Other than the Yurikamome Line, the Yamanote is my favorite train in Tokyo because it hits interesting stations big and small and offers everything from shopping, sightseeing and even quieter neighborhoods Always enjoyed watching assorted riders from Tokyo Station salarymen to Harajuku cosplay girls board and exit. And it's cheap as well.

Is anything in this article shocking in any way? Pimps, high school girl prostitution, older men and even police complicity. Some things in Japan never seem to change.

Three days out of the week and exactly how long after 10PM? Knowing how Japanese timetables work, it might have been 10:01 to bring about this complaint.

"I would also accept the fact that women are not welcomed there, or at least they wouldn't feel comfortable at a place like that."
@Sasoriza: You'll find groups of single women, couples and even parents with children at Hooters (and they are welcomed)

I like her. She doesn't look like a stuffy member of the royal family. The type you'd invite to a party(or a wedding).

I don't know whether marketing will be aimed at Japanese or foreigners, but if it passes, you can be sure that JTB, etc. will get on board with tour packages.

First off, and I've said it before, this is all political posturing. @Dog is correct about QE. Second, @Farmboy is also correct about the US/Japan jobs issue(which is a nonissue) So please stop the reflexive, tired, predictable comments like "What nerve they have..." NOTHING will come about from this. Nothing.

Let's not forget that the yen moved from about 85 to 102 in a relatively short period of time, so whatever the current political/economic situation, a pullback was to be expected.
