Unbelievable. So much wish washy from this inept government. If the citizens don’t vote the LDP out next election, Japan has no future.

Taiwan has stories blaming Japan for more than 150 deaths from the AZ vaccines Japan donated, possible linking it to incorrect storage procedures. And Japan wants to support other countries? What a joke.

Who will trust Japan when Japan can’t even help itself? Remember Japan said the best strategy to stop COVID was to test people only after 4 continuous days of fever. Come olympics, foreigners must be tested every day even if they don’t have symptoms. This type of hypocrisy is a joke.

Exactly. And on top of that, they show up to the DIET and then SLEEP.

Spot on. Not just at home but overseas as well. Abe sleeping at the UN meeting? Embarrassment.

Visiting dignitaries often pay visits to the cities as a reminder of the nuclear attacks by the United States in August 1945 during World War II.

As a reminder??? More like to brainwash people that Japan is a victim of WW2. Reminds me of NK where foreigners must visit the statues of the dead leaders.

Posted in: Suga upholds Japan's apologies for wartime aggression, comfort women See in context

Nothing to read here. If you know Japan well, you know apologies are mostly lip service to foreigners. Compare their apologies to their own citizens, even for minor issues…. Straight away 90 degree bows and begging for mercy.

Then, at least be prepared to import world class ALPS treatment units from the US, rather than relying on last minute low tech home made units which failed to properly treat the radioactive isotopes in Fukushima.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea divided over wartime history, Fukushima water release See in context

Unlike Korea which every year releases the same stuff into the Sea of Japan from their nuclear power plants.

Ah no, the difference between the two is that Fukushima water has other radioactive materials still, not just tritium. It is why other countries such as Taiwan, Philippines, Russia, China, France and Canada raised concerns. It is also why the US still bans all Fukushima produce.

https://www.reuters.com/article/japan-disaster-nuclear-water/rpt-fukushima-nuclear-plant-owner-apologises-for-still-radioactive-water-idUSL4N1WR66Q

And the reason? Japan had to insist on using Japanese made ALPS treatment units, rather than importing world class units from the USA. So 2 of the 3 units failed to treat the water properly.

Nobody is going to Yasukuni to "worship" war criminals. They go to pray for the souls of 2.4 million dead.

Would you pray for the soul of someone who murders your mother? No I didn’t think so. So don’t be a hypocrite.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea divided over wartime history, Fukushima water release See in context

Japan hasn't invaded Korea since the 1500s. The 1910 annexation came to be because there were pro and anti factions in Korea at the time. There was no war between Japan and Korea leading to the annexation.

If someone went into your house to steal things, that’s called a home invasion. Further, the Japanese killed people in the process including the queen because they were resisting. Pathetic logic.

This includes TWO official apology and compensation given to the comfort women, 

Yeah, but you conveniently leave out the fact that those politicians then go to the Yasukuni shrine to worship the criminals and murderers. Seems more like lip service, don’t you? If you were really apologetic, you should condemn those criminals, not worship them.
