WWII is of the past. I wish they would just focus on a brighter future and not let the past be the cause of another war. I really don't care what Japan or any country did during WWII. I wasn't alive then nor were any of my living family members. WWII was a bad time for the whole world. Sometimes you have to forget the past and move on to a better life.

Looks like we'll hit an all new level of overworked staff. Only hope they allow public transport people get enough time off to ensure they can stay focused and alert during working hours.

Alfie, The utter lack of even basic human empathy from some posters on here never ceases to appal. Let's hope they never have to be old, poor, sick and forced from their homes by earthquakes and nuclear disasters.
Who's to say they're not and have taken matters into their own hands and rebuilt their life?

The words "Voluntary evacuees" is used several times in this story. How is running away from a triple nuclear meltdown and fear of radiation contamination considered "voluntary". On another point, it's been 8 years now. Why haven't these unfortunate victims (not voluntaries) rebuilt their lives yet. Even though the government states "has significantly lowered air radiation dose" I could never live near a nuclear power plant again. I would have already counted my losses, relocated and rebuilt my life elsewhere. I already did it once in my life. Counted my loses and rebuilt my life from scratch. It's tough at first but if you keep positive and put your mind to it life gets better.

Apologies for any misunderstanding. My comment "Everyone know the report to the UN had nothing to do with it" was sarcasm as nothing is mentioned in the story.

And it has nothing to do with .....
"Through a team of lawyers his family submitted a document on Monday to the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention - Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Geneva."
as stated in Tuesday's (3/5/19) JT. Or just a coincidence in timing?

I guess if he did help the person, we would be reading a story about a bus driver losing his job because he caused a delay for hundreds of passengers due to helping a wheelchair bound passenger. Seems like a no win for the driver.

Still wondering, and have been for the past 20, how many more years they will say "within 30 years"

Remember, J Government has 51% control over TEPCO, so will the money come from TEPCO or Tax payers? Or both?

If it is so safe for tours, why aren't more Japanese government officials and civilians moving into the area to revitalize it. Also, would like to know how many Japanese sign up for the tour or how many Japanese actually go their on their days off.

AlexBecu, Comparing will not bring abused and neglected children back to life. Another country having a bigger problem in no way makes me feel better about the problems in Japan. Let's focus on a solution and not the problem.

To start in 2021. I guess they can't risk emitting higher levels of radiation into the air prior to the Olympics. I bet things will more much faster after the Olympics.

Question; Does anyone know why he doesn't have a non-native Japanese on his defense team?

Let's start with making it legal for police and/or child welfare officials to enter the home of suspected child abuse (and pension abusers) without the permission of the home owner.

Dumbest thing I have every seen!!! So you're unhappy and lonely so everyone should be the same. How about going out and meeting people. Start with the people in your group.

New scapegoat? I can hear it now; Sorry for the death of your child. Their must have been a problem with the AI software. But don't worry, our techs are checking it out.

Saw this on TV news. I really wish they wouldn't sensor out the faces. These idiotic people should be seen by all!!!! Don't care if they are under 20. Show their face!

puregaijin; I believe you are way off base with your comment. First, according to the article the police said "it appears the two died of natural causes". Looking at their ages, it could be possible. Or perhaps one died of natural causes and the other wasn't getting his/her medication due to one of them dying. We can speculate all day however I find your comment a bit disrespectful given the amount of info given.

Andrew Chrip: The Democrats okayed every request from Clinton and Obama when they wanted money for a wall on the Southern Border.
And those are the areas where the boarder is safe and not being crossed. Don't know why they won't let Trump finish the job.

I'm sure this will be deleted but ..... This article is so one sided and clearly writing by an anti-Trump person. Democrats don't want security. They hate Trump sop much that they are willing to sacrifice America's security and lives for their own agenda. That is to oust Trump. People. Stop watching CNN. Moderator, I would rather you delete it NOT edit it as you have done in the past.

Actually, as nice as they look, they are exactly the same as you'd see at expressway service areas around Japan. But free. I don't use public transport however I'm sure they are an improvement from free ones.

SaikoPhysco; I can so relate. My older daughter born and raised in Japan has beautiful dark brown wavy Italian hair. She couldn't be more Japanese and well, you know the rest of the story.

The plans are expected to be finalised in March after gathering views from local residents.
Yeah, We all know how that works. Get their views and move forward no matter what they say.
