survey by the Yomiuri Shimbun showed that an overwhelming number of Japanese would still buy domestic rice over foreign brands despite the latter’s comparably cheaper cost with the liberalization of rice imports.

The survey administered on Nov. 12-13 in 250 locations throughout the country revealed that 90% of those who responded said they would prefer Japanese-made rice compared to the 7% who indicated they would buy foreign brand rice.

The Yomiuri survey also showed that 68% were in favor of large-scale domestic farming for purposes of improving agricultural productivity as against 19% who were opposed to it.

Asked on the possibility of increasing government subsidies to farmers, 59% supported the idea while 29% did not favor the idea.

On their impression about domestic farm produce, majority of the responses said it was "very safe" garnering 73% of total votes; followed closely by responses saying it was "tasty" with 72% of the total responses; 64% described it as "fresh”; while 22 % said domestic farm products were "expensive."

On the other hand, asked about farm produce from abroad, 76% described it as having "low safety"; 46% said it was "inexpensive"; and 33% said it was "not fresh".

The survey came in the light of the controversial decision of the government to participate in the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement which seeks to liberalize trade including agriculture.

The recent decision of the Japanese government to participate in the TPP negotiations while proved to be controversial seemed supported by most Japanese as shown in the surveys conducted by the Yomiuri Shimbun and The Asahi Shimbun.

The Chinese, Korens, Japanese and Vietnamese are from the same race. They are brothers and sisters. The Americans hate that.

For whatever reasons, the Americans killed and caused more deaths to the Koreans (Korean war), Vietnamese (Vietname war) and Japanese (Two atom bombs were tried out on the Japanese to see if they worked!). They hold little value on the lives of these people who are of the Chinese origin.

The Chinese, Korens, Japanese and Vietnamese must work out their difference and unite.
