Great decision by the Hotel and obviously South Korean's government supported the decision.
Safety is a right to for the public sector. Japan's Embassy is an excellent place to hold their party / ceremony.
I for one would consider it pretty rude and insulting if my enemy was allowed to come into my house, hold a party and leave things in a mess.
Not all money is good money.

Of course it looks nice on the website. They keep the zombies in B ward barricaded inside. They're the ones who suffered from food poisoning and unsanitary conditions.

Hmmm It sounds like this guy was TROLLED hard which might be a more appropriate title for this article. There's nothing like an expert Troll to take you out of your normal mindset.
I wonder if that poster sent him the troll face after he got what he needed to embarrass this politician.

@Jeff. Okay with ONE post you fully convinced me that this obscenity law is unfair. Furthermore I suspect gender discrimination.
THIS IS TOTALLY UNFAIR TO WOMEN!!!
The links you posted are not the only place where I've seen open male genitalia.
There's a chinese restaurant called 8 Cafe near Roppongi Hills that has a FULL size golden penis in the middle of the restaurant.
It's time to stop such discrimination. Allow women to express themselves artistically and sexually. WE need to make a stand for this woman.
They are going to suffocate her!! Women readers if you don't respond to this you shouldn't complain it's a man's world later on.
With all the disturbing comments in Japan's parliament and politicians belittling women this arrest is just the byproduct of their chauvinism. If you allow this to happen women will always be under the foot of Japanese men.

Higashi Kanagawa Saiseikai? If it's the one in Higashi-Kanagawa I've stayed in this place. It's a hell hole from the start. Very poor sanitation. No WINDOWS in some rooms. This report doesn't surprise me at all.

Asked about who was behind the cyber attacks, Taniwaki said, citing an announcement earlier this year by Tokyo’s Metropolitan Police Department,** that attacks by Chinese people or people who understood Chinese were on the rise**.
Come at me Bro!! I like the Chinese. I buy their products. If I open my mouth and practice Freedom of Speech I might agree with the Chinese sometimes. Depends on the issue.
Come squash me for showing any form of dissent!! I own a PC. Must be a hacker. I'm eating fried rice too. You think I'm behind these attacks?

It not that I have no regards for the rights of fathers - they do have some rights.
There it is READERS. The fatal flaw revealed!!!
Notice how this individual has chosen the word "some right". He's honest in his response and this is great!! Because of this response we can now clearly see that the word "SOME" must be changed to "EQUAL rights".
Father's should have EQUAL rights.....not some.
I'm not bashing you Kimuszukashii. No, not at all. In fact, the sole purpose of this post is so that you can see the flaw in your logic.
Have a good day!!
Posted in: I have received many e-mails from Japanese women living in other countries. Those women, who wish to divorce their husbands and return to Japan with their children, asked whether their cases are subject to the convention.

Japan should admit it's mistakes. There's nothing wrong with this so-called map.
It is what it is. People should know WHERE things happened.
If Japan's PM continue to visit Yasukuni then it's alright for China to visit the past.
The only difference between the places is that one is a place war criminals and the others are places where WMDs were used to end the war and bring Victory to the Allies.
It's just history. Nothing to get upset over.
Japan lost WWII.....it's a fact. Just like the World Cup!! That's all it is. Nobody hates you for it. Heinous things happen in war. Just admit it.

The bottom line is this....You can't run from your problems anymore. Deal with it.
If it's an abusive husband then you have to deal with it in the country you are in first. Vice versa likewise

Divorce is a billion dollar industry. The family courts and lawyers thrive on it.
I believe that Japanese are law abiding citizens. Even those women who are unaware of divorce law are often aided by the Family Courts in Japan.
Now the rules have changed. With that said I'd expect those women who wish to be in complete control of their marriages will ask their foreign spouse to reside in Japan. If the male spouse wishes otherwise the divorce will come quicker than expected or the marriage may not even take place at all..
With that said, if you are man who wants to marry a Japanese woman you should do so in your home country. At least outside of Japan men have human rights. Here in Japan marriage is a Japanese woman's second income or primary income.

I heard this remark on Twitter and I believe it's true.
"75% of the planet is covered by water. The other 25% is covered by Tim Howard"
There are some teams that are just spectacular to watch and then there are teams like the U.S. that make you FEEL for them. We could see these guys playing with all they had in them. That kind of effort and dedication earns respect They won over fans even in a losing effort.
Over the decades soccer has been questioned for it's sincerity and fairness.
I believe the goal line technology and some instant replay is helping the sport. Americans are getting behind it.. We want a fair match. When you see a fair match you get honest responses like the ones above. Belgium was the better team.
It would have been nice to see the U.S go up. Everybody loves something unpredictable.
Finally, Tim Howard.....yeah. I'll put his name in the same sentence as Oliver Kahn. That was some excellent goalkeeping.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

Fellow readers.....see this for what it is. It was an opportunity to get Japanese consumers spending when they were not.
Abe's tax hike has everybody tight on their wallets.
This is not an attempt to hijack the thread or go off topic. The hype and the predictions were done to get you to BUY. Buy anything with the Brazil mark on it from Japanese companies.
Real soccer fans know better than to underestimate the competition at the World Cup the way Japan did. That's flat out delusions of self grandeur.
If JT would be so kind I'd love to know how much money companies made off all the world cup goodies.
In Honda's defense he never said Japan would win the WC. Instead he promised they would get through the Group stage. Something that he never should have done. Is he worried about it? No, he'll land in Narita...give his Gomenasai press conference.....but he's already scheduled to get back to the Russian league. He's out of here.
Millions if not billions go into this event. It sells products!! That's how this works.

Local media identified the dog as a six-year-old bitch named Mego.
Really? Yes, it's technically correct but the dog was a hero. Was it necessary to use THAT particular word to describe the dog?

Japan didn't lose. We have to remember Japan's main religion...Capitalism. If you look at it that way then you realize it was a major success. Super HD TVs plus the clearance sales on the older models. Tap in the money made from merchandising and then press the "equal / sum" button......Tadaa!!! Everybody made money.
Think about it. Abe just raised consumption tax and most of us slowed down our spending habits because of it. So we weren't spending but prior to Japan's exit from the WC we all forking out cash.
Don't deny this. I'd bet money that at least 90% of us tried Nissin's Instant "Brazil Chicken" or "Brazil Seafood" cup noodles. Even if you didn't support Japan's team there were lots of interesting things to drop a 500 coin on.
The advertisers knew the truth. This is why they went balls deep on the advertising and campaigning to get you to buy!
So yeah....Congratulations Japan. You put a lot of money into your economy. The executive board members agree it was a good year for business.
If you want to be angry....then you can be mad at them for not giving it back!! You can be mad for not getting anything in return for your patriotism and support. With that said, you have a perfect example of the state of affairs in Japan. Par for the course I would say.
