K.'s departure from the E. U. well from what I could love to Brussels weapon basement today was standing by morning there it could be along with posting a day for you today fundamentally this summit is all about cash who has the upper hand of just how important is actually getting this deal done we know this is going to be a very long so mad when I was going to be very better we're all really and for a very long one we're talking about one trillion years over the next seven years out of the U. budget and the whole point that you use of money of course to prop up the E. U. policy a lot of this is about money but you could also argue it's about a bench in the how ambitious do you want to be in the European project and for that you're going to need money who's going to pay for that fundamentally that is the question you're right there is a huge division between countries that don't want to see the funds they receive from the E. U. being card and those that would pay into the budget the next ten years and I'm thinking about countries like the Netherlands or Austrian we're now seeing were smaller you near where the E. twenty seven now without the member states we need to do more with less and that is a fair argument of course for countries that receive this funding they would tell you it's not and then you also have voices like I'm an American who said I will not agree to anything that is not as ambitious as our plans for the E. U. and you have to keep in mind of course that this is a budget for the vendor line commission was really promise very ambitious goals on climate change and the green deal but the fundamental question about that is how is that going to be funded summary you mentioned if he's a smaller the E. U. there's an absence at the table of this particular meeting Britain because of brexit how large is brexit looming over these two actually very much big kids this is the first time the meat as that you twenty seven for the first time there won't be a seat for the U. K. until now the U. K. had always been present although breakfast was always an issue and fundamentally you're also looking at money once again this is a country I would pay into the budget we feature specialty tell you we're running short around sixty to seventy five billion euros now of course you have to keep in mind that that is in the three seven years you have to cut that by almost an annual figure and then by each member states to in the end we look at each country is not as big as the headline number but of course this is a country that paid and is no longer there and then you have to also factor into it as that of trade negotiations are about to start any minute now and it's interesting though that we've heard that the French negotiators and that's part of the deal are also now saying we need to get extra conditions with the trade talks to actually began so you could argue this is also a team that will play out it's not at the table on the sidelines of the summit look in the proposal this full Michelle Michelle at the U. council president he's kind of put forward a compromise deal already on the table toward a compromise deal on the table ultimately you're talking about gross national income there is the more hawkish voices will tell you one is capped at one percent the more against dovish voices will tell you what it does at one point one and then he'd come up with a compromise what is interesting here is that none of the sites actually seem to like it as it often happens with a compromise deal at the start but it is important for shot Michelle is the president of the European Council this is actually his first summit for this to go well the gossip of course in Brussels is that we're probably going to be here for two three days but nothing will actually emerge and not many are expecting an actual deal they're saying as long as this is done in the first half of the year it's good because you have to keep in mind this budget would start with taking in twenty twenty one yeah I'm calling to your call on this summer at the gonna walk away with the deal in the end how long will it take I said well I think not and if you look at the Brussels metro stations near the European institutions are telling people it's probably going to be shot until Saturday which is never a good thing very forget things but but I would say we see divisions are not very optimistic okay so is about the traffic we should so I read as well lots of them thank you so much to pay for it today yes live from Brussels I should be keeping us up to speed on that if you've budget debate as it goes on and straight ahead on daybreak Europe we gonna be reviewing the stories you need to start your morning we'll take a closer look at today's daybreak newsletter and that starts off with cheese the new head of UBS for Brian this is what this is a book I need a little boost mobile my old phone is painful without boost mobile I got an old phone it makes my life say I feel so a.

