    Brad Pitt is a child abuser? Sorry, but I refuse to believe this until solid evience is produced. I hope the poor guys' reputation isn't trashed due to spite.

    Rest in Peace, the poor woman was just having fun and enjoying herself on vacation. I have fond memories of ripping up and down beaches and waterways on these exciting machines, jumping waves and the odd surfer. Be careful when riding around on these jetskis, though - the brakes are not particularly good.

    How goood would it be if she became the first Japanese Major winner...at 47! It would give hope to the likes of Nishikori, who has 20 more years to follow suit!

    This guy is delusional. Sure, Abe, drones and robots are the solution to the demographic disaster! Just keep delaying any structural changes forever. The thing is, drones and robots cannot pay tax...

    And BTW, what are Reuters thinking - since when has Abe been "His Excellency"? Or has Dear Leader started insisting on the title?

    if you see a PET bottle of "tea" along the road, DON'T open it! At least I haven't been struck by one of these missiles.

    Ha ha - very true! I was always wondering why so many half-full very yellowish "tea" was lying around by the roadside on inter-city truck routes here!

    In public areas, Japan always seems very clean. Heck, shopkeepers take pride in even sweeping the odd leaf away from their shopfront.

    Sadly, it seems a case of "out of sight, out of mind" quite often - the amount trash I see underneath bridges when jogging, for example - is pretty awful. Not just the countless bottles and empty bentos thrown off the bridge, but bagged trash that has been purposely dumped under bridges and on trails. Washing machines, tyres, rice cookers...I see it all. I wonder if this author gets out of the city centre often?

    What is Israel doing for us these days?

    Sapping enormous amounts of American taxpayers' money it appears.

    Well done on the whitewash! Japan sure is becoming a force in tennis. Will we see them join the Australias, USAs, GBs etc and soon win this famous old mug? Dont bet against it with all the young kids playing tennis here now, hungry for international success. All the tennis courts near me are always packed out...even in the rain!

    Great stuff, well done! What a tough job it would be being a Guide Runner! I wonder if they also get a medal?

    @ Albaleo and MASSWIPE - thanks guys - I stand corrected! For some reason I thought Ms.Doi had been a JCP member, not the Socialist leader. Anyway, GO Renho!

    the first woman to head Japan’s main opposition party.

    Sorry to be a pedant, but more importantly, Renho is the first woman to lead any major political party in Japan. Respect. Great news, lets hope she shakes things up, because what we have right now is certainly not working. She seems tough, media savvy and intelligent enough to weather any attempted character assassination from Abe and his attack dogs, too.

    Buying up a country is the same as invading a country but far cheaper and easier. All the developed countries are aware of China's tactics, time for Australia to wake up.

    What is your take on the Chinese buying up prime real-estate in Tokyo and agricultural land, hotels and resort areas in Hokkaido? Is it time for Japan to wake up, too?

    A high percentage of Aussies - myself included - hold dual passports/foreign citizenship. It would open up a pandoras box if they banned all who hold foreign citizenship from political donations!

    Theyre still heroes in my book. I watched a piece about a young Japanese man with ALS recently. The poor man can only move his eyes, yet is an author, activist and father of a young child. I can tell you there wasnt a dry eye in the studio - or our house. These people motivate me when Im feeling lazy or sorry for myself - I pinch myself and realise there are so many physically much worse off making the best of things.

    Mind-boggling performance from Ms Hata - being able-bodied and completing a triathlon is tough enough...her challenges make it unimaginably harder.

    @ Moonraker - I have to agree, sadly. The Games are all over the BBC, where I have just been shocked to discover Japan is currently ranked 53rd in the medal tally. Most worryingly, however, is that there has been almost no coverage of the Games in the prime-time media here. Why do they focus so much on the able-bodied Olympians, medal tally etc - but not these amazing Paralympians? Can things change before Tokyo2020?

    These wrestlers are amazing! Just wish they would have more media coverage of them and all the other athletes. There is a lot of media in the UK through BBC, barely nothing here. C'mon Japan, show some support for these hero athletes!

    LDP is becoming powered by women now.

    Powered by women? Really? More like lightly sprinkled with women by their geriatric fathers to "continue their legacy".

    Well played to Stanley, I hope he gives the Djoker a run for his money in the final. Young Kei is getting closer and closer each time to nabbing a major title, but yes, it is disappointing. He looked to be struggling in the hot and humid conditions, which was a surprise as I wouldve thought as a Japanese he would revel in it, compared to a swissman!

    I've a feeling 2017 will be the year of Nishikori!

    Maybe - just maybe - the time has come for the old guard in Tennis, the Williams', Murrays, Djokers etc, to step aside for the new generation of superstars to dominate the sport for years - the Pliskovas and Nishikoris.
