They probably saw their tattoos (reference tattoo-adverse Japan)

Has anybody who is commenting negatively about Yasukuni ever been there? If not, then how can you INTELLIGENTLY comment on it? It is NOT a shrine to war criminals. Rather it is the repose of the souls of all of those who died for Japan throughout all of its wars, including those of non-soldiers (nurses and some postal workers, for example). The souls of the "Class A" war criminals, executed for Crimes Against Humanity, also repose there. They indeed died for Japan regardless of the (justified) condemnation of the court. It has been a familiar drum beat for China and Korea, who neither understand nor care about the true meaning of the place. Something good to use in their political games.

So, Ghost rider, you know all about night training and remote bases, eh? And, oh, those "nice weather generals," wow, what an insightful comment! Just which remote bases did you have in mind, here in Japan? And what makes you think those "nice weather generals" exist? In a word, do you have a clue what you are talking about?

That stops at the onsen door if you have tattoos. Hope they wake up before 2020 Olympics, or Japan will embarrass itself big time.

This kind of rhetorical question begs the use of 20/20 hindsight. To be truly understood, the question must be asked within the context of the time, information at hand, and the assessment of intelligence that predicted what might have happened had the pursuit of "unconditional surrender" played out as anticipated. It is easy to judge and condemn from the comfort of one's own armchair many years after the fact.

Unless someone in your family is murdered. I'd like to hear what your response would be to that.....

For Dennis Bauer: Weather comes in quickly on Iwo To, especially at night. If the field goes IMC (instrument meterological conditions) and the aircraft could not safely land, that would constitute such an emergency. There are a lot of mitigations that reduce the risk however.

gaijintraveller you are obviously a regional security expert well grounded in geopolitical reality. Your observation displays and intuitive grasp of the irrational/delusional. Obviously China and North Korea do not factor in your equation. Why aren't you in a government position rather than being just a "gaijin traveler?" That way you can have a real influence rather than posting pre-adolescent drivel.
