4th June 1989 should be commemorated too, 'Tiananmen Square massacre day' for those Chinese students who were killed.

Expect two or three more detainees in their political prison. Also, the Chinese will be blaming Japan for moving so many factories to China. They would not easily allow the Japanese to close down and move back to japan so the fault is obviously Japanese atrocities for going there in the first place. All these might sound funny but really, I expect that's how the Chinese will react to the smog.

Being an Arsenal surely does not help his popularity. Manchester United fan outnumber other fans around the world. Since he took over from Larry King, I've never bothered to watch his shows & I've watched Larry King countless times.

Sooner or later we are going to hear the survivors saying 'The boat was nowhere to be found when we surfaced'. The weather turning bad & murky water was just an excuse not to be where the boatman was supposed to be waiting.

I hope someone from some organization in Australia steps up to help 'the torpedo'. He still has a lot to contribute to Swimming Australia or maybe in some countries, in my humble opinion. It is all mind over obstacles and it can be done.

There's a very simple solution to these young international celebrities. Japan refuses entries to those with criminal records and so does a lot of other countries. His home country can disallow departure or re-entries so effectively he cannot go on tours and his performance career is not worth the charges he has accumulated. Many says that at 19yrs he is 'still a kid' but in such cases, he should be charged as an adult and suffer the same punishments as adults. I suspect the culture of the country he is from 'closes one eye' to his actions and the police are not allowed to proceed beyond a certain unseen line. Highly paid lawyers wait on the sidelines if they do so.

I can't wait to see China's reaction to this one. Will they invade the Senkaku Islands now or go to the UN to complain of Japan's racist attittude? Will there be a more 'racist' China Airlines advert to outdo Japan? Stay tune...

Good that Abe is attending the Sochi games. Too much of sucking up to the USA is like overdosing on drugs. Plus the China factor plays hard on his mind. Its better to have more friends than foes with China acting like a schoolyard bully.

China, the country whose own people put melamine in milk for profit, whose mothers allowed their children to shit and pee everywhere but the toilet in planes, shopping centres in HK, Singapore, China itself, the country with the greatest achievement of piracy of software, movies, fake eggs, thinks that possession of nuclear weapons allows it to do as it likes and people are expected to think it is Japan who are in the wrong. Everyday I read about Chinese ships going into waters off the Senkaku islands, and then they have the cheek to declare Japan is militaristic! I am not even Japanese, but just observing China's bullying ways make me hate the middle kingdom of the present so much. The present Chinese communist leadership have made the whole world hate the country. They are making the noble & proud Chinese people of the past turn in their graves. The punishment will be massive natural disasters or epidemic outbreak.

Can't help but think many younger people are getting married on a whim, like buying a new wallet and disposing of them when it gets worn and then they go looking for a new wallet. And they promise to look after the new one 'better', keeping it stuffed with money, then they go and spend the money.

What are the China Liaoning aircraft carrier, stealth aircraft & drone developments that are recently announced for?as China not increased their budget for arms purchase as reported all over the media? Are these not 'aggressive increases' in their own budget if they can criticize Japan's increase in their defense budget to counter them?
Jesus, some of these PR Chinese officials are really screwed up, I don't know to laugh or cry!

The FamilyMart conbini at Sunshine City Prince hotel is my fave stop for it's fantastic onigiri, premium sandwiches, premium fried chicken & mixed fruit yoghurt. It even has a machine for me to buy J league match tickets. The meat buns are terrific as well.

Questioning 4000 is being thorough and transparent. What would a 'police state' do? Imprison all of them without legal representation? Only less than 30 are now being charged in court after the questionings to ascertain whom the rioters were. Little India is a favorite hangout for these workers and many liquor shops sprang up. So on Sundays these workers gather & drink around here and it is no surprise many are tipsy or drunk. In fact the man who was knocked down by the bus was drunk and was asked to get of the bus. He then chased the bus and was run over the rear left wheel as the bus was turning.

North Korea is a creation of Communist China, please do not forget this fact. Instead, China is using the belligerent NK's behavior as another 'get even' ploy against Japan. No one in Asia or the rest of the world is fooled by China's rhetoric, but she continues spouting such unhelpful nonsense. I guess it is for her own people to read about.

I thought Japan is home to the best take-away bentos in konbini & depato basements? Why would anyone want or need to spice up their instant cup noodles if they can stop by to pick up a bento on the the way home? What about home delivery? The story was indeed concocted to 'spice up' what was produced in the food labs!
