Of course commenters who have no roots in Japan to begin with wouldn't care about such things, but thankfully the Japanese government doesn't answer to them.

many other foreign monarchies once had only male succession, many have now changed and guess what women do just as good as job as being the head of monarchies as men. Why does Japan think they're so different or special over other monarchies to not allow female succession!? yes all monarchies have traditions and most have changed as society changes, Japan is a far different country than it was 100yrs ago

Smoking, doesn't matter what quantities you smoke it is doing damage to your circulatory and respiratory system, smokers are 8 times more likely to die from strokes and respiratory illness than non smokers, smokers die on average 7 yrs younger than non smokers. Decades of research and statistics confirm these facts, so you can understand why governments have a duty to help stop people smoking to live longer healthier lives.

Very sad. Try that stuff in the US and you will get a punch in the face.

people need to stand up for themselves, a job any job is not worth that abuse, if it happened to me Id calmly tell the boss quit with the insults or Ill report you to the relevant management of your power harassment and government agencies, if that failed then Id just say lets go outside and settle this in the car park if youve got the nads! Even if you lose bullies always remember a punch in the face think twice next time they start hurling insults.

We say the same about the people trying to undermine the will of the people and duly elected President.

thats what Trumpster still cant get , it wasnt the will of the American people that duly elected him, hes doesnt have majority support pf Americans, does not have majority support of eligible voters and doesnt even have majority support of the people that actually voted, so please stop referring to him as " the will of the people" just more fake lies and propaganda

Last year I flew to Okinawa for free using points I had earned by never using cash.

I only use cards for my business so there is a electronic trail for the taxman, I accumulate a over a couple million yen in points just on my cards every year. when it comes to personal stuff I use cash whenever I can, the J government doesn't need to know everything I spend my money on

Has nothing to do with Senate Democrats Not removing him.

why do you keep regurgitating the same thing, it obvious the Republicans will block it in the senate, the whole point of the investigation is to expose Trumps corruption, mountains of evidence and documented proof, multiple associate's now in or going to prison , will let the US voter decide if they want more of the same come 2020

EU ready to soil pants if USA puts equal taxes on cars imported to USA.

not as much as when the EU tax the big American corporations for the actual products they sell in the EU and not allowing the shifting of profits to low corporate tax jurisdictions like Ireland. US corporations wont look as profitable when they actually have to pay their fair share of taxes to the profits they actually make in the EU

Posted in: One year after arrest, Ghosn seeks to throw out case against him See in context

Ghosn...YOU got it covered! Prosecution is running scared and time is running out. Acquittal - case dismissed!

as much as that would be the democratic thing to do japan will do anything to keep face, even it means a conviction any conviction. Justice in Japan is about numbers or the illusion of it , doesn't matter if a person is guilty or not. The only way to make Japan change is shame on the international level, you cant easily unprogrammed centuries of a cultural mindset.

just imagine it it was an average citizen who didnt have the money like Ghosn and refused to confess to something they didnt do, theyd most likely still be in detention/prison for an alleged crime they havent even been convicted of. Yet some still think this is perfectly fine well, because Japan!?!?

Do not brag about democracy in your countries and stop bitching about the Justice system of Japan. 

firstly you have NFI how a proper democratic legal system works. whataboutism isnt an excuse for undemocratic practices some people need to grow a thicker skin if you cant handle criticism. Just imagine if it was one of your relatives that was in Ghosn position Id say youd have a complete different outlook on Japan justice then.

that they do not yet have access to prosecution documents "proving" the tycoon's guilt.

that in itself is undemocratic in most 1st world democracies the prosecution has to provide all the evidence and documentation to the defence so they can DEFEND against those accusations.

presently they're only getting slithers of information through the prosecution and leaked information to the press, how is any legal defence team able to prepare their defense against the accusations. When you have a system that relies heavily on a confession or a false confession there is no need for thorough investigating, which is why the prosecution does not give all their evidence to the defense to make the case heavily in favour of them . I mean why even have a defense may as well make the prosecution judge jury and executioner but then Japan wouldnt really be a democracy then would it.

Posted in: Trump asked Tokyo for $8 bil to keep U.S. troops in Japan: Foreign Policy See in context

So the $8 Billion Trump is looking for.... is actually quite close to being a very fair number. Trump is looking at this from a perspective that the USA no longer needs to be in Japan.

well how about the Japanese ask the US to leave, then they can train more Japanese soldiers to take the US marines place, develop and build more weapons on their own effectively keeping the money in Japan. The US military being in Japan is as much a geopolitical and military advantage to America as it is Japan, why should Japan pay for that advantage to the US!?

Until the end of time, that is unless you want to infringe on peoples rights and violate the 2nd amendment.

and I assume that the 20,000+ gun related deaths in the US every year is worth it so as long as people rights arent infringed. US homicide rate per capita is 5~10 times higher than any other 1st world country meaning your 5 times more likely to be murdered in the US that any other . Does this mean American are far more homicides than any other 1st world country or is there something else

Trump should ensure that these companies do indeed build a percentage of their cars in the USA.

over 70% of Japanese cars sold in the US are made in the US what more does Trump want. Japan should demand at least half of all Iphones military equipment sold to Japan should be made here also, maybe American beef farmers can start growing cattle here also.

The individual that didn’t secure the firearm properly.

humans make mistakes always will so while weapons of death are easily available the slaughter will continue.

Its it strange that countries with low or restricted gun ownership have far less gun massacres as those that do.

The remedy to firearm violence is clearly more firearms, more thoughts, and more prayers.

cant help but think of a revolving door meat grinder when it comes to gun violence on the US, just keep feeding in the students and theyll get mowed down on the other side, more tears more sole searching but nothing meaningful ever done , all in the name of the 2nd and an outdated ideology
