    But some residents are wary about staying in buildings for fear of possible aftershocks

    So, what do they intend to do? Live in a tent in the park for the rest of their lives? The Tohoku quake was over five years ago and they are still getting aftershocks. Sadly, this is the fault of the government for failing to acknowledge the 'real' danger of severe earthquakes in Japan - the aftermath! They have allocated evacuation areas, which are not suitable to temporarily house the minions and are very slow to react in a housing crisis situation. Many of the Tohoku evacuees are still living in temporary housing and shelters more than five years after the event. This is mainly due to relief funds and support trickling down from the government. But, they can spend trillions of yen on the flipping Olympics. "Nero fiddled while Rome burned!" The Japanese government seem to be very good at fiddling, don't they?

    Yeah, so why is is this recall of millions of vehicles only happening in the US? Why hasn't there been any investigation into it in Japan? I own a Stepwgn in the models being recalled in the US, but have heard nothing about a recall in Japan.

    Oh, this is so pathetic on so many levels! Man up Japan! Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You brought the war on by yourselves and you lost everything because of it. Accept it!

    I saw this on another website with a photo of the coats. They are mostly Yakult delivery girl's coats. Let's hope this creep gets some counselling for his illness although, I doubt if he will.

    So, one would assume the money was from South African bank accounts. So, why do you think these thieves came to Japan to steal the money? Obviously due to laxed security and the 'head in the sand' mentality of the locals. However, there are cameras on all 7 bank ATMs and records of times and dates of the withdrawals, so they should be able to identify them. However, it's quite likely they has their faces covered with masks or bike helmets, which is another laxed security measure. There are big signs on all the doors stating 'no helmets' but plenty of people were them into the shops. I'd say these thieves are long gone and spending the haul on the beaches of Fiji.

    Abe has said he will make an appropriate decision on the sales tax increase, taking into account opinions from experts on the economy.

    this statement should read, "We will increase sales tax straight after the election!"

    The cost of weddings is offset by the guest's contributions. The last Japanese wedding I went to cost me ¥60,000 for a 'donation' plus a gift! The Japanese custom of giving money at weddings is absurd! It's no surprise people are cutting back on receptions as the population gets poorer.

    Police suspect Iwazaki is Tomita’s fan.

    Her fan? It seems more likely he hated her. That's the dark side of these akihabara Lolita style idols. They attract all kinds of creeps. I hope she recovers.

    Well, possibly the younger generation are starting to believe all the international reports about all the poisons, heavy metals and plastics in seafood, especially in smaller fish and cetaceans. Or, possibly they are starting to believe how the constant rape of the oceans will eventually destroy the planet and they are accepting the responsibility for being one of the main culprits.

    Cue the Frozen theme song, 'Let it go!" Obama had as much to do with the bombings as I did. It's strange how the Japanese complain about how ridiculous it is for the Asian comfort women used in Japanese WW2 brothels to keep requesting apologies, but here we are with the Japanese doing exactly the same thing! Hypocrites! Do we see each Japanese prime minister lining up to apologise to all the Asian countries they invaded? Of course not! So why should Obama? "Let it go!"

    Vote 1 - Koizumi 2016

    He is the best prime minister Japan has had in the last 30 years! His policies were not popular with the burauecrats and he was ousted for trying to change the Japanese economy to support the working classes. And, he still has awesome hair!

    @Brian Wheway - Nobody is disputing the fact that taxes have to be paid. It is the fact that Abe has postponed introducing the tax increase until after the election is the issue. He's as slippery as an eel! Hopefully, the voters will see through his ploy and vote him back onto the backbench, where he should be.

    Abe says G-7 need to boost demand, address supply constraints

    This coming from a man who refuses to lift the price fixing and supply limiting of the rice and other other agricultural products in Japan. Does this goose ever think before he speaks or does he just spurt out anything that comes to mind?

    Abe to decide on sales tax hike after upper house election

    I think this a misinterpretation of the truth. It should read, "Abe to 'postpone' sales tax hike until after the election to keep the voter's favor." He's a sly old fox!

    Is resigning really a way of taking responsibility? I'm sure that, facing corporate fraud charges would be more appropriate.

    Exactly Yubaru! Who will make the employers increase salaries of temp and contract workers? They won't do it if they don't have to. This was proven Newley three years ago when he gave corporations tax cut, which were supposed to be passed onto employees as salary increases. Abe is the king of pipe dreams and political rhetoric

    So, are they sorry because they did it or because they caught?

    I believe there are two kinds of criminals in this world. There are the clever criminals and the caught criminals. Try to rib a convenience store has to be one of the stupidest ideas a criminal could every have. There security cameras everywhere, the staff are trained to throw dye balls and the cash is regularly removed from the registers. Just stoopid!

    in Japan, where a majority of Obama’s hosts still believe the mass bombing of civilians was unnecessary and perhaps a crime.

    A crime? How about what the Japanese did in China, South Korea, Taiwan, the Phillipines and Singapore? Not to mention the totally unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor. Yes, Japan was the victim in WW2, but it was a victim of its own stupidity.
