I have to say I like the place. I go up to Goshikinuma in the fall every year and it's very nice country. That said, I can see how this would not go over well with most of the rest of the world.

Champagne-popping time! Just made my Christmas that much more special. Wonder if it's too much to ask that he take all the other xenophobic old fogeys wih him?

Not surprised at all. This kind of thing is widespread. If I were Obama, I'd tell them to go eff themselves as I have ascended higher than either of them and to stick their "apology" where the sun don't shine.. Racists spend all day apologizing for something they aren't sorry about.

I'll share what I hate about Christmas overseas (in Japan): it doesn't feel at all like Christmas. Very little real Christmas cheer to be found. Get back to work!

What he meant was: They don't have a problem with certain folks being discriminated against because they don't care. There, fixed it. No applause necessary.

I once heard a Japanese person describe his homeland as an ''innocence country.'' I took it to mean he believed they have never done anything wrong. I'm sure the majority of the country agrees with him and with the Abe government's stance on this particular issue.

I heard 'baka' a million times too. That company and its employees are history and Japan will be in the same position unless they get out of their gaijin-on-the-brain syndrome. Gaijin does not mean foreigner per se. It means a person who can never be like us; never be equal to us;never fit into our society; a person to be feared, not trusted, reviled, kept at arms length, etc. The young kids are being taught the same as the previous generations so I don't see anything changing anytime soon. My co-workers now don't get it either. Japan in a nut shell.
