Tokyo Yokohama comments

Posted in: What most people really fear is that a restricted Olympics is the symbol of Japanese politics which has struggled with particular business interests and pressure from abroad. See in context

Japan does not seem to have any backbone when it comes to international politics, whether its over the US military bases, Olympics or North Korea.

Posted in: COVID state of emergency likely for Tokyo Olympics See in context

Apparently media are only quarantining for 3 days due to free speech issues, whereas athletes only need to quarantine for two weeks before they are let loose to go wherever they want to go in Japan. Suga has been doing nothing but lies!

At 12:30 AM on Friday night, it could well be that both of them were so drunk that they didn't even understand reality.

To clear up this mini-conflict burgeoning up in the comments. Hosts are men that cater for women - a gay bar will often have less "dressed up" guys. The whole concept of Korean K-pop boys is derived from a mixture of manga and Japanese host boys.

The Middle East is worse now that during the Arab Spring.

The economic crisis is far more severe and protests are already popping up across the region - in addition there is already civil war activity brewing in the Levant (not just Iraq) and Afghanistan. Yemen is still as hot as ever and Iran is getting hotter.

The migration crisis is going to be far worse this time round.

There needs to be some wording differences between "pre-puberty" , "post-puberty" and "sexually immature". They are all very different classes of "school girl".

The kiss itself should not be a big issue to involve the police (maybe hospital administrators), but pulling down the mask for the kiss ought to be. Did she have a mask on as well?

With bellwhethers such as Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong etc... all going back into lockdown, why do people have such rosy views on the UK and USA?

Posted in: UK health minister resigns after breaching coronavirus rules by kissing aide See in context

As a conservative, even I think this ministry is a joke. Johnson, Cummings and Hancock have led the country through the most messy lockdown in the world and the economy is destroyed anyway. Telling everyone else to do one thing and giving themselves the privilege to do other things. They have no understanding of fiscal responsibility and are now in charge of an economy where inflation is going to wreck havoc and hurt proper public spending. The UK should be in lockdown right now due to the Delta variant...

And to top it all off, in a middle of a pandemic, Boris Johnson brings the token Muslim in to lead the healthcare agency.

Food and pharmaceuticals are cheaper in London.

Public transport is cheaper in most of Europe except the UK.

Posted in: Which electronic payment card systems do you use in Japan? Have you experienced any problems with them? See in context

If this comments sections is anything to go by, apparently most Japan Today readers don't use public transport in a country like Japan!

I use debit card to withdraw cash, a variety of various IC cards for public transport and store purchases, and occasionally I might use a smartphone wallet like LINE pay.

This is up there with building a "charitable" high speed railway line in India that is completely incompatible with the existing railway network, despite the fact that major European railway companies have said that making it compatible can be done at minimal cost.

Posted in: How vaccines work against the COVID-19 Delta variant See in context

While I agree that the Russians etc... aren't inherently credible, I have lost all respect and trust for the major western health authorities as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Masks are pointless and open all borders according to the establishment consensus one year ago.

The only problem is what is the difference between taking a public video and this? Surely privacy laws need to be more strong?

Americans seem to be oppressively media-driven left wing, so avoid them might be a good start.

Anyone who complains about cars probably don't understand that most Japanese don't really like having too many cars on the road. They prefer walking to cycling to cars.

Out of interest how did a 23 year old get arrested for sex with a minor? The age differences would not have been severe enough to warrant concern surely?

If you read that paragraph, he tested negative before leaving quarantine, therefore he must have caught it en route within Australia and hence the search for the missing link

Posted in: Restrictions reimposed as virus resurges in much of Asia See in context

The left wing mainstream media have been blaming everything coronavirus on Modi and the wider Indian right wing, despite the fact that highly safe countries (Singapore, Taiwan) and highly vaccinated countries (Seychelles...) are experiences surges due to the Indian variant. Absolutely disgusting thing to do during a middle of a pandemic where men, women and children are dying in their droves. I hope Israel wipes Gaza and left wing news media off the face of the earth.

Compare the mess that India is in, with the development and organization of Israel. India and Modi need to copy the Israelis and take a tougher stand on Muslims. The fact that India can't even bring itself to support Israel against terrorists show me everything about Modi and the Indian right wing.

Posted in: UK readies for major reopening but new variant sparks worry See in context

Even in the midst of a pandemic, commentators are quick to try and blame the Indian right wing for anything and everything. Recent electoral losses by the BJP were not on behalf of the left wing but votes went to regional right wing and centrist parties - not left wing. And the the Bengal variant is already causing trouble in the Seychelles (highest two dose vaccination rate in the world) and the UK, and could be possible for upticks in Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan. Yet left wing and media prefer to find any time possible to blame the right wing for everything. Hence why I refuse to support left wing Muslim causes such as Palestine and Kamala Harris.

While UK goes back into lockdown, India will be waging war.

Which do you think is more important for incoming ambassadors: To be well connected to their country's leader or to have a good knowledge of the country they are going to? See in context

Biden has horrible choice ability. Kamala Harris is not fit for the job and will only cause problems for the left wing, unless she is supposed to be a scapegoat for the incoming Middle East war and consequent migrants crisis.

Posted in: Israeli strike on Gaza kills 10; unrest spreads to West Bank See in context

Issues surrounding Muslims seems to be increasing dramatically in reason days and you have the situation in India where the left-wing is blaming the right wing for everything with undertones of supporting Muslims. Any news outlet that forces one side of the story like this one just fuels more Islamophobia and plays into the hands of the right wing. I am quite sure that Kamala Harris will become the scapegoat of the Democrats and they will do nothing to help the situation move forward.
