Michelin star-ranked or not, all restaurants need to be vigilant in ensuring health and safety for patrons. For this restaurant, with its status as Michelin-rated, business is likely to suffer a bit.

I'm sure if he had a commuter pass and just went through the turnstile before anyone in the office noticed him, he would have been on his way in the comfort of the Yamanote Line.

Whether you call it using tax-payers' money or embezzlement, it is still stealing. He should resign and have someone with more integrity in the job, if you can find one.

Posters are quick to judge the parents. They did what they thought was best at that time. Yes, wrong decision maybe but that was their choice. I've had my parents let me out of the car when I behaved and told me to walk home. The came back to pick me up a few minutes later as Yamoto's parents did but they could not find him in their case. I think his parents as well as Yamato learned their lessons. Let them sort it out.

In efforts to attract more foreign visitors, Japan should target expats and foreigners living in Japan, especially those who live in the gateway cities of Osaka and Tokyo. They have know the language to a certain degree, can navigate their way around the local areas with fewer problems than first-time visitors, understand the Japanese culture. They can be used to post their experiences on SNS and create a buzz with their friends overseas.

A friend of mine who works in one of those homes in Tokyo for the elderly said that abuse also goes the other way too with residents abusing the staff, including biting, scratching and punching, to the point where some staff were injured and required hospitalization.

He's an awesome runner with great potential. Saw him run in the national championships and immediately recognized then he would be one to watch in the near future. Great that he was finally added to the team.

Disillusioned, it's not so much the elderly should know better having had years of experience with heat throughout their lives but that as you get older, the body doesn't cope as well as when you were younger, that they cannot produce enough sweat to cool off. Also, chronic medical problems and prescription medication can also alter their sense of temperature, high and low. So it's not that simple for them as you may believe.

Visited Paris with a group of five other Japanese media people and we had an excellent time. No one spoke French in our group but the service was excellent and food delicious. And no, we didn't wave our hands for service at all. In Nice and Cannes, it was the same, great service and food. Enjoyed France a lot.

Poor France, indeed. But not because of the burkini ban.
