    I've worked in mid-sized to world-leading Aussie, British and American companies, and I can honestly say the best managers I have had have been women, in terms of professionalism, leadership and people-management. I hope Japan can catch up in the near-future, but it seems - ironically - Japanese women and their lack of confidence is holding them back.

    American-made Jeeps are absolute garbage - anything the Chinese do with them will be an improvement. Give me a Toyota 4WD any day.

    What a farce these so-called "religions" are showing themselves to be. And what grubs their respective leaders are revealing themselves as with their aggressive rhetoric. Give me the calmness and respect for their fellow man of an atheist any day!

    Have two sons, and always loved this custom.

    Good on you and your boys, Kurobune! As the proud father of a girl I can even even understand and love Koi-nobori and its beauty! Happy Children's Day!

    Would like to know why it is that so many cops do these ridiculous things here in Japan.

    An extremely macho, hierarchical culture that seems to recruit those with a lot of pent-up aggression, among other issues. Not to mention has scant respect for women or minorities - including foreigners. Im sure the culture of drinking after-hours has something to do with it too. Other police forces around the world have gone through these issues and addressed them ( NSW Royal Commission is a good example) - it is now time for Japan to.

    I just hope the poor girl somehow recovers from this ordeal - and that the sexual predator loses his job and pension.

    @ RomeoR - you almost make it sound as though a lost Japanese life would be more tragic than the few hundred or so lost souls. I'm sure it was just an oversight.

    Human tragedy knows no borders - every loss is equally devastating, every life is equally precious.

    Rest in Peace. Heres hoping they manage to find some survivors, but I imagine the water is very cold out there. Awful tragedy.

    @ Strangerland - my bad - I think you were suggesting a jaywalking pedestrian is no defence with regards to a driver hitting one here? Probably true, sorry!

    @ Strangerland - are you seriously suggesting jaywalking - particularly at 4am - does not occur here? Have you ever been to Japan?! Very common, especially so further out from the city. Condolences to the dead mans family. I wonder if the taxi-driver is going to use the old "I didn't notice anything" excuse?

    Absolute tragedy, Rest in Peace poor Mum and child. Agree totally with Bogi - I see so many people here running reds it scares the heck out of me. Red-light cameras EVERYWHERE - and a 30,000 yen fine per offence, posted direct to the offender - would almost certainly stop most cars running red. Not that I'm assuming the mother definitely did, however.

    Anti-social, drunken behaviour from a J-cop? Wow - there's a shock!

    @ proxy - Friendly uncles? More like dodgy, drunken uncles that people are creeped out by! Ha ha. As I said, I do sincerely hope they catch this guy - and that none of the cops are soon blown to smithereens...

    Shindo looks like a nasty overweight old grub with bad hair-dye. If there is any negative reaction to this official visit then it is fully deserved.

    Whilst in general I have little regard for Japanese police, these attacks and threats are the work of a coward - or a group of cowards. Let's hope they are nabbed before the next bomb attack.

    Sounds like the work of those sad, unemployed black-van cretins. Good to hear the Pilgrimage Association has condemned this disgusting racism.

    Disgusting old man. Hope they throw the book at him - and that the poor girl is not too traumatised.

    @ FizzBit - give a thick, juicy Tasmanian steak a try- you won't be disappointed. A bit more pricey but soon to have 20% tariff taken off. Good to hear other Aussie produce - including wine and beer - will also see tariff cuts! Likewise, my folks back in Aus will be getting their Toyotas $1500-$2000 cheaper. Win-Win for the consumer. @TrevorPeace - will definitely give a Canadian steak a try if I find it!
