Military scrams happens all the times,Soviet and Yankees have a long history of such kind.

Modern Russia and NATO have countless of military tensions in a daily basis but they don't go whine or call ambassadors.

Sadly such kind of thins are routine,especially for militaristic countries,also I don't think Japan need more enemies,it seems they already have enough.

Oikawa san is right,European teams will perform not at the top with such weather.

From where we come from we don’t have such kind of weather.

I can’t understand this Moon as well.

First he unleashes the hell out against Japan and he wants to get closer again?

How about from first instance have a more civilized and less agressive way to protest?

Posted in: Emperor expresses deep remorse over Japan's wartime actions See in context

What a contrast between this news and the previous one,the Emperor is an amazing person.

Unlike some crazy right wing nuts that talk about peace and go to Yakusuni dressed up in full military WWII gear without care that such uniforms caused so many pain and anger around the world.

The emperor is one of the positive aspects of Japan.

And more people should listen to his words of wisdom.

yeah yeah,for you Japan is always right.

You totally lack of a neutral and fair judgement.

As other posters mentioned before both countries are not going to step down due to their cultural stubbornness.

This tug of war won’t benefit either countries.

As I said,both are very stubborn and won’t listen to neutral opinions.

Agreed that both sides are overly proud and extremely stubborn.

They are so similar that they hate to admit it.

Anyway in all european news this regional feud have no importance.

This shows that it is merely a matter of keep the flag high.

Maybe Japan and South Korea should wake up and realize that we live in 2019

Posted in: Japan, led by less apologetic generation, stays tough in S Korea feud See in context

I ask to the foreigners in this forum that live or lived in Japan to recognize the foolish stubbornness of South Korea but at the same time don’t forget that this hawkish right wing government in Japan is not contributing to improve relationships with their neighbors.

Sadly both countries are homogeny collective controlled societies.

Gambare fly down,I know that for you everything that comes with the word Japan is the best top in the world.

But beer?

Is European field,just in Germany there are over thousands of craftbeers or even national beers that will put down Asashi,to don't mention the exellent Czech or the rich tasted Belgians.

The humidity is a key factor,even more than the heat itself.

People should stay indoor if possible during the hottest hours,or at least drink as much fresh water as possible.

Posted in: Japan OKs first S Korea high-tech export since curbs, but with a warning See in context

Again,national flags must be respected,because they retain the identity of a community.

Even the enemy's flag deserve respect.

Furthermore I have no idea what do they think to achieve in doing such stupid things.

The South Korean government if want to improve the relationship with Japan should take harsh instances with such kind of idiotic manifestations.

You have a good point Wallace.

This can also be what the propaganda want to show us here,after all I remember not to long ago when the Uyoku boys used to burn korea flags in the streets of Tokyo.

What a sad and disrespectful photo is that.

It really makes me lose hope in good sense,these kids were born way after the war and they take it so personally?

Didn’t they learn that every national flag is sacred?

In countries like Thailand such actions are punishable by prison.

With these actions if the koreans had a slight right to protest against Japan now they lost everything.

Posted in: Students take stand against sexual violence at Japan's universities See in context

Japan is a pyramid structured society,no matter how students will protests the old boys at the top will always make the difference at the end.

We have to wait that this generation of oyaji will end and then with the next generation at the helm we can expect some real changes for women rights.

Still this is a country where in many companies women are forced to wear skirt and heels,and I don't see this to have a drastic change in the few years to come.

They still have a long way to go and to learn,first by simply accepting the dual nationality and as most advanced countries replace the old and outdated Ius sanguinis law with the more logical and human Ius soli.

Many Japanese guys around that age 50-60 are extremely arrogant, xenophobe and sexist.

Not a big news if it wouldn’t happen that the guy is a mayor.

Kim

I’m not a fan if this Japanese government.

But call them nazist or fascist?

I think you cross the line here.

Yes Japan “unfortunatelly” in my opinion is taking a to conservative approach in many fields.

Said that I’m also sure that democracy is not in danger here.

Unlike South Korea that had a real dictatorship not long ago.

And furthermore call the Japanese government of that time nazist/fascist is totally misleading and unhistorical.

The fascist ideology have a charismatic leader to guide them which Japanese didn’t have.

In fact during that period of time 1935-1945 there was a real Japanese Fascist Party but it never reach good numbers and stayed marginal.

Also mix the Meiji era again with nazism sounds very gross.

Again,with all this hate Koreans won’t go that further in the bilateral relationship with Japan.

Posted in: Moon calls for 'peace economy' with N Korea; slams Japan See in context

Interesting how many people try to portray themselves as historians even without knowing the basics.

Sorry Tina but Korea was unified several times in history,under the Kahn previously (mongolians) and Chinese.

Furthermore the Joseon dinasty ruled the whole Korean peninsula for almost 500 years,this includes the invasions,but still retained the unity of country.

People before post do your homework better please.

Hhhhmm Mr.Moon really lives in another planet,or maybe the moon?

Even if hypothetically speaking the two Koreas will join side together and bond economically because of the north huge industrial disadvantage and rampant poverty rather than strength it will enormously impoverish and destabilize South Korea.

Mr.Moon will do good to his country and people if rather than keep asking compensation for the war which has already been payed would pressure the Japanese government to his insincere apologizes.

The islands are Russians now,there is nothing we can do.

With such mindset then The kingdom of netherlands could ask to get back the northern Belgian territories or maybe Spain claim Granada as well.

Japan payed for the damaged caused during WWII and apologized.

Furthermore most of the people that lived in that timeline are dead.

Why show all this hatred feeling to Japanese people that never killed a human being?

Maybe Korea should knock at the door of China and even Mongolia to ask money for the conquering and damaged caused.

Frankly speaking the Korean media and the mass is crossing the line with this thing.

I understand to mourn their victims and ask respect, but all this hate against Japan is really exaggerated.

The SK government should not allow such things to happen.
