    "Bach said that Japan needs to take heed, and to prepare a Games that do not simply replicate what has gone before." This will surely take the Japanese Olympic Committee out of their comfort zone, and necessitate months of meetings. This is a group that couldn't even come up with a logo that wasn't plagiarized.

    Couldn't come up with an original logo. Back tracked on the original stadium which factored heavily into them getting the games.

    I'm sure the Japanese Olympic Committee will find another way to make a mockery of the games. Bach's comment will surely fly right over their heads.

    Construction projects will not last forever. Not all projects are fruitful for commercial returns. Especially Olympic infrastructures. When the building boom is over, who will employ them?

    So long as land exists, so does the opportunity for development. Companies will never stop constructing buildings. Same goes for roads, bike lanes, road repairs, and really any infrastructure maintenance...

    How can anyone really like this option? Well, it's Japan so... I guess I can understand. The new stadium is just too conservative and resembles too many global arenas-- which isn't saying much. At least Plan B tried to push the envelope a bit.

    JandworldJUL. 21, 2015 - 06:38PM JST For a long time this country bought peace with currency. Pay yen and just be an island. Just keep the outsiders out and peace will be assured.

    Housewifes even imaged to apply for a nobel peace prize for this island model.

    But then times change and hopefully, eventually someone will see that naivity is dangerous. And change there must be.

    Sad but very true how naive some people are. That type of thinking is exactly how you will get yourself into trouble. Better be safe than sorry. Would coulda shoulda won't save you when an attack or catastrophe happens.

    Classic back peddling at it's finest here courtesy of the Abe administration.

    Where are the supporters of this design now? "Japan is creative! Japan knows how to innovate! Show the world!"

    Please, this is Japan were talking about. There's a reason why the country has stalled since the 90s and produced little to nothing. So long as the old guard remains at the helm, innovation will continued to be stifled.

    But they are in the World Cup right? To be in the the tournament, they had to qualify. Like the other 32 teams, that means they have a chance. Are they going to win it? Maybe, maybe not. But as long as they are in, they have a chance. 1% is better than 0%!

    Lost in all this discussion is the perspective of outsiders like those in North America or Europe. There are HUNDREDS of sickos here in Canada that people would LOVE to get the death penalty because you see, prison here unlike Asia, is a joke. Prisoners get wifi, computers, tv time, nice cooked meals, reading time, etc.

    Why should a man who killed or raped a child be allowed to live?

    I'm not saying it's entirely healthy but having a McDonald's menu item once a week or month, cannot be bad. Of course, I say that since I do exercise daily, and am pretty careful about my daily intake. However, one day to pig out every couple of weeks is not bad.

    Although if you're eating McDonalds daily, then there's an even bigger issue...

    But this, is pretty interesting... Good luck, you poor souls.

    My family bought into the Toyota brand many decades ago, and it is still our number one choice (trucks, vans, SUVs, and sedans). We have never once had a problem with Toyota. Not one! And most of our cars were driven until 400k+ from child birth all the way until high school, college, and so forth. It's a shame that a select few are making it so hard for the rest.

    Toyota produces some of the safest, most reliable cars on this planet. And they do it at an incredibly fair price because they know how good their products are, and it's shown over the years due to them being consistently ranked number 1 (which in turn also drives their growth).

    You are absolutely right. English is, the language of business, global business. And it would appear, Japan still does not really grasp that concept very well. Whether it's due to the educational system or society, they need to understand and really take on the English language.

    @ Ms. Alexander

    Very excellent point. Where would they be without jukus...? I'd speculate theyd place a bit lower. Same with the other Asian countries. Obviously there are private schools and tutors here in North America as well, but definitely not as prevalent as in Asia.

    You've never been on the wall have you? I have, and it can be pretty bad.

    First off, the company should have known how bad the wall is, and it's been like this for a long time now, even with redevelopment projects. Knowing that though, the business wanted to make some money, and low/behold, a "trek through the wondrous great wall of china".

    It really depends on which sections you visit, but many of the sections are just traps waiting to happen.

    On another note, after that first incident in 09, this business should have been shut down permanently...

    Oh, North Korea, trying to flex their muscles again for some attention? I'm starting to feel sad for them. They really need to stop this posturing, and come into the 21st Century. There's no reason in this day and age for a 3rd world nation to be threatening the surrounding countries who are much more advanced...

    I highly doubt it will get very far to be honest. Appropriate response by the Japanese government.

    That's just your opinion. You can find good quality food anywhere, finding great, or exceptional quality can be very difficult. If every Japanese or Italian chef uses the same ingredients to make the same dishes, but why do they not come out the same? It's because of the skill level, and their understanding of food. While you may not be able to tell the difference between a 1 star restaurant and a 3 star restaurant, don't look down on people who can, and who want to increase their taste palette.

    While there are obviously some restaurants that are questionable... I've been to a couple Michelin star restaurants myself before-- they were awarded stars and also a few that I didn't even know had stars. I'd say yes, you can just tell the quality from the moment you take that first bite.

    I think the Japan of today needs not nukes. They got their second chance, after the war, to reestablish themselves with a new identity. And they've done just that without the help of nuclear armed weapons.

    Let's face is, should Japan go to war any time soon, they'd be absolutely demolished. This isn't 1940 anymore. Thus, their best role is a supporting role, and working alongside US intelligence, rather than on the battlefield. They don't have the manpower, technology, or equipment as countries that have HEAVILY invested into those things like... The super powers. Should there be war in the coming future will make it a battle between U.S, China, NK, and Russia-- not Japan.
