So sorry for the many employees under a contract who depend on working and get paid only if they work. They have NO benefits like paid time off for such requests will the companies of the contract employees be renegotiated to include paid time off like real employees of a company do? NOPE.

Posted in: Japan to lift entry ban on travelers from 9 countries, regions; exempt returning residents from quarantine See in context

the first time Japan has lifted its entry ban on any country or region since it began putting parts of China including Wuhan, where the coronavirus was first detected, on the list in early February.

wait, wasn't the originating country that brought this to Japan from China? Which business in Japan has their hands in Suga's pocket and calling the shots. Definitely someone behind the scenes calling the shots.

What happened to the honor and harmony, do the right thing and man up to your mistakes. I hope the charges of hit and run stick and not thrown out because of yen. The system must be an honorable system and do the right thing to that fits the punishment. Gomen just doesn't cut it sometimes to the victims.

Awesome, I look forward lucky bag, in fact we have made a game of it, to see who gets the most bizarre gift. It's new kind fun tradition but the winner gets 10,000 yen. So it is a lucky deal...to bad there are those out there who just miss the point and only see negative.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. begin military exercise as concern about China grows See in context

"Of course, since China fire-bombed and nuked Japanese cities during WW2, it's only natural that the Japanese should hate China."

China has been trying to expand its territorial claims since Ancient China. The Han were never truly defeated but instead changed tactics, today they are known as the CCP.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. begin military exercise as concern about China grows See in context

If China had pursued real peaceful means it never would have 1. built man made militarized islands under the pretext of lies publicly stating "peaceful and data gathering research purposes" 2. constantly encroaching and blindly claiming territory that is not there's using the guise of mass numbers of fishing boats while reaping in stores of fish from waters and economic zones they don't abide by while neighboring countries do 3. continue to blatantly send ships and oil rigs that extend underwater lines into Japan's known waters under the pretense of research yet sucking the oil blindly dry and on an on. None of the above would have happened. I won't even get into the deal breaks and agreed upon commitments concerning Hong Kong. One cannot blame either the US nor Japan. About time is all I can say.

Posted in: Trump or Biden, Japan likely to face harsh demands in trade talks See in context

It just goes to figure that both current and IF a Biden win are out of touch with reality and trade deals. Japan has markets inside the US that hire Americans and keeps the balance with auto and the manufacturing of its parts to supply the autos well within the US. As for opening a market, it will have to be making US companies cut their greedy internal over rated profits and be fair when offering to send US made goods into Japan, designed to benefit the consumer in Japan. Many of the US products while worthy of buying are just too simply large to accommodate in a tiny residence held by many consumers in Japan. What's the point of driving a monster truck on a regular avg road in Japan? Why didn't the US bring US manufacturing jobs to Japan as Japan did to make products with the quality and sellable to the public in each country. The Tohoku region is a prime example with rich land space but not utilized. There are many products that could be made inside Japan creating jobs yet are US goods but sold inside Japan as if they were made in the US saving thousands in costs due to shipping. Instead the Name brands that most know of are not made in the US at all nor in Japan aside a La Z Boy..but then again, you have a recliner that eats up half the space inside a Japanese living room that is used as dining and living area.

Posted in: Fake residence cards proliferating as more foreigners overstay visas See in context

If so many foreigners are overstaying due to jobs, then the root cause is the system itself meaning Immigration and those who set the rules. Time for change but as many know in Japan it means everyone will pay a price.

No good would have come from jailing them, but harsh punishment and closer supervision would have sufficed. Suspended sentence? That's a slap to kid's rights.

Posted in: Japan, China discuss restarting mutual business travel See in context

9.59 million people visited Japan from China in 2019, including around 370,000 for business,

The article failed to mention the losses suffered by local businesses due to the 9.5 mil visiting Japan from China and the mess left behind where only a select few actually experienced any gains. Also it failed to mention that the virus first was reported in Japan due to such visitors from China.

Posted in: Cyberattacks on coronavirus vaccine projects confirmed in Japan See in context

Japanese research institutions developing coronavirus vaccines have been hit by cyberattacks, apparently by China, in what are believed to be the first cases of their kind in the country targeted by attacks 

Ok an attack is an attack by any definition and according to the Constitution of Japan a country has been identified as the source of the attack. Now with this said where is the right to defend Japan and where is the alliance that is to protect Japan? Time to earn that money. An attack was completed so there must be recourse and action.

Posted in: U.S. influence in Pacific wanes; Japan considered 'smart power' by think tank See in context

"The United States has lost a considerable degree of influence in the Indo-Pacific region due to its domestic and international handling of the coronavirus pandemic"

The so called experts once again referencing out dated data that has no bearing on current data today. I would agree with the assessment a few years ago, during the Obama administration who allowed the globalism growth of China only to find out directly of what a mistake that was on on a global scale. Seems mass media has forgotten where this COVID pandemic came from? hmmm. The one-sided trade deals with China not only from the US perspective but other countries are the root cause, in others words putting all the eggs in one basket has proven costly all the way around as the rise in China on the forefront is actually a decline in the world front and proven a disaster to many companies around the world. Many in current data have turned away from China and gone to other countries instead. What growth in stats one sees is actually old deals that were made years ago and still being honored as it takes time for real data to catch up. The US is strong more than what the so called experts realize.

Posted in: 71% of S Koreans see Japan unfavorably as ties sink to record lows See in context

Turning to China like South Korea is what got them to the position they are in now. Seems they didn't learn the first time when they crashed and burned. Japan is doing well into turning to other countries outside China and SK. Even a deal with the Russians is a much better gain than the other two but that's a last resort.

China will only end up being on the losing end no matter how hard or what it does to be and overtake the US. It may for a short time do so but it won't last and will be its own doom. It is destiny and can't be changed.

That's a good move by Suga (aka Avenger Captain America) and pretty sure that Abe (aka Nick Fury leader of S.H.I.E.L.D) is monitoring developing situations in the backroom. Pretty sure Suga has the other Ministers (rest of the AVENGERS) covering his back.

Posted in: Asian stocks follow Wall St lower as stimulus hopes fade See in context

Where people get the notion that the US President backtracks to support the rich is beyond me. The stimulus package is being held by Democrats and thus making it strictly political by Nancy Pelosi. The Democrats evenly blatantly admitted it would pass once the new President would take office and pass in Feb of 2021. Too late for many folks who need it now not next year. The President though it seems like backtrack figured that out pretty quick but the Democrats keep saying it leaves out unemployment, welfare and other programs when in fact I read the entire 3 hr packet and no where does it leave any of the claims out, but in fact adds more money to them as well as small businesses covered, low wage job earners and the airline industry. I personally disagree on the airlines as they charge a hefty fee already. With this said, the only profiteers and laughing all the way to the bank or the brokers.

Posted in: Tokyo protests to China over its ships entering Japanese waters See in context

Chinese coast guard ships that entered Japanese territorial waters near the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea over the weekend left the area Tuesday night, having stayed there for a record 57-plus hours until Tuesday evening, the Japan Coast Guard said.

IMO that's one too many times already in Japan territory where it shouldn't be in the first place. Japan has every right to defend and sink those ships. Importantly why isn't the US responding as a front alliance that it talks about alot to the people of Japan. For once we would like to see this in action not words. A strong united front is what China needs to see. So far nothing but hot air and empty words. I too would just move in if that was the case and possibly as in Tibet the same tactics applied and then one day they moved in. So too in that area. Empty words no action. Who wouldn't.
