    downtown is usually South and uptown usually North....so it depends on where you start.

    That makes no sense to me at all.

    The way in wich this story was buried by the major Japanese media outlets yesterday is truly frightening. Either this is a prime example of self-censorship or the government is directly involved.

    This is not a bad result for Japan. Even the major football powers in the world have hiccups just after the club season finishes. Players are in vacation mode and often not fit. Many of them are also wrapped up in contract negotiations. Albania beat France yesterday and Wales beat Belgium the day before.

    Japanese showing remorse towards Korea for wrongdoings? Good luck with that.

    the lucky girl who got to have the first bite, it was “oishii” (delicious)!

    Sounds like she has the talent to star on about a thousand different J-tv programs.

    @Bogi: you also see European people, before a judo match, bowing. Nothing weird...

    Not a good comparison. Contestants have to bow before and after matches in judo. It's part of the rules.

    The important thing is being respectful to other people customs, even though you don't share them.

    I agree. But something that I find very strange is the habit that Japanese soccer players have developed of hugging each other as if they were Southern Europeans or South Americans. I know it's not a bad thing, but it just seems really, really weird. I think it's good to be accepting of other customs when in a situation like the photo above, but J footballers hugging the hell out of other J footballers just seems so fake.

    All she had to do was say loudly "No soap, no sex" - no problem

    No. They're married, so I assume that's no longer a bargaining chip.

    Do you actually believe that ANYBODY could become a Prince's bodyguard?

    I would be seriously concerned if I were to see you trying to have a go at my Sensei; he's only about 5'1" and looks just like a frail, old English trump (no joke).

    I'm just saying, there are plenty of really big, scary looking martial arts experts. Give me one of those.

    If I were him, I'd be getting myself a bigger bodyguard than that little guy in the left!

    The old rich pensioners should be means tested before receiving the pension, if they are creaming it off the stock market, have a second home down in Izu, travel to Hawaii and drive a benz then do they really need the pension from the govt ?

    If people haven't saved for their old age, that is their look out, why should my working family support people who have been irresponsible? If I had been financially irresponsible I would not expect a single yen from the government.

    Do you understand how the pension system in Japan works? These people have all paid into the system. Don't you agree that they are entitled to at least what they contributed?? Perhaps you also propose that banks offer minus interest for people with mid-high incomes! If not, I do not understand your point at all.

    Never take your eyes off your children in unfamiliar territory. Very few Japanese children have experience with swimming in the sea. Some may call this an accident, but I call it negligence.

    Maybe someone realised she can't actually sing.

    Going by the lineup, I don't think so.

    Even CNN reports celebrity scandals ahead of elections and war.

    Even CNN? I agree with the point you're trying to make, but CNN is far from a good example.

    The fact that the country's leaders and experts all find this surprising is what disturbs me the most.

    Many of the comments here suggesting that she was forced into this marriage/lifestyle are somewhat confusing. The expectations and sacrifices that one makes when marrying into the Japanese Imperial family are both clear and well-known. It is natural that that the Prince would be interested in a classy woman like her, but the decision to accept the proposal was made by Masako herself.

    They ruined a good woman.

    Who did? I have immense sympathy for her given the heartache she has suffered, but let's remember she was a 30 year-old adult when she made her decision.

    Highly likely she would have been killed. But, impossible to prove. Unfortunately, he'll get off lightly.

    Dad, you've been given a second chance which you probably don't deserve. Don't EVER let her out of your sight again.

    Why did the cops take the time to weigh this dropped load?

    Can't beleive the police actually weighed it all!

    Large amounts of non-burnable waste are weighed in Japan. Very standard.

    Considering Hanshin just won the series, the story seems awfully played down, JT.
