    Years back I went to the Bridge on the River Kwai, where as is typical of these types of places the J-tourists magically disappear...........

    Cant see this being shown in many theatres or for long here & yes I too wouldn't be surprised if a few loud trucks start barking non-sense in the vicinity

    This problem is rampant country wide, the amounts wasted are colossal in scale EVERY YEAR!!

    I would love to have my taxes lowered to reflect the thieving & pilfering that goes on here.

    As I have often said I figure between 20-35% of budgets for the various govt offices are wasted through inefficiency, amakudari, kick backs, wasting budgets, bid rigging etc etc

    I am pretty sure it would be EASY to cut the entire country budget by 20% easily, but alas it will never happen & we the people are paying the price when we should all have more $$$ in our accounts after taxes but NO!!! Truly disgusting!

    I voted NO because there was no choice for IT DEPENDS.......

    For the most part if companies go under, they should stay that way, THEN their competitors can pick up the slack, increase their business, hire more people, get stronger!! But the playing fields need to be level.

    In Japan we see time & time again when some company is on the rocks the govt practically tells back & the competition to bail them out/buy them............. THIS IS WRONG as it just makes banks/competing companies WEAKER instead of stronger & the process repeats & the whole economy gets weaker & more corrupt, this is truly a massive problem in Japan!!

    Now there are cases where govt assistance might be warranted BUT the stake holders in those companies MUST lose their shirts & NEVER get anything back if the company recovers, if they want back in BUY the shares again at the new price!!

    As it is now too many wall street types KNOW they can gamble & if they lose get bailed out THAT is point blank wrong & needs to stop, we see this type of BS in the west a lot & people are sick of it!!! Especially watching people in the US losing their homes meanwhile the scum bags who organized the mortgage scams were covered in too many cases!!!!

    I disagree with a lot of what republicans are for, but this blatant push to make it harder to vote is way way beyond disgusting!! Shortening early voting...........WTF!!!

    If the republicans want to do something why don't they work hard at getting all the dirty filthy $$$ out of US politics, its disgusting to watch, but hey they aren't interested in doing whats right only what will get them more votes or RATHER less votes for the dems

    The whole US election scene is one GIANT cesspool & the stink is getting worse over time, its sad watch you yanks divide yourselves, hint its NOT making you better, your country is getting worse, the US used to be able turn things around, fix things............ your losing that aspect, you should fix it!!

    daycare at work might work outside of big cities, can you imagine parents trying to commute with kids/babies during rush hours, that would be insane on many levels

    tmarie nailed it basically, work-life balance is awful for the majority in Japan, ESPECIALLY for women.

    Until Japan re-invents itself the rot will continue, until the locals realize the road they are on & THEY want to change it the ROT will continue.

    Sorry Laguarde just focusing only on getting more women into the workforce will solve ONE problem, but that alone will create MORE problems.

    A lot of Japans problems cant be tackled individually without making others worse and/or creating more problems.

    Like I have said about, time to re-invent or continue to rot, sadly the latter is unlikely to change until the rot stinks to god awful levels, thank goodness we don't have kids in this country, the future gets dimmer by the day!

    I am sorry but the Japanese people in this blurb DO NOT come across has having much knowledge or intelligence or common sense, no wonder Japan still to this day don't really have a clue or will admit what happened in the 1930-45 time period, just keep handing China that hammer on the platter & you will continue to be hammered!

    Japan DEAL with your history honestly & then tell China & SKorea to go pi$$ off..........is that really too much to ask!!??!!

    Apparently the answer continues to be yes, reap what you sow!

    I seem to recall DSpector got a little too vocal/opinionated in the mid-late 90s & the powers that be kept him off tv for a while until he was forgiven/groveled his way back on & since then he toes the line. I don't remember exactly what happed but I do remember he came close to being exiled if you will.

    Bottom line is it sounds like it SUCKS for all "tarento" , they have to put in their years until its their turn to do the bullying, its all pretty pathetic, but that's J-tv/entertainment & its why we get the crap we get, avoid as best you can because watching is bad for you haha!!!

    StormR,

    It was Japan who was the late comer to TPP.

    The yanks should hold firm with Japan & if Japan offers nothing, which is what it is doing now then Japan should be tossed from the TPP, no more screwing around. Then if Japan wants in IT needs to make serious offers regarding agriculture otherwise stick tot he sidelines.

