Posted in: Toyota's most rugged Land Cruiser returns to Japan See in context

I have a 80 series diesel landcruiser here in Tokyo and it can go anywhere and I can carry anything, I dont have to squeeze into it, this is my second Landcruiser, the previous model was the troop carrier HZJ 70 series diesel, that car was taken on the roughest roads in Australia (Gib river road, road to cape laveque, Broome) I bought mine here in Japan for ¥1000000 and it has all the bells and whistles, why buy new? if you cant afford new there are amazing deals to be had.

It should have been out of money years ago. It was supported with the donations for other countries, the money was to be given to the tsunami victims.

Posted in: NHK tags house of man who refuses to pay fees See in context

You can ask for NHK to send you a letter that will take you off the list. I made a mistake and payed the man once thinking I was doing the right thing, my Japanese wife is always the honest one and I was surprised that she didn't pay. They came again and I told them they made a mistake and they had to pay me back the money, they didn't agree and kept coming back for more. To get out of paying just call HHK and ask for the english speaking staff, be nice and ask for the letter you can sign and return to NHK to take you of the list. I was told to do this by NHK staff after I told them I would sue them for harassment. I apparently owed ¥100000, yep and I didn't pay.

Posted in: Do you consider the A-bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be war crimes? See in context

US started the war by blockading japan's oil supply. Japan tried to surrender but with the emperor still the emperor the rules for unconditional surrender was the same as what was put forward by the majority of Japanese people with any power, after the bombs were dropped. All messages were ignored from the Japanese government. The bombs were different so it seems to point out that it was a test. did it stop the war, I think it was a program that had a life of it's own and it was going to play out no matter what, as always there is another agenda that you and I are not privileged to know about. lets hope it doesn't happen again, let's move on, How is paying for this poll to be done?

Not something i would normally post but.. I thought TEPCO had no money and was going bankrupt, they have something tucked away by the looks of it.

Since 2000 they have made $400 Billion + with their ventures, TTNET, not sure how much was made since they bought 5% stake in Japanetbanking in the year 2002. Japanetbanking, Its stakeholders, including parent company Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) and NTT DoCoMo (provider of i-mode), were all big companies from different industry sectors. This stakeholder base gave JNB market exposure and access to their established customer bases. By April 2001 JNB had 130,000 customers. It aimed at winning one million accounts and ¥1 trillion deposits by 2002.

The Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. (TEPCO, www.tepco.co.jp, 5% stake in Japan Internet banking) Tokyo Electric Power was the world’s largest private electric power company, serving 26 million customers in Japan’s Kanto area, including Tokyo. To diversify its operations as deregulation opened up part of the market to other electric suppliers, by 2001 TEPCO was moving into telephony and Internet services. It owned a major stake in Tokyo Telecommunication Network (TTNet), which provided local and long-distance phone services, and had partnered with nine other Japanese electric power companies to create PNJ Communications, a potential rival to NTT. TEPCO’s revenues in the fiscal year ending 31 March, 2000, stood at more than US$40 billion.

I drive all the time and kids just don't have any road sense here or people just drive to fast on these narrow roads that are here. There should be a campaign in schools to educate about road safety, either walking, riding a bike or in a car (seat belts), then they can go home and teach their parents how it is done. I feel for the family, maybe if they caught their kid to look before crossing and not to run around blind corners then this might not have happened.
