Posted in: Survivors sue landowners over deadly July mudslide in central Japan See in context

This was a devastating tragedy for those affected! The really sad thing is that we have systems that allow people to operate in a reckless, thoughtless manner and then to reorganise their companies to avoid accountability.

The problem, at least in my tiny Japanese town, is dumb lights! No co-ordinated flow across an urban area according to morning or afternoon flow requirements! .......Sorry, I know I've lost you in Japan.

Posted in: 2 women, political opposites, vie for LDP leadership See in context

Yes, and the vote for one of these women is a vote for the extreme right. That narrows the choice down a bit. They will just vote for a man!

Sanae Takaichi

"An ultra-conservative former internal affairs minister, Takaichi, 60, shares Abe's revisionist views on Japan's wartime atrocities and hawkish stance on security."

OK, sounds like a fair choice.......Oh wait!!!!!!!!!!

Posted in: Nagasaki marks 76th anniversary of atomic bombing See in context

My wife and I visited the Peace Museum in Nagasaki. We had just begun looking at the exhibits when two large bus loads of high-school students arrived. We were packed in with the students like sardines! Just as we thought that it was going to be difficult to view the exhibits the students were gone! They were there for 5-10 mins at a stretch. Mrs Agent translated some of the things she over-heard the students saying, things like "This didn't really happen, right?" and "What they are showing us here is not real, right?"

In defence of the Nagoya Mayor, you cant question the Japanese commitment to the Olympic cause. Just look at the opening ceremonies! London 2012 cant hold a candle to Tokyo 2020/2021.........oh wait!!
