The dead centre of town.

I have no problem with it so long as it is well regulated.

Snowymountainhell, That bit is poorly written. You know as well as we native speakers.

I'd say the boys in blue turned up on their bicycles.

Why should that be considered rewarded unless he were able to keep his Nepalese one too.

Excellent work BTW.

The J-cops seem to be big fans of Ms. Satomi. There's a lot of investigation that's gone into this case, unlike others you might hear about.

But surely her name is in the credits. Have they paid their dues to the actor's union?

Posted in: Tuna goes for cut-price ¥20.84 mil at Tokyo fish market's New Year auction See in context

Slightly off topic, but can anyone tell me?, to my understanding, the auction is silent with the amount offered by the buyers made known to the auctioneer by secretive hand gestures inside a sock. How is this a fair auction? Is there no driving of the price?

Posted in: Kitchen equipment piles up as pandemic shutters Japan's restaurants See in context

I went full Gaijin style and had a garage sale. Signs up all around.

Close to no interest. An old lady came for the child trailer for my mountain bike. Virtually stole it from me, then took the bike too (without thinking it was separate) because she liked it. Yeah, carbon is delightful to look at. Friends got a free spin, the bulk of my unkept treasure went in bags on the kerb.

Posted in: Australia jails Japanese man for importing methamphetamine See in context

I applaud your^^^^ longing for more realistic sentencing for brutal crimes, yet these drugs are brutal to whole societies, so 9 years sets a nice example, but don't discount the danger of the act committed.

Umm, guns exist in Japan. Shotguns being one of the easiest to be licensed for. But these stiffs (RIP) are from Aichi. Yakuza.
