Posted in: Toray says it illegally gained global safety certificates for resin products See in context

Japan is not the same as it was in the 80s and 90s. Too many scandals coming out of Jgov and J-INC. This will only get worse as the economy crumbles and the leaders try to whitewash facts in order to save face.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea exchange protests over World Heritage nomination See in context

Korea can mitigate Japan's attempt at whitewashing the atrocities of war by creating war museums all around the world just like the holocaust museums and teaching the truth about nanjing massacre, unit 731, comfort women, slave labourers etc. Don't deal with these face saving people directly.

Posted in: Public schools in Japan short of over 2,500 teachers last year See in context

These teachers work like slaves. Which means teachers aren't motivated to run creative classes. Which means students don't develop lateral thinking. No future entrepreneurs, leaders and innovative products can come out of this neglected system.

Posted in: Japanese snack maker apologizes for commotion caused by 2-yen price increase See in context

Reason why wages aren't increasing in Japan. Ordinary people can't afford price hikes, so as cost of supplies go up, something has to give.

Posted in: Japan to cut quarantine days for COVID close contacts to 7 from 10 See in context

Japan is like light years behind other advanced countries with respect to COVID decisions. Maybe it's time to stop relying on the mindo that Abe was flaunting so much.

...apparently reversed itself after facing growing pressure from former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his supporters, who are known for their efforts to whitewash Japan's wartime past.

This, the real reason... to whitewash Japan's wartime past. And the Japanese wonder why the Koreans complain so much. No remorse whatsoever.

Posted in: 6 thyroid cancer patients sue TEPCO over Fukushima radiation See in context

The court is a joke in Japan. Similar to the PRC, the jgov will no doubt force the court to rule in favour of TEPCO, just as they did against the farmer who sued the gov for contaminated topsoil on his land.
