    This is Okinawa, They experience at least 6-10 (out of 24-32) Typhoons every year. You'll will not see an Okinawan (not even a single one) going to roof to see how typhoon looks like. So please keep your tasteless joke to yourself.

    Notice I wrote "all Japan"? Oh and yes there are an occasional Okinawan oyaji who will go on the roof to check their tiles or toutan roofing......one got blown off last year.

    Anyhow the typhoons bring the rain to fill the lakes so people have water to drink.

    After the rainy season we had here in Okinawa this year we don't need any more water at the moment.

    Do you really think no one has looked into this problem?

    Yes....because this IS the land of closing the barn door after the horses run away, along with the rest of the farm as well.

    The guard rails should be installed on all platforms, no excuses, none. Where I live there are automatic gates, and all platforms have walls not "rails" and have been there from the time the platforms were put into service and not an after thought.

    A wall or rail would have prevented this from happening.

    And why are there no guardrails at the platform that could have prevented her from getting hit? This was a totally preventable tragedy that JR should take responsibility .

    Men and women are separated. There are probably in another room with the children.

    Sounds like a typical salaryman based Japanese family.

    Will he flip-flop and then flip-flop again if reelected?

    Not that people will remember, but Nakaima flip-flopped prior to the last election. He has been a staunch supporter of the LDP (pro-base) for most of his career. He only flipped to get elected.

    The harsh reality is that the national government is not going to relocate Futenma to anywhere outside of the prefecture, and Nakaima made a tough decision and to get the other bases, that are included to be returned to Japanese control with the move of Futenma to Henoko,, he at least did something that NO ONE else has been able to do over the past 20 years or so........

    Keep in mind that over 80% of the population of Okinawa (Okinawan's) were born AFTER WWII and only know of the war through the stories and history that the elderly have passed along to them.

    This is where it becomes imperative for the true history of what happened here remain alive in people's minds and hearts and not what Abe and his cronies and revisionists would rather have happen.

    This is just an act to hopefully stop the opposition from continuing with their plans of doing a voice analysis and locating the true culprit.

    This guy is falling on his sword for the LDP and probably getting compensated very well for it in the process too.

    Considering that it is in Japan, it's in English, and in Tokyo as well, it's about what it should be I would guess.

    They don't? Does the game, "baseball" ring a bell?

    You've obviously been watching too much Japanese pro baseball. In the MLB games are played out until there is a victor, there are NO ties in American baseball.

    However that being said, I agree with the assumption, that along with the fact that there was a time not all that long ago that kids who couldn't play American football were made to play soccer, at one time considered, at least where I am from, a sissy-sport.

    If you think for even half a second that Sidekick wrote that ONLY Japan has this problem, then you need (better) glasses or a firmer grip on the English language. You're adding words to his statement that he never wrote.

    Ahh how blind some can be.....the insinuation was obvious.

    Seems, Japanese society has a real and serious problem with ugly perverts of all kinds....

    If you think for even half a second that it's only Japan that has problems with perverts you need to get your head out of the sand.

    Want to make your point...publish the documents, plain and simple. Let the world decide.

    A separate survey by the ministry showed the jobless rate stood at 3.6% in April, unchanged from March and staying at the lowest rate in nearly seven years.

    This is just more hogwash, and it's laughable that anyone actually believes this to be true!

    This is partly why I'm leaving this country before my kid is born - too many sexual deviants and freaks with hang-ups about kids.

    Best of luck finding any place in the world that is safer overall than Japan. I have some beach front property for sale on a deserted island if you are interested.

    i am really surprised to hear such type of news about sapporo...we thought sapporo has no crime

    You really have to get your head out of the snow, seeing as how it's Hokkaido you are in. There is crime EVERYWHERE in Japan, if you think otherwise you are have to be either cut off from the world, but you are not since you post here, or blind to reality.

    Just because you dont keep up with it Japan has a lot of crime that just doesnt get reported nationally, or even locally in many cases.

    Don't be so naive.

    Another reasonable criticism of the jury system is that juries in most countries don't give reasons for their verdicts. A person is simply guilty or not guilty. If someone has been found guilty and is being sent away for a very long time, I think they deserve to know what part of their case was not believed and why.

    Fair enough, but just make sure you don't tell them the reasons before their appeals process is complete.
