Good for her, she is brave. Does not say she was raped though so readers please read before posting. Question I always have about Japanese tourists is why does it seem that they get themselves into really bad situations overseas, is it naivety? In Japan thousands of women are assaulted, groped and raped monthly so why is this news, maybe because she was not raped and she felt brave enough to say i'm not going to take this bs.

I would like to thank this young girl for her efforts, she should get many more kudos for her work. The one thing I noticed first visiting then living in Japan is a lack of public trash cans on street corners. Japan as a whole is not the squeaky clean place it tries to tell the world it is and is a facade at/on many levels.

Good for the young couple on new years wishes. If Japan had more couples like them, the population decline would probably go away.

Before cutting edge drug cocktails that will almost cure hiv aids viruses people were a lot more careful. Now with the advances in immunology people are getting sloppy. Syphilis on the rise in Japan today does not surprise me.

Mexico is looked down upon by most central and south american countries as corrupt and full of really low class people. They decapitate people right andleft. Their prisons are a joke. They get what they deserve when no one wants to use their cheap labor.

Those folks that got murdered and wounded were/are victims of stupid laws. Each state has different laws, each airline handles weapons differently, law enforcement organizations are so ununified that it is pathetic. The United States of Ametica should be renamed as the ununited states of america. Lol

I believe that after WWII during the occupation cannabis was banned by the US military forces under McArthur's reign. It's cultivation was only allowed for religious purposes. Wonder what was in McArthurs corn cob pipe?
Shichimi seaoning has sterilized hemp seeds in it as I saw in the USA but a few years ago the seeds seem to be gone.
If more people used cannabis instead of alcohol we would have a calmer world and very few fatal accidents. Imho

Sad story. Too many Japanese women get murdered while abroad. They get hooked up with all these jerks and end up dead. Naivety is a large part of the problem.

The osprey is a poorly designed machine with a bad history and should be scrapped. Helicopters are advanced enough to take the place of these osprey hybrid fixed verses variable wing types. Osprey are dangerous and the osprey lobbyists are deep into someone's pocket in Washington

I dont see anything wrong with imposing high taxation of capital equipment not manufactured inside a country that has existing manufacturing resources and outsourcing those goods that will negatively impact that country's gdp. The USA should have high taxes on Chinese made goods and put those taxes to work rebuilding it's crumbling infrastructures

Jeeze what a way to start off the new year. Hope they were able to recover and reattach his leg. With technology today they can reattach and regrow bone to make up for the loss caused by the damage. Good luck to him.
