True objective journalism should be conducted very much the same way as an objective teacher.
A good teacher tells you where to look but not what to see!
With that said all sides are guilty of propaganda. Even here at JT. It's up to the reader to recognize when they are being misguided.

Japan's Family Court system will drag out any case. In some cases it's a total of 4 - 6 hours in a year.
Divorce: 3 - 5 years
Custody Battle: 5 - 10 years
Women sit at home and relax. The system is self-serving. Billions of yen in wasted time. Time to be a divorce lawyer, get paid.

Doesn't bother me. As long as it okay for me to splash on aftershave or cologne then it's fine. I need to clip my nails as well. I don't like to scratch people.
If there is some gender equality in there then YES, it doesn't bother me.

"Let it go? ."
I was in the ward office today. I went down to B1 to smoke a cigarette in a government building. On the wall there was a poster that read No More Hiroshima, No More Nagasaki! Never again!
What if I told you to "Let It Go!"
Nah, they should never "Let It go!!". South Koreans are right in their history and their beliefs.

Annoying and talentless group. Which is a really cold thing to say. Why? Cause some of them might actually be talented but are not allowed to play an active role in their music.
Words like scripted, contrived come to mind when I hear AKE48 or any of the spinoffs.
It's the the pedophile like fans and AKB's producer that I hate. Men who wish for naive women that can be controlled or manipulated to their whims. Disgusting.
Not to mention the spammed exploitation of this group. I pray they will be gone before the 2020 Olympic Games.
Posted in: Many Japan Today readers hate AKB48 and insult them every chance they get. Yet the megapopular all-girl group has tens of millions of fans in Japan and Southeast Asia. Why so much hate for the group?

Well, there you have it folks. Just as so many of us predicted.
No lawyer in his right mind is going to challenge these guys. That's a career ending case. And you thought the yakuza still sport punch perms.
Nah, it's these guys, politicians, company presidents....the real mafia. They won't spend a day in jail. You on the other hand will spend years in prison and will be fined if you don't have a light on your bicycle.

Suicide always leads to speculation......why? Why kill your wife?
I love the optimism here and the readiness to put the blame on society.
Your assumptions allow plenty of room for a sweet old lady by his side. She's a woman so she must have been an angel suffering.
I'd rather consider the more likely scenario. He was fed up with her. The only reason he stayed in the marriage is because of Japan's age old marriage laws that would have crushed him.
I say when he got the chance he strangled the old hag without mercy. Maybe something he had been wanting to do for a long time.
But we'll never know will we? All we can do is speculate or accept what the media wants us to believe.

This is SO ...NOT...gonna happen. In Japan people smear other people ALL the time. Sometimes they do it verbally but most of the time they do it bureaucratically in documents.
Relax Mr. Kan. Abe is only try to make sure that Fukushima is blamed on you and your party.

Although I love Apple products and devices one must purchase these things knowing that YOU are the product now. Most true nerds will know that Edward Nigma wanted to revolutionize TV with his unique satellite but his goal was to make US the product just like Apple has successfully done.
*if you don't know who Edward Nigma is, you are not a nerd, not even a Guest Pass.
Apple is the new Microsoft. "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villian".
Apple is going to muscle companies around. Business is war. We shouldn't be surprised.. This book thing is small potatoes compared to the destruction of the Constitution and your civil rights. Mr. Snowden spilled a big ol can of beans on those of you who love EASY to do, LEARNED in 5 minutes, think you are part of the nerd club.

I'm all for holding women responsible for their crimes but this is WRONG!! That's a GROWN man, epileptic or not. It appears to me that everything in Japan is money making opportunity.
@smithinjapan I respect your opinion and the analogy with drunk drivers is a decent attempt to show she's culpable BUT it's simply NOT the same. If you agree with this it may come back someday to bite you.
You see the real winner is the INSURANCE company that has found a way to duck out of paying. If they don't have to pay then the blame is shifted to the mother who DEFINITELY doesn't have 125 million. So the families who are hoping for compensation won't see a dime of it. They actually lose by being allowing themselves to be distracted from the REAL money bags.
Now, of course, I can't be sure if this is going to play out as I described it but going after dear old mom is NOT going to get you paid. If the families REALLY wanted this then they are just vindictive as ever. Sounds like Ancient Japan when they saw fit to wipe out a families entire line.
Obviously the judge thinks this is okay.

I think it would have been a great idea. It is an example of American Science and Air Superiority. We must always remind our children what happened and more importantly WHY it happened.
There is YOUR-story and there is HIS-tory which usually goes to the WINNER*
*if there is such a thing
Why should we NOT honor the men and women of our armed forces who protected American lives by doing such an unspeakable act. It is truly devastating what happened to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However, if Japan ever attacked the U.S again I'd give the ol Enola Gay a good waxing and full tank a gas for her payload.
If the Prime Minister of Japan can visit Yasukuni Shrine then we should practice our way as well. Contrary to popular belief we do have a place in our hearts for Japan so we won't celebrate openly too much.
