Thankfully it isn't a road, but a route by trains, cablecars and buses through the mountains.

Far fewer eyesores, much less litter, no pachinko.

Went during the colder weather. Cool grounds and a good trek around the paths - easy to get lost in ; )

Driving out, the wild piglets we saw near the exit were totally unfazed by our presence. Worth the visit for views over Tokyo Bay (Fuji too, if it's clear).

Enjoy it alongside a cup of sake and you are sure to feel like you are enjoying authentic Chinese food

Cheesy advertorials: once you flop you just can't stop.

The food is processed beyond recognition, so why not take out human interaction altogether?

Oh, that's right, the battery chicken comes from somewhere where people are cheaper than machines.

I wouldn't be surprised if Wang Yi licked the back of his hand and started grooming himself. Motegi, as ever, looks like the construction worker-got-lucky.

Hamasaki said she was coerced by her ex-boyfriend to film the girls

So naturally we released her name.

On the Japanese surname...

Something no self respecting Brit would ever do

but littering's fine? My heart always sank when, after driving trips on the Continent, I'd get off the ferry and see so much rubbish thrown nilly willy. Japan's not much better, mind you: uchi/soto applies to geography, too.

The name seems Japanese not British.

Is this the 19th century?

If this recycled chocolate is shipped from Japan to Belgium and back again, how is that sustainable?

A portion of proceeds are donated to food kitchens

But we won't tell you how much.

Cue "We are the world..."

OK, so your favourite member of PTQ47 leaves the band and you're so heartbroken you can't function. Bottle it up for a week and then take one off?

In case you missed it. @Mickelicious.

Oh I saw it OK.

The bigger picture is two sets of children brainwashed to worship flags. Salute the flag, die for the flag, and your loved ones get the ultimate patriotic souvenir of the flag off your coffin. Hurrah, what an honour!

The whole thing offers exceptional shareholder value for the military-industrial complex. While you're seeing bogeymen from behind your Nitori curtains (nice colour, by the way), assorted spooks and all their buddies are busy in their gated communities concocting new threats to pay for their trophy homes and private schools.

Oh, and kindly keep your gang slogans to yourself. Thank you.
