Posted in: Emperor appears concerned Olympics could spread COVID: official See in context

It’s very unusual for the Imperial Household Agency to share with the general public what the Emperor feels about a sports event. Maybe someone in the Agency is trying to use him for political reasons.

Good. We won’t have to see her tired, bloated face on TV, at least not for a while. Take a good rest, Governor.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea divided over wartime history, Fukushima water release See in context

Many Japanese are getting sick and tired of this difficult neighbor. Maybe social distancing should apply to nations too. Keep your distance: the less you have to do with Korea, the better.

I would like to correct one inaccuracy in the article. Japanese pensions are paid bimonthly, not monthly.

Posted in: Criminal complaint filed over Sri Lankan's death at immigration facility See in context

It seems like human rights activists are having a field day. They paid all the legal expenses for the Sri Lankan woman as well as arranging for her funeral. You’d have to pay at least ¥3 million to have that kind of funeral in Japan. Where did all the money come from? And now they’re considering a criminal complaint. Vultures.

It must have been a terrible ordeal for the young women. Glad she’s out of it unharmed. Confined in a small space for more than a day, did they have access to a bathroom?

Posted in: American father, son to go on trial for helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

The Japanese prosecutors have a 99% conviction rate because they only indict cases where they’re sure of getting condition. They just drop cases they can’t win no matter how heinous the crime is.

Governments in other countries protect domestic companies specializing in key, sensitive technologies from falling into the hands of foreign vultures. Is that shocking news?

Posted in: LDP lawmakers seek emergency clause for constitution to deal with crises See in context

There’s no need to amend the constitution just to add an emergency clause to it. Enacting a special legislation for emergency would serve the purpose. The government’s first priority is to stop wasting time and concentrate on scrapping Article 9, which bans armed forces, and Article 76, which bans courts martial.

Posted in: Scholar learns remains of Tojo, other war criminals scattered in Pacific See in context

This reminds me of the way the Bolsheviks disposed of the remains of the tsar and his family after the Russian revolution. They have no respect for the dead.

Though lacking in real serious mental health treatment, Japan has many fewer cases of murder than other developed countries .

One look at the photo and you can see why those sexual minority groups cannot expect much support from the general public.

Posted in: Ghosn's lawyers say client happy after days of French probe See in context

Ghosn said he had ‘much more confidence in the French legal system than the Japanese system.” So if the French court found him guilty, would he be happy to go to a prison in France?

Posted in: Nishimura says TPP to start talks on UK joining pact See in context

Britain left the EU after a national referendum and years of tough negotiations with the EU countries. Now the country is joining the TPP and ready to hand over part of its sovereignty to the trade organization. What’s the point?

Some posters don’t like it when something is done well in Japan. Pathetic.

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations at workplaces on June 21 See in context

Before getting yourself inoculated, you’d better remember that the vaccine makers are totally exempt from any damages or side effects that might be caused by these untested vaccines. The J gov has promised to pay compensation in case of death, but the burden of proof is on victims’s families. You’re a brave man if you still want to get a shot.

Posted in: Japan extends state of emergency for Tokyo, 8 other areas to June 20 See in context

Many of the usually quiet and obedient Japanese people will find another 20 days of SOE intolerable. Even a worm will turn. I bet there’s going to be some sort of rioting or mass disobedience movement.

He’s aged! He’s lost almost all of his hair. Life in exile must have stressed him out. Come back to Japan, Carlos, and face trial. Chances are you’ll be convicted with a suspended sentence.

Now that almost all Olympic venues and facilities have been completed or refurbished, at least major construction companies couldn’t care less if the games will go ahead or be canceled. They’ve already been paid for their construction work.
