Stop bottling up your anger and feelings, Japanese people.

Thinking about death myself from time to time, all in all this is not such a bad way to go. No lingering.

Too much domestic violence in Japan. Is the government considering any measures to fight it?

Probably. Some long government studies of the issue, which will spend pot loads of money and conclude that the Japanese government should take steps to try to reduce domestic violence.

If the government even recognized him as a victim of domestic violence it would be a major victory for human rights.

Don't kid yourself, stomach wounds and bleeding out are not a very romantic way to go folks. Had a couple of people bleed out in my arms, and it is not that pleasant, stomach wounds in particular.

i think the issue is not just 'coming home late'...perhaps he's having an affair with another woman...and she found ut about it...:)

Truck drivers have a hard job. She just killed her golden goose. Anyway, a sushi knife is far better than an ol' fruit knife.

arguing everyday does not constitute bottling up ones anger.

was arrested for allegedly stabbing her husband Hideyuki with a fruit knife at home

Exactly why tightening the knife laws is missing the point.

Either it's his job, cheater, or he just want some down time away from his family. Either way he shouldn't get stabbed by a fruit knife. Looks like he might have a woman on the side. It's better to walk away then to kill sombody.

Blame the victim. If the victim is male then BLAME the victim!! He was stabbed for refusing to follow her orders. He is a human and not her servant.

The victim was taken to hospital after she called an ambulance.

Why didnt she run away from the scene. hmm.. A very quick regret. or she actually didnt mean kill, but just wanted to punish him.

Arrested? why not a reward for her. We don't want drivers coming home, probably drunk, at 5 a.m.

Does she come from 'Sumo' family? She must have a good reason to fix him up. He is the only one that could tell the truth, and now he is in the freezer, and she will be guest of the government for a long time. Will they hang her or will she get Doctrine or Masters in Criminology?

I agree that men can be the victems of domestic violence. This is, more then liekly, just the tip of something that has been going on for some time! I feel bad for him! And she has/had a hard working husband...

First, no one should die like that i don't care what they did. Secondly sister there are alot of other men in Japan to hire as a new husband so you did not have to take that route.

She probably didn’t get any caressing from him but a smell of another women and lots of stupid excuses. Still killing isn’t the solution.

We don't know the full story so stop with "he had another woman." Geez, not all men cheat. If he's a truck driver he may be working late hours. Either way, she was way out of control. Stabbing someone over being late is so trivial a reason. I'd hate to think what people do here for real crimes of cheating, beating, and etc...

Poor guy!

Obviously he had his reasons for staying out late, as she has now proved!

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. He should have believed her when she siad "the next time you come late, I'm gonna kill ya"

Selfish lady, did not even want to let her husband earn a living. trucking requires long hours of work, and sometimes trying to make it home early is dangerous, so the best thing is to take a nap, and return home next day. She is a lunatic.

Remember, if you have problems, just leave and start all over again. You were born alone, (except in multiple births when you are born with sibblings).

Seems she took her wedding vows to the extreme...well, she has definitely parted from him now. Maybe in her fruity mind divorce was not an option.
