    Curious, when you make it yourself, what coffee bean do you prefer? Hopefully its not Blue Mountain.... that can get pretty expensive!

    I have relations here that own a coffee company and they import raw beans and roast them and sell them. Personally I like Toraja but typically I drink killimanjaro.

    When I am out, (besides suffering) I run by FamiMart and get their blend for 100 yen!

    You want them gone? Not gonna happen Gov...but complain away and good luck.

    don't worry about answering (non)voice, you are on the spot here, as long as the national government keeps the current security agreement in place Okinawa is going to keep on hosting bases.

    At last, a real Japanese (well Okinawan) politician!

    Pretty low standard for a "real" politician.

    Someone who is not scared to say "no," to represent his people and do anything necessary to get the product.

    You have either a short memory or literally were not on island the last time a governor here said "no", Okinawa suffered through nearly 15 years of recession.

    Onaga is also a brilliant speaker who doesn't need a scriptwriter. He is quite capable of standing up and delivering a speech off the bat that holds people's attention.

    Anyone compared to Nakaima would be considered "brilliant" , your use of superlatives to describe average is pretty amusing.

    He should be PM in place of Abe.

    Doesn't even fit in the realm of reality, nor fantasy either, ludicrous is more like it for to many reasons to count.

    The drive hunt “is a sustainable fishing (method) under appropriate control by… the government with scientific foundations, and is being carried out carefully so that dolphins are not hurt.

    How can anyone believe this. Tell the one's that were slaughtered that they were not "hurt". I can not imagine how stressful it is to the dolphins themselves to be swimming around in blood laced water of their own species and then herded into a net and stripped from their natural environment to be caged for life.

    Dolphins arent hurt...what a joke.

    The US government has again blown things out of proportion and inflated their work loads like the big bags of wind they are.

    Feel free to drive one of the cars that has the potential defect and then tell me that safety is not an issue. It's playing russian roulette.

    I wonder when the Japanese government is going to investigate and force recalls here.

    Got to give them credit for their marketing campaign. Personally speaking here if their coffee is anywhere decent I am quite sure that folks with "taste" will continue to buy their coffee from them.

    Starbucks is WAY overrated and over-priced as well.

    JAZA does not regard drive hunt as “cruel”, Arai told during a press briefing, adding that a dolphin from Taiji costs about a million yen.

    So justifying the slaughter by saying that one dolphin costs 1 million yen? Where is the logic in that?

    It already has it.

    Yup, American made and maintained. But as noted it's not just that which defends Japan. Oh and in case you forgot the prefecture's name is Okinawa, and it's a part of the country of Japan, and the population here considers themselves Japanese citizens.

    You often seem to conveniently forget these facts and think you are living back in the 1700's Bertie "Nathan Algren" Wooster.

    It's been smoke and mirrors from the start with Abe-nuttics and I just hope it's not too late before people start waking up and taking issue with his policies. He only cares about the "now" and not about the children and grandchildren that have to foot the bill.

    Name the countries who think this wrong. How many countries out of about 300 countries in the world? It is you who are wrong violating the international law which prohibit interference in another country sovereign issue.

    Sovereign issue? I suppose you would say the same to Hitler or Tojo too. It is an issue of cruelty and totally unnecessary as well. You are naive or have your head in a box to think otherwise. BTW there are roughly 200 recognized countries and regions in the world.

    Japan sticks it's nose into plenty of places.

    Sea creatures are mercury laden. The Japanese people especially old people have higher mercury in their bodies than other country people. I'll bet the centenarians have the most mercury.

    Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

    I don't think it's Japanese. I'm sure there're other countries do the same.

    Tell me one country that kills dolphins like the folks in Taiji do? I wont call all Japanese as the perpetrators because most are ignorant of the issue.

    Sometimes I wish the people who are posting common sense responses about issues like this would change places with the politicians here in Okinawa. Ahhh to dream.....

    Then woken up by the chalk-board nail screeching sound of the Okinawan press....

    Nobody is hiding. Why would anybody hide anything that they never imagine wrong to do?

    If no one is hiding then pray tell why do the people of Taji refuse to allow media or press to film or document the capture and killing of these animals? In your next breath you say;

    We all know that killing any animals is brutal thing.

    But you previously said there is nothing to hide? Yet they hide the culling right?

    As I said it is non issue here so no need to talk about it. Long tradition.

    So the world should be bowing to Japanese tradition even when it's wrong, in effect the silence condones the actions, but I'll bet you dont eat the mercury laden meat nor feed it to your kids.

    Some tradition huh? Capture/kill animals for show, force people to believe it's tradition, but one they never knew about until a few years ago, make everyone believe it's Japanese, and then go into denial mode when the heat gets turned up.

    Sounds just like Abe.

    This unfortunate crash is splashed all over the local newspaper's front pages today. The media is doing their best (once again) to over-play the accident, and make it the "top" news story here and fear-monger as usual.

    Why is this even news?

    I actually feel pretty sorry for the Japanese that are unaware of the things being done in their "name" in an attempt to keep their "culture" alive.

    I find it even more sad that people allow themselves to be grouped together in defense of the indefensible too.

    Let one Japanese person scream, "It's Japanese culture" "You have no right to stop us or criticize us" and everyone else jumps on the bandwagon full of ignorance.

    It's time that people here stand up and say "That isn't MY culture" "That isn't ME", time for folks to disassociate themselves from the cruel practices being done in "their" name!

    It's sad for any woman to have to go through a miscarriage and particularly one in this manner. I hope whomever the woman is that carried that child is able to get the counselling and help she needs.

    Tokyo and Okinawa—a once independent kingdom that was annexed by Japan in the 19th century. I for one would love to STOP seeing this. Ok Okinawa was annexed, but do the authors about articles of other countries that took land keep on stating the obvious?a sizable proportion of Okinawans want a dramatic reduction in their numbers. DOH! When Futenma gets moved to Henoko a "dramatic" number will be reduced.

    Next time you moderators want to censor a post do a person a favor and at least get the encoding right along with at least trying to keep the original (proper) grammar and spelling in place too.

    Bye bye this thread too.
