    Fire the Environment Minister. Get rid of all the nitwit Environment Ministry people who support this insane idea. Moreover, keep the decontanimated soil and any other soil from the affected area out of public parks and green areas. To save space here, re-read "zichi's" comments above ... plus comments from the others above who abhor this idea. They are right ...

    Now that Nagoya has agreed to rebuild the present castle keep with one made of wood, like the original keep, I, too, support such a move. I have been to Nagoya Castle several times and rate it below numerous other castles I have visited throughout Japan. Just hope I am still able to do all that walking around the keep and up to the top floor when it is completed in 2022 or later ...

    Enjoyed "zichi's" two castle items above ...

    I wish her luck. But believe business will be light as I doubt if many local residents there will want to see a movie at such an establishment ... especially more than once. Sado has a very nice "gold mine museum" ... but when I visited there I was the only one exploring the site. Sado is a nice island ... but also a very quiet one ... as are most islands around Japan.

    As mentioned above, when China allows its schools to teach accurately about Mao's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution from 1966-1976 and the Tianamen Square protests (the June 4th incident) in 1989 then it can start telling other countries how to teach their students. Do Chinese students actually believe what they are being taught about their own history in their own schools? But then young minds are easy to control ...

    That the military-building Chinese are worried about Japan's adding an extra anti-submarine aircraft carrier to its fleet is a joke. While the Chinese are busy building up their military they don't want anybody else to challenge them anywhere. So Japan ... and most probably a lot of other Asian countries ... had better be prepared to take on a strong Chinese military front.

    Being that he has had much business experience with Japan, he should make a good ambassador. So far so good ...

    Somebody's lying ... but who? Kagoike seemed rather truthful in his testimonies given on Thursday plus at the press conference at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan later in the day. So there is no other option than to have Abe-san's wife testify at the Diet, too. As everybody is giving a sworn to tell the truth testimony, somebody is not telling the truth and must go to jail for lying. And this living drama will surely continue ... in the halls of government.

    This means that the price of chicken will rise locally. Guess we'll be seeing more chicken from China, Thailand and elsewhere from overseas. Bird flu ... bad stuff ...

    The Major League scouts got to see some really good Japanese pitching. Bet we'll see some of them in the Majors down the road. 'Twas a pitchers' duel all the way. Next up: power hitting vs. power hitting in the U.S. vs. Puerto Rico. Should be a good game.

    This has probably been reported before, but this is the first time I've seen this bit of personal information: The 65-year-old has a reputation for fastidiousness and as president reportedly refused to use toilets that had been employed by others, with her staff said to insist facilities be replaced before she arrived on official visits.

    Wonder what she will do if she has to go to prison? Will she get a new toilet installed in her cell? And what if someone else should use it? Well ... that's her problem ...

    Am still not used to putting two runners on base from the 11th inning on. But it does save on extra use of a pitcher's arm in long drawn out extra inning games. 'Twas a good game. Next Puerto Rico will face either Japan or the U.S. for the overall title. Japan has the edge in pitching, so it will be up to U.S.'s hitters to get to them. Should be a good game.

    My neighbor is thin ... and she wants to get thinner. She envies her "super thin" university classmates ... and wants to try to look like them. To do so, she recently went two weeks without eating any food ... and ended up in the hospital. Upon being released, she was told to eat properly. Well, she found a new way to get thin. Skip breakfast, then eat a hefty lunch. She would then go into a bathroom, put a finger down her throat and throw up what she just ate. She said she felt really good after this. To make a long story short, she is now doing hospital time once again for a body that is going haywire. I saw her the other day and she said she is back to eating again, and even had breakfast that particular day.

    Apparently the thin look is in among young (and even old) women ... and undoubtedly other girls/older women are doing similar things to get thin. Nice to be thin ... but gotta feed the body what it needs to remain healthy.

    Was there today (Monday). I thought today was the opening day ... and a guard told me it is April 20, which is what the article above says. The building is finished ... and the stores are setting up their sales areas. Should be an interesting place to visit ... when it opens.

    As said before numerous times ... forget Toyosu. If the market at Tsukiji must be moved, find a safe location for it and move it there. If anything must be moved to the Toyosu site, move Ishihara-san and his family there.

    When actually living in countryside cities in Japan, one tends to learn all the very nice things about the local area. So, after a while, Manny might enjoy living in Kochi ... and traveling around Shikoku. I enjoyed Kochi very much as well as exploring Shikoku. Lots to see and do in that area ...

    If these people would just tell the truth from the outset of the shady revelations things wouldn't be as bad. But they keep saying things like "I can't remember" and "I don't know," which makes them sound even more guilty than what they probably are.

    Just finished reading an excellent book about nuclear disasters that includes some coverage of the Fukushima nuclear power plant fiasco. It's "Atomic Accidents -- A history of nuclear meltdowns and disasters from the Ozark Mountains to Fukushima" by James Mahaffey. As the title indicates, it is all about the nuclear industry, from the beginning to just about today. If you are in the least bit interested interested about what happened at Fukushima ... and elsewhere in nuclear history ... I highly recommend that you read this book. It can be found at bookstores in Japan that sell English-language books. Yes ... there is definitely more to come on the Fukushima scene ...

    Tillerson doesn't need a batch of White House reporters tailing him around Asia. The American-operated news agencies and newspapers have local based correspondents that can do the job just as well. Besides, locally based correspondents should know the local turf much better than those following from Washington. In addition to the correspondents, there will also be throngs of local journalists from the local news media on hand. So Tillerson should be getting enough news coverage overall, from all angles.

    A good, exciting game. However, while watching it on TV I got tired of the commentators continuously saying "major leaguer(s)." They used this term so many times it almost sounded "racist." Why couldn't they just say "the Netherlands," "Holland" or "Dutch"? It begins to sound as if the poor Japanese league player is going up against a much more powerful foe the way the term "major leaguer" is bounced around. Monday's daytime TV shows also kept coming up with the same element of "usage" (would that be the correct term here?) ... pointing out that it is "major leaguer" this or "major leaguer" that. Oh well, guess that "major leaguer" term will be used throughout the rest of the tourney. Whatever ...

    What kind of a story is this? Sounds like it was given to the press by something that is trying to cover up vital statistics. Sorry, but even though I am a mere layman when compared to a doctor, I cannot go with what the story says. I get the creepy feeling that we are being lied to about something that is bigger than what we are expected to believe.
