Do they mean Kokura Station? Don't remember an Ogura Station when I lived there, and there are loads of pachinko parlours near Kokura station...translation error?

What? You can't strangle yourself to death. How did that happen?

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.

Posted in: Japanese beer heads cause Westerners to froth at the mouth See in context

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.

@Smithinjapan...C'mon man...'baby steps'...that's in poor taste ;)

No burglar alarms or security cameras? In this day and age? Surely that will void their insurance...no?

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

I'm usually a beer snob, but it's not half bad...unlike the entirely undrinkable 'fake beer' that is so popular over here.

Surely that is a no-brainer for both the government and the farmers.

Posted in: 'Cove' director gives free DVDs to Taiji residents See in context

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'.

The idea that he is 'saving her' seems somewhat theatrical, jforce has a point, teenagers aren't saints...they're teenagers, this is when we learn from 'mistakes'.