S. with nobody was perfect no delays perfect but that didn't damn they're guaranteed thirty rounds could not develop the techniques and the kit necessary to make a nuclear weapon for the next fifteen years service time limited for stop being quite clear but I was also yeah and there was not the sort of them is going to cost what happened at the end of the fifteen is what president trump is done and it looks as a the only reason he decided to destroy the deal what does best of this or that it was because it had been undertaken by president Obama not for any other reason is that there's not as I will have to explain there's a strategy that is discernible behind this he's torn up his side of the deal so that that and what is not done is first of all if if the Dave deal fully collapses then the guarantee that Iran could not developing nuclear weapons next fifteen years does and we already see that the hardliners in the system are desperately anxious to ramp up production of highly enriched uranium and a plutonium they are heavy water let let me stop you there because you would use that she's several really important points I want to go through them one by one I want to start with your analysis of what Donald Trump is playing that you say it was pure spite two two in a sense undo the work done by Barack Obama I would point to be coherent set of reasons that trump and his key advisors have to suggest that Iran is I'm on right reconstructed threat to US and other western powers interests around the world today it's not going to click on the constructed it is a threat the point about Iran is that it is a very divided government you have an elected government rows of the reformist under honey and these are if they don't have ultimate power but they do have a huge amount of insurance fund don't run for the real partnerships with no lights a lot from the navy and all of the security apparatus that tells me that I'm not able to him that that's the era that the American right wing and Netanyahu for example make saying this simply mouth pieces on the front they're not this is very very divided governmental system it's the supreme leader Khamenei and the revolutionary guards who control the cursive apparatus of the state what how many have to accept the nuclear deal under very great pressure from people like Romeo other sensible people in the system who wanted to see around have up in the coming future the irony about trump's position is that the one group in Iran who were cheering his position are indeed the hardliners in the revolutionary guards who always opposed the nuclear deal because they could see how restrictive it was now but if I may have there there is substance behind the American list of reasons why that deal to use trump's melodramatic phrase was the worst deal ever for example ballistic missile technology and development continues in Iran and that represents a fundamental danger view of the Americans for instance another instance Iran's funding all of the different groups in the region and beyond which are absolutely contrary to western interests has been ramped up one only has to look at his Paula one only has to look at the situation in Syria and the Hutus in Yemen all of these are instances where Iran's behavior according to Donald Trump and many others is simply unacceptable our our Arden now here's a spokesman for the Iranian regime far from is a highly critical in my book about about particularly the hardliners and their attitude to funding and supporting rejections terrorist groups around the Middle East and not least the attitudes towards the state of Israel however what trump did was to dispose one good thing which was a nuclear deal with at least and short some guarantee on the nuclear capabilities yes there are other things on the agenda the fact is the rain and the issues of missiles or if their activities elsewhere in the region well not part of the deal in my view if the nuclear deal had settled and it started to produce economic benefits for Iran which was beginning to do not withstanding efforts by the United States even before the latest at trump abandonment of the deal to undermine the economy in Iran than those other items could have been what point one with respect to that that that logical leap you've just made simply doesn't work yes there were economic benefits for Iran after the twenty fifteen signing off the J. C. P. LA but the result was that Iran was able to ramp up ending on its military ram puppet spending in Syria ramp up its spending on his boleh though who's with the very real consequences of the easing of sanctions which you and the people who supported the deal actively I I've been I think that that is what is being asserted by the Americans I think is very went went when the falls within what it's really true the what is entirely true is it wrong it's continued to support people it sees as its erstwhile allies it marks the share community elsewhere in the Middle East what I think is completely exaggerated is the extent to which Iran was able to use the normalization of relations up as a result of the J.

