Most people will be back on the packed trains first thing Monday morning.

Now that the number one priority has been put on the back burner, good to see they're finally starting to admit this instead of patting themselves on the back.

Fully justified given Abe's data on the number of cases and his success in curtailing the spread. I mean, what else do the school boards have to go on? The leader of the country said they're making progress, that the numbers are encouraging low, and that he remains cautiously optimistic. He also expressed the hope that kids can get back to school as soon as possible.

Trying desperately to keep the bourses up via artificial quantitative easing misses the point completely about this crisis, and indicates a economy that has become far too skewed on debt and consumer spending. Coronavirus isn't about liquidity on wall street, and I wouldn't mind seeing a significant drop that better reflects realities. I wonder what the fed will do next week, and the week after that, as this drags on, and after having used up much of its arsenal already...

Not a single reporter at that press conference challenged his "data" about the number of cases in Japan. Not a single one questioned her the numbers could possibly be accurate when very few are being tested. It was a pre-scripted chaban.

Not available for Netflix in Japan though (or Canada and the US for that matter).

Succumbing to Japanese government pressure to self-censor. For shame!

Mothers in international marriages should not have to find it difficult to escape abuse and keep their children with them. The fathers use international law to continue to abuse their ex wives.
Huh? How exactly does one "use international law" to commit abuse? What rubbish.

Where are they going? We have a right to know.

The Olympics is basically a huge tax drain on the citizens of the host country.
Every single Oympics I've experienced in my life, whether summer or winter, or other events such as the World Cup, have been preceded by comments such as this from people who want every societal ill solved prior to hosting a sporting event. And yet, every single Olympics has ended as a resounding success for the city in question. Weird eh?

Sounds like the key issue legal dispute revolved purely around whether the images were based on actual photos. In other words, if he had made his "art" solely from the imagination, it would have been perfectly legal. Japan's legal system totally missing the point yet again.

Japanese media certainly giving him quite the platform. Put him to death already.
Also, amusing (scary?) from the picture that a certain demographic appears to be attracted to this trial.

The attack came as Mitsubishi Electric has been strengthening its cybersecurity business, offering services on protection at data centers, office buildings and public facilities since July last year.
Typical Japanese megacorp strategy. Move into a field you don't quite understand and sell it to people who know even less but trust your name.

Moral of the story is to not live in apartments in Japan. Buy a house.

This is the result of a bunch of ex-GE (Jack Walsh trained numbers guys seeking efficiencies) guys coming into senior management positions, rather than the traditional engineers who actually know the airline business and understand why you don't always go for the cheapest supplier.
Unfortunately, the new CEO's background is as an ex-GE accountant and then hedge fund manager.

Four workers (not counting Koike) to assist a wheelchair to get on a bus?! Hardly what I'd call "barrier free". Wasn't there a labour shortage in this country?

The government itself still continues to give Dentsu a lot of work, them cleaning up on the Olympics contracts being a case in point. If the government were actually serious about punishing them, they would've barred Dentsu from government contracts. But they never were serious, they just wanted to make a symbolic gesture, then get back to business as usual.

They were in a "light car", meaning a Kei-car. You will be crumpled in any sort of impact in a kei-car, given the relative lack of crash-protection. The people in the minivan were ok.

A merger of two losers. Nothing more than a desperate bid to stave off the inevitable.

Great advice on how to better your chances of getting away with committing rape!

The fact that MOFA isn't leaping to his defence might suggest he's guilty.

Police said Kaneda was neither using earphones nor walking while using a smartphone at the time of the accident.
Good, nipping potential victim-blaming in the bud before it starts.

This man made the mistake of thinking the Japanese authorities and public cared whether he lived or died.

Headline should read "Keikyu to normalize train service after confirming the cause and making sure it doesn't happen again".
Yes, Keikyu needs to take full responsibility for all truck drivers who misjudge turns, and guarantee that none shall ever misjudge a turn ever again, and the headline should reflect that.

But there are very, VERY few gutless punks ready to pick on, rob or kill child, female or elderly people in Japan. On the contrary, it's extremely safe for these groups of people in comparison to almost every other country on this planet.
Really? You'd need to pretty naive to believe that. I assume you're taking official statistics as your source (correct me if I'm wrong). Other than murder, all of the other crimes mentioned have a low chance of being reported in Japan. Otherwise, your capacity for unomi stretches the bounds of credulity.
