    Oh, my dog! How could this have happened? It is unforgivable to think a world leader on a visit to Japan didn't eat everything he was offered. I am not gonna be able to sleep tonight knowing there was sushi left over.

    Ok, just imagine for a moment that, many of us come from countries that don't play baseball. What the heck is pine tar and what does it do?

    Oh, yes! That is exactly how one burps a baby! Just smack them around the head until they burp! It works every time! Obviously, this woman is a professionally trained babysitter. Was she working for an agency?

    I've been there too. I even took photos of the resident right-wing thugs while they were giving me dirty looks. I guess I'll have to leave Asia altogether cos the Chinese, Koreans and the Japanese all hate me for being a normal tourist.

    Japan needs cheap imports to boost public spending, but to join the TPP they will also have to scrap their farmer subsidies and price fixing of rice and other produce. But, at the end of the day, Japan does need the TPP regardless of what the old boys club thinks. In the long run it well help reduce Japan's ever-expanding public debt by taking the reliance off the government to support farmers.

    Yeah, the whale population may be big enough to support commercial whaling, but they is no market to sell the meat, so it will never be viable. It's just a case of killing them because they are there.

    I've spoken to a lot of Japanese people about this and these statistics are pretty much inline with the response I got from people. The older generation said they had eaten it at school many years ago and the 30's generation said theyhad eaten it once or twice, but the teens to twenties said they had never eaten it and don't want to. The majority also stated that it is Japanese culture and they should be allowed to hunt whales. However, when I say, "but, nobody eats it, so why should they waste so much money on catching them?" I always get the same blank response and the conversation usually ends with the Japanese just claiming its different cultures. These statistics only come from a small group of people and it doesn't state which demograph they have surveyed. In a way, these statistics are positive. If only 10% of the population are eating whale meat fairly regularly there is no need for japan to continue its southern ocean hunt. There are ample stocks of whales in the oceans around Japan to feed the few that do eat it.

    In the states and Canada where they have larger amounts of bears and a lot more people going into their territories the attacks are a lot less. Does this mean the bears in Japan are a lot more aggressive or is it just the people are more stupid? Bears will usually only attack if they are startled or if they have cubs in the vicinity. If you are gonna go into area where you know there are bears you need to make as much noise as you can so the bear knows you are coming and they will run away. Even a large bell on your backpack is enough to get the bears on their way. It doesn't seem right that this bear was shot and killed because a man, who has probably lived in the area his whole life, didn't take any precautions against bear attack.

    Cwhite - I think you have the wrong idea. An American leader coming to Japan needs very high security. It only takes one right-wing nutcase, of which there are many, to jump out of a crowd and there would be a huge international incident.

    Back on topic: Let's hope the fool responsible gets his/her butt rightly kicked! The day before a US president comes to town he/she loses a list of pass codes? Are the clowns running this circus?

    The police commented that, “if only everyone could drive with such caution, there would be no accidents.”

    Stopping abruptly at an intersection is more likely to cause an accident, not prevent one. I'm sorry, but I think this woman has a few screws loose.

    No, Japan should not join. Japan has never made a free trade deal with any nation

    And that is why the economy is failing! Japan has to rely on imports for just about every sector of industry. It is their protectionist policies that have created the huge public debt. Until Japan gives up on subsidising industries to keep prices high (cultural price fixing) the economy will never recover. Japan needs to flood the market with cheap imports to increase consumer spending and create economic growth, instead of this stalled stale-mate that has been going on for twenty years.

    Way to go Abe! You just can't help yourself, can you? You are an antagonistic old fool and Japan and the rest of Asia is sick of your petty little mind games! Grow up or give up! Please!

    Hmmmm, nuclear reactors! The one mistake at Fukushima is gonna end up costing Japan nearly as much as it did to build all the reactors in the country. Yeah, Japan is hurting at present cos of their reliance on fossils fuels, but the thing that confuses me is, why isn't there a major push to conserve energy and to introduce renewables? It seems to me that, the government is just playing on these facts to gain public support for restarting the reactors. However, on the other hand, the lack of willingness by the J-Gov to join the TPP is also creating huge issues for the deficit. Japan needs to flood the market with cheaper imported goods to improve consumer spending and stop trying to protect their ages old subsidy system that created their huge public debt in the first place. The world economy has changed in the last 30 years, but Japan has not, hence the failing economy with no clear way out until they change their selfish policies.

    Not to self: Never take a contrasting agent for an X-ray in a Japanese hospital without questioning it first!

    This kind of rubbish should never happen in a modern hospital!

    Start with equal pay and follow it up with strict regulations and penalties for sexual harassment and prejudice within the workplace. That might entice women into the workplace.

    Posted in: It is urgent that Japan establishes a society where women shine. To do that, we have to boost measures to support households with children, and to build infrastructure to help women actively participate in society.

    So, do you think this has anything to do with Japan's announcement the other day to send 100 troops to an island near the their other disputed islands in the south?

    Hmm, could this be construed as a self-defense move or a provocative move? Personally, I think Japanese military is hoping China does attack them so they can go to war. They don't seem to be too interested in a diplomatic solution. Of they were, they would not be provoking China by setting up a Jorge military presence so close to China, would they?

    Eh? From my experience, AKB is very popular with middle-aged Japanese men, but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the music.
