Posted in: A helping hand from Ono See in context

The charity angle is a great idea. But, I imagine people would pay more for her to stop singing.

I went to Kyoto once, but did not see the protocol. It was not marked on any of the tourist maps.

Who ever heard of a green car nation? A pink car nation, or a white car nation, sure. But green must be an hybrid.

Is anything "excessive" if it saves a little life?

Posted in: 3-year-old boy falls to death from apartment balcony in Tokyo See in context

I am so tired of reading reports just like this one in JT. Ok, I don't live in a 13th floor apartment, and I don't have a 3 yo child. But surely a couple of metres of chicken wire (that's what we call it in OZ) would be cheap solution for preventing these tragedies.

Posted in: Wild boar enters home in Motegi; injures resident See in context

The boar got away. Really? There can only be one conclusion...it was a cabbage loving midget dressed as a boar, who quickly changed costumes, thus escaping detection. I should apply for a job with the Japanese police.

Posted in: Nozomi Ohashi sparkles at Takashimaya Nihonbashi Christmas event See in context

Her name is Nozomi. My Japanese is not so good, but I think it means she is very fast and stops infrequently.
