Do you know if there is any way we can donate without having a Japanese email?

Cell phone at a friend's house would not be an issue. When you dial an emergency number your phone goes into an emergency mode and sends your location to the dispatcher via GPS. Emergency mode disables other functions of the phone as well so that you do not lose connection to the dispatcher.

Gaijinfo - not sure if you've ever attended a cremation in Japan before but after the body has been burned the family members crush the bones into the urn so they are not normally crushed to the size of sand.

Posted in: Murder suspect commits suicide in hospital See in context

My uncle attempted suicide, failed and was hospitalized for his injuries. Once he regained enough strength, he called a taxi to the hospital in the middle of the night, walked out and was succesful the second time. I was outraged and couldn't understand how the hospital cannot be held accountable. But my family explained there is no 'suicide watch' in Japanese hospitals. I don't know how true/untrue it is but it still baffles me. Obvious this is a little different being that she was arrested for murder/undergoing pyschiatric evalution. That alone should of warranted some sort of security.
