    For me it was the lack of a proper fish and chip shop. But I was such as happy Brit when Malins opened in Tokyo :D

    My first and foremost thoughts have always been with the souls who lost their lives and the families and communities that were left devastated by this disaster.

    I remembered to type in 3.11 on Yahoo today and I've also been promoting it to everyone I have on social media encouraging them to do so as well.

    I remember that day clearly even though I wasn't in Japan.

    I woke up at 7am and was told to turn the news on straight away. I then watched in complete horror the shocking devastation that was being shown on my laptop by the BBC. I then spent the next few days watching the 24 hour dedicated feed by the BBC of the disaster and I just watching all the devastation and increasing death toll with complete shock and sadness, because I couldn't believe what I was witnessing to a country that I loved.

    The banners read “Distorted Japanese history textbooks and full compensation and apology for wartime sex slaves from Japanese government.”

    You had your compensation in 1965. So shut up and abide by the agreement that you wouldn't demand anymore compensation.

    WakarimasenFEB. 17, 2015 - 09:58AM JST is 1 meter a tsunami? surely just a little wave.

    2 totally different types of waves. A Tsunami occurs as a result of the movement of a high volume of water from the seabed to the sea surface. While your typical wave is generated by the wind.

    Countries in the pacific area suffered damage from tsunami waves that measured between 0.5M -1M in height after the 2011 earthquake.

    God forbid anything does happen to me. My partner already has my contact info to delete my account in the event of my death.

    Let the fool go. He'll only have himself to blame if he ends up wearing a orange jumpsuit in a video begging for the help of the government that he criticized for ''violating his freedom of speech''.

    The government have got this one right. The people who are wanting to go are either just plain stupid or they have screw lose inside their head.

    Baseball is played in Europe? Lived in Europe nearly my entire life and never heard of any European leagues or anything.

    Had flights booked for March with VA. Wasn't best impressed when I found out via Facebook that they decided to cancel the route. The fact that they didn't even bother to send out a email informing me of the cancelled route was the worst part of it all. Because they happily emailed me about a 5 minute change in departure time for a previous flight!

    BA from now on though because I refuse to pay the expensive prices that ANA charge.

    Abe would do well to issue a fresh apology.

    Why? Would you issue a fresh apology to someone who demanded one despite the fact that you've already apologised before? No, you move on and accept the apology which was already given. Something which SK and China are unable to do because they are constantly using Japan as a smokescreen to keep the citizens distracted from their eternal affairs.

    Pretty sure that Abe has already said that Japan won't backtrack on that apology. SK and China just whining like usual.

    Expensive? Come to Northern Europe.

    Parts of China can be difficult if you visit the rural areas, but in any reasonably large city someone will come over to help you out if you're having communication difficulties (often a university student). I've visited almost every country on that list (not Macau and not Vietnam), and in every country EXCEPT JAPAN the people were happy to at least TRY a bit of English and communication was achieved. I'd say that the biggest problem with Japan is the wide-spread attitude that the foreigner has to make an effort to speak Japanese and risk embarrassment, while the Japanese person doesn't have to try because they might not be perfect. It reeks of arrogance. Whatever happened to the customer being God?

    I've experienced the total opposite while in Japan. Whenever I looked lost, quite often Japanese people would come up to me and ask whether I needed help. I've also had Japanese, young and old, engaging in conversation with me.

    Growing up in Britain I was brought up to offer my seat to pregnant women or the elderly. So in the past this has caused some awkward occasions while in Japan.
