Because the yen is cheap all global Japanese companies are pushing out products as hard as they can, while they can, the same companies and almost the only companies to raise wages by a noteworthy amount, which then the BOJ used to justify the interest rate hike which they hoped would strengthen the yen, which in that case would make those companies that raised wages lose money and make them probably cut bonuses of those same employees :P.

The photo looks like exports of used cars.

There are two older BMWs and a Volvo there too.

That is a large ship so I wonder where the destination is?

2nd hand cars are being loaded in the picture.

Japanese cannot afford to keep cars and most live in big cities where they don’t really need them.
