    smithinjapan at May. 22, 2016 - 05:00PM JST "Of the rescued victims, some who were forced into prostitution and slavery..." Old habits die hard for some. Japan has one of the worst records in the world -- and definitely in the developed world -- for allowing slavery. The government doesn't even recognise the existence of forced labor within its trainee programs, where it welcomes people in, then abuses them and penalises them THOUSANDS of dollars (after charging them thousands to come in) if they try to leave. It also lacks protection and shelters for victims. This arrest of a whopping 54 is a big step up from last year, but given that there are likely thousands upon thousands going unreported, and the police and government doing very little about the organised crime that thrives of such trafficking, this is no reason for Suga and Co. to pat each other on the back. Read some of the stats: http://www.humantrafficking.org/countries/japan http://www.globalministries.org/humantraffickingandthesex_trade http://www.state.gov/j/tip/rls/tiprpt/countries/2014/226748.htm These are just a few links that point out the obvious: Japan needs to seriously address this issue. No more lip-service.

    Let's try to look at the postive side!! 54 people have been saved!

    It depends on the crime.

    Was it a hit and run? Was it a messy affair? Was it rape?

    If it were the later two then I hope this guy gets DEATH.

    There will be NO apology.

    If Japan had nuclear bombs in WWII they would have done the same.

    Japan doesn't need nor deserve an apology for WWII. They should apologise to their own people for causing the WAR in the first place.

    I got it, maybe the Emperor of Japan should apologize every year.

    Some male and female interviewees seemed to think that this was a much more forgivable kind of cheating, with some even claiming that they wouldn’t consider it cheating at all, since it is merely a “service” provided for financial compensation.

    There you have it ladies and gents.... sex in Japan is seen as a service with many Japanese, rather than what it really is. No wonder so many horny house wives are flirting with me daily at school.

    Okay. Enough is enough, who here with me wants to stage a protest against TEPCO's HQ here in Tokyo? I think we have the right as tax payers, paying for TEPCO's screw up.

    Why are the executives still living the high life with huge salaries when they are requesting WE THE PEOPLE pay for their mistakes? This is just plain and simple stealing and we are letting it happen if they build this SCI-FI ice wall.

    Anyone?

    I think this has something to do with the sick sexualization of little kids in this country. As a user pointed out previously on an another article, they actually have a magazine that features underaged children in panties....available for everyone's convience at 7/11, Lawson, Daily Yamazaki etc.

    They (the government) needs to get to the root of the problem and ban any sexually suggestive content directed at children.... Sadly Japan has a huge crowd of fans... Most likely even in the government that enjoys good old underaged softcore.

    As for this professor, he should be banned from being in the education field for the rest of his working life, be forced to register as a sexual offender, as well as do time (maybe 2 years with a rehabilitation program).

    O’Neill will work alongside six Japanese colleagues, including five men and one woman.

    Aichi Prefecture in central Japan had been seeking six full-time ninja—the covert martial arts masters and agents of sabotage who prowled the shadows in feudal times—and in a job posting last month said candidates of any nationality were welcome. Of the 235 applicants eager to don the black costume of the deadly denizens of the night, an astonishing 85% were foreigners, and 29-year-old Chris O’Neill impressed so much during auditions that officials created an extra spot just for him.

    So still they hired all Japanese and made an extra position for a gaijin... I know they don't have to hire gaijin but some of us are actually born here.....yet still get called gaijin.

    I'm sorry but this festival plus the child porn in this country makes my blood boil. I've seen this festival and watched how preverted it is for parents to be buying their little children penis lollies to suck on... It's freaking sexual as all hell and rather sick.

    I think this should be a 18 only event.

    @Clare Nope. They ask the same for even a working holiday visa. You make up your plans, file some holiday travel info then BINGO you get visa BEFORE you enter. No way to back it up.

    Sounds like something North Korea and China does.

    This type of rule has no place in a modern and free country.

    Amen Sensei258. Could not have been anymore correct, oh and she is a woman too... So in Japanese eyes they would be the 2 lowest things in the world... Gaijin and Woman.

    Love it how China gets all up in Japan's face about causing threats to peace and security in Asia, while their spoiled 3rd cousin Kim Jong Un plays with make-believe nukes.

    On the eve of the fifth anniversary of the disaster, Abe promised to rush decontamination work in irradiated areas near the plant to allow more residents to safely return home.

    Key word being "RUSH". Abe has promised to rush decontamination work.... In other words do a crap cheapskate job of it, probably muddling it up even more. TEPCO has been doing rush jobs for 5 years and look how much good as been done? PFFFFFT.

    Wakayama MamaFEB. 15, 2016 - 07:32AM JST Strange that no Israelis were injured. With Israel's history of lying and making up excuses, I wonder if any of these Palestinians were involved in any attacks. Anyway, it's time to end this brutal decades-long occupation. The world leaders stand idly by and do nothing - shameful.

    I agree. I've seen the way they treat Palestinians... they treat them like criminals, the whole lot of them. I hope soon that everything will be but back the way it was.
