    Now why can't a there be a similar situation in Japan? Will it ever be possible to screen a film "across Japan" that shows the suffering people throughout China, Korea and other parts of Asia endured at the hands of the IJA? Maybe not in my lifetime. Hypocrisy.

    Sensato,

    Sadly your average Taro & Keiko just cant take a bit of truth & information about what Japan did. Just look at the sex slave issue, it would & IS similar wrt to pretty much anything Japan did from the 1920-1945 time frame, look away, ignore & of course the chance to get into theatres or on TV............LOW!!!

    I don't fly much but I did fly NRT-AKL-NRT economy on short notice for about Y165,000 in total which I think is not bad

    However I do work in the freight biz & fuel rates for airlines are updated twice a month & they HAVE dropped roughly around 50-60% from say a year ago.................

    Maybe JT-ers should consider flying as cargo if you want to save some $$$ haha!!

    Ok................... Seems a bit odd Sohara san says she only learned about this story when:

    Sohara said she actually learned about Sadako from a textbook Takamaro brought home from school.

    Sounds like this was when she was living in the US.....perhaps not, but still VERY odd as Borscht says above, I mean I remember learning about this story almost immediately after reading up on Hiroshima.......so seems very strange or a bit of a tale on her part........

    Anyway I am sure the movie is ok if not a bit odd, and yeah leaving out Japan starting WWII in the Far East, SE Asia is all too typical sadly & why Japan & Japanese are STILL having an absolutely horrible time wrt WWII.

    Yeah JASRAC is a real shake down bunch of SOBs for sure, I have heard a few stories, one a guy made is OWN music for his shop & JASRAC still hunted him like a dog.

    And these wedding joints.............. they allow you to use CDs & will arrange to play the song you want(if you don't have the CD) for a few thousand yen WTF!!!

    Like speed says its greed like this that makes people feel NO GUILT what so ever for downloading free music.

    Its also bad with software movies etc.......

    I am happy to pay fair price for fair use but music movies & software "rights" are off the charts so they can screw us worldwide & they WONDER why people copy..........well DUH!!!

    Posted in: It is natural that copyright holders want to protect their rights because high-quality copies can be made easily today thanks to the advancement of digital devices. However, it is also understandable that consumers find it unfair that use of legitimately downloaded songs at wedding parties is prohibited, because they don’t intend to distribute pirated copies.

    This kind of thing has LONG pissed me off, debt being collected from those who didn't rack it up, family paying for what other ADULT family members did on their OWN!!!

    It make NO bloody sense at all.

    And why the hell don't train companies get INSURANCE for this kind of thing, & even worse these IDIOTIC courts & their ruling & utter lack of even simple logic are theatre of the frigging absurd!!

    IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!! If the rail line doesn't PLAN, BUDGET for these things its their own damned fault!!

    Sickening how courts let big business rip the little people to shreds & when its the other way around, GOOD LUCK winning against big biz & if you do.........here is your JPY1,000 enjoy...........NOT!!

    iwabuchi is CLEARLY an idiot, if he has a wife I hope she read this & kicks his A$$!!!! Can dream right!

    No wonder this country is going down the crapper, why would people want families when they can have a KAISHA..........I would rather be homeless living under a bridge than be a typical salaryman what a god awful existence that is

    Some of you may recall my comments wrt the statue near the J-Embassy, I said Japan needs to EARN its removal.

    Well this BS at the UN is NOT how you go about it!!

    Clearly Japan once again shows its utter insincerity with respect to the sex slave issue!

    My heart goes out to those still living to hear about this has got to beyond painful!! Japan is still MENTALLY raping these women, they clearly have NO SHAME what so ever!

    Another VERY EMBARASSING day to be living in Japan, its getting harder to stomach the poison this country spews!!

    And they have the nerve to say they should have a permanent seat on the UN Security Council, Japan are you NUTS!

    A tranquilser gun is the best non lethal way to stop a large animal, putting up a net like that will just get you trampled/ injured or even killed.

    BINGO, we have a winner!!

    I too worked on farms in my youth, bulls are extremely powerful animals, always dangerous, all cows can VERY easily cause serious injury or death, watch those hind legs the kicks are ferocious!!

    Also will I don't hunt, I fished & camped a lot, bears, moose, deer, raccoons etc all very serious critters, ESPECIALLY if stressed out.

    Sorry these netting displays are silly, stupid & if actually tried VERY DANGEROUS!!

    This daft scenario again LOL!!! By the time they got the net out the zebra would be history........and how many times have we watched on tv while real life fools try to coral a monkey, boar, or even a cat in a tree or something...........................these capture events seldom are successful

    Ueno zoo, invest in a tranquilizer gun, much better way to go about this otherwise you all look like your on the Benny Hill show!!!!

    A law on criminal prosecution stipulates that evidence and files on a case must be sent to prosecutors

    A laws says you!..........Ah then I guess we can expect some cops to be up on charges shortly!!! ....................................................................Bwahahahahha what was I thinking, of course nothing much will happen.

    Here is a wild guess, I bet this problem is HUGE nation wide, anyone else think so............Too bad I couldn't bet on it, would be EASY $$$$!!!!!

    I agree with BB, the fact that these people who have been detained are HUGE & all over the news in Japan says a lot.

    If these were just average folks the coverage wud be endless & tons of interviews of people (seen from the neck down) who vouch for them etc..............

    The fact there is none of this that I am aware of.....................kind of says something
