 They merely use him to be the gaijin frontman for all the restructuring, downsizing and clearing out of the corporate deadwood that needs to be done if Olympus is to be restored to profitability.

Restored to profitability? This sentence alone tells me how out of touch you are lol. Olympus is doing outstandingly well for more than a couple of years now if you ask me. It's restructuring is complete(done by a Japanese CEO) and is only focused on growth right now.

he is amazing, but the exaggeration of his skill compared to other world greats is, as always, overinflated.

Let's be honest. If it wasn't for the terrible 2019 accident, Momota would have been the greatest player of all time in the history of the sport.

The British Olympic Association made no attempt to defend Ujah's actions.

“We welcome his contrition. That said, this should act as a salutary message for anyone — British or otherwise — who is doping or considering doping as a way of boosting their athletic performance," the BOA said in a statement. "You will get caught. You are not welcome on our team and nor are you representative of our values, or of our nation.”

I can sympathize with Sony that it is all that their pocket can afford.

Sony's on a 18 billion dollar spending spree.

Japanese game software industry is dying. For some reason, Japanese were left behind when game development went from being an art to an engineering.

Elden Ring(Hidetaka Miyazaki X George RR Martin), The game made by From Software(owned by Kadokawa) is the most anticipated game of the year(already topping Sales charts even before coming out). Animal Crossing is the best performing Game of last year, Pokemon Arceus is Crushing Sales records this year and so will Zelda Breadth of the wild 2 when it comes out, and Final fantasy XIV Endwalker was so popular and the demand was so HIGH that Square Enix is was forced to stop selling the (digital only) game for a while, Resident evil village is Doing Fantastic Numbers, Gran Turismo Gameplay reveal tomorrow which is expected to do great (most successful racing game franchise only behind Nintendo's Mario Cart), Tales of Arise winning Best RPG awards everywhere, I can go on and on and on.

@Septim Dynasty

Unlike MUJI, Fast retailing doesn't use XinJiang's cotton. Fast retailing always keeps screening for Human rights abuses in the supply chain. It's just that Tadashi Yanai isn't vocal on the Xinjiang only to not disrupt operations in Key markets.

Deserved. Hamaguchi is of the best rising Japanese directors working in Japanese cinema right now. His other film he released this year " Wheel of fantasy and fortune " is equally brilliant if not, better. I hope JT posters show some love to both the movies.

Hmm, Judging by the number of downvotes, looks like This site is visited by quite a lot of racist mfers.

Posted in: Profit recovery from pandemic to keep Tokyo stocks on uptrend in 2022 See in context

But not a word about passing any of it on to the workers? Who actually do the work.

Nikkei Stock Average to rise to as high as 34,000, a level not seen since March 1990 and an 18 percent rise from the closing level on Dec 30, the final trading day of 2021 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The downside is expected to hold firm around 26,000.

An 18% pay rise for workers would be a fair as the share holders get 18% for going nothing.

Cool, Maybe invest in the market and earn that 18% yourself.

@Tom Doley

Muji, not uniqlo. Uniqlo repeatedly did extensive inspections for human rights multiple times and did divert from suppliers violating human rights multiple times. It's just that Uniqlo isn't openly vocal about it to not cause disruptions in it's major markets outside Japan. Muji on the other hand isn't doing this.

team of the organization/company I work for. won't give any estimates other than the ones given by the govt but it's proceedings at a much slower pace than expected and also the pandemic has made it very difficult for us to work with our partners abroad. Well, about corium, lol, we gonna keep redrawing road maps over and over and over atleast for the next 5 years.

My team spent almost 6 years now in Fukushima. There are nuclear scientists on the site from all universities over the world. All of them agree that even if Japanese government releases the entire water in a month, there won't be any affect in the surroundings. Still, thanks to those scumbags at green peace east asia (CCP mouth piece), Chinese and South Korean govts and their massive success in spreading fear and misinformation, the Japanese govt will spend another 40 years to just dilute it even more and then release it drop by drop( which is definitely gonna cost a lot of money) and still you'll got problems.

Int relations only with China and South Korea who release unfiltered Tritium water as much as the water stored in Fukushima every month. Japan already spent 400 billion dollars on Fukushima(at the expense of recovery of various industries from the 311) and we can't afford further spending. Further spending on this can be funded only by cutting spending on social welfare programs, Infra, Defense spending, etc and this is what Both china and south Korea want. we keep spending 100's of billions of fukushima while they keep spending on industries etc and eat Japan's lunch. The biggest failure of Japanese govt till date is giving in to international pressure in issues related to Fukushima. Had the money gone into Japanese companies like Hitachi, Panasonic, Mitsubishi electric, Mitsubishi chemical etc who suffered 10's of billions of dollars of losses due to the disaster to cover them up instead of forcing them into restructuring for the next entire decade, sell assets to Chinese and Korean companies and lose their lead in many industries.

There are some countries that have the tech to filter out the tritium. Why don't they use it?

Tech might be there but NOBODY uses it simply because there's no need to.

Posted in: Hitachi unit admits to cheating on brake, suspension inspections See in context

Last week the jgov admitted to inflating GDP figures through double counting of construction figures, and now this. As I've always said, Japan is no different to China.

What happened was that the small construction companies imputed their pending construction orders as well along with the completed ones which resulted in double counting. Those companies are too small to affect the final GDP figures.
