gunsmack: Forgive my ignorance of Japanese culture but why do the Tokyo Police have "Police" written in English on their shields? You'd think there would be a Kanji word or symbol for that.


To prevent misunderstandings when dealing with tourists/visitors who don't read Japanese?

That article was a little creepily chatty and semi-admiring.  They pull it from one of the yakuza watch magazines or something?

"There's a war between the old guard; Sugai, and the new blood; Sato"

"How many people know about this?"

"Including you and me? 14 million"


It's been a million years since I watched Black Rain, and I'd somehow forgotten Kate Capshaw in that dress. Yum!

That was a good read. I always thought that the yakuza were more comic book characters than real. The interaction with the police and Japanese society as a whole is fascinating.

No, but it was written by Jake Adelstein, the self-appointed, self-aggrandizing "journalist" whose claim to fame is that the yakuza love him.

According to Jake, that is.
