Not all asian leaders are anti-Japanese. Actually many are fans of Japan. Exceptions are only Korea and China.

The women all look like Philippinos. Anyway, Duterte is an "Omoshiroi Ojisan." Interesting daddy.
SchopenhauerOct. 22, 2016 - 08:01AM JST
Duterte thinks China is a very strict country about drugs while America is not. He thinks democracy (profit first capitalism) and hypocratic human rights in America is helping drug busineeses and abusers. No human rights for drug dealers and abusers in the Philippines and in China. I agree.

A Japanese media reported the empress was shocked to see the headline words of "while still alive." The empress took it the words suggesting the death of the emperor is not in the remote future.

China and North Korea are somwhat similar. Self-righteous attittude and lacking will of understanding others. It is the nature of the dictatorship.

Yasukuni shrine today is legally one of many religious organizations existing in Japan. It is a "private" religious group. I visited the shrine and found they justify the prewar Japanese militarism. It is OK if they think so since it is a private religious body. But it is not good the government members visit the shrine regularly as if Yasukuni has a special meaning to Japan. The War Dead Memorial Serivice on August 15 at Budokan is enough where the emperor and the prime minister attend.

The Essense of the mistake is that for a ageing country, invitation of the Olympic does not make sense.
SchopenhauerOct. 18, 2016 - 07:29AM JST
Koike: Mr. Bach we are sorry but it was a mistake that Japan invited the Olympic in 2020. Please find some other place to hold the Olympic in 2020.
Bach: It is too late.
Koike: Japanese people are realizing that it is foolish to spend so much money on sports games. We have more important ways to spend our tax money. How much we have to pay IOC if we cancel the Olympic in 2020?
SchopenhauerOct. 14, 2016 - 07:38AM JST
Recent Abe is becoming realistic. He is not advocating the change of the constitution as strongly as he was before and he is avoiding to visit Yasukuni in consideration of reactions of China and Korea. Emperor and the prime minister attend War Dead Memorial Service at Budokan on August 15 every year and it is enough. Most of Japanese people do not agree to change the peace constitution.

Bring other games also to the north. How can athletes play comfortably in muggy Tokyo in August?
SchopenhauerOct. 08, 2016 - 07:34AM JST
What was the excitement and the joy of Japanese people and politicians when the Olympic was decided at Tokyo? Today, we are showing a big embarassment to the world we decided to invite the Olylmpic but we are finding out we do not have money.

JCP did a good job. Not only politicians but all the human beings are born criminals. We have to be checked all the time.

While it is becoming a political issue, whole salers at Tsukiji have different problems. They are getting old and their businesses dwindling and some are folding down their businesses on this occasion. Big buyers including supermarkets are dealing directly with fishermen without going through wholesalers at Tsukiji.

Patience and persistency - "majime" is the nature and the virtue of Japanese people. That may have contributed in producing the good scientists and world class industries.
SchopenhauerOct. 04, 2016 - 07:26AM JST
Japan may be not as much as pessimistic views commented here.
SchopenhauerOct. 03, 2016 - 08:37AM JST
Japan do not get involved in religious strifes between Islam and Christianity. They have been fighting for centuries and will never end.
SchopenhauerOct. 03, 2016 - 07:42AM JST
Inviting 2020 Tokyo Olympic is a waste of money for Japan. It only increases the national debts. There are many more important fields Japan has to spend the money.

In a word, existences of an emperor and a royal family cannot coexist in the system of modern society in a strict sense.
SchopenhauerOct. 02, 2016 - 08:37AM JST
Many here do not know real problems that may arise by allowing emeper's abdication by his free will. For example the new situation will enable emeperor be chosen by decisions within the royal family. For instance, an emperor he is tired and bored with his job quit. An ambitious prince wants to become an emperor soon and force his father to retire, etc.

Media is making a fuss on a small matter. It is reasonable to build a heavy building on a strong concrete foundation rather than on earth laid on the ground. Why earth laid on the ground is safer against contaminations than the concrete foundation?
