With all due respect ChrisGerSan, I don't think you're bringing anything new to the table there.

I think it's a miracle the Japanese haven't wiped all the bears out already. And I commend them on this. They haven't had such an easy ride elsewhere. Back in England where I'm from, we wiped them all out plus wolves a long time a go sadly. Back to the article, no mention as to what the teams will do once they locate the bear, but I for one sincerely hope they don't kill it.

Would you check out everyone complaining about the Tokyo subway it's the best damned subway in the world hands down! the Fukutoshin line is fantastic.Linking Shibuya to Sendagaya then Shinjuke San-chome. How you can come up right underneath Isetan is neat too.

obviously war is never good though. i suppose the other side of the argument is, irrespective of whether the iraq war will be seen in america as the right choice in years to come, killing a single human being is never justified.

iraq was a savage place to live, saddam threw enemies off buildings and gassed kurdish people, make no mistake, he was a more wretched man than bush. he may well have been the best out of the bunch but he certainly had a conflicting ideology to the US model, and often showed aggression to the US.america wants to police the world.america believes this will result in a more peaceful world n the future. although this seems grossly unfair, and begs the question, why should it be america? i for one would prefer the american model over the the chinese, russian, indian one etc., all nations that are key players in the power struggle. war is always bad, but we will only learn if the iraq war was a mistake many years to come.

I'm sorry, but money or no money, stashing away your Dad's corpse in a duvet is not the answer. Perhaps the man is suffering a mental illness,and if that be the case, it seems barbaric that the cops have charged him. father to the crematorium, son to counselling! job done.

I often wander if these nametags such as freeter, NEET and now SNEP are actually doing anyone any good at all, or do they just serve to alienate these people even more, or even mock them? These nametags are all well and good if they serve a purpose in turning round said unproductive social phenomena - the Government's “the Young People’s Independence and Challenge Plan” sounds promising...but why do i feel someone's just taking the pee? Herbivore man - sounds like a little green superhero weevil.

there are more house shares now because people have less money.this is also why less people are deciding to have children. i guess the younger japanese of today are far less well-off than their parent's generation. me too !lol

I think it's awesome that the Japanese don't have the same sexual hang-ups as the country that I grew up in has. However, as the writer points out, any girl thinking to enter the industry should be aware of the risks that come with such work, and of course there are some. But if mentally prepared for it, then go for it! If it's that popular a job to do, then perhaps schools should educate the girls more on the industry. job hunting tutorials.
