Nationalism is the plague that builds barriers and prejudice against other human beings.

It's 2019,and rather than see this display of past century national-populism we would see these politicians do something concrete and constructive for it's people.

"Ganbare Japan!Today  12:06 pm JST

Great news! The Brave Blossoms should be invited to the 6 Nations Tournament in Europe. They are a fellow N Hemisphere team, and much better than Scotland or Italy. They beat Ireland. Japan would bring enormous money, fan base and TV revenue to the 6 Nations.

Living in Japan for three years qualifies someone playing for Japan regardless of citizenship?

Actually, there were 16 Foreign born players in the Scottish squad that Brave Blossoms beat."

What? now you claim that Japan must put it's nose even in Europeans competitions?

Never going to happen,because the 6 nations is an EUROPEAN competition.

You better make your asian one.

The streets of Oslo and Copenhagen are as clean and safe if not more than the one from Tokyo and Osaka.

Yes, and it's also true that the Norwegians and Danes are equally as racist and insincerely polite as Japanese. And they also hold themselves to be better than others.

But I wonder why you didn't choose to say "the streets of Rome and New York." Is it because they aren't as clean? Which would imply, what? That there are such things as differences that you you can apply in a general manner when comparing countries?

How shocking!

I've read this same conversation in various forms probably dozens of times over the years, and in the end, it's all pretty childish and pointless. I'm from Canada, and you know what? I think that I'm mature enough and secure enough in having pride in my national identity to admit that the streets are cleaner in Tokyo than Toronto. Yes, they are, and the world is not coming to an end because of it.

I rather find your over reacting post childish and presumptuous,I didn't mention any racism and hypocrisy unlike you that tend to offend and categorize the Scandinavian people as racist and fake,and I guess you never lived there.

I was merely pointing that the poster of the article was over generalizing with the gaijin-Japanese stereotype.

You claim to be old enough,but your overreaction shows the contrary.

The article is deceiving,it make it sounds that only Japan have this uniqueness of calm and politeness.

I would suggest to the writer of this article to try to live in Norway or Denmark.

The streets of Oslo and Copenhagen are as clean and safe if not more than the one from Tokyo and Osaka.

Right, because every school around the world outside of Japan has printed material in Japanese and Japanese translators so that foreign students can better assimilate into society.

Rolls eyes.

I can see how little you know about abroad.

In the European Union we deliver official papers in 25 different languages if requested.

People should get better informations before posting wrong comments and rolling eyes.

And yes,Japan discriminatory way of consider the foreign children have a long way to go before becoming international.

This it a true statement,North Korea is only a muppet and belongs to China.

The most racist and undemocratic country in the world,they are even worse than their former masters,the CCCP.

China is a threat of true freedom and democracy,and some totally nut brainwashed poster is a vivid example of how dangerous their propaganda can be.

Posted in: Japan comedy duo apologize after reportedly saying Naomi Osaka 'needs bleach' See in context

And here we go again.

they really don't get it,don't they?

The black face jokes,the commercial with the white person with a huge nose now the bleach one.

The years pass,the fake apologizes keep coming but nothing changes in reality.

Unfortunately these people don't really know how to live in a global world made by diversities.

In any other civilized countries these comedians would have been fired in a blink eye.

Just in Italy a while ago a sport TV commentator made a remark about how women are not fitted to referee in a professional football game and next day the TV broadcast fired him and he apologized as well.

I guess such kind of things will never happen over there in Japan.

William77 "As an Italian I feel disgusted that that thing is even called pizza.

Oh shut the hell up. Italian pizza sucks and American pizza is way better. Also, I put pineapple on my pizza. I hope that gives you an anger stroke.

The free democratic world will always support Honk Kong as we support the right of independence of Taiwan.

The lack of human rights in communist China is extremely worrying.

The Uyghurs had all their rights as a nation negated and the people of Tibet have been almost wiped out by the horrific Mao’s Han policy.

These are few of the crimes against humanity that the communist republic of China is responsible of.

But the world community is aware of it.

Promising news, and necessary. Together with the USAs Space Force started by Trump, Japan Space Force will ensure PRC do not try and "claim" planets, moons etc.

Have you ever tried to read your comments?

Your lip service to everything that is related with Japan or remotely Japanese is amusing.

And this is another pearl,I guess we must prepare ourselves for the birth of the new Japanese intergalactic empire.

Interesting photo,is this from the early 900?

I see a lot of innovation,young dynamic politicians,many women and of course none of these gentlemen connected to any establishment or lobby.

Poor me,my image of a democratic government is still stucking in such type of outdated old fashioned Danish cabinet.

Posted in: Anger mounts in Japan over 'outdated' rape laws See in context

This should all start from the education to allow less sexual offenders.

Starting to stop hypersexualizing young women and stop selling dirty magazines on convenience stores, or stop forcing women at the offices to force them wear skirt and high heels.

Still a long way to go to catch up the other democratic countries under the women rights.

Posted in: Abe shakes up cabinet, bringing in rising star Koizumi See in context

The conception of democracy seems twisted over there in Japan.

A true free democracy will allow each of it’s sons or daughters to have a chance to reach the top positions.

Especially in politics,a true democracy means alternate the two main opposite parties that in time to time will switch and govern the country.

Japan seems to luck or to comprehend the basics of democracy.

But the majority of people prefer sheeply follow the old order.

To have the son of a prime minister or the relative of another former minister is called nepotism.

It might not be necessary a bad move,I don't know.

The flip side is that all this spending on defense won't be a benefit for the local people,the government should invest more in social welfare.
