If they are there as a private outing then why report it in the media. If they want to go, then go but don't make it into a political issue by reporting it to the world. I have been to Yasukuni shrine but I've never been in the news.

And how gullible do they think we are. I find it hard to believe that 60% of Japanese people are for whaling.

Open the farm market? With what? Japan needs all it can get from it's homeland. The north is contaminated and the weather for this season doesn't look promising for the rest. Obama, don't you have enough. Instead of taking from Japan, how about giving!

I kind of wonder about the actual number of so called suicides. Could it be that exposure to radiation and sickness could also be the cause of some suicides or deaths? The reason I ask is, a recent article I read states that some sailors from the USS Ronald Regan have been suffering from radiation exposure. It lists their symptoms. There is a class action suit at present and thousands have join it, including Japanese. So why are Americans suffering from radiation exposure but I can't find any news about Japanese suffering from it? Japanese in the area have had exposure much long than the Americans. It seems that news I read in Japan is different from news written in other countries. Which do I trust?

Peter, the bike market has been crashing since the J-government decided to ticket every bike parked on the street, in front of your home, a store, etc. They don't provide enough parking for motorcycles especially in the cities. I was averaging 1-2 tickets a year, most of which I was at store for no more than 10 minutes. They even tried to give me a ticket in front of my home when I was washing my bike. Had to go inside get some more rags to dry it. The police have people who ride around all day looking for cars a bikes parked on the street. Very strict here now. I used to run with a touring group but most had given up riding because it's to much trouble and costly to PARK a bike.
