Papa Katsu…Tough girl but if she is doing this sought of thing already her life can’t have been great from the beginning…sad

How do you know it was that? How about not judging someone until you know what you are talking about!

OMG! When does it stop?

When the Japanese government stops wasting money on military equipment it does not need and stops wasting money on donations for wars Japan has no involvement in!

Look after your own people first Kashida!!

Make cyclists pay some kind of registration fee for their bikes and make it law to wear a fluorescent jacket with a registration number on the back to they can be reported when breaking the law. After all, they are road users so why not be able to report them. And they should be wearing fluoro jackets anyway. One who does not is a fool.

SO perhaps if the government stopped giving money away to wars on the other side of the world Japan has nothing to do with and stopped spending trillions of yen on a military upgrade it does not need and look after their own people first perhaps people would be more open to having children

So, riding a bike home now after one beer you can go to prison or be fined ¥500,000. Riding a bike to your home takes 4 times as long as driving a car. On a bike you are fully visible for a longer length of time vs in a car well hidden for a shorter length of time. Can see whats going to happen here.

Fightoo, Japan roads are only about two lane ,in the Houston area they have the Beltway 8,it encircled Houston for 30 miles , Japan roads are like alleys compared to US roads Google Beltway 8

I have just come back from Houston and the reason they have 5 lanes is for the people who can't drive! They need that may lanes! :)

All signs point to no.

A scaled up drone, single seat, unnecessarily complex.

A toy for the wealthy rentier who cannot yet afford their own helicopter.

No, nobody with a mind expects flying vehicles to become anything. People cannot handle a 2D road, flying is out of the question. Even if you put a robot in charge, no, as the dangers will be too high. A collision in mid air? Hitting a building?

Its coming, and within 5 years.

EV's are a big thing at the moment but watch this space, in 8-10 years from now Hydrogen will be the market leader. EV's have a place but it is certainly not in the Eco friendly box.

Posted in: Man arrested for killing 90-year-old father, says he was worn out from caring for him See in context

Gene Hennigh

This fellow could have reached out for help, at least probably, rather than to do what he did.

The problem is there is no help for the elderly in Japan. This is a story read often in the media here where siblings are "worn out from taking care" of parents. These elderly work and pay taxes for 50 plus years only for the government here the laugh at them and spend their tax money on military equipment that are not needed and to donate money to wars that Japan has no involvement in. I like Japan but hate how the government here ignore and walk away from the elderly

They must be very poor. It sounds like there is no social service to help people in serious needs. That’s why so many people are suiciding.

There is no money for there to be social services to the elderly in Japan. Kashida is giving it all away for wars Japan has nothing to do with and also on military equipment for Japans military. Why on earth would Japan want to help the elderly when they can spend it on that!

Japan spends less than 1.5% of gdp on its military, hosting the US, and aid to Ukraine. Perhaps you would like it to be 0?

If it means the elderly who paid the taxes for 50 years for the government to ignore them get the help they need then yes!!

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly having sex with minor at welfare facility where he works See in context

So...rape?

The phrasing used in the title made me assume that the minor had consented to the act (even if minors can't really give their consent), hence using the term "having sex". If the minor did not consent, which the article states, then the term you are looking for is "rape".

Make you wonder who's side the media is on.

This incident literally happened about 12 hours before the copy of this story was published. Of course it is going to be the most basic of facts - even the police would not know most of the detail.

Expecting a comprehensive article the very next day is rather bizarre.

In that case then the media should not report it at all until they know the facts.

JT and other news organisations in Japan often highlight the nationality or ethnicity of crime suspects, potentially contributing to sensationalism and the perpetuation of stereotypes in pursuit of attention and clicks.

The "suspects" are foreigners NOT Brazilians! Don't judge.

Obviously the truck driver was distracted. Most likely he was using his phone. Just about every second car I see the driver using their phone.

Obviously? How do you know? Were you in the car next to him watching? Don't make a judgement call on something you have no idea on.

Yet again judgement comments! How about mechanical failure?

I said "most likely reasons", not "the only reasons".

Operator error is far more likely than mechanical failure. And, the most likely cause of operator error is impairment, either from intoxication or illness.

It may very well be mechanically related, such as steering or brake system malfunction. But, it is far less likely. My yen is on operator error.

SO how about before you comment on something the drivers family could be reading you actually wait until actually know what your talking about!

I have mixed feelings about the specification of “Brazilian food store” and of “seemed to be foreigners”. On one hand, yes, it does seem obvious indications are being made. However, I often wish western media would be more like this and indicate the perpetrators more clearly. In the west, they are so afraid of being accused of racial profiling. Readers are left to make their own conclusions.

I don't think the media should be reporting it at all until they actually know the truth rather than promoting unnecessary racism.

I hope they tested the truck driver for blood alcohol. There are two likely reasons for veering over the line on a straight road: he was drunk; or he was unconscious due to fatigue or illness.

Police said the victim told them the two thieves appeared to be in their 20s and seemed to be foreigners.

Thieves, Aichi in the parking area of a Brazilian food store, Can anyone guess where those foreigners come from?

Again making judgement! Is it not possible that it was 2 men from another foreign country that simply picked that shop to rob someone? JT should remove the word Brazilian from this story, it implicates a race when it may not be the case.

Mr KiplingApr. 29  05:34 pm JST

As often happens this is probably only part of the story... Why has the teacher been on leave of absence? Why was he waiting? Was he being watched? Previous history of dubious behavior?

Read it carefully. He was not ON a leave of absence, he TOOK a leave of absence AFTER this happened.

A HUG?!!! He has police troubles for a giving a student a hug?!!!! This is exactly why young people gorw up with issues. Kids needs affection and made to feel they are wanted in the world.
