    Maybe they will take that supply of milk to produce extra butter because of the shortage in Japan.

    I go every year in early September to avoid the big crowds and the summer rush. By then it's nice and clean on the trails, and it's a more relaxing hike. The experience I have is friendly and courteous hikers at that time. I guess the Wi-Fi is OK if you want to share instant moments online at the top with your love ones who didn't join you on the hike.

    As a resident of Japan and a black man from the state of South Carolina, I urge my fellow lawmakers back home to vote YES to take down the flag to show respect for the fallen nine worshipers and place it in a museum. After reading countless posts and comments from several Pro Confederate Professors, there seems to be many contradictions about the history to the flag including the name. There needs to a place to teach the history of the flag so we can all learn. A museum should fix that problem.

    There are a couple of coin launderettes in my neighborhood. Whenever I walk by them, I always take a peak through the window to see if there are any guys inside trying to steal underwear.

    When fear is on the rise, so are the profits.

    I saw this special event where they were planting the rice field on the News. I can't wait to see the outcome when the rice is fully grown.

    This gunman was arrested in March on drug charges. Mental problems? No. This kid was full of hate and he acted upon it. He is a full grown domestic terrorist. He said "I have to do it. You rape our women, and you’re taking over our country" recounted by one of the survivors.

    He also posed for a Facebook photo wearing a black jacket adorned with the South African flag flown during the apartheid era and a second patch bearing the flag of Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. Both patches are symbols of white supremacy groups.

    My heart goes out to the family friends of the victims of the senseless tragedy. This happened in my home state of South Carolina, and we lost a great spiritual leader and State Senator, Mr. Pinckney. My daughter goes to school there, and I can't imagine myself if something bad happens to her while I am in Japan (scares me to death to even think about it). But Charleston is descent, caring, and strong community, and they will get through this selfish act of hatred. I am glad that they just caught him now, and hope they prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

    This circus is going to need a bigger tent because I think the clown car will not longer fit inside.

    3:30 am at this time of year is early morning time, and not in the middle of the night because the sun rises at 4 am. He was out at the crack of dawn in Japan.

    I am assuming that they are talking about the Live Action movie instead of the anime version. That makes no sense because Jurassic World made 100 million dollars over the weekend in China and those dinosaurs ate a lot of people. What's the difference between man-eating dinosaurs and naked man-eating giants with no genitalia?

    Wolpack, Exile is not Johnny's Entertainment, and they are the original group in Japan who shows off their muscles and body physique with actual talent. As far as them being called pretenders, they actually have at least 3 members in the organization who are African American. So I guess they don't have to pretend to do anything.

    he fell asleep on the train on the Tokyu Denentoshi Line at around 11 p.m. and woke up at the end of the line at Chuo-Rinkan Station in Yamato City, Kanagawa Prefecture, after missing his station

    We all know what that means. It's a typical train ride for salarymen who over drinks.

    dctokyo202, that couple is not watching the festival because they participate in the actual Matsuri. They carry the shrine. It looks like it's already finished.

    It's not regular glass that can be easily broken with simple objects, unless you plan to drop a jackhammer on it. The floor is made of toughen glass that's engineered to take a huge amount of weight and punishment. Even if the floor cracks you can't fall through it. The Tokyo Tower website say it's OK to jump on it.

    Whenever I go to Tokyo Tower I get on the glass, and then I jump up and down. I enjoy the look on everyone faces when I do that.

    I never waste my time bashing AKB because I am not in the top music buying demographic in Japan. And through my experience of the last 8 years here, it's been all the women and children who sing AKB songs when I go to karaoke. If it makes them happy, what's the problem? The world is still spinning.