"At the Japan society discussing her book Japan we are today it is somewhere around seven or eight depending on you know how much China is standing at the moment it slips back and forth it's so it's ranking within that top ten maybe slightly different year to year but there's no doubt about it that Japan has felt it necessary and important to invest in the military is an instrument right the state craft it's more interesting is not the Reno tracing of Japan with the decision making that Japan has engaged in in the last decade or more about how to use that military so I've just walk through one of the chapters with you hear about sending the forces abroad in coalition with others the more difficult issue for Japan of course has been defending and making sure their military is ready to defend should someone put pressure threaten coerce were actually attack Japan I think that's the one place where you see a considerable change in Japan's environment you see two neighbors I'm thinking of North Korea and China here who have themselves moved their arsenals into a a position of a capability or increase our capability sufficient to be a threat to Japan now that doesn't mean North Korea is about to attack please doesn't China wants to have a war with Japan but both of those countries have invested considerably both technologically and financially in building rapidly military capabilities that undermine Japanese security we saw that most recent indication of that a twenty seventeen when the north Koreans were sending the barrages of missiles over top of Japan and then we're sending a larger test missile one or two that could potentially reach the United States actually into Japanese airspace over Japanese airspace so Japanese now look at North Korea and because they worry about the nuclear piece obviously because that will be a test for all of our allies especially are non nuclear allies of South Korea and Japan but for the Japanese it's the missile arsenal that really lays bare the vulnerability of Japanese capability Japan does not have yet a missile arsenal of its own in other words it doesn't have the capacity even a conventional capacity to strike its neighbors it has very carefully avoided developing that kind of capability has stayed very much in defensive mode reactive mode but as it rises Japanese of watch the Koreans the north Koreans develop this kind of capability and proliferate the number and the kind of missiles that Pyongyang has accrued over the last five to ten years it does raise when I call on the book a missile gap it raises the question for the Japanese are they continuing are they going to continue to subscribe to this idea that they should not purchase a strike capability that they should not do this and this is in part of the political debate it's in the book you can read it if you're interested so politicians have debated this as health people inside the ministry of defense and inside the self self defense forces but that's the threshold the Japanese you have yet to cross and that's the one way in which the threat perception of what North Korea has been doing since the mid nineteen nineties has affected the Japanese thinking about their own defenses and what may be necessary with Japan has done and done with deep investment is engage a ballistic missile defense system and you just saw last year the Japanese government announced that it will expand the capacity of their ballistic missile defenses I too included included on shore version what they call the ages shore which will give Japan a much greater capacity to detect the track and if necessary to shoot down any missiles that are coming from continental Asia so there's been a lot of spending on a defensive share force posture to deal with the missile threat from North Korea and potentially obviously the missile threat from other parties around Japan the second area which upon has seen its threat perception intensify of course is in China and we saw that we've seen that in terms of the modernization of Chinese nuclear forces we saw the Japanese get very nervous in the mid nineteen nineties about China's willingness to threaten Taiwan with the potential of use of force during an election campaign but the real challenge of course the real wake up call I think for Japanese security planners and obviously for the US Japan alliance with the island to speed of twenty ten and then again in twenty twelve others think a good value the Chinese refer to it these islands in the East China Sea of course are have a very strong emotional component especially for the Chinese people but also for the Japanese and China Japan of basically avoided a direct clash with let's just leave those our sovereignty issue on the sites but by the mid twenty tens that was no longer possible and you sign a ratcheting up of not government to government tensions really citizen to citizen tents protestors demonstrations fishing captains right having a few too many and deciding to take on the Japanese Coast Guard but that then galvanized I think the political leadership of both countries to a point where they couldn't back down so now you've got government forces on both sides coastguards not yet navy's operating within the territorial waters of those islands which for a long time basically were quietly managed by the two governments today the Senkaku islands issue doesn't Dr Japanese defense planning hi but it certainly opened up the possibility for the first time the Japan might be the recipient of some kind of pressure military pressure from China or some kind of military attack maybe on these remote islands before the United States was involved and I talked a lot about Korea the assumption about