Unverifiable etc.[edit]

I took off the original research and self-citing tags with the compromise of removing some of the more trivial details (e.g. the party splintered badly). It's a pretty well documented event, and I think it's perfectly fine to let basic reports of the party slide, as the event has been covered on Japanese television and newspapers.Illuminatedwax 02:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I haven't gotten around to researching it, but can we find more reliable sources (in English if possible)? I'm going to reinsert the self-cite tag, because right now, all the cited sources are people's personal pages, which don't meet WP:RS. --Ytny (talk) 03:08, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
I took some time to research it, and found an old Mainichi Shinbun article from 2005, so I took the self-citing tag off. Unfortunately the US embassy doesn't have the warning on their homepage anymore. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 218.130.220.28 (talk) 14:55, 16 March 2007 (UTC).

Fares[edit]

Can we get some information on fares etc? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.147.223.154 (talk) 01:19, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Fares are a tricky thing because all JR trains in Osaka are listed on the same fare table, and fares from one point to another all differ depending on where you are. Thinking about it as a single line, like Amtrak, is the wrong idea. I will add a link to Hyperdia, though. Illuminatedwax (talk) 19:09, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Although it is impossible to cover all of fare rules applicable to any travels on the line, some special rules concerning the Osaka Loop Line are interesting. So I added a new section about fares that describes those special rules. --Sushiya (talk) 10:19, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
