Posted in: Man held for coercing 18-year-old woman into unwanted porn shooting See in context

"I reassured her that the video would keep her face out. It was actually a porn-video shoot

In a country where there is no shortages of women lining to do porn mainly for the easy money lesser extent out of boredom or their love lives going no where its gonna take more than someone saying they were coerced into performing.

  1. The Japanese are considered insular as a society and perceived (rightly or wrongly) as being unfriendly to English-speaking people.

Posted in: Annual number of foreign visitors to Japan tops 10 mil at fastest pace See in context

By country and region in April, visitors from South Korea came first at 554,600, followed by China at 528,800, Taiwan at 413,300, and Hong Kong at 209,400.

I see the bulk of the inbound tourists are still from other Asian nations its a pity that Western Tourists don't see Japan as a Tourist destination but at least it hasn't been ruined like Thailand

The Japanese nor any else in the World should worry about the cult known as Global Warming, Climate Change or any other name - according to experts half the islands in the Pacific should be under water by now, again according to the experts Australia should have run out of water by now blah blah blah you get the picture its no more than a con Al Gore turned himself into a billionaire out of all the suckers who believed all that Climate Change rubbish all while he flies around the world in his carbon producing jet - when they can accurately predict the weather a week in advance then they can work on weather predictions a month advance etc

Fujimoto’s lawyer said his client had been stressed out from child-rearing and that Okawara bears responsibility for not stopping her from harming her children

The partner bears responsibility for not stopping her - what does that mean the husband has to oversee his wife 24 hours a day? Call the cops? Chain her to the bed?????????????
