Are these cops in jail? The story failed to mention it or maybe I'm just blind. If not, they should be. If any of us were caught on camera kicking anybody, we'd be in jail.

People are actually crying and are upset about this? Folks can spend their money anywhere they want. If ryokans want better business, do some repairs and fix that flickering light. lol Man, people are so sensitive these days. Some people prefer to stay in ryokans for that traditional (sometimes ridiculously expensive) experience while some prefer a more modern upscale hotel experience. It's their choice. There is absolutely nothing a hotel commercial can do to hurt your business if you're running it right. Just do better.

Most of the participants look over 60, too. This needs to be taught to the younger generation as well. An accidental missile drop is a real threat here.

Boy, imagine if there were no surveillance cameras. I think 99% of cases in Japan would probably go unprosecuted.

Some of the best evil people are the nicest ones. You can never really know who you're hiring, or even dating, until they reveal to you who they really are.

Posted in: U.S. soldier arrested for trespassing in home in Aomori Prefecture See in context

Some of ya'll act like Americans do this all the time here. This rarely happens and when it does, they are definitely punished, you just don't hear about it because the matter becomes internal depending on the severity of the offense. Anyway, Japanese people commit a lot of breaking-and-entering offenses in this country so it's nothing new. No need to turn this into some big deal. The man was young, drunk and stupid; we've all been there. Luckily, nobody got hurt. I hope the home owner gets counseling or whatever he needs to feel better and learns to lock his door next time and move on. I also hope the young airman regrets his actions, also gets the help he needs and does better. That's really all you can hope for in this situation.

Posted in: 16-year-old boy beaten, robbed by youth gang in Hokkaido See in context

The youth in Japan know that there won't be any severe punishments if they're caught doing something so... I'd say make examples out of all of them and give them a few months in jail. A few months without a warm bed and hot meals, daily hot showers, decent parents and their iPhones might make them change.

Posted in: Driver arrested after elderly woman dragged by van for 2 km in Tokyo See in context

It's sad the lady died this way. However, it's possible he really didn't know he hit her. Who in their right mind would run somebody over and continue driving with the body attached to their car for 10 minutes? What kind of car was it? It's possible he fell asleep at the wheel, hit her, was awoken by the sudden jolt and kept on driving. The accident is still probably his fault, tho.

I don’t believe suicide in this nature, extremely unlikely. I would think this is a murder. I hope this gets investigated properly.

> I doubt it would be murder considering both girls took off their shoes and left their things in the hallway before falling. I could be wrong, but this seems more pre-meditated to me.

Posted in: Japanese high school kids average 12% correct answers in English oral test See in context

All this will inevitably result in the best jobs, ie international companies, being more accessible to English speakers from abroad.

I'd love to see that, but let's be honest: when English is needed in the Japanese business world, Taro the Japanese middle manager will always value other Japanese people with mediocre English over an English speaker from abroad. This is one of the reasons Japan lags so far behind in English: they absolutely refuse to cede authority to a non-Japanese on what is correct, even when the subject is the non-Japanese person's native language.

Man, I wish I could give you 2 thumbs up. You nailed it with this comment. This made me think about the definition of insanity.

This is a cultural problem. There is no reason kids should be failing English at this rate when there are a lot of third-world countries who can speak it with no problem. Everyone knows Japan has an "If it's not broken, don't fix it" type mentality towards a lot of things, especially when it comes to education. The kids kids aren't taught English to actually USE it. They're taught it as a means to get a higher score on some test after which they will never use it again. My Japanese wife was totally against letting our child enroll into Japanese schools and I completely supported her decision. We home-schooled him, let him learn English naturally through movies, daily conversations, debates, etc; and guess what? He speaks, reads and writes in perfect English and Japanese and he's not even 10 years old, yet. Her friends criticized her but look at their kids; stressed out, can barely say "Hello" and will probably be stuck in this country for the rest of their lives.

Why would a persons' sexual orientation come up during a job interview anyway? I wonder what that conversation was like.

Posted in: Decapitated head found at Sapporo home of arrested doctor, daughter See in context

I just wanna know:

WHERE did the knife come from??? She entered the love hotel with him so there was some consent for something. I'm just going to assume she already had a knife on her because I have yet to see knives in love hotels here and I have been to a lot of them. A LOT.

WHY did she stab him multiple times? The original article stated "the cause of death as hemorrhagic shock and that Ura's head was severed after his death." Maybe to make sure he was dead, but what was the motive? Did she honestly think she would get away with it? There are cameras pretty much everywhere in hotels in Japan.

WTF was her dad thinking? I know she's an adult and he can't control what she does but dropping her off at a love hotel in the middle of the night? Nah, I'd never do that. I'd never drop my daughter off at a love hotel. THEN, he picked her back up? Most people I know are sleeping at 2:00am. What was the conversation during that phone call she placed to him or was this all planned from the beginning?

**I can kinda understand why the police arrested the mom; she's part of the family and is most likely to be the first to crack and confess something. Japan is still and always will be about getting that confession.

Wow. Elon Musk, by buying Twitter, is now responsible for enabling criminals in Japan to fence stolen merchandise. Twitter needs to do background checks so this doesn't happen again.

Background checks will have little to no effect at all. Even good people go bad.
