I don't understand how not 100% of Japanese don't have this guy's mindset when it comes to history. if Abe and his ilk had this mentality, all the rancor about revisionism in East Asia would be gone in a second.

The US doesn't deny the a-bombs nor do they claim that they civilized Japan and then say they already apologized for the very things they deny. Asking why Japan doesn't demand apology is the wrong question.
Posted in: How come Japan has never demanded an official apology from any U.S. government for the dropping of atomic bombs on two of its cities? In fact, why don't Japanese hate America for dropping the bombs?

What Japan needs to do is spend money on teaching correct history to its children so you don't have generations of Japanese who are clueless to Japanese WWII atrocities.

I use wooden lures that are 11 inches which I cast from the beach and retrieve through the waves to catch fish that are 15 to 40 inches in length. Surfboards are literally shark lures.

Considering this law is mostly applicable to black van folks who are screaming on amplified voices to kill Koreans and given the long and horrid history of massacres and oppression across wide spectrum, yes "hate speech" should be made illegal. Japanese shouldn't be waving swatstikas in public for many many reasons either. Japan is the only modern country that still struggles with these types of social ills. It's 2015, not 1935. Enough with the fascist era racism and ideology please.

The Middle East can have their own MFC. China, Korea, Japan, Australia, Uzbekistan and surrounding regions can form their own AFC. I hate dealing with the dirty politics, grass rolling, bad sportsmanship, mercenary athletes, and all the whining and crap.

Almost anything that is "Japanese" was originally from China, Korea, Dutch, or somewhere else. Let's gain a little perspective please. Most food in NYC is made by Mexicans anyways. Here I will play the world's smallest violin for you....

Maybe you shouldn't chase girls on minibikes and run them into telephone poles. Jees. There are more serious crimes than teenage girls on minibikes in Hitachinaka I'm sure.

Japanese airline would deny it, claim that the passengers and the pilot asked for the plane to be turned back and say people who disagree are liars.

Seeing all the whining in comments sections and the fact that Japan's majority ruling party denies war atrocities like it's 1935, I don't see why this is at all surprising.

The entire thing was orchestrated and implemented at a military, industrial level. Absolutely disgusting and not what decent people do. How can anyone defend rounding up basically children and sending them to battlefronts to be sold to soldiers. It's simply pathetic.

I actually like LG better but they've been just lacking that 2%. Nexus 5 was probably the best phone on the market when they made the first one except for the giant flaw of not being 4G. They just need to do that again with top specs and make it cost competitive with iPhone and Samsung flagship phones.

Honestly if white people stopped eating fish, the world would be a better place. I am horrified every time I see westerners fillet fish and throw the rest away. Even at fancy restaurants they'll just take the fillet part off the fish and serve it and not give you the rest of the fish. Tanned tuna.... one of the truly worse inventions of the world.

Even high schoolers writing articles on politics on highly credible journalism sites are able to work with Korea's defamation laws. It's pretty pathetic and conceited for Kato to think he can just ignore well heeded local laws. And no one is noticing that this guy is explicitly admitting that he published internet rumors!! LOL.

This was sparked by Japanese fans flying the Imperial flag design during Korean Japan matches. Call me crazy but why not just stick to national flags and not fly WWII imperial graphics to a country that you invaded and brutalized?
