Posted in: Japan to allow 20,000 daily international arrivals from June See in context

Japan effectively closed its doors to nonresident foreign nationals

Don't you dare white wash it, for at least a year Japan closed the border to all foreigners even if they had spouse visa or were PR. Had no plans to help PR's get back to Japan allowing their visas to expire. It was only late last year Japan decided not allow family's not to be broken and divided and starting allowing the "non tourist" status.

Posted in: Japan OKs plan to release Fukushima nuclear plant wastewater See in context

Japan does NOT OK release of the water... I don't remember voting to release it? No one in Japan wants to release it... they should store it until they figure out a way to clean it... hell put up a prize for it, get a bunch of universities to enter... much better!

Encouraging but still way to slow. Wish they had done this last month before both JAL and Qantas cancelled all direct flights until September from Australia.

Posted in: Japan to ease COVID border controls 'in stages' from June: Kishida See in context

@WhiskeyGalore: Hopefully everyone including Japanese are...

If you are double (or more) jabbed you don't need to quarantine anymore as long as you show a recent test, your vacination certificate, install the tracking app on your phone (don't down vote me for this I also agree this sucks) and wear a mask.

Posted in: Japan to require listed firms to disclose female manager ratio See in context

Seen it before where companies token hire and gives these hires "management" titles that really don't do what their title suggests but count to the ratio.

Some examples:

"Chief wellness officer" = HR manager

"Chief people officer" = Account manager / Sales

"Chief excellence officer" (yes I have seen it) = Sales coach

Posted in: Man indicted for selling 130,000 syringes to drug dealers See in context

I'm not promoting drug use but when did selling syringes become illegal? What law did he break?

Can you get arrested for selling a regular kitchen knife to someone if they inturn stab someone?

Posted in: 10 confirmed dead after tour boat with 26 goes missing off Hokkaido See in context

I find it odd that they were only saying that 8 were unconscious.

In Japan only a doctor can classify someone as dead thus media have to report in this way until official reports are released.

Unless Japan raises wages to international standards the only international "talent" you are going to get is the ones you see on Japanese TV.

Articles from other sites have already pointed out there is no change. They just reclassified 106 counties but are still not giving out visas so it is 100% meaningless!
