The person who posted (Castlewillkill) was not a fan, he was a troll looking to agitate someone famous on Twitter using toxic language. Just look at his profile.

I just realized he is likely modeled as the cannibal villain in the Japanese movie "Gun Girl"

The prosecutor has to prove guilt, not the police. The police only have arrest powers and will need circumstantial evidence to present to the prosecutor to will request a trial with a judge. Legal 101.

How much severance is offered in Japan if they consider 3 months unusual?
Most US-based companies pay up to 26 weeks or more.

Japan has to go through bold reform and Kishida has to think bold and be bold

This can happen anywhere and very quickly. Avoid crowds or leave even at the hint of a rush/stampede

I was shocked LGBT was not taught in Japanese primary schools to children like in America. I'm glad the US Secretary of State is going to bring this to Japan's attention.

Japan and their fans won't admit or confess - the Japan 3-year unexplainable and irrational travel ban of a G8 nation hurt their economy. Abe and Suga and Kishida stubbornly kept the travel ban in place ignoring the harm it was causing to global businesses and FX moves. Now here we are - 147 yen and dropping.

Japan is very safe, even if you don't like to admit it..
There is no such thing as "safe" - that is an entitlement/privilege statement that a certain group of people makes until something happens to them.
Japan actually is a "secured" country with practices in place based on previous tragedies like train jumper guards, shutter gates for businesses after hours, and a street camera system.

The Emperor is setting a good example for Japan and the Japanophiles who want to keep medical screenings a "private affair" by showing that it is okay to go screen for prostate issues. I find it weird knowing every man is going to develop prostate issues after 50 to see comments about his "privacy" when this is a serious issue, especially to Japanese men.

"They lock the border for three years and then expect people to return."
The best comment that sums up everything. People who were serious about going to Japan like my dentist in 2020 have zero interest in ever going to Japan after the travel ban was imposed. There is a big denial within Japan about the consequences of this travel ban fallout - it was a very bad decision to allow it to go on this long.

The commentariat here got jokes about N. Korea until they find out one day they allowed N. Korea to get better and better until they cannot be stopped.

" of course the dollar will rise. It is the currency of choice in times of crises."
It used to be the Japanese yen that was considered a safe harbor - but after imposing an unexplainable travel ban against all incoming foreign travel, including students and businesses, the yen lost this haven status

Nation after nation warned Japan that if they kept their unreasonable travel ban up, it will cause irrevocable harm to their economy.
Here we are.

Why are we blaming Abe when over and over - it was the Japanese people who supported this?
They keep voting in the LDP each election.

We see how the Catholic church has been embedded in the UK; see how Islam is embedded in the Middle East so I see no problem with politicians in Japan being embedded with the Unification Church. Religion and politics have been mixing since the Ancient Egyptian era.

Vivian, it has been 3 years since I last saw her as well. We stayed in touch but this was not right and not our fault.

Agree with "master" - looking around the world, these politically-driven restrictions did more social/economic harm than any health-positive result.

I see a lot of scapegoating here. A terrorist scapegoats his reason for making homemade guns and assassinating a Prime Minister. Now politicians are scapegoating why they do not have a great approval rating. And we got some scapegoating to hide their insecurities.

There are no realistic flights from the US to Japan. Some airlines are only flying to Japan, with no return flights.
People are going to choose other destinations until Japan gets its act together.
In all honestly, Japan sounds dull with these restrictions and a cheap yen is not going to attract anybody over going where everybody else is having a good time

Why is Unification Church being brought up? How about we make the murderer and his family pay for the funereal cost?
The good in the real world - Japan has the decency and respect to honor their Prime Minister and their legacy of service to their nation.
