Guess why this happens? When you (nhk, japan) engage on discussions that are foreign to your reality, life or culture.
Why do Japan needs to create awareness on this? There are certainly none of these problems here.
They should let the countries with this problem to handle it.

This all has nothing to do with economy or trade. Is this ancient hatred koreand have towards the Japanese.
It's like, because being South American, like I would stay hate Spain.
Even Israel people have no quarrel with Germany.
Japan changed. Grow up korea.

Haiti, Chile, NZ, all had quakes last week. It was to be expected Japan would be hit as well.
I failed to see on TV any comments about this. Thought it was pretty much common sense.
Might be wrong

Wjile myself, as many of the people commenting here, received my "share" of safe discipline back in the days, we have to understand that the line between breaking an arm and slap on the wrist, is not clear for everyone.
This is because I support the law and applaud it.
After all, at this point humanity knows better (at least in developed countries).

And in the process you would see a decrease in suicide rate, hikikomori and other types of mental illness.

I can't imagine a job where high heels are necessary.
Certain type of shoes (like no sneakers) makes sense to me, specially if facing customers, but my brain fails to understand why high heels would ever be considered as necessary.

Remember the metro in Lausanne, Switzerland. Totally automated. It ran both directions and part of the tracks were single sided. Never heard of an accident.
That being said, the technology is there since years ago. The man behind the keyboard is the problem, ironically

he feels he was cheated by the cooperative and stressed that he still wants to work in Japan.
Well, suing a company because not being able to meet the minimal Japanese expectations won't get him much chances of doing so.
Think for a minute all the cost the cooperative has incurred to train this guy for 3 months, for nothing.
He wouldn't be rejected unless his Japanese is truly horrible.
Feel sorry for Japan having to suffer from opportunist like this guy.

Somebody who expects to stuff his luggage with hundred of bugs and expect to pass airport security, doesn't seem like a criminal Mastermind.
Have to give him that he knows how to catch his bugs.
Let the poor soul go, or be prosecuted in japan. They will break it in an Ecuador Jail.

Well, good luck for those brave foreigners willing to work on a Japanese company's office.

When will Japan start with a serious modification to their work customs.
You need both parties to be willing in order for this schema to work.
The companies, of course, but without employees following, it wouldn't be possible. With labor shortage there is no excuse for an employee to eat dirt and not moving to somewhere else.
This change is cultural and one simple law to restrict working hours won't be enough.

Is not just children, right? Of course there are scientific reasons involving puberty and all, but Japan society is just insane in terms of pressure coming from all directions.
I hope to see the day this society starts changing and value more people's happiness and not just the forms and traditions. It's just sad

I wonder what the rationale is here. Because once in history an idiot decided to do that, means that everyone must be told not to be an idiot? Agree with the comment above. It would be great if they could sue his ass.
