Have him remove other graffiti on weekends for a month. Who knows? It might lead to a part-time job and some responsibility.

He should be shipped off to the JGSDF!!

I remember when this news first hit. People said it was probably a foreign tourist.

It seems not to be the case.

I feel there is a growing anti-foreign sentiment in this country at the moment and it's affecting me quite badly. So much so, that when I opened this article I just scanned for the word foreign and breathed a sigh of relief when I couldn't find it.

It's a sad state of affairs that will only get worse. Should we rejoice in the Japanese failures such as this for clearing our good names as "the foreigners"?

Yes, and that's why there are so few comments here. Probably didn't have much legs on J-TV either. It's only heinous to most in the native AND expat community when a foreigner does it.

Yes totally agree, have the 15 year old student purge, contemplate his frustration, teen angst, cleaning his graffiti at Emperor Meiji's mausoleum with a tooth brush, and a cloth.

He will still be there at Christmas.

Perhaps the headline should be Japanese student suspected of spraying graffiti.

Dan; your posting is affecting me at the moment, too! Hang in there and keep smiling, stay positive!

What has happened to the world? Back in the 80s we had a much better way of getting rid of our teenage frustrations. I like to think that we all played our part in making Kleenex the corporation it is today.
