    I feel that Japans system in backwards and inwards looking. I have never seen a foreign doctor in Japan, except on TV. When abroad, thats all I see.

    You haven't looked in the right places, but you are correct in that there are not all that many.

    So, you say Abe should not take care of the refugees in Tohoku nor this Japanese hostage.

    Did I say that? No I did not.....

    Yasuda due to the fact that the Japanese government has not obliged to the kidnappers’ requests. The man then says he will no longer negotiate Yasuda’s release.

    Instead of leaving everyone hanging here, share exactly what the government did not agree to in their requests.

    Abe does not care about the lives of Japanese citizens.

    Think a moment, if ABe doesnt give a crap about the refugees in Tohoku why should he be concerned about one individual journalist who got his ass caught in an area he KNEW that he should not have gone.

    SOrry but this is on the guy, sorry as I feel for him, and more so for his family, he has to deal with this himself.

    The Isreali medical team were refused attending to victims during the Tohoku earthquake despite the large number of victims needing help and the widespread shortage of medical personel, so can you tell us what you think was the reason for them not being allowed to attend to victims ?

    Really and they set up a hospital and were gratefully thanked by the people of Minamisanriku for their heartfelt assistance. I wonder why....

    X enters the country on a three-month visa, but fails to leave. Immigration know the name and nationality, yes, but the whereabouts?

    X enters country on a 3 month visa they are issued a card and must have a valid address to even get said visa.

    Japan doesn't allow foreign doctors to practise in Japan because the anatomy, organs etc of Japanese are unique and so different from that of foreigners that a foreign doctor won't be able to diagnose and treat properly why because they are not familiar with the Japanese body.

    Right, the ob/gyn chief at a hospital here is from the US, you gonna tell me that the anatomy of a Japanese female is so different that he can't deliver babies and treat women either?

    This is about the most ignorant post I have ever read here on JT and believe me I have read a bunch of stupid shit.

    If they, Japanese immigration that is, know the number, they should know the whereabouts as well of these illegal aliens.

    Meaning they could if they wanted to deport them.

    How can anyone vote "no" to this? Do the "no" voters think that it's not right for Okinawans to express their opinions?

    It is called an "opinion" poll right? So in effect you are saying that people who voted no have no right to their opinion. Typical of anyone who is anti-base here in Okinawa too, don't agree 100% and they are wrong. Interesting insight.

    She asked to use the executive changing room and visitors toilet for privacy, no longer feeling comfortable in the mens. The company required that in return for special treatment of this kind she must explain why to her coworkers. I think I can understand both points of view, until the point where she sued despite having agreed to explain.

    Please reread the article. She did not request the executive changing room.

    She also asked the company to allow her to use a locker room separate from one for male workers.

    So you are basing your opinion upon faulty information here.

    In exchange for offering her a locker room for executives, the company forced her to come out in front of her colleagues.

    Which is in effect blackmailing her here. You want the locker room access, we'll up it to the executive one but there are strings attached.

    Power harassment and bullying, plain and simple.

    And yet the topic is about a citizen of Japan, a non military civilian. Most comments here are off topic.

    When did you make the guy a citizen of Japan? Cripes, just because someone takes their wife's name doesnt automatically mean they take their nationality along with it.

    HE IS NOT A JAPANESE CITIZEN! I am rather tired of the people who continually assume that he is, get it right!

    The worker asked the company to change her health insurance card, while wishing to continue using the former male name in the office. She also asked the company to allow her to use a locker room separate from one for male workers.

    I am sorry but something does not ring right with me here. If she officially had her change legalized by the court, I wonder if she faced bullying or some other type of harassment within the company that forced her to make this request.

    The worker was compelled to explain her condition three times in morning meetings saying, “I am causing trouble to everyone due to treatment of my gender identity disorder. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation.”

    OK, so she was bullied. More like "powa-harra" power harassment.

    I hope she gets 10 times the amount she is asking for, I know she wont but there is no excuse for her being treated this way.

    Backed by the government, Medical Excellence Japan will compile the list of hospitals which treat more than 10 patients from overseas every year and have operations designed to treat foreign patients, seeking applicants from July 4.

    There is a difference between these two issues. I am also interested in the intent behind the phrase "designed to treat foreign patients".

    It's a worthy idea here, yet I am concerned that it is just paying lip service to make foreign visitors feel like they have somewhere to go in case of an emergency or need treatment.

    The compilation of the list has been planned as part of the government’s growth strategy as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration seeks to boost the number of foreigners visiting Japan for treatment under the nation’s advanced medical services.

