Just look at TPP.... Japan won't budge a bit on Agricultural issues.... but they will allow a new base in Okinawa. This is the Government of Japan approving this base.... if they didn't want it they'd say no just like they are with TPP.

They hired an "outside team of investigators".... who did they hire? Are there professional outside accounting investigators for hire in Japan? The SESC should be doing the investigating not an outside team.

For years Japan has been banning food imports for various reasons.... that they complain about this, against S. Korea to boot, is just asking for trouble. This smells like the Right Wing trying to stir up trouble.

I've seen a lot of movies that won academy awards that I didn't like and I've seen some very poorly reviewed movies that I thought were great. Sometimes politics get in the way at Cannes... but either way I'll be my own judge.

No doubt.... the story of Japan and its toilets as been overplayed for years. Do they have one with facial recognition yet. Mom would like that.

I don't understand how Japanese companies so often massively miss their mark on earnings compared to their forecasts. If Apple predicted it would lose $100 million for the year but then came in with a $10 billion loss. There would be a tremendous amount of explaining to do. But Japan... no. Companies tell investors anything they want because no one seems to care.

If anyone believes for one second that the USA told Japan it would have to accept these helicopters they're dead wrong. Japan only accepts what it wants in the first place.

Had one of them fly over my house the other day.... it was flying pretty low and even before it got close by I could hear a whooping sound like none I've heard before.... it was kind of eerie... like some sort of prehistoric bird might sound. Maybe I'd been drinking though or something like that.

Lived in Japan for many years and the way they make change never really impressed me. It is efficient and polite... but that is the style of the Japanese Culture in general. I'll take the U.S. Style... rude at times but at least they converse with you and don't get flustered.

Yes they were screwing around.... many of us did at their age. To me the punishment should be dealt in relation to their overall demeanor and citizenship up until the point of this event. If the driver had a history of recklessness then he needs some very stern medicine. However if he had never had a problem and was quite remorseful... then teach him a lesson somehow but do not ruin his whole future. Kids will be kids and things will unfortunately happen sometimes.
