Japan is certainly an uncivilized society when it comes to the care of their children.

How the hell does a one year old get hit by a car? It is due to the negligence of the mother and the driver of the car. Not enough care and attention is given to children in regards to traffic safety in this country. I always see kids bouncing around inside cars in front of me when they should be restrained by seat belts. I also see kids playing on or near the roads with as little regard for their safety as the drivers on the road next to them. Driving in this country is a nightmare and I have never seen such careless and selfish drivers in my life. This story echos an incident in China where a two year old was killed by a car just outside the front door of her house. I expect a story like this from China but not Japan which is rated as a first world country yet after living here for the past six years I feel it is anything but due to it's incredible lack of caring for children. There have already been several cases of children being killed by their parents here this year already. I have seen many children left unattended in cars at the supermarket or the hundred yen store and have been constantly subjected to the cries of Mama mama while at the supermarket while some little boy or girl desperately looks for their mother. They stand in the middle of the store yelling and crying for what seems like forever for the rest of us shoppers and I wonder why the mother hadn't noticed that her child is missing nor can she hear it's call. It amazes me that people can be so selfish as to not pay attention to their child crying alone in the middle of a supermarket.

Posted in: Two men taken to hospital after smoking 'legal herbs' See in context

Herb shops abound throughout Japan , more than 100000 of them. They sell three gram packages of "herb" for three thousand -6000 yen each. The result of smoking it has a similar effect to smoking marijuana. I think many who try it are surprised by it's strength and therefore freak out when they get too high.

He looks as stupid as everyone esle in this country that wears one of those eye patches in public. Didn't they show pirate movies in Japan? If you have to wear an eyepatch then at least wear a pirate one.

Posted in: Mother cycling with 2 daughters run over at crossing; both children die See in context

Gunma drivers have got to be the worst in Japan. I have been driving since the day I got here six years ago and I am constantly surprised by the selflessness of the majority of drivers. I have seen far too many close calls and near misses to even begin to think how many exactly. I have driven on route 354 in Tatebayashi and I know how crazy people drive on that road. This is a very terrible thing to have happened and I don't think it mattered at all if the mother had two children on her bike and they weren't wearing helmets. Bicycles are an essential mode of transportation in Gunma as there is very little public transit service and is costly when used. She was crossing a road at a pedestrian crossing and was struck and her children were killed. Drivers here are so terrible and the older drivers are the worst of the worst. They drive slow most of the time but always gun it at the intersections and run the red light. They are most dangerous in their total disregard of any of the established traffic rules. They drive as if the road is their own personal property and all others around them are intruding and should be treated as hostiles. Unfortunately, this young family was treated as such. 'I tried to swerve', the man said as he was arrested. Swerve my ass! You shouldn't have been driving in the first place.
