Better ways to spend ¥2 billion!

Toon, Ehime

Regarding the Sept. 6 front-page article “Government seen sealing Senkaku deal at ¥2.05 billion“: All that for a few small, more-or-less useless islands?

Doesn’t the government have any better ideas on how to spend such an amount?

Two billion yen would definitely improve the living conditions for those people in northern Japan still affected by the 3/11 earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disasters.