a contingency on the Korean peninsula during the Cold War and even after the Cold War was always with the United States would respond and that Japan would be either cold in order want to support US forces to the bases but never somewhere where Japan would be attacked directly in other words that the initiation of the use of force the conflict would begin with Japan the center garland dispute in twenty ten twenty twelve began to raise the prospect that hello miscalculation an accident deliberate necessarily ambition for war but that kind of escalate to a dynamic something we're seeing a little bit over there in the Middle East today right that kind of ratcheting up of tensions could be very hard to manage and could have Japan line of that level of tension so the Japanese of course have responded with Washington to shore up the US Japan alliance to make sure that the United States and Japan are on the same page in case something were to happen and to try to figure out strategies for de escalation right should there be that kind of crisis but none the less that challenge with China over the islands really did open the possibility that the United States may not want to go to war inside the United States may have different interests from Japan in a conflict such as that that's what we call an I. R. theory the risk of abandonment I hate our allies don't wanna be entrapped went by our conflicts but they don't wanna be abandoned by us if they have a need for us either so that that became a fairly focused look at Japanese security in political thinking about how do we make sure the United States and Japan I deeply embedded so that possibility of abandonment is probably not going to happen I think the the the those two scenarios North Korea and China clearly have had the biggest impact not only in the way Japanese think about weapons systems and purchases and we just saw a defense plant the end of last year that season an uptick in annual defense budget growth for the next five years but they also have prompted a re re thinking of the US Japan alliance and upgrading if you will in the dialogue between United States and Japan about how this alliance is going to work given this new Asia given these new pressures and the book also talks in in a chapter I call relying on borrowed power from the Japanese perspective of why there is more attention being given today by Japanese political and security planners political leaders and security planners about how to make sure the state's remains engaged and that the conversation between United States and Japan becomes more and more closer I wouldn't say war to a war fighting kind of alliance because that's what we have with the are okay and that's what we had with NATO largely still do but that we get a little bit more concrete about well what we do should this happen as you all may know we've got fifty thousand Americans our first military personnel stationed forward deployed in Japan they operate the exercise with Japanese self defense force partners every day our military's know each other very very well but this is still an alliance we don't always know how our political decisions will be made and those are the ones that matter right those are the ones that matter if you're in a crisis well you have to respond quickly to a crisis the application of military force of course is that the level of the highest elected elected office in both of our democracies and I think that's where you've had a greater sense of need for a conversation between United States and Japan in the last decade or so especially the last five years so let me wrap up a little bit by giving you the the two cents conclusion of the book and IT I work at CFR I'm not supposed to just be an academic supposed to try to help policymakers understand what I think is coming next and so when I when I listen to American policy makers were sitting Washington in these conversations and again I'm not a policymaker sitting classifieds settings all of the writing in this book is open source and based on my experience it's not based on any classified data or anything like that so but when I do sit and have these conversations and I was at sea a fiery in Washington through the kid the sink a crisis through the twenty seventeen north Korean missile launches cetera what I thought the book that need to be written was how does this work what is the debate in Japan and how does it help us and help our policy community understand what might be coming next course it also speaks to this question about is Japan going to change it's fundamental post war organization of military capability limited to two national defense coupled with alliance with the United States and my answer today is no unless Sheila Smith Japan and the unless is important here because I think a lot of people feel that this rising threat perception from North Korea and China we'll make Japan change its mind on things like conventional strike some people think even on nuclear weapons when I did the book finds in New York at CFR I can't tell you how many questions I got about Japanese nuclear capability and what the Japanese could do what they do it and how would they do it okay take a breath it's not about to become a nuclear power perception my conclusion is threat perception alone is not going to push Japanese political or security strategic thinkers away from that basic fundamental premise that limited capability limited to the needs of national defense and reliance on the U. S. for extended deterrence spoke nuclear deterrence but also conventional strike is still the preferred method of ensuring Japanese security and I think that's going to be true no matter what the Chinese or the.

