    CrazyJoe - Dolphin hunting is not Japanese tradition. It is a tradition practiced only in a certain part of Japan (Taiji).

    Actually CrazyJoe, there are quite a few places around Japan that regularly hunt dolphins and other toothed whales. They do it in Chiba. It's just that Rick O'Barry didn't make them famous, or infamous, as the case may be. Regardless of how barbaric the practice is, the meat from all toothed whales is highly contaminated with mercury, other heavy metals and pesticides. What is wrong with these idiots that they choose to ignore these facts and keep feeding this poison to their kids? It's a criminal act!

    Police said the suspect has denied all charges and said he has never met the victim.

    This actually quite likely. I'm always asking people if they know their neighbors and most people don't. It's a nation of 130 million strangers! Whether or not the neighbor is responsible for the murder I am not gonna speculate. It could have been any one of the local strangers!

    Their country, their right.

    How about, one world, everybody's right? Right to protest, that is. They state the dolphin population is stable, but how would they know? I'm gonna guess their knowledge is based on the fact they catch and kill a few hundred every year, so there must be plenty. The WHO labeled dolphin meat unfit for human consumption and they feed it to their kids, but that doesn't stop them. They profit from selling the dolphins into a shortened lifespan living in an aquarium, but as long as there is money in they'll continue to do it. I remember last year they was a viral video floating around showing a group of elementary school kids being shown how they cut them up. It's just a barbaric practice that should be stopped!

    What a bunch of selfish bastards! I'm wondering how they would feel if it was Iwaki that was evacuated and they were the ones that had to relocate.

    Ha ha! The Japanese companies have got the poops because they have to show their mark up, thus making them have to be honest retailers instead of ripping people off. I'd like to see the same done on Rakuten. I bought a set of guitar pick ups last week for ¥16,000 on Rakuten last week. However, the exact same pick ups ranged up to ¥45,000 for the set from different retailers. I bought an acoustic guitar on Rakuten a few months ago for ¥23,000 (on special -30%). Some retailers have the same guitar for ¥80,000. Shop smart people! Always compare prices on the internet.

    These things are worth a small fortune restored, especially in Japan. That's an early 70's model cos it has the big back window. We used to cut these things up and make beach buggies out of them (30 odd years ago). I had a couple of baja bugs and an old split windscreen combi as well. I built my own 1600 twin port engine and used to just swap bodies over. I feel a bit sorry for the younger generation cos they will never know what it's like to cruise around in a classic old beetle. They were fun cars to drive on and off road.

    As much as this has to be taken seriously I'm gonna guess it's just some loon playing mind games. It's quite different to the girl in Kurashiki. That loon stalked her for months beforehand and did 40 grand worth of renovations to his house to make a soundproof room. Let's hope I am right about this and none of the kids are kidnapped.

    I guess the toilet paper companies paid their racket money this month. From all of life's necessities they highlight toilet paper? That's enough to give you the poops!

    Yeah, Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Abe requests more money for the military while the rest of the country burns. I'm sure all of the people in north-eastern Japan that are still living in temporary housing and high schools are thrilled to hear this. How about the stimulus and family support Abe? How about ensuring employee's salaries are increased to offset the sales tax increase? Or, how about pulling your head out of your right-wing butt and actually doing something constructive?

    This one is a uniquely dispicable act and hopefully the loon responsible is caught quickly.

    So, salaries and spending have decreased after giving corporations huge tax cuts with no enforcing regulations to ensure corporate tax cuts were passed on to workers? And, unemployment has increased after changing the regulations to make it easier for corporations to fire people? Bwahahaha! What huge surprise that is, NOT!

    Abenomics 3 arrow plan = FAIL!

    Japanese officials say they have not detected the dengue virus in mosquitoes caught in Yoyogi Park but they will disinfect areas where sufferers were bitten.

    Eh? So, why are they spraying there?

    And, the mother? She obviously just ditched her kid and never looked back. These kinds of articles are saddening, maddening and sickening. Yeah, the child welfare agency's handling of the case is maddening, but the blame goes to the parents of this poor kid.

    Yeah, but, even I found Abe's comments about the war criminal generals being martyrs to be offensive, so it's not hard to understand the offense taken by those who were victims of Abe's martyrs.

    “I express my grief at the death of martyrs… who sacrificed their lives to form the foundation of peace and prosperity in Japan today,”

    You say what??? Sacrificed their lives to form the foundation of peace? These are criminals that were responsible for the deaths of literally millions of people throughout Asia. They should be shamed and forgotten, not famed and remembered! Using the word 'martyr' is so wrong it disgusts me!
