    Well, we live on the outskirts of Yokohama in a small independent house and I try to mostly use only the electric fan but sometimes it's just not enough... The house itself is still fairly new and well insulated but, as others have mentioned, it's especially the humidity that becomes unbearable.

    We were "treated" to almost exactly the same kind of story just a year or so ago... All those who blame the driver either never drive or have never driven near a kindergarten bus stop... It is not always easy to "hold hands" - which is why, on a separate thread some months ago, a few of us mothers suggested "reins" for the very young. In Japan it's ALWAYS the drivers who are blamed for something they couldn't possibly have avoided.

    I also don't want to hear about more mislabeled food products

    Silvafan - don't worry, I very much doubt you will. The Secrecy Bill passed last December will take care of that.

    I think you understand that the "wrong way round"... "Mislabelling" may be one of the first items to be "kept secret"...

    I just hope the "mental wounds" will also heal. That must have been a terrifying experience for those attacked by the patriarch of their own family...

    The teachers may very well have not known about it. In Japan, the teachers change classrooms, leaving the kids alone in the classroom between lessons.

    the teachers change classrooms

    They did this in my school in Switzerland too however, they always knew EXACTLY what was going on. I'm sorry but I'm not buying this "excuse"...

    @fightingViking; haha, well yeah, I do live alone, rather than with a whole family, so that would explain the bill I have

    Well I'm also living alone since my son is out working from morning to night so - WHERE DO YOU LIVE ??? (Really somewhere in Japan ?).

    No "airbags" ? Or did they simply not deploy ?

    It was lovely and cool, until she chewed the cap

    It's much more difficult to "chew off" a zip-fastener ! You should try the "Ice-Non Pet mattress" !

    This is ridiculous. Just use the sodding aircon.

    My electricity bill is around 4000yen a month for the year, apart from in summer when, it leaps to around 9000yen a month

    Where do you live ??? I'm moving there instantly ! Our bill comes to 15 000 yen with "minimal use" of the air-conditioner...

    Any park is a "getaway" place in any town and there are some very beautiful parks all over Japan. Destroying such a "historical" one is pure disrespect and a real shame.

    Rape is better prevented than punished.

    That's easier said than done... in ANY country...

    Nobody ever heard of "Ice-Non" ? It's a kind of "ice-pillow". You won't need a "wet" pillow case, just a thin towel around it and use it as a pillow. It's great for pets too ! My dog "swore" by his little "Ice-Non" mattress ! (The fridges are all working anyway ! Just pop enough "Ice-Non" for each "animal" - human or otherwise - in the freezer !)

    @sensei258

    @ wontond - I agree. At 40 (kinda old to have a baby anyway), I'm bettin she was a single parent and the "father" wasn't involved. The Okinawan sun is brutal. There's no way she didn't know what would happen. She didn't want the responsibility/impediment to her lifestyle

    Whether she was a single mother or not (some of us start out "married" and get divorced along the way) if she wasn't willing to take on the responsibility of having a child, she could have thought of having an abortion - which is perfectly "legal" in Japan. I just cannot understand any woman going through childbirth (with our first, the baby and I BOTH nearly died) just to let a 5 month old die in an "oven" of a car. She MUST have known ! Just getting into my car, before the engine and "aircon" kick in, is already stifling !

    There are times when I wish I could thumb up the Moderators...

    Readers, please refrain from posting grisly suggestions for the suspect's punishment. It lowers the level of discussion and makes you look like savages.

    Having said that, I think "talking to strangers" (in case of need) is alright, it's "answering" strangers who ask strange questions is not... I'm so glad the young girl is safe at home now ! I just hope she's not too traumatized by this awful ordeal...
