    In this I have to agree with Aly here, plenty of people I know vaguely think about suicide at one time or another in their lives, but dismiss the thought and get on with their lives.

    21,000 last year did not. One of the top ten reason Japanese people die is via suicide. Smokers do the same think but it just takes longer. That is number one on the list, lung cancer, at least for men.

    Build that wall! Or better yet spread that net. We have got to stop those illegal aliens from swimming to Japan. They are taking jobs away from legal foreigners and besides they never really dry off. A really beautiful net, with a single opening in it for good foreigners to come through. I love the good foreigners, they are terrific. Bad foreigners, just plan sad.

    Pit bulls and similar dogs are dangerous when their owners are dangerous

    Yes.

    Blame the owner, blame the dog. This little girl is still dead due to a pet just the same. The above shows typical soft thinking on the part of dog owners. "My sweet poochy would not do that", until a child is dead.

    I hope that the dog in this case is not put down because of this incident.

    Are you serious? You want to let this dog live so it kills another kid? More warped thinking from the emotionally confused about dogs. Clearly according to this line of thought dogs are more important than humans, many dog owners think that. It is sad.

    Dog owners are second only to smokers in this country as a public nuisance.

    I'm for free education for everyone, even if they raise taxes by 100%, I don't want my kids to live in a society of stupids.

    Do not move to the USA.

    The best school system in the world, Finland. Totally free education.

    Education in Finland is an education system with no tuition fees and with fully subsidised meals served to full-time students. The present education system in Finland consists of daycare programmes (for babies and toddlers) and a one-year "pre-school" (or kindergarten for six-year-olds); a nine-year compulsory basic comprehensive school (starting at age seven and ending at the age of sixteen); post-compulsory secondary general academic and vocational education; higher education (University and University of applied sciences); and adult (lifelong, continuing) education.

    Abe is right on this point, Japan is running out of kids. The ones they do have need to be highly educated for Japan to survive.

    Aso questions link between smoking and lung cancer. Later in article, Japan has 130,000 deaths a year from lung cancer. Aso of course must smoke, no other way he could make such a stupid statement.
    Nice to know that when Aso retires he can become a scientist and research the link between smoking and cancer, already established 60 years ago by the tobacco companies themselves but hidden from the public in order to make money.

    Fact is that now most people do not smoke in Japan. Restaurants once they are really smoke free will see an increase in their business. This has been proven over and over again across the world. Smokers are a dying minority but pretend otherwise, it comes along with fooling themselves that they will not get lung cancer at some point. Smokers are addicts, just like other junkies, and cannot think clearly. It is like telling a person with a loaded gun he is pointing to his head that he is sane.

    Smokers will die anyway from their disgusting addiction. What this law will do is protect the 15.000 who die because of smokers passive smoke in Japan. That is the point.

    They should also jack up the price of tobacco as well to try and save lives. Smokers will not quit unless they cannot pay for their fix. Smokers healthcare costs when they do get cancer are a huge drain on society. We all have to pay for the utter stupidity of addicted smokers.

    Japan could not do this on its own, it takes pressure from the IOC to do the right thing for the 80% of us in Japan that do not smoke.

    It will never happen!

    Yes it will. Thank you IOC. Japan cannot do it by itself that is true as the oyaji types running this country are smokers. But it will happen so Japan can appear normal during the Olympics.

    But quite a career for this not quite top-tier talent. Good on him.

    I find a decent measure of weather or not you are 'cheating' or doing something wrong or on the verge of it in this kind of situation is to ask yourself, "Would I tell my wife and family?"

    I would not tell my wife about your posts?

    How much more of this incompetent liar will it take for his voters to admit they elected a buffoon.
    HRC would have been lightyears better than Trump and we all know it.

    An investment company buying an investment company. Does that not say that Softbanks VC people are weak? Maybe they are.

    An excellent article, kudos to the authors. Why let other regions profit from this business when Asian tourists are coming to Japan anyway for the food and the culture?

    So who is the bigger threat to democracy and the US political ideals, Putin or Trump.

    Thanks republicans for electing a total loser and a Putin puppet.

    Nuclear power, clean and safe is what the puppet boys like to say. Three out of three meltdowns, radiation at levels unseen before. The entire Pacific ocean irradiated by this man made disaster. And what has Abe learned from this, nothing. Pushing nuclear as he and his corrupt party always have even today.

    The TPP failure is just one early example of how Trump will destroy the US economy. There is no country happier now in the world that China about Trump becoming President, well other than Putin since he has cultivated Trump as his agent for the last five years. But in China they must be moving the calendar forward by about then years when China moves past the USA economically. Thanks Trump voters for making the USA second best. Make America great again? No, make American second to China is the reality of the Trump doctrine.

    A year from now when Trump takes the US and the rest of the world into another republican recession no one will remember this PR stunt. The voters for Trump are suckers and the business people now exploiting Trump are no better. The economy right now is booming but in one year Trump will screw it up like he did Trump Airlines, or Trump University or his failed casinos. Failure leads to more failure. Trump voters, many of them, will be out of work due to their electing such a loser. It will be a rerun of 2008 under Bush, just faster this time as Trump is even more clueless than Bush.

    Now it is drug dealers or users, a year from now it will be another group who are threatening society, either rightly or not. Duterte is a thug, you know that just by looking at him. He happens to be an elected one. Otherwise he could be a drug lord himself easily.
    One possible explanation is that Duterte is in the pocket one of the drug lords and is a tool to wipe out the competition. Otherwise he would have been executed himself by now. Someone powerful is protecting him from the consequences of his horrible crimes as President. Anyway, this will not end well. We all know that. The country will suffer and live will be more miserable for most. Drug use is horrible, anarchy is worse.