"Always makes me feel welcome when I come here it's been too long but I'm delighted to be back so I have a new book it's a book that takes me back also because it's a book that I began to think about when I was a graduate student at Columbia writing my dissertation and I was looking at a country that had embedded in its constitution and article article nine that basically said it would not treat military force or military power in the same way that other countries did or took for granted right it said in its constitution that Japan the Japanese people would forever renounce right war as a means of settling international disputes I added as a graduate student thought that was a remarkable thing now I kind of which our constitution said something like that to not because I was a pacifist needless to say but because it seems so obvious that that would be a smart thing to do but the real question that I wanted to research in my dissertation was so how does that square with being one of the principal allies of a nuclear superpower in the post war era how does that square with what we then thought of as the defining configuration of international politics which is the Cold War I was a great gratitude at the end of the Cold War it seems like a very long time ago but it was in the front that frame that I went to graduate classes taught by Bob Jervis another theorists of international relations at the Columbia and the Cold War framing and every security class was about NATO every security class focused on extended deterrence and NATO not one focus on Asia because I was a contemporary of people like Victor cha you know no Tom Christiansen who's now appears our generation but why are we talking about this in Asia why are we talking about the pressures not only of extended deterrence and alliances but why are we talking about security in the Asia Pacific why are we so my optically focused on Europe of course it was the Cold War and that's what we did in policy terms as much as in in theoretical terms so I think our generation came along as a hold on a second the dynamics of the Cold War play out differently in Asia they they they too hot wars of the Cold War we're in Asia and our allies in Asia feel the divisions of Europe though that that Europeans face the east and west on the north and south in the Korean peninsula the Japan felt it also just off shore of China and obviously of the Soviet Union at the time Sheila Smith Japan reform we've come a long way since then Japan was very resistant to seeing its own military as playing a considerable role in that Cold War it did however see great advantage to offering bases and facilities United States forward deployed its forces in the region and the self defense forces gradually developed their capability and their sense of mission and their sense of perhaps what kind of contingency might motivate the need for them to defend their country under that framing of the Cold War the Korean peninsula from the very beginning from the Korean War was the defining possibility that might bring war to the shores of Japan it has it was then in nineteen fifty it remains that way today it is the most likely place where armed force could be used in Asia and is therefore becomes the most likely way in which Japan which would become embroiled in a war now that doesn't mean that all of the self defense forces thought about what they would do in a Korean contingency a long time in Japan for the kinds of things we take for granted if you sit in Washington I suspect if you sit in Beijing but things like contingency planning or talking about what what you gonna do if the worst case scenario kind of thinking that's really the job of our military center or depart departments of defense a long time for that to be legitimate into post war Japan in the in the book I just wrote I have one chapter that's all about the Cold War I talk a little bit about that divorce really between military and civilian authority over security planning that was very much a part of the early decades of Japan's thinking in the in the postwar period but things changed after the Cold War ended and so the book that I just wrote my my dissertation some of the research of that period is in that second chapter the backgrounds after but the bulk of the book is really about the way in which different kinds of realities and pressures and thinking shapes what I think is a pretty significant transformation in Tokyo of how Japanese planners but also the public sees the utility of their military in in the post Cold War era so the book is really dated from the end of the Cold War it has structured with different ways in which this debate has played out in for different reasons and I won't tell you all the all of it because that'll be boring and you won't want to buy the book if you haven't read it yet but I do walk through one of the early pieces so that is so fundamental and hopefully and keep I can talk about this later in the context of what's happening today and that is sending the self defense forces abroad sending Japan's military out of the country and of course it was done in coalition with other partners with the United States and with the United Nations for peacekeeping operations but the end of the Cold War really brought the self defense forces more clearly into the forefront of Japanese national thinking about its role in the world now that doesn't mean that the Japanese military's mobilized and sent around the globe to attack people right it is not the framing that that that that even Mr Abbe who many people see as being quite forthright in terms of how he looks at the Japanese military very few people in Japan see that role for the military what they do see though is a role that the self defense forces can play in conjunction with other partners to help address some of the global challenges to security so you saw them first and foremost in U. N. out in Cambodia how many people here especially for those of you who have you an experience know that that mission on the on the technician I was led by a very well known U. N. diplomat was Japanese struck I see and so it was a it was a comfortable framing for the very first effort to send the self defense forces abroad to help along side others around the globe Cambodia move into a post conflict peaceful transition that was the very beginning of the self defense forces of story under the PKO law of nineteen ninety one but today the self defense forces operate across Asia across the globe in fact sometimes MP kos sometimes in humanitarian or disaster relief sometimes unilaterally are they participated in the United States is response