroad See in context

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.

If the adult society is open-minded and able to think about issues on a global scale, that's much more inspiring than taking students overseas for a few days.

I don't think Japan can win. But I don't really like English rugby football, where they have prejudged the meaning of FOOTBALL. I'd like to see strong Japanese play, going all out to score tries.

Posted in: Moving to Japan to work as a taxi, bus or truck driver may be getting easier soon See in context


taxi driving isn’t a job that’s attracting a lot of young people in Japan

then let's make this be a Specified Skilled Workers and seek foreign people!

This drastic way of thinking makes Japan different from the others. I believe once Uber or other ride sharing services become available a lot of young people wound be happy to work there.

Posted in: N Korea unveils first nuclear-armed submarine to patrol waters between Korean peninsula and Japan See in context

I feel pretty for the engineers who are not capable of redesigning the entire hull but still had to add a new item to the boss's toy box

Hope that backpacker submarine won't sink and produce true radioactive water.

Posted in: Tohoku University first candidate for huge Japan gov't research grants See in context

Despite their places in the world ranking, the research they have been doing is pretty decent and I don't think the ability of Japanese research is deteriorated than before.

However, the world's research capability has been advancing at a much faster pace than Japan because of I feel the Japanese introvert trait and short-sighted goal settings for required immediate results in economy.

Some universities such as Tohoku uni are still competitive. Hope the gov not only provides grants but also has long-term future-oriented policies.

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant begins releasing treated radioactive water into sea See in context

Wearing the suit with the hood open and bare hands without a mask doesn't make any sense but just too hot in summer Japan. I admire and feel pity for the tv crew. Staff working in the field always have to endure their supervisor's self-serving instructions in any place any time...

Tell me why people do so much care about Japanese enshrining yasukuni. It doesn't change anything. The extreme right-wing guys who showed up at yasukuni for their own satisfaction are a negligibly small part of the Japanese. Japan cannot strongly go against China Korea Russia let alone the US anymore. Japan cannot be militarized again, which the modern Japanese are not interested in at all unlike the US or China. You know how SDF struggles to recruit people. Why don't you let them go there to just comfort themselves.

My apologies. I exaggerated and didn't their shyness into account... Why don't you ask them some questions like good local places to visit pretending a foreign tourist. The whole point is in such places, TGIF just an example, people are actually expecting a chance to have English conversations and don't mind being talked to by foreign weirdos out of the blue.
