And what is with the violence or threat of violence if Jason is the land Shintoism, Buddhism, Asian Zen and other material which represent Tranquility?!?!

I am so glad the woman and her daughter are okay.
I hope this subject is locked up in prison for many decades with no parole available.
How on earth could this occur in Japan if Japan is one of the safest countries in the world like Taiwan????!!!!!?????!!!!!!

Thank goodness the 58 year old office worker is okay. I hope no one ever has to go through such traumatic event again.
It is a complete shock that this kind of thing could ever occur in Japan because it is understood that Japan along with Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world. Further, it is also understood by Japan standards Aomori is one of the safest prefectures. This is an absolute shock because it is not like Japan is a third world country like countries in the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, etc. Japan is a vibrant country and this kind of thing is unheard of in Japan let alone Aomori.

Sad to hear about the deaths from this terrible storm. As to Okinawa, there are many good reasons to choose Okinawa as the prefecture of residence. One reason is Definitely the climate due to not having any winter weather and the lowest temperature at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Okinawa seems like it is the safest regarding weather hazards.

This is extremely sad and extremely horrifying. Miki Kawano did not deserve this. In addition now her child is without a Mother. That parasite should receive the death penalty.
It makes absolutely no sense why a disagreement over marital issues such as divorce, custody, etc (I am assuming it is something like this as in many cases) has to lead to this kind of sick and disturbing act. Even if a relationship does not work out, why can’t someone just accept it and either move on or be friendly in some kind of fashion. There is no need for this kind of horrible and disturbing act just because a relationship did not work out. There is so much assistance out there (eg Family Therapists) regarding relationships and marital issues and as a result absolute no reason why someone has to resort to this kind of act.

Reading this article absolutely makes Okinawa the best prefecture to live in Japan. No prefecture is perfect however at least Okinawa does not have to deal with Winter Weather as the temperature does not get below 50 and has the longest beach season. Choosing between snow and the beautiful seaside, I think I would take the seaside.

It is a total shock that this kind of street crime could occur in Japan. My understanding is that Japan along with neighboring Taiwan is one of the safest if not the safest countries in the world. Agree with Stephen Chin that the trio should be subject to the full consequence(s) accordingly.
If we go back to 1987, this kind of incident was almost unheard of if not unheard of in 1987. Something needs to change so this does not get worse. Hopefully, something can occur so it we go back to the way it was in 1987,

I do not condone what he did however being a caregiver is extremely difficult and grueling. Anyone who could assist in this situation (eg agencies) try and get every bit of money out of you. Caregivers are often in a difficult situation because in many instances any one who could assist often tries to take advantage.

I feel for the victim. I hope she gets justice and also is able to get the relevant counseling. This low life should be subject beyond the fullest extent of the law. I cannot state how I feel because my post will get removed most likely because we have this extreme liberals who care more about the criminal than the victim.
I thought Japan along with Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world (safer than most western countries) ???????

Glad to see individuals can have a nice gathering without having alcohol. Always remember, we DO NOT need alcohol to have a good time. Especially in Japan with a large variety of leisure activities (maybe more than any other country) who needs to have alcohol. With all the choices of leisure activities Japan (and maybe neighboring Taiwan was well) is one of the last countries on earth that need alcohol.

How is it that Taiwan (extremely similar to Japan) does not have these issues??? Maybe Japan should learn something from Taiwan.

If we are comparing Japan to other countries regarding safety from A to Z maybe a good country for comparison would be Taiwan because Taiwan is the country most similar to Japan. If Taiwan does better regarding safety in one category, maybe Japan can learn from Taiwan and vice versa.

I thought Japan along with neighboring South Korea and Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world without these kinds of worries.?.?
Here is an easy solution, how about they give these kind of criminals the death penalty via the firing squad.

I do not condone taking someone’s life however I do not want to rush to judgment. As we all know dementia is an EXTREMELY terrible disease. Aside from the individual who has dementia this disease is EXTREMELY difficult and EXTREMELY stressful on everyone else involved. Dementia can wear out anyone physical and mentally. Further the cost of dementia care is astronomical. No one can really assist anyone for in this situation and anyone who may be able to assist is often opportunistic. For instance, any agency, nursing home or geriatric care service charges an arm and a leg for their services. Further, such entities look for any excuse to increase the fees. What is disturbing is that aside from the individual who suffers from dementia many take advantage of the other individuals involved because it is understood they are in an extremely vulnerable stage.
My reason for the above is that anyone who is Mr. Sakamoto’s situation can break. I suspect he was in a situation similar to what I described above.
In conclusion, all this being stated, not that I condone taking someone’s life but I do feel for Mr. Sakamoto. I hope there can be some resolve to all this.

An easy solution: how about the the firing squad for men who commit these acts. The Universe would be less polluted without toxic material.

We're almost at the point when we have to hire bodyguards for our children.
In Japan?! Maybe if you're hysterical. Look at the numbers of violence in the country, and calculate the likelihood of something happening to your kids, and if you're a rational human being you'll feel better.

Both comments make sense. However, if Japan is one of the safest countries in the world like Taiwan (never heard of anything like this occurring in Taiwan), then these kinds of incidents should NEVER occur. My understanding is that Taiwan is extremely similar to Japan especially Okinawa. Something needs to be done to ensure these incidents NEVER occur for eternity.

Why even bother reporting this??? Yes we all need to be cautious however we also need to discontinue worrying about this. Time to end the vaccine requirements and other restrictions. Lets go back to 1987.

This is extremely sad. I do not understand why the man had to become violent and take someone’s life just because the relationship did not work. It is never easy after a breakup but having to resort to extreme violence is absolute insanity. There is never an excuse for violence in any way, shape or form.
Also, let’s say if a relationship whether is it a serious relationship or even marriage does not work, that does not mean there has to be hostility. Relationships are never easy and do not always work. Even if a relationship does not work/ends in a divorce, the parties can still be friends or even best friends. A relationship is much more difficult than a general friendship. As a result, there is no issue with staying general friends after a breakup/divorce. A friendship is obviously different however it is still a good thing. If a relationship does not work, rather than having hostility, it is much better to maintain a friendship. Even if the other person finds someone else, rather than see that other individual as an enemy, how about see the other individual as a potential new friend.
For instance, let’s say if a relationship Individual A and Individual B does not work and Individual A decides to end such relationship thereby telling that Individual B. Individual B may not like the news but he could just be civil about and acknowledge his understanding and thereby they can still be friends. Further let’s say if individuals A meets Individual C and they form a relationship and it results in marriage and it works out well. Individual B can still be friends with Individual A and has the chance to find a new friendship with Individual C. In such example it is much better if a relationship does not work out to still maintain a friendship and engage in Universal Tranquility.
Regardless of whether or not a relationship does not work or works, it is time to engage in Universal Tranquility for eternity.

Why should Japan be concerned about accepting refugees. Japan like other countries has enough of its own issues. There are many in the domestic front who need assistance. And why should we be concerned about refugees especially since we do not know these individuals. We need to discontinue being politically correct and ensure that protecting ourselves is on the front burner.

Hearing about this kind of weather really makes Okinawa the best prefecture to live due to no temperature below 50 degrees and no winter weather ie no snow, no ice and no uncomfortable temperatures.
