Such cowardisme, you accidentally hit and killed someone, man up and hand yourself in, it's only right as you've taken a life, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

In situations like these, I say, "take matters into your own hands", perhaps a law should be passed that allows those venerable 'in this case, female, late workers and teenage girls', carry a taser, or similar self-defense means. Such tools would teach thugs such as these never to bring out old Jonny.

It's the only option after all when, the law lets you down with the "I was drunk" loophole. A pity I suppose.

I don't blame her, acting is quite demanding, many a times, the actor is driven insane by the director or agents, some even resort to suicide, others drugs. Let the English man tell you. Love, there are far better ways to relief stress, "getting away from it all" as it were, going on a holiday is but one. Best of all, its not illegal. Next time, you just might consider that.

Evening Star-viking, indeed you are quite right in that, Tim Deere-Jones does not have a doctorate, I have merely made a typographical error. Thank you for pointing that out.

Should time permit, I shall try to look for the actual research material in our lab records. I shall keep you informed.

Good morning. My apologies for the late reply. Indeed my seminar went rather well, I appreciate your concern Star-viking. Thank you.

It would appear that there were misunderstandings, I have failed to mention that the research was carried out by many distinguished professors and scientists, some of whom I have worked with at the city of London university, Westminster university. These tests were carried out across the many education institutions across London. Please see the following link


Dr Tim Deere-Jones contributions and findings were based upon the collective research of the many institutes involved, many of which I believe are made available via the link below. Please feel free to contact us via the website, either myself or one of the institute shall endeavour to respond promptly.


Good day.

My apologies that time simply will not permit me to provide a more comprehensive response. I have to give a seminar you see? I simply must be going. I shall see to it that, 'should time pramit' a more complete report be posted for the viewers of Japan Today rather than plan links.

Good day.

The fact is we lack proper data that is genuine to base our finding therefore, we simply can not be certain that our findings are accurate. Many people in the region may show radiation-linked conditions in the near future. The lack of monitoring in the region make it an unfair comparison to Chernobyl. The effects of Fukushima may be far worst than we know.

It is a known fact that radiation can be carried long distances by marine currents, concentrated in sediments, and carried in sea spray 16km or more inland.

For certain, the crippled Fukushima plant, continues to pose a hazard to coastal populations and any who consume produce from their farms.

The IAEA and other Government officials are simply failing to gather the required data, this has resulted in many ambiguity and incomplete findings.

My observation of the information provided by the official "Japanese marine monitoring programme," reveals that many officials are simply turning a blind eye to the risks of marine radiation from the stricken Fukushima site, such information is vital to carry out any research.

The strategy it has adopted, with the support of the IAEA, consistently ignores the latest evidence about the way marine radioactivity behaves in inshore marine environments and the potential radiological risks to coastal populations.

This strategy is based on a flawed hypothesis, developed by the nuclear industry through the late 1940s and early 1950s, when both oceanography and the study of the behaviour and fate of radioactivity in marine environments were in their absolute infancy.

As a result, the principal conclusions on the marine impact of the Fukushima event put forward in recent reports from the IAEA, the Government of Japan and it's relevant agencies, minimise the environmental and public health negatives and emphasise a range of hypothetical 'positives'.

This is a major flaw because the empirical evidence from 'non-aligned' research in the UK is that coastal communities are subjected to highly enriched doses of marine radioactivity through pathways of exposure, and from environmental parameters, which will not be analysed and researched under current Fukushima monitoring plans.

As a result, significant public health impacts of the event will not be documented, nor will important data about the way Fukushima marine radioactivity behaves at the coastline, such information is vital to carry out any research.

The nuclear industry hypothesis proposed that fully soluble radioactivity, such as Caesium, mixes very well in the marine water body and thus is dispersed and diluted to infinity or background. On page 39: of Technical Volume 4/5. of the IAEAs 2015 'Fukushima Daiichi Accident Report', the IAEA repeat this assertion.

The nuclear hypothesis proposed that insoluble radioactivity, like alpha emitting Plutonium and Americium (which partition out of the water column by ad-sorbing to the outer surface of suspended sedimentary particles), becomes attached to suspended particles in the marine water column, deposits out on the sea bed near the end of discharge pipelines and there remains immobilised and sequestered from human beings.

