How many Coastguard ship s have patrolling in Senkaku Islands’ water? Japanese Government must send more Coastguard patrol ships to Senkaku Islands' water. Communist Chinese Government will not reduce stalking on Japan because it is vital survival strategy for future of Communist party and Communist leaders. Majority of Chinese peoples will look for more freedom in social life and freedom from Communist Government controlling their lives. Communist Leaders knew it and they must prevent from Chinese young generation yearling for freedom by anti-Japan propaganda. Taiwan, S.Korea. Japan and its neighboring countries will face more provocation and stalking from Communist Chinese Government. The more money Communist Chinese Government has the more territorial dispute with its neighbors to come. You can not stop Communist leader’s behavior because everything they decide is right for them.
Japanese Government needs to prepare ready for everything unprovoked action from Communist China. Predicting Communist Chinese leaders is harder than predicting weather.

Japanese politicians should be aware of gambling addict destroy young diplomat career and damage Japanese diplomats' image abroad. How many Company's employees will be charging for committing stealing Company's fund if Casino was allowed to operate in Japan? In Australia, some top retailers were went to bankrupt from result of employees stealing millions of Company money to feed their gambling addiction habit and high-life style.
Japanese politicians must be balancing between income from Casino license & Tax and size of Japanese society damage by gambling. Casino will destroy good nature of Japanese society, integrity and peoples lives.

I can't believe some Japanese companies are still attracting to business opportunity in Communist China in such as bad situation between two countries. Their greed will be punished for them one day. I do not know how Japanese businessmen show their face in hostile environment. If their No.1 priority is money and then in the future they shouldn’t regret whatever happened to their investment in China. They shouldn’t ask Government for help.
New China free trade zone is just a fraud. It’s not free. Communist Government will intervene and meddle anytime after foreign investment was rolling in.

You have to give some credit to TEPCO.
How many earthquake above Shindo 5 and more hit Fukushima region since March, 2011?
They have tried at their best since earthquake and Tsunami disaster since March, 2011. This kind of nuclear disaster was never experienced in the past and no nuclear technicians will expect one of nuclear power plant will be double strikes by biggest Earthquake and Tsunami. This kind of natural disaster is beyond human control. The Japanese technicians have minimized the damage if look at Chernobyl disaster and compare type of disaster between Chernobyl and Fukushima. Technology and Design for both Plants were obsolete but Russia poorly contained disaster zone and plant. Fukushima can be worst than Chernobyl disaster by such as huge powerful Tsunami and Earthquake but TEPCO technicians have doing much better job than Russian technicians who have controlled in Chernobyl disaster. TEPCO is not innocent but that kind of natural disaster was beyond human control. I don't think there will be too much difference even if TEPCO had prepared for Tsunami because the earthquake and Tsunami were huge. You can record Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami natural disaster as top 5 natural disasters ever strike to earth in modern day history.
Some peoples think they much give maximum pressure on TEPCO and Government.
They should think about given credit to brave nuclear technicians who are trying to minimize spreading radiation and dismantling plant.
I believe now nuclear power technology is safer than before and the industry is learning and modifying design technology from Fukushima disaster. Peoples who strongly believe Climate change was contributed by human and CO2 and then nuclear power is only answer for them.

Stubborn stupid idiot Communist Chinese leaders will never back down their stupidity. US and Japanese Government need to draw their own strategy against Communist Chinese militarization in East and South China Seas and Asia-Pacific region. Japanese Air Force needs to re-enforce its own Air Defense Zone. Japanese Pilot should be shot down any Drone which entered into Japanese Air Defense Zone and manned Communist Chinese Planes and Fighter Jets should be giving warning and shot down if they do not obey Japanese pilot commands. Give the Communist Chinese leaders what they wanted. Communist leaders are thinking they will go to win the war and they can occupy Taiwan and Senkaku Islands if war broke out in region.

Communist Chinese leaders must rethink their International relationship strategy. China has made many enemies in Asia-Pacific region by declaring unrealistic its territory across the Asia-Pacific coastline and now latest provocation Air Defense Zone.
In reality, Communist China will never able to steal another country natural resource in its territory. The Communist Chinese leaders are naive to think other Governments in Asia-Pacific will accept quietly bully by Communist China. Most of countries in Asia-Pacific region are democratic country and they have closed relationship between democratically elected Governments. Communist China will be disadvantage in long run in region. Communist Chinese leaders must think about who is wrong and who is right by balancing on One Government vs. all Governments in whole Asia-Pacific region.
Communist Chinese Government ignoring all universally accepted rule and law of International society is very dangerous and risky for innocent peoples’ lives.
I believe Communist Chinese Government should be punishing by introducing sanction against Communist China instead of rewarding its bad behavior. Communist Chinese leaders are like bad rappers. The more they have money the more they will behave badly and bad for civilized society.
The rich Communist China is bad for whole Asia-Pacific region.

Some of negative comment here is missing vital point. I'm sure the prefecture's authority will check radiation contamination percent in rice before they ship to Palace. Otherwise, they won't be sending contaminated rice to Palace.
You must some credit to Government and local authority for their hard work for best result from the worst situation.

Well, I think now is real time to pull out all Japanese businesses from mainland China.
Communist Chinese Government’s silly war game will lead to arms confrontation between two countries above Senkaku Islands. Now Chinese military is itchy to test its new toy Stealth fighter with Japanese Air Force’s Pilots.
Communist Chinese Government’s thugs will target Japanese businesses. Japanese Companies have to leave China with empty hands. Japanese business community needs to balance between profit and risk of losing investment, technology and nation lost face by greed of Japanese Companies.
I hope Prime Minister Abe will warn Japanese Companies who have business interest in China and signed new agreement to technology transfer to Chinese Company.
If Japan has no trading with Communist China and then Communist Chinese Government can not bully Japan.
Communist Chinese Government is using Japanese investment in China as Japanese Government and Japanese peoples’ weak point. The more you invest in Communist China and the more you’re falling into Communist Chinese Government’s Honey trap.

“I decided to open my legs again to auction off my virginity and this time it will be for real. So those interested, men or women, can make their bids,” she said.
I don't blame her. The world is material world and $ 680,000 is a lot for this young woman. It will change her life in country like Brazil. Prostitutes and call girls get $ 50 - $ 1000. If she get $ 680,000 for her virginity and then good for her. However, sex for money is prostitution.

Always disaster aid will start with initial small amount of aid.
The Japanese Government does not know size of damage done by Typhoon Haiyan. So any Government will start with initiative smaller aid amount. It’s nothing wrong with that. Government will increase eventually once Government knew size of damage done by Typhoon.
If you give aid money more than it needed and then there will be unnecessary wasting and corruption within local aid distributors.
