    Absolutely. If you can't respect yourself, how can you expect your children to respect you? However, I doubt they would have bowed if I, a gaijin, was the thug.

    So did these other people stay within their own prefectures or did they go to Tokyo? I'm wondering why they're not giving us any more information?

    I recently stumbled upon an article about a guy called Mike Waudby. Google that name to read about a morbidly obese person who got off his lazy backside and actually did some exercise.

    turbostat:

    Nice try but this is about an incident in Japan created by pieces of scum who happen to be Japanese and with victims who happen to be Japanese. And the video you put a link to - the first air stewardess certainly wasn't putting up with any sh!t from the customer.

    Now, what I'd like to see is an apology from these gangster wannabes (mother and daughter included) and a big slap on their heads, all posted on youtube.

    Wow, I had no idea Keihin-Tohoku line was at the top. I used to commute on that line (though never between Ueno and Okachimachi). In fact, I used to go in the opposite direction to most commuters. It was bliss sometimes sitting there in a nearly empty carriage, watching all the people crowded into the train next to me, with faces pushed right next to the doors!

    How about total press freedoms here in Japan too?! Practically every single Japanese newspaper here looks totally similar on the front cover (except for Sankei Shinbun which has an extra anti-China or anti-Korean or anti-foreign artcile on the front as a bonus). You report something unsavoury and you're ostracized. Result - every reporter reports the same stuff spoon-fed to them by the authorities.

    I don't know what the situation is like in Korea (and I don't care since I don't live there), but the situation here is nothing to brag about.

    inakarob:

    . I can also pretty much promise next to know (SIC) one who voted has visited all the countries in the poll,

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I have and I bet there are plenty who have too! And Taiwan too! However, I haven't tried the high speed rail in Korea or Taiwan yet. I would vote Japan for the best in terms of comfort. As for tech, not sure, since I don't know anything about Germany or France's technology.

    bass4funk:

    Is this a trick question.

    Yes it is. It's designed to make you forget that the most voted one also happens to be the most expensive. Japan was an innovator, but times have changed and other countries have caught up. For the similar speeds and comfort, other trains cost a fraction of the Shinkansen which is why I never travel on it unless it's business and I don't need to pay myself (and it's always a pleasure to travel on it for journeys which are not too long).

    I once took the high speed rail from Shanghai to the next city (about 40 minutes) away. With the amount I spent, I could just about get from Tokyo to Shinagawa on the Shinkansen.,

    Wasn't she one of the politicians who opposed women from having the choice of sticking with their maiden names after marrying and not having to adopt their husbands' names? A woman opposed to the freedoms of other women? And isn't she that politician with horrible brown teeth?

    ossan:

    Funny how the only two countries that whine about shrine visits are not on the list of Allies. Nationalist China (Taiwan) does not bother with this nonsense

    There were plenty of Taiwanese unhappy with the shrine, especially the Taiwanese aborigines who we all know were treated terribly by the Japanese invaders. Some wanted to have their relatives' names removed from the shrine but were outright rejected.

    The last time I travelled on a plane, I was surprised they got rid of the remote control. They had a touch screen panel and were expecting passengers to use it to play games - not only is your arm going to get tired, the passenger in front is going to get annoyed with all that poking.

    Reclining the seat doesn't help me one bit - I can never sleep on the plane. What would help is if they put more effort into the design of the seat, especially the head rest. I find myself in a hunchback position, because the headrest juts out.

    I was quite shocked when I got their email earlier this week. One of the replacement flights is a London to Detroit route!!! Come one, Detroit is bankrupt!!! Replacing Tokyo with Detroit???!! I just hope that when Virgin leaves Japan, ANA reduces their prices down to Virgin's level, because I really don't want to travel with BA.

    Harihuka:

    I've already got tickets paid for

    You've already booked flights for after Jan next year?

    Tigers:

    and they are always full at popular times and they are always expensive?

    I agree. The only time it was nearly empty (and relaxing) was when I travelled on 24th December, otherwise it's always been crowded when I'm there.

