Posted in: Bill to amend law on Constitution revision referendum likely to pass Diet See in context

Assume if Japan can revise the 9th amendment, then how can Japan feed and maintain its armies?

- Reserves for resources are poor as Japan is an island nation with no strategic systems of supply chains like the BRI.

- Japanese population decline is unstoppable. No young people fighting for Japan soon.

- Japan has no answer to Chinese and Russian supersonic-to-hypersonic missiles that are capable of hitting all American bases and JSDF bases.

- Japanese economy declines worse by each year as living standards go down for every Japanese individual. No morale with people on an empty stomach!

- Japanese talents are draining fast as all educational facilities and research institutions are falling behind. Japanese universities barely appear in the top universities of the world, while China has many of them. Of course, Japanese youngsters refuse to learn useful STEM skills as well as any international skill (foreign languages for example).

- Japanese politicians are godly incompetent and don't know how to govern or have any plan for the future. The young Koizumi made up a number on climate change and didn't actually know anything about environmental science. Japanese elders in the bureaucracy don't even know how to use computers!

US Auto Sales in April 2021, Asian Brands

1) Toyota/Lexus : 224,386

2) Hyundai/Kia/Genesis : 160,676

3) Honda : 148,538

4) Nissan/Infiniti : 102,800

5) Subaru : 65,726

6) Mazda : 31,991

7) Mitsubishi : 10,163

If China never gets troubled by American dealership systems as well as national security excuses, most of the American cars would easily be Chinese by now.

Hyundai and Kia are pretty impressive.

@mmwkdw sorry to burst your bubble but Japan's judiciary is ranked equally with USA and is far better than judiciary of countries like France, Germany, Japan Judiciary is not as bad as you think. In-fact far from it. Sure it isn't perfect but it's not bad at all.

From your speech, it's clearly that you're never in the US.

If Nissan is ever saved from bankruptcy, then it is always the Japanese government footing the bills. The Japanese taxpayers pay the bills.

Really? Then when are we going to start seeing arrests of Taiwanese executives in Japan since FOXCONN owns 65% of SHARP? Someone has been reading too many John Grisham novels.

There is an Asian favoritism bias in the Japanese bureaucratic world - mostly towards Taiwan. Taiwan is a critical ally of Japan, so Japanese bureaucrats let it slide because it is far more disastrous to see a weak and poor Taiwan being vulnerable for the absorption under the hands of the CCP.

If any Taiwanese firm wants to buy a Japanese core business tomorrow, Japanese bureaucracy will allow it.

Shoei Kisen Kaisha, which interestingly is a wholly owned subsidiary of Imabari Shipbuilding,

The Egyptian fine is larger than 1/3 of the revenues of the whole Imabari group, and this does not account for the measly small profits since shipbuilding is extremely low in profits and expensive. There is no way that Shoei Kisen Kaisha can afford to pay the fine.

Soon, China will counterfeit it too.

"All hail foreign ownership!"

Japan pretty much created its own downfall anyway. Foreign owners will finally start moving things around for the better. Look at Sony, foreign owners forced positive changes where Sony focuses on creating good gaming devices instead of Sony rice cookers!!

Don't get drunk on an economic bubble! That's the lesson that all nations can learn from Japan.

Posted in: Cultural Affairs Commissioner criticizes Japanese music, angering many See in context

Criticizing and crucifying any person for speaking the truth = ONLY IN JAPAN!! WAO RYOU!!

The problem with breaking Japanese musicians abroad isn't the quality of Japanese musicians. The problem is the insularity of overseas audiences, who want everything sung in English and sounding just like their own popular music. We've already seen too much African music processed and spat out so it sounds just like London or LA, and more commercially the Eurovision song contest used to have much more genuine local colour and flavour in the music (believe it or not!) before it became just a great big glitzy dancefest. Personally, I can't see the point in defining Japanese, or any other non-Anglo, acts as "successful" if in order to achieve that they're just going to sound like the product of any studio, anywhere.

South Korea proved this wrong.

Japan has always been under a permanent recession (Ultra Great Depression) since the 1990s. Now, Japan got an extra whammy of recessions from the Covid-19 and Abe's 2019 tax hikes.

Tencent is an atom of the global M&A drive from the CCP.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. plan to keep watch on Rakuten after Tencent investment See in context

What did I tell you guys here many times over?

China infiltrated pretty much all of Japan at this point, thanks to the bubble collapse and forced neoliberalism on Japan in the 1990s. Japan dropped all of its protectionist defenses and socialist elements of the economy for the entry of the American style of capitalism. Foreign ownership soars through spectral companies, like the one that Tencent uses, except for Americans and Europeans are more numerous than Chinese for now.

If the US was serious about fighting against the CCP, then they should have not destroyed the Japanese economy permanently to appease hungry vulture funds and greedy investment firms. The consequence of Japanese entry into neoliberalism is the cracking of protectionist barriers for the CCP creeping inside fast. The US refuses to fill up the holes in Japanese protectionist barriers because Western investment firms haven't done pillaging and dominating Japan yet.

It's time Japan made a break from the US regime. No need to declare war but no need to have US troops occupying Japan either. Kick them all out! Economically speaking, China is much more important.

See what happened to Yukio Hatoyama when he tried to expel Americans from Okinawa.

The same thing will happen but much worse if anyone dares not to use the USD for transactions. See Iraq and Lybia.
