    for nearly 5 years the Japanese government and businesses have been pushing to get more foreign tourists to visit Japan - 20 million by 2020 or some other slogan.... it seems that no thought has gone into this now that the tourists are coming - no parking, no new hotels or accommodation and increasing charges to everyone.. beats me how they will handle the Olympics.... I think they call it 'Kaizen' - making it up as you go along....

    Abenomics like many things in Japan was a triumph of style over substance - simple window dressing to hide other agendas...

    Attempts to legalise casino gambling in Japan, which industry experts say is one of the world’s last major untapped gaming markets, have been delayed repeatedly amid opposition from lawmakers worried about addiction and organised crime.

    In other words, they are concerned about vested interests in the current Japanese gambling markets not getting a slice of the casino market....

    Israel says the fate of the settlements should be resolved in peace talks along with other core issues like security and borders.

    Is this before or after Israel "appropriates" (ie: steals) their land....

    that's right, put the screws on the small man while the large multinationals pay next to nothing (and in many cases claim tax credits from the government for "costs" they incurred)....

    “Japan needs to work harder to really open its doors to make it a more welcoming environment for people from other countries to work in.”

    not much chance of that really happening I'm afraid... it's one reason why Japan's economy has gone nowhere for the last 30 years....

    Japan will not regret the Olympics. Japan loves misery.

    You are correct. This misery will then be channeled into the familiar victim routine and how the country is always being misunderstood.....

    Some Japanese conservatives and nationalists say the trials were nothing more than victor’s justice, maintaining that their country fought to free Asia from Western colonialism

    I would be curious to know which countries asked Japan to 'liberate' them from western colonialism. Another revisionist fantasy from Abe's increasingly delusion right wing mates
