As Alfie Noakes said, Japan is a monarchy. The wife of the PM is not the first lady. If we must call someone the first lady of Japan, it would be the Empress of Japan. The wife of a prime minister is not called the first lady in any constitutional monarchy.

I wonder if all of the medical diagnostic features of the new Apple Watch will be available in Japan? They haven't been in the past if you bought a watch in Japan.

Suffocation by occlusion of the nose and mouth with duct tape as a method of suicide is more common than people know. What a terrible way to die. Poor young man.

Is this a job in Japan? In America, it's simply a license to sign certain things but it isn't a job. I'm a notary public and so are many lawyers, accountants, secretaries, bankers, accountants, and everyday people.
Yes, it's a job. In some places outside Japan, for example, in Louisiana in the USA and in British Columbia, Canada, notary publics are their own profession with significant responsibilities and legal powers.

It'd be nice if they left a few non-automatic break ones for us that don't want it.
Speed's grandfather circa 1968, "It'd be nice if they left a few without seatbelts for us that don't want it".

The chance that this will have any effect at all is infinitesimally small. If I have to show ID and explain why I'm buying gasoline I'm going to a different gasoline stand.
If you're filling your car, they are not going to ask for your ID. Also, where are you going to find gasoline if every station asks for your ID?

And Japan is the victim of drifted wastes from China and Korea
I live on the Sea of Japan, and when I've been to the beach the washed up garbage is all in Japanese. I rarely see anything with Chinese or Korean on it.

They don't accept the 2015 deal, but they accept the money. Interesting.

Rather than foul play, it's more likely that she's decided to disappear or even kill herself as the suicide rate in Canada is about five times higher than the murder rate, and even higher in Japan. Sadly Japanese women who have gotten themselves in the news in Canada harmed themselves or others. Google Rie Fujii (Calgary) and Ayano Tokumasu (Niagra Falls) as sad examples.

Most dogs in Japan are housebound. How are they going to get rabies? Wild animals like bats and foxes are the most common vector for rabies. My two dogs don't cavort with bats and foxes. If my housebound dogs who take leashed walks are at risk of rabies, then so am I and everyone else. We should all be inoculated then.

Ironically, this new app not available in the Japanese store. The link in the story is for the US store, and a search of the Japanese App Store yields nothing but the free iPad version.
