Why do you assume that there off to the USA? what about England, or Europe? Russia? Oz?, NewZeland? China? Since the UK have had a referendum with leaving the EU the word exchange rate has plummeted for us, the Yen was 185 to the pound it is now 110, and the dollar was 1.6 now 1.1 to the pound which makes everything that we import into the UK is XX% more expensive, If these car were destined for the UK market, may be they have just become,say 30% more expensive, and thats why they have not been shipped. we have not had the full picture from this story, we have only assumed that X,Y, or Z is the reason why these cars are in this picture, it could be that the ship has been delayed at sea, or this car parking lot is like this normal, why is it news worthy? i could take a picture of the Toyota car park just up the road from me,and ask the say question, and Land rove, Jaguar have a storage yard only 30 miles away, and its full all of the time, so whats the news article trying to say?

There seams to be a loop hole in the in-law, saying you can catch whales for research, well, can't they put a cap on how many they can catch, (50-100) rather than it being completely open? and can't the IOC stipulate which whales are only to be caught? and IF Japan if found to have a endangered or a whale on there ship that they should not have, well they they could be open for prosecution? this may help stop whalers just killing everything in there path.

Stangeland, i like your comments about "the second amendment" well I've read the second amendment and I can't find anything about the right to carry firearms, only arms, does this mean a stick or a wooden club, or metal pole? I know that the gun laws are pretty lax in the USA, but can they ever tighten them up? I don't think so, please take a look at this you tube comedian who looks at the USA gun laws https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rR9IaXH1M0 (Jimmy Jeffries)

In the UK some years ago there was public safety films that was run on TV. it showed children and adults how to be safe crossing the road. for some reason it all been stopped, but I think it should be retransmitted as people have forgot. may be they should do it in Japan.

Alex, there are lots of factor that you don't know about, just hanging the driver is a bit over the top, we don't know IF he was speeding, he might have been traveling at the correct speed, when a child (If this is the case) come cycling quickly out between a building or some where its poor visibility, it could be the childs fault, either way this is a sad story and Iam sure all of our hearts goes out to her parents for there tragic sad loss.

Jason I totally agree with you on this one, some of the scum in the UK get away with prison time regular her in the UK, they use the excuse that I have no money to pay for the damage that i caused, well my answer to that is there is plenty of queries around YOU can go and break rocks until you have paid back XX amount in time and sweat.

The cost of buying a new ship is expensive, the cost of running the ship is expensive, IE, fuel, man power, insurance, to say that most of this money comes from public donations, It just goes to show how strong peoples feeling are towards saving the whales, good luck to the sea shepherd, keep being a pain in the butt to the whalers, and governments hopefully they will take note of your actions.

Ive had a few Japanese lady pen pals over the years, and thing have gone smoothly until one day emails stop, or tapper off in frequency, they you get an new email address from Xxx san with a no reply address, what I find annoying is 1 the lack of tolerance or 2 the lack of an explanation as to what I've said or done wrong. if some one said look, I dint like the way you suggested XXX or you should have not said that because here in japan its classed as rude or offensive, then next time I can avoid that. when you get cut off like this I find it god dam rude!

Before the death penalty gets debated, may be they ought to look at the whole judicial system IE forced confessions in the cop shop, the cops need more training to spot innocent people, ok the crime rate Statistics’ will go up, but you won't have a load of innocent people going to jail, as for a psychotic knife wielding manic and other grusome murderers do you really think that they can be rehabilitated? I think not! these nut jobs have no place in society and never will. for these cases you need to have the death penalty, I know that I won't be popular for saying this. Some people have commented saying its a form of revenge, no, I don't think so, all they are doing is upholding the law of the country, they didnt go out killing or cutting some one up, nor was it there relatives that were killed, if you think the people like ISIS can be rehabilitated, good luck!.

There is one word that is probably NOT in the Japanese dictionary and thats "fly tipping" its all to common here in the UK, itinerant travellers are the worst offenders, but also house hold owners are a close second, most are to lazy to take there old large items or garden waste to the local tip, so they drive into the country side and empty there car and trailer waste into the nearest layby or farmers gate.
