Posted in: S Korea to stop using Olympic flag with disputed isles See in context

It's owned by South Korea, and populated by South Koreans. (http://en.dokdo.go.kr/pages/s01/page.html?mc=7228) Classic case of pot calling the kettle black. The same could be said for Kuril Islands.

Posted in: Abe sends ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine for war dead See in context

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent a ritual offering to the Yasukuni Shrine for war dead, seen in China and the two Koreas as a symbol of Japan's past militarism

And some people wonder why Korea and China still raise Japanese revisionism as an issue and harbour pessimism toward the Japanese government's "apologies."

Posted in: Japanese companies struggle to hire, retain staff as labor shortage worsens See in context

"That can include looking to housewives and the retired to come into or rejoin the labor force. In some cases it means offering better working conditions for some staff, even if this requires raising prices. In others, companies are reducing the services they offer, perhaps by cutting opening hours, or delaying expansion plans."

I mean they certainly can but most of them are not doing anything. Why would anyone want to work for minimum pay (

Great. This is all working into North Korea and China's hands. And North Korea didn't even have to do anything.

OssanAmerica, care to elaborate? How is the new likely president going to lead SK against its own best interest? What are SK's best interests?

Very relieved to see that drive-by shootings in Japan involve air guns, unlike some different country we all know about.

whenever things go south for corporations, it's always the junior employees that get hit. Senior executives, however, start talking about their bonuses.

Posted in: What do you think of when you hear the words "Cool Japan?" See in context

"Cool" part of Japan has nothing to do with government interference or, in this case, encouragement. It's always the efforts of each individuals living their lives trying to do what they feel most passionate about, and that has always been the coolest part about Japan, whether it be technology, visual arts, media, comedy, appearance, fashion, and numerous other categories I cannot mention in here.

MsDeliciousAUG. 17, 2016 - 08:26AM JST What is with the price difference? Men should boycott and women should complain. i usually ask the same question. assuming this includes food/beverage (which i doubt for this price) men usually eat/drink more than women. other than that, it is offensive to both genders.

Common practice... have you ever been to Aisekiya, or any clubs in general?

Posted in: Trump is 'unfit,' Obama says, challenging GOP to end support for him See in context

Funny thing I find about many Trump supporters is that, just because they find other flaws in Hillary, Trump's racist bigot comments and policies ("there's going to be a beautiful wall") are justified...?

Just because someone else doesn't have clean hands, it doesn't make it "okay" to spread baseless accusations and lies.

Go for it, vote for Trump, and still try to brag about being the best country in the world with equal protection of rights and freedom for all citizens regardless of their heritage or choice of religion.

At best, Trump for President would be a funny social experiment for all the other G19 (minus Murica) nations when they 'trump' America in all aspects incl. education social governance foreign policy etc.

Hardly surprised anybody. I'm more concerned about:

seek to restore Japan with more self-respect, traditional family values and principles under the emperor as head of nation

What do they mean by "traditional family values and principles," hmm? Maybe a trip back in time to the good ol' days when foreigners and women did not deserve or have the same rights as men...?
