@Jalapeno

You are right when you say it is important to focus on Japanese lady who spoke to the company.

The English translation does not really convey all the nuances of what the driver said. 本日は多数の外国人のお客さま>が乗車されており、大変混雑しておりますので、日本人のお客さまにはご不便をおかけしております. We have a lot >of international guests/customers on our train today and it is extremely crowded, so I am afraid I must ask our >Japanese guests/customers to be patient.

No, sorry, 不便をおかけしております is not be patient but "sorry to cause you inconvenience" I would like to know how this driver categorizes Gaikokujin? Can he recognize Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese or just picking up non Asian looking people? I fear the latter....

Until Japanese major corporate begins with targeting overseeing markets changing marketing approach (dumb CMs, pink products, you see only in Japan) that will not change. Samsung is a very interesting best practices case.

for us long stayers, not a surprise. Mc Donald's western nerd, katakana subtitles, gai san or gaijin san. Japanese have thousands of complexes, inferiority complex is for sure among them

The tanks strategy is brillant. Pour water on the three sinking melted cores, and then put the water in the tanks. In this way, I think they are aiming to cover up all Japan territory with bolted-in water tanks. There is still a lot of empty space, go for it.

First priority for Abe is the case of Hashimoto brain abduction by a misterious force. He needs to rescue it for the future of the country

This guy speaks before switching on the brain in advance and then - as a good Japanese - just apologies, because if you apologies afterwards you are allowed to say and do whatever you want in Japan. It is a free for all ticket.
