    Some of the JR East passes can be bought in Japan. The flexible 5 day pass is a good deal if you are travelling to Tokyo and the north.

    These sanctions are not enough to deter the crook and swine Putin from his aggression. Instead of targeting Putin's associates, why not try to seize Putin's own assets (stolen from the Russian people)? Bar all Russian banks from operating in the EU and USA and stop all trade, except for food and medicines.

    Putin must be forced to return the land in Ukraine and Georgia that he has seized illegally. If he won't, the Russian economy must be driven to bankruptcy.

    Has anybody checked Nakaima's bank accounts lately? It's difficult to explain his abrupt change of stance following his meeting with Abe other than by his receipt of a large sum of cash. The man is a disgrace.

    If someone claims they will do one thing prior to election and then does the complete opposite once elected there should be a way for the public to throw them out of office. Without such measures there can never be trust in politicians.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the university planted the empty drink cans in order to have an excuse to evict the students. They need to provide better evidence than empty drink cans and to prove that the drink was consumed in the dormitory and not elsewhere.

    How about the government guarantee that, in the event of another nuclear accident, anyone living in an evacuation zone can immediately receive compensation from the government of at least double the value of their land and property in the evacuation zone?

    Instead, the residents get a few Yen's worth of pills and nothing else. That's what happens when you vote in a LDP government.

    I wonder why they don't study the Swedish model in more detail, instead of just writing an unsubstantiated opinion piece?

    JeffLee: Don't be too confident in Japanese banks: they hold a lot of Japanese government bonds. When the government defaults the banks will lose out. Depositors can expect to be "bailed in" (like in Cyprus) to help them out.

    If you study the assets held by Japanese politicians you won't find much held as bank deposits. They won't be the losers when it all goes pear shaped.

    And still no sanctions from the Europeans, they are even sending arms to Russia. The crook Putin will soon send his tanks into Ukraine unchallenged and nothing will be done. It's time to impose heavy sanctions on Russia, something that will really hurt them. The swine Putin will have to be stopped sometime; the longer they wait the more painful it will be.

    The government cannot repay the debts. This means they will either default, order the "independent" Bank of Japan to cancel the Japanese government bonds it holds, or bring in the "new Yen".

    Japanese women aren't daft enough to spend their every waking hour sitting at a desk in an office pretending to work until their workaholic boss decides to go home.

    The BOJ data show real wages continue to fall. I wonder if the people working there actually read their own reports.

    GW: We bought a couple of properties this year. I didn't really want the hassle, but with the banks here and overseas only paying a fraction of a percent in interest and their risk of going bankrupt being higher than that I thought it was time to act. After what happened in Cyprus I'm not waiting to be "bailed in" the next time some bankers gamble away their bank's assets.

    It's difficult to see how these measures will reduce the popularity of the iPhone. The carriers have been using the same tactics since before they offered the iPhone. I seem to remember some years ago they promised to stop the 1 Yen phone deals, but that didn't last long.

    Japanese phone manufacturers need to compete in a global market, but they are unable to do so. Fiddling with the regulations in Japan won't help them gain the economies of scale they need.

    Hyper-inflation is what the government need to devalue their debts. We've moved a lot of money out of the bank this year to protect it from Abe's incontinent spending and devaluation. It's not just Japan that is doing this, governments all over the world are unwilling to balance their budgets and many of them are simply printing money to make up the difference.

    Project Gutenberg has thousands of free books available, no subscription or credit card required.

    I wouldn't subscribe to the Amazon service; quite apart from not wanting them to increase their power over publishers, as soon as you stop paying you have nothing.

    This is why I prefer to take my holidays overseas. Wherever you go in Japan the cities all look the same: rectilinear concrete and glass boxes. Why bother spending a fortune to visit a place that is exactly like the place you live?
