Interesting, this is the first negative press release I have seen of the Pixel.

What's up with all the hate towards the driver. Thank god we live in a country where people still trust each other.

This is a problem that will only increase here in Japan. It's one of the reasons why my wife wanted to move back from London so we can eventually care for her parents.

This could be the best thing for Sharp. They really lost their way in recent years.

I don't get the negative comments. Japan is not a country where people stick their neck out. This is a great move and due to their size and standing it is now much easier and acceptable for others to follow them. About time.

Some strange comments above, clearly from people with no real life experience on the matter.
Drug traffickers are there only to meet a demand. Regulate, educate and thus control is a much more effective method.
Last time I checked no drug dealers ever forced a user to buy.

I don't know about 9 days but I have been awake for 4 days and never done training so don't see that as being impossible for someone who has trained for years. As for food and water, people have done that around the world much longer during hunger strikes. The article also said the monk needed help walking.
Why you would do all these things is beyond me as it's a huge hit on your health as the body starts wasting away.

Judging by the comments I'm guessing no one here is actually married. I have experienced first hand several of these cases. Not that it matters as there is always a good reason why the woman is doing this...

This story clearly illustrates that people as individuals often try to do good but as soon as they represent a large group things go bad. This is why we need regulations to make sure people in power serve the people that elected then instead of playing these dumb power struggle games.

85k? is it made of gold? Why are smart devices so insane expensive or not even available in Japan?

A slap on the head seems to be normal and accepted here. I have had many arguments about this with my Japanese wife. There is no need, I simply place my hand on my child's head, big warm hand sends enough of a message.
I wish people were required a License before having kids.

Neither should be drilling. Japan is the land of the rising sun, stick solar on every roof top and never use fosile fuel again.

"the businessman quickly left as he smelled gasoline" I see a problem right there. If some dude was pouring gasoline on a train I was on I would hit the emergency button and try to grab the guy.

Bit of a side note but why do peyote live anywhere near a nuclear plant? I'm sure there were people living there before the power plant but I reckon many more moved there after it was build, why?

People like that make new puke. Guess the death penalty is not such a bad idea after all?

Bruinfan makes a great point. We often see this horror stories on JapanToday as the stories break but never a follow up when more details emerge.

Some of the comments above make me truly sad. I'm a white guy married to a Japanese girl and that was considered wrong not so long ago.
Two people going into a commitment to care for each other for the rest of their lives is something to be applauded and their gender should not be an issue.

I'm a Chiba resident and curios what's up with all these suicides here.

The poverty here is the biggest surprise I got when I moved here. The issue is not handing out more cash but rather fix the job situation. Almost everyone I know is struggling to survive on 1 income resulting in the full time parent taking a part time job just to make ends meet.

Sure hope this is true, if it's an April fools joke it would be a horrible one.

I think people forget that here in Japan there are a lot of earthquake and tsunami warnings and alarms. Most of not all do no require evacuation. Especially when you are 750 meters from the sea side.
Its very tragic but taking a school to court is not going to fix anything.

I'm confused why there are comments blaming the police? It is their job to uphold the law, these girls broke several and might have endangered the public that the police have to protect.
Of course this is tragic, let's use it as an example for young people that motorbikes are not toys.

America saying North Korea did this has nothing to do with action against north Korea and everything with what Obama said about regulating the Internet.
This whole thing is a white flag to take away or only free information tool.

Praise whoever that the death penalty is still in effect in Japan. This is one of those moments that it makes perfect crystal clear sense.

Posted in: The biggest challenge (for the new cabinet) is tackling the country's aging population and low birthrate. I'll push ahead with reforms to create a social security system reassuring everyone.
