Japanese media at best....there was never a let up, she was pressured beyond and more. I wonder when will Japan media starts to shut up. All hype as in she is God of the Hills. Let her enjoy the way she has been doing. She was extremely well before the nauseating media coverage started portraying her to be the best and absolute.

will the media keep their mouth shut? The girl is doing fine and is very competitive. I hate the media sometimes for making superwoman out of of her. How sick.
Let her enjoy and have fun. She is still on top of the world in terms of skii jumping. Title should say, she won silver not defeat. May the writer of this article try jumping a 4 feet slope and down into the crevice and freeze.

mom is a single mother, probably on welfare too as she is watching 2 small children. Under stress or what, she made a bad decision that could turn ugly. Sometimes children will challenge their parents, like maybe the mother said if you won't behave, I will let you out in the veranda naked and the child replied, yattemiro.
The mom will not get a jail time, just a reprimand. AICHI police are known for their lack of intervention and will just sweep the issue under the rug.

China needs distraction. The banks are running out of cash and having liquidity problems that they need to increase the borrowing rates for the 2nd time less than 6 months which means it is becoming a big problem. And japan keeps the common Chinese population in control. Though money is moving out from China fast silently even from Chinese investors.

last year was high because a bidder from HongKong China came and started jacking the price up but this Japanese did not want to be outbidded so the price became sky high...now China is running out of cash, last time in June and now this December and companies are having liquidity problems aka no cash so the price returned to normal because China can not afford to bid.

it is possible that the dad is looking at something else while the mom is looking after the kid and got distracted. The info never said both parents were together watching the kid when he vanished. There's a lot of scenario. But yes, here we go again with the superparents who can do everything at the same time. Can you come take care of my boy?

the mighty US have been pushing Japan to militarize as to free itself from the burden of keeping peace in the EAST ASIA region for so long. Even McArthur was surprised that the Japanese did not change their constitution outright when the US army left Japan. And because USA wrote the constitution and crippled the Japanese in defending their country, they were forced to protect it at the expense of American taxpayers...
I think the majority of Japanese are so tired of apologizing that they want to rearm themselves. Let it be. China and South Korea are nasty neighbors.

China is going to build the biggest memorial shrine to enshrine their past and present leaders who enslaved, tortured, massacred, and pillaged its people. Yasukuni shrine will pale in comparison. Hurray!!!

Except for Korea and China, no other countries who suffered under Japanese invasion are protesting and had never protested.
China and Korea's tie will not change anyway, its already bad as it is. If he doesn't go, its the same thing. So better it done and done with a flash.

my friend's daughter got hit by a car turning left last Sat. She was also crossing the road when the car made the turn without even slowing down. What is wrong with these drivers? POLICE are the problem. They will stop a foreigner with a bicycle while they trun a blind eye on these driving offenses.

china bully the weak, that's why it got angry when Philippines listed the help of Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and other southeast asian countries to met the growing imperialism of grat China. Japan, seeing this opportunity to regain its leadership role in Asia, it started lambasting China and stood with the countried being bullied by China through threat and intimidation.
China is more interested in controlling its population now that they are in transition of leadership plus the downturn of China's economy are the main reason it keeps on with its rhetoric. China is trying to divert the attention of its people from the growing chiasm of economic classes and the stagnation of its economy.
China will be balkanized the way it became a nation. Its just a matter of time.

The great China can't afford to go to war neither Japan nor the US but China does not seem to realize that targeting Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, and other countries it bullies into submission, they are creating a situation that they themselves can no longer control.
China is going down because manufacturing has hollowed out in China, the real estate bubble has burst, and China is in deep economic trouble. All this to mask, it has to divert the attention of its citizens to Japan which is an easy target.

the problem existed for how many years, DPJ kept on insisting that changes should be made then the unthinkable happened. DPJ won in the previous election. Then they stopped whining because they became recipients to the same flaw. Then the DPJ lost again with wide margins, then they again started whining and brought the issue to the supreme court....crazy country.
