European countries that accept refugees have reasons. They exploited them in the past as their colonies. From similar reasons, Japan should accept more from other asian countries.

Is America serious about this? It may only be a gesture. We are not expecting much from Obama's America.

The problems have been pointed out repeatedly for many years without much improvement. In Japan things do not change quickly. Maybe people do not like changes and tend to stick to traditions. While in America, when people think it is good, they do not lose time to make a change. When they find the change did not bring a good result, they change again. They are always busy and live in an unpredictable society. I think Japan must learn from America more. For example, when I was working in an American company in Tokyo, American workers showed surprises when they founda Japanese women cleaning men's toilet. They said in America, women cleaning ladies do not work in men's toilet. It was very much edifying for me.

Among Japanese construction companies, some still keep the company names at the end ...."kumi" or "gumi" the same as yakuza groups have their names.

It is difficult not to find leeches in any country of the world. In this mad world, there are only winners and losers.

Too late. China already have an airfield on the reclaimed islands.
SchopenhauerNov. 03, 2015 - 07:57AM JST
Essence of this problem is that Japan cannot protect the country without keeping U.S. Forces in Japan. Peace constitution of Japan incapacitates Japan to have a military to defend the country well enough. Changing the constitution is difficult. While, withdrawal of U.S. Forces from Japan may materialize from financial reasons. Dwindling Japanese economy is making Japan difficult to afford the costs of keeping U.S. Forces in Japan. U.S. Forces may withdraw from Japan when they have to pay more for the defense of other country.

The two countries plus Korea lost a lot of economic chances wasting time in futile auguments on historical issues by political leaders. Confrontations bring no goodness.

I am a Japanese but there are many things I cannot understand about the phenomenons of Japan and this is one of them. Maybe we are not very much original people and jump to anything which they think interesting and copy them without deep thinking. Some remain and some disappear.

Thank you very much for your information. But, move of money in one's bank accounts will become known to the tax office and if it is a move of big money, it will be questioned by the tax office when it becomes necessary for them to check..

The government's purpose is to increase tax revenues cracking on tax dodgers. In the end, they plan to connect My Number to individual bank accounts. If a person who's income is small and not paying tax but if he or she has a lot of money in the banks, they will have to pay taxes or their social security payments will increase and some lose or ther social benefits reduced. I wonder the social security number in America is connected to people's bank accounts and the tax office can check individual bank accounts? Please let me know if it is or not. People are rumoring they withdraw money from banks and keep the money somewhere in their houses (tansu yokin).
