Japan should start building nukes and shoot them into the Yellow Sea. Got to have big guns to threaten China and NK if the want to see results.

I am glad to know that maybe the Japanese consumers are getting better educated regarding consumption of junk foods. Eat more veggies, fish, and protein. Get rid of big macs and pizzas.

Japanese politicians, especially men, are stupid. There is no getting around it. Plain stupid.

Japan should step out of the TPP talks so as not to hinder the rest of the Pacific rim countries from concluding a final agreement. We all know that Japan will not give up on the agricultural subsidies. Its time for Japanese politicians to quit fooling around and step out of the TPP talks and tell the other 90 percent of the Japanese people why they had to drop out.

Why don't some enterprising person open a used women undergarment shop for all the perverted men? These men can buy all the stained, torned, and worned-out undies that their heart desires and provide much need cash to someone who needs financial help.

NeoJamal, the US annexed Okinawa?? After WWII,Okinawa and the Bonin-Volcano Islands were Occupied by US Forces and administrative control was reverted to Japan in 1968 and 1970.

Sidekick, independence for Ryukyu islanders will not happen. Remember, their last King died in Edo as a virtual prisoner.

Me again with a PS. Suzuki, are you married? If so, I want to meet your wife to see what kind of woman is married to you. I bet you mother was delighted with your work today. It was so constructive, wasn't it? As for your wife, I hope the neighborhood wives will shun her because of your action; maybe she will divorce you? Wishing you all the bad luck in the future, if any.

Okinawans, remember that it was the Japan Imperial military that brought havoc and destruction to Okinawa. Most Japanese did not consider Ryukyu islanders as Japanese. The IJA troops disregard for life on Okinawa is well documented. It is unfortunate that the IJA and IJN decided to fortify Okinawa to meet the Allied Forces. If the stand was made in Kyushu, you can bet that most of the current US Forces will be stationed there instead of Okinawa.

Suzuki you the type of men who can only pick on women. You don't have the balls to pick on other men. You should quit right now. Don't wait to be asked, just quit now and do the right thing, after all aren't you Japanese?

It is cheaper to hire housewives, pay per package delivered. You and I know that there are lots of men out there looking for work, but it will cost too much to hire permanent or part-time male workers at hourly rate. Part of present day troubles started in early 1970s with part-time women workers filling-in at manufacturing companies. The taste for cheap labor has not abated since.

I don't understand your thinking. Why would a country like Australia need to pay off asylum seekers? Asylum seekers have no standing other than the grace of a country. The country can refuse you. Don't become like the USA and feel obligated to help all those people seeking to enter this country legally or otherwise. Now, the USA is spending millions in direct aid to minors crossing its border. Obama administration has no balls to throw them out. Now we are stuck with other countries problems.

I said it before; you can't change these opinionated old Japanese male politicians to move into the modern world. They can't stand to see a women as equal amongst them. Remember, these are the same politicians who approved the use of Viagra in record time but refused to approve the birth control pill for the women. I have no doubt in my mind that these old farts will be downfall of Japan.

Posted in: Japan needs to keep apologizing, making gestures of contrition and seek a fuller understanding of its shared past with Asia. The apologies tend to be vague and lack specific references to atrocities and excesses, therefore not addressing the needs of the victims.
