Japan, a candidate of the 2020 Summer Olympics, is a exclusivistic country, that continues contemptful demonstrations.
In Tokyo, extremely aggressive demonstrations targeting Korea is being held. At these demonstrations, Japanese are using violent wordings such as "send the Koreans to gas chambers," and "let's hang Koreans." Japan's demonstrations are no different from the ones held by the Nazis.
The bigger problem is that even when the demonstrators resort to violence and social disorder, the Japanese police are doing nothing to restrain these behaviors. Rather, they are protecting the demonstrators. This is because the violent demonstrators have ties to the Yakuza, violent criminal organizations. Moreover, the media is heavily influenced by the parties related to the violent demonstrations. This implies that Japan's extreme rightist politicians are involved as well.
Some may think that these demonstrators are only a small part of Japan. In contrary to this belief, most Japanese believe that they are victims of a nuclear bomb, rather than that they are past war criminal nation. Instead of repenting for their past war crimes, they are denying their crimes against comfort women, and invasions. Germany, a war crime nation during WWII just as Japan is very different.
Moreover, Japan is creating territorial disputes with neighboring nations, and is attempting to regress back to past militarism.
After over a year and a half, not a single person has been held accountable for the catastrophic accident that happened at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in March 2011.
The report of the independent investigation commission set up by the Japanese Diet published in July 2012 unequivocally states that the accident was man-made; TEPCO did not take appropriate measures against the potential risks of tsunami already identified; and the collusion of the government oversight agencies with the nuclear power industry compromised safety. [for the report, go to
In June 2012, a group of over 1,300 people who lived in Fukushima at that time filed criminal charges against 33 individuals, which include former TEPCO executives, government officials in charge of nuclear safety in Japan, and the current Radiation Health Risk Management Adviser appointed by Fukushima Prefecture. The charges were filed with the Fukushima District Prosecutor's Office on the grounds of professional negligence resulting in death and injury, and environmental pollution offense.
The written statements submitted by each plaintiff tell stories of agony of how their daily lives were suddenly uprooted and their human rights violated. No government assistance has been provided for the evacuation of children, and most have been left in dangerously contaminated areas in Fukushima. The impact of radiation exposure on their health is becoming more evident, while the government continues to deny this grim reality.
The second group of an additional 10,000 plaintiffs from the rest of Japan are expected to join this case on November 15, 2012. Now we need to put pressure on the Fukushima District Prosecutor's Office, so that it will not just go through motions, but conduct a thorough investigation that would result in the actual prosecution of the individuals charged. This is only the first step, and a critical one.
We, as people concerned about peace in the world, write to call your attention to growing tensions Japan has provoked in East Asia in its territorial disputes with neighboring countries, and urge your actions to exercise a U.S. role in deterring the continuation of such provocation.
As the world marks the 67th anniversary of Japan’s unconditional surrender that concluded World War II, we are again haunted by the memories of Japan’s militarism and imperialistic expansionism that propelled its invasion of Asia and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Japan has never formally repented for its atrocities against the world. Its leaders continue to worship the Yasukuni Shrine where war criminals’ tablets are kept. Its right-wing activists have repeatedly sought to rewrite textbooks to distort its war history. There are more signs that its extremists, in a heady romanticism with Japan’s prewar “glory” in which violence and aggression were exalted, have been stepping up their attempt to revive Japan’s militarist past.
A most recent example is the Japanese move to “nationalize” the Diaoyu (called Senkaku by Japan) Islands. The move is reopening the old wounds an imperialistic Japan inflicted upon the people of the region and fueling concerns about peace and stability in the area.
The Diaoyu Islands are unequivocally territories of China, which Japan failed to return to their rightful owner at the end of World War II.
The Cairo Declaration of 1943 asserted that “Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the First World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa, and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed.”
Numerous historical documents, some dating back to as early as 1403, recorded the Diaoyu Islands as part of China. Japan seized the islands and Taiwan after the Sino-Japanese war in 1894. In 1941, a court in Tokyo ruled that the Diaoyu Islands belonged to Taiwan, settling a dispute between Taiwan and Ryukyus (Okinawa) – both governed by Japan at the time – regarding the governance of the islands. Throughout history, fishermen from Taiwan have been fishing around the Diaoyu Islands.
