    What's so special about tobacco?

    I'm $ure you know what'$ $o $pecial. But, at the end of the day, tobacco companie$ can't force people to buy their product$. It'$ down to the individual, and any idiot nowaday$ know$ $moking i$ not good for you. You want to $moke it, then you pay for your own medical treatment, becau$e you'll get an illne$$ that would have been totally preventable.

    Among other things, Abe better tell Xi to do something about all that illegal construction work in coastal areas.

    As if China is about to listen to a minion of the US empire.

    However, the woman teacher apparently told no one else at the school and has been on sick leave since the suicide.

    Yeah, I bet she is. I saw the comment she wrote in his book on TV. She probably can't look at herself in the mirror.

    This is a horrible way to go. And the comments by some of the posters before were disgusting.

    Who cares if he is 無職. There are plenty of people out of work, but they're not sickos.

    I dont like cats because the eat the birds and some other scarce wildlife,

    This is what happens in nature. They're cats - it's part of their nature, unlike humans who kill for fun or some perverted reason.

    No candidate so far has gotten the crowds of Donald Trump today at his rally in Phoenix

    Half of them went there to take a look at his hair. The other half were paid to go.

    Thank god nepotism will no longer run in his family.

    And bringing up his grandfather doesn't do anything - Kishi should have been tried properly, but instead, since the Americans were so obsessed with getting one up on the communists, not only let people like him and those directly connected to the slaughter of innocent people off, but let them go on to become leading politicians.

    Instant ramen is nothing to be proud of - more than 15g (I've seen 29g before) of palm fat in one serving. That's too much of a rather unhealthy type of fat. Go for the real ramen instead.

    I'd go for shinkansen and it's safety and comfort as something to be proud of. And electronic bidets (and no, washlet is not an English word - it's bidet - for both men and women).

    Were automatic ticket gates really invented in Japan?

    Tessa:

    Ironically, the "Japanese" inventor of instant ramen was actually Taiwanese.

    Not only that, I heard that the blue LED light was actually invented by an American (who happens to have the same name as Nakamura).

    Don't tell me, the magazine has been bought by a Japanese company. Like Monocle magazine (and a certain other website I can't mention).

    This is crazy. I've visited a popular Japanese garden in Tokyo, and sometimes they have some Japanese clothes on display. There's a platform where visitors can stand and put those clothes on to have their photo taken in full view of everyone else. Nobody has complained.

    juan carlos:

    Is easy, put a japanese traditional clothes exhibition... then add some chinese and korean communities... Nationalism roots evoked... racism made!!!

    This has got nothing to do with Chinese, Korean or nationalism. Stop stirring it.

    Japan supported South Korea's bid to get the Baekche Historical Areas registered without any comment,

    Well, I don't recall reading anything about Japanese slave labour in Baekchae, so I can't think of any reason why Japan would be against it.

    nostromo:

    what many Japanese consider to be 'cool' is simply childish outside Japan.... fluffy toys, meaningless mascots and AKB48 lolitas don't really translate in the real world..

    EXACTLY!

    I think the Japanese government has been very active in pushing the image of 'Cool' Japan - almost as well as their pushing their right-wing ideas and forcing people abroad to rewrite history. The problem is, in both cases, the subject. I can be the best salesman in the world, but if all I'm selling is mouldy bread, then I'm not going to get anywhere.

    No mature person is going to be interested in big fluffy toys. You're just attracting the outcasts.

    Have a look at Japan's neighbours. China is sending out serious students who actively engage with the world, they're setting up institutes where people can learn about Chinese language and culture and is a major destination for students and tourists, despite obvious problems within the country. South Korea somehow managed to create a mega one-hit wonder, Psy, and there are plenty of female groups which consist of women acting like women, not some 8-year old Lolita-type girl.

    Asking foreigners what they like about your country day in day out doesn't get you anywhere. Try asking them what they DON'T like, think about it and acknowledge it.

    Was it 4-0 within the first 15 minutes???!!!!!

    I bet it felt like Germany-Brazil 2014 all over again! Even China didn't whipped that badly by USA. If some of the posters think that Japan will Japan, a simple 'I think Japan will win' suffices so I don't have to get the eggs ready. I hope all the players get plenty of rest now.

    It has been very good for Tokyo real estate.

    Yeah, real good, considering the mainland Chinese are the only ones who can afford it!

    papi:

    I don't see what's the point of this poll is, other then trying to validate Japan is still superior and still loved by foreigners. Pathetic poll really, if you consider this is enough to smooth over Japan's insecurities.

    Of course most here would choose Japan, but then considering this website is under a certain new management, I'm not surprised they had to resort to these sort of 'feel-good-factor' polls. What next, do you like natto?

    moonraker:

    Many "native" Taiwanese felt better off under the Japanese.

    Sure, the aborigines were treated 'very well' by the Japanese invaders, as well as by what you call the 'natives'. Seeing how the Ainus were practically wiped off the face of Japan, I can really understand how the Taiwanese aborigines were pampered.

    A person has no choice about their race, please don't compare the two.

    Why on earth would anyone want to choose to be gay if they then have to face the risk of being physically and verbally abused, spat upon, murdered, tortured, discriminated against, thrown off buildings and basically made to feel sub-human. Nobody would want that. Assuming you're not a self-hating closet-case, please tell me when you decided to be straight.

    This is exactly how I've felt about many franchises, like Terminator, Alien and Halloween. They really should have stopped them at the right time. But I gue$$ there'$ a rea$on why they didn't.
