Dear Director,

I hope to visit Japan to attend a conference - I would be there from 29th July 2015 to 2nd August 2015.
Although I reside permanently in Ireland I am an Australian citizen and hold a current Australian passport.
I have checked your web site re Visas and see that an Australian Passport holder does not require a passport for up to 90 days. I am writing just to be sure that this is currently the case.

Thank you very much.

EARTHQUAKE 12 07 2014.

I was sorry to read the news on new earthquake activities recorded in Japan on Saturday 12th July, 2014. Although, there was a warning given on Tsunami, but luckily there was no Tsunami at the time.

Earthquake in March, 2011 had created devastating effect on Japan. It was the largest one Japan had with a 9.0 magnitude. The recent one on Saturday was recorded by JMA to be 6.8 magnitude, but the US Geological Survey calculated it to be of 6.5 magnitude.

The pictured published had showed some destruction in Japan, but the media covered no real calamities.

The nuclear plants in Japan had been put offline for some years since 2011 earthquake and tsunami. However, recently the Watchdogs monitoring feel satisfied about opening two nuclear reactors. Some good news for Japan.

I hope that progress and safety installation will continue to protect industries in Japan and rest of the world with these natural disasters which are common today.

Thank you.

Dolphin Slaughter
Hello. I am shocked at recently witnessing the barbaric killing of beautiful, friendly, intelligent dolphins in Japan. I consider it a great shame on your nation that this cruelty has been allowed to persist and ask you to use your influence to halt these murderous acts that have been since witnessed on news channels all over the world.

Taiji Dolphin & Whale babaric Slaughter
I am quite shocked at this barbaric act of slaughtering such a beautiful and intelligent animal. I certainly won't be supporting any industry that would stem from this and will continue to voice my concerns through public media. Japan is a great majestic country ... this is not the type of PR you want. Such acts hold no place in this day in age.

Taiji Dolphin & Whale babaric Slaughter
Hi there
I wish to express my disgust at the slaughter of the dolphins in Taiji, this is a barbaric exercise, my heart bleeds for those beautiful intelligent mammels that are mans best friend and a beauty to behold. Please place a ban on this awful slaughter, Dolphins are a very special fish that enhance our world and should be treated with respect and love. The Japanise people are displaying to the world that they are barbaric and heartless people, not caring for our environment or the species that share our planet.

Taiji Dolphin & Whale babaric Slaughter
I wish to voice my concerns about the annual dolphin slaughter taking place now in Taiji. This is a terrible act upon these intelligent creatures and must stop. The scenes that take place there everyday are completely sickening and disgusting to watch. These so called fishermen terrorise these animals with sound into Taiji cove and brutally murder families of dolphin for food and human entertainment in sea parks. The screams and thrashing from these dolphin can be heard amongst the laughter and joking from these killers. Is this what you want the world to see from Japan? Is this acceptable?
By allowing this to continue you country has no compassion and no honour in my eyes. I will never visit your country and will boycott all products from your country as long as this slaughter continues.
The entire world helped your country in your time of need after the Tsunami.
Shame on you and your country!
Please stop this cruel slaughter.
