Maximum respect. Japan's David against any Goliath. Sad and shocking news that he had to go so young. Sympathies to his family.

Some good points above. My bed has enough of a frame to hold a falling ceiling. After Kumamoto I restarted the old habit of not pulling the bath plug at night.
Keys, passports, credit cards, cash, spare charged phone batteries, matches/lighter, a multi-tool and a whistle in a grab bag. (A sub bag in the car?)
A few old-fashioned pyrethrum mosquito coils ('katori senko') could stop you getting bitten to death too in this hotter half of the year.

Why should buns change their mark, or Atami change their city symbol? Nothing to do with helping foreigners find a hot tub.
Absolutely no reason at all for them to fall into line here, except perhaps some silly anal bureaucrat who may yet put in an unwanted appearance.

Only the one Yasukuni charge, then?
Sounds like a plea bargain, or something political.

Just flew the route between Japan, Korea and the UK. I was shocked to see a gentleman opening a thermos flask and drinking hot tea shortly after take-off. How the hell did he get that through what to me looked like tough security in Seoul?

No more that famous breathing space until October.
Will the EU put immediate pressure on Theresa May to invoke Article 50, and will she then appoint someone hard-working like David Cameron to head the negotiating team?

Once the tittle-tattle, finger-pointing, tut tutting and shaking of heads at every juicy little detail subsided, and then some other newer scandal caught people's attention, she is pretty much free to float up to the surface again.
I hope everyone enjoyed their frenzied bashing spree, although I suspect they have already forgotten it and learnt nothing in the process.

Sour grapes, folks.
Expensive, I grant, but labour intensive in the extreme, and seriously delicious to boot. If you can't afford them please don't dismiss them as 'not tasty at all'.

Quote: "Dai Bingguo, Beijing’s former state councillor, dismissed the court ruling as “nothing more than a piece of paper,” but said there was an “urgent priority” to stop the case."
OK, the court ruling has not actually taken place yet, but even if the vote goes China's way, it's still a worthless scrap of paper, right?

Playing straight into the hands of the Bangladesh government, who refuse to admit there is any IS presence in the country. Even the Bangladesh government was taken totally by surprise, so how would the US be able to confirm anything?

WA4TKG "Was it a Mainland "Fishing Boat" ? Hmmm."
Good question. The Taiwan authorities said the whole trajectory finished their side of the half-way demarkation line between Taiwan and the mainland, which both sides have generally agreed not to cross over. If so, then a mainland fishing/surveillance boat on the wrong side of the line would certainly complicate matters.
A Taiwanese fishing boat, a survellance fishing boat? Yes, but would an expended missile just happen to fall onto a fishing boat. Unlikely as Smith pointed ouut above. It must have locked onto a target for whatever reason, but since there is no mention of the missile having exploded, nor of the ship having sunk, then perhaps it had an unarmed warhead.
Messy affair. And often this is how conflicts break out.
