    @Yubaru Then you have to ask yourself why the Japanese have proven to be completely incapable of changing them. Not able to think for themselves?

    no, anachronistic laws are common in every country. and once a law is in the books, it takes a tremendous effort to get it off the books.

    this law never stopped any of the clubs in roppongi anyways.

    even if abe is replace, the LDP will still be in charge. so cutting off one head of a twelve-headed monster really won't do much to change the basic policies of the current governement. in fact, japan will face a period of economic turbulence which will delay or even wipe out and chance of reform. which would you rather have: the devil that you do know or the devil that you don't know?

    why doesn't this article mention momii's response? and the switch to what NINE netizens think about it is shoddy "journalism" at its best

    no, i refuse to let the mom off the hook so easily. she MUST have seen the bruises and black eye on him. it was impossible to miss from the photos. and she must have known that he wasn't going to school at all since the start of this year. did she kill her son? no, but she definitely contributed to his delinquency.

    demanding an apology rarely results in an apology, especially when it involves international relations. japan will never budge on this issue when it's being demanded by other countries. onyl domestic pressure will have any attempts at success. even sympathetic japanese are sick of hearing about this issue from SK and china.

    Don't get too excited people! The cops have no evidence to support these little things actually killed him. They can only place them in the vicinity at the time of his death. Unless they can uncover some kind of forensic evidence they cannot charge these goons with his murder. Possibly, the thug's phones will give more information.

    that's what two weeks of "interrogations" are for...

    this was actually an interesting court case because the men argued that they should have been given a warning prior to the punishment, which is normal in most sexual harassment cases. And they argued that the woman never complained to them about it. And btw, i think it was just one woman, not women.

    i don't think laws punishing hate speech accomplishes anything. it just drives the hate underground where it festers and is more alluring due to its anonymity. let's identify them and shame them into stopping. let's hold bigger rallies when they rally. MLK and gandhi believe that when faced with hate, you have to show love and compassion.

    what are you guys talking about? i don't think the education board reprimanded him for teaching his students about ISIS. the problem was that he showed an unedited news program that depicted a soldier killing a man. even though it was blurred, you could still hear it. i the man should have used some common sense and skipped over that part.

    why does japan care so much about this issue? it's baffling because the outside world, except china and SK, have a very positive image of japan being a peaceful, law-abiding society. the more japan raises this issue, the more people become aware of how brutal and sociopathic japan used to be. but the key phrase is used to.

    Several high-profile public figures made statements to deny or justify the system,” the report said. “The government continued to refuse to officially use the term ‘sexual slavery,’ and to deny effective reparation to its survivors

    this latter half of this sentence is baffling to me. how did japan deny this?

    from wiki: In negotiations, the South Korean government initially demanded $364 million in compensation for Koreans forced by into labor and military service during the Japanese occupation; $200 per survivor, $1,650 per death and $2,000 per injured person.[92] In the final agreement Tokyo provided an $800 million aid and low-interest loan package over 10 years.[93] In 1994, the Japanese government set up the Asian Women's Fund (AWF) to distribute additional compensation to South Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, the Netherlands, and Indonesia.[94] Sixty one Korean, 13 Taiwanese, 211 Filipino, and 79 Dutch former comfort women were provided with a signed apology from the then prime minister Tomiichi Murayama, stating "As Prime Minister of Japan, I thus extend anew my most sincere apologies and remorse to all the women who underwent immeasurable and painful experiences and suffered incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women."[95][96] However, many former Korean comfort women rejected the compensations because of pressure from a non-government organization known as the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan,

    by propping up skymark, it gives ana more of a shield against jal. if skymark was to dissolve, then the landing slots would probably be split between ana and jal.

    the boys who did this should hang and also ryota's parents should spend a few years in prison for child neglect.

    if it was a trade union, then nishikawa is correct. but the article is a bit vague on that. corporations cannot donate money but unions can. http://www.idea.int/political-finance/country.cfm?id=114

    *They still face discrimination in education, marriage and jobs. *

    i ran it today , and the only problem i have with the security measures is that it was all directed at the runners. to be honest, i don't think terrorists are that fit to run in a marathon. and try hiding a weapon wearing short shorts.

    did you miss the 3 year prison sentence before that?

    what odd wording for this story. was she just an aquaintance or an ex-girlfriend? and a word to both sexes, don't let your partner ever take photos of you nude.

    But a 5 minute brain scan will. We identified the brain abnormalities correlated with criminal pedophiles more than a decade ago, but there simply isn't the political will to implement these scans as a requirement for work involving children.

    junk science at its best, or worst whichever way you want to look at it. there was nothing definitive about the results. as usualy, (a few) scientists merely suggested that there might be some correlation.
