@smithinjapan....I agree with you. At times I wonder why there are people who just blog without thinking but just to say anything with out sense. Hehehehe . There is nothing wrong with people doing what their passion dictates as long as it's not against the law.

My daughter was bullied many times in her Elementary School days way, way back many moons ago.
I decided to write the Principal and told him about the trauma my daughter have been suffering.
Nothing from the Principal or het teacher was done.
Now you see why many students commit suicide due to bullying in their school.
I read one time here, that bullying is a part of growing up to be strong and cope up with society. YEAH !!!!! RIGHT !... What do you think if I will teach my children to fight them back, equipped them with things they can use to fight back and bully them back too. Har.. har..har..
So another student died cuz of bullying... who is next "kashira"
This bullying have not been given attention by JP Department of Education and School Principals....

That Law is really bias and just showed how Egoistic Japenese are. Any to be divorce woman and wanted to remarry, can easily know if she is pregnant with the simple urine pregnancy test set that can bought easily. Why wait 6 months, 3 months, 3 weeks... in just a 5 minutes more or less a woman will know the result if she is pregnant. hehe

Many suicides we always read.. And we at times quick to blame their parents.
But have we analyse that much of the suicide by young students are related to schools and school environments?

Yes we all know that. During World War II, many atrocities happened. Americans did it too like the Germans and their allies. Wonder if there was a sincere apology made by the American militaries to Japanese women.

IMHO, it's about time that the Japan enforced their own security against threats and aggressions. Change the accord sign after WW2 just to act only as a defense force. China have been acting rudely for years now. Obama's admininstration , United Nation and the likes, just keep on dilly dallying especially about islands dispute. I think Abe's move to make USA re-assure Japan about their sincere support is good. This will show USA transparency to US support.
And btw, Japan is also spending for the presence of US Military bases and not USA alone as reported.
IMHO, It's about time for Japan not only to defend themselves but also to respond to attacks. I just cannot grasp why until now the world's powerful nation cannot even lift a finger to China's abusive behavior in Asia. Economic problem maybe? USA financially neck deep indebted to China? Your guess is good as mine?

One solution since elderlies are always at home watching TV is to flash bulletins to avoid this kind of scam and to report it asap to the police. Fliers and posters about this poblems on every public buildings and areas. Is that too tasking for the police?

Problem is, stalked persons doesn't want to report it ASAP to the police for some reasons I.e, Mendoksai.. And if ever reported, the police assigned to follow and investigate are too busy reading their magazines and sipping tea in their boxes. Following it up is MENDOKSAI to them. A word uttered habit in Japan. har.. har.. har..

Fines and punishements for offenders are too linient that's why they are not scared to disobey rules and regulations. If police can imposed a very stiffed fine for illegal parkings, why cant they do so with bikers who even make noise pollutions whenever they wished.

@jerseybiy.... yes USA always mingle with what they see profitable to them. But WHY can't USA MINGLE ASAP to the ESCALATING probems between CHINA and the PHILIPPINES about the DISPUTED ISLAND at SCARBOROUGH SHOAL (Spratly Islands) Communist China is claiming their own and keep on building structures and base. That's what USA should be attending to and be aware of. Japan and Korea can settle their own problems.

OPPPSSSS... WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE MUSLIMS. If Japan will tolerate this kind of arrangement to a certain religious sect, this will cause discrimination to others. But if Japan will tolerate this type of arrangement for Musilims, then it will be proper also for Japan to build areas for other religious sect who will come to visit Japan to provide access to their churches and eateries and groceries that these different religious sect can avail according to their beliefs.
We as foreign residence in Japan follows what Japan does. If your are in Japan, do what the Japanese do. ;) No more no less.

The old school mentality of the Mayor. What a rationale to prevent road accidents caused by drunking ..
How about NAGOYA City, NAKAMURA Ward. To open a music bar, the applicants must submit the complete architectural plan, things to be used in the bar all inclusive I.e lights, wirings etc to the POLICE Dept in that area. Not to mention the real time appearance and lay out of the chairs and tables inside the bar.
I did not know Police are in Architecture and Construction expertise too for issuing permits.. I thought their main job is PEACE and ORDER?

At last USA technique worked big time after other plans failed. US Military really does not want to leave Okinawa , Japan for their own economic profit. For so many years, their maneuvering with JGov finally bear fruit with the unusual threat from China which IMO, USGov and Pentagon hidden forces got something to do with China's non stop bullying and threatening Japan in the issue of Senkaku Island ownership. Hehehe. Mmmmmm why not let USGov and Military Department handle all the expenses in building the relocation sites and be responsible in maintaining and supporting all their officials, staffs and military personnels and no single yen from JGov to shoulder. USA wanted to have a US Military Base in Okinawa so they have to pay the rent as what they do in other countries.. Let's hear their response. Hehehehe

WTF !..... Mr. Abe, open your eyes and ears. It's about time heads must roll inside or outside your cabinet. The only way you can proved your sincerity and quality of a good prime minister for the masses. No matter what elected officials and party they belong be affected. Be the famous scandal tainted LDP or whoever. Nuke power plant is not bad source of power as long as it is managed and maintain properly and not just for profiteering.
WTF is the diversion of funds intended for the victims of 3/11. Who ordered the disbursement of those funds. Fan will hit the ceiling if you really intend to investigate and look for those head departments and punish them to show the people of Japan that you really meant good as their prime minister. It's a no brainer to find those culprits. Japan is by the book and manual so it is documented I assumed.
