It's either "shinkansen" or "bullet train", but not both; that's like saying Mt Fuji-san, or the Tamagawa River.

The guy was satisfied that he had killed the guy who tried to stop him attacking the two women, but sorry that he had not killed them too, according to this evening's news.

@expat, I often use both, especially in the beginning when I am not sure how much the readers will understand the subject matter. As to your two examples though, I might write Fuji San (Mt Fuji) or Tamagawa (Tama River).

Off to the gallows with him.

If he attempted a robbery in a jewellery store, or if he went round a station pointing a toy gun, he'd get his time in prison. Why kill?

You're that guy who corrects people when they say "ATM machine", aren't you?

+1, it's an excuse. The guy was already out of circulation from decent mainstream society, the Japanese just doesn't have the social infrastructure to pick him up.

When things often happening in public place. It’s time to wonder, what should I do to protect myself, friends and family with one single knife attack. Fill free to give an idea to make an output to helps saving people lives. ‘Coz live matter.
