Posted in: Faring badly: Uber struggles to make inroads in Japan See in context

Uber is "struggling" in Japan because it's legally not allowed to operate here as a ride sharing service, which is it's primary business arena. This is common knowledge. Writing an article that paints Uber's "struggles" in Japan as a result of Japanese consumers being risk averse is literally the definition of fake news: there is not a shred of plausible evidence to back up this claim, because there can't be, because Japanese consumers have never had the opportunity to choose whether or not to use Uber (or Lyft, Grab, etc). Uber is not in Japan because of structural impediments, NOT because of (some widely misplaced notion) of Japanese cultural aversion to new things. This is one of the worst articles I have ever read on Japan Today.
