    On the way back home from shopping at Tokyo Shin-Okubo, an angry mob of rightists were demonstrating holding the rising sun flag high up in the air. The large demonstration of rightists who are upset about the territorial dispute regarding Dokdo and the comfort women issue, consisted of more than 100 people, many of who waved the militaristic rising-sun flag. Things got nastier after the march ended, when the marchers broke off into smaller groups and confronted the shopkeepers with even more hostile remarks, such as 'Kill Korea,' 'Fuck Korea.' However, these acts are unscrupulous of the Japanese because I couldn't find any sign of repentance nor self-reflection. Their violent and agressive acts do nothing but degrade Japan's image. As long as Japan has no statute against hate crimes, this kind of ethnic and racial discrimination will remain out of control. Half a century has passed since the end of the last world war, but the issue of territorial disputes is being used as a new pretext to abet what are long-term trends.

    Really? You really want to compare a nonviolent protest by a small (unconfirmed) number of protestors with what has been going on in Korea and China over the past few weeks? Really? Where were the burning flags? The vandalized shops and cars? People (including children) being beaten?

    Maybe you don't want to go there.

    That's the kind of thing that has been going on in China and Korea over the past few weeks.

    Japan has its right wing reactionary nationalists, too.

    Making the stupidity of 100 people into the definition of the Japanese zeitgeist is a bit of a stretch, don't you think?

    Japan overlooking secret economic weapon: women
    Mon, Nov 26, 2012 - In next month’s general election, politicians — nearly all of them men — will make promises on what they will do to fix Japan’s economic morass. Very few of them will even mention women.

    I was stationed in Korea 88-89. Wanna' guess what the usual reaction from the locals was when I told them I was married to a Japanese?

    China, Japan and Korea have been hating each other for thousands of years.

    Reasonable, educated people in each of those countries are more than capable of keeping all this stuff in perspective. I know lots of people in/from all three countries who are embarrassed at how their compatriots sometimes behave over these things.

    That's what they say to your face. Can you speak any of those languages?

    Listening in on the Japanese when they think you don't understand can be a real eye opener.
