Guarding Patriot missles, but he's unarmed?

While Stucki selected his mode of transport for practical purposes — expressway tolls are cheaper,...? Funny, every time I ride through the toll booth on my bike they charge me the same as for a car.

What I like is he's still smiling after all that time in a muddy river.

... and, I say the solution is to put yomigana over all kanji except river mouth or mountain : )

The bright side for non-Japanese living in Japan is, 'Well, if the PM can't read kanji you can cut us a little slack, right?'

I heard Beck play Saturday night, he was amazing in his own set. When the 'guitar legends' played together I thought they were just so-so.

Hey, c'mon, the guy wanted to look, but he's thinking, "Oh, no, if that guy clicks the shutter now, all my friends are going to see I'm riding my sister's pink bicycle!"

I know it sounds weird, but that is exactly what jet-lagged tourists on group tours do (when you're that jet-lagged it really doesn't matter what time of day the clock says it is). My ex is a tour guide and the Tsukiji fish market has been a premier attraction for years. Her guests love it. She's been trying to persuade me how wonderful it is and that I should get up early enough to watch the dead fish at 5 a.m. Was never going to happen even before they passed this new rule.

Posted in: Gov't to boost moral education for young people See in context

How about beginning with an education program on the trains and in stations. Put on extra staff, put up posters, make announcements: "In order not to trouble others, do not plow into them with your shoulder, briefcase, or shopping bag. If you should accidentally bump into someone, say 'excuse me'" Some basic civil behavior. Worked in NY City (enforcing laws against turnstile jumpers, etc).

rgetty,

For some reason Japan has always done what they want in the face of everyone else and there is little to any retributions that they face. Why is that? Money?

No, it's Political Correctness. Only certain groups are allowed to be criticized.

Freddy5 They won't be chasing your around with kitchen knives. It's fruit knives. Get your country straight.

Posted in: Mt Fuji See in context

I've been up Mt. Fuji 3 times and will go again. Climbing up at night seems crazy to me because of the crowds and because you can't see anything. Climbing up in the daytime is exhilarating with an excellent view (you don't look at the pumice under your feet, but at the landscape and the clouds floating beneath you and getting progressively further and further below you).
