Times are changing? Why? Have they only recently introduced insulin for diabetics in Japan?

No, they've had it for years. Maybe the sub-ed who captioned the photo didn't know that though.

Likely due to the surge in foreign tourists, some less well mannered types leave their syringes lying around for children to injure themselves on

While there may be many people requiring legitimate uses of such items, I hope the government is not showing tolerance for illegitimate users.
