Politicians say good things in campaigns but after the election, it is difficult to meet them without bringing money.

Shrine icon is OK but the temple icon looks more like a chinese temple. By the way, I find many foreigners do not know differences of shrines and temples.

What would be the effects of the amended constition like? Japan will not tolerate unreasonable threats of China and Korea and immediately send JSDF to the troubled areas to defend our original territories. We will build aircraft carriers and station them near Senkaku. Seized island of Takeshima by Korea must be taken back by force. JSDF ships will escort Hokkaido fishermen to fish in the sea area of our original territories of northern islands. When America needs our help, we will not hesitate to cooperate with them to keep the world order. In return, America must agree to Japan to build military industries and produce weapons and sell them to the world. Japan's foreign ministry and businesses will be very happy with this move while many will quit JSDF in fear of losing their lives.

Why protests about comfort women come so strongly from Korea and China while not very much from other countries such as Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand etc. where probably the imperial army did the same thing. I feel there are some other reasons or intentions China and Korea attack Japan behind the comfort women.

We want competent politicians though they may not be very clean. Abe and Amari are wheeler dealers who can handle difficult issues. DPJ government though they may be a littler cleaner than LDP proved they were incompetent. No more wimpy socialist government in Japan.

People want a strong leader at a time when they have anxieties about the future. Not a socialist.

Ishihara is a small potato compared with Amari. It is very regrettable that Amari had to resign. My question is why the executive of the construction company leaked the scandal to the Shukan Bunshun weekly magazine in which he played an important role.

Abe must clarify before people what are the problems of our constitution. Who feels inconveniences of the current constition and what is the inconvenience of the constition? I don't think the current constition prevents Japan from being a sovereign nation.

This subject becomes news too often on this site while most Japanese people are indifferent. Because we rarely eat dolphins and whales in today's Japan. Animal protection movement is OK as people love cats and dogs. No more than that.

Thank you for your information. I think the accidents happen often in local parts of Japan where they still live in old houses. New houses have sharper roofs.
SchopenhauerJan. 25, 2016 - 02:54PM JST
I wonder how people in snowy parts of the world handle the snow on the roofs. Do they have any good way to remove snow on the roofs without climbing onto the roofs.

When a country depends its security on other nation, there arises many difficult problems. We still suffer the results we lost the war. Okinawa has many U.S. bases, yes, but it is not necessarily unfair but because Okinawa was under the U.S. administration until The Okinawa Return in 1972.

Though it is not a good thing and he was careless but the money is small while he is one of the most competent minister in the government and did a good job in TPP. He does not have to quit. Japan's politicians are clean on the whole and became a lot cleaner than before.

What a self righteous attitude! What is the anti-Japan education in China? . What is their aggressiveness at Senkaku? What is their over reactions about Yasukuni? What is the Chinese government's attitude when anti-Japan demonstrations happened in China?

SchopenhauerJan. 18, 2016 - 04:25PM JST
I sometime feel respect for those who commit suicides. It is not an easy thing at all to terminate one's life by himself or herself. It is a supreme decision, if it is a rational conclusion. When people fear death too much, their lives become miserable.
SchopenhauerJan. 11, 2016 - 08:29AM JST
In a word, Abe thinks Japan has to change the constitution to make JSDF can fight in need. Recent relations with China and Korea helped increase his supporters. His supporters are feeling unrealistic about our peace consitition which says in Article 9 we have determined to preserve our security and existence, *trusting in the justice and faith of the peace-loving peoples of the world."
