    For the sake of the Japanese people, the government really needs to stop sticking its nose in fights it has no concern with. It's sad the two gentlemen died, yes, but ISIS are nothing but cold blooded murderers who have tarnished Islam's name. I feel quite sorry for the vast majority of Muslims worldwide who have condemned terrorism (many have) and still get blamed for it. Many have done atrocities in the name of everything you can think of, even Buddhism in Myanmar. But the fact is, terror has no religion, this applies to all.

    @Chris Ward... you're better off speaking to a proper Imam. The one in the article is dubious.

    Did the devout muslims reading this article know that you actually CAN eat non-halal meat if you can't find it...?

    You have got that wrong. If you read the whole context, it says, "if one is FORCED"... meaning life OR death situation. Meat is not mandatory and there are vegetable and seafood options available too. But this is only catering to their delicacies like how Western tourists are catered through McDonalds or KFC.

    Consumers should go to these places more rather than the big flashy mall.

    Guys, Japan is not a unique country that needs to be protected by 'evil' Muslims or foreigners. This is purely a business ploy for TOURISTS because they want their money, nothing else.

    Besides, in its strictest sense, many traditional aspects of Japanese culture works in harmony with Muslim ideals when it comes to respect, discipline, respect for parents, elders and authority. Modern Japanese culture won't because it is heavily Westernised.

    Japan needs a social revolution. The meaning of life is superficial and degraded to an eventual corporate worker to them. They see no solution other than suicide to their problems, no God or deity to turn to.

    With the sort of hard lives and expectations Japanese go through, I'm surprised others haven't joined him.

    Come on guys, if they aren't jumping at trains, they will just jump and kill themselves elsewhere. Its a deep underlying issue no one has addressed.

    These people have no hope in life outside of the material present, lack of religion is part of this and also, Japanese social attitudes to punctuality and loyalty should be more flexible. Sometimes, it is okay to be late for work, losing your job isn't all that bad despite what your peers and society perpetuate and make you believe.

    Like the rest of Asia I don't think many Japanese care about how their cities look. Practicality and convenience above all else makes for some real eye-sore cities, stories like this make me think it's not getting better.

    I agree, the lack of colour and vibrancy astounds me. Bright lights in Shinjuku don't cut it in the long run either. Japanese cities are build to last around 30 years, the ones in Europe, about centuries. They care too much about practicality than ideas.

    I'd also add the amount of money Japanese women spend on beauty products, personal grooming etc (nails every three weeks, for example). Has to be the highest in the world, no?!<

    South Korea is the highest I think seen as a lot of women get double eye lid surgeries too and they literally baby their skin when they were young...the US comes close to them. Even China is becoming like this. I respect Filipina women are lot especially who many don't go to these stupid lengths to look good.

    Japan doesn't need "economic reforms", it needs social reforms. The fact that these old guys who are still stuck in 1970's way of life of expecting everyone to be filial to a corporate boss is the problem. The youth are becoming less interested in that way of life so professions like agriculture and writing should be made much more attractive.

    Trying to claim the reasons are financial doesn't do justice as to why it happens. Japan is a cold, conformist, distant and materialistic and superficial orientated society where money and face rules everything. Millions of people are in a financially worst situation than Japanese yet suicides are not nearly as much as in Japan for that reason. Other countries do not place such high expectations on the superficial like East Asian countries. In Japan, if you lose your job its a big thing, elsewhere they'll think okay.. I'll find another one.

    I suppose if they had been 'rebellious' and ignored the demands to stay where they were you'd be saying the same thing. The fact is, the 'adults' told them to stay put while they bailed in a panic, and the kids died following the adults' instructions. So, really, who are the children?

    Because Korea has a culture of obedience so following authority without question is the norm. It highlights deeper issues about the culture of Korea as a hyper competitive and money orientated society.

    A result of Japan's culture of extreme conformity and stress. Japan's birth rate is low as it is and its getting worse when you have the next generation jumping in front of trains.

    I think its the East Asian education culture of being too rigid, lack of teacher-student rapport, the kids being nothing but mindless drones, pressures etc. I mean if Japan is so developed as a country, how come they still stick to 20th century style of schooling? If Japan was a 2nd or 3rd world country, such ways may be understandable but Japan's problem sometimes lie in the way they do things.

    Japan and Korea have a lot in common. High suicide rates, too much focus on technology, too much materialism etc

    Japan's birthrate is low as it is and trying to fill the jobs with women is short term thinking at best. What Japan needs to do is bring down the cost of living which will encourage population growth and if that means the country going poorer then so be it. Its better the country loses money in the short term than in the next 10 years half the workforce is comprised of grey haired 50 years old robots.
