There's nothing wrong with black humour, isn't it covered under freedom of speech? If the Japanese media (including JT) thinks this would be offensive to people in Japan, then why report it? I'm pretty sure most people living in Japan don't watch much French TV.

Not much of an overreaction, demonstrators nearby had radiation metres showing values of over 0.6, that's high enough to be concerned.

Not only that, but especially in Japan it is not natural froth at the top of beer. They pour the draught beer to a certain level, then push the tap the other way to create the head..."Awa sukoshi kudosai"...best Japanese I've ever learned.

Sounds more like a rear naked choke than a headlock.

Good on Osaka to take a baby step here, but that's what it is -- a baby step.

Well done to JT for acknowledging the one-sided view of history displayed in Japan.

Hikozaemon - Of course they used The Cove to generate publicity, but I cannot honestly say that they set out to portray the people of Taiji as 'gangsters', they were very clear in showing that the people in the movie were the fishermen or city officials and therefore obviously had vested interests in stopping the filming of the activities, and they were not the average person on the street. And I think when the people of Taiji see the movie they will be somewhat shocked at the practise that is part of their 'heritage'.
