Now I've heard it all. Japan is so full of these quirky crimes! I was surprised no mention of being drunk or being perpetrated by a j cop.

The press were making such a fuss about how beautiful and smart this lady was. Poor lady, thrusted into the limelight and now falling from grace. Hope she can prove her research was all it was hyped up to be.

Mao has so much class. If you've seen her interviews today, she's been graceful in defeat and grateful with her achievements to date. Poor lady so much pressure for such a young lady. Good luck going forward

Reading this article gives me the impression that these people are too snobby to receive intended goodwill from donators. Ok sure used underwear and expired goods should not have been donated in the first place, but gees I wonder they would still complain if a usable TV was given without a remote.

another example of J-cop incompetence. 1000 emails = harassment. This guy should have been arrested and a put in jail without taking an innocent life.

stalking is such a bad problem in japan, sometimes the only way is to run away , even overseas. J Men feel they own women and that women should be submissive. J Police wont do anything except ring the stalker not to stalk but we saw that does not solve anything.

lack of space is always a bad recipe for frustrations in japan. Unfort Tokyo has a highly dense population...it'd be good if the majority had proper manners.
Unfort this is not the case and it is something I constantly need to put up with (multiple times) on a daily basis e.g. running into someone too engaged in their iphone, mama charis riding dangerously on the sidewalk nearing hitting my pregnant wife, someone placing priority for their shopping bags and not giving the seat to my wife, the list unfort goes on...
