There are love hotels in Shinjuku, for example, that now offer regular hotels rooms as well as "love hotel" rooms. Friends from Asia found their hotel online, and when I went to meet them at their hotel, I realized it was a love hotel. Now you can't distinguish between the two as its appearance has been toned down.

So did no one protest when Jonathan's Restaurant, a family restaurant chain, began its foie gras and hamburger special? I guess Family Mart is a much bigger giant to challenge.

I guess to each his or her own. For me, no thank you. What you've seen on TV is just of the tip of the iceberg so we forewarned.

A key point to consider is the corruption among politicians and organized crime there that redirect funds into their own schemes to build their riches and leave people still suffering and with no aid from the donations.

Unfortunately, even their parents don't know the difference between right and wrong so starting at home wouldn't work. Maybe grandparents might be better.

A lay judge in Japan actually means a juror in the West. Her case does not have weight for her to be awarded financial compensation since she was forewarned about the murder case and what it ensued.

There is nothing wrong with living with your parents. I know of several Japanese friends -- male and female -- all independent financially who moved back home to help take care of their elderly parents. They are not maladjusted or pathetic in anyway as some portray such people to be. For this person who killed his 83-year-old mother, that is a different matter. Don't paint those living with their parents with one broad stroke of the brush. There are those who love and cherish their parents, who take them on overseas trips and so on. Just sayin'.

Why are people so negative about stars doing commercials in Japan? It's a business. Is it because they are making the money and you are not?
