Posted in: Man arrested for sexual assault after breaking into woman’s home through toilet window See in context

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) ???????

There is also vasectomy and then add the condom. Does it get much if any more effective than that.

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.

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting woman See in context

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.

Posted in: Man arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting woman See in context

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.

Posted in: 75-year-old man arrested for killing wife who suffered from dementia See in context

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.

Posted in: Man arrested for stabbing 2 girls in Sendai See in context

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.

This is terrible/sick/disturbing. This suspect should not be allowed to walk the streets again.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 3,788 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 23,269 See in context

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.

Posted in: Man, woman found dead in Yokohama apartment in apparent murder-suicide See in context

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.

Posted in: Japan accepted 74 refugees in 2021, highest on record See in context

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.

Posted in: Heavy snow hits northern Japan, disrupting traffic See in context

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.

Prayers to God that the mother makes a full recovery. EXTREMELY HAPPY to hear that this 17 year old garbage boy died. Good riddance to that 17 year old boy.

Posted in: Heavy snow falls along Sea of Japan coast See in context

After reading this article regarding the heavy snowfall, if one was assessing which prefecture to choose to reside on Japan, Okinawa would be the Number One Choice by far. Which is better:

A. Dealing with the Cold, Snow and/or Ice; or

B. Being in comfortable temperatures on the Sand, Sea and other beautiful activities associated with the Sand and Sea.

“B” would be the easy choice. If one chooses B, Okinawa by far is definitely the Number One Prefecture to reside.

Posted in: Man arrested for attempted murder after stabbing woman walking along street See in context

I feel terrible for this woman. I really hope she will be okay. This suspect should either be locked up for life with no parole or be executed.

I know this is not the first time this kind of thing has occurred. What is going on in Japan. I thought it is one of the safest if not the safest country in the world like neighboring Taiwan. Japan is a first world country like European Countries such as Sweden or other East Asian Nations like Korea or Taiwan. What do Sweden, Korea and Taiwan do to prevent these types of incidents???

Is it safe to visit Japan as a tourist???!

Posted in: Man arrested for groping woman suspected of several similar offenses See in context


The Japanese police should install a sting operation to catch these parasites.

They are actually doing on crowded trains that are notorious for "chikan". And even there, it is a lot of work hours with pretty meager results. Just having police women walk around nilly willy in Tokyo waiting to be groped would be a ridiculous waste of ressources.

0( +0 / -0 )

The idea behind the sting is to take preventative measures so that these type of incidents never occur again. Also, if the parasites get at least 15 years behind bars are with no chance of parole, that is an additional deterrent. We need to cease being concerned about the parasites’ rights and start being concerned/have sympathy regarding the victims (Yes I know some extreme liberal/communist is going to object to this).

Posted in: Man arrested for groping woman suspected of several similar offenses See in context

The Japanese police should install a sting operation to catch these parasites. Have a police woman go undercover as someone dressed extremely provocatively to lure these parasites and then they can be caught before causing harm. Once these parasites are caught, the minimum for such crime should be 15 years in prison with no chance of parole.

Any more serious sexual crime should have 88 years with no chance of parole.

We need to foster a safer society immediately.

Extremely sad and disturbing. That parasite should receive the firing squad. Further, anyone who violates a restraining order should receive a minimum of 10 years in prison with no chance of parole.

Posted in: Sega name to be removed from all of its arcade branches in Japan as part of rebranding See in context

Not sure what to think. At the minimum, I would hope that none of these classic arcade venues ever become almost obsolete in Japan like in many places in the world. I hope Japanese Arcade Venues continues to exist like such venues did in the 1970s and 1980s all the way from Wakkanai, Hokkaido to Naha, Okinawa as well as in neighboring Taiwan.

I hope the gentleman is okay and they catch this suspect and throw away the keys. I am wondering, why this specifc gentleman was targeted. There are so many apartments/condos and many units from within. Why would this suspect choose this specific residence and this specific individual???

Posted in: Man arrested for robbing elderly woman in her apartment See in context

I feel terrible for the woman. I really hope she recovers. It is a shock that this could ever occur in Japan because my understanding is that Japan, along with neighboring Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the World for anyone regardless of shape, size and gender. A total shock that this could occur in Japan.

There is NEVER an excuse to commit any kind of crime especially violent crime as the goal is for all of us to live in the image of God. That being stated, I am curious, if Masafumi Kurimoto has a job, why does he need to rob anyone!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Posted in: Police question 2 men over assault and robbery of woman in Sapporo See in context

It is an extreme shock that this sort of thing could occur in Japan especially in a rural area in Hokkaido. It is understood that Japan like Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world all the way from Wakkanai, Hokkaido, Japan to Naha, Okinawa, Japan where one has less worried regardless of gender as to being a victim of street crime.

Hopefully those two men will be subject to fill consequences and the woman will fully recover.

Posted in: 14-year-old boy arrested after stabbing woman at Hokkaido shopping center See in context

I feel terrible for the woman. I hope she recovers physically and mentally. That 14 year old parasite should receive the firing squad. The World is a better place without parasites.

It is a shock that this could ever occur in Japan especially in a small town in the middle of nowhere. It is understood that Japan like Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the World where one does not have to always look over their shoulders. I would think in a small town like Nemuro and Wakkani, something like this could never occur.

I really hope the woman is okay.

Posted in: Japan to ease quarantine rule to 3 days for business travelers See in context

And the quarantine for vaccinated residents will end... never”

14( +25 / -11 )

If they are concerned about Covid (assuming for one second it REALLY exists) then every traveler regardless of vaccination status should be tested. It is not fair to judge/target someone if they are not vaccinated. Everyone’s body is different. What if someone gets the vaccine because they are fearful of being grounded from traveling and then suffer a serious side effect???!!! Then what?????????????????????????????????????

A vaccine is NOT going to make anyone safer.

It is extremely unfair fir someone who is vaccinated to get special privileges

If restrictions are lifted for tourists, it should be all tourists regardless of vaccination status.

Japan please do not turn into Australia, New Zealand, Canada or certain cities in the USA such as New York City. Grounding someone like a kid who is misbehaving because they choose not to be vaccinated is unjust and extremely tyrannical. Please Japan, you are better than such places.
