ItsMe - He is obviously sponsored. The name of the boat has "BMW" in it. I'm sure that he also got money from whichever Japanese channel will put on a big 2 hour special about his journey.

Don't you people understand? TEPCO doesn't even have the money to pay this meager compensation.

Japan’s cabinet last week approved a bill to help TEPCO meet the massive costs, and parliamentary approval is pending. It would establish a fund from public money and contributions from utilities and special government bonds.

public money = your tax money, contributions from utilities = money you paid to other electric companies

TEPCO never had the funds or the insurance to deal with a crisis like this, so the good 'ol taxpayer will be screwed again.

That is rafting company called Happy Raft. I did rafting and something called canyoning with them a few years ago. Good times! I think it is owned by an Aussie and the guides are both Japanese and foreigners. They were pretty safety conscious from what I remember.
