That was tragedy unparalleld. Sakamoto Ryu also lost his life in that crash.
Sakamoto Ryu is alive and well, Sakamoto Kyu was killed in the 'plane crash.

For clarity, in Japan the legal limit is BrAC 0.15 mg/L (equivalent to 0.03%) but, and this is a big but, if the police decide that alcohol was a contributing factor in an incident then the driver will be prosecuted for DUI whatever his/her alcohol level therefore, for all practical purposes, the limit is zero.

I wonder why she left her passport in the hotel when as a tourist she is required to carry it?

The new legislation speaks of Israel as the historic homeland of the Jews and says they have a "unique" right to self-determination there.

Two days ago I was in one of the community centres sheltering 300 people near Kurashiki after delivering a truckload of food from a local charity. The volunteers there, particularly the younger ones, and the local officials, are doing a fantastic job in very difficult conditions and I take my hat off to them.
However, for the people stuck there who last week were living in their own houses life is difficult. Just imagine yourselves for one moment living in a 2 or 3 square metre space separated from your neighbours by only a white sheet hanging on a makeshift frame with nothing much to do except worry about your friends and family and it's easy to understand why some people are feeling stressed and worse.

During a massive occupation protest in 2014, Murakami sent a message of encouragement to Hong Kong's pro-democracy protesters, who staged a 79-day demonstration against what was said to be an undemocratic election reform plan China had drafted for Hong Kong.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's security minister on Thursday dismissed a report that police have identified several Russians who were behind the poisoning of former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal as "wild speculation".
"I think this story belongs in the ill informed and wild speculation folder" Ben Wallace said in response to the Press Association report.

French police fired tear gas and dispersed crowds from the Champs Elysees late on Sunday after clashes with a small group of unruly fans threatened to spoil celebrations of France's World Cup win over Croatia in Moscow.
But as the evening wore on, a small number of fans clashed with police, damaging some businesses and properties along the Champs Elysees.
Some threw stones and other projectiles at riot police who responded with teargas.

The man in the second photo is throwing away a plastic 'riser' block, normally used at the edge of the road to allow a car to roll smoothly into the homeowner's driveway. They don't wear out, so why throw it away?
Probably because it washed up on his property from far away and he doesn't need it.
