    So is the Osaifukeitai like the Sony Xperia series if a nation is going to accept it and provide apps. No difference Smithy.

    Hong Kong's Octopus system can start tomorrow if they want to simply by providing the apps to the users.

    They are the same group that are protesting in Okinawa. Basically they are similar to hippies that follows a band or star at every concert around the nation exept they protest instead of lowering their undies.

    This must be so disappointing to so many, many people...

    Yeah, it must be a shock to people at Boeing and Airbus that they are not making airplanes since they don't manufacture their own engines. (Sarcasm)

    Massive government support and "level playing" are two starkly conflicting concepts.

    How about Russia, PRC and/or Brazil and their projects?

    Shinkansen nor the Maglev connects regional cities to other regional cities like Nigata to Fukuoka, Kanazawa to Kagoshima,etc. nor do they provide service to islands like Yakushima, Amami Oshima,etc. There are many tourists both domestic and from abroad heading to those area and is going attract more with these new Jets.

    Someone really can't accept the truth that Japan is luring more tourist from abroad. LoL

    For reference Tokaido Shinkansen runs 336 runs daily , have a daily ridership of 386,000 passengers or 141 million passengers annually and generates 999.5 billion yen in operation profit a year.

    Honda only has a business jet not a passenger airliner, both Russia( Sukhoi Superjet 100) has been in the market for the past two to three years and have sold 300 jets with 45 actually delivered. PRC (ARJ-21) had made her maiden flight in 2008 but still has not been able to obtain certification.

    The main competitors of the narrow body passenger jets has been Brazil(Embraer) and Canada(Bombardier) but their new models CSeries and E-Jet E2 family have not obtained their certification or delivery either.

    Basically it's a fairly leveled playing field with any player having a chance to obtain a peice of the market.

    It's privately funded so they wouldn't care what you say unless you are a stock owner of JR Tokai.

    For them it's a way to lower the amount of corporate taxation while investing to ensure future income since they will finish paying acqusition cost of the Tokaido Shinkansen line from the government when they privatised in the late 80's

    The more the Korean government tries to brush it off with these kind of antics the more the global opinion is going to become more critical to their actions.

    Really SK needs to wake up and smell the coffee and realize that they are only painting themselves further into a corner and as nigelboy states Sankei is at the front row center making a mockery of SK's every move.

    Between Kamiyacho and Kasumigaseki was the longest between stations for the Hibiya line. Don't know if it warrants a new station but it will defenitely be a god send for the people commuting to Toranomon Hills

    A private citizen and a government official are complete different standpoint with complete different responsibility. I really cannot understand you bring up up a private citizen's example as comparison.

    The President has responsibilities and accountability of her actions which she had not fulfilled, abandoned and trying to cover-up by abusing her executive power.

    If you want to make comparison it should be how the French media had covered President Hollande and his love affairs.

    NO BORDERS for public officials.

    That is just nitpicking evading the big question, does the government allowed to prosecute a news agency covering news, if so how is freedom of press ensured in SK?

    Choice of words and/or speculation by the writer has always been part of journalism and is part of freedom of press. The final judgement of writers, editor and publishers are handed out by the readers and not the government.

    I wonder if SK will just cave in or alienate themselves concerning freedom press?

    With Samsung's profit forcast showing a nose dive the SK economy itself is not going to last long and will require external intervention like the IMF crisis of '97 so will they have the luxury of revert back into a hermit nation?

    There is a difference wider then the Pacific between being sued and being indicted, former being a civil case and the latter being a criminal case.

    In S.Korea it seems as if justice is served selectively with creed and prejudice.
