Insurances for the results of landslydes exist as an option. I wonder how many opted for that.

I see relatively new houses in the disaster pictures. If they are still paying housing loans, they not only lose their houses but also have to continue to pay remaining loans for their lost houses. It is awful. The Japanese government does not help them. What happens in such cases in America?

Japan tried several times in the past to export Japan's popular gamble "pachinko" to America and other countries in vain. Please tell me why the pachiko cannot attract Americans and others.

In communist countries, the government controls everything from national and foreign policies to education and medias. This works efficient but may lead to the country's fall.

Japan is a very much natural disaster prone country. Typhoons, floods, earthquakes etc. In addition, summer is very hot and winter very cold. Despite all these minus factors, people are diligent and hard working. It is a surprise.

Maybe madness resides in everybody's mind. After all we human beings are also brutal animals. Human beings created the civilized society but it is not enough. We have to make efforts constantly to hold down our innate animal nature.

Japan is thinking seriously how to deal with rogue neighbours realizing that the peace constitution does not guarantee the peace of the country but on the contrary the rogue neighbors are taking advantage of Japan's peace constitution which stipulates Japan will not take arms to settle international conflicts. It is making them free to all kinds of provocations. Japan is thinking it is difficult to keep dignity of the country as the way it is.

"Why should it be okay for Okinawans to suffer this burden?”
They are hiding U.S. Forces on Okinawa is a gold mine for them to get financial support from the government.
