    smithinjapanJUL. 18, 2014 - 03:40PM JST Another mother jumps with her kids. Why do these freaks insist their kids need to go with them? There is NO excuse! None! RIP to the little ones who never had a chance to live their lives thanks to this stupid and selfish woman.

    Please, a little compassion. Being suicidal does not make one a 'freak'. People who commit suicide are ill and cannot cope with an overwhelmingly negative and self-destructive ego. We all have that capacity, they just have it ramped up massively.

    @falseflagsteve, @Timtak

    It's got little to do with western cultural values. It's about survival and human rights. Nobody is suggesting we somehow force women into roles they are not interested in.

    The point is, there are many capable women who would love to be in leadership roles and have greater responsibility in government positions but they can't! Japanese cultural norms dictate that women are somehow not as good as men as leaders.

    And this, and similar crimes like it, is why Japan is not the 'safe' country believe it is, especially if you are a woman.

    Nice idea but isn't Switzerland a better choice? They haven't been in a war for more than 150 years.

    Because..,..got anything constructive to say?

    I think what igloobuyer is trying to say is that people are taking these unregulated and clearly dangerous drugs because they can't get the far safer marijuana. What's funny about that?

    Oh my god that is so deeply tragic. My wife is 4 moths pregnant.

    Where was her husband? I always go out with my wife when she goes anywhere to support her.

    He was clearly a gang member (his nationality is irrelevant) working for the local yakuza to have a gun and be brazen enough to walk into a cafe and kill someone.

    Mr JapanJUL. 04, 2014 - 08:43AM JST as a japanese, im feel shamed by the cruel wrongdoing of my ancestors. Gomennasai!

    Despite the fact the authenticity of these documents is unproven, the fact many Japanese military and political leaders committed heinous crimes against humanity in China is not. The attitude of this Japanese person is appropriate. Chinese should also be outraged at their governments crimes against humanity as well. Take responsibility for your own nation's behaviour.

    I would rather live in a nation where there was less theft by people in authority (political corruption) and organised crime (yakuza) than by petty street criminals. That kind of crime is far more harmful to society.

    You would probably be more sympathetic if you knew what it was like walking around with348 – 1197 ng/dl of testosterone coursing through your veins 24/7.

    This guy could have just smiled and said hello and left it at that though.

    It's a shame when relations between the two 'nations' have been so good.

    Taiwanese are positive towards Japan for complicated reasons, not and certainly not because Japan was particularly good or kind to them, far from it, it's more that compared to repressive and severe Chinese rule the Japanese were a better deal. So the best of two evils. Taiwanese never wanted Japan to take them over and we're treated as second class citizens like many of Britain's early colonies.

    Japan has an unhealthy obsession with what foreigners think of them (insecurity?). I would be much more interested in what Japanese themselves thing their country does well.

    As a gamer myself, the Japanese game industry used to be innovative but has been totally eclipsed by Europe and America - I am often blown away at the creativity coming out of these areas, especially among the indy scene - an excellent time to be a gamer, but none of it is coming from Japan any more.

    jaseinspace1JUN. 07, 2014 - 04:35AM JST This is relevant to the overall issue of blame. As I say, there's no question that Japan deserves its share, but having lived in Korea for several years, I never heard Koreans take responsibility for their part. The finger is always pointed at Japan without taking responsibility for their own part.

    Ridiculous, look, there is no atrocity committed that didn't involve the complicity, approval or involvement of people from the group that suffered from the atrocity. Some Jews helped Germans find other Jews, some willingly worked for the French, and some Koreans were involved in recruiting young women to become sex-slaves". So what?! Whose idea was the comfort women stations, who created them, who oversaw them, who managed them? Japan. Right, that's who the world should go after.

    sandiegoluvMAY. 31, 2014 - 11:33PM JST I do not agree with some of the sentiments that HIDING OUT has said but I do agree with the idea that..... Your ancient grievances are of no interest to anyone other than corrupt politicians who want to buy votes for the very cheap price of a lump of stone in a park somewhere. This action runs totally counter to the NA culture of immigration and assimilation. Especially the last part. It runs counter to immigration and assimilation. One ethnic group should not have to walk by a statue that depicts its people in such a horrible light. It should not be singled out as the villain and that is what I see South Koreans doing with these statues around the world. Just trying to shame the Japanese. I am done with this conversation. I wish all peace, love and happiness. But these kinds of statues will not provide that at all. Night all.

    Honestly, what are Japanese like yourself afraid of? Exposing to the world the truth that Japan, like many other countries (Australia, UK, US, China, Korea) was guilty of acts of great inhumanity? I know that saving face is important to Asian cultures like Japan, but it should never be at the expense of presenting the truth, no matter how painful.

    We keep hearing how 'hateful' these Korean-Americans are for wanting to erect a monument to their young women who suffered during the war. Where is the hate in that? It sound more like defensiveness and fear of truth.

    sandiegoluvMAY. 31, 2014 - 09:34PM JST Wouldn't Korean-American support for US soldiers who died in the Korean War for South Koreans be a more appropriate monument to be placed on U.S. soil? @Ossan 100% WHOLE HEARTEDLY AGREE. Of all the statues that you want to put up on US soil it is THAT ONE? Should be one of the many, many, many Americans who lost their lives fighting for your country. Not a person who was serving the enemy of the USA at the time.

    Already is one:

    It's called the Korean War Veterans Memorial and it's 2.20 acres and get's 3 million visitors a year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_War_Veterans_Memorial

    So see no harm in a small modest memorial to the victims of Korean sex slaves for Japanese soldiers, do you?

    soukaMAY. 31, 2014 - 08:58PM JST i think and as some already mentioned, building such memorials also shows a basic humanity or humane feelings to the victims especially those still living among us,,do you rather bring sad memories to the remaining victims rather than making them feel cared for, making them happy? well, i think japan should be thankful to these efforts, for (i think and many might agree) it is them, who should build and commemorates such beautiful monuments in the first place, which is quite a difficult thing to do with current domestic trends.

    Yes, why isn't Japan constructing these monuments themselves - now, That would give them massive street-cred in the International community and might even turn the tide of poor relations between Japan and it's neighbours.

    Japan has apologized--numerous times. Someone should remind the Koreans of this. If the Koreans truly wanted to fight against human trafficking, they would build monuments to human trafficking; not create more friction between a former colony and it's previous owner.

    please tell me how the monument creates friction.
