Posted in: Koike says 2020 Olympics can be springboard to transform Tokyo See in context

I just returned from my 5th or 6th trip to Japan. I love Japan just the way it is. Of course this is the perspective of a visitor. My concern is Tokyo will be overrun by hordes of tourist. When I'm strolling around Japan and I see a bunch of tourist, I try to stay as far as possible from them.

I refuse to ride with a driver that is a senior. All you have to do is look at some of their cars to understand why. Dings, scratches broken outside mirrors. Add to that some are hard of hearing and have poor eyesight.

Eye for an eye. Maybe harsh punishment doesn't deter crime, but if this creep got a few whacks it would make me feel better.

You'll be reading about this lowlife again in the future.

That lady looks like someone from Kyushu who went on vacation and didn't know the first thing about packing for winter.

Well, she does have a camera.

Just think if he had used his commanding officer's shower. He would be hanging from the nearest yardarm.

"But he owned all those weapons and yet he still didn't hurt anyone with them... hmmm."

Last year a loony shot up Las Vegas from his hotel room. The weapons he used were all legally registered to him.

I'm getting a little concerned here about the behavior of these pilots.

Makes me wonder about US pilots and no doubt about Russian pilots.

Posted in: We try a pay-to-use premium Japanese toilet at Ikebukuro train station in Tokyo See in context

Actually, I find the toilets in Japan to be quite acceptable. Here in Honolulu, trying to find a free toilet is virtually impossible. Fast food joints either want you to buy something or they just plain don't let you use them. Restaurants that don't serve alcohol, don't have to provide bathrooms. It's the law here in Hawaii.

Thank God for Walmart in the downtown area.
