Poor woman. I feel so sorry for her, whether or not she chose to die, and whatever her reasons if she did so.

We live in a cruel world. People shouldn't be driven to such actions.

@ Yrral

you have no idea what you are talking about and have obviously lived a lucky easy sheltered life to make such an obtuse comment. Life is hard, life is suffering as Buddha said, some take it better than others.

So sad at a time when Japan really needs people like her. I've seen at least one right wing politician gloat over it as well, such an awful situation

While on the whole I concur with the traditional view that suicide is the cowards way out, nonetheless I feel sympathy for anyone who is so desperate as to contemplate it and more so for those they leave behind.

There's nothing easy about ending one's life. It's not done on a whim, you know.
