Quintessential Japan. The ends always justify the means. All will be forgiven.

Oh well, eternally lit except for the short period when it wasn't!

The burning question left unanswered in this article is how or why did the flame go out?

Even on a microcosmic level Japan lies and fudges data. No earth-shattering results, but once again we see lies, and I wonder how much money has been made off people going to light something from the "eternal flame" while the people in charge kept up the charade?