to nine eleven they did refueling operations in the Iraq war very contentious at home but none the less that's what happened they are today in the operating in the Gulf of Eden and the anti piracy coalition organized by the United States but with many other partners as well it is the one place for those of you who like these kinds of details with the Japanese and Chinese military's operate in relatively close proximity they also the self defense forces today at the behest of the prime minister of course operate in conjunction with the Australian military the Indian military they visit the Philippines Vietnam Singapore many of the places where we think that more memory would preclude the Japanese from sending their military but they do it in a capacity is very different than the pre war period the Japanese today are helping the Filipino military specially on maritime capacity building there helping them make sure that they have the ability to defend their own waters they have visited Vietnam at the invitation of the Vietnamese government for similar reasons they work very closely with Australia all across the western Pacific on intelligence gathering surveillance monitoring all kinds of consultations now of course on the South China Sea and they're both maritime partners but they are very close security partners of the United States as well India another very interesting story the United States in India have been having exercises over the years called the Malabar exercises we typically think of them as maritime exercises but in fact they now engage all three of India's branches of the military Japan's three branches of the self defense force the maritime air and ground forces now have a strategic conversation with their with their friends in Delhi and the Malabar exercises or something the Japanese now or have been organically built into my as part of their efforts to increase their security and strategic dialogue with India so you have a very active self defense force now in the region places where you might not think that that the Japanese military would be all that welcome but in fact the Japanese military today is one of the most accomplished militaries in Asia and they are also very instrumental in making sure that other countries around the region field they can turn to Tokyo to help them if and when they get challenged by other growing larger parties in the region of course the maritime areas we see that most conspicuously but it's not exclusively the place where the where I'm referring obviously to the Chinese here but that's where the Chinese military operates in Southeast Asia Japan is Japanese military today is you know for five generations after the end of World War two was a very different military it's very professional and I think you know a lot of people have asked me what I needed to put that cover on your book I would hold it up but I don't have a copy but it has a sort of provocative provocative cover but more importantly the picture aside the title was something that I thought about a long a long time because of my work at CFR I lived in Washington as you know I spent a lot of time there both under the Obama years and how under the trump administration and officials would come to me and still come to me to say who are the Japanese rearming are they going to build a military and I thought you know we kind of have to put an end to this somehow and so the title of my book and the introductory chapter simply points out to Pam has had a significant military capability for decades it's not we are Japan has been one in terms of spending investment in military capability Japan has invested considerably in its military capability without a doubt top ten and that goes back to the nineteen eighties Sheila Smith.

Get no sympathy from Japan today readers Simon Foshan called Sakurada 's comments repugnant remarks. It would have been smarter politics. Not to make this adult old buffoon cabinet minister in the first place, and from you Bado, no one should truly be surprised by this. The LDP leaders have typically been out of touch with the people from about the week after their election. About a month prior to their next one yet once they get elected. They never listen until they want to get elected again. I get it.

This is investigative journalism at its best folks around one in ten Japanese people in their thirties has never had heterosexual sex and the number of adults with no sexual experience at all is increasing. According to a new study the study is based on data from seven rounds of the national for Tilleke survey of Japan carried out between nineteen eighty seven and two thousand fifteen which is administered by the health ministry. According to the study in two thousand fifteen eleven point nine percent of women aged between thirty and thirty four and twelve point seven percent of men in the same age group reported having had no heterosexual sexual experience in the thirty five to thirty nine eight bracket figures dropped to eight point nine percent for women and nine point five percent for men. Now, the survey data did not include information on same sex sexual experience. However, the results are. To be caused for concern given Japan's ongoing population decline and low fertility rates. Interestingly the study said it found a correlation between sex and income with men more likely to have sex if they had permanent full-time employment and they find that surprising. They also noted that while sexual activity might not be a priority for everyone. Most respondents over twenty five with no sexual experience reported hoping to get married indicating that their lack of sexual experience may be involuntary. Well, naturally Japan today readers have plenty of advice on the subject creaky comments. If lifestyles included more time off, maybe people could form relationships other than work related and perhaps enjoy having a partner for nookie and even support and love. Wow. How novel creek people having a little more time off people getting off work early to get it on late something like that does sound doable to me Smith Japan thinks that half of these studies sound. There from Perv. Megs leave it alone and let people do as a please suggesting people start getting together like the Chinese pandas on loan. It's no wonder these numbers go up. Okay. I'm not sure I buy that one. I don't think they're suggesting that people start getting it on doing like, they do on the Discovery Channel panda style. I think they're just encouraging people to be a little more intimate Gombadi Japan has two words love hotel. I see where that person's mind is good luck.

