I can’t see why they have to make it so hard for women to have access to this.

More “build it and they will come” logic. Throwing money at these kinds of problems doesn’t work. History has proven that over and over again.

The items and the cash are all insured. It’s not worth risking your life to defend them. This suspender wearing fella with the polearm is lucky they didn’t have guns or the outcome could have been a lot different. Just give them what they need and get them out of the store.

It’s quite probable he didn’t know what to do although, it’s more likely he could afford to live without his father’s pension. The city hall will arrange a funeral for ¥40,000 and let them pay it off so his excuse is a lie.

Japan makes some great whiskey. It also makes some horrid stuff, particularly Black Nikka.

This comes from a man who has slept in a seperate room to his wife for 30 years …
Well, that arrangement has obviously worked for them for 30 years. In the U.S., one in five couples sleep in separate bedrooms, mostly because of snoring or conflicting schedules. And I would guess that committed couples in Japan are far more likely to sleep in separate beds/futons than their Western counterparts.
In fact, according to studies by Hideki Kobayashi, a graduate professor of engineering at Chiba University. 26 percent of married couples living in Tokyo-area condominiums sleep in separate rooms. Kobayashi also claims that four out of ten married couples over 60 don’t share a bed, and that 53 percent of spouses whose children have moved out prefer to sleep solo.
Kobayashi’s research was published over a decade ago, but I suspect Japanese society hasn’t changed much in this regard.

Blaming China is based on speculation. It could be any one of a hundred cyber criminal syndicates.

This stuff is dangerous and has been abused in Japan since the early 2000’s. It is a chemical concoction that causes many dangerous side effects. It’s about time they made it illegal.

This should be his offense not his defense.

My wife and I were some of them although, she is Japanese and I’m not sure if she would be counted as a visitor.

The station wagon overturned, and the boy was crushed underneath the car.
So, he mustn’t have been in a child safety seat as they are supposed to be at two years old. Why is this not mentioned in the article?

Isn’t he going to Disneyland too?

I have to agree that firing a shot into the air in a residential area is not good protocol. I’m a bit curious about where his ‘right flank’ is too. I’m guessing he hit him in the stomach at least 30cm above his leg. It doesn’t state how far away he was either. As much as they state it was appropriate policing it seems like there were quite a few mistakes made.

I stayed just near there on holidays a couple of weeks ago. I’m gonna guess this was not a random attack. There must be a lot more to this murder.

News update: She has been charged with three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder for the mushroom stew incident and a further four counts of attempted murder going back over two years. It seems she’s been trying to kill her family off for a few years.

The police are doing forensic testing on a food dehydrator found in the bushland near their home that they suspect she used to prepare the poisonous mushrooms for the stew.

The yen doesn’t have any real value anymore, as is reflected in the stock market. Japan doesn’t have an economy that foreign investors want to participate in. They are investing in countries with strong economies like China. Japan doesn’t have the manufacturing strength it has twenty or thirty years ago. Even the bigger Japanese companies are manufacturing in other countries these days. Japan needs to stop playing the stock market and rebuild its domestic economy. Japanese people are going broke while the government plays pachinko with their money.

It was an exceptionally hot summer in Japan this year. People have to be educated on how to avoid heat stroke in the humid summer months. It’s not just dehydration. It’s also the exposure overheating your body. Drinking green tea is a bad idea because it is a diuretic and can dehydrate you even more.

¥40,000 is just a number. Further down the article it states ¥20,000. Just more vote grubbing hollow pledges from the LDP. It’ll be the same as Abe’s financial pledges. Corporations will get tax cuts and the minions will get nothing.
