    the suspect, identified as Daisuke Ishida, approached the boy from behind as he was returning home

    not sure if stranger danger really applies here since he was attacked from behind.

    so the east asians are whingeing that they can't beat africans who emigrate to another country? well, there's an easy solution to that, and that is to allow more immigration into your countries. east asians are some of the most homogenous countries in the world. open up your borders and reap many of the benefits of a multicultural society.

    does this author live in japan or FOB? because he or she is true clueless as to why this phenomenon happens. it's not the "handshake" events but the ability to "vote" for your favorite idol that ramps up CD sales. journalism isn't what it used to be...

    like google glasses, i don't see this device catching on because not everyone wants to wear glasses. regardless of how thin they get, for a majority of people wearing glasses just isn't cool. and with glasses easy to break, there's just not enough selling points.

    Push it to 120, anyone in export will love it, the rest will be squeezed, but strong exports means more jobs and more cash flowing into the country.

    the biggest problem is that japan is still importing massive amounts of gas and oil due to the shutdown of nuclear reactors. with a correspondingly massive trade deficit, this will cripple the economy.

    what the geezer doing out at 5 in the morn? some bicylists, young and old, are so reckless; they ride in the opposite direction of traffic, ride practically in the middle of the road or swerve wildly. to tell you the truth, i'm surprised there aren't more accidents involving bikes.

    the last eruption was over 20 years ago. so people should just permanently stay off the mountain? i think you have a higher chance of getting hit by a car while walking to the eki than you do of being killed by a volcano.

    Since the batteries and battery systems were designed and made in Japan, it is no surprise that the report found no fault.

    so USTSB are also "in" on it? since they too have also been unable to pinpoint the exact cause of the battery failure. puh-lease.

    this is one of the few times where people should turn a blind eye while the police "question" him for several weeks.

    well considering that the guys who bought the shoes were probably very nerdy and scared, it wouldn't be so hard for the cops to intimidate them into "voluntarily" giving them the shoes. civil rights trampled for a good cause? it's a toss up.

    Obviously knowing that he could face capital punishment in Japan didn't stop him

    the key word there is "punishment." executing him is his punishment for committing such a horrific act. each society has its own rules on how to punish murderers. the death penalty serves as not only a deterrent but also as an act of retribution for either the family or society. for cases like these, i'm totally for executing the animal.

    should they just call these the chinese games? china will dominate these asian games until state-sponsored athletes become a thing of the past. but that ain't gonna happen anytime soon.

    Another misnomer! The rooftop of every apartment building and commercial building is ample space to supply huge amounts of solar energy. Also, geothermal energy does not require deep drilling in japan nor is it a huge earthquake risk. Every onsen in Japan can generate electricity. Do onsens create earthquakes? I don't think so.

    that is simply not economical and feasible to place solar panels on all houses and buildings. a large building wouldn't even be able to run the AC on one floor with solar panels on the roof.

    you're talking about supplying warm water for onsens. we're talking about supplying a major source of energy for whole cities. that would require a massive geothermal plant which would need to be drilled deep into the earth, much like fracking.

    i think solar is a big waste of money for an island nation. it's too unrealiable and current panels are still inefficient.

    i was studying for a year in England when they hit it really big (1995) and loved their music as a result. so i'm a bit biased when i say that they are no one in heck a one-hit-wonder. and if you hate the band because of their drug use then you should stop listening to almost all rock bands from the 1960s to the present day. maybe church music is more up your alley?

    who uses rakuten edy?!?! the problem with japan is that there are actually too many payment systems, most of which use IC chips. so if you lose your card or something, you basically lost all the money on it. but with apple and NFC, the ID sensor will prevent people from using your phone and abusing the NFC. that's the biggest advantage that apple has, and i see this will be the difference maker. japan will def come around to this.

    Japan has the 3rd largest reserves of geothermal energy in the world, great amounts of sunshine

    the biggest problem with geothermal is the risk of earthquakes. digging so deep into the earth can potentially cause more earthquakes and also surface subsidence. Also, japan may be too mountainous to effectively build and tranport geothermal energy.

    sunshine isn't the problem. it's the vast amount of land required to make solar energy viable. also, at most it only produces energy for 12 hours a day and no possiblity of storing the unused energy created.

    it was funny this morning seeing all the oyajis and obasans on every street corner "assisting" people across the crosswalk.. the only benefit of this is that they are out of their cars and couldn't harm anyone with their driving.
