Part of the problem lies in the fact that power lines in Japan are largely above ground.

Which in 2019 is ridiculous for a developed country.

As per my understanding it is done for safety purposes. Japanese well known issue.. Japanese Husband and friends said so.

"Matsumoto said he wanted to kill her and then himself so they could live together in heaven." in the very first moment he had sent that message, the police should have done something and sent him to the psychiatric. Geez.. mad people everywhere :( RIP Imura-san.

But kids back then never thought about killing themselves. I don't know where that came from. Was in japanese anime influenced or something?

Look... for your information, I am from Uruguay... nothing to do with Japan, ok? but at the age of 11/12 I remember I used to cry everyday, and then thought "I should be dead...". My only "happy" moment was when I came back home, and then sleep... I never wanted to wake up, all day I was daydreaming because I could be happy in my own world. Now I look back to those times, and I think "I could be dead". When people bully you all the time, when they call you very bad things, even members of your family (mother) laughs at your face or hit you without any reason, classmates do the same, teachers don't do their proper job (take care of their children, not only "teach" from textbooks), nobody protects you, no friends, no adults around you in those moments, only feel loneliness... so what reason do you have to exist? to "live" the life as everybody says.. "Oh yeah, life is awesome!" ... well, let me tell you something, it is NOT awesome when at that short age you suffer as you were in an eternal jail of hate. So before saying something to those who prefer "killing themselves", try to think about what is happening with them, about their lives, what and who surrounds them, etc. Maybe there you may find many sad reasons....

I encourage people to change their minds towards this topic, since it doesn't have frontiers, sadly it is in the human nature to threat the weak and shy... so children needs our help, both the bullies and those who suffer bullying attacks. (sorry for my bad English if you've noticed mistakes, as you may know my mother tongue is Spanish)

Posted in: Japanese women list their foreign husbands’ odd behavior See in context

“My British husband loves cockroaches (they don’t have them in Britain, apparently). ‘What a beauty!’ he says, when he sees one. ‘How can such a wonderful creature be so hated?’”

very touching. Cute daughter. That father must be very pride and happy. Hope he can recover soon. And the hospital staff must be very happy too. I wish I can read more stories like this. This is an example of what love can do.

@Disillusioned: "bullying this kid went through is normal behavior for boys at that age"

what?? that is NOT normal, not in boys, neither girls...

excuse me, but bullying is part of girls world too for ex.. but neither nobody cares. I had been bullied too, not physical, but psychologically a lot, from 8 to 14 years old.. and with just 11 years old always thinking of suicide, not very happy memories, are they? Ok, I'm stronger now, I have my own scars till now, but nice, congratulations for me.. But if it all could be different? I understand that little poor kid (RIP) as if it were my own story. Most kids show themselves shy about telling this things to their parents, so did I, because sometimes make things worse. The people who should be taking care of this things more is the teachers (they should teach about denouncing bullying attitude and punish bullies correctly), principal, school psychologists, etc. If you think bullying is part of growing up, in my humble opinion, you're soooo wrong. This kind of things make the world a worse place, you know? That kid didn't deserve that.. and again, if you didn't know before: but everybody is different.

PS: I live in Uruguay... but this kind of things are worldwide problems, is the same everywhere. We should teach kids/teenagers best, and high/schools should be prepared more, they can NOT ignore this things any more.
