    It's not whether Japan wants it or not. It's whether foreign manufacturers wants to invest or not. In the 70's most of the famous foreign brands like Coke, Nestle, P&G,etc. took the dive and are now one of the leading brands within their industry. By the way the US automobiles were the largest imported brands in the 70's as well selling more then 400,000 units per year.

    Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc are all made at their host countries including various parts and conponents. Now how many foreign auto manufacturers have fatctories in Japan? A big fat 0 .

    All those manufacturers employ local people to help develop the local community. Now again how many foreign automanufacturers are hiring Japanese factory workers? Again a big fat 0 .

    The truth of the matter is Japan is the second largest music industry and gross sales second to the US.

    The Japanese pop singers are happy to be at their place in Japan and making it in the US is secondary to maintaining their fan base in Japan.

    As for talent, Taku Matusumoto already gain a Grammy and Hotei is a world acclaimed guitarist in which no other Asian had reached so far.

    They were neither unarmed or peaceful since they burned down public offices. As for your conservative number, where did you get it from? As always propaganda with inflated numbers to make it look bigger the it really was.

    By the way the figures I wrote are from Park Eun-sik's book he wrote recording the time. Some other interesting figures within the book, there were 159 police stations, 77 public offices, 15 post offices,17 houses, 47 churches and 2 schools that were burnt down. There were 46,303 people arrested, 4,026 were accused in which 3,967 were found guilt with the highest charge being three years in prison with 80 were found guilt.

    Too much exaggeration the death toll was 7,509 and it was not on a single day either. The protest eventually turned into a riot and police stations and other public offices were burned down that resulted in the Japanese police to retaliate.

    Basically it's like any other riots that happen all around the world.

    Well if you educate the truth it will relieve a lot of misconception that when Japan entered Korea, Korea was at the same level of civilization through out the nation as Japan which was not. Korea was a very backward nation still believing in superstition and witchdoctors. Had a very low literacy rate and life expectancy rate before Japan entered due to their then malevolent rulers and backward philosophy.

    The most scary thing is the possibility of Hatsune Miku still active 100 years from now.

    Boy talk about ignorant talking.

    Where did you get your information from a propaganda sheet from VANK?

    The literacy rate before Japan entering Korean peninsula was lower than 5% and usage of Hangul was mostly dead due to being a vassal state of China.

    As for Given names, Japan never forced any Japanese names to Koreans. In fact Koreans had been imitating naming their suzerain state and most present Korean names are actually based on Chinese like Kim(金), Pak(朴),etc.

    Yeah and "Global warming contrarian researcher investigated for not revealing funding sources" is the other topic of the day.

    http://phys.org/news/2015-02-global-contrarian-revealing-funding-sources.html

    Willie Wei-Hock Soon, with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) received approximately $1.2 million in funding over the past fourteen years from companies such as Exxon Mobile, the American Petroleum Institute and most heavily, Southern Company, one of the largest electricity producers (which relies mostly on coal) in the country

    Oi Ocha from Itoen is actually a staple at Silicon Valley.

    Thailand has a domestic brand of Green tea as well.

    Well Will Smiths renovated his toilet at his house placing an electric outlet just to furnish a Japanese high tech toilet.

    Well those high tech washlet type toilet seats are out of stock at most major electronic store in Shinjuku and Akihabara as the Chinese hordes had bought it all up. Many of them buy three of them at a time.

    On another note I heard stocks for TOTO had risen 60 points in just one day.

    This article doesn't report the most obvious reason why not to mix wasabi into soy sauce which is it ruins the fresh fragrance sting of wasabi as it exits the nose. Basically wasabi's strong sting is released as it mixes with air. If you drown it with soy sauce it inhibits this chemical bonding.

    Auhhh, occupation through force is never accepted by the world especially by the UN. Japan is not showing force because of Article 9 or the Koreans would have been kicked out a long time ago.

    I been to various trade fairs that had displayed this technology and talked with sales reps at the show stating the technology had been ready for about three years now and the only thing that is keeping them back is;

    1. Legislators

    2.Insurance

    3.General acceptance

    They say all three are rooted to the same cause and it will take a lot more time to change that perception starting with closed circuit display within private property like at a resort or large scale school campuses.

    A lot of people has no recollection of how history played out itself before and during the war and are all jumping to conclusions. Any debate on the Hull note?What about Potsdam declaration? How about Showa emperor's radio broadcast stating ”However, it is according to the dictates of time and fate that We have resolved to pave the way for a grand peace for all the generations to come by  enduring the unendurable and suffering what is unsufferable .”

    Lastly Japan does sternly ask that there should not be another Hiroshima or Nagasaki to occur in exchange of an apology since apologies does not bring back the dead.

    Posted in: How come Japan has never demanded an official apology from any U.S. government for the dropping of atomic bombs on two of its cities? In fact, why don't Japanese hate America for dropping the bombs?

    Tax on land is like anywhere else in the world based on property value and that value flucuate based on actual need and demad so there is no fixed amount of tax on any property.

    On way to get rid of land without paying the horrid price of demolition is to pay tax by payment in kind or give up the property at market value. In this case it would be the local government's problem and you had paid inheritance tax at the same time.

    The initial hot spot of the Hindenburg was not Hydrogen it was the paint on the hull of the blimp that ignited. It's well recorded. Hydrogen can be obtained by merely sticking in an electrode into water and connecting it to a solar panel or you can gain hydrogen through extreme heat. It's basically cracking the Hyrdogen-Oxygen molecular bond.
