6500yen for a taxi! That's 70bucks! I would not be happy if I was punched and robbed.

In South Korea, jail. In Japan nothing. The worst thing is that Abe steps down and Ishihara JR takes over.

@duke don't forget his lie about the ongoing nuke disaster and olympics. Best point about this story is now Suga is involved.

The last snap election for no reason, only about half the people bothered to vote. Abe got just over half, which is about 25% of voters. Yomuri survey of 1000 people. There are 120,000,000 people in Japan.

When Abe quit last time amongst corruption and the worst possible popularity, he said he had a stomach ache. I'm sure Ishihara knows that. He was supposed to appear for 3 hours, but the panel let him go after 80 mins. The smug smile on his face when he left tells all.

@striker I agree, similar experience. This could also be a great marketing ploy. Surely the govt should make compulsory driving tests more frequent and develop better transport. In Kyoto senior citizens can get a free bus pass.

Japanese companies rescueing a failing French nuke company. Already taxpayers money are paying Abe's two luxury airlines to visit, plus hotels etc. I guarantee next 6 months news will be the Japanese taxpayers will "fund" the economic development and cooperation between French and Japanese nuclear industry.

He made money and fame. He stays in nice hotels and have you seen his house? Struggling/upcoming artists should get a helping hand, but as a musician, your choice is I did for passion, or, I did it for the money.

More worried about the Japanese habit of not washing your hands after the toilet. My ametuer survey is 50% for men and 38% for women, based on supermarkets and combini stores. Although my study only involves about 50 people a day over 10 years, it shocks me to the extent I never touch toilet door handles. Flu can be iradicated by not treating animals badly and stopping exposure to Fukushima which effects the immune system.

Posted in: For many decades, Japan has played an important role in providing development and humanitarian aid to countries throughout East and Southeast Asia, but it was long ‘hindered,’ so to speak, by its pacifist defense policy. It can now become more directly engaged in regional securitization efforts. For some, this is reassuring. For others, it is cause for concern.
