Definitely best city I've been to. Much better than Melbourne which was laughingly called world's most livable city.

Is this light sentence because he killed "foreigners' or because they think there was a manslaughter element to it all?
I don't see how there can be any possibilty of a manslaughter element. Apparently this is the maximum they give for this sort of thing, yet far harsher penalties for much lesser crimes.

Astonishing greed from a bunch of opportunists. Where do they think that money will come from?

Don't see how this is Trump's fault. Why not blame everyone who preceded him as well if that's your argument. Also any security gaurd who refuses to provide security should not be doing that job.

To the people complaining about the compensation being too low.. where do you think this money comes from? Some magical money tree?

The reason the West has gone to hell is there is zero disciplining of delinquents.

He sounds like a creep regardless, trying to kiss someone he only just met. You might get away with it in a Brazilian night club at 3am, but not a Japanese train..

There are ATM's everywhere for foreigners to withdraw cash. Many Japanese enjoy smoking, so putting up with a little passive smoke won't kill you believe it or not. It's not so long ago the west wasn't hysterical over smoking as well. There are already plenty of signs in English, and all trains have announcements in English. The only thing I agree with here is more trash cans. Stop trying to westernize the world. Japan is great the way it is.

precious little over sensitive jerks wringing their hands over absolutely nothing as usual. This generation of weak over sensitive idiots is what is pathetic.

Even though I'd be the first to move there, I hope they don't allow immigration. Japan is so amazing I'd hate to see it diluted by other cultures.

I hope they never ban it. The world has enough stupid laws already and Japan is one of the few places left where you don't need the government telling people what to do with every little aspect of their lives. As for those moronic graphic images they want placed on cigarette packets, they don't work, they're fake anyway, and the truth is all disease starts in the mind, so it's these very images and warnings that plant the seed of disease. Ironic huh?
