Jobs availability improved, however, those are still low-paying jobs that no-one wants to do besides foreigners and desperate people who cant find another way to make money.

This will solve the problem.

Strange that there is still someone other than tourist who wants to come to Japan since economy is bad, yen is cheap.
Most of my friends who have been here for years are leaving this year due to the deteriorating conditions, higher wages in their home countries.
I have a bad feeling that this is going to end up badly fot Japan.

It isn’t easy for some people to get the financial services and assistance they may need in Japan, so we want to be the bank they can turn to.
I remember when I came to Japan and got my first Bank card, it was ATM Bank card and I could just withdraw my money nothing else. While in Canada you can or Western countries you can get debit or credit card depending on bank. It wasn't so long time ago and not much changed. If you want foreigner to be a part of society threat then equal.

I have nothing against Chinese travellers however the cases of COVID-19 is skyrocketing in China so it is better to keep them away for a while.
If they really want to come they should show a proof of vaccination or take a test before coming to Japan.
Stay safe folks!

The consumption tax will be raised guys I told you that long time ago. Maybe to 15% within few years.
They need to have cash to cover for all that social programs like childcare, free education for Kumiko child or 5000 yen to all elders etc.
Why do you think defense spending is not covered by bonds? Because they are running out of buyers.

This is ridiculous.
Japan is paying 1 million to move to countryside while The Tokyo metropolitan government has decided it will provide free childcare for a second child aged between 0 and 2 for all Tokyo households from fiscal 2023,
Politicians have no idea what they are doing.

Taxes need to go up to cover for declining birth rate and aging society.
There is no way around it, LET THAT SINK IN.

I wouldn't call it journalism or that they are journalists. They are just propaganda tubes for those in power or those who pay them more.
You pay them = they will write whatever you want.
I always check the news from several sources make my own research and make my own conclusion. That way I never had any problem with misinformation by so-called journalists.

That would be a great move!
Those with masks are potentially with virus and without mask are healthy.
Mask mandated will be gone quickly!

I tell you guys the government instead of creating environment for young generation so they can have kids they rely on couples that already have kids.
That actually decided to have kids before and without any support that came recently of 5000 yen, 60 000 yen or free education.

Should be deported after failing once. However if Japan wants to give them second chance the they are more than welcome. However I think twice is enough.
After that they should be deported asap.

Well seems like Uniqlo employees won't be happy with 40% pay raise for too long.
Soon when the company starts to slide down and "early retirements" packages will roll on then they will realize what is going on.

War is what is coming. Everyone can see it but many pretend everything is normal.
As I said before have your extra passport ready because the time to run away from Japan will come.

"Volunteers are not teachers...What we most need, especially in areas where there are few Japanese schools, is for local governments to take responsibility for absolute beginners," Hayashikawa said.
Guys it is all about THE MONEY. The government should take the responsibility and hire regular teachers so as the Japanese population declines and so many teachers won't be needed anymore they will take care of foreigners and teach them Japanese.
Of course the money will come from taxes.
Also remember the classes will only be available from Monday to Friday between 9:00-17:00 so none of those foreigners can use them as they will be at work.
Personally I greatly support volunteer classes the are in the evening or late afternoon so a lot of people can use them.
