What a boring-looking beach. Where are the Waves? Surfers? Skaters? Frisbees? Bikini's? BBQ's? actually for relaxing an empty beach is great, actually spent time on one a few yrs back just my family and two others, beach was clean of rubbish it was great, no noisy crowds, posers, surfers just hog the waves and think they own them, Bikinis! my wife look great in a swimsuit so did the other mother sharing the beach with us. didnt tell my wife that naturally

@clam ther most terrifying flight Ive been on was a Boeing, coming to land at Kansai just before a typhoon hit, it was daylight visibility was minimal due to the heavy rain, but the turbulance was terrifying, sudden drops, big drops every 20-30seconds or so. there wasnt a person on that plane that wasnt crapping themselves. women crying, guy beside me was actually praying. when we eventually touched down everybody applauded. captain came on the pa and apologised for the rought flight and even his voice was a little shaken. 5 minutes later they closed the airport.

I really dont understand why North Korea still wants to keep those Japanese in their land because there are bargaining tool. the longer it goes on the more desperate Japan will become as the parents slowly pass away. sanctions dont work against NK and there isnt really anything Japan can do other than monetary rewards. NK know this and are just milking Japan for all its worth.

of note, all this so called service isnt free, the staffs time is paid for in the goods. now while making employment is good, there are far too many jobs in Japan that the average Taro is paying for but are not needed, eg parking attendants, specialty store with 5 staff serving one customer. give me the choice of minimal service at reduced prices, and ill probably take it 9/10 times

**Get ready to keep paying higher and higher prices for imporated food folks.**** enough of the Japan needs high yen BS, Japan did just fine during the boom years with a low yen. Japan was built on exports no imports. low yen makes Japanese goods and Japanese labour cheaper, and slows the loss of jobs to asian rivals. less jobs mean, more welfare, less income taxes. better get used of a low yen because it wont be going below 100yen/$ anytime soon. oh and those imported foods would still be cheaper than the Japanese items if there wasnt any ridiculous tariffs on them, bring on the TPP. sorry if your imported goods are getting more expensive (buy Japanese made instead) or your repatriated Japanese wages arent worth as much in your home country, fact is your doing very little to help the J economy if thats you goal

used to bring down the U.S. debt, and/or to bring bad publicity to Japanese care comapnies for the benefit of "Government Motors"? yeah and now GM is trying to hide behind its bankruptsy, stating that the new GM should be held accountable by the old GM, due to the deaths from the indicators switch coverups. and the decisions by US judges looks like they may get away with it. typical J companies get the book thrown at them GM a slap on the wrist.

*only Toyota outsells Hyundai (which owns Kia). * firstly dont even compare the two brands Kia & Hyudai are only good for renatl cars after 3-4 yrs there rubbish. Toyota has built its reputation on relaiabilty which is why there so popular in the US Russia, middle east etc. hyundai kia samsung etc are heavily subsidised by the Korea government.

**@gogogo my point of view is that japanese people are prosperous and rich. They have lots of assets,**** compared to Africa maybe but in the 1st world not so much, Japans wealth to capita is dwindling rapidly, most of it is held by the countries elderly. when they died and the J gov has claimed most of it inheritance taxes there wont be much left for the younger generation and Japan will be considerable poor compared to other 1st world countries.