With Japan’s return of Taiwan to China in 1945, the Diaoyu Islands should also have been returned as part of Taiwan. However, in the Okinawa Reversion Agreement signed in 1971, the U.S. ambiguously and inappropriately included the Diaoyu Islands as part of Ryukyus that it reverted to Japan the next year, thus planting the main cause for the current dispute.
It's just for know who love Jin Akanishi. Thanks.

Autumn Lynn Teixeira went on a vacation with her parents to Japan a few weeks ago. They told her that they would come back in a month. Shortly after they told her that they are staying in Japan.
Autumn and I are about to start High School and wouldn't want to miss it for the world. She was depressed when she found out she was staying in Japan.
I'm trying to persuade her parents into letting Autumn come back. She doesn't want to be in Japan.
Kana have had a lot of concerts in Europe, because she really loves her fans.
If she knew about her Romanian fans, she would probably think to come to Romania.
If we get enough signatures, I will send her the petition. Our purpose is to bring her in Romania at Otaku 2013.
Japan moved closer to restarting the first of the nation's 50 idled nuclear plants as the prime minister signaled that he might order a start-up as early as next week.
Now, the fate of Kansai Electric Power Company's Ohi plant reactor #3 and #4 in western Japan are in the hands of prime minister Noda after Fukui prefecture formally accepted restart of 2 reactors on 16th June after Ohi town/Fukui prefectural nuclear commission approval.
Some experts are warning that another big earthquake may happen this very year. If they are right, another Fukushima disaster will be inevitable.
If the three active fault lines around Ohi power plant move together it could reach 1,270gul. The Ohi plants safety stress tests are based on 700gul, only taking into account worst case scenario for two faults not the three. Wakasa Gulf of Fukui prefecture holds not only Ohi but Takahama, Mihama, Tsuruga and Monjyu; total of 14 nuclear plants.
As a responsible member of the international community, Japan should not make a decision which exposes the world to a new risk of radioactive contamination.
We call on all citizens of the world to stand with us and appeal to Prime minister Noda before he make a final decision on the restart of Ohi nuclear power plant.
If the restart of Ohi is forced to go ahead, the rest of the nuclear power plants in Japan may also be restarted.
Please spread the word, we do not need another Fukushima!
Many countries and regions other than the US have Hello Kitty magazines and we feel that the US could use one.
The University of Canberra has proposed to cancel the Japanese Language Program. As a current student of the program I urge everybody to help convince the preservation of such a great university course.
With many students in the middle of their degrees this cancellation would cause so much stress and many problems. Especially for the ones who decided to go to university to specifically learn the Japanese Language.
The Japanese Program has allowed many students to learn the language and culture, which is important in the current globalizing world and especially in our very multicultural Australia. It has helped create great friendships with many Japanese students on exchange at the university and also while benefiting local students, it is a very attractive course for international students.
The university has agreements with several universities in Japan and while we have students anticipating going on exchange in Japan, we also receive many Japanese students to learn English. This is a great way to represent our university and our country.
Please help us maintain this excellent, well developed language course with the best, most encouraging teachers by signing this petition.
The past students, current students and future students appreciate your help.
We want a concert of Japanese singer Namie Amuro in Italy!
In WWII the Japanese committed a genocide on the Chinese, Korean, Filipinos, Malays, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Indonesians, and the Burmese. The Japanese murdered women, children and men who weren't part of the war and sometimes raped them. They made women their sex slaves. One of their most horrific act was the Rape of Nanjing.
They committed cruel acts on POWs lie bury them alive, used chemical weapons to kill many ( Hilter refused to use and the Nazis had tons of chemical weapons ), etc.. Find out more at your local library or search Japanese War Crimes.
Hunting whales has dated back to 3000BC and should have been made illegal years ago. The ocean is their home just like the land is ours, they did nothing to hurt us so why should we kill them?
They are beautiful creatures and they will become extinct if you ignore all the petitions people are making to get your attention.
Japan is considered as an easternmost small island with limited resources. Yet, if the volume and the depth of the sea are considered, Japan ranks fourth in the world. With this favourite marine background, Organization of Mobile Hospital International （OMHI）was established as a fair and independent non-governmental organization. We aim primarily for constructing Japan-made hospital ships, which help contribute to world peace.
