Posted in: Police bolster 'soft target' security for G-7 summit See in context

There have been over the last week police patrolling all day at some stations along the Keio Inokashira line. I have no idea why, seems a little odd...some of these stations are small and irrelevant.

Posted in: Abenomics on the ropes as yen soars, markets plunge See in context

I`m no economist but to increase sales taxes and give big business large corporate tax cuts hoping they will pass savings on to everyday workers was probably never going to work. Oh yeah and forgot about the increasing inflation too, good one.

Posted in: Japan beats Australia 1-0 to advance to semifinal against England at Women's World Cup See in context

@smith not a stretch but FYI the Matildas made it to the quarter-finals in the previous two World Cups where they were defeated by Sweden 3-1 in 2011, and Brazil 3-2 in 2007. I would not call it their deepest run but more a deep run that they have achieved twice before.

It's Australia to win it all and it's not even close.

These days I don't feel safe closing my eyes on the train for this exact reason. Soon we will see the excuse that someone wanted to know what its like to kill a gaijin.

This kind of article had been written at least once before, you would think he would have got the message now. It's not gonna happen but just keep on asking, at least he can say he tried right? Pathetic....

WilliB - I am not comparing the reason why they are prisoners, actually I am not comparing anything.

Posted in: Families plead for lives of IS hostages as swap hopes fade See in context

Here's an idea, how about Japan says no on the deal and Jordan kills their prisoner. An eye for an eye, perhaps next time they will think twice on hostage negotiation trades.

A long time ago I went in to get an iced caramel drink or whatever they call them without looking at the price and when the young lady said it was going to be about $6 I almost walked out, but alas I paid and have never been back since.

Posted in: Japan vows not to give up on hostages until very end See in context

Very strange. There were various reports that came out on Fox was that the video was or seems to have been edited, if that is the case, what does that mean and why would these guys do it?

Lol, you use Fox as your news source?

Posted in: UAE eliminates Japan from Asian Cup in penalty shootout; Iraq beats Iran See in context

Towards the end of the game they showed that Japan had 21 shots at goal and UAE just 3 yet UAE was winning 1-0. If you didn't know the scoreline you would have thought it was 4-0 Japan. Sorry but Japan deserved to lose that one. They have been desperate for a good striker for so long now that they could have nurtured one from birth. Not sure why Kagawa is still there, the guy couldn't score in a brothel.

It was a strange interview, she went on a tangent about nuclear energy in Japan and the future of Japan's children? Also how did she not know her son had a newborn baby?

Should be a cracker Dave, I would also recommend the Uzbekistan vs Saudi Arabia matchup. Pretty sure both games will not be broadcasted anywhere.

He is Japan's number one salesman indeed, going over to the Middle East so see what weapons he can sell them no doubt.

On behalf of the citizens on Japan I would like to congratulate TEPCO for an outstanding effort in your continued perusal of keeping this a safety country. Let the fighting Samurai spirit remain within. Hold your head high TEPCO.

Let me guess this has something to do with the recent US embassy warning about drink spiking. I bet they ripped off the wrong person ie. embassy official and now the police need to show they are actually doing something? Nothing to see here, carry on...

This has been going on for over a decade and the police still turn a blind eye. They must be making a killing. With the Olypmics coming up they better clean up the place or it will turn Japan into the not so "safety" country that the world thinks.

Posted in: Japanese Communist Party says it will reverse most of Abe's policies See in context

Joe Bigs' comment above is totally off the mark. He just doesn't know anything about Japanese Communist Party. He is badly mixing it up with other communist parties in countries like North Korea, China, or Russia. I hope Japanese Communist Party will at least double its present seats in the next election. Dear JoeBigs, please take a little time to study what Japanese Communist Party has been doing in this country in the past few decades and what the party actually stands for.

Hello Japanese Communist Party :)...... I mean Onishi-san.
