Communist China's political stance is one of the worst cases without doubt. Thus, PM Abe's cabinet condemns President Xi's policy, though it's in less harsh tone. That's not that bad as Washington concerns. Japan should take its own stance because she isn't the part of the Commonwealth or a subordinate of the US.

That's Taro Aso's way! He's an attractive congressman. His way of talking even in this kind of ironic remarks prompt smiles among audiences. The sad truth is that people who read his comments in written forms misunderstand him.

Japan will allow the reopening of parks, museums, libraries and some other public facilities, even in areas with a relatively high number of coronavirus infections, a senior government official said Sunday.
I've been craving for using public libraries to return books I rent, and also to borrow books I reserved online.
The government will release a set of guidelines on how to resume social activities on Monday, when it will formally decide to extend the state of emergency, likely by around a month.
It's necessary to resume social activities to some extent on the highest alert.

Osawa also wrote that the university is "controlled by the authoritarian Chinese Communist Party."
Apparently, OSAWA Shohei referred to not the ethnic group, Chinese but the nationality, Communist China(aka PRC).
I can't agree with him more. Communist China utilizes the technologies of Japan, the USA and other countries to strengthen their military, and has been expanding(or is trying to expand) their territories to the outside such as Spratly Islands, Paracel Islands, Senkaku Islands, etc. We should see the reality. Communist China invaded Tibet, Xinjiang Uighur, Inner Mongol after WWII. They're now preparing for cyber wars, outer space wars and . AI technology can be applied to any kind of weapons and warfares. We should be more careful about PRC as well.

Japan's justice minister has said Ghosn's escape from his trial could constitute a crime.
I don't think the translation by Thomsom Reuters is correct.
NBC reported :
"It is clear that we don't have any records of the defendant departing Japan, hence we believe that he left Japan illegally," Mori said.
Japan's Justice Minister, MORI Masako is a qualified attornery in Japan. So, she's definite about Mr. Carlos Ghosn's unlawful immigration.

…He advised all foreigners to leave.
It's overly exaggerated. Both a detention as well as a fugitive occur on one person is almost none, or one of them is as well. The detention system and the interrogation without an attorney could be serious problems on some cases. However, I feel that Ghosn and his French lawyer in Lebanon have been trying to deter people's eyes from his suspected frauds, and agitate international opinions by linking to human rights, and leading to chipping away his charges.

Incumbent Tsai's reelection as Taiwan' President is favorable for democratic countries in East Asia. President Tsai knows that Japan would be the key country for Taiwan's security. She asked Japan to do so as it was during 1895-1945. No one thinks Taiwan will be the part of Japan again, though. The Taiwanese(Don't call them Chinese. Taiwanese get angry) missed Japan's governance because Chiang Kai-shek and KMT's governance was too awful and cruel.

former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn is unlikely to stand trial in a real court,
So, Japan does not have 'real' courts. Yuk! Yuk!

After all, Ghosn abandoned eveything in France and Japan. I sympathize with the state of his detention. However, he should have contented with prosecutors in Japan. No one listens to the fugitive's excuses to distract people's attention from his misconducts.

For President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, it must have been a good opportunity to please its imperial countries, both Communist China and Japan. It was such a useless meeting.

Domestic matter? Xi Jinping, are you kidding? Communist China has too many issues since it invaded Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia and Tibet after WWII. They should be freed. Northeast part of its proclaimed territory, aka Manchuria, as well. Those're not internal affairs but INTERNATIONAL affairs. International community shouldn't allow Communist China's expansionism.

It's because of the difference between Australia and Japan on moral education at home as well as in society. Since rape and murder are felonies, they shouldn't be treated like misdemeanors. This is the good opportunity for Aussies to learn from Japanese about ethics.

Considering the number of test-takers, which is well over 500,000 students every year, it has been unavoidable to opt for multiple-choice format tests up to now. Essay questions are much better ways to evaluate students' understanding levels without doubt, though. Japanese government doesn't need to make haste to solve this trade-off issue.

I wonder why SK hadn't been responding to calls from Japan for the last three-and-a-half yrs. SK's excessive appeasing policy to NK, exporting petroleum by ship-to-ship cargo transfer against the UN security council policy, etc.…overall, Seoul is suspicious!

Every time South Korea and its ppl express their anti-Japan emotion, they're shown as if a pampered kid is whining. Thier illogicality as well as ignorance on history are getting to be known worldwide litte by little. First thing that Seoul has to do is to revamp their history textbooks which are full of fantasies. Without doing that, the rest of the world will continue igoring them.

Where is the SK heading for? Would they like to be swallowed by NK? They might miss the poor old days when Joseon Dynasty was completely controlled by Qing Dynasty as a client state. Why don't Japan and the USA let SK be?
