If you ask me, the women didn't fail in their positions. Remember it was Abe who put them there, so, I would have to question his ability to lead his party. His decision making skills are obviously not up to par when it goes to appoint people into a position.

These guys will nitpick any everything these women do until they all resign. I say hang in there and prove you are strong enough to handle the job. Stop being weak and destroying my daughters future.

Japanese don't get fired. They are power harassed into quitting. Companies here don't like to have a rep of firing people.

Who needs a TV in a hotel? Couples don't wacth it, kids have their games and the rest have smartphones and iPads. Don't give In to NHK. Remove the TVs.

Based on my experience here, doctors don't pronounce soon because in many cases, they allow the family to get finances in order. Once a person is pronounce dead, the bank accounts get locked.

Why does it seem like Japanese companies prefer to spend billions on fixing problems instead of thousands to prevent them? My previous employer was like that. I would bring up a potential problem which would take half a day to fix. He yells at me ans says "stop wasting money and time and do your job!" Two days later we're working late for two weeks to fix the problem.

titaniumdioxide: why don't you go to Fukushima with a sign with the exact words and stand in front of the hospital treating all the children with thyroid cancer, then march to the temp housing area where thousands of people have been living in housing that is falling apart. Finally off to the fishing villages where people have lost their lively hood because the Pacific Ocean is too polluted to fish in. If all goes well, I'm on your side.

These things are more dangerous than safe. Left lane on highways are blocked so the police can hand out flyers to motorcyclist, causing unexpected merging into center lane. Oh the number of near misses and scratched paint. Not to mention the traffic jams it causes. I really wonder about the people who come up with these stupid ideas. Perhaps they should do their job everyday of the year instead of just one week a year.
Love the old people sitting I the tents drinking tea all day. They are nice people to talk to.

Hats off to the centenarians but as Japanese Governments loves to boost about itself I wonder how many are actually alive being that the law doesn't require physical contact with a person collecting a pension.

Um, excuse me but fathers are worried about their children too. Let's stop making it all about the women and mothers and start making it about what is best for the future of Japan and the children of today who will be leading it.

Geoff, I have to agree with the law. If someone you have never met started taking pictures of you for no particular reason, wouldn't you feel a bit uneasy? How does the person plan to use YOUR photo? Identity theft? Frame your for something? Who knows? It's just creepy!

So when will we see article title "Abe names 5 men to new cabinet."? They shouldn't need to be highlighting gender. I only need to see their qualifications.
