- 5 years on, whats happened since March 11 2011 -
What happened 5 years ago on March 11th?
On the 11th of March, exactly 5 years ago, a magnitude 9.0-earthquake struck offshore and triggered a devastating tsunami that killed more than 18,000 people.
Around 180,000 people remain displaced, while reconstruction work continues, including many reluctant to return to homes near the Fukushima nuclear power plant, which spewed radiation after being hit by tsunami. Much of the disaster-hit Tohoku coast remains empty except for huge mounds of dirt brought in to raise the ground and minimize risks from the future tsunamis before any rebuilding.
What has been done about the disaster that struck Japan that day, and do even you still feel the effects of that disaster?
What things have been covered up?
What still needs to be done?
And what can we still do to help?
Lets talk about that?

- 2016 American Election Reality TV Show -
Whats even the point in a president in America anymore?
The current election seems to have turned into another bad american reality TV show; which America and the Rest of the World are just laughing at.
Even those who seem to take politics seriously are joking and treating this election like they're voting for the next best joke rather than the next president!
What do you think about the American Presidential Election?
Some of the current candidates even have policies that will have an effect in Japan if they are elected.
Or do you also think it's just a big circus?
How does it compare to elections in Japan?
Lets talk about that.
