    It's always the same! Whenever a mother kills herself and/or her kid the post-natal depression fans cone out in force. It's not post-natal depression at all! Yeah, maybe there is some depression involved, but the depression comes from the society, not child birth.

    I'm always surprised by the number of illegal bikers in Japan. They put those extremely noisy exhaust pipes on them and bend the number plate up so it can't be read from behind. Then, there are those bosozoku twits that ride around in packs just to annoy everyone. Do they have traffic patrols in Japan? Or, is it only bicycle registrations and teenagers' school ID cards they are interested in? I often see the cops checking bicycles and asking teenagers for their school IDs, but rarely see them stopping these annoying monsters on their mosquito bikes!

    Is an otaku summit a good thing?

    There can only be one version of the truth - the correct one! There are at least three different versions in this article and they all seem to be far from the truth.

    right-wingers insist Tokyo’s war was largely defensive and intended to liberate Asia from Western colonialists.

    When I read the obove statement there were only two words that sprang into my mind, 'paranoid' and 'delusional'. When you put these together it describes the mindset of Japan's right-wingers quite well!

    A guy in Australia just got a 6 month jail sentence for clubbing four puppies to death. This "uhum" 'teacher' will get a 10% pay cut for three months, if any kind of punishment at all.

    Ah, yes! Is it the clowns or the monkeys running this circus? This article only mentions the money wasted on untested and stop-gap measures that have all failed. The ice wall was destined to fail from it conception. It seems that nearly every idea these clowns (or monkeys) come up with is just a stop-gap fix with no real crisis or project management. After four years they still do not have any kind of solid plan as to how they are gonna store all their radioactive crap nor do they have any idea how to stop it leaking into the pacific at a rate of hundreds of tons every day. I haven't surfed the east coast of Japan since the meltdowns and I won't until there is some kind of fix for the leaking radioactive water streaming from the plant. I wonder how I'd go seeking compensation for lifestyle changes from TEPCO? And, the government, who owns 51% of TEPCO, is just keeping out of it and doing bugger all! But, the all-mighty leader 'Abe' has proclaimed, "It's under control!"

    So, if they pass the bill to let 18 year olds vote, will that mean they can be sentenced as adults? The leniency of this sentence is only because he is a minor (at 19?). This is the kind of offense that should carry the death penalty. It's a premeditated murder of a random victim and he has shown no remorse. Hang the little trucker!

    Don't hold your breath for this to happen people. This is just another politician speaking out of the top of his head. Yeah, it would be great to remove all those ugly powerlines and get rid of this cement poles, but if you consider the scale of the opperation it's an impossible task. They will probably waste a couple of million bucks getting rid of a few of them around the palace and Parliament House in central Tokyo, but that's all the 'beatification' that will be done, if any.

    Wow! That's pretty scary. I probably would have opened the door to him too, but I doubt if I would have been intimidated by him. I have no doubt this perp has been staking out this couple and he will appear on local cameras. It shouldn't be too hard for the flops to pick this one up. He obviously knew which apartment to hit.

    As soon as you are intimidated into changing your lifestyle due to terrorist threats they have already won! Terrorism can happen anywhere at any time. Even Japan fell victim to domestic terrorism with the sarin gas attack in the subway. Of course, if you intend to travel to areas where there is a known terrorism threat you need your head read! However, you have to keep it in perspective. You are many more times likely to be killed by a car while you are crossing the road than to be killed by a terrorist.

    Drunk in the afternoon on a Sunday? That's not so unusual, but driving is very irresponsible. I'm sure this guy will become an 'ex' high school teacher as a result of this.

    Despite all the turmoil, this base will go ahead. The U.S. needs a base in the northern pacific and Okinawa is it.

    They should be suing the owners of the ground for failing to provide adequate fencing. Suing the kid's parents because he kicked the ball is absolutely absurd! It's even more absurd that he courts supported it.

    So, in the past two years, the only things Abenomics has achieved are increased sales tax, reduced corporate tax and changed the labor laws to make it easier to fire people. There has been no change in anything except that, Naoki Average is supporting big business by paying higher taxes and having less rights in the workplace. Unemployment is increasing, despite government figures, salaries have stagnated and decreased, spending has decreased by more than the sales tax increase. The national debt is still growing and the pension system is in complete fail. Move over Hreece and Spain because Japan will be joining you in the next three or four years.

    The Japanese love their work helmets! I remember seeing three guys repairing an artificial grass soccer pitch wearing helmets. They were working in the middle of the pitch. I'm not sure what the overhead risk was was though. Possibly meteors or comets.

    This is possibly the silliest thing I have heard of in a long time. This earthquake and tsunami were a once in a millennium event and the chances of it happening again [in the same area] are virtually zero. The money would be better spent on better education, evacuation procedures and early warning systems.

    I've seen this group protesting a lot over the last years or so. I don't think its right to compare Abe with Hitler, especially with those photoshopped images. Yeah, I agree there are many things wrong with Abe and his right-wing cronies, but he is a far cry from being Hitler.

    I remember the other week, a bill was passed about hate speech. It seems they have managed to quell international hate speech, but domestically it is still happening.

    The broad demographic of Japanese men committing this indecent act makes makes one wonder just how common it really is. I've caught four guys in the last three years filming up skirts on train station escalators.
