Business isn't simple; foreign policy isn't either. If Trump wants to be taken seriously by the general electorate, he should demonstrate the nuanced understanding of foreign policy exemplified by candidates ranging from Jeb Bush to Hillary Clinton.
Our next course would be a street food favorite: takoyaki or grilled octopus balls! Pouring the egg batter into the special grilled plate, I was wondering how we were going to make the perfectly shaped crisp balls of takoyaki that we'd come to love eating off the street.
It's time to fully compensate the victims of Agent Orange and fund a total cleanup of the areas in Vietnam that remain contaminated by the toxic chemical. We must hold our leaders accountable for their crimes in Japan and Vietnam, and ensure that such atrocities never happen again.
When power is available, it can be expensive: In many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, consumers pay as much as 20-50 cents per kilowatt-hour against a global average close to 10 cents.
As the number of foreign tourists is increasing these days, countryside area is also attracting tourists' attention. Every different local dish gets f...
If there was one virtue that China projected, it was an economy that could handle like a BMW, and go from 0 to 7.5 percent growth in 3 months.
Gift giving is a deep-rooted social obligation. People agonize over choosing something that reflects the value of the occasion, the recipient, and the giver. Gourmet chocolates, cakes and cookies play a huge part in this cultural give-and-take.
Japan's future role in global security is the most significant question in the minds of many in East Asia on the seventieth anniversary of the end of the Pacific War.
HONG KONG -- Does the average app designer in Silicon Valley understand the cultural context of a 13-year-old Cambodian girl and the needs and wants of a billion others half a world away? This is a divergence that obscures a truth that technological cheerleaders rarely admit -- that proper investment in technology (in toilets rather than telecoms, for instance) has been deemed less important than searching for the massive valuation of a company whose social utility is marginal at best.
Currencies are melting down all over. For a long time, Morgan Stanley (MS) has kept a list of emerging market currencies that were running ...
At a time when income inequality is running rampant in the U.S., workers don't need even more "free" trade agreements that will further strip this nation's economy of middle-income jobs.
Who exactly was Captain Zacharias, beyond being fluent in Japanese and giving himself the title of official spokesman of the U.S. Government? I went to the state of Pennsylvania to visit his son and find some answers.
On the important 70th anniversary of the war's end, China is on heightened alert to Japan's official statements. It will be watching to see if Abe continues to free himself from the constitutional constraints that bar him from using military force proactively on a global scale. Unlike when the Cold War ended and Koizumi took over, Abe openly aspires to make Japan a great Asian power.
As horrifying as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were, the quantum leap forward in destructive power afforded by the hydrogen bomb made our situation far more perilous. We've been fortunate that virtually unthinkable destruction has not ensued since the nuclear arms race of the 1950s.
To re-enter this new neighborhood as a "normal power" in the future, Japan must first come to terms with its past. Despite the manifestly evident peacefulness of Japanese society for the last 70 years, the wounds of war remain fresh because they are part of the founding identity of modern Asia's nation-states.
I guess no matter how many times I went to Hiroshima, I always expected something different to happen, when in fact nothing happened. There were 200,000 souls out there that no matter how much concrete and paving had been laid down could not have been buried deep enough.
