To be honest when I watched in on the news earlier, the prince was only looking at the costumes inside the facility and initially didn't ask to try on the outfit. It was the Japanese officials there who dressed him in the samurai suit, and the prince seemed rather surprised. No need to bash him because it wasn't his decision.

Well I am glad to know that this is not another story about an American servicemen behaving badly since there is a military base in Yokosuka. Kudos for trying to help out a local citizen especially when it was very late on train. It probably wasn't that many people around at that time of night to provide any assistance.

Drug trafficking is not a good idea in Bali. There is a big sign in the airport warning you about the possible of death penalty on conviction. I am quite sure they knew the risks.

I remember a guy stealing a school girl's skirt in Tsukuba last year. I wonder if it's the same guy.

Smithinjapan, I am well aware that this incident has nothing do with US tactics, but when I was watching it on the News he quickly pulled out a weapon and pointed it at many people in a threatening manner. Nobody knows if he had a real gun, but I am aware that cops in Japan have shot many individuals who used their cars as weapons. Maybe it's their policy not to shoot suspects until after someone gets injured. Anyhow, I am glad those police ninjas apprehended him and ended the siege.

I am really shocked they didn't give the order to shoot him once he started pointing that gun at people. On the news he went into a shooting stance many times with the weapon.

I hope it's safe for people to attend the festival this year, in spite of the dangerous weather condition in the Northern region of Hokkaido. Even though Sapporo is in Southern region, I would hesitate to go at this time.

Most times when you see the tarentos at the movies premiere because they did some "Voice Over" work for the Japanese audience. Usually half of the screen showings or more are dubbed in Japanese, or you have the option to watch the movie in English with Japanese subtitles.
