    I have to say the trip up to the volcanic area was the most enjoyable and interesting to me, but continuing on to Lake Ashi on the other side was disappointing. The "pirate ship" cruise, in my opinion, is overrated. My advise is to turn back towards the rail line at Owakudani. You'll save considerable time and won't miss anything substantial.

    Chinese consumer agencies at the behest of government have bashed Western companies (including Apple) in the past for political purposes . And that's a shame because it creates doubts and compromises their integrity.

    I don't think he has to apologize. He only has to show respect and speak respectfully. I'm sure just doing that will create some criticism on both sides, but a majority will support his visit.

    "Now it is drug dealers or users, a year from now it will be another group who are threatening society, either rightly or not."

    "This week, he openly threatened to target human rights activists whom he accused of getting in the way of the purge." And then he will target (if he hasn't yet) politicians who oppose him, who will mysteriously be murdered by drug criminals, of course.

    There won't be any "progress" until Japan hands over billions of dollars to Russia. Then Russia will make an unimpressive offer leading to Japan handing over billions more.

    Japan is not an imbecile child that needs constant "protection and supervision".

    Aren't we tired to listen again and again this old fairy tale about eternal "protection and supervision" ? Japan is a close neighbour of Russia.

    The Putin propaganda machine out in full force. No matter how much Japan wants the Northern Territories back, it will NEVER forsake its USA ally for Russia's empty promises and shallow "friendship".

    Please name a situation when Japan is not able to defend itself. Japan is not an imbecile child that needs constant "protection and supervision".

    Russia, China, and North Korea are not military allies of Japan, no matter how much you want readers to believe.

    Since when did IOC ever thought of the economic burden of staging the olympics?

    You are correct. The only financial issue they have ever cared about was how much they were going to be paid.

    Let's hope that Japan sign it the peace treaty with Russia. Good opportunity for japan to break post-war regime imposed by the U.S.

    Please name another country that will come to Japan's aid in event of war. Who would defend Japan, Russia or the US?

    Most political observers believed that once Trump received his intelligence briefings, he would realize the awesome responsibility of being president by seeing how scary the world is around us. Now he's practically ignoring them, and to me, that's really scary on many levels.

    No problem with people extorting money from perverts as far as I'm concerned. Anything to stamp out that plague helps

    Ever hear the saying : "Two wrongs don't make a right."

    Yup, these are friendly missile batteries.

    Exactly. And what has changed to prompt Russia into installing these "defensive" anti-ship missiles?

    What this really exposes is an alarmingly thin-skinned man about to become president.

    I'm afraid Japanese authorities will ultimately not institute a complete ban, but propose some sort of compromise. They will use all these endless discussions and surveys only to justify how seriously they considered the issue.

    Why doesn't one of the Middle Eastern countries take this guy in, like Saudi Arabia?

    Why didn't he apply for asylum in Turkey if his family is already there?

    Why doesn't one of the western countries take this guy in, like the US, Canada, or Australia? They have even more room

    Question for all of you: How do you know his personal circumstances and why he ended up in Japan? Perhaps he was attracted to Japan for the same reasons as you, stability and safety.
