It may make Japan more vulnerable to islamic terrorism to cooperate with France. The terrorism by islam comes from hate against christianity or western civilizations which colonized, exploited and looked down upon islamic people before. Japan has nothing to do with their history. Stay away from cooperations with France and other western countries that are the targets of islamic terrorism.

A wise move. We are not like Chinese or Koreans that impetuously repeat unproductive political anti-Japan campaigns.
For living people, keeping friendly relationship is more important than getting angry looking back into the past inciting hostile feelings.

It is good to avoid the suspects lie at the court helped by their corrupt lawyers claiming that they were forced to confess uncommitted crimes in interrogations.

Japanese people are increasing who do not take what Trump says at face values. Probably he is strategically acting and speaking to appeal directly to frustrated poor whites.

Japan is a country where national disasters hit people often. We have lived in such a place for long and it trained Japanese people. They became resilient and patient. What happened is happened "shikatanai." I think people of Kumamoto will come back soon.

This is a healthy idea and our way of Japan. Leave the unproductive jobs of demanding apologies to other countries to Korea and China.

Japanese government has never demanded an apology to America. We know it is unproductive. Our attitude is "We do not repeat mistakes" which is inscribed in the memorial stone in Hroshima.

America and Americans are very self righteous as much as arrogant - politically as well as individually. They are strong good and bad. They do not apologize to others or to foreign countries repeatedly.

I think John Kerry can become a fine president of America. Sorry, they have to choose from among unimpressive candidates.

Do American textbooks at their schools tell that the atomic bombs were used in Japan to put an end to the war soon? All Americans do not fail to say so when asked about the bomings. We Japanese do not believe the excuse they use as a primary reason. However. we do not do a rude thing like placing a statue of the victims in front of the American embassy in Tokyo.

In today's Japan, there is no day without a news reporting about the problems involving the aged people. While, I do not hear very much about the issue from America and other countries. How are they dealing with the problems?

I trust the Japanese justice systems and the police investigations. So, death penalties are OK in Japan. They are opposed to death penalties because the penalties are misused by dictators in undemocratic or underdeveloped countries in sloppy investigations. I apprehend in Japan, on the contrary, that the true murderers are released after t pleading innocent throughout trials. It is not they are released because they are innocent but because after 20 years and 30 years, reinvestsigations become technically difficult. Most of them are holders of police records before their arrests.

Foreigners who visited Japan in Meiji were greatly impressed by the decent Japanese people. Today, people became all greedy and it is difficult to find beautiful Japanese people. The western model of the capitalism world is facing serious problems today....globalism, profit first, gaps between the rich and poor, etc.

When Japan was fighting against America in WW II, Japan tried to abolish all English sounding imported words which were written in katakana. Now, Japan is changing their original words in conscious of English words to avoid misunderstandings. What a change. This tells characters of Japanese people. If it is in China, I dont think they will change their original words in conscious of English words.

Geographycally, the majority of the visitors to Japan may be from other asian countries. We have to keep friendly relationships with them. Abe-san, be nice to them.

Do not stick to non nuclear policy. This is a good chance, if Trump becomes a president, Japan to become a truly independent country without a foreign military in their land.

The situation is a lot easier in countryside than in Tokyo. In Tokyo, the population is still increasing and in Koto-ku area particularly, high rise apartment houses (so called mansions) are increasingly built. A result is a sudden increase of huge number of households and schools for their children and nurseries cannot catch up.

One of the reasons who oppose death penalties may be in some countries, the death penalities are misapplied politically to people who oppose the power of the countries. People don't have to worry about the Japanese justice systems.
