Nintendo's pioneering 3-D hand-held debuts
Japan Times - Feb 27, 2011

Nintendo's latest game machine, offering glasses-free 3-D images, went on sale Saturday ahead of a global rollout, and analysts say it promises to be the world's first 3-D mass-market product. "I'm so excited," said 9-year-old Natsumi Miyasaka, clutching her brand new blue 3DS portable that her father bought for her. Lines formed outside Tokyo electronics stores, although they were not as long as some previous gadget launches, as Nintendo offered purchase reservations in advance. (Japan Times)

Kremlin sees Japan island talks 'losing meaning'
AFP - Feb 12, 2011

top Kremlin official on Saturday slammed Japan's recent statements on the disputed Kuril islands, telling the Japanese foreign minister that talks on the island chain were "losing meaning." The Russian president's chief of staff, Sergei Naryshkin harshly upbraided Japan's top diplomat, Seiji Maehara, over Tokyo's outraged reaction to a visit by President Dmitry Medvedev to the islands in November last year. Tokyo's position had "led to a situation where continuing a discussion of the territorial problem is losing meaning," Naryshkin was quoted as saying by the RIA Novosti news agency, citing a Kremlin statement.

Japan adopts the green way of the eco-warrior
Daily Mail - Nov 19, 2010

Japan leads the world in technological know-how. And when Japan turns its attention to anything it seems to do it better than anyone else. Take 3D television, digital cameras, cars - take anything, in fact. So when it starts looking into the consequences of environmental change, you might expect the results to be impressive. All the major Japanese companies have made serious commitments to the cause - from Toyota's hybrid Prius, the celebrity's favourite, to Mitsubishi's i-MiEV, currently driven by Birmingham's police force. But few have taken up the baton with such earnest intent as Japan's leading consumer electronics company Panasonic, which has declared its intention to be the number one 'green innovation' company in the electronics industry-by its centenary in 2018.

Obama to skip Nagasaki, Hiroshima
Yomiuri - Oct 30, 2010

U.S. President Barack Obama will not visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki while he is in Japan next month to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit meeting, the White House said Thursday. Ben Rhodes, U.S. deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, said a tight schedule means Obama will not be able to visit the two cities on which the United States dropped atomic bombs in 1945. Obama will visit Japan from Nov. 12 to 14, and hold talks with Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Nov. 13 on issues including the relocation of the U.S. Marine Corps' Futenma Air Station in Okinawa Prefecture and North Korea's nuclear development.

Senkaku video to stay under wraps
Japan Times - Oct 9, 2010

The Democratic Party of Japan-led government will for the time being not release video footage of last month's collisions involving a Chinese trawler and Japan Coast Guard patrol boats in the East China Sea, sources said Friday. The stance reflects concerns that its release would further damage Japan-China relations, which soured after the arrest and detention of the trawler skipper, the sources said. Bilateral tensions appear to be slowly easing, as seen by the recent departure of two Chinese fisheries patrol boats near the Senkaku Islands, which Japan controls but China claims. (Japan Times)
