Posted in: Japan seeks to have vaccine passports accepted by over 10 nations See in context

I question whether the J government understands the purpose of the vaccine passport enabling international travel going both ways. OR is it just something they see going on overseas and is trying to emulate without understand the true purpose.

The resumption of flights to Vietnam highlights Japan’s demographic aging and the economies reliance on cheap foreign factory workers aka technical trainees.

Posted in: Japan's business confidence hits three-year high: BOJ See in context

The Japanese people have seen no benefits. Abenomics is a big joke with money printing endangering the financial future of the nation. Abe knows nothing of economics as he's too focused on his family legacy, Constitional revision. The bigger the mountain, the deeper the valley.

Posted in: Another Japanese celebrity claims discrimination in France; netizens not so sympathetic See in context

Patrons in Japan never greet their servers which I think would exasperate the situation. Any time you enter an establishment in Europe, it's good manners to greet the staff. Japanese rare do this. Don't think it was racism either as the French are like this to everyone, particularly non French speakers.

Posted in: Abe faces battle on reforms despite big election win See in context

Abenomics is a joke. The only reforms we've seen from his administration are the interpretation of the constitution and the secrecy laws. With the record low turnout, i don't see this election as a fresh mandate but rather a waste of hLf a billion dollars for self perseveration. He a bot-chan. He's not interested in biting the hand that feeds him.

Posted in: Concerns growing within ruling party over weak yen See in context

What do you expect when your export business account for only 15 % of GDP. The weak yen has only helped the large multinationals which generate revenues overseas with repatriating profits. Corporate Japan! This government has no idea and is digging a deeper hole with all the printing and asset purchases. Artificially propping the markets with ReIT and ETF purchases. When Kuroda eventually will tapers due to BOj and JGB credibility issues, watch out DOOM day!

Posted in: Suga says Japan will keep on whaling, despite resolution See in context

I might agree with Japan if people were actually eating it. I can only assume some corrupt officials pockets are getting fat and this sham is to spite the west. Waste of tax payers money and puts a negative light on Japan.

The teams potential might have been reached and is considering jumping ship. This announcement is a bit quick though and might come off as insensitive.

Posted in: Japanese fans drown sorrows after World Cup exit See in context

The Japanese media were too optimistic to the point of setting unrealistic expectations for the Japanese public. Either way they tried their best.

Shame. 18 and 19 year olds are no longer kids and the fact that it was multiple incidences implicates the malicious nature. Ok maybe not prison but I hope something is done.

Can't believe they call themselves a research center. There are over a dozen things that could be done e.g. corporate governance and deregulations just to name a few. Hiring babysitters is NOT going to cure Japan's economic problems. Pathetic

Posted in: Japan, fresh from Australia pact, says U.S. trade talks difficult See in context

No surprise. Japan wants their cake and eat it too. Too many long established vested interests. As the third largest economy with so many multinationals it's a shame as their is so much potential. Apparently tradition in Japan means no change.

Posted in: IMF cuts Japan growth forecast; issues warning over Abenomics See in context

Abenomics's allure stemmed from long awaited structural reforms. QE and dismal fiscal spending is far from enough to pull Japan out. The Japanese equity market is limp along with quality demand side inflation. It's no surprise as foreign investments flee

I read a lot about how Japanese food and autos are superior to that of overseas. I'm not arguing whether that's true nor accurate but if that was, why not open up the markets? Let the consumers decide!

Posted in: No. of suicides drops below 30,000 for first time in 15 years See in context

Suicide is not on the decline. In Japan, a suicide is only a suicide upon examination by a medical examiner aka a doctor. Otherwise, it is not. The reported cases of suicide is inaccurate due to the over burdened healthcare system. Either way, it's very sad.
