    Aerial footage showed dozens of police officers swarming over the roof and helipad of the modern, glass-facade building, with the drone covered by a blue tarpaulin.

    Was the footage taken by a drone?

    The issue at hand is children being raised by a father and mother figure.

    No, the issue at hand is and should be children being raised in a happy, healthy and safe environment.

    Thumbs down away, but it was an insensitive and baseless comment. No one here has shown any reason to believe the Princess Masako's absence was anything other than her own choice.

    So, what did the mice get up to for play when the cats were away? A listen to your favorite music? A sleep in? A stroll in the garden? Or better yet, an incognito sojourn outside the palace gates where you could simply enjoy being around everyday people?

    Whatever it was that she did, I hope she enjoyed herself.

    And speaking of him (reverently), is that a hair color change from his former grey shag?

    It certainly looks like that may be the case. The Prince's hair does like much darker than I've seen in previous photos.

    The Reigning Emperor and Empress look marvelous.

    Yes, they certainly do!

    What a pity that Masako wasn't allowed out of her prison to take part. How stressful could it be for her to play follow the leader, smile and shake hands with a few people.

    Personally, I find your comment both baseless and insensitive. Whatever makes you suggest that she was not allowed to participate? Perhaps she was under the weather or she felt like she did not want to participate. In case you are unaware, her husband,Crown Prince Naruhito, has been extremely supportive of her.

    Manga are read in private.

    It seems like you have not had a chance to ride on a train or a subway car in Japan.

    Exactly. If animals are to be used as a role model,

    I don't believe anyone is advocating that animals should be used a role models. I believe the comments about homosexuality occuring in the wild is in answer to those suggesting it is unnatural.

    Unthinkable to many, certainly - but gay marriage was equally unthinkable 20-30 years ago

    It was not that long ago that to many mixed race marriage was also unthinkable. Thankfully, those that thought that way were proven incorrect.

    These costume-play idiots standing in the picture have nothing to do with the shrine.

    They think they have something to do with the shrine.

    The hint would be in the words "almost all", not "almost all ".

    Maybe I am the only one, but I do not get your 'hint'. The words in both quotes are the same.

    Japan Today, thank you for providing this article. The stories within provide valuable insight into the perpectives of each side during the war and how the two sides have come to trust each other and start anew. Reading this gives me hope that the future will see greater understanding in the world. These are stories that need to be told and heard.

    but I've never heard of animals rejecting sexual activity with their own sex in favor of a whole life of homosexual behavior. If there is, let me know, but so far I haven't heard of it.

    I'm kind of surprised you haven't heard of it as they are exactly the same thing.

    The mother and son evidently fought over the money to pay for an internet contract. It does not appear that the boy had entered into the contract on his own.

    SmithinJapan,

    Couldn't agree with you more. Hopefully they DO make it legal everywhere in the near future. It's high-time they do.

    Absolutely!

    he stabbed his 40-year-old mother in the back

    He is a backstabber all its interpretations and meanings.

    When this mother was changing his diapers, I am sure she never imagined that little baby would ever do this to her.

    He should be, but probably will not be, ashamed of himself.

    I hope she recovers from both the physical and emotional scars of being harmed by the very child she gave birth to.

    What makes it right?

    What makes it wrong?

    When it comes to raising kids, who is going to be called "dad" and "mum"?

    ? That is what you are most worried about?

    When it comes to raising kids, a healthy, happy environment is best.

    I am opposed to discrimination against gays and homosexuals, but as for marriage that's a whole different issue

    I find the fact that you do not see the irony of your comment as equally fascinating as the actual irony of your comment.

    Gender is nothing more than a social construction.

    I don't know about that. Gender is a natural occuring phenomenon in all its forms. It is the constrictions that are needlessly and unnaturally placed upon them that are the social constructions.

    can they BOTH be brides?

    Yes, they already are. I see no reason why they should not be able to.

    Nice looking couple.

    It would be nice if it were legal for them for real.

    Live and let live.

    The lesson is to not let leaders like this rise to the top.

    Weren't you just talking about Putin? How long has he been in power again, both in and behind the scenes?

    IMO, the Israeli leadership are practicing psychotic infallibility.

    IMO, this has absolutely and completely nothing to do with Israel. Jews and Israel are not the same thing.

    Summons of Japanese media raises complaints of interference

    They are not 'complaints'. They are extremely legitimate concerns.

    It is about Holocaust, not WWII. The two are not the same.

    Yes, you are correct. I used the term WWII in the context of this article and the topic. However, it would have been more appropriate to use the word Holocaust in that sentence.
