Harmless geeks. Follow them around and step on teh back of their shoes over and over again. They soon go away.

@Stewart....why do you say unjust? It is the Japanese way. If his car was not there it would not have been hit. And since the driver was not covered, perhaps the covered driver would have avoided it. Guilty according to Japanese thinking.
But I think it is really really really stupid and the judge should be pushed over a cliff.. Then his family would make Japan pay as they own the cliff...and if the cliff was not there, he would not have died.

This is not the first burger place to do it. Down at Enoshima, there is "Shonan Burger" There is not one item on the menu that has a burger between the buns. Place is always packed.

I stopped a woman and showed her my groceries...not junk food and the receipt and asked why were food staples taxed like luxury goods. She laughed and they hit the gas. idiots.

At onsens they push alcohol on you like crazy and then expect you to get up early to check out. Rude, loud and crazy places and not relaxing. Tattoos should be the least of their worries.
Check in times should be much earlier, and check out time much later. Huge speakers in the rooms and hallways should be against decibel laws. How difficult is it to change a futon sheet and vacuum a room with no furniture?
People who have tattoos are generally quiet and respectful. Leave them alone.

They have vagina and penis candy at the fertility festivals...so what is wrong with riding in a kayak that resembles a vagina. They are the same shape anyway.

The American jets scrambling out of Atsugi Air Base in Kanagawa-ken got so bad, that Yamato-city pulled a law suit and won. Now everyone is entitled to get double glazed windows, silent doors, air con units and papered walls...plus a silent kitchen hood.
The bill for my place comes out to ¥4,245,000 Yes. That high. I have a lot of windows. Guess what the cost to me is? ¥0
Thanks for paying your taxes everyone.
I do not think the noise will be muffled though by the glass... we open our windows all year long as we are not typical Japanese cave dwellers.
