Posted in: 'Mount Fuji convenience store' issues apology for bad tourist manners, adds multilingual signs See in context

How long before Japan bans tourism again like during lockdown?

Japan wants our money, but not us as tourists.

Japan is very tourist friendly, maybe even too friendly. In the last thirty years, Japan spent so much effort and money in revamping its infrastructure to accommodating non-Japanese speaking people. What other country has train systems that make announcements or have signs in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean. And you go to the tourist hot spots like the Odaiba, and a lot of the shop staff are able to speak some degree of English. So to say Japan doesn't want tourists is completely wrong. Japan puts a lot of effort into attracting and accommodating tourists

How...HOW...do you forget that there is another person in the car with you?? This is truly tragic at so many levels. The daughter having to live on knowing that the mother was responsible for her son's death. And the daughter's husband....holy moly, how will this marriage last?

Suspiciously sounds like the police trying to pin a cold case on an already convicted murderer just so that they can get credited for closing the case

Posted in: Decapitated man was involved in violent incident with suspect: mother See in context

Before we pass judgement, I would want more info on what the victim did to warrant such a brutal murder. He might have really pushed this woman over the edge of insanity to go as far as decapitating him.

Love hotels have a front desk to confirm who comes and leaves and probably multiple cameras at the entrance.

Some lovehos don't have a front desk, in the interest of giving the user as much anonymity as possible. They can just select a room from a menu, and then pay at payment machine in the room when they leave. Don't have to see or talk to anyone other than your partner.

If he is exonerated, he would have spent the majority of his life in prison as an innocent man, How is he expected to survive in the outside world? Its completely different from when he was free. If he is innocent, the government owes him BIG time.

The pigs were on their way to the slaughterhouse, so they didn't have much time left anyway

At Yosemite, they charge people if they have to be rescued. Sometimes these rescue missions can cost millions of dollars. If that's what tax payers are being charged every year to rescue these people who have no idea what they are doing, I am all for charging them for the rescue, rather than having tax payers front the bill

All you have to do is go on Youtube and search for "daeki tero" and you can find all kinds of disgusting crap people do at these kaiten sushi places. I personally stopped going after seeing a little boy sneeze all over a plate of sushi, and watch his mother do nothing about it

Posted in: ANA getting rid of large flight info monitors at security lines at Haneda's Terminal 2 See in context

I don't see the purpose of removing these FIDS monitors, and its a huge assumption on ANA's part that everyone is willing or able to install and check their app for flight information. Some people don't have smartphones in Japan, and as mentioned already, it kind of pain in the a** to pull out your phone to check flight, when you can just simple look up and see it on the screens.

Posted in: Watch where you're going See in context

Remember back in the days when train stations didn't have gates on the platforms. It's nearly impossible to do without them these days because so many people have their faces buried in their smart phones while walking. We would have people falling onto the tracks on a daily basis.

I think the real solution is to not allow people to this PERIOD. It's not only hazard to themselves but its a hazard to others too.

Posted in: Tokyo police to issue ‘red tickets’ to cyclists violating traffic laws See in context

I don't know what these "red tickets" are but the j-police really need to start fining reckless cyclist who don't follow basic traffic rules. And not just in Tokyo, this needs to happen everywhere.

I don't know how many times I nearly hit a cyclist or pedestrian for running red lights or stops signs, or riding on the wrong side of the road. But what really irrigates me to no end are mothers who carry their family on a single bike (one child on the back, one child on the front, and another baby strapped to the mother's chest or back. One wrong move, and you can kill an entire family.

how come he was in possession of a length of cord long enough and strong enough....

totally what I was thinking!! I smell a fish here. I think this guy was given the cord. Perhaps he was someone who knew something about a prominent figure. Suicide or strangulation??
