He’s denied the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese troops in the late 1930s. He has stated that the Korean women who were working as sexual slaves to the Japanese empire were actually happy-go-lucky prostitutes. He’s a misogynist who does not believe in the equality of the sexes, and a homophobe who doesn’t believe children should be taught about homosexuality or that LGBTQ people should receive government support as “they don’t produce children.”
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics were supposed to be a showcase of all that’s good about Japan. But through carelessness, greed, and incompetence, it keeps showing that Japan is run by an ossified elite who lack an understanding of basic human rights, tolerance, and common sense.”
But in another – especially considering the controversy behind the Games and the toll they are taking on Japan and the world – this lackluster ceremony is a huge letdown. What's the point of all the risk, all the testing and quarantining and masks, if this is the best emotion and spectacle we can muster?

The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemns past anti-Semitic jokes as well as reported bullying of disabled individuals, made by Japanese comedian Kentaro Kobayashi, who is the show director of the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.
According to Japanese media reports, Kobayashi utilized the mass murder of six million Jews by the Nazis in a script for his comedy act in 1998. In his act, he made malicious and anti-Semitic jokes including “Let’s play Holocaust.” Kobayashi is reported to have made distasteful jokes about disabled individuals.
“Any person, no matter how creative, does not have the right to mock the victims of the Nazi genocide. The Nazi regime also gassed Germans with disabilities. Any association of this person to the Tokyo Olympics would insult the memory of six million Jews and make a cruel mockery of the Paralympics,” stated SWC Associate Dean and Global Social Action Director, Rabbi Abraham Cooper.
"どのような人間であれ、どんなにクリエイティブな人間であろうと、ナチスによる虐殺の被害者を嘲笑する権利はありません。ナチス政権は、障害を持つドイツ人もガスによって殺害しました。どのような形であれ、この人物が東京五輪に関与することは、600万人のユダヤ人についての記憶に対する侮辱であり、パラリンピックに対して残酷に嘲笑することです。"と、ラビ=エイブラハム・クーパー(SWC Associate Dean and Global Social Action Director)は声明を出しました。

▼ Japanese composer for Tokyo Olympics apologizes for abuse - The Washington Post
Japanese composer (Cornelius) who abused disabled classmates and forced them to perform sex acts remains involved in Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony
🔴Tokyo Olympics organisers insist they are happy for a Keigo Oyamada to continue as a composer for the opening ceremony despite interviews resurfacing where he described abusing mentally ill classmates.
Fuckでいっぱい ← 残当
I'd only believe he really changed if he revealed he spent the last couple decades trying to make things right and using a great deal of his time and money to assist his victims and disabled people in general. ← 一般的にはそうだろうね
wooow,, did not know this about Cornelius, disgusted.
And he wasn't even a kid when he blatantly admitted to these things in interview, he was 25 at the time... I feel like tossing a couple songs off my spotify now I feel like tossing a couple songs off my spotify now ← 記事を見た時、ワイもそうした
City pop (シティ・ポップ, shitī poppu) is a loose category of Japanese pop music that emerged in the late 1970s and peaked in the 1980s. It was originally termed as an offshoot of Japan's Western-influenced "new music", but came to include a wide range of styles associated with the country's leisure class and nascent economic boom, such as AOR, soft rock, R&B, funk, and boogie. It was also identified with new technologies such as the Walkman, cars with built-in cassette decks and FM stereos, and various electronic musical instruments.
The ultimate in orthographic word games is provided by such a rebus as "on top of the mountain there is another mountain," represented by five characrers that form the verb ide, "come out." The point of this visual pun is that the character for "come out" resembles two superimposed "mountain" characters. Graphomania of this order was not only a Japanese malady. In fact, the "two mountains" rebus derives directly from a much more complicated series of conundrums in Chinese poem included in Yu-t ai hsin-yung.
Japan has been among the global leaders in the commercial application of information and communications technologies since the early 1980s, but its readiness to deal with the security aspects of cyberspace is a much more recent phenomenon.
Its first mature cyber-security strategy was issued in 2013, building on several earlier policies that were focused on rhetorical principles of classic information security of a narrow technical kind.
Japan now has a well-developed approach to the governance of cyberspace, but this constitutes a looser set of arrangements than in countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom, particularly in terms of information-sharing by the private sector.
Overall, Japan’s indigenous cyber-intelligence capabilities are embryonic, with the country largely reliant on key international partners, especially the US, for its cyber situational awareness and its development of intelligence capabilities.
Of the 51 telecoms or tech companies in the 2020 Fortune ‘Global 500’, the US had 16 and Japan was in second place with ten (just ahead of China with eight, while the combined total for the countries of Western Europe was also eight).
The country has an established sovereign microchipmanufacturing capability, with the companies Tokyo Ohka Kogyo Co., Ltd. (TOK), JSR Corporation and ShinEtsu Chemical together dominating global production of the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) photoresists used in the manufacture of cutting-edge seven-nanometre chips.
Japan is home to the fourthlargest telecommunications group in the world, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT), which comprises a series of subsidiary branches including NTT Communications (international communications), NTT Domoco (mobile-device communication) and NTT World Engineering Marine Corporation(ground-cable installation and maintenance).
Japan is currently lagging behind many other members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in terms of technological productivity, with an OECD survey suggesting the country needs greater investment in skills and digital competence – ‘particularly for middle-aged and older workers’ – in order to close the gap.33 There is widespread concern about the digital divide between the younger and older generations – a situation illustrated in particularly embarrassing fashion for the government in 2018, when the minister responsible for cyber security was forced to admit he had never used a computer.
Parents need to know that the long-running Pokémon series is based on characters from a popular video game, and is part of a giant licensing juggernaut. The Pokémon are kid-appealing, but the series features lots of fantasy violence, and pits the cute, monster-like characters against each other on behalf of their trainers. There are some positive messages (teamwork, sportsmanship, respecting elders), but it may be too intense for younger children.
Over the years, the energetic, imagination-filled, Japanese-inspired fantasy series has cut across cultural, gender, and age barriers to captivate a global audience of girls, boys, and even adults. But like any product that inspires obsessions, it has received its share of criticism. Folks may also find the franchise's massive commercial appeal disturbing, especially since the show is mainly geared towards kids.
The whole concept of human characters summoning subordinates to battle on their behalf may be troubling to some. This can potentially send iffy messages to children with pets, too. But despite the endless fantasy violence, Pokémon attempts to promote messages about choosing the right path in life and resolving differences peacefully--before the fighting starts.
What are the differences between Pokémon and real-life pets. How do Ash and his friends care for their Pokémon? How do we care for pets differently? Why are the Pokémon loyal to them and fight on their behalf? How about Team Rocket? Can we ever expect animals to fight on our behalf?
