    It is a matter of fact that a British national wouldn't get taxed when working overseas (I.e working in Japan) and that we can voluntarily contribute towards taxes back home if we choose to do so. Something that the US citizens don't have the right to do.

    One of my videos from a trip to Amanohashidate has been blocked in the US because of some footage that contains a AKB48 track that was playing whist I was on the cablelift.... That's pretty annoying.

    Stunned. Just totally stunned by this heinous act of terrorism against innocent citizens and the amount of victims. My deepest thoughts are with those who were killed, their families and the whole of France. I feel sick to my stomach right now.

    Very well done Japan! its only the British team that should fall on there swords! can someone explain to me how on earth can Japan win 3 out of 4 matches but still go home? shurley they had enough points/goals to qualify? Beating Samoa by 25/5 points is worth a medal by its self!

    South Africa and Scotland won 3/4 matches as well. And even without the bonus points Scotland would've still progressed based on better goal difference.

    Hold your heads high brave Blossoms. You've done yourselves proud and Japan proud with your fantastic performances throughout the entire tournament. Your dedication and bravery has gained you the respect from the rugby world and I hope that this is massive boost for the popularity of the sport within Japan as well as an inspiration for other Asian nations (and even nations out of the traditional Rugby markets). I am looking forward to 2019 and I hope that next time you get the chance to play Ireland because we would love to see what would be a epic game between two sets of honourable players.

    Well played Japan. You played your hearts out till the very end and you absolutely deserved that win!

    Wishing you all the best for the rest of the tournament (until you play Ireland that is)

    And a few weeks ago the RAF had to scramble their Typhoon jets to intercept a Russian supersonic bomber that was very close to UK airspace...

    This is just a game by Putin to test their neighbours response times to such incidents.

    Absolutely pathetic China! That shocking explosion that killed 50 people only happened a few days ago and the Chinese government are concerned enough as to whether or not the latest in a long line of apologies from Japan is 'sincere enough'! You really are just making yourselves look like a bunch of children in the eyes of the rest of the world. But hey, enjoy your parade next month in the square where you killed your own people.

    Please inform me about how that mascot is sexualized in any way. The skirt isn't short and women do have a funny thing called breasts.

    I'd understand if the character looked like something from out of High School DxD. But she isn't!

    Whether the atomic bombing of Hiroshima was justified or not. I've visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and the Children of Hiroshima memorial exhibit was one of the most emotional things I've ever looked at and listened to. Being there made me wish that these weapons would never be used again. Because the devastation and anguish that they bring are truly horrible.

    How many of the sushi places will be moving to the new site? The market moving itself doesn't concern me. But my no.1 Tsukuji experience is having sushi for breakfast.

    So I'm guessing that this means that they will be pulling flights from the Japanese airports in the same fashion that Virgin Atlantic did after Delta brought a stake....

    Obviously that's sarcasm.. Though I wouldn't put it past them.

    ****1. That pesky language barrier

    I'll agree that its harder to find Japanese who are fluent in English. In Finland if you can't speak Finnish you're better off speaking English as the majority of the population can speak it. However all the major cities have English alongside the Japanese when it comes to public transportation and maps so its not as if you are faced with signs that are only in Japanese. Its also helpful to learn even just the most basic of Japanese phrases. Or is it too hard for people to say phrases like 'Arigatou Gozaimasu', 'Sumimasen', 'Konnichiwa'. Ohayou Gozaimasu', 'Konbanwa' etc etc.....

    ****2. What is this “Japan” you speak of?

    Put some effort in and do some research into Japan. I find Japan Guide to be a fantastic website for people to information on Japan.

    ****4. Getting from Point A to Point B Ever heard of Hyperdia? Again, do some research into your trip. Hyperdia will give you the transportation/lines that you need and any transfers you need, as well as the fare. I never had a problem with using transportation in Japan and this included the trains, buses, subway, trams and even ferries!

    Well all those points I made is what I did for my first ever trip to Japan. By myself I might add! And I hardly had any issues because I did research into places to visit, transportation and anything else that I tourist might need to know. I also learnt basic Japanese to help assist me along my way.

    “We should, I think, remind ourselves that wars are not made by soldiers but by governments,” he said.

    I couldn't agree more with this statement.

    Its great that these men are able to meet all this years later without any bitterness. Whilst we should never forget the events of past wars to respect the dead and to never repeat those mistakes. Everyone should find the strength to forgive and move on.
