A 27-year-old man was arrested for attempted murder on Wednesday, accused of hitting his father on the head and face with a hammer.

Police received a call at about 3.30 p.m. from Yasuaki Hamada’s mother saying he had hit his father with a hammer. Police rushed to the home in the town of Iwami and found the father bleeding from his head and face. Police found Yasuaki in the neighborhood wearing a shirt with blood on it, and arrested him for attempted murder. He is also believed to have hit his father with a one-meter wooden pole.

The father was taken to a hospital where he is in a stable condition.

Or attempted murder, at least.

Does he get points for turning himself in?

Hammers are a fad now in Japan. Lots of "would be MC Hammers" out there. Main reason: No love and unity in the family. The saying goes: "A house divided among itself will not stand".

Time for a bit of a sing along, come on everybody: "If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning......"

We don't know the real circumstances behind the incident, but must consider what could have instigated the young man to have so much animosity towards his father.

The title of the article says a hammer, but the article says he may have used a 1 meter wooden pole. Which was it?

Both, I think.

I'm a little confused - I was told Japan was a culture where family ties are extremely important, where elders are respected and revered and harmony and unity persists in all groups and areas.

But the news just isn't adding up to this these days....

Lucky father and unlucky son. Father should turn around and chop off his head. A son shouldn't do this to his own father. It doesn't matter what instrum,ent he was using on his father we do not treat our fathers that way but with respect!!! What was the reason to hit his father, for money, drugs or booze? I wonder what jurors will think of that??? They will need time to think over cup of coffee with judge.

This is shocking, very shocking behaviour indeed - he will go straight to Hell after death - before that he'll live in hellfire like situation for the rest of his living days.

Polarmalik, I don't think he will be suffering hellfire, rather the opposite. I am sure he feels relieved to get this out of his system, whatever stress his father gave him.

Following that logic I should be able to push my brother in front a bus for borrowing my lawn mower and not refilling the gas, but only if I got really stressed because of it of course.
