Posted in: Scrapping crippled Fukushima plant to cost Y220 bil annually See in context

Could someone please check my calculations ?

It doesn't sound right to me.

Y220 bil annually

= approx 600,000,000 Y per day ! (600 million)

= approx 25,000,000 Y per hour ! (25 million)

Posted in: Japan restarts Takahama nuclear reactor See in context

"after a court ruled it was safe despite opposition from local residents." the reality is that nothing is safe in this world. Even crossing the road, let alone a nuclear reactor.

“Japan is now heading toward war, blindly following the United States. The bills are against the constitution,” said 55-year-old Makiko Inui as she stood in the rain outside parliament.

“Prime Minister Abe is wrong in his way of trying to build peace. We must oust Abe or Japan could be destroyed.”

This was a very mild typhoon which only lasted about 6 hours here in Itoman (Okinawa). Hardly any rain, mostly a bit of wind. During the typhoon I could see people walking around and at lunch time the sun was shining. No problem.

I was having an English lesson with my student (using the telephone) who lives in Hachioji & suddenly she shouts "Earthquake". I am in Okinawa so obviously i felt nothing. Be careful. The same thing happened Sunday evening while speaking with another student who lives in Kanagawa.
