    Japan is a sovereign nation. . . . So China and S Korea need to stop being so condescending and think they can direct the policies of this country . . . . . .Maybe Japan is a good diversion from all their own internals problems

    Masao Yoshida is a hero - a courageous man of integrity and principle . . . Thankfully, ASAHI and SANKEI will alow the public to know how his intelligent & heroic leadership steered the best course in a time of compounding disaster and crazy-making obfuscation by other leaders. . . . Thank you Masao Yoshida ! You have fonght the good fight .

    Security and a good economy are related . . .The problem is Abe's fighting on 2 fronts trying to boost the decades old flailing economy at the same time redefining Japan's need to establish itself as a sovereign nation with some teeth (not dependent on US alone) . . . ................... It's a formidable task. . . . . Abe is probably one of the hardest working P.M. in decades . . . ............And he's smart, diplomatic, genuinely committed to peace , humanitarian and equity issues . . .............Its a long shot, but I will bet on him.

    Countless of these shopping arcades at in their death throes cross Japan - mostly because the big malls have absorbed the consumer traffic. . . . This has less to do with the economy and more to do with changing infrastructures .

    WELL - Japan needs to re-haul its labour- laws ---------------------the average J employee is overworked and seriously under-payed . . ......................and there is not a lot of legal protection for the labourer. . . .This needs to be addressed to humanize the workplace- . . . ......................Secondly, Japan needs to get out of its xenophobia and allow for decent immigration to offset the decreasing employable demogaphi.c

    What a fatuous article-!!! What a crock!!!!! Honestly Anxiety Disorder is one of the most common mental health illnesses in ALL the western world ( Europe / North America) ..............In fact, i n the USA Anxiety disorders is the MOST common mental illness .,costing the U.S. more than $42 billion a year,(according to a study commissioned by ADAA - The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry).

    BertieWosster; Their thinking is fundamentally flawed. To begin with Japanese are not stingy

    Right.................... Japan is one of the highest contributor to world relief programs i n response to natural disters, hunger/faminie and other exigencies . .

    Agreed jerseyboy !!!! , , , , ,How is it that the J government has protected TEPCO and done so little to help and compensate the victims of the disaster???????????????????---- - EQUALLY- WHY? has no one been charged for negligence ????................ I mean, International Nuclear Energy inspectors, plus some courageous J journalists and professionals drew attention to defects in the FUKUSHIMA plant for years . . No one did anything. .

    Posted in: It is beyond our understanding why TEPCO continues with the payment when it is effectively bankrupt. That money should be spent to compensate victims.

    Japan has continually made overtures to So Korea for dialogue - which have been haughtily spurned by the current regime there. . .And USA should tone down its rhetoric when speaking of atrocities- - --bc we also ought not forget that while American men of Japanese descent were fighting on the European front in WWII in the 42 Infantry Regiment - - - - , their families were struggling with the indignity of interment camps, having been ripped out of their homes . .( in Canada as well)
