    I hope Governor that you can convince the Trump administration to withdraw US forces from Okinawa. Ever since the end of WWII, the US kept the Japanese Self Defense Force on a tight leash and helped China grow in strength. China is now strong and able to defend itself from the Japanese. The US Forces is no longer required nor needed on Okinawa or on mainland Japan. The cost of stationing US naval and land forces in Japan is very costly. So please convince Mr. Trump to bring the boys home.

    JAL up to its OLD tricks. Nothing changed for this airlines. Current senior management trained by the old regime and bad practices keep on growing.

    It amazes me all these years later that people are still denying that Japanese troops committed the Rape of Nanking. Former Japanese soldiers need to speak out and tell their stories about their China experience. I talked with two former IJA soldiers who fought in China. Their experience left no doubt in my mind about the crimes committed by the IJA troops in China.

    Thank you Governor Koike for your effort to break down male oriented barriers. Women, after all, gave birth to baby boys who later became men. Women should be treated to a much better station in Japan. I would certainly hope that my mother and sisters are treated on their merits and not based on their sex.

    You all should tell Washington to Can It. Yasukuni Shrine is a dedicated cemetery for the war dead. There are other soldiers than just the Allied War Tribunal convicted war criminals buried there.

    Hosting Olympic games cost money which Japan doesn't have. To imply that other cities should shoulder the cost is nonsense.

    Man, give up Obama. All them Democrats trying to spin "not my fault" and claim of default win by Trump are just sore losers. Clinton was beaten by Trump, enough said. Let it go.

    Yes sir, changes are coming!!! Japan, Korea and some European countries will see their cost of basing US troops increase. Also, be prepared to justify the high tariff placed on American goods.

    The court should make the parents pay for a brand new police car and send the teens to a juvi facility for a whole year.

    WOW !!! Normally, unit's written activities are kept as historical record. Can't believe a JGSDF unit "destroyed" written records unless it was officially transferred to a disk.

    Crybaby Democrats. Just because Hillary, the woman and a Democrat, didn't cut muster, the crybabies tried their best to derail Donald. But hey folks, he may not be Your President, just like Obama wasn't our President, get on with life and quit bitching.

    Not so bad when compared to Joe Stalin's purges. We hope young Kim don't try to copycat Stalin's purges to solve the food shortages in north Korea.

    What happened to freedom of navigation? I would hope to see MSDF destroyers cruising the South China Sea.

    Mr. Abe, when are you going to build a coast guard and weather stations on the Senkaku islands? Booths on the ground is a sure fire way to tell the world that the islands belong to Japan. Use it or loose it. Make up your mind and take decisive action.

    You see the sneaky way the Chinese will try to get an edge around the islands. PM Abe need to put an early warning radar, weather, and coast guard stations on the Senkaku islands SO that there is doubt that the islands belong to Japan as it did before the war when Japanese fishermen used the islands to process their catch.

    Emperor Akihito should be granted his wish and retired with pension with the rest of the aged populace. He can keep an eye out for Naruhito and ease his way onto the throne.

    More reason for the Japan to build Coast Guard or weather station on the islands. Japan must show some backbone and firmly establish footprints on these islands before the Chinese can land troops to reclaim them.