Our proposed hospital ship will deal with natural disasters such as the earthquake or an outbreak of epidemic (e.g. Bird Flu and new influenza.) As for international need and demands, hospital ship will provide worldwide humanitarian support in devastated areas, for example Indochina, Haiti and Chile, where quake and tsunami are in the offing. We will help to maintain the security and to improve the safety in conflict regions.
Nowadays, registered hospital ships come from 14 countries and 4 non-governmental organizations, but none of them belongs to Japan. There is no denying that hospital shipwill provide medical services, whereas world peace is a more important issue to deal with. Japan could make fairly contribution to the issue by utilizing her oceanographic technology.
We have started this project since a private workshop held in Tokyo in February 25, 2011. Influential people from various quarters participated in the workshop and exchanged their opinions actively. If you share our mission, we would like invite you be a part of us, constructing hospital shipto stabilize international maritime safety.
Plus de 60 laboratoires d’analyse équipés de détecteurs de très haute précision sont répartis sur l’ensemble de notre planète et contrôlent quotidiennement la radioactivité de l’air. Leur mission : rechercher les très faibles quantités de produits radioactifs qui pourraient indiquer qu’un essai nucléaire a été effectué en violation du Traité d’Interdiction Complète des Essais Nucléaires (TICEN).
Les résultats de ces analyses permettraient de suivre, jour après jour, et depuis le 12 mars 2011, l’avancée des masses d’air contaminé par les rejets radioactifs de la centrale nucléaire de FUKUSHIMA DAIICHII. C’est impossible car les données sont confisquées par les Etats. Les résultats sont transmis à des organismes officiels qu’ils sélectionnent et qui sont tenus de ne rien divulguer. Le réseau international de mesure est financé par de l’argent public.
Les populations ont droit à cette information. Tous les chiffres doivent être publiés et non pas quelques chiffres soigneusement choisis par les autorités.
In the whole Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Romania, Spain, USA (specially California) etc., there are many nuclear energy power plants under the huge risks of earthquakes and/or tsunamis.
The accident of Fukushima [Mar.11,2011], Japan, as well as the former accident of Kashiwazaki (Niigata) [July 16,2007], Japan, caused by earthquakes shows the total incompatibility of nuclear energy plant in the area where the earthquake and/or tsunami are reachable.
Thus, we shall ban the operation of nuclear power plant in such area immediately, as the first step of total prohibition of nuclear power plants in this planet.
An earthquake of magnitude 9.0 hit Japan on March 11th.
The confirmed death toll from a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and devastating tsunami on March 11 that hit northeastern and eastern Japan has jumped to 5,321 and 9,329 others people remained missing as of 2 p.m. (0500 GMT) on Thursday, the government announced.
I know that not everyone has enough extra funds to make a significant donation on their own, but if we all take our small amounts and put them together, then perhaps we have a chance to make a real difference. We have to start thinking about the entire world as a whole and people as humans all living together in it in stead of separating feelings, funds and assistance by geographical location. HELP NOW!!!
A massive 8.9/9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean nearby Northeastern Japan at around 2:46pm on March 11 (JST) causing damage with blackouts, fire and tsunami.
The earthquake and tsunami that has struck Japan has left a trial of devastation and sparked fears of a nuclear disaster.

The reason why there should be " Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Accel 3" it will be PS2 is that the two games of the series narutimate (accel 1 and 2) had been made for ps2, then the third game of the series also had to be for ps2. Much people wait for this game for ps2.
EchoGreen has been around for years with an intention to Do Something. We are a growing group of writers, musicians, singer songwriters, artists, media producers and web consultants. It's been a long time coming, the need is here.
Recently, as oil leaks into our oceans and we have images of tar rain pouring onto our bodies, homes, vehicles, animals and gardens, we cry for the dolphins, as it rains and we decide, the time is now.
EchoGreen will be sponsoring several petitions with the voice of those who are at one with the earth and its ways in the old way mixed with the new way.
