The one really annoying habit is that she consistently makes more money than I do, sheesh the things we men put up with.

Brilliant and innovative costume design, who'd of ever though that short plaid ruffly skirts coupled with long leather boots would ever work together.

Interesting stereotyping going on here, I wonder if in the photo she was a frumpy woman in a wool pantsuit if all these assumptions would be being made. As it is, she seems not only quite comfortable with the way she looks seems far less of an airhead than some of the posters.

She's doing something to better herself, the life she can offer her child, and also helping others in similar situations, that of being a young single mother in Japan or a wife who doesn't want to conform to their peer perceived fate.

I say more power to her.

"anonymously sent letter bomb, which impels him to investigate a real mystery"

Though not incorrect, a curious use of the word impel when referring to opening a letter bomb.

Seems to be popular these days to write your autobiography in your twenties I guess it's somewhat akin to striking while the iron is hot. Who does actually read these things?

Not from this photo but in others strangely attractive, a refreshing change from the usual suspects, just wish she could sing a bit better to match her seemingly unstoppable and unending "chutzpah".

Posted in: 'Shallow-brained bureaucrats' crackdown on love hotels unlikely to thwart teen prostitution See in context

you guys don't know anything about Love. All you can think about is sex and which hotel is good for it. That is not love.

Well, first you may have noticed that it's not just "guys" posting on this topic. Oh course, we all know that sex is just that dirty incidental thing that happens between two people whereas love transcends all that and encompasses walks on the beach, candle lit dinners and in depth discussions of classic literature.

Sorry, but after 25 years of marriage I still lust after my wife in a carnal way, and our love has been through life's wringer of trials and tribulations but has held strong, so excuse us when we can't take the time out of our careers to jet off to some island paradise all the time (although that does happen), but we do make a point of utilizing love hotels once in a while to have a change of pace and unwind.

The only problem with love hotels for travel use is that you can´t walk in and out with a key.

Actually in many you can, if just one is going out (assuming you're there as a couple) the front desk will normally call up to the room to make sure there's nothing wrong with the other person. If you both want to take a stroll then they will ask the bill be paid to that point and perhaps a small deposit but will keep the room for you and will even give it a cleaning i.e. new sheets, towels etc. if you ask. They are very accommodating.

Ah, normality returns to Roppongi, all those people wondering where to meet in the interim can now get on their keitais and as heretofornow says arrange once again in front of ARmandos.

P.S. agree with goddog.

no, I don't but... maybe i am to conservative for love hotels.[sic]

What does conservatism have to do with love hotels? Perhaps their very name "love" hotels puts you off. At least in Japan there is an accepted reality that due to living conditions couples do on occasion need privacy. Yes, I'm sure there are some nefarious things going on in some cases, but surprisingly most patrons are couples who need a place to spend some alone time together. Love hotels offer a very nice alternative to the tawdry motels used in some countries.

I'm not getting at you but as someone who has stated to have never been to one then to paint pictures of viral HIV floating around makes me wonder if you take the subway and if you do then must cloak yourself in some kind of invisible shield to stave off everything supposedly in the air.

As far as the actual topic is concerned I believe that using the term "Shallow-brained bureaucrats" is overstating the obvious.

if you imagine all the drity [sic] things the previous couples have done in the same hotel room before you.

You mean those dirty things involving coitus and other forms of sexual pleasure, how dastardly.

Not so different than the local sento or a normal hotel room even if it is rated 5 stars. Not sure I'd be able to come up with a smooth enough line to entice someone into the bar toilet though, perhaps you could share some of your better ones.

These days, the good love hotels are full service, full internet access, saunas, huge jet baths, showers with unlimited hot water, and queen sized beds with fresh starched crisp sheets and at a third or less the cost of the average hotel chain. A word to the wise, room service should be avoided, however deliveries are accepted at most of them so you can always order in your favorite pizza, bowl of steaming ramen or even from the local sushi place, all depends on your mood.

Probably the best invention to come out of Japan; so practical. I'm with elbudamexicano on this one.

Now, as to the topic, are they fronts for teenage sex and prostitution, well, as mentioned by previous commenter's teenage sex is not always orchestrated in a planned way so behind the bush in a park is probably as common as any, and as for prostitution, they make more money working the standard hotels who just happen to turn a blind eye to interestingly dressed visitors going up to guests rooms. Yes you can order a hooker to your room when staying at all the "name" hotels in Tokyo including all the five star establishments.

In closing, the majority of both love hotels and regular hotels are wary of renting to underage persons and do screen "visitors" at the desk for this level, its not quite as open a season as the venerable Shukan post would have you believe.

@Ranger_Miffy

What if these bar/club ladies were your daughters? You men should really be ashamed...

Actually I'd be quite upset with her, if I've told her once I've told her a thousand times to double check the license of the club before flashing her knickers.

I wonder if this was an undercover operation and if so how many times the plods had to visit on surveillance to make sure that the license code was being broken, (on our tax money of course).

Pretty poor miniature sculpture/casting, no detail at all, I wonder if it wasn't for the fact it's gold if it would attract any attention. Lots of small jeweler/craftsmen here that produce far more intricate and detailed work but usually are limited to working with silver.

Posted in: S Korea boost security after North warns of more attacks See in context

I think all of this started over breakfast a weekend or so ago. While slurping peaches and brandy Kim the elder said, "So son, are you ready for some fun next week"?

"Sure dad, what are we going to do?"

"Well we've been out of the news for a while. so I thought we'd lob some shells into the south"

"Gee dad, that does sound like fun, can I bring my school friends over to watch as we push the buttons?"

"No problem, we'll make a party out of it, then watch as the rest of the world hasn't a clue as to how to deal with us".

Not exactly Robin Hood is he? Anyone who has ever had their house invaded by this kind of creep, coming home and finding that things you've cherished have disappeared will not appreciate this book or the seaming impunity he is getting. Suggest that the publishers be held accountable for this mockery of justice.

I do not like thieves.

Posted in: Tokyo remains top gourmet city in Michelin Guide See in context

Lots of great restaurants all over (Japan and elsewhere) that don't come onto the Michelin radar. My favorite is a little place in Koishikawa, it's brilliant, haven't been shown a menu in years, just talk directly with the chef and work out a combination of what he feels like making and what I feel like eating, never been disappointed, and unless you really dig into the wine list, quite affordable often < 3,000 yen for dinner (with the house wine).

What the article doesn't tell is that it took four police sergeants overnight to lay out all the panties in preparation of the morning photos. They emerged from the evidence room with sheepish grins on their faces.
