Fighto!Today  07:30 am JST

Excellent news overall - especially for exporters and the booming inbound travel industry.

Hopefully $1 will get to 200 Yen and stabilise around that point.

I guess you don't live in Japan for say this. Yes it's good for 5% of japanese but you have to think about the other 95%.

Posted in: Ohtani says he never bet on sports; claims interpreter Mizuhara stole money, told lies See in context

It is quite natural that Mr Mizutani was fully controlling Mr Otani's money just as a Japanese wife would.

I don't think you realize it. You cannot compare the banking management of a normal family (simple salary, vacation and food budget) and the financial management of a top athlete (salary, marketing, bonus,...).

For these people it is not their wife or friend who can manages it but several professionals (it's a job).

It's not his version, but a version written by his lawyers that he just read, that's all.

> Peter NeilToday  07:52 am JST

According to half of Europeans and 10-20% of Americans, those six moon landings were done in a Hollywood studio, so they should examine the rocks in the heads of those people.

No it's not true, Europeans is around 10%. Can you show where did you find this informaion?

After their visit, I'll bet they hit the beach, danced around a camp fire, and sang "kumbaya" with their teachers!

There is no beach in Geneve nor Switzerland, it's landlocked area.

There is a beach in Geneva, please check before say something wrong

Qatar as the same problem of Japan, the gender parity is awful (Japan ranking 120, Qatar 141)

Should follow the exemple of South Arabia (ranking 72 now, before 120).

Posted in: Japan to cut household electricity bills by 20% to fight inflation See in context

The Japanese overconsume electricity, gasoline compared to Europe.

The government should rather ask people to consume normally and so the bill goes down. (for example, not turning on the air conditioning or the TV all day, not taking baths every day, turning off the car engine in parking, etc.)

Japanese families consume too much! should start to make effort like Europe

David BrentToday  07:17 am JST

Knowing how behind the times Japanese banks are, I’m amazed they even know what SWIFT is.

unfortunately I agree.

My bank in Japan did'nt understand last year when I asked them for their SWIFT number for my bank in Europe.

I don't think many Japanese are in any position to cry foul,

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't remember a single Japanese Olympic athlete having ever failed a doping test.

In 2018, similar case

Fighto!Today  07:46 am JST

Tokyo 2021 involved Japanese ethnic minorities in their national dress, if I remember rightly. So, it seems from the photos, China copied this in their ceremony.

Yes, you're right. China is like Japan. It uses minorities who are normally rejected by the government (like Ainu) to make the world believe that the country is integrating people well.

The two countries are very similar.

purple_depressed_baconToday  09:38 am JST

This is surprising, especially considering that Czechs are exceptionally good at ice hockey. Congrats to them!

The Japanese have a better international ranking than the Czechs. The victory is logical, it's not a surprise.

Posted in: IOC major sponsors mostly muted in runup to Beijing Olympics See in context

Ashley ShibaToday  07:33 am JST

I just heard the Canadian hockey team has pulled out and how many more teams and individuals will follow. So it may not even be an issue for those sponsors, because if there are few athletes participating no one will watch.

this is not true. Canada's hockey team will participate in the Olympics.

NHL players are not eligible to participate (COVID reason).

Posted in: China marks 84th anniversary of Nanking Massacre See in context

Sheikh YerboabyToday  09:53 am JST

every single country does a similar thing....commemorates it's own deaths and denigrates the hostilities of others.......the UK has remembrance day, asking people to wear poppies then call them unpatriotic if they refuse, whilst conveniently forgetting the many millions that have been killed in Britains murderous expansion across the globe over a few hundred years.

The US has it's "thank you for your service" hypocrisy, thanking their soldiers for "protecting" them from an enemy that never tried to attack them in any way, then with another breath loudly berate how other countries behave.

Japan it's contrite, poor us sad-face tabloid headline when remembering the atomic bombings of WWII whilst pretending their own imperial army wasn't one of the worst to have ever walked the earth.

China has Nanking.......this is tiresome. Finger pointing, moral grandstanding about who is the least bad. It's about time we all grew up and consigned war and expansionism to the annals of history.

I suggest visiting Japan, the CCP run media has nothing to do with reality.

I live in japan for a while (I'm from europe). Japanese media are controlled by the LDP, not free like Europe.

Posted in: Suga aims to finish vaccinating Japan's population by November See in context

It's simple.

Population under 18 years old in Japan : 105millions - means 210 millions of injections.

They already made 18.3 millions of injections - Miss 191.7 millions time.

Until end of november still 173 days.

For finish end of November they have to make 1.11 millions per days (average of the last week is around 600,000 per day).

If they can do 1million per day, it wil be finish end of this year

I think it will be impossible.

(sorry for my awful english)
