    I think Onaga is losing supports of Okinawans. They are getting wary of Onaga's uncompromising hostile stance to the central government.

    China and Korea are rewriting histories to their advantages for one reason they cannot find anything to blame about today's Japan.

    When the coffers of State is empty due to heavy debts, politicians promises generous aids when they visit poor countries. From where are they generating money?

    A Chinese traveller to Japan when asked what he thinks is the best thing about Japan, he answered instantly it is a freedom of speech. We take it for granted but not everywhere in the world.

    The islands are not important. We need Russia for power balances in Asia. America's commitment to Japan is weakening. A good example is Senkaku. U.S. Forces on Okinawa was just sitting and drinking beer proving no detterance to China.

    Abe may be thinking Japan needs one more strong friend economically as well as geopolitically in view of expansion of China.

    For them, the governance of their own country China is the first and foremost concern. They do not care about foreign relations very much. For them China is the universe.

    As CH3CHO stated, in America, in October, NFL opens and MLB will have the World Series. Also in europe, they have soccer in October. As such, there remains only sweltering summer which do not overlap other major sports events. Japan also is blamed accepting it knowing that Tokyo is crazy hot in August. IOC and Japan Olympic Committee do not think about conditions of players at all.

    Inada at 57 and Abe at 61, they don't know true miseries of the bereaved families who lost their bread-earning fathers in the war. I think those who go to Yasukuni are mostly former officers and their families. They are the people who feel nostalgia about the imperial army and adore the shrine. Bereaved families of many conscripted soldiers went through undescribable hardships and many do not go to Yasukuni as my friend I mentioned yesterday. They think it was a crime committed by the nation which lightly treated people's lives.

    My old friend lost his father in the WW II. He was conscripted and died leaving his young wife and a baby. His mother did not remarry and brought up her son by herself. He was my classmate. He and his mother did not go to Yasukuni. He even hated to go. At the time I was a child, there were many unhappy families who lost their father in the war.

    Temperature in Rio during the Olympics in August is around 20 centigrade. In Tokyo it will be above 30. The main stadium will not have air conditioning. Let them play in an appropriate temperature. If Japan cannot afford, they should not have invited the games. Spend money!

    Emperor said all reasonable things. It contrasted to the hard head bureaucrats and the government that try to adhere to the current law.

    I am not all against saving the cost. I am most worried about that the open air stadium being built will not have air-conditioners. In sweltering summer of Tokyo, athletes as well as audiences will have hard time without air-conditioners.

    This guy in the center of the picture is the culprit of problems involving the Tokyo Olympics. He is what is called a "ro-gai" person -- an old man causing problems. He is reigning the the organization and others cannot talk back to him who was once a prime minister of Japan. It was a big mistake of Abe who put Mori to the position.

    A similar incident happened some time ago. A young man who works at a facility for the aged commited murder. I think to work at such a place gives a lot of stresses and is very depressing. It is unfortunate that young people have to find jobs at such places.
