Koreans must have paid huge donation to NY State assemblyman. American politics at its worse as "Everything has a price".

Companies and schools should also shoulder the blame. They need to constantly prompt and remind these workers to renew paperwork and not just be complacent about it.

Asia is increasingly becoming a danger zone and it's better to be safe than sorry. Good luck Japan.

If the same 20 actors and actresses are making movies in Hollywood, how could they not be the highest paid celebrities?? If roles were given to other up and coming new actors, sure the numbers will be a lot lower.

"It's easier to blame someone than to fix your own mistakes and do better". Thank you Korea for reminding us this lesson every so many years.

These are all Hollywood's farce marriages. Other examples would be Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra etc.... Only believe the marriage is real when they have kids. Marriage among US celebrities is the same as saying "I do" in Vegas.

Thank Moon for this mess. His strategy all along was to work together with North Korea for China. Great diversion for China to flex military muscle on Hong Kong and subsequently Taiwan. People of South Korea and Japan need to wake up and cooperate.

Hope this guy gets capital punishment. If this man gets away with lifetime prison sentence by pleading insanity, it will be an embarrassment of the Japanese judicial system. This coward didn't think twice about taking other people's lives. Lets see how he responds/feels when his own is at stake.

Shame on Japanese government for having an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. Any country that doesn't take care of its children/youth have a bleak future.

Who cares what anyone wants to do with/to their own body? We would have never known they had tattoos if they were clothed. Since it was their own decision, I'm sure they're willing to live with the consequences.

More people working and consuming and contributing to sales tax is not a bad thing for Japan.

Posted in: Ghosn, lawyer protest his rearrest; prosecutors confiscate Ghosn's wife's passport, mobile phone See in context

What is Nissan prosecution trying to do? Trying to recover more money?? So they had no problem going into joint venture in 1999 and receiving money to save company and now it's a smear campaign for "unethical practices" for the man who brought Nissan from falling into abyss? This is a good warning to other foreign companies to not throw a life-line or go into joint alliance with any failing Japanese company. Might as well wait until the company goes bankrupt and take total control of management and operation.

Don't see any incentive for foreign workers in doing this. So after 3 years of internship, then right to obtain new visa? then what?? Many other Asian countries are or will be having huge graying population problem. Might as well go to other countries that offer workers to settle, raise families and seek secure life. Wake up and smell the coffee Japan!

Not only is this law antiquated, the reality I think is that they just don't know what to do or how to go about such complex judicial transaction thus offer only black or white resolution "keep it or lose it" or "with us or against us" mentality.

Posted in: Honey the lonely dolphin, abandoned in aquarium, sparks public outcry See in context

Agree that Japanese government, going forward should have strict regulations in place for any company/municipalities wanting to open zoo and/or aquarium. They need treat them just like financial institutions. Entities must allocate certain amount of capital/reserve set aside to care for these animals apart from annual operating expenses. In other words, unless they pass basic "financial stress test", these entities should not be granted any license or certification to operate zoos/aquarium. This stress test must be passed every year if not every other year in order for them to keep operating. If they fail, entities must hand over animals to sanctuaries using their own reserve set aside. This will act as deterrent to any entities wishing to open zoo/aquarium to not take it's financial and moral obligation to living creatures lightly.
