This ban on non-Japanese residents of Japan being able to return home in the event that they have to leave ought to be headline news every day until it is changed. It is the most blatantly unfair, discriminatory policy I think I've ever seen since being here and I don't understand why it's not being challenged and why most people in the country are totally unaware of it.

Banning foreigners despite a valid visa for residency and the lack of coverage in media shows the true level of omotenashi towards gaijin in Japan. No wonder a lot of foreigners feel like second class citizens here.

@Mable, Spot on. I was going to comment on personal experience but it may be offensive to some.