    This raises even more questions here. Under current Japanese law all people here are required to carry health insurance. So will these medical services be paid in cash? If so if these patients are allowed to pay in cash, then the requirement for all people to carry health insurance would become moot and everything that goes along with that.

    I am also VERY curious to know just what, details please, "advanced medical services" Mr Abe's administration is thinking about here.

    Takata shares surged on Tuesday after the airbag supplier’s boss reportedly said he would resign once the company recovers from a scandal linked to at least 13 deaths and scores of injuries globally.

    Big assumption here.....

    He should be going to prison, not collecting a pay-cheque.

    While I understand the sentiment, what charges would you file against him?

    Exactly. There were over 3,400 arrests for crimes in Okinawa last year, 37 were people from bases. Why don't we hear about all those other crimes on Okinawa? They have nothing to do with getting rid of the bases, that's why.

    It about the "context"....lol! The anti-base people are looking for angels where they live among a number of devils themselves.

    The folks claiming that Onaga is a savior and the next best thing to running water, over look his own past as a part of the LDP and point fingers at everyone but themselves.

    As I have written here and will do so again, the logical is illogical in Okinawa when it comes to base issues. The media will never tell the whole story.

    Navy personnel are allowed to drink in licensed premises off base until 10 p.m., according to the order effective immediately.

    So, is this meant to be read as having a drink at a friends house is out of the question?

    Those ranked petty officer 2nd class or below must be accompanied by a chaperone in order to consume alcohol either on or off base.

    Chaperone? This is poorly written and reported here, as this makes no sense. Taking it at face value someone, anyone, of equal, lower, or higher rank, or a friend, military or otherwise, could in effect be considered a "chaperone" whether in a club on base or out in the "vill".

    It's never a good sign for your argument when the only way you are able to make it is with a personal attack, nor when your argument has no more substance than "they're all out to get us."

    Never attacked you, just stating an obvious fact based upon your comments. If you have to comment like this you reinforce the fact that you have no knowledge of how the media works here in Okinawa.

    Thank you for your confirming your ignorance, it also makes any comments you make on this issue as being uninformed. That is not an attack,

    t's hard to believe there is a conspiracy to silence a news story whose original writer couldn't be bothered to communicate the date the event being reported on happened. I'm not saying it categorically wasn't squelched, but you're going to have to come up with far more convincing evidence.

    Interesting, you attempt to put words in my mouth that I never used. I may have alluded to something but you assume otherwise.

    Never good to assume something when you are trying to make your point in a discussion. You also failed to respond regarding the Kadena Special Olympics,

    I will be ignoring you on issues related to Okinawa.

    It is amazing that something so logical as looking where you are going needs to be taught to people.

    I have been led to believe that this is an ever growing world-wide problem.

    The girl received a slight head injury,

    One, probably not enough of an injury to change her habits. or two, maybe already was "touched" in the head by the results of her behavior, and this train knocked some sense into her.

    Probably the only reason there isn't a referendum on this issue is because Abe knows which way it would go. Okinawa wants the US military out.....At least that's the story I hear from Okinawan friends and relatives.

    Then your friends and relatives have problems with understanding the problem the same as you. Abe wouldn't matter, reread the title of the poll question.

    It's been asked of the chameleon Governor Onaga, the one you love so much, you know the former LDP puppet who changed spots to keep getting reelected, the one who flip-flopped on the base issues....wait isnt that too what you complained about Nakaima? Hmm, ........to hold the referendum.

    It would be up to him, and done locally, nothing to do with Abe.

    The context of this story clearly matters to you because you want to see good things said about US military, but that doesn't mean it's newsworthy to Japanese people. And like it or not, they make up a bigger audience.

    FYI you can read the story yourself....

    http://okinawa.stripes.com/…/everyday-hero-airman%E2%80%99s…

    It is the context of the news that matters.

    You obviously know little if anything about how the media in Okinawa works. Context does not matter if it is positive regarding the US Military.

    Give you one more example, research the Kadena Special Olympics and tell me what you find out.

    Just another gadget that will be used to put pressure on people. I feel sorry for the JAL women who have to test drive this app. I wonder what the company is going to do with the one's who dont reach a certain rank or score. I can just hear it now..."Oh your smile doesnt meet our new application driven idiotic standards, your fired!"

    Next up, the "smile"-kentei shiken, The smile-test exam, Level 5 to Level 1, each test fee is progressively more expensive with Level 1 being 5,000 a pop. Damn money making chance here!
