Aichi Man takes cops gun, shoots him

My question, why was the Police man carrying a gun on him? I thought typically Japanese police carry a baton and maybe pepper spray or something like that but not a gun.

I haven’t seen police men with guns in Japan, then again I try to keep a low profile so maybe I’ve just not seen them.

Kindergartener brings air gun to school and shoots dried beans at director dressed as traditional monster. Ambulance was called (by dialing 119) director was brought to the hospital. Directer had Bruising but no other serious injuries.

Now that is unusual.

Agreed, it’s already too crowded in Tokyo not looking forward to a million or so people visiting. Where are they going to put them all!?

Things I want to do in America

sabotengirl:

  • eat American pizza, it tastes so big and sloppy and delicious, it tastes like freedom!
  • eat gross American sushi rolls where everything’s cooked and fried and flavored like crazy, love it
  • eat burritos and tacos!
  • eat cupcakes, lots of them! how come you can’t get cupcakes in Japan?
  • I guess that’s all. All I want to do is eat

Hmm.. now why does this sound familiar? haha.

Leave the US sushi out, and swap it in for Bagels. Not that bread they call bagels here in Japan, I’m talking about real NY style bagels.
