All the really high-end French reds go to China. Japan gets this ripple. That is telling.

Lego theft is a big thing in Europe. Not only are the sets valuable, but they can be separated and all the parts sold separately, often for a higher total than the set, meaning they are impossible to trace. Also, a recent economics study found that Lego sets appreciate in value faster than gold.

It's that time of year again. The Japanese media will create a lot of buzz and he will not win again. A few years ago, a Japanese lit professor was on TV saying that he knew that Murakami had been shortlisted at least 3 times, even though the nomination process is sealed for 50 years.

The government doesn't seem to care about issues until a celebrity is involved, so hopefully this will get the ball rolling.

And they threw Ghosn under the EV bus because he wanted to merge the two companies.

Will this apply to Japanese tourist from other parts of Japan? It is not hard to guess the answer to that one.

Circumstances in each country are different.
This is the old "Japan is a completely unique country so other countries can't tell us what to do" excuse. But the circumstances are not really different. There are gay couples who want to get married. They fought for that in other countries and in Japan they are still fighting for it.

Probably more painful for the people he fired with not notice, then didn't pay the severance pay that he said would make it all OK.

Saying that Japan does not currently allow same-sex marriage is stating a fact. Claiming that this is not discriminatory is Orwellian double-speak. If prohibiting some people from doing something while allowing others to do it is not discrimination, then what is?
Also, good job saying this right before Japan hosts the G7.

Allowing some people to do something while not allowing other people to do that same thing is the definition of discrimination.

Or is this just a show to give the impression that the government is tough on Denstsu, while allowing the company to do whatever it likes?

This is a welcome change from yesterday, when Kishida said he had no intention of letting him resign. What this arrogant jerk doesn't understand is that when he signs a execution order, he is doing it in the name of the Japanese public, a portion of which is against the death penalty, and a larger portion thinks it is nothing to joke about.

It does cause harm to the child. Imagine how a kid would be treated if other kids found out they had "two mommy's".
This was the logic behind banning people of different racial backgrounds from marrying in 1950s America.

Hollywood accounting! They are moving some of the expenses over to other events or budgets in a desperate attempt to win back public approval. Too late, guys.

Don't forget that if people pay for their own test and then test positive, it does not go into the official count. That ups the number. The 20 million are only the people approved for testing by the hokenjo who tested positive and early in the pandemic, many people who wanted to be tested were refused because they did not have a high enough fever. The real figure is probably much higher.

He was disdainful of the constitution and democracy and displayed a poor understanding of the financial circumstances of the average resident of Japan. Yet we have to pay for his funeral. His family or his political party have more than enough money to pay for this.

The government just announced that people don't need to wear masks outdoors if they are 2 meters away from others. But that doesn't apply to tourists. Who will check?
