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.

Nowadays videocams, located near the rearview mirrors, are used in taxis. Hopefully, there was one that could lead to some information on this sad crime.

Why no mention of the Japanese in the body of the story, just only in the headline? Good journalism!

I guess it did not do its homework to see the environment in which they would be operating, including the restrictions by the airports.
As for Virgin, it was just cutting its losses early.

The power of the Old Boys Network within the party is showing how to get rid of these women, partly because they were overlooked for cushy posts as Ministers. How many more to go? Just watch how it unfolds in the next few months!

Tiffanny, Gucci, Coach and LV were all in Shinjuku at one time or another, then closed and now are reappearing, probably due to the stronger yen, new demand from inbound travelers, etc. For Chinese, they want the real thing, not the knock offs sold in China.

felguard, don't you have to buy a plan with one of the Japanese providers to be able to get the phone? If so, then the Chinese can't just buy and resell as you said.
