Posted in: Foreign brands still minnows in Japanese car market See in context

Slumdog - Korean cars are available, only people dont want to buy them, few years back they were cheap copies of Japanese models but now they are making better cars, but in a country where u have like ten makers already and a limited population, why would people risk their money to buy Korean cars which not popular and gives u no advantage on Japanese cars!! US cars still sell lot more here compared to Korean cars, but those US cars sales number are still tiny when compared to what other brands sell here like Audi, Benz or BMWs! Japanese car consumers are basically two types, first group is looking for economical car who get lots of choices of 660cc kei cars from local companies or hybrid like Prius or Aqua and Japanese are top makers of economical cars worldwide, they hardly get any competition!! Even just compare new Mazda CX-5 diesel with others, its best economical SUV! The second group is looking for luxury cars and they prefer to buy foreign brand to show off they are rich, and there is no limit what many rich people can spend, thats the reason people with deep pockets prefer imported German cars which not only cost lot more to maintain but visit mechanic for troubles lot more than Japanese cars!

Posted in: A unique getaway in Nikko: Zen hostel See in context

Get a rental car if u dont own one, its lot more fun in Nikko, been there many times and is one of my favorite places to visit! Going around bus is the only option if u go on train but u lose a lot of time waiting buses and u have to wait very long to get on next bus.

Posted in: Once infertile Japanese woman gives birth after surgery See in context

I agree with ControlFreak very much!! When they are young and have good body condition to give birth to babies is when they are enjoying night life and dont have time to raise (or give birth) to the babies, when they realize that they are old and its too late is when those ladies will come to abuse these breakthroughs......and getting a baby delivered is sure a joy of lifetime but raising and taking care till they can live on their own is another topic. I hope and pray that we dont see more infanticide in Japan because of this new unnatural creation of human being.....

Posted in: Acid attack on two British women in Zanzibar See in context

AKBfan not sure why acid attacks ppear to be more common in Islamic countries.

These attacks take place everywhere on this planet, please stop relating everything with Islamic countries, yes I would have agreed if you relate suicide bombing with Islamic countries!! (Am not a muslim but Islam is a good religion in hand of few bad muslims)

nandakandamanda No question in my mind as to who did this.

Such actions spit in the face of Allah.

How can you be so sure that culprits are muslim??? Could you read a muslim cleric was attacked by acid too!!! Zanzibar has one of the worst episodes of slavery!! What if it was a racial attack against white community, or just for some personal reason!! Or may be politically motivated to hurt tourism....

The girls were not tourists but living on the same island, we should wait for outcome before making harsh comment on a religion or country or community!!

Posted in: Truck rear-ends car, killing man, 2 children See in context

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is what happened. The truck was tailgating the car. The car developed difficulties and slowed down, but the truck was so close that the driver couldn't see anything but the roof of the car, and was way to close to stop. Result, 3 dead.

Frungy, please get your information correct before you post such comments. The car was already stopped in between of highway when the accident happened, can you imagine yourself in a car standing in middle of a highway??? Secondly, there was a car between the truck and victims car, so there was no tailgating. Its a bad and tragic accident.

For people crying about safe distance, safe distance is maintained between moving cars. The victims car was parked in middle of highway, 10 ton trucks could never stop so easily and its always a bit late before truck driver realizes and applies brakes! And regarding maintaining safe distance, I tried to drive with safe distance many times (my car has radar cruise control which can drive and maintain safe distance automatically) but whenever you make safe distance there comes in a new car between making you go back and again and again until you decide to get closer to car in front of you.

I have been myself driving car for hundreds of times for more than ten years on different roads and speedways. If you are driving at a reasonable speed (which is slightly more than speed limit) then there are few chances someone would tailgate you.

All I can say is, parents should have gone back to home on train or bus rather than using rental car if they are not good drivers. In Japan, rental car are basically well maintained and I doubt it was car fault of stopping suddenly in Aichi after driving from Tokyo. Truck driver should have been more careful too but all that doesnt matters when accident has to happen. My heart aches for the young kids. RIP babies

Frungy...oh yes, may be you need to learn more about Japan if you think this is a joke! In Japan the culture is different, people feel comfortable telling a lie rather than hurting someone telling how they feel straight forward, foreigners are more honest to their feelings when it comes to expression. Its not good or bad, just the cultural difference!

Posted in: Myanmar to free all political prisoners by yearend See in context

I've been to Burma (Myannar) on business trip and I found Burmese people to be one of the kindest although most of them are living in poverty. Normally you dont feel safe walking alone on streets but Myanmar was special and I realized these people are really peaceful. But what happened in Myanmar with muslim community is really unacceptable. But what happened in Rakhine is not same everywhere in Myanmar so lets not mix up details here. Myanmar is still a wonderful country and needs international support to come out of long running military junta!

Everytime I read news related to Mexico, its 90% about drug warlords....dont they have any other business or creativity there? I've heard the beaches are beautiful but who will go to a country where people are beheaded like carrots.....getting this guy doesnt solve anything, his brother will kill more and then next one in line! Government should create more industry and jobs for people to leave better life than dreaming of becoming a Don

Posted in: Nissan relaunches Datsun in India after 30 years See in context

Datsun was name of company before it was named Nissan, so this is a bit unclear that the car name is Datsun? Or does it have a company badge of Datsun instead on Nissan? Anyway doesnt seems like a good idea to use that name after 30 years as first time car buyers are supposed to be young and they are more aware of name Nissan than Datsun! Good luck Mr. Ghosn

Well this is not a victory for people thinking it as a victory, the shipment should be sent to Japan or the meat should be consumed as those whales are dead already and this means they died for nothing. Victory can only be used when no more whales or sharks are killed which looks pretty impossible for the time being.
