Posted in: Yen surge threatens Japanese companies: Abe See in context

More foreigners will stay and work in Japan if the yen is high (and complain about the work culture). More foreigners will come as tourists if the yen is low (and express their adoration of Japan).

That’s already a popular model in some Asian countries, where people use China’s WeChat, Japan’s Line

Ahem, isn't Line Korean?

For $70 you can take a DMZ tour from Seoul and buy those propaganda paraphernalia. For a little extra you can walk across the border at the train platform to get your passport stamped and walk back.

Plus there are no effective decongestants thanks to paranoia about drugs.

Hyperbole, yes it was. Gaffe, yes it was. But I cannot even tell what he is trying to say. More like a Palin than a Trump.

Posted in: Should the statue of a girl dedicated to the memory of Korean women forced to work in Japanese military wartime brothels be removed from outside the Japanese embassy in Seoul? See in context

No. Don't move. Build more. More statues, more educational programs, more films. Keep history alive. Say: never again.

Posted in: Murakami's aged men show Japan's post-disaster spirituality See in context

Murakami is not dubbed Andy Warhol of Japan, since that is a passive sentence. Murakami calls himself Andy Warhol. In Murakami's return to nativist spirituality, every Arhat looks like Murakami, and 3/11 gives him an excuse to carry on capitalising on his message of the pitiful victimised Japan. He should just call himself Mammon-kami.

Posted in: Japan investigating report of Japanese journalist held hostage in Syria See in context

He has been missing since July but Japan did not care until Reporters Without Borders reported the story several days ago and it went across international media. Yasuda has been very critical toward Abe. That's why J-officials didn't broadcast this one.

Aida is famous for his "Dog" series of paintings of sexy nude amputated young girls wearing dog collars. Funny, the government is not censoring those.

Posted in: Worries grow about freelance Japanese journalist in Syria See in context

Not three others. One other: Watanabe Nobutaka. Yasuda and Watanabe were taken hostage shortly after three others were taken hostage in April 2004. So, five Japanese citizens in total. The five were released unharmed and paid back expenses to the Japanese government. They choose not to be "embedded" with the government media operations. Hate them if you want. They chose to be independent--for you. Only global citizens will benefit from their reporting. I wish the best for Mr. Yasuda. God bless you.
