In certain circumstances where the judges are in disagreement over the death penalty, should it be down to a person or persons that have been affected by the prisoner, IE: there young daughter was raped and murdered by the prisoner. may be it could be closure for them if they say rot in prison or hang. it is quite an emotional subject, are we in the right, weather if some should be executed, or rot in prison. can some of these judges sleep at night thinking that they might have just got it wrong.

Once again another mass shooting, when will the yanks ever wake up and smell the coffee? they need to tighten up there ridiculously slack gun laws, just because it violates there constitution it ok to carry on as it is?,,,,sorry its time to amend that constitution, in the UK there are restriction on how much ammo and guns you are allowed to own, its quite simple, if the NRA does not like it TOUGH! get a grip this slaughter can't carry on.

To go back to Fukashima, is going toe difficult, the lack of infrastructure i.e. busses, hospitals, shops doctors, etc, why would you go back? but the government is not going to give loads of money to someone when no one lives there, I suppose its a chicken and egg situation.

Peace out, you said "Just how stupid would one have to be to kill a person and hide the body in some bushes on their property? That would be so stupid it raises some serious questions and doubts." can i draw you attention to Mr Fred west, I think he buried 6-7 girls in his garden, including his own daughter!.
One last thing, how can you undertake an autopsy on a skeletal remains, is this suggesting she is only partially decomposed? or is it a pile of bones? if its the latter, how can you undertake an autopsy on just bones?

The easiest way is to charge people for stupid or non emergency call outs, say 40,000 yen thats £220 ish? that will cut down on these silly type of calls, also in the UK we have a non emergency call line, it is maned by ex nurses, or medically trained people, this way they can roughly asses weather its a non or an emergency situation, and give out advice over the telephone this is open 14/7 even when you can't call in to see your local doctor. could this be a good solution to this problem?

In the UK we have train spotters, some say that they are a bunch of sad people who need to get a life, but I am sure they would disagree, does this mean that Japan has train spotters? (mitsukeru densha) I am sure that £233 for a guided tour of various part of the factories and testing facilities is a small price to pay, and I am sure they will be queing around the block for a ticket.

As an entrepanur I quite often look for new business opportunities, I have thought about opening a Love hotel, Maid o san cafes, and now this one in the UK, I just can't see how the British public would take to any of these, let alown letting the local council to allow me to operate such establishments. Don't Japanese woman feel that they are put down, degraded and suppressed by this portrayal of them?

Offering up to 100,000 yen ($800) per household for moving back. notice UP TO so it will be less then that, any way I would say, even at the high amount its still pretty low, almost insulting really!