But they go on to say that they think young lovers just seem to be out of luck. In a popular story straight out of our crime section. Police in Fukuoka are tackling a shortage of female recruits through a fashion show social networking sites and online videos aimed at female high school and university students the fashion show is just one of the methods. The police force in the southwestern prefecture is utilizing in order to increase the percentage of its female recruits for the fashion show, the police invited about one hundred high school in university students as female police officers wearing a variety of work. Uniforms, walked along the runway to upbeat music the uniforms exhibited the range of departments in the police force, including those for motorcycle riders as well as those worn in crime labs. I'm wondering if this is in here because there is a fashion crime being committed as well female police officers introduced their departments in presentations following the show, and they even showed attendees how to take fingerprints. From the bottle, all joking aside. The percentage of female recruits by the Fukuoka police was the lowest in the country in fiscal two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen at six point nine and seven point three percent, respectively compared to the national average of around nine percent also from this month. Fukuoka police having creased female only facilities such as napping and changing rooms in an attempt to improve working conditions there. Well, that's here from Japan today. Readers alley Rustam observes, what do you expect from a country that has a TV show called miniskirt police? Well, that's documentary isn't Glenda straw says.

Nintendo is one court battle against a popular go-cart operator that allows drivers to dress up as Super Mario and other game characters to zip through the streets of Tokyo and other major Japanese cities, the convoys of go-carts driven by people who are usually tourists dressed up as Mario Yoshi, Princess peach and other popular Nintendo characters are a frequent sight buzzing around busy metropolitan streets. Unlike many countries, Japan has no ban on people driving, go karts on public roads. Nintendo said the ruling blocks, the Mari car go-cart service from lending Maryoto and other characters costumes to its customers. Nintendo complained. It's popular racing game. Mariel cart is known widely as Mary car, similar to the go kart services name. It also argued that the go kart company had not been given permission to allow drivers to dress up as its characters or use photo in video footage from the racing game in its publicity materials. The go cart operator Mahdi mobility, which has. Changed his sufficient name from Monte car said it will review the court ruling before deciding what to do next. This is interesting. The company website says it is in no way a reflection of Nintendo's Mary cart and tells customers not to raise one another or throw banana peels or read turtle shells. These are all things that you can do in attended super-popular racing game. Well, the go garters don't get much sympathy from Japan today readers. Vince black says, when I see these damn things, I consider throwing a banana peel or tortoiseshell at them to slow them down. If you have them on hand, I guess, and you body writes, good.

According to police, Emory Suzuki turned herself in at a police station in oughta cow award and said she had left her baby's remains in a locker at a nearby JR train station in Taito ward on September. Thirteenth police went to that locker and inside they found the infants remains in a plastic bag inside of tote bag. Suzuki who we need to tell you has no fixed address or employment. That's part of the story here told police. She had given birth to the baby in a hotel room for five years earlier. She said the baby was stillborn and she panicked because she didn't know what to do with it. So she placed the infant's body in. Various lockers at the station for the past few years. She would go back to those lockers every few days and put coins in to keep them sealed up. Suzuki told police. She was a victim from the place where she had been staying and forgot to take the locker key with her. So she decided to tell the authorities about what she had done before. Somebody else found that he, let's hear from Japan today readers Smith, Japan writes, it is sad, especially when you keep in mind that many here are still against the idea baby hatches because they claim it will lead to people being irresponsible, and then this for those of you who don't know what baby hatches are baby hatches are spots at hospitals where wait a minute, let's ask an expert. Hey, Siri, what's a baby hatch, baby hatch. Baby box is a place where people can bring babies, usually newborn and abandoned them anonymously in a safe place to be found and cared for.
