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.

Thank you for the opportunity , Girl_in_Tokyo. So, know of any gender reversal situations that compare to this story?

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

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?

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.

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.

Posted in: Road rage suspect goes on trial for assault See in context

I agree with Vanessa. Having spent a considerable amount of time on the roads of Japan, I've seen heaps, been assaulted (to his demise, but cops didn't chase him up to my knowledge), and have no respect for other drivers or the cops. Mostly don't see cops until after an event. Yet phone use, drunk driving, unrestrained kids, etc, etc is rampant on the blacktop.

Drive safe out there hombres, try not to piss people off, and deffo get a dashcam!

Posted in: Street Kart company ends crowdfunding campaign with dismal support See in context

Jim, on my marikart excursion, 2 of the other 6 'drivers' were Singaporean 'paper driver' ladies, one following the other, sometimes swapping position, always crashing into the back of the other whenever it wasn't pedal to the metal. I don't know how they survived the afternoon.

My Japanese buddies hadn't heard of it and loved it! They are very much left field though.

J-Cops... You are obliged to hand in any find exceeding 500 yen.

Have handed in purses and wallets before, but the hassle of having to explain how you didn't steal it is real.
