    Following his arrest, Onaka was quoted by police as saying that he is “interested in young girls.”

    And, he was arrested before and let go? WTF! Pleae, please lock this twisted turd up forever!

    This is the result of a very clever marketing campaign. I've had much better reds than this and also cheaper. I can. Only imagine how much the sales would improve in Japan if they had Pokemon on the label too.

    Sadly, in Japan, it is the work of the defendant to prove his innocence and not the work of the prosecutor to prove his guilt. It is unlikely this guy will receive any compansation, and if he does, it 'might' be enough to cover his legal costs to get out of jail. Sad, but true! He will have to make another application to the court, which cost him even more money that he will not get back. He is better off just moving to another prefecture and starting again!

    Let this be a warning to all you guys out there. In Japan you are guilty until proven innocent. Keep your hands high in the trains fellas. It only takes one irate woman having a bad day and your life is over. You should slap be very careful about any emails you send during a break up or you could find yourself on the end of a stalking charge.

    This is just a ploy to extend his term. He is well aware of the backlash from the proposed second sales tax hike will be political suicide and that is why he postponed it and called an election. Hopefully, enough people will get off their butts and actually to see this right-wing leader and his cronies sent back to the salt mines where they belong. Sadly though, I fear the voter turnout will only be around 50% (as usual) and the majority of those voters are themselves right-wing extremists.

    Keika - You don't know how many women I know, nor do you know how long I have lived in Japan. Nearly every japanese woman I know has had some kind of sexual or power harassment from an ex and I'm talking about hundreds of women cos I have been a university and college teacher in Japan for well over a decade plus the women I have met social circles.

    Wel, dog gone! This is pretty weird! Gotta love his pitiful attempt at an excuse. He took the million yen and blew it in pachinko then let the dogs starve to death and dumped them. However, don't let this one case point a finger at Japanese. Puppy mills are everywhere around the world and very few of them have any scruples. Most of them are worse than chicken batteries. Sadly, there is a lot of moneyto be made from the domestic pet trade. One of my mates makes a lot of only importing pedigree dogs from Australia, especially fox terriers. However, they are not from a puppy mill. They are from a reputed breeder. Australia got very tough on dog breeders over 20 years ago. I think it's high time Japan did the same.

    I'm more concerned about the Japanese bureaucratic 'oyajis' antagonising China with their twisted views of history. It takes two to make a fight. China is not the only antagonist in Asia.

    Um, it wasn't illegal before? Really? I know many women who have been stalked and harassed by there ex-boyfriends or husbands. They are just pathetic little bullies. I've said many times in the past, the main problem with Japanese men is, they have never been punched in the face for being a Richard head. They grow up in sheltered little circles as punk bullies with their orange hair and grey tracksuits and stay that way. The only thing that changes is, a few of them wear suits. A few years ago a saw a woman drop a businessman loser with an awesome kick to the chest at the train station. He obviously had been feeling her up on the train. I applauded her cos it was so damn awesome! However, I should add that, nobody on the crowded train platform stopped or attempted to help, except me, of course. Ostrich syndrome still reigns supreme in Japan. Sadly, it's a nation of 130 million strangers. Many times I've stepped into instances of power and sexual harassment of women in Japan. I grabbed a goon for taking up skirt photos at the train station and I was the one that got into trouble. The cops told me to stay out of Japanese business. Seriously!

    A smaller quota does not comply with the international court ruling. Japan still has to prove their "uhum" 'new' research is actually research. I just wish they would stop wasting so much bloody money on this farce. They are using a ruling against commercial whaling to prove that commercial whaling is viable. That in itself is totally absurd!

    “Abenomics merely expanded the gap” between the haves and the have-nots

    This is quite true, but the LDP has been doing this to Japanese citizens for 70 years. It's nothing new!

    It only takes a split second of lost concentration and 'whammy!' You and your mates are dead! Four young people dead. A sad tale that happens too often all over the world.

    This is just another angle to gain support to restart the reactors.

