Be out of Japan and you are free from indictment. At Nissan without Ghosn, you will lose your room at Nissan. Saikawa will also be leaving Nissan. His role of getting rid of Ghosn is finished. In business wise, Mitsubishi will be in trouble.

Is there any endangered species the western countries consume? We are wary always becoming their target about foods we eat. Do they want us eat the same things they eat? Are they interfering eating habit of other countries?

It was a bad move Japanese Defense Ministry ｍade public a video clip of the radar lock-on incident. Defense minister is not a wise man.

Ghosn's role is over at Nissan. Merger of Nissan to Renault is not beneficial to Nissan. It is natural that they dragged down Ghosn who is trying to put Nissan under Renault.

Kosuge Detention House is called in other words "substitute prison." Anyone who got in the hands of Tokyo District Prosecutors Office Special Investigation Team is out. Ex prime minister of Japan Kakuei Tanaka was investigated in the Lockheed scandal and the court battle continued until his death.

If drivers and pedestrians observe traffic laws 100%, accidents are not supposed to happen. But human errors happen unavoidably. Some ignore the rules intentionally or make careless self judgement. I always feel scared by an imagination if a car running the opposite lane by some reason suddenly cross the center line into my side. Japan's narrow roads divided only by drawing white line in the center is dangerous.

I do not hear any Japanese go to D.C. from Hiroshima and Nagasaki and burn Stars & Stripes or go to Moscow and demand return of Japanese islands. They can do such a thing only in Japan safely.

Trump raised the stock prices and lowered the prices too. It all depends how the relations of U.S. and China will become in the coming year. Diplomatically and militarily Trump is a good friend of Japan and helped us in holding down arrogant China while economically Japanese companies and economy are already deeply involved in trade with China. It is a dilemma.

Japan should stop whaling. A young man interviewed by NHK about the news said "Are they keeping the whales at aquariums?" Old Japanese believed whales food while young generation thinks whales animal. Civilization is above culture.

Mr. Nikai, LDP chief secretary is from Wakayama prefecture where they have a long history of whaling. He is pushing whaling strongly. Indifference of Japanese people about the whaling may be they still think whales fish.

Reportedly, this obscure guy appeared at Nissan only a few days a year and most of his time, he was in the States. Yet, he received a lot of money from Nissan as an executive and a friend of Ghosn. I can easily imagine Japanese executives had antipathy to the Ghosn regime. Ghosn did a great job first half of tenure but Nissan workers today are new generations.
