When I first got here, my wife and her Japanese friends used to believe anything and everything a plumber, doctor, lawyer, or even the airhead at the local Autobacs said about anything. That situation has been largely remedied over the years by explaining to and showing them that there are rip-off artists in every country, even here in 'safety' Japan. You have to use common sense and critical thinking.

Maybe a camera caught what happened and we'll be able to find out the truth. RIP.

Karaoke absolutely blows. Don't see the allure of tone-deaf people screwing up songs I don't like in the first place. One of the world's worst inventions.

Hey Zushi, I didn't miss you at all. Miura was cool. Tsujido was pretty fun and even though Shirahama was far, it was fantastic! They accepted the loud music, tattooed people and trash. They even had a truck which came by late in the evening to separate and haul away the trash. Not to mention the eye candy, which was RIDICULOUS!

A knifeman? Surely someone could have written this a little better. RIP to the dead and speedy recovery to the wounded. This type of thing could happen anywhere.

It's not always about how long they have to work or when they started a particular shift. Sometimes they may already be in a sleep-deprived condition when they report to the office.

Got him! There is never a valid reason to run and you'll likely get caught anyway.

Semperfi, you are confusing the country vs. the general population. Japan as a nation contributes a lot to relief programs but the average citizen does not. I have never seen one of my Japanese friends or associates put money in the boxes in the convenience stores, talk about sending aid to the poor, or sponsoring a child from a poor country, etc. Most of them talk about how 'poor' they are without even realizing they are some of the richest people on the planet.

Why not just go the whole way and pay for your own defense entirely? Then we won't have to continually hear or read rehashed stories about the 'burden' being placed on Okinawa, U.S. military crime, etc. I'm all for it.

There are still people on the planet, that's why. When ALL people are gone, that's when war will cease. Until then, there will be no real 'peace on earth.'
