Of course, everybody knows that the only reason that the LDP would vote
this is because the tobacco companies are lining their pockets. They don't care
about the people, they only care about their own pockets.
Why aren't the names of those that voted it down announced. Let's vote them out
and investigate their bank accounts and savings.

Vote those LDP Members out now!!!
Everybody needs to post this on their Facebook and make it
go viral against them.

177 is a bit excessive for research, don't you think?
Not just a bit, it is extremely excessive.

Sorry but there is no Halloween Season. Halloween is one day.
We take in stride amusement parks extending their own Halloween Season
if you would.
However, that would mean October.
In addition, what in the world is it with people dressing up as everything that
has nothing to do with Halloween? It is absolutely ridiculous.
Christmas is in December. Not the second Halloween ends. Yet over the
last few years, Department stores take down their Halloween items and put
up Christmas immediately.
I think that they are all taking advantage and making it to much into a business.

Why in the world does the writer refer to this guy as a 38 year old "woman"? Then go on to keep referring as him as "she".

Doctors are in on it with TEPCO and the government to try to cover up. I don't care what these doctors, TEPCO or the government say, these children have this cancer one way or another because of that plant and it's high time to take responsibility for it. These doctors are forced to say such things or risk their own careers.
Koichi Tanigawa and Akira Ohtsuru are real jerks for going along with this mislead.
With all said and done, how about this challenge, Koichi Tanigawa and Akira Ohtsuru, TEPCO top management and the government officials that are at the top and responsible, move yourselves and your family members back to ground zero or just around the facility. What will your excuse be not to take this challenge?

"If a police officer asks for your ID, you are legally obligated to show it." WRONG. You are not obligated to show it unless they have probable cause. An officer has the right to ask you but you also have the right to refuse. Penal Code Article 194.

You know it tears my heart about when I see what is happening over there. However, I don't like the idea of Japan opening their doors to them. If Japan wants to give money and housing elsewhere than so be it. As bad as I feel for them, I see opening the doors to them creating major problems in years to come for Japan. American and Europe have seen these problems. They don't deal with these problems well but continue to accept them. Please let these countries take them in and God knows, I hope that they do to help them.

This was not a stupid mistake. They broke in. If more countries had laws like Singapore, maybe there would be fewer crimes in those countries as well. I will bet that these two don't go around breaking in and spray painting again. They deserve what they are getting.

Just because America is allowing this doesn't mean that Shibuya should. In fact, they should close the door before what happened in parts of the states disrupt the beauty of Japan.

The tests should not be made easier for them. Would you want a foreign nurse misunderstanding the instructions that were given to her in kanji or the medicine that was written to your loved ones? Either pass the test or don't pass it.

I see, it's alright to let these kids watch violence on TV but not to be shown this. Support the teacher.

Why does the writer refer Matsuko Deluxe as "she". I don't care what he wears, he is still a "he". I am not at all a fan of AKB48. But I don't really think that it would be an embarrassment for them to open the Olympics. What would be embarrassing is if Matsuko Deluxe had anything to do with the Olympics. That being said, I do think that there are better options than AKB48. And it does not have to be the number 1 talent or singers that we see on a daily basis.

Abe san had better stick to his guns and don't give into ISIS. These two idiots should not have been over there anyways. If Abe san gives in even behind the scenes and secretly, he puts all Japanese in danger. Not only when they travel but here in Japan as well. It also makes me wonder if it puts foreigners that live here in Japan in danger as well. That is another subject.

Too many times I see articles to the world about low wages. But what they don't tell the world is that that particular wage in that particular country is a lot of money. If somebody is going to write such an article, don't make a company look bad because you "think" that salary is low when you compare it to your own. Check your facts.

Stress??? This is getting to be too much with stories like this. Take these people to the public square, do the same to them and televise it. Make sure that other crappy parents see this and think twice before doing such a thing.

Another one that I hate is when you will be conversing for about 5 minutes in only Japanese and at that point, the Japanese will ask you "Do you speak Japanese?" I will always ask them, "what language have we been speaking in up until now?"

Japan Today removed my last comment because I said something about Capital Punishment.

They need to bring back capital punishment in a very serious way and do it in public and show it on TV so that other potential criminals think twice. This is absolutely disgusting.

When I first moved to Tokyo 27 years ago, there was also one space in the middle of the long seats where everybody else sat that was reserved for the elderly, pregnant, etc. This is now gone. Still the seats that are allocated for them, nobody sat there unless they fell into that category, even during rush hour. Now people sit there and simply ignore the elderly, pregnant and others that need the seat. People simply should not sit there at all unless they fall into that category and JR and other lines should enforce this.
