Bit out of the way but well worth a visit.
Lots of stuff to explore like old toys that kids can try out, one location was also the inspiration for the dispensary in 'Spirited away'.

Found the article:
He is now doing the same for Nagasaki and European POW.
Heard his story is being made into a movie, he even met with the grandson of Truman.
Kudos and respect to him we need more people like him.

I will miss her when I visit the Zoo next time .Often take my son there for a Picnic.
Yeah, an old and rather small Zoo mostly exhibiting local wildlife, but great for a family outing, both parts.
The Squirrel cage you can walk through is popular, had a few climb up my Body.
There is also the Bunka-en with some great and famous Statues, well worth a visit.
Next door is the Studio where the Nagasaki Peace Park Statue was created, 1/1 original is also there.
RIP, Hanako. Will miss you every time when the Hana-chan or Evo-zou rubbish trucks come around.

Did the water in her lungs match the water where the Body was found or did she drown somewhere else?
Important detail that is missing here.

Bodies don't fall straight down from a building, they tend to land a bit further away.

7-11 has. 22000 ATM's plus online banking, to check every transaction x combination s will only be triggered if a transaction is flagged.
Now 22.000 ATM easily do 78 transactions easily during peak hours.
Next time it might be transactions targeting another bank in other countries.
Too many possible combinations to check everything.
ATM's and Banks can-t tell who uses the card not an original from a faked one as they deal with data streams only.

You are jumping to conclusions. I never studied Taijutsu nor any other JMA.
Just met Hatsumi San via a sparring Partner, myself all CMA for the last 41yrs.

Thank you, Sensei .
Tired of debates between the different Taijutsu/Ninjutsu styles and which is the original and authentic style, besides too many fakes and untruths out there about Ninja.
Besides the lady in the picture looks like an everyday lady given her clothing.

I don't care about discussions on the Net, I once heard it from Hatsumi Sensei directly.
Or can you explain those more complex origins?

Kunoichi means woman, combine the Katakana for Ku, No and Ichi and you have the Kanji for woman.
Very nice pic.

This morning on the news they said that the net was ripped before, they showed images if the place. Also the kid climbed up a few items that formed a staircase.
The window was still open to a 30cm gap.
The Net was ripped from the top right corner and the bottom still attached it was one of those protruding windows seen often here.
RIP, little one.

1.400 transaction is a drop in the bucket for a bank, especially if they go through approved by the overseas bank/credit company.
How many 7-11 ATM are there? And they are a small percentage of the daily transactions .
Standard Bank/ Barclays is the biggest bank in SA.

Why would!d an ATM be at risk for using International cards?
So they do accept INTERNATIONAL Credit and Bank cards but the money comes from the Imternational banks that issued the cards.

Many pensioners are struggling financially and disconnect the A/C to keep the electricity bill down. Some can only afford 300yen/day for food(saw a feature in TV about it).
