Japan admits very few refugees and asylum seekers, placing a significant burden of proof on those who seek refuge and often detaining migrants for lengthy periods while their cases are processed
Because they have seen what happens to countries that have an "open door" policy.
And I fail to see why Japan has to shoulder the burden of looking after refugees and asylum seekers. Japan is a mountainous island with already cramped living conditions and high prices. Not to mention frequent earthquakes and other natural disasters. Authorities and health care organizations already have their hands full looking after their own people. More refugees will only strain these resources. Why can't these people go to countries that have large living spaces and plenty of resources such as Canada?

I wonder what prompted him to check her bag
According to police, Hasegawa’s boyfriend contacted them on Sunday and said he was "having trouble" with her.
So the police were already on the lookout for her and looking out for him.

Increasing pressure, very good for the US war dealers conglomerate, Japan is going to pour more money into US weapons.
And both china and russia are going to benefit too...by being the suppliers to the North.

There is a high chance in fact that SK had intelligence about the launch of this missile, and withheld it from Japan. If so, its unforgivable
SK "Intelligence" isn't very reliable in the first place. If they can't even monitor the movements of their own neighbor correctly, then it's useless.
Japan needs to rely on it's own intelligence gathering and not on SK's.

*Abe was right to ban high tech exports to S.Korea. These exports will only be sent to the North and used for the military against Japan.***BS! **
Abe and his crooks never so far have presented any evidence whatsoever supporting the fact that South Korea has exported sensitive tech to North Korea or shared sensitive military information with them. And Japan did not ban tech exports per say but the export of material processed in Japan used to build tech products.
There is a high chance in fact that SK had intelligence about the launch of this missile, and withheld it from Japan. If so, its unforgivable.
Is there any evidence to back up this claim? I believe none. So please retrain yourself for coming up with ridiculous conspiracy theories.
What is the point in providing evidence to a militant and nationalistic nation that burns flags and starts riots everytime their politicians direct the people's attention away from their politician's own failings and towards Japan?
S.Korea has a history of refuting evidence and making about-turns on treaties that have long been settled with Japan. There's no point in providing evidence to someone who doesn't have the capability to accept it.

There is nothing left to pick up. These missiles hit water at Mach 7~10. Debris then sink to the bottom of the sea, which is deep
Samit, gathering intelligence and counter-intelligence doesn't just mean picking up physical pieces. There is such a thing as SIGINT. And since you weren't there when it hit the water, you don't know what remained. Military Forensics has advanced quite a bit and you CAN pick up quite a lot from debris...even the tiniest ones.

Just goes to show that both the North & the South Koreans are only pretending to be enemies. One fires missiles at Japan, the other flies fighters over Japanese islands....at almost the same time.

IMO that is not the biggest threat, its the businesses and real estate procured in Japan by using front men to buy what they need. Already China owns lands and water rights, most people dont' know about this. Another threat besides the military more dangerous are the numerous Chinese spies living in Japan and some with ties to elected officials but hide it very well. Why there isn't a story about this is surprising
You hit the nail on the head! Well said!
Even their students studying in Japan ( and using computers in the university research labs to hack & steal important data) are a threat. Japan should wake up!

The problem is that the world's superpowers are fighting over things that we can actually live without (like 5G) rather than things we actually need (like Ocean power). The amount of resource that they are pouring into useless stuff like AI machines that constantly monitor you ...well, those resources can be put into renewal energy.
But as usual, money talks.

But the same can be really said about US tech companies, who are also known to spy for the US government. And the US government doesn't have a good track record around the globe either. The CCP's abuses are mostly done in their own country, comparatively
And yet, despite all that, people would rather trust the Americans than the china-nese. Even Chinese don't trust china-nese. Just ask Taiwanese & Hong Kong Chinese.
And the US government doesn't have a good track record around the globe either.
Yes, people are so ungrateful for the number of American lives that were lost during WW2 while liberating the rest of the world from the Axis tyranny.
The CCP's abuses are mostly done in their own country, comparatively..
The problem is that the CCP invades other people's countries and claims they belong to them. So technically, the abuses are not "in their own country".

Part of the problem lies in the fact that power lines in Japan are largely above ground
I always thought the reason for this is because of the fears of Soil liquefaction (ie, water gets squeezed out) if there is an earthquake. Ruptured underground electric cables and ground water/burst pipes is a dangerous combination . You can see youtube videos of how scary liquefaction is, if you look for videos of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake.
Also, it's easier to find faulty cables and repair them if they are above ground isn't it?

The US doesn't really care if Hua - china communist dictatorship's spying machine - wei, does very well. The Americans just don't want prc's stuff on their networks, especially their military networks. That was the main intention of Trump's ban.
It wasn't really about business; it was about national security. Since prc has a history of stealing other people's IP.
I say good luck to those countries who have been forced and bullied into buying Huawei's stuff; you are now being controlled and your ideas/thoughts/businesses are being stolen.

The photo in the article is very appropriate because SK Hynix supplies parts to Huawei...the communist dictator government's electronic spy machine.
In other words, the S. Koreans take from the Japanese and give it to the chinese...who then give it to the North Koreans who use it to fire missiles at Japan or the chinese use it themselves to spy on the US, UK, Japanese and their own people.