    China is getting too big for its britches, the monster we ALL helped create in China may soon need to be put down because China simply CANNOT be honest with its own people it HAS to create problems with all its neighbours so it keep it locals from focusing too much on domestic issues.

    Like I have been saying China a fire cracker that has been lit, when will it explode/implode or BOTH, only time will tell.

    It will take a real miracle to keep China in line& MAKE it act like a responsible country, but I wouldn't bet on it!!!

    I try to avoid tv here best I can but the mrs watches so I am EXPOSED to it daily in small doses.........yuck mostly......

    95% of gaijin on tv throw dignity out the window from the get go, most must have nightmares when they sleep, they deserve it! The few who keep their dignity you don't see them too much as they aren't ""entertaining"" for the locals they aren't acting like panda's at Ueno zoo!

    I wish most of those who prostitute themselves on J-tv could find better work elsewhere, if there is a hell most of them will end up there & I will be waiting BUT my reasons for being there are different & much more fun!!

    At best this is a fall back deal for Australia if the TPP doesn't make progress or Japan gets tossed from the TPP , THEN they this for back up..............

    The auto industry down under is soon to be history so its easy for them to give up the duty on imports now.

    Japan has suckered Australia with their usual SLOWWWWWWWWWWW duty reductions, Oz agriculture will benefit some & they pray for TPP, if the later doesn't come to pass then now Australia is screwed as Japan will NEVER again agree to lower duty rates if the TPP doesn't pass.

    So in the end a few Big Biznesses will benefit, consumers much less so I suspect!

    Japanese rice is ok, certainly is BEST for certain J-foods, would be nice to have more choices readily available at reasonable costs!

    As Cleo said the usual J-rice is highly polished nutritionally VOID of anything good for you...... last batch I got polished I did so its genmai, I prefer that, more taste & at least some nutritional value.

    I also go for Thai 2-3times a month to get that lovely long grain stuff.

    Too bad most locals feel they lose a bit of their Japanese-ness if they try non-J-rice haha!!

    Korean-Americans are only able to get these memorials put up because & I have said this a million times before:

    Japan just doesn't deal/admit its own history well from 1930-45, IF Japan DID, its less likely these memorials would even be considered.

    And with idiots like this in overabundance in Japan:

    “We must stop disgracing our ancestors,” Nariaki Nakayama, from the opposition Japan Restoration Party, told a recent gathering of like-minded lawmakers in Tokyo who deny the military directly recruited sex slaves and instead used commercially recruited prostitutes.

    Japan looks set look bad for a long long time sadly!

    After reading about all this crap, to me, it looks mostly like a few pictures were used incorrectly, in error or perhaps something else ...............BUT I am not reading much in the way that is canning the research, so RIKEN, can you pls kindly tell everyone what the hell is exactly wrong here........

    To me RIKEN & the powers that be are coming off more daft than the researchers who did the paper or is it just me.......bizarre!

    Some interesting ideas overall.

    But in order for Japan to improve things on the home front I think the ENTIRE country needs to be re-invented, birth rate is but one part of many that are in dire need of fixing, the time is beyond ripe(Japan has been rotting for a while now!) for these changes, but the Japanese need to toss abe as he only thinks about devaluing the yen( a temporary assist) & then wants to change the constitution, frankly there are a LOT more pressing needs!

    BUT does the average Japanese see the need to change............... I think a few do & these people are increasing but very slowly............overall Japanese are a very fatalistic bunch I predict they will wait until they are really truly hammered, down & out on a massive scale before any real change has a chance & I wouldn't necessarily bet on the right changes being implemented unfortunately, sad to say but Japan seems doomed even though it could easily start making changes for the better it just WONT!

    sangetsu you nailed it!

    Japans non-tariff barriers are HUGE & prevalent everywhere if your paying attention!

    Japan only ALLOWS some imports in relatively freely, take grapefruits, Japan doesn't grow them so you can find imports in stores, but when it comes to apples Japan throws up all kinds of non-tariff barriers, THAT is what Japan does!

    But Japan is in decline & her power is fading rather quickly, NOW is the time for the rest of the world to tell Japan to change or pay the price, Japan has gotten away with this for decades, needs to end, we in Japan pay TOO MUCH for too many things, its a crime what J-govt & J-industry has & is doing to Japanese............. but like I have said many a time, until the average Japanese raises a stink then the locals will continue to be fleeced!!
