Posted in: Japan hopes for early easing of tensions in Gaza, Kishida tells Israel president See in context

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told Israeli President Isaac Herzog Friday that he hopes tensions in Gaza would ease as soon as possible

well, that’ll change things for sure then……

maybe he should go to NK and tell Kim, I hope all the tensions there would ease as well?

maybe Kishida will end all world wars…..

what a waste of time and money.

"I would like to demonstrate Japan's determination to take a leading role in Asia" to realize carbon neutrality, Kishida told reporters at his office before leaving Tokyo for Dubai.


By taking an endless amount of unnecessary flights around the world?

Kishida has expressed eagerness to encourage COP28 participants to make more efforts to accomplish the goals outlined in the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.

Maybe he should encourage his LDP cronies to make more efforts and stop creating scandals and embezzling money, instead?

Posted in: 2025 Expo ticket sales begin with 500 days to go amid cost concerns See in context

Advance sales of admission tickets for the 2025 World Exposition in Osaka began Thursday,

>  sales target of 23 million tickets for the event

> The organizer hopes that 14 million tickets, or about 60 percent of the sales target, will be sold in advance.

> an adult one-day ticket purchased during the event priced at 7,500 yen.

> Multiple-entry season and summer passes for adults are also available priced at 30,000 yen and 12,000 yen, respectively.

> "lack of efficient communication with the host."


I love comedy in the morning.

They should make a website or app about the running numbers on how many actual tickets are being sold.

That would entertain us for the next 500 days.

I can imagine the people buying tickets now.

"Should we drop all of this money on tickets father? I mean the event is 500 days away, and they have shown NOTHING completed or even worth going for yet.

SURE, mother! Why the heck not!?!? We'll buy ten tickets please."

Posted in: House of Representatives staff member arrested for shoplifting See in context

Hiding 9000 yen of groceries in his coat, and he thought no one would notice…… of a genius.

gotta be one of Kishida’s boys.

The hell was he stealing anyway? Pocky and Katsu bentos only add up to about 600 yen.

What did he have? Fugu sashimi and a 69 year old bottle of wine as well?

The camera person had one job to do……horrible capture.

I dug the dude in suspenders swinging the “man catcher,” smashing the little bikes.

Posted in: Kishida grilled over alleged gifts to IOC for Tokyo's Olympic bid See in context

Kishida said in response, "I would like to think about concrete responses after carefully considering the circumstances surrounding the retraction" of the governor's remarks.

translation: “you got me dude, you got me. (Under his breath) Damn that was a good one……..psst, Tanaka, get me the hell out of here. book me on a 21 day “peace tour” to anywhere. You know the drill.”

I gotta admit, as much as Kishida is hated, he’s got tremendous balls to show his face anywhere in public, thinking everything is all G.

He's just asking for disaster to happen.

Hawaii may allow Japanese tourists to pass border checks from Japan

That's all fine and good, Hawaii can do whatever they want.

But as long as the Yen is trading at 148 - 152 to $1 USD, the Japanese tourists are not going to be showing up in droves.

Even if they do make it to Hawaii, there's nothing left for them to spend on frivolous shopping.

"It is often said that if one group accounts for about 30 percent of the entire population, they are not a minority," said Hiromi Yokoyama

i’m definitely no math expert. But I’m pretty sure anything less than 50 percent, is the minority.

Posted in: Figure skating icon Hanyu announces divorce; blames slander, stalking See in context

the couple has been troubled by slander, stalking and overheated media reporting.

the more you keep things hidden, the more people want to find out what you’re hiding.

the whole thing sounds like a publicity stunt, or just a scapegoat……but even if it’s sincere, just put everything out in the open from the start.

that way, maybe initially it would be a big deal to the “media”, but no one will care after a month.
