    At least there should be a serious public debate before allowing their limited use.

    I agree, but sadly this IS Japan, public debate is not something that the average Japanese person is comfortable with. It forces them to take a public stance on one side or the other on any given issue and sticking out is one thing they collectively abhor.

    Also sadly too is that public debate is needed on a host of issues and this one in the bigger picture of all the problems currently ongoing here is way down on the priority list in my opinion.

    Saddest thing ever

    Not even close, in the bigger picture of life this is not even a tiny splinter. It's just that there are people who try to magnify this into something more than it deserves.

    You know if the media, on both sides of the issue, would ignore what they are doing they would eventually stop going.

    It's BECAUSE the media pushes it that they push back, just like a couple of little kids fighting over some toy in the sandbox.

    I don’t think there will be (any impact). The visit was made in a personal capacity.”

    Why do these mouthpieces continue to spout rhetoric like this? Anyone who is in government, especially a ministerial position, does not have a private life.

    If this was true then any incidents that happen during their "off" time or when they are on personal time would never count. It's ludicrous to think otherwise.

    What's worse is if any of the public actually believes this.

    Been enduring this ear-piercing BS for weeks upon weeks now...

    Get used to it or not, it's that simple. Earplugs work wonders, or headphones playing your favorite music!

    Have kids...they are far more important than some cultured beasts.

    This kind of thinking is off the mark, kids are not pets and should not even be equated as such.

    Agree with the pet store statement, get your pet from the shelter, but remember that getting a pet is a 10 to 20 or more year commitment.

    Done right, both kids and pets together are a joy!

    Japanese people do whatever they wish to do according to national traditions.

    "Traditions" that came about what? 20 30 years ago? Rather convenient dont you think? Anytime anyone speaks out about anything the Japanese do or dont do according to international norms someone always seems to complain or comment that it's a part of Japanese culture.

    It's not "culture" for all Japanese. I wish people would start learning to think for themselves here, but then if wishes were horses.....

    One down....how many countless others to go! It bugs me to no end the inhumane treatment these "pets" get here in Japan.

    Corporate Japan at work. ANA should just buy them outright and keep them flying.

    Sorry to chime in, Yubaru, but there were lines long before the camera crews got there.

    I don't doubt this, but sustaining the lines came from TV.

    “I feel very grateful anew that we have maintained peace for 70 years,” said Hidehisa Otsuji, a lawmaker with the conservative ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), who leads the group. “The souls (of the dead) must also be pleased with this.”

    What a joke....they haven't kept any peace, and I for one would appreciate it if they quit spouting out rhetoric like this, folks tend to believe them and believing a lie does no one any good.

    America forced Japan into peace, rewrote it's constitution, and has been keeping an eye on Japan ever since.

    America kept the peace, if Japan had had it's way, it would either still be at war, or totally nonexistent as we know it today.

    America's birthrate is below replacement levels, but the population in America will continue to grow into the second half of this century. Japan'a population will decline by at least one-third over the same period.

    You have to consider the source when answering or commenting on her responses. Facts don't matter.

    Except that this place hasn't appeared on TV. They are famous for "shuzai kyohi," or saying no to the media and TV programs.

    Do you know that even that WAS on TV? More than one program has showed the outside of their establishment on TV and have sent celebrities into the place to request being able to bring cameras into the rest. and by telling them NO they are giving the places free advertising.

    The celebrities then ate in the place, came out and told the world of Japan....oooiiiishiii!

    Hence the long lines.

    The LDP are the big supporters of the TPP

    In reality this is not true, and you know why? It's the agriculture collectives that have kept the LDP in power for generations, they are only backing it in public because of Abe, but their constituencies are totally against it and if they lose their subsidizes the LDP from agricultural areas are or could be in big trouble.

    However I bet the government finds some other way to put money in their pockets to keep them in the fold.

    Television personalities told the people that this place was "ooiiiiishiiii" so people are falling all over themselves to go, if you trust them, go for it.

    There is a ramen place near where I work that is overrun with tourists nearly everyday now. Some idol from Taiwan went there with a camera crew and now it is so busy locals can't get in to eat.

    Interesting how almost every comment on this post is thumbed down. It's as if nobody likes anything that anyone else has to say.

    First it shouldn't matter, but if you want the truth it's not a game really and it just goes to show how divisive the subject is.

    I would just hope that the people who are against it do so for reasons other than the ones they are posting that are just regurgitating propaganda and not based on reality.

    At first glance I thought it said "wedding test"...I need more coffee.

    Me too! lol! I hope they stick with it!

    One junior high school near my house has a steep slope that overlooks the school's athletic field and they have a male and female goat grazing the hillside there for quite a number of years.

    Another benefit is that the goats regularly mate and have kids and many of the jhs's students have seen the births and have been involved in the raising of the kids.

    I'm actually quite surprised how Abe's diplomatic skills are getting from bad to worse.

    Why be surprised? He never had any "skills" in the first place. Abe is not a diplomat, he is a Japanese man raised in a culture where the "man" at the top leads by telling everyone else what to do, and to those who don't follow they get placed (figuratively speaking) in a room with no lights and nothing to do but twiddle their fingers all day.
