    In my bachelor days I lived 1minute from tateishi stn, was great for getting to work in about 30min door to door & all the little drinking joints & places to but food was great!

    I also love going to these little drinking spots, meet all kinds of people from all walks of life.

    If I was ever a bachelor again & had to live in Tokyo I would check out Tateishi again!!

    “Is freedom, equality, human rights and democracy guaranteed under the Constitution equally guaranteed for the people of Okinawa who have no choice but to live their lives sandwiched between the Japan-U.S. security arrangements and the SOFA?” Onaga asked.

    Sadly Onaga san the justice system in Japan does NOT & has NOT provided Japanese people what you wrote above for any Japanese since WWII. Best to work on that before worrying about SOFA etc. In any case don't expect to much from the mainland, mainlanders don't get much either

    Its been prevalent for decades now at both amateur & pro levels, I feel for the clean ones as people will always wonder, were they clean. Armstrong really made it look bad.

    I have long since given a damn about sports except for watching kids, young people enjoying, but the drug culture has also sadly creeps younger as time passes.

    Low abe, real LOW! But hey they use 3/11, used abductee's relatives for decades, lie & cheat to get the 2020 Olympics, continue to nothing to solve the many many problems/issues facing Japan...................

    Just business as usual, the rot continues but can enough locals smell the stench.....

    ..................beyond the pale!!!

    Why aren't these criminals behind bars, keys thrown away!!!!

    What can we expect 5 years from now a report showing much more radiation was released................my mind is going to have a meltdown................

    This country treats its own with such utter contempt, I just cant find words for this CRAP!

    What an awful day to be a gaijin or Japanese living in Japan, govt & big biz have so much less than zero credibility its impossible to actually describe in words, man I need to dust off my exit strategy, there is so little hope for this country...........

    inheritance taxes are so the 1%ers don't accumulate ALL the wealth.

    I agree govts talking is also a bad idea, the j-govt will squander this like they do the taxes we pay each day of the year.

    But letting the rich vacuum the worlds CA$H is also very dangerous & they are vacuuming far too much already while pretending they cant afford to raise societies most vulnerable

    This wont end well likely & its going to get worse in Japan & elsewhere............ glad I am getting older, sorry folks I aint rich!

    This statement shows very clearly the ignorance around WWII that is so pervasive in Japan, as a non-Japanese its embarrassing to read such a low level of understanding.

    Sadly this just illustrates the level of white washing of Japans history, but many in Japan sadly wont know that...........

    Yeah there was a lot of pilfering of the old blues for sure by lots of bands, but Zep was/is pretty damned guilty, they even have come clean on some, the Willie Dixion stuff being an example.

    I bet Page was rather influenced by the Spirit song & just cant admit it after all this years, oh well I still love old blues & Zep anyway

    This program is great, I donated almost Y200,000 got all kinds of stuff in return & deducted it all minus the Y2000 per donation from my local taxes.

    In over 2 decades here its the first time I have gotten something for a small part of the taxes I have paid, I intend to spend as much this year!!

    Japan has left this problem & a lot of others festering for decades & is now hoping to fix things by treating a few symptoms.

    By all means allow for foreigners in to help, BUT that wont fix the problem except for a fortunate few. This is going to get a lot worse over time, scary stuff!

    Like I have been saying for ages here, you wanna grow old in Japan?? Its not pretty now & its headed for worse each day!

    Yep sf2k you are sadly CORRECT!!

    This perpetrator is as American as any of the others who have got a hold of guns & went on a killing spree, just another nut job of which there are a GREAT many in the NRA!!

    I too have also said the NRA is a real danger to American society, if there were checks needed a great many would not likely be allowed to own fire arms & that's why they back the NRA.

    The US is a dangerous place, that goodness I don't live in the ""greatest"" country in the world, no thanks!

    Come on you yanks you all should be able to do much better, start shaping up before its too late!

    Folks, welcome to the more modern/recent versions of SEX SLAVERY, alive & thriving as it always has, sadly.

    The FACT that there is SO LITTLE help for these women is quite astounding.

    And a handful of posters here seem utterly clueless as to whats happening.

    Here is the thing, IF more women could get REAL work far far fewer would be consider or get tricked into being in the sex industry & a lot are being forced to be raped, and police etc are doing far too little to fix this.

    It really is a black mark on Japan when you have """""talent"""""" agencies forcing women into pron........that is really messed up
