What is better in everyones opinion?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Japanese?
Brazilian deals more with ground fighting and wrestling.
Japanese does more throws and weapon defenses,such as Knives,bottles,bats,and swords.

I agree,and also it isn't very practical to be fighting on the floor in a street fight,leaving yourself open to attack from the attackers friends.

Maybe this is bias as I'm a practitioner of Ju-Jutsu but the original Japanese art is better. BJJ deals more with ground work and as War Lord said it's not the best idea to go throwing yourself onto the ground and grappling as your opponent could have friends with him. The Japanese style is better rounded with throws, locks, breaks, atemi, defense from weapons and how to deal with more then one opponent as well as what BJJ is composed of, namely takedowns, chokes and strangles.

As a practioner of BJJ within Jeet Kune Do i would agree as BJJ does have alot on focusing on holds and doesnt really have much stand up apart from shooting in and grappling.

Japanese Jujutsu (and that is the correct current romanization) varies a lot, so you'd really need to be more specific to ask such a question. Additionally, BJJ is of japanese in origin, and doesnt contain anything thats technically outside the realm of judo, which Kano distilled from several major ryu.

Also, a lot of fights go to ground anyway, so if you assume thats going to happen, and train for it you have the upper hand, not that i'd particularly like to be there, but you dont always get a choice....
