Moderator: The story has been amended to show that.

Japan has previously said Australia has no authority to enforce its domestic laws on the high seas.>

That should save everybody some time rather than actually reading the article.

The women only cars rule is only operational during certain times of the day, specifically rush hour for women clad in their best business suits who don't usually seem to be dragging around a toddler so there isn't much point. Also, we can't simply rule out the (minority) fathers who are pushing prams.

In the future, with greater flexible working hours and better daycare facilities being available to working women in Tokyo and other business centres, adding those extra cars and spaces might be a consideration.

Yes yes yes, hes a very bad man and hopefully will be justly punished for his actions.

But right now I'd like to talk about this -

Hakuho, a 30-year-old yokozuna grand champion, won a record 35th Emperor’s Cup this summer, surpassing legendary Japanese wrestler Taiho who had held the record of 32 titles.

Wouldn't his 33rd title in January be the point of surpassing?

Time and again I have been in cars with Japanese people in their mid-20s and they laugh when I put on my seat belt.

The caller, the local police station, informed her that her father had been caught attempting to steal a 450-yen boxed meal from a supermarket. “The cash registers were all crowded,” he’d explained. He had 5,000 yen in his wallet.>

I actually see this happen a lot with the elderly in Japan. They simply walk to the front of the queue in a convenience store and then pretend that they didn't notice the 10 people waiting.

My friend was trapped on a different train that night because of this. He said they basically switched everything off apart from the lights and everyone was becoming rather PO'd because of the lack of oxygen.
