The most remarkable characteristics of the year 2010 in Japan was the change in the way of thinking about China. The ratio of Japanese people who feel friendly about China went down from 70% to 20%, according to the leading newspaper's opinion poll. People of integrity have already known about the cruelty of China, but now, ordinary Japanese people are afraid of the recent huge armament of China. As the news originating from China increased, people began to recognize the real China. As for me, I know the spiritual nature of Chinese people. I visited Vancouver about 20 years ago for the first time. Since then, I've been there every 2-3 years. I directly feel the worsening of the security and the atmosphere in Richmond, just to the south of the Vancouver International Airport, where lots of Chinese people settled. Canadian people who had originally lived there couldn't stand it. I heard some of those had escaped from Richmond. That's also the case in Ikebukuro in Tokyo. Chinese people never follow the local rules and never join in the neighborhood community. They don't care about others. The other day, a Chinese fishing boat, which was considered to belong to the military, invaded Japan and hit a patrol boat of the Japan Coast Guard on purpose. Besides that, stupid high officials hid the videotape recording of the violence of the Chinese boat from Japanese citizens. Lots of politicians are thought to be brainwashed by China. A democracy campaigner from China who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace is still in prison. Chinese common sense is by far different from ours. Most Japanese people know the real China. The current administration, I think, is stupid, but the people are never idiotic. I hope the government will be disbanded soon.
For my family, every daughter went up to their next step. All the members kept fit. My parents and Mocha are the same. Nothing bad happened to my family and it should be celebrated. I hope that the coming new year will be a brilliant year for all people on the globe.
