There is definitely some kind of climate change taking place. For instance right here in Northern Minnesota so far this summer we have had an unprecedented amount of hot weather and high humidity resulting in numerous heavy rains and flooding.

When I was in Japan about 25 years ago, I remember drinking "CALPIS" a fermented milk drink over ice, it tasted great!

It's a great idea. Now if they would have more drinking establishments that cater to Foreigners it would be awesome! When I was stationed in Japan about 20 years ago, many establishments had a sign on their door saying "JAPANESE ONLY"! Maybe that has changed over the years, I hope so.

I'm from Minnesota and these types of accidents are quite common. Here you have to have a valid drivers license, wear a helmet and successfully complete a SNOWMOBILE SAFETY training seminar. Also a lot of these accidents are a result of too much speed and use of alcohol. I hope these folks have a speedy recovery!

Here we go again! I am rather new to this site, is this a pretty common occurrence in Japan? It seems at least once or twice a month this happens! My prayers go out to the family.

How sad! It's too bad this woman could not get help earlier! I am sure there is plenty of help in Japan if one looks for it.

The driver used very poor judgement, I think the suspension is warranted, if he is caught again,"SAYONARA"!
