They have certainly had more than their fair share of catastrophes in Kumamoto... and they're still being battered by the elements... They should adopt the Paris motto : "Il est battu par les vagues mais ne sombre pas..." (Rough translation : "Battered by the waves, she doesn't sink")

My dog NEVER pooped on the pavements, only on the earth in the parks where I buried it and the trees and flowers "thanked us" ! (Must've been his "Police Training" !)

Bernie O'Mahony

They even know what a "Koban" is in France...

Not everyone who reads JT knows Japanese or what a koban is.

This is why many prefer to put their old parents in care centers.

...of which there are not nearly enough and those that do exist sometimes don't take such good care of their residents...

If I go to the same store, and steal the same thing, will I be let off the hook?

If you can prove you're really hungry, and without means to pay...

RIP young girl.

I wonder however what is the age for driving license here? I know in US is 16 and thought here is 18 or am I wrong?

The young girl was on a BICYCLE... there's NO age limit for that...

She makes an allegation and you all take it as truth. All violence is wrong.

Unfortunately, many people don't "believe" such things happen... I can vouch that they do... and of course, all violence is wrong.

"Japan is vulnerable to earthquakes, but building standards are the strictest in the world,"

I guess that's why they're having to completely recontruct a bunch of fairly new apartments - that were all "tilting" - not far from our place here in Yokohama...

Didn't know that wheelchairs and prams were allowed on escalators.

They're NOT - and there are big signs on them saying so.

One of the "tanks" looks very much like a special "bottle" for male patients at the hospital...

I also feel sorry for the poor fish - no friends, no space and stark lighting all the time...