UK empirical evidence also refutes this claim and demonstrates that such 'insoluble radioactivity' is also highly mobile, can travel 100s of kms in marine water columns, deposit out in inshore mud flats and salt marshes where it can become enriched by a factor of ten.

In marine aerosols and sea spray it may be enriched by up to factor of 400 (relative to ambient seawater) and, wherever investigated, transfers across the surf line and into the coastal, terrestrial zone.

On the basis of their flawed original hypothesis it has become an article of faith for the nuclear industry and the IAEA to insist that dietary doses of marine radioactivity are only received by sea food consumers (seaweed, shell fish, crustaceans and fin fish). Thus the Japanese Government / IAEA plan sets out a strategy for the monitoring of such sea foods, but not to monitor other forms of dietary consumption of marine radioactivity.

Japan's failure to undertake any research in to the potential impacts of the Fukushima marine radioactivity upon this most exposed population group represents a dereliction of duty to both science and to the safeguarding of public health.

The lack of such data recorded in the region means the true extent of the effects of Fukushima will never be known, as a researcher, we need records and data to base our fundings.

Indeed, if I may add, do you recall the size of the most advanced video camera of the 1970s? I believe it would be quite the tasks to get that off the ground, perhaps even impassable if we factor in the weight of the old battery technology of that time. The fact is, drones are far advanced compared to your average RC aircrafts. I don't recall any aircraft to have cameras. It may have not de-railed the train as such however it did cause a comotion/inconvenience. Thumbs up for better wording America's tactics.

I believe a similar commotion happened in the USA, on two occasions to be precise, once when a drone got too close or landed on the Whitehouse, another time when one got too close to a plain/runway. I see no problem with Japan making headlines when similar incidents in Japan.

A rather fascinating exchange of opinions on the subject, bravo for keeping the discussion civilised.

Might I add, the facts remain that this fellow (A former Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant worker) has indeed been diagnosed with radiation-linked cancer, are we implying that this cancer is somehow the results of the amount of carciogens in the food that one consumes? I think it rather impossable for one to suffer radiation-linked cancer from food consumption alone. Perhaps the plant worker was exposed to high levels of radiation from a visit to Western Europe?I doubt it.

Regardless of which way we look at the situation, this is a former Fukushima Daiichi plant worker who's effected, did the radiation levels increased once the meltdown/explosion and leaking began? Yes, it's as clear as black and white.

Point taken that child trafficking is taking place all over the world, some will say "to a lesser degree in the West" as much as the truth hurts, that's because the west are the "service" users, not so much the "service" providers.

This is so sicking to read, such sick people should be tortured or simply shot in the balls.

I can not help but look at the bigger picture, have you ever stopped to consider, if there was no demand for such "services" would these guy's even conjure up the idea to begin with? (If a small towns population was all vegetarians, the local convenience would stop stocking non-veg food as there is no demand for it)

The statistics should be what's more alarming, 60 sick men "in Tokyo" knowingly paid 20,000 yen per session to have sex with an underage girl, this was only in the time frame of 40 days, I am sure 'if the police had not stepped in' word of this "service" would have spared, the true figures of such sick people would have been staggering to say the least.

These men are as guilty as the men charged for holding the girl captive 'in my opinion'.

Such dreadful news pierce through my heart like that of steel, the steel of a legendary blade tampered in the deptes of hell, skillfully wielded by none other than the legendary miyamoto musashi himself.

No matter how many lives are sacrificed, how many pages are written in history of the dangers posed by such weapons, we humans never seem to learn.

How many more lives need be sacrificed before we humans learn? Are the pages in history set in stone? Are we humans doomed and destined to destruction by our own hands? Is there no other way to sway the will of faith? Must we continue to rely on such destructive power?

I need not remind ye of the many nuclear related disaster the world over.

I want all who read my post to put all BS/personal gains aside and honestly ask themselves one question, is this a technology that we want to leave for our future generations to suffer?

@ The Godfather,

A relationship comes in many form and the word relationship, covers a wide area. Would you say "Oh dear" to the relationship one has with their work colleagues? boss, teacher, class mates, parents, siblings, pets etc etc, the list is endless, it did not say "sexual relationship".

