Posted in: France respects Japan's judicial procedures regarding Ghosn: Le Drian See in context

Recommend another opinion on this as in FT ( Financial Times ) or the Asahi where some details read as:

“The FT said prosecutors had confiscated his wife's Lebanese passport in a dawn raid on their apartment in central Tokyo on Thursday morning, but did not discover her U.S. passport.

Under Japanese law, prosecutors will be able to hold Ghosn for up to 22 days without charging him. The fresh arrest opens up the possibility that he will be interrogated again without his lawyer present, as is the norm in Japan.“

Posted in: Gov't says official translation for next era name Reiwa is 'beautiful harmony' See in context

Lets reflect on the term Heisei era. In the beginning it meant something like „ becoming equal“ among the locals. Now it turns out to be the age of „ power to the powerful“ in afterthoughts. Which is conservatism.

As for „Rei“ 4th graders learn that with two strokes upfront it’s used in refrigerator as being the local reizouko. 

While the use of „Wa“ was turned upside down during Shōwa era.

So what a rather dreadful term this is.
