    After the final ceremonies, when the last fireworks have been launched and all the foreign journalists have returned home, a bankrupt state of Rio will be left to pick up the pieces. And neither patriotism nor the love of sports will entitle us to overlook our reality.

    Everyone will have to wait another month or so. While these Olympics may be finishing the Paralympics will be starting soon after as well.

    Your evidence? Workforce participation for prime age Japanese women is now slightly higher than the US. The US rate is going down, the Japanese rate is going up.

    Obfuscate and deflect.....there are plenty of articles here that say his polices regarding women have failed.

    would also note that it is neither Abe Shinzo nor Kathy Matsui nor you nor I who should be deciding whether Japanese women enter the workforce. That is a decision for each Japanese woman to make.

    Nice try, never said anything otherwise, but you have it wrong. Men have a responsibility as well, but I doubt you see where or how, and I am not going to educate you about it either.

    Most of what Abe has said about women and the economy and women in management has been taken from Kathy Matsui and her womenomics, sometimes with explicit attribution by name. So, if you say Abe doesn't know what he is talking about, your are in effect saying that Kathy Matsui doesn't know what she is talking about.

    Guess what....then she doesn't as Abe's so-called policies to get more women involved in work force have failed terribly.

    So, if you say this woman is advising Abe, he needs to find a woman who knows what's going on!

    The Cabinet Office, however, said its oversight body’s audit found no ministries or agencies had misclassified particular information as state secrets.

    A internal government agency, cabinet level no less, overseeing other agencies regarding a secrecy law that the cabinet (Abe) pushed through against public opposition.......anyone else see something wrong here?

    “I found problems with the roads, evacuation drills and other things. They should be tackled immediately,

    If you are so concerned and not just paying lip service to the constituency this should read "They WILL be tackled immediately "

    Rather hear Koike talk about women's issues than Abe and the old-fogies, at least she knows what she is talking about.

    It appears to me the JSDF want the proposed base in Henoko--that is probably the only reason Abe government is putting up so much resistance and ignoring the voices of the constituents.

    Sorry but it's for the US Marine Corp. Might help to get up to speed on the topic here.

    Let's get out of the Showa era, we're already at the year Hesei 27!

    Lol...did you write this post LAST year and copy and paste it here? FYI it's Hesei 28.

    They are popular. There is no misplaced about it. If people like them, people like them. If people don't, people don't. People do, so they are popular. End of story.

    Their popularity has been waning for years, and btw the "end of story" is December 31st.

    It is going to get harder and harder for the JSDF to find recruits who want to join the JSDF when the people realize what is going on here.

    I suggest that they draft the guys who were standing out in front of Yasukuni.

    “I wanted gold,” said Yoshida, who is Japan’s Olympic captain at the Rio Games. “This is the first time I’ve lost on such a big stage and it’s frustrating to fall at the very last. Kaori won her fourth consecutive gold yesterday, I was really envious. It’s disappointing, as we were talking about doing it together.”

    Well, if it was anyone else I would say, "Guess what your opponent wanted the gold too!", but in your case I can emphasize with the desire to win your 4th gold in the sport, like your teammate.

    Hold your head high! You will ALWAYS be an Olympic gold medalist, and there are plenty of athletes that would love to trade places with you and are just honored to be given the chance to participate.

    “Improvement of the level of cooking and hygiene through this competition—that’s what we’re aiming for,” he said.

    Please start with focusing on the hygiene practices HERE! There is nothing more disgusting than seeing a so-called sushi chef making the sushi with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, while a cockroach runs along the floor.

    Despite the regulations, however, related injuries are still common, the center says, urging parents to follow bicycle laws in order to prevent spoke-related injuries.

    Regulate all you want, but until parents use some common sense it isn't going to matter one bit. I feel sorry for all the kids that got hurt, there are plenty of safe child seats available for riding on the back of a bike, and it's up to the parents to ensure the safety of their child.

    Good riddance, they had their day in the sun, a couple of decades ago, and have been riding the misplaced popularity ever since.

    Oh and by the way..

    SMAP, which stands for Sports Music Assemble People, was formed in 1988 by six boys, with one—Katsuyuki Mori—leaving in 1996 to pursue a career as an auto racer.

    Motorcycle racer.....

    LOL I warned this was likely. Even if Futenma was vacated by the Americans, there was nothing that said the base wouldn't be taken over by the JSDF. This "minimal" maintenance keeps that possibility alive.

    JSDF dont want Futenma, it serves them no purpose, the Ground forces dont need it, too small for their purposes, the Coast Guard and Navy, obvious reasons do not either, and the Air SDF don't need it as they have Naha, and in emergencies or time of conflict would have access to Kadena.

    The runway at Futenma is too short for the ASDF so in reality the base serves no purpose for the JSDF.

    It's going back to Japanese control, but before that happens the military is doing the right and proper thing by doing necessary repairs. It's a no brainer really.

    I do not weep for the cultural imperialists with painful foreheads.

    I do weep for your mother being taught to say one thing in English then adding Japanese to the end, surefire way to confuse the hell out of everyone. Shopping しました! Drink します! That is just damn ignorant.

    Wouldn't building 500 free day cares be better for both cities?

    Of course it would be, BUT to the Abe government there is no visible repayment foreseeable for the money spent, hence this not happening. Another reason being is that the national government does not get involved too often with "local" problems.

    Japan doesn't need to pay a cent.

    Then take your complaint to the people who made the agreement with the US government and see what they have to say. Good luck in getting in the door, you won't.

    "The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat " was often used in the reporting of previous Olympics

    Actually it was used in the opening of the 1970's US TV show "Wide World of Sports".

    I am sorry to finish with a silver medal despite all the cheers from so many people,” a teary Yoshida said. “As the Japanese captain, I should have gotten the gold medal.”

    You have zero reason to be sorry for anything. Captain or not your achievements in the sport of women's wrestling are legendary.

    I know, I know, for the press, but please hold your head high and be proud of what you have accomplished, congratulations!
