I thought camcorders went the way of the dodo years ago.

Access, cost and time are major factors limiting where one can visit. Koyasan does beat most of the places on that list. The Hongu Taisha and the whole Kumano Kodo area in Wakayama are also well worth seeing.

Stand at the very edge of the Grand Canyon in a spot where you can look all the way down and there's no rope or railing to protect you. What a rush! Have to admit, I did this over 20 years ago so it may be hard to find a spot like that on the beaten path now.

Eighty-three and still can't control your rage? Well, he's not too old for prison, either. RIP to the lady. Pretty sad.

Nandakandamanda, do you realize that you just compared a country (Japan) to a continent (Europe)? As for this being national news, it does show how safe Japan is but the coverage of crime here is nowhere near as comprehensive as in most western countries.

I loved the old Omotesando apartments. They gave the place an old-world feel.

Reign? A third-round win is hardly that. Let the thumbs downs rain on me.

Those old acts were the best! I saw most of their old movies and shows long after they had retired or died but they were still funny even then (and now). Include Jerry Lewis, Laugh-In, Benny Hill and W.C. Fields in the lot.

Big problem in my area. Most pet owners here, it seems, don't give a s*it. Pun intended.

Wow, only one comment! Where did this kid's supporters go? Everyone expected him to just walk up and go under ten seconds, no sweat. It doesn't work that way. Just because he ran 10.01 the other day doesn't mean his time is going to get better with every race. It's not linear and the conditions and his racing needs to be almost perfect for him to have a chance. He's only seventeen, with a great upside so he should learn from the experience. The whole country put unrealistic expectations on him and now everyone is disappointed. Congratulations to him and to the WINNER, Mike Rodgers of the U.S.A.

Are the grounds (the sky over the archery area) fully enclosed with protective mesh, etc? If not, then the owners are negligent and this was bound to happen sooner or later.

To say that anyone is good at something only due to their race is ridiculous.

In Japan, I usually hesitate to get involved. If I knew the neighbors, I would probably at least bang on the door to see if someone needs help and possibly call the cops.
