      +nowgaku Yes. Japan was the first developed country in Asia. US, Euripe, China and Japan used to be allies in 70-80s last century. They all helped China at that time.

    YOKOHAMA ISNT THE SECOND LARGEST CITY, PS Yokohama isn’t a city but just a ward in the prefecture of KANAGAWA, they often wanted to be recognized as Tokyo but YOKOHAMA WARD ITS JUST a few building in the ocean side surrounded by factories

    Tokyo is amazing. It has grown a lot. I just came back from there in July. I left Japan last in 2006 and in 11.5 years it changed a lot. It may be big but its still very clean. I love it. The best thing about Tokyo and Japan in general, is that you see new and old ways exhisting side by side in harmony. It's definitely lightyears ahead of any city on the planet and the new Sky Tree is a dominating presence in the skyline. I first moved to Japan in 1996. I was in the Air
    Force. It has bern my second home since then.

    Got back to SF / Bay Area from 2 weeks in Japan / Tokyo. In contrast - this pace is a complete dump on so many levels, hard to even compare to Tokyo. Maybe NYC as of the last 2-3 years can be referenced a bit, but still have 30 years of development to go to catch up on so many levels, but then the culture probably - cannot help it

    But Japan is an ancient Korean descendant. It was ancient Korea that taught them culture and language. And the emperor they worship as a god is an ancient Korean. That's why their language order is the same as Korea. It's different from China. Currently, Japanese are half-blooded in ancient China and Korea. But they raped and invaded their ancient parents. Don't forget

      According to the main editorial by the Chief Editor of Choson Ilbo, the biggest newspaper in South Korea, on Mar 6, 2012, Feb. 2, 2010 and Feb. 13, 2003, "Koreans lie as if they breathe” and “Koreans are the world’s biggest liar of all." Korea has the highest fraud rate and is the only country whose fraud rate exceeds that of robbery in OECD. Also, all of perjury, calumny and fraud rates in S Korea are some 160-670 times higher than those of Japan.
      Lies are a part of your history, tradition and culture.
      That is what your mother taught you in your country.
      You are born as a liar; taught to be a liar; live as a liar; die as a liar; and your offspring will be another liar.
      What a miserable nation.
      What a miserable life.
      But that is your life.

      Korean Culture:
      Before the Japanese annexation, everything in Korea were second class deteriorated copies of Chinese cultures.
      Then after the WWII, everything including industry, pop cultures are deteriorated copies of Japanese things.
      Even your plastic faces are using measurements of Japanese models, using techniques learned from Takatsu Clinic. Look at your faces 20 years ago in your books. They are your true faces.

      Korean comfort women:
      All the Korean comfort women were highly paid prostitutes recruited by Korean dealers. There is NO primary source evidence whatsoever to indicate that there was coercion except for the dodgy statements made by the comfort women who only appears in places where no questions are allowed.
      The reason for no questions is that in the past they made stupid mistakes that exposed their lies like they were kidnapped by Jeep (Jeep was used by US during Korean War and Japan does not have a single Jeep); the soldier opened his fastener (Japanese was using buttons); and some even mentioned base where only American bases were located during the Korean War.
      Instead, there are many evidences to show that they were nothing but prostitutes such as recruitment ads, comfort women’s bank account recordings, diaries, police records of arresting bad Korean dealers who kidnapped girls, newspapers articles on arresting bad Korean dealers, US official report on a station in Burma, etc.
      The biggest investigation conducted by a Korean professor at Seoul Uni, Prof. An, for which both Korean and Japanese government cooperated and in which he interviewed all the comfort women who claimed they were coerced, concluded that they are either making mistake or deliberately lying and that there is NO primary source evidence that indicate there was coercion in Korea or Japan. He also said that the objective of the Korean political group behind all this move is not the truth or justice, but it is to bash Japan. This is an investigation conducted by Koreans using Korean money.
      Also, subsequently, US government conducted a huge investigation in its official archive during and after the war upon request from South Korean and China. But there found NO evidence whatsoever, and all they found were evidences to indicate that they were professional prostitutes.
      So there is absolutely no nothing in Korea, Japan or US.
      If you try to find an evidence, you will realize that there are many Korean who say there are plenty of evidences. But when you ask them to show or point to one, nobody can. Not only that, nobody knows what it is, where it is, or even who saw it.
      This is what Koreans talk about themselves: according to the main editorial by the Chief Editor of Choson Ilbo, the biggest newspaper in South Korea, on Mar 6, 2012, Feb. 2, 2010 and Feb. 13, 2003, "Koreans lie as if they breathe” and “Koreans are the world’s biggest liar of all." Korea has the highest fraud rate and is the only country whose fraud rate exceeds that of robbery in OECD. Also, all of perjury, calumny and fraud rates in S Korea are some 160-670 times higher than those of Japan.