@5SpeedRacer5 "Can somebody please tell strategist that this was not a marriage proposal"

Hmmmm..... Well unless my eyes fools me, what does the following extract read? "78-year-old man held for threatening woman in her 20s who rebuffed his marriage proposal"

"TOKYO-Police in Tokyo have arrested a 78-year-old man for threatening to kill a woman in her 20s after she handed him back a letter in which he proposed marriage to her."

Did you find any mention of "marriage proposal" or proposed marriage to her. In the above context?

His actions simply reflects that of his ages, he knows no better, this is the mindset of his generation. That's not how it's done anymore, the world is starting to follow the example set by us in the West. The example detailed below.

A marriage proposal is an event where one person in a relationship asks for the other's hand in marriage. If accepted, it marks the initiation of engagement. It often has a ritual quality, sometimes involving the presentation of an engagement ring and the formal asking of a question for example "Will you marry me, ...?" In the Anglosphere it is traditional for the man to make a proposal to the woman directly while genuflecting in front of her, although kneeling is not uncommon if somewhat obsequious; the man sometimes puts the engagement ring on her finger at this point, as opposed to merely offering it to her. Sometimes the proposal is intended to be a surprise. If the woman accepts the proposal, she will typically assent to the man verbally and wear the ring during the time leading up to the wedding, known as the engagement. Acceptance of the proposal is not compulsory in Western culture.

The important word is "if" she accepts. The last sentence (Acceptance of the proposal is not compulsory in Western culture) signifying that in other cultures, the woman has not choice but to except the proposal, some for the fear of their lives, others range from rape, acids attacks, all of which are backward, uncivilised barbaric actions.

It's rather selfish, shes 20 and his 78, thats almost 6 decades older, theirs no love, he cares not about the fact of leaving her behind when its his time to hit the grave.

The world including Japan have changed to follow the prime example set by the West, thos was one one guy who's stuck in time.

Julian Genesis, Couldn't have agreed more.

With the ageing population and the decline in birth rate/procreation, what are the current generation adults to do?

Some fantasias over anime, orthers Wed anime, but the majority of these sort of people who have secluded themselves turn to this kind of crime, abusing children.

My respects to all those who are parents and have a famaly of their own in Japan, although in the minority, please continue to set a prime example, hopefully these ill types would one day awaken from their ordeal.

Technology is good and has its benefits yet, it is up to us as parents to educate our children of the danger and threat of such websites and the Internet in general. In the end, there is only so much the government can do, the problems too big to police.

@ Julian Genesis,

I'll have to side with the offended on this one.

I was involved in a similar incident in the UK.

"I was completely drank yet the emotion of fear was overpowering, so, I was sane enough to looked around for the most fragile, frail person I could find, there were many strong 27 year old lads, than, I suddenly found one, he was a 115 year old pensioner, 'even than I thought twice' "can I handle him?" Turns out that I only needed to push him and he fell to his death. It's a pity that I did not have the balls to pick on someone my own age or size."

That's exactly what this guy's thinking.

From my understanding, Japan doesn't have a "sex offenders" register, fair enough, it does rise a few conspiracy theories but we'll save that for another day.

At the very least, are rehabilitation facilities and services made readily available for such individuals? In any case, I am certain many of these offenders would seek help and advice from the early stages of the depression. One work hope before the symptoms became this severe.

Alas I believe not enough emphasis is put on such services if any. It would fall under the wellbeing of your subjects or rather safty of the members of the public. Normally such responsibility falls on the government presently in power.

It's rather disturbing and the facts that, the adult entertainment industry in Japan is not policed or hardly ever policed means, many adult content parading the likes of Lolicon (underage indecencies) are readily accessible.

This not only implants sick ideas in the minds of people suffering such illness, it also servers to introduce such grotesque and sickening thought to the wider public. It's simply not helping the situation.

Doesn't come much as a surprise though, some of my Japanese friends got together and started the first even London Maid Cafe, had Japanese ladies, high quality maid costumes etc. It was an epic fail, i've always told them that some things are best suited to Japan and Japan only.

Hope it's a success, roleplaying is far more reputable and safer than the other types of employment these ladies might have taken.