The old way being, feeling the vibration of the earth and the beings, in other words, feeling their life, their voices and their feelings reverberate through our beings, while hearing the voice of the earth as if it is speaking our language and an animate object. Earth is an animate object, we often, have just lost our ability to hear what it has to say. She/it/he is talking to many of us at once. And we have something to say via our translations.
Whereas the new way is through media, through business, through the grid and the economy of the West, speaking out to the people who can make the difference because they have the economy and consumption at their fingertips.
We are the people, we are the change, we are the ones we have been waiting for and we are here. Let's take it for the big one, let's do what we can. Let's petition to businesses, to governments, to presidents, to the people. Let's make our voices loud and clear and let's take a stand.
We live, we eat, we release our waste, we breath, we love, we think, we feel, we dance, we laugh and we play, just as we all do or want to do.
It's time to do this without hurting the earth and others. What can we do? Whatever it is, you know inside you. Start by signing and making petitions and sending them to companies, making them popular. Campaigns are big and our voice can be heard. Do it from the heart and with integrity. Do it with true knowledge about what is best. For instance, how can we be mobile yet not consume oil? How can we receive food yet not have it inefficiently trucked across America? How can we save the seeds and not spread disease? How can we be healthy happy and harmonious?
We can do it. Let's do it, one at a time, before we can no longer breath, eat or stand.

Dear Policy Makers of Japan,
You are grappling with a steep debt-GDP ratio (which, if not for the public savings, would have taken the country down by now), global competitiveness and above all a drooping morale and a lack of ambition amongst your young.
I would kindly like to bring to your attention one single greatest factor which you can directly control:
Alcohol consumption is rampant in this country and drinking culture has seeped deep in the society. Office workers' most common routine is to have a drink or two before returning home. School goers (in addition to sneak binges) are eagerly waiting for the legal age of hatachi (20) before they can jump on the bandwagon too!
Ladies are not lagging behind either and why should they, after all this is the age of no discrimination...
In my stay of 4 years, I have met only three people who say they don't drink; one of them due to medical reasons.
*Statistics in nationmaster shows Japan per capita spirits consumption to be the highest in the whole world!
And this is one country where liquor is most easily available. Lines of izakayas (local pubs) in every market, vending machines selling beer, wine shops, and most important, the 24hour convenient stores - all of which seem to be selling alcohol.
Oh, and never in all these years have I seen any of them asking for ID!
You will say that spirits industries are one of the oldest, strongest and driving the economy too. It is a argument that with a revenue of ~USD14 Billion, Asahi Breweries donated ~USD 2.5 million to charity last spring and intends to distribute another amount this year to prefectures (government) according to "sales volumes".
However, this is just the perfect incentive given to the government to not to intervene with growth and marketing plans.
In addition to the reasons of looking at a future with forward thinking and decent society, you have to control the sale and advertising of alcohol because:
1) A parent acts as a role model for her children. But when parents return home in a drunk state, how will the children look up to them?
2) The negative impact of regular drinking on health is well known. Research has also shown that drinking kills brain cells. Think of how much brain-power you are loosing as a nation.
A few generations down, children will have much lesser cognitive abilities (might even get significantly dumb)! Think who will drive new innovations, write haiku and shodou, and run the government then?
3) In spite of a strong alcohol lobby, other nations have maintained resistance to make it so widely and easily available. By buckling in to the pressure from lobbies of such industries you are losing a competitive edge globally.
4) Spirits are proven to have a negative sexual effects, which impacts the birth rate too. So promoting alcohol is counterproductive to your policies to promote the birth rate.
For the people who want to quit, it is next to impossible to do so in Japan. You travel in the subways or watch TV - one in five (if not more, at least 10%) of the commercials are for alcoholic beverages (Asahi, Kirin, Sapporo, Suntory etc.). Even in prime-time, when many children are watching!
You go to office parties and will immediately feel out of place if you refuse a drink.
You almost become a social outcast if not drinking!
The government should bring about similar restrictions on alcohol industry as has been brought upon tobacco industry.
Trust me, those who want to drink will find a way to their jokki and nama. But these measures will bring a gradual impact on the generations to come and you will slowly move towards a lesser drinking and more healthier society.
Else, it will be interesting to see the strength of the economy propping itself on the pillars of beer cans and wine bottles.
