    For children under the age of 18, cartoons, computer games, movies with animation etc...are all good. Now days with people of all ages in Japan playing these games everywhere and not using good manners to do so is a big problem. Hope everyone finds their dream job.

    Americans living/working in Japan are a special group of people. People with degrees working for less than 1/2 of what their degrees are worth in America, all in the name of Japan. Trump has been in the office 5 days and has many more to go to get the country back in order and getting rid of common cores is on the agenda, you people remember the program most of you were educated with, the one the Communist Progressive Liberals indoctrinate students with, for 25 years or so. Hoping to come soon also, stop paying for people to study in other countries with taxpayer dollars.

    Please stop with the propaganda that American controlled media, the 6 of them, spread and Japan's media runs with.
    No news for what Japan does to protect their trade and boarders, labeled as isolationist. The simple points Trump has made are showing he is against the globe agenda and so are many of usA.

    Hello writer,

    You put in the headline civil leader attacked...you did this to serve your purpose.

    He has not done much of anything for the people he is suppose to be serving, what Trump referred to in the Tweeter post. He is the epitome of why term limits should be put on congress.

    People complaining about Trump, here in Japan are mostly younger than 50 years old, some exceptions and have been educated in America by a educational system that has for many years been broken. Teachers with agendas of the Communist Progressive Liberals program, using the Common Cores system. Trump speaks the way most Americans used to and hopefully will help to bring back clear, direct and to the point speaking and stop the evasive style used a lot today with words that say nothing and with a constant smile of assured smugness. Trump gave the greatest speech in history and should you not support him, that is okay. don' t become, physically confrontational with people who do or use violence to make your points. The American government has been corrupt far to long and Trump is giving government back to the people is the big message.

    Until all of Japan and all Japanese look at Okinawa for what it is. Not what it was 250 years ago. A prefecture of Japan with Japanese citizens living in it. Will progress move forward. All prefectures like to promote their own styles and traditions in different ways. People should stop referring to Okinawa as if it is something other than what it is.

    A world epidemic has been predicted for many many years by scientists and this could be the one to spread, in one form or another. Staying alert and self preparedness is something everyone can do. To disregard the story as meaningless is a mistake. Also it is one of the few stories I read on JapanToday that has substance and news worthy.

    Having gone to drive-in's to see Bond movies as a kid. I can say that I have seen most James Bond movies on the Big screen. As it used to be called, not long ago. The excitement of hearing about a new Bond movie and reading about it builds the excitement. When the movie hits the big screen, wow. The last 3 movies with Daniel Craig were pretty good and worthy of the Bond saga. If the story line is good and well written, I don't think who is the director is all that important. Of course actors are doing different roles in between movies that have a series to them. Otherwise they wouldn't be a very good actor, playing only one role.

    Japan's economy has been for a very long time, not good. Abe received the votes to make changes, the voters wanted to see take place. Many before him have tried to use different ideas and approaches to resolve the problems. Reading and hearing all the things that are wrong with Abe's proposals and ideas, what is not going to work and are bad ideas. Where are the policies and ideas that will make positive economic recovery possible? What are they? Who has the better plan for Japan's economy? And why wasn't this person, who has the better ideas, elected to office?

    andrewfx51FEB. 24, 2013 - 09:46PM JST @bokuwamo Tu quoque.

    Most posters would acknowledge the economic problems in their respective countries, but directing attention towards the US or Europe doesn't make Abe's economic policies any more credible. Nor is it the topic of this article.

    I will wait to see how long it is before this gets deleted. "Nor is it the topic of this article"

    Really, your a moderate as well as poster? The subject is economics Isn't it? Japan economy is not allowed to be compared to other countries in relationship in the subject matter of the article?

    Can't help but to comment on this vandalism. Not that long ago this would be unheard of in Japan. When you are over 60, the statement of "not long ago" holds a different meaning than someone in their 30's. There are always comments made about how Japan doesn't change this or that. Seeing these type of stories in the news more and more, along with serious violence stories. I would say that it can't be said, that Japan does not change.

    The guy, Abe is trying to do something to improve things. There is a lot that has been done before him that makes his ideas harder to get in motion. He got voted in because most of the voters thought he has the right ideas to effect a positive change to the economy, in general. Comments on how he is doing being made by foreigners points of view, is the essences of this webpage. Are the economies of your own countries doing all the terrific? Reading and hearing about the worlds largest economes, it seems as if all countries have serious problems and have yet to have the answers to their problems. Is Abe suppose to be some type of messiah and do something that a lot of other countries can't seem to do?

    Riding trains in Japan is pretty much the same as riding trains in New York or Chicago, have lived in both also. You can use manners and be polite. You can be rude and pushy. I have found that most people respond better to being treated nicely. When I first started riding trains in Japan, talking was considered rude by most older Japanese. That being over 20 years ago and times have changed to what it is today. Meeting or seeing strange behavior is not unusual on the trains today, everyone has stories about the most strangest thing they have seen. Ignoring most of it, when possible and confronting some of it when appropriate, has been my strategy. Getting use to it all, in whatever place you are using a train. Is something some people are able to do and others not. The "not's" should reconsider their options.

    Laptops stop a lot of people from carrying them around with them. Tablets cause people to poke you and elbow you as they are using it publicly. My vote is for more laptops or people who can use tablets with more consideration for people close by.

    I think that it is the one that Japan uses and I use it everyday without any problems. There are a lot of tings that could be better in the world. When moving to Japan, I never gave a thought to what should be changed and I still don't. Enjoy living here and if a time comes that I don't enjoy it, I will leave. Many things have been changed in America and not all have been good. Banks have always handled the winning hand and continue to.

    For me the obvious is a movie based on facts has a lot of lead way, it's a movie for selling tickets. Documentaries are suppose to be facts presented in a movie form. I don't think there ever was a movie made that said based on real facts and didn't change things to attract a larger audience.

    bass4funkFEB. 23, 2013 - 08:23AM JST @yuri And Japan has always gotten away with this and the world DEMANDS that Japan catches up to the rest of the modern world and does the right thing.

    Sounds like you had a custody case past or present. If you think that the Hague act will do anything that is going to start bringing kids back from Japan, I feel sad for you.

    Read the act and all of the things it does not do and the things that it says it will do are mostly with the cooperation of the other country. In simple terms, it is not giving any one country the right to go into another country and enforce their laws. It makes requests that go through a long process before they are considered for action.

    It is not a concern of mine about the relationship that Japan and North Korea have. My concern is that they are doing things with nuclear testing that have a purpose for them. What that purpose is, unknown. The tightening of access to the financial world and much harder trading restrictions should be done, regardless of the Japan North Korea relationship and O-bum-a is not the person to trust to keep the job done.

    tmarieFEB. 22, 2013 - 10:39PM JST Reformed, glad you can admit they're not perfect. That's all you needed to do.

    Been out, gave come back. Leaving and seeing the better places out and "having" to come back... I know I'm making fair comparisons. Others who've not lived anywhere besides home and Japan can't in my opinion.

    Don't understand what you are trying to say here? I will assume you are not Japanese from your postings, if you do not like a country, why stay? Comparing countries is good. Moving there and expecting the country to change because your living there now, well come on. You seem intelligent, this is realistic thinking?
