those kids were born of grandparents abducted to Japan as slave laborers,

That's how they were told in Korean schools but in fact no individual ever testified as such.   Koreans in Japan hear from their parents that they came to Japan for better jobs.

It will be a "bumpy road"

Stop the drama.  As expected, Trump demanded Japan/SK pay money to NK. US's real ally.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea differ on how to deal with Kim Jong Un See in context

I wonder if anyone in the Abe cabinet has actually taken the time to look at a map and realize that it says "Korea" and not Japan on it?

NK is demanding money from Japan so why not Japan say something?

You do realize that both China and Japan operate huge trade surpluses with the U.S.

Japan is only 4th largest of US imports and 4th largest of US exports.  Hardly to be compared with China.

you will find more Japan products in the US than you will find US products in Japan

Because US products are not easy to see such as weapons, fighter jets, Music copyright, Medicine, Wheat, Fertilizer, etc.

Japan depends on global growth to fuel its own economy for which exports are crucial.

Japan is a domestic economy country with trade dependecy 12-16% GDP.

Before Pearl Harbor, US stopped food supply to Japan.  (But during the war, US secretly sold food to Japan thru another country to extend the war)

US is unreliable country for food.

 "accounting irregularities"

Japan's accounting is a little different from US, nothing new.  Zerox is obviously lying and trying to evade the responsibility.

I'm sure US would demand Japan to pay NK huge money again.  US and Koreas are pals.  But Japan should refuse this time.

..old people should die quickly cause they don’t pay tax

He didn't say that.  He himself is a old person.  He said "I cannot say old people should hurry up and die, but I wouldn't prolong my life by using expensive medical measure without any hope of recovering"

I admire hitler

He didn't admire hitler. 

there is no such thing as a sexual harrassmet charge.

there is no such thing as a sexual harrassmet charge in Japan.  How can you criminally charge someone who merely said "The dress looks nice on you" or "Let's go to dinner"

Posted in: Japan must boost protection for sexual harassment victims, says Noda See in context

This is the most recent press freedom ranking I could find, which puts SK in 43rd, Japan in 67th and China in 176th, five places from bottom.

Even with the ranking, Japan is lower than SK in press freedom.  SK is a country who arrested a Japanese journalist for a long time and criminally tried who only wrote about the whereabout of President Park in Japanese language toward Japanese audience. 

All Japanese news media are busy criticizing and lying about Abe, but nobody ever arrested for that.

Posted in: Japan must boost protection for sexual harassment victims, says Noda See in context

Japan ranked 114 among the 144 nations rated by the 2017 Global Gender Gap report of the World Economic Forum, flanked by Guinea and Ethiopia, and down 13 places since Abe took power.

The ranking was based on the West value.   Japan was also ranked lower than China or SK by the West about freedom of expression.   So, you can tell the intention of anti-Japan rankings.

Posted in: 5 more Australian MPs leave parliament after court's citizenship ruling See in context

 this law chooses just about the blandest phrase imaginable, basically impossible to quantify

When law is ambiguous, you have to interprete it in a way there won't be any inconsistency. 

and with no mention of penalties imposed for not "complying" with that what-does-it-mean phrase.

It says "revoked"

You're just another of those people who believes that dual nationality "isn't allowed", and who is either highly confused when they come across living evidence to the contrary, or chooses the comfort-zone option of ignoring the inconvenient reality and continuing to parrot the fantasy.

When coming across illegal foreigners, people don't report them to the authority. But it does not mean those illegal foreigners are not illegal.

Japan does allow dual nationality.

only if you have some political difficulties in renouncing, says the law in effect. "Make efforts" has a significant meaning. It does not mean "You don't have to renounce".

Neither you nor anyone else here would be able to provide examples of where that has happened.

Some female politicien renouced American nationality when Renho's dual nationality became a scandle. If Japan is a country that allows dual nationality, it wouldn't have happened.

More importantly, no such thing is stated in the Nationality Law.

It seems the entire of the Nationality law says so.  The principle of the law says Japan does not allow dual nationality.

In Japan, if a person has Japanese nationality, his/her other nationalities do not prevent him/her from taking a public office.

In Japan, your Japanese nationality is revoked if other nationality is not renounced.   So assuming a public office with two nationalities is technically illegal.

Posted in: Japan beats unified Korean table tennis team See in context

“There will be no unified team for the men because North Korea did not qualify for this year's world championships.”

Neither North or South Korea Women's team qualified to go up to play against Japan. South Korea did not win a single game at this championships but received the bronze medal.  

Ishikawa was crying after winning the game because of the pressure from the sudden change.

Why didn't they show the special bonds between the two countries in men's games?  Japan's men fought against SK, not unified Korea.

Posted in: Japan beats unified Korean table tennis team See in context

Two days ago both teams pitched this idea, they did not want to be competing against each other

Then they should have withdrawn from the games altogether. They waited until the last moment to announce this and gave the Japanese team no preparation time or idea who to play against. Koreans, composed of the the best players from the two teams,  had a very good idea about the Japanese team and a good rest  

This is nothing but a cheating.

They were passionate... to show the special bonds between the two countries.

Table tennis is not a war, only a game.

NK is said to be a US partner to sell US weapons to Japan and SK.  The last time they talked, US made Japan pay huge money to NK.   I hope Japan wouldn't pay this time to reward nuclear testing and missile over Japan and kidnapping.

gaijinpapa, haven't you heard of brainwashing or WGIP?  You need to know all the detail to see the whole picture.  Just asking the local people isn't enough.  If you ask Koreans, the younger people hate Japan more because of brainwashing.  According to them, Japan is No.1 enemy,  not NK.

Its been 70 years and most of the people who put these god awful statues up have no links what so ever to the supposed crimes committed.

That is the very reason that they build the statues now.  The people who witnessed that comfort women were prostitues have gone.  So these people who build the statues can lie openly now.
