Similar domestic crimes happen often in recent Japan. I think this is as a result they do not have other family members to stop it. When Japanese had big families - grand parents, brothers and sisters living together, such crimes did not happen. Abnormal actions were watched and stopped by other family members.

Why has the Japan-China relation improved? Because China bacame busy in a trade war with U.S. and Japan became important for them as a trade partner? Has their sea expansionism halted? It is good their anti-Japan campaign became quiet. Thank you Trump.

They are intimidated by China. They say if you withdraw from China, you will never been able to come back to China to do businesses.

Geothermal has a problem. The pipes and equipments get easily corroded due to sulphur.

Do no blame TEPCO very much. They are working hard to restore. In Japan, natural disasters happen in large scales beyond people's imaginations. Winds blowing over 50 k.m. per second in the metropolitan areas is what nobody expected.

Nihon Keizai Shinbun reported on Sept. 6 that prices differ 20% at different regions. Hokkaido most expensive and 20% higher than Kansai and Kyushu where nuclear reactors reopened.

In Japan, electricity is most expensive in Hokkaido and Okinawa while Hokuriku and Chubu cheapest. Prices are cheaper where nuclear power plants working while where they are not working it is expensive.

I do not understand what South Korea expect from their persistant anti-Japan attitude? They will benefit by promoting friendly relationship with Japan. They may be thinking their trade with China more important and unification with North Korea primary importance and do not need U.S. Forces in their country anymore.

I hear Abe was reluctant first. His father is advocating removal of all nuclear power plants from Japan. Abe is different, he wants to keep them. Will Shinjiro move against the will of Abe? No, he will not.

This may not happen in the western world of individualism even if they are members of the royal families. They fell in love and others oppose their marriages.

U.S. contaminated the Pacific Ocean many times near Bikini Atoll despite the protests of Japan. The ocean is already contaminated. This is our time to do it. Keep your mouth shut.

Good way to put an end to the scandals. Saikawa finished his role of protecting Nissan from absorption by Renault that was the intention of the Japanese government. Release Ghosn soon and let him leave from Japan.

At the bottom of the problem is that Japanese are based on groupeism while the westerners individualism. Japanese think the company's profit first while the westerners think happiness of family or individual first. For them companies exist to realize their individual happiness. Japanese thinks a little different. For some, to work for foreign companies may be good but I do not necessarily recommend. "Hire and Fire" is way of life in the western companies. Logic of capitalism is naked and ruthless.

From my expericences, the western companes were not paradises for workers too. Bosses were like dictators and things were not democratic. They had two washing rooms one for executives and the other for ordinary workers. In Japanese companies, things were more equal.

Japanese companies better have two labor contracts one for Japanese workers and the other for foreign workers. You see, at big and old companies in Japan, you can rarely find foreign workers in the same office. You will be lucky if you could work under Japanese bosses who had experinces working in foreign countries but if not...
Situation is changing in Japan as it is becoming difficult to work lifetime at their companies. Jobs are getting insecure for Japanese workers even at big companies and they are demanding freedoms than self-sacrificing cotributions in return for their lifetime employement.

It is difficult or impossible for the westerners to work the same way Japanese salaried men work at Japanese companies. They cannot bring their way of work styles into Japan. Feudalistic ideas still permeate in Japanese companies. So, it was his mistake he joined the Japanese company.

Something I feel strange is that people in South Korea do not think they have their own responsibilites for series of troubles of this time. "Japan is all bad and S. Korea is always just" is their understanding. Burning flags of Japan, demanding apology from the emperor, seizure of assets of Japanese companies, putting statue of comfort woman in front of Japanese embassy etc. etc. I am not surprised Japanese get angry and Korean students have difficulties in finding jobs in Japan.

The train has their safety system - warning signs telling the train driver about a problem happening in the crossing. First sign appears about 600 meters ahead of the crossing and the second sign about 150 meters away from the crossing. At the first sign if the train driver uses the emergency brakes, the train is supposed to stop about 100 meters ahead of the crossing. Police are investigating the Keikyu. The figures may not be accurate. I may remember wrongly.

Why are Koreans such negative and backward thinking? We do not have time argueing the past days. The world is facing many new serious problems as computers are changing the world quickly.

Text book tells in such a case, speed up and break through the crossing gate. But the truck was too big to control quickly. I think the train had a problem too. Their safety system did not work or the danger sign was overlooked.

Are you writing your address in Japanese order too? It will be confusing. When I write a letter to a friend in U.S. I will write my name the same say as now and my address too in English way.

I agree this is silliness from the government. This rule applies only to the government documents in Japan and if any Japanese is writing for English publications, they will have to write the same way as we do now.

Railroads should have a safety system that trains automatically stop when cars are in the crossing while gates are closed.

Why do Koreans so much care about what we do in Japan? You do not care about burning Japanese flags and effigies of Abe in your country. In Japan burning flags of foreign countries is punished by law.

Japan and Russia had a neutrality treaty. Russia cancelled the treaty and declared a war on Aug. 9 one week before Japan surrendered on Aug. 15. This is a nasty thing.

Traffic rules say cars has to stop in front of the train crossings and have to check trains coming or not. I wonder the truck stopped before entering the crossing. Condolences to the victims.
