    And here in England we have more reported ghosties and ghoulies per square mile than any other county!

    The story sounds like a case of sour grapes to me.

    Well done to her for standing up to the people trying to vilify her. I hope she is not discouraged from continuing. Her 'superiors' bullying behaviour may well have nipped some of her possible future findings/breakthroughs well and truly in the bud.

    She may have been forced to do this farcical public apology, but at least she maintains she is right, which I think, took strength.

    > The Edo man who wanted his breath to smell as sweet as the nothings he planned on whispering to his lover would chew on a few plum blossoms before their romantic meeting.

    If only modern day salarymen would do the same before taking the train in rush hour...

    Redefining traditional marriage in any country is not a good thing.

    Because......?

    Because it involves change maybe? I wonder if 'the dawn of time' and 'creation' were also events that redefined what had traditionally gone before?

    And hasn't marriage been redefined enough in last century? What was once a union between two people that was also an agreement between families/tribes/communities for the aquisition of money, land and power has, in recent times, been redefined into a purely romantic union.

    I'd rather see peeps dressed in something they have thought about - decided to wear. Like it or loathe it, it surely beats the nauseating sight of tracksuit trousers, sweat shirts, hooded tops, etc.

    If she had a little more muscle the outfit would look better - but she's only a clothes horse after all.

    (And what is going on in the left armpit?)

    Each of the 29 mailboxes had different amounts of money, ranging from 1,000 yen to 137,000 yen,

    Bummer for the ones that got the ¥1,000 package!

    After seven years lining in Kansai I returned to the old county - and that is where I really learnt who my J-friends were - and still are.

    The realisation that people I had considered 'good' friends in Japan had really only kept me as 'gaijin-pet' was, to say the least, disappointing.

    On the other hand, there are those that I truly miss and I know (from mutual friends) that they also miss me but do not maintain the contact for reasons known only to themselves.

    But the true friends, we email & skype each other and they come to visit me in England and our common interests are the foundations of our friendship.

    Whilst in Japan I had to deal with grown men asking if they could be my friend (a statement, I informed them, that usually comes from young children, not adults, who understand that real friendships take time to develop and evolve) and people pointing at me in public saying 'look there's a foreigner' (and THAT was in Osaka - not inaka!).

    But, on the other hand, when my father died, all western & J-friends headed for the hills rather than deal with a bereaved friend. Bar one or two - one of which (J-friend) I married and now lives with me in Blighty.

    Said hubby often jokes 「外人は多いですね」(There's a lot of foreigners aren't there) because he knows the irony of that comment now he's in the west.

    There was no harm intended and just goes to show that some people will complain about anything.

    What message are all these disgruntled adults sending to these well meaning young people? I'm sure it will make them think twice about commiting any altruistic act in the future.

    I do wonder what form of prayer the complainers have indulged in, but let's hope they have done something before criticising other's good intentions!

    @Sighclops > Why should she have to change the way she lives so deadbeats like this can roam the streets and do as they please?

    Indeed, why should I change the way I live so (for example) bears can roam (for example) the forest and do as they please?

    Because it is nature. Only in the last few decades have woman had the idea they have a 'right' to walk as they please at night un-molested. Rights do not exist, but some men have an instinct to attack (as does any other animal). Why do you think that throughout history women have had chaperones or stayed indoors? For their own safety.

    I'm still here, living on this earth, un-molested & un-violeated because I do not try to go against nature. I learn to live with it accordingly. Never felt I missed out on any rights!

    Steel toe capped clogs and a sturdy umbrella were my weapons of choice on the occasions I did return home alone after a night out though...

    • when menses kick in (or rather, seep out) - and needs to be celebrated.

    I don't think I recall celebrating much the first time, nor every month in the last 30+ years since!

    there are few streetlights and very few pedestrians at that time of night, police said.

    So simple - don't walk alone if you are a woman then. You won't ever change human nature, so learn to side-step it.

    > Still, with our modern lifestyles meaning less time working the fields under a blazing sun and more time indoors with the air conditioner blowing and a cold drink from the fridge, an increasing number of people don’t see the point in sending these cards.

    I doubt that those "working the fields under a blazing sun" had the means to send cards anyway! Surely only a pursuit of the aristocracy.

    Aurvakis: Mochi is made from pounded rice flour and is like marshmallow in consistency. Only stickier and harder to bite. It's in larger chunks served in a soup, so if it starts to slip down it's very hard to stop!
