"We may see an impact on our sales as 80 percent of visiting foreign customers at our flagship Hankyu department store in Osaka are Chinese,"

Oh poor you! Boohoo, cannot get your profit that is more worth than a few lives. Thats why I said before, don't rely on tourism for profit because once that peak drops a LOT of businesses will suffer.

For sure China has already thousands of cases not hundreds and their priority is to conceal not prevent or cure.

This! And lunar new year is starting this weekend so expect a serious increase in infections here as well.

While I applaud this stance, I'm pretty sure this will increase illegal dumping.

Posted in: China reports second death in coronavirus outbreak See in context

The Japanese man developed a fever and cough on Jan. 3 while in Wuhan, returned to Japan on Jan. 6, and was hospitalized four days later as the symptoms persisted.

A plane, possibly also a trainride and four days before being hospitalized. I wonder if he infected anyone else.

I wonder if Ghosn will still pay him something for helping him, as a courtesy at least.

NOONE holds their hand or elbow in front of their mouth when they cough or sneeze in public. And people wonder why viruses spread so quickly.

Posted in: Woman unharmed after being held hostage for 18 hours See in context

The sources added that the man is believed to have had relationship problems with someone at the company, though not the president nor the woman he took hostage.

Then who? Or did he just want to be in jail to get a free bed and a meal?

Oeeeehhh, two weeks off. And this is suppose to make a point? Two weeks is NOTHING. Do they know anything about child-rearing in Kasumigaseki? Ridiculous.

Posted in: Japanese gov't, prosecutors, Nissan call Ghosn's accusations baseless See in context

Why is Saikawa even asked for his comment on the matter? Glad Ghosn could give his say finally but I'm extremely troubled that NOTHING in the system will change. There is no real justice in Japan.

Posted in: Ghosn denies wrongdoing; says his arrest in Japan a conspiracy See in context

I watched the whole presentation. He obliterated all the charges against him, and this whole case. He strike me as a very smart man. 

> I also watched the whole presentation and agree, I feel Ghosn showed his intelligence, leadership and even respect for Japan. He is a true leader, and will make an excellent university professor. He deserves the respect the world gave him yesterday.

Don't forget, the prosecutors interrogated him for over 8 hours a day for over a year and he didn't give in to a forced confession. I think many would've been broken after a week, or even a month. God, I hope some prosecutors heads roll.

Posted in: Japanese gov't, prosecutors condemn Ghosn's remarks in Lebanon See in context

99.4% conviction rate my %$#. As Ghosn says, the prosecutors pull the strings in every case, not the judges. How many people have been convicted falsely for giving a forced confession I wonder, that number must be extremely high. They have been trying to break Ghosn for more than a year, of course they are mad.

Posted in: Ghosn's legal team accuses Nissan of 'perversion of truth' See in context

In their statement, Ghosn's lawyers said Nissan "never once" tried to interview the executive, or share with him evidence it had accumulated against him.

> The statement also charged that Latham & Watkins, the law firm that assisted Nissan's investigation, was not independent because it has long acted as outside counsel for the company.

> Saikawa resigned last year after admitting he had been overpaid in violation of internal procedures.

This! Saikawa is equally guilty but he just bows and gets off the hook? It all stinks.

Wow, everyone that was on Ghosn's side is not a target. What on earth happened to Kelly btw? Did he leave Japan? Maybe they will re-arrest him? I hope Ghosn has some BIG news to tear the system apart, this 'justice' system is a farce

Posted in: Ghosn says he will reveal names of Japan gov't officials behind his arrest See in context

I'm not getting my hopes up, even though he might have evidence, Japanese TV will spin it like he is the devil. But im interested who he will name. Saikawa at least and some in the government?

There are some b*tts clenching up in Kasumigaseki right now.

Posted in: More details emerge on Ghosn's escape from Japan See in context

Japan's transport ministry told AFP that luggage checks are not mandatory for private jets.

And nobody is surprised? I never knew about this. This means people with private jets could smuggle just about anything out of Japan? I guess there is still customs for rich people entering Japan.

That aside, I really want Ghosn to come out with something huge, because now he just made the situation worse for 'honest' foreigners.

COMON JT fix the CRSF stuff

For people who are interested, there is something similar called BOOK AND BED TOKYO in Shinsaibashi Osaka as well.

Referring to the latest warning issued to Dentsu, Takahashi wrote: “I feel as if my daughter’s life and dignity have been trampled on once again by Dentsu. The Japanese government should take stronger preventative measures and treat this issue with a greater sense of crisis.”

Dentsu is unbelievable. Caused suicide, and STILL doing the same shady stuff. Heads should roll, or it will never stop.

Tragic and it will sadly happen again.

It's interesting that after those tsunamis Hollywood always portrayed tsunamis as big tidal waves since there was no real footage. It was after the Japanese tsunamis that everyone realized that it was just rising water levels.

Let's hope we never have to witness something like this again.

Anyone believing they haven't already secretly started dumping the water into the ocean is wearing blindfolds. 100% sure there are so many cover ups going on RIGHT now that will come to light in the future. I have absolutely 0% faith in the current government to handle this legitimately .