    This comes on top of Citibank leaving Japan. Not perfect, but one of the more convenient banks in Japan with branches in many other countries. Very innovative when it started telephone and internet banking, Saturday banking, cheap or free overseas transfers, 24hr ATM free service in Japan, while being singled out by the bullying authorities.

    Are these signs that Japan isn't such a big player in the world anymore? Which big foreign company is next to leave Japan, I wonder?

    To the person who wondered what was wrong as long the rich boy could provide for the kids: Being a parent does not mean throwing cash at the babies' faces. You're going to have to spend time with each baby - does he have enough of that? After all, he was hoping for a 1000 kids or so.

    Forget about the babies for a moment. I heard that he was in possession of TEN passports!!!! Japan doesn't allow dual citizenship for those above a certain age, let alone decuple citizenship. This alone needs looking into.

    So Thailand wants this man? Let's see whether Japan is willing to cooperate.

    Kolohe:

    The only thing that stopped me from writing his name and uploading links to photos of his face is the thought of censorship on JT. I am surprised. But yes, you can find details about him on Japanese forums. Do the Japanese media really think that even the Japanese don't know how to find out about these things.

    Let's see if money wins in the end.

    Don't tell me, Ryukuans and the Ryukyuan languages don't exist anymore either. In fact, everyone living in Japan is Wajin. Isn't that right, Kaneko?

    Posted in: Even if there are Ainu, they are no more than Japanese who are descended from Ainu. All they do is insist relentlessly on exercising their rights. It's absurd, and I can't explain it to the taxpayers.

    And like other oyaji gyagu - not cool or funny. Eyes rolling, in fact.

    Oh come on, we all know his name and what he looks like. The media in the rest of the world hasn't held back so why has the Japanese media? Privacy, you say? Had this been a non-Japanese, his face would have been plastered everywhere in Japan. This is just like the case of the Japanese woman who kidnapped her daughter from her father who had custody and got caught in Hawaii. And how did he make it back to Japan? The media certainly kept it quiet.

    At the moment, he may not have done anything illegal, but I just think it's morally wrong to be having so many babies. Wasn't he intending to have 10 a year? Or was it 100 a year? As Tahoochi says, something stinks here. This guy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and thinks he can do as he pleases without consequences.

    Thailand’s military government, which took power in May, has given preliminary approval for a draft law to make commercial surrogacy a criminal offense.

    Yeah, thanks to this selfish excuse of a 'father'. Regulate it, yes, but I don't believe it should be made illegal.

    You get murderers and kidnappers put on the Interpol list. Why the heck was he put on the list? Making a mountain out of a molehill.

    I'm surprised the prosecutors couldn't fabricate any evidence. Or have they learnt their lesson after the Nepalese guy and the other Japanese 'criminals'. Getting cold feet now?

    Tessa:

    Why not just advise her to sell a kidney, and be done with it?

    Because once that kidney's sold, it's gone for good. Your womb will still be with you after your pregnancy.

    cleo:

    but with so many children and babies in children's homes and orphanages around the world literally crying out for someone to take them home and love them, I don't see the point.

    I do agree that people should think about adoption more as there are so many unwanted children. But the Japanese, unlike say the Chinese and many in the west, are not into adoption.

    I don't think Russia would be at the top of the list, but nonetheless it should have been included. And I noticed USA was in the list - despite it being located nowhere near East Asia. That says a lot!

    tinawatanabe:

    What Japan did was not the worst. Study history.

    You're right. There are lots worse than forcing women into prostitution, men into slavery, bayonetting live people, doing autopsies on people still fully conscious, subjecting people to chemical and biological toxins, beheading people, raping women and children, etc. Maybe you'd like to share some examples of all things worse than that.

    stormcrow:

    If the pope were visiting Nagasaki or Hiroshima and comforting the people there, you'd be totally silent, I bet.

    Furthermore, the past few generations of Japanese born after WWII had absolutely nothing to do with the atrocities committed during those awful years. It is history now and should be regarded as such, not like something that's still going on today.

    As long as you get people like Ishihara, Tamogami, Abe and Hashimoto trying to worm their way out of one big nasty episode in East Asian history, it will always be in the news. The more they try to deny what happened, the more it stays with us. And yes, I do feel sorry for most Japanese - they deserve better than these lying politicians.
