    No, no it's more that actually you can't read properly."

    Oh really?

    Well she joins the long list of women being regularly murdered by men in this country.

    Seems to me you can't read properly, this sentence suggests the "zombie" theory.

    She joins the long the of women, who have been murdered, by men in the country. Something that happens quite regularly.

    There have been a number of fireworks shows that I have seen that should never have gone off in the first place, the winds were way too strong and in another case the crowds were too close to the action.

    These people are lucky it wasnt worse.

    Long list? I thought one could only get murdered once? And btw, if you think that Japan has a penchant for murdering women you really need to broaden your news sources and find out what's going on in the rest of the world.

    Shame on posters for being so judgemental.

    Shame on you for shaming those that are being judgmental!

    Those pool players aren't thinking urine-fest, just having some fun

    Please feel to swim in my septic tank, it's pretty much the same thing.

    Quite disgusting, but nothing that should be banned, as no one is hurt in the making of it.

    Really? Tell that to the next child that gets molested because some pervert addicted to these manga decide to live out their fantasy and take it to the next level.

    People ARE affected by what they see, and especially those that are possibly unbalanced and can not discern between fantasy (manga) and reality.

    The CHILD and society gets hurt. Keeping one's head in the sand and failing to accept that there is a correlation is wrong.

    Unless one has been in a homeless situation negative comments do not apply. There are no shelters in Japan for those in need, and the urban homeless issue is just beginning for Japan. It is possible they had all intentions in paying but the circumstances behind them being homeless is not shared by the media. That goes along away in public opinion and those willing to step up to offer help vs criticism.

    Where does the article say they were homeless? Just because they have no "fixed" address or registered occupations does not mean they are unemployed nor can it be assumed homeless.

    However for discussion purposes here, let's say they are in fact homeless, are you willing for forgive someone freed-loading off a for profit business? Good intentions? Let's assume they did have them, then why not come clean with the hotel and offer to barter for their bill? Work it off? Be honest and explain their situation and keep the cops out of it "maybe".

    They are responsible for their crime, and yes it is a crime, but they could have done something to alleviate the problem sooner.

    They are homeless, it's either this or the streets. You can't blame them for staying put in the hotel, even though they had no money.

    Could they come and stay with you? Same thing in a manner of speaking.

    I am only saying it is wrong to conclude as if all Japan inc was corrupt.

    Middle to small sized corporations, I would agree are not corrupt. However, in your eyes just what is Japan Inc? How far or what corporations do you include in it?

    If the government is included, well Japan Inc is corrupt, large "zaibatsu" , consider these...The Long-term credit bank, Olympus, Yamaichi Securities, Kanebo, Livedoor (Horie), and others as well.

    Japan Inc needs a housecleaning, starting with the CEO/PM Abe.

    The hotel said it had requested the couple many times to pay their bill but they kept putting it off.

    Japanese hospitality in action, wait until it gets too far before doing anything about it. The hotel should have kicked them out weeks earlier.

    Well, now if regulators in Japan would finally understand the difference, things might change. Problem is that many of the manga writers themselves are women, and until women understand that it's them that are being degraded and "used" things will hardly change....in my humble opinion here.

    Shareholders could become more aware and active in demanding better management. They hold a lot of power if they choose to exercise it. Maybe start with educating them!

    Note...shareholders in Japan hold little if any power over corporate management.

    What part of this statement is fair? There is no evidence that Toshiba's case represents Japan Inc.

    If Toshiba is not a representative of Japan Inc then pray tell what company is? One has to be either blind or ignorant to not realize this, so which is it you are, the former or the latter?

    60% of large companies have had accounting scandals in their History. From Microsoft to Samsung

    And what do Microsoft and Samsung have to do with oversight by Japanese regulators?

    Exposes flaws? Give me a break, those so called "flaws" have been around for decades, take a look at all the other corporate misdeeds that have occurred and tell me otherwise.

    Government and business here have been sodomizing the public for years, it's just now that "news" is catching up!

    Winds of almost 160 kilometers per hour were recorded early Saturday in remote islands west of Naha,

    No this is inaccurate, the Amami islands , and Yoron, got hit with the strongest winds, Amamiand Yoron are a part of Kagoshima, and those islands are north-east of Naha. The islands west of Naha, Kerema Islands, got little of anything from this storm. Even Iheya, Izena, and Ie Island are north of Naha.

    It's gonna be hard to promote Okinawa as an international destination when typhoons barge thru so often.

    If you really think this way you should know that this isnt just something that happened THIS year. It's a really occurrence and for your information Okinawa has over 7 Million visitors (tourists) per year, AND this past year was the first time that nearly 1 million of those tourists came from overseas.

    Typhoons are seasonal, and it isnt just Okinawa that gets them.
