    Child Welfare said they couldn't do anything because she was staying there voluntarily? But she's 17, so not an adult yet to make that decision anyway.

    Child Welfare said they showed up but no one answered? That's it.

    Also why didn't the police check?

    Seoul Incheon airport offers extensive cultural activities and shows, Narita needs to add more to showcase Japan.

    Indeed the rickshaw was invented in Japan. By an Englishman....

    Disputed, but it can be attributed to multiple inventors around the same time who had the same idea.

    Has this already been proven? Are they sure he didnt have some kind of heartattack or something?

    You don't reprogram flight computers when you are having a heart attack.

    This article is missing a ton of things (not withstand it is a bit of old news).

    For Americans with foreign income, the reporting on FATCA is year end of $100,000 USD or over. Notwithsanding Americans already need to file an FBAR for over 10,000 USD (this has been around for years and years).

    Also reading the agreement between Japan and the US (you can see it online), Japan only needs to report any account holder who's value is over $50,000 USD, so if you are under, another thing not to worry about. Also if your Japn account has no "US" links (eg transfers there, or withdrawals) it is hard to identify as a US account holder if you opened your account in the past. New accoutns must be identified, but older ones are harder.

    I wonder if we will be able to buy the English direct download version with a Japanese IP address and credit card. I ??hope it's not: 'We're sorry, this version of Windows is not available in your area'.

    Windows 10 will be a FREE upgrade to existing Windows users (using both legitimate and illegal copies).

    Their *business side is conducted in English, their retail side is still in Japanese. Not withstanding, Rakuten doesn't actually sell anything but rather is a marketplace (online market) for Japanese retailers to sell their items (rakuten provides the venue), no regulation on those retailers being able to speak English.

    Without a doubt that Delta and US airlines in generally do provide not so great service compared to rivals in Asia, no doubt about that!!

    BUT Qatar airlines new fleet compared to delta, address the issue, why is that? Qatar airlines was founded in 1993 vs a legacy airline like Delta, and how does Qatar get those brand new airlines, perhaps through these "subsidies" or whatever you like to call them.

    Contrary to Hollywood and the news, in the United States, traffic accidents is one of the leading causes of death among police officers.

    15 year olds are still children under the law in Japan. Is it be correct to chase children on the road thus provoking an accident? No, the answer is to alert other police in the area and follow the children (at a distance)until they can safely be apprehended......

    Provoking the accident? Wasn't the police's fault. Did you miss the fact that they had already ran a red light and was going down the wrong way of the street? The girl riding the minibike was already provoking an accident** before **the police attempted to stop them. Unless you don't think going through red lights and driving on the wrong way of the street is not provoking an accident?

    While barriers could have prevented this accident, this is another reason why people shouldn't be running on the platforms, many warnings that people often ignore, just like talking on your phone on the platforms. Sure train companies have a responsibility to protect customers, but customers also have a responsibility as well to stay safe, and running on train platforms is not one of them.

    Facts: -Girl didn't have a license -Girl didn't have a helmet -Girls drove through a RED light -Girls drove down the WRONG WAY of a street.

    Who's fault is the accident? The police? WHAT? Man some of you really want to blame the police for every single thing bad that ever happens. My train was late, blame it on the police. Getting old.

    Truth is, NTV will benefit from this anyway from all the hype caused by the media they'd probably see a hike in viewership. Later, she will end up interviewing some new hot baseball player, and she'd be married off by 2018 when she's 25. Typical Japanese news announcer job.

    Before we jump the gun, who knows it could of been material from the woman's own teeth, I mean, she's eating McDonalds, it can't be good for you tobegin with, even though the person has denied that being the case, we don't have all the details yet.

    As with news in the US, there are people willing to jump on the bandwagon for some publicity. Let's wait and see for the investigation.

    In the whole scheme of things (number of people served vs incidents), McDonalds food and it's industry is much safer and more regulated or rather scrutinized, rather than trying to cover-up these incidences like some other companies have done.

    I don't know if they should start selling Mochi with packaging like cigarettes, with big fat warnings on them, though I doubt that will work.

    Note to self: Don't eat mochi by myself.

    Sugawara has admitted he is the man in the photos but denied stealing anything from the woman.

    Looking at the video, I see he's holding what appears to be high heels...
