Posted in: All-you-can-drink beer train runs after World Cup Rugby game in Osaka See in context

Presumably what this means is that the train with free beer was operating over a period of 2 hours after the match, not that it took 2 hours for the journey (which would normally only be about 16 minutes).

Posted in: Japan's baseball practice culture sacrificing children's arms: surgeon See in context

How come I'm not remotely surprised by this? It's just typical of the Japanese idea that pain makes perfect and that nothing should be easy. Form over substance. Just watch a Japanese baseball game and see players dive for balls that are way out of reach. I've seen videos of the players just practicing diving for hours on end. Just to show that they did their best. This is a truly sad story, and even sadder that there is such an amount of resistance to the medical evidence.
