    hahah! who came up with that??? I live in NZ and I can say for certain that there is plenty of corruption going on here. What a joke!

    Corruption exists everywhere, including NZ. The point being relative to everywhere else in the world corruption is very low in NZ. I live in NZ and the ranking makes sense to me - we also have the least corrupt police force bar none.

    I will tell you about a certain Chinese man. A 50s Chinese man who graduated from Beijing (Peking) University and lived in university dormitory for 4 years in 1980s testified as follows, “It is the middle of 1980s that I heard about the Nanjing Massacre for the first time. I have never once heard such a historical incident before then. I asked some dormitory roommates and classmates who came from Nanjing. All of them answered that they didn’t know The Nanjing Massacre. Nobody knew then. Why? If it happened in 1937 actually, their parents and grandparents who must have lived in Nanjing, then and could have seen and heard that the Massacre happened. But their parents and grandparents didn’t tell the story of Nanjing Massacre to their children and grandchildren. Don’t you think it's strange? I was born in 1960s' Nagasaki and was brought up there. My house was located 0.5km from the ground zero of the Atomic Bomb. I had repeatedly heard about people’s different actual experiences of Atomic Bomb since my infancy. When I was in school, or when I played in the park, or when I was at home, I often heard many and varieties of Atomic Bomb survivors’ actual experiences. I was so scared these stories. I had entirely been traumatized. I became unable to go to the toilet alone at night.

    Thank you for demonstrating blatant fake news - we needed the perspective - it's 2017 after all.

    I think many on this forum are a bit confused about the whole issue and still see it as some kind of attack against Japan. Please just do a little more reading into it - a wide range of sources, not your usual sources.

    DieRealityCheckDEC. 29, 2016 - 01:14PM JST smith NO I am not at all. Ones cannot undestand comfort women unless trying to understand how women had been treated in the long history of the penninsula Try not to discuss hiding your own pubic area but concentrate attacking on the same of other, That's exactly what you're doing smith. Shame on you. and in many cases murdered after

    ridiculous exaggeration again. or are you talking about the vietnamese victims slaughtered agfter the rape by Koreans?

    DieRealityCheck your attitude may have come about from the education system and media not telling the whole story of WWII and the atrocities committed by Japan. It is well known that Japan was among the most brutal war mongers in history, at second only to the Nazis in the 20th century. Murder, torture and rape of innocent men, women and children was not only common and widespread it was encourage by military leaders. There is no denying the facts - and if you had any knowledge of Japanese history and culture through the ages you would have no trouble believing this.

    Brave people fighting for their grandmother's memories, honour and dignity. Anyone who attacks a demonstration like this is heartless and running from the past.

    Fukui had concerned with the Suwon's proposal to Freiburg. Some people misunderstand Fukui's concern as unjustified one. However, in fact, that is the rational one. 1. As a matter of fact, the statue is working as a symbol to accuse Japan of that the "comfort women" issue was brutal crime systematically committed by Japan as its national policy. It is engraved on the same type of statue in Los Angeles that "In memory of more than 200,000 Asian and Dutch women who were removed from their homes .... to be coerced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Armed Forces of Japan ...." 2. Japan denies that accusation because no one ever found the objective/verifiable basis. For example, it is known no one ever showed even one name of killed/disappeared victims. There are no graves of them. There are no record about the parents who would have searched for them after the war. 3. Japan insists "comfort women" was one of legal jobs at that time. Only about there rarely existed tragedy by lawless soldiers, Japan acknowledged that and apologized with full respect for victims of those. 4. As seen above, regarding the determination-of-facts, both countries are still in diplomatic/political dispute.

    What you are in effect saying is that the hundreds of young (now old) women from around the world (not just Korea) are all lying about being gang raped as slaves for years by Japanese soldiers, and all the other witnesses.

    Nice. And all just so Japanese like yourself can save face.

    There is one word that is probably NOT in the Japanese dictionary and thats "fly tipping" its all to common here in the UK, itinerant travellers are the worst offenders, but also house hold owners are a close second, most are to lazy to take there old large items or garden waste to the local tip, so they drive into the country side and empty there car and trailer waste into the nearest layby or farmers gate.

    Nope. Sorry, to ruin your image here, but same thing happens in Japan. I often see old TV's, fridges and household waste dumped when hiking around Japan.

    Ainu and Okinawans are not protected because they are from within Japan.

    The only 'pure' Japanese are Ainu people, other Japanese populations are descendants of Chinese and Koreans who came over. So, if what you are saying is correct everyone except Ainu are protected.

    Christopher GlenAPR. 03, 2016 - 07:49PM JST Yes, this is one of the things Japan does well: respect for personal property. Heaven forbid you leave your umbrella unattended though!

    Or your bicycle. Lets's do a social experiment around the world and see which country steals the most umbrellas and bicycles!

    There are a million anonymous blogs out there. Why does this one person get the Prime Minister's attention? Looks like a con to me.

    The blogger probably isn't a mother at all, it's a professional PR person within a Ministry. Nice trick though, the sheep will buy it.

    Or, maybe it's not. It certainly points to a real and urgent problem in Japan, so who cares.

    I mean;

    "The infection is the fourth ever recorded in Japan, but the first case since the virus started spreading widely in Latin America last year, the Health Ministry said on Thursday."

    warispeaceFEB. 26, 2016 - 08:14AM JST @letsberealistic Read the whole sentence, which qualifies "first".

    Japan’s first case of the infection since the virus started spreading widely in Latin America last year.

    Still ambiguous for the reader - how about putting both references to infections in the* same* sentence: "The infection is the fourth ever recorded in Japan but the first case since the virus started spreading widely in Latin America last year, but the fourth the Health Ministry said on Thursday."

    I do not think it was a bad idea. Panic would have occurred and everyone would have wanted to evacuate Tokyo. Radiation in small dosages is not really that bad. We are over cautious.

    That's doesn't make sense - there was no panic once the truth about there being a meltdown was eventually revealed! They thought they could hide it, THAT's why they didn't initially reveal the truth about the meltdown, NOT to avoid panic.

    Editor please correct this contradiction:

    "The boy is the fourth case of Zika virus infection in Japan. "

    Who cares what these people think. Top poster said it best.

    Anyone who cares about human rights since that's what they work to uphold - apart from China who would't support Amnesty International? We all might need them one day.

    Though its shocking news,but we cant accuse Japanese of such crimes as a whole,even if it happens so often,because we are talking about 140 millions in Japan,what does such a thing indicate in such a big population?!everywhere we can find such crimes,but we cant make it as a characteristic of people of any country.When some one shot innocent people in streets,schools,university,church,etc almost very often in States,we cant accuse Americans,these are exceptions.Japan the same.

    127 million not 140 million - hope your not Japanese ;)

    Fair comment though it's not entirely true.

    The US has a massively disproportionate number of murders and gun violence compared to anywhere else in the developed world. Japan, on the other hand, has a disproportional number of sexual crimes against women like sexual molestation (chikan) compared to any other country in the world, so its' not outside the realms of possibility to say say Japan has a comparatively high level of child abuse and infanticide.

    It's all about the levels and rates - what is the rate of child abuse and infanticide in Japan? And is it accurate? Judging from the frequency of news reports it's high.
