Maybe it's me, but the casual manner in which the Crown Prince is referred to in this article bugs me. He is a Prince, and it's rude in Japanese culture to call someone by their name without the appropriate honorific. Even in English it would not have been so hard to write Prince Naruhito.

Strangely, proper honorifics were used with Prince Akishino, Prince Hisahito, and Princess Aiko.

Is he not half-Japanese? He has a Japanese surname.

I've been to Vegas twice, Macau once. Macau is probably Vegas 20 years ago. No free cocktails in the casinos though. They serve tea.

The driver is always at fault. Defensive driving dictates that the driver should always slow down whenever the road is not clear or if there are blind spots/corners. He/She should always give an allowance for people/bikes/cars suddenly appearing. Right of way is not the issue. Safety comes first.

RIP for the poor kid.
