Didnt anyone read the commet that it is Obon now and everyone is out and about going back home and then coming back. Unlike weston countries the Japanese only have a few days to spend with familys then they have to go back to work, and it is common for familys to travel at night.

I have to agree with the comments that no matter the fault the driver is always to blame and will pay. I see it every day with bikes and everything!

Number 11 gesture I have never seen and I am an English man.

Number 10 is wrong as Probie wrote. The sign used to be done by longbowman to signify that they still have the two fingers to shoot there bows, and a way of mocking the enemy.

I have 16 tatoos on my body and none are visable unless I go shirtless..... I worked for a man who once said I had to wear long slive jumpers in the summer just incase they pocked out, I told him to get on his bike! Now I run my own buisness and I wear a T-Shirt when it is hot and no one (Japanese customers) say anything.

This Mayor has issues with his past and needs to deal with them!

If the boy was really watching the eclipse as stated then the parents are stupid for leaving a 2 year old by himself at an open window. And the comment about the angle of the window gets added to the stupid list of today.

I am a father of three and I see "shockingly stupid" parents every day on my travels to and from work. I am a driver as well and I wouldnt even let my children be in the yard without another adult there and I wouldnt even move the car unless I could see them.

Another victim of family breakdown. Where was his natural father?

These remarks do my head in... My brother has two children that are not his own, his a great father and has made a life with their mother. THe family is a unit of six so take your guess to what that means and dont gudge all men who are in relationships who are not the real fathers!

Posted in: Things that foreigners find annoying about life in Japan See in context

What gets me is this;

The endless giving of crap from relatives when the dont wont such things anymore.

Was given another hot-plate the other day from my wifes grandfather as he didnt want it anymore and believed we needed another. I will add it to the collection of the otehr two we have.

To throw things away in this country is my number one problem.

According to police, Ito—who is married—encouraged the woman he was dating to use the drops.

So the child is not his own if I read this correctly?

If I was giving something to my son which was prescribed by a doctor and was causing serisous discomfort I would have gone back to the docotor and found out why!

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

I agree that it is a very tragic matter, but it is a full round circle here... drivers drive insanely and cyclists ride insanely as well.

I am a driver and I have to deal with crazy drives, of all ages, on a daily bases and riders to boot. When I drive I have to at least use my horn twice on my journey to and from work. I get cyclist dive out into the road when they want to go around people, with and against the flow of traffic. To which I have to slam on my brakes because there is room for them and I can’t move because there is a driver beside. Then I pray that the driver behind doesn’t smash into me as he wants to go 10 times faster than the speed limit!

I have nearly clipped parents with children on their bikes as they seems to love to over-hang the crossings and I have come to a complete stop on a 50mph road as a rider doesn’t care about his surroundings and is too busy playing with his mobile phone.

There is so much more I can write but it would turn into a 10 page book.

Driving here is one of the most dangerous tasks I have to deal with.

@ben4short i have no problem with the artistic rights or any thing else that this man wants to do with his time.... all I am saying is that it has not been long since the court judgemnt was given and not even a year sice that book was released. The artist wants a quick way to become rich and famous and to me it is a cheap shot at best.... if he really cared about the victims family he would have waited a few years!

Thats all

Being British myself I can’t understand why someone would won’t to create a movie on this! And after going to the actor/directors site it appears that this will be his, "Dean Fujioka", debut movie as a director!!

Utter disgrace to victim’s family, and I like some of the ideas that we should picket the cinemas when it is released!!

Posted in: 5-year-old boy playing in street dies after being run over by car See in context

Zichi I agree with what you have written I drive everyday and what I see of some car drivers is beyond belief!

All I want to say is I wish new and older parents teach their children basic road safety, and I also wish that drivers would stop tailgating me when I am driving at the speed limit, and if I dont go 5 or 10 over I wish I they would stop beeping me, hahaha

I know 100% that not everyone is like what I have written, but the numbers is a bit high for my liking to what I see everyday.

I will stop now as I am on my lunch break and should eat!!

It is fine if you cross 10 roads or even 100 roads if you follow the basic rules, stop at the red light, look left and right. Stop at a crossing and check if it is safe, and not walk out if you see a car, big truck or busing coming.

I live in Japan and what I have seen is nothing to the above! I havent seen any children stop at lights, even when they are green, to check to see if it is safe. I havent seen any children slow down when they take corners on their bikes!

Yes, every country has stupid people who for some reason cant follow the basic rules! But, I have never said that Japan is the only country with this problem, all I am saying that it is a bit higher here than my home country and with the new parents these days.

And to top this off I have seen adults do the same as what I have written above.
