One thing the traveller will never miss is the Kanazawa Station Dori.. is one of the most beautiful entrances I ever see in a train station emulating the trees of Kenrokuen in winter (while Kanazawa is really freeze, Kenrokuen Garden has the branches of the trees protected by nets in order to keep the form and avoid the snow to breaking them down, another good reason to head to Ibaraki in winter)...

Good for them, hope they can be happy, while the theme of having children is a little hard, while both of them can have them, so there could not be much problem to build a family.
In this case of the homosexual marriage, the hardest point is for the men, they can not have children the natural way, so they can declare they are a marriage to adopt child, so this is where goverment say no-no... but slowly they are winning that right... while the children have the liberty to choose who to love, I think there should not be problem about it...

Uber has not much possibilities against Japan bureaucracy... I think Uber had become the "Napster" of public transportation and soon someone will be smart enough to make a official taxi-friendly service that could demolish Uber and keep the taxi drivers happy...

It can be considered sex crime if the criminal sending the pictures wants to poke humiliation of the victim or wants to get money from the victim. Hackers can do the same, but they know they put in jeopardy if they try at least to contact their victims, indeed the hacker wanted money but also show to the world the flaws in security a lot of people have, being sure that someone can win an Oscar but maybe not know how to put a secure password in the internet, where the flaws in security can put you naked in front of hackers.

Japan could have a better World Cup but somehow the offensive was very poor, if they pushed offensive a little bit more, maybe the first two games could be won, but weather and a humble defense paid the price at the end.
