Really? Why is everything in Japan connected to sex? Seriously, I want to see a dad explain those words to his little daughter.

Hike smart people. 1,800 meters is not very high. Being a seasoned hiker, I must say that really wish people would take Mother Nature more seriously. Too many deaths up in the mountains this year. Please be careful and enjoy and respect the beauty she has given us.

I guess polls are only fairly conducted when they go in his favor. Kinda makes you wonder about the polling system in Japan.

Yeah right! Of course it would be someone that is always in the public eye, rich and famous. Love to see what her son is like 10 years later.

First, Suicide awareness only one month in a year? Second, correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't a Help Line phone number be more effective? I'm sure everyone one knows the problem, I believe people are looking for a solution. Really now, reminding people of their problems on the platform of a train/subway station without any advice? It's like they're saying we know your problemsn. Turn around and there's the solution.

Of course that have to reject it. By accepting it, they'll be acknowledging that the government is wrong and that a problem actually exists.

We've got our safety and well being in the hands of idiots. Seriously, who is running this circus? What is happening to Japan? It seems to be falling apart bit by bit.

So exactly why do they need to increase taxes to cover the recovery costs?

So the leaks are not accidental. This is TEPCOs way of making more space. As long as they are not penalized it'll continue to happen..........oh wait, isn't Abe's crew now in control of TEPCO?

For those of you who are not familiar with that station, it is packed at 7pm on a Friday. Why no one helped catch the loser is beyond me.

120 tons "may" have leaked? It did or it didn't. TEPCO, man up to your mistakes. Or was it a mistake? The penalty for riding a bicycle through a red light has been clearly spelt out. What's the penalty for dumping 120 tons of contaminated water. LDP, the party is over. Start doing your job.

Sounds like a case of 'Short Term Sacrifice, Long Term Gain' . Apologize today to build tomorrow. I'm sorry but I just can't see TEPCO apologizing and accepting blame for one of the worst disasters in history without an agenda. Best I can say is keep reading JT. I find it very interesting how our comments become actual news. Are JT readers psychic?
