Here come the hoards of Chinese tourists. This will, of course ONLY result in a boost in the economy in Japan, and definitely NOT increase Covid numbers.

There’s no way corporate corruption exists in the perfect country of Japan.

The truth is that Taiwan was a independent free republic nation before Japan colonized it for 50 years and ended its sovereignty.
Why should Taiwan trouble Japan? Does Japan want to colonize Formosa again?
You guys live so in the past. That all happened over 70 years ago.
I often meet my Taiwanese colleagues and I having been raised in the West, asked them about Taiwan's colonization openly over dinner one night. There were some negative aspects as with all forms of colonization but they said that living standards, education, population, infrastructure and standard of living improved greatly. They ended the night saying "The past is the past!!"
Once the LDP stops going annually to Yasukuni to honour the 14 convicted (by the World court no less) Class-A war criminals, then Japan itself could be considered as having can stopped living in the past.

Whilst also inviting over the evil Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his oil, training the Myanmar Junta, trying to keep the gas project going with lovely Russia, all of the J corporations still doing business in the latter two countries, and so on and so on. Knowing to not fear losing political power, as the general public will always keep them voting for them. No shame, no morals?

Glad I don't live in China
yet the j-gov just started allowing free entry of all Sinovac-vaxed foreigners, just to boost the economy and their own popularity.

Concerning in that Japan will be opening its borders to this Sinovac-immunized country, which will probably lead to an 8th wave.

Who in the right mind would want to come to the country with the most Covid cases in the World for the past month?
-15 ( +24 / -39 )
Kishida-san’s led LDP is the best in the World…at highest # cases per capita:
thus of course its staffers are now all becoming infected. Rest assured though that there’s no need to worry as all of them also ride the packed Yamanote everyday like the rest of us.

They did not say the nationality of the man. But the rule of thumb is if they omit the nationality, it is a foreigner.
you have it completely backwards. They always write if it’s a foreigner (easy to blame), and make it sound more ambiguous when it’s a national.

Trout, Rendon, and a possible record breaking contract for Ohtani would push them into the luxury tax. The rest of the club would have to be minor league players.
Based upon their current record of 39-55, it seems like the rest of the Angels are already playing at the minor league level.

At the extremely slow pace that they loaded him into the medical helicopter, it appears that he most likely is deceased.

of Course he does as he can take those back alley payments in lowly ¥, and cash out later if the Japan’s economy ever recovers. Not a bad bet, as j-gov/BOJ artificially will ensure that he doesn’t lose money.

At almost ¥20,000 for a single shirt, you’d expect at least silk rather than cheap rayon in the manufacturing.

no way that’ll happen for how will the LDP leaders find their way to their favorite steaku houses?
