The standard Flu shot is 2.500yen and NOT covered by health insurance, you pay cash for it.
3.000Yen might be for the combination shot.
Hong Kong Flu can be nasty, it spreads across Europe and Africa often.

Good to hear.
Considering that the SS is harping on how Japan must uphold the law and rules.
Many posters here and online they get an exception because of their love for an animal or other. News, the law applies to everyone equally.
Countdown till we hear how Japan bribed/influenced the court in the USA.

Oh, my a shortage of soggy slop fries at McD due to a strike in the USA.
I think they are as much potato as Pringles, give me some proper fries even if it would cost a tad more.
I stick with Mos and Burger King as they also got Onion Fries.

How much to you pay per channel apart from the 2 NHK ones?

I NEVER watch NHK, get my news from other channels and sources.
Those other channels are privately owned/financed/sponsored so adding bilingual might not be worth it. MX-TV does have a fair share of overseas programs/shows though, just switch the sound channel.

J-TV offers a wide selection, I tend to skip most Variety programming though.
Many good and successful J-Drama that are hits overseas and being remade in Korea(Jin, etc).
I don't know which stations uses still analogue displays for weathers, etc most if the reports I see are high-tech.

Soka Gakkai has no monetary motives.
They don't charge anything, volunteer and publications funded.

They interviewed a lot of people on the wide shows that didn't because they got snowed in, etc.
Many areas if Japan are struggling with heavy snowfalls this winter and voting was a low priority for them.
Winter elections have a tendency to be lower attended, especially in December which is a busy month for many.

Non american countries had terrorist attacks for centuries and millennia. 9/12 wasn't even one with the heaviest losses.
I grew up with many PLO attacks in my hometown and we live far from Israel/Palestine.
I hope this ends soon with minimal loss of life.

So what does komeito stand for? What is their platform?
How are they pushing their form of Nichiren Buddhism?
And how can Abe push Shintoism unless he rewrites the current Japanese constitution which separates church and state?
Like I said Abe is all talk and hot air.
Answer me those questions?