    Just a little thing about Cleo's statistics. They are based on a per-capita scale. Australia does have a hiigh output of CO2 per-capita, but considering the population is one sixth of Japan and one twelveth of the U.S. the total amount of CO2 is not so high.

    This has been news for nearly twenty years, but nothing has changed. Even if blue fin tuna fishing was stopped altogether it is likely the population would still crash and go into extinction because it has been so badly decimated their numbers are insufficient to recover. And, it's not just the bluefin tuna. Many tuna species are in trouble due to overfishing. The gene pool of the the species are getting weaker and fish are getting smaller due to the big healthy fish being taken out of the gene pool. Many of the Japanese I know eat tuna at least three or four times a week. I've asked many if they were concerned about the fish becoming extinct and the general answer is always the same, "Eat it while you can!"

    The plant has six reactors, three of which were offline when disaster struck on March 11, 2011. A magnitude-9.0 earthquake triggered a huge tsunami which swept into the plant and knocked out its backup power and cooling systems, leading to meltdowns at the three active reactors.

    Let's stop with the self-pitying crap please! TEPCO was advised in 2001 by French nuclear specialists to get the back up generators off the ground and to waterproof all the electrics, which they totally disregarded. Yeah, they have a huge task ahead of them to clean up this disaster. The tsunami was the disaster, but the lack of proper safety upgrades is the catastrophe!

    Yeah, they have 6,000 odd workers going through the plant every day. They also have forty or fifty temp agencies scalping cash from the government to supply the workers. I really cannot understand why this clean up has been left to private companies and not controlled by the government. Yeah, it is TEPCO's plant, but the government owns 51% of it. It's just a huge joke! Although, it's far from being funny!

    A resounding 'Wake the hell up!' To all you people that live in high rise buildings with kids. Don't put bloody furniture on the balcony! Are you really so stupid as to believe your kids won't climb it? I have a 5m X 11m balcony on the 7th floor with heaps of furniture and a small play gym for the kids, but it is all dina-bolted into position and cannot be dragged to the 1.8m fence to be used as purchase or it is all too heavy for kids to move. Wake the hell up people! Kids will climb anything cos that's what kids do. This mother was very bloody lucky and a I hope she has removed the chairs from the balcony, but somehow, I doubt if she has! She probably blames the kid for climbing it!

    Stimulus? Really? Yeah, let's borrow more money and increase the country's debt even further! These old twits have to wake up and realise the only way the economy can recover is through supporting local produce, but that does not mean subsidising it with tax money. It means, join the TPP, increase the taxes on imported goods and reduce the tax on local produce. The sales tax hike was a move to reduce the country's public debt (the money the government owes the public - your wasted taxes). However, as expected, people stopped buying over-priced Japanese goods and they shifted to cheaper imported goods. Australia did it in the 80's and worked very well. Yeah, using Australia as an example is not good cos the GDP is a sixth of Japan's, but Japan's greatest resource is its workforce, which is being abused and not utilised!

    harvey pekar - Yeah, but come on, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will really turn these economy frowns upside down.

    Haha! The Olympics will break Japan's economy. History shows that nearly every country/city that hosted the Olympics suffered a huge economic failure after the olympics had finished. Japan is going in with an already failed economy and will not recoup the investments made in stadiums and infrastructure modifications to accommodate the Olympics. All they will achieve by hosting the Olympics is, further increasing the huge public debt.

    Yep, myself and many other people in these threads have known from the outset that Abenomics would fail and it's not only due to the increase sales tax. His growth strategies were based on markets that no longer exist for Japan, cars, electronics, etc. all of which have been taken over by other countries, mostly within Asia. Then, there is also his interpetation of 'globalisation'. By his logic it means exporting as much Jaoanese crap as possible, but it's a two-way street. Then, there is the procrastination over the TPP, which Japan desperately needs to increase spending and to make the sales tax hike mean something for the economy. The price fixing and subsidies in the agricultural industry is the reason Japan cannot climb out the hole. There is no money in Japan and printing more money has only achieved an even greater public debt. Japan's economy is doomed as long as these stoned-headed bureaucrats and their cronies run the country.
