Fumio Sakuragi comments

Posted in: 8 French people caught in Hokkaido avalanche; 1 dead See in context

Many thanks for the web links. But I was yet unable to know for sure whether Asahi's " Signs and netting mark off the boundaries of the ski trails(, but the group still went outside the designated zone, according to the officials)" was sufficiently written in French or other non-Japanese. I would have abstained from generalizing. Especially so, as another commenter "powderb" deplored the way the victim's name was specifically disclosed.

What a callous way of reporting by Kyodo, no matter how important that caveat-warning may have been sooner propagated to visitors!

The parenthesized part in Asahi's description, furthermore, seems little like a fact. It seems to have been assumed by an Asahi reporter. Local vernaculars make little of due principles taught at Journalism 101: distinction between fact and opinion. We have no way of ascertaining whether the French crew have purportedly crossed. My heart to the deceased family.
