What does Bach have in common with Xi Jinping, Putin, and Trump? All have (or at least wanted to) extend their top post beyond original governing rules.

All you’d need would be Xi in the same picture to complete the “Trinity of Evil”. Unfortunate that they’re all nearby neighbors. I’d be in support of a small scale targeted nuke gps coordinated to the camera when it clicks.

The only blatant experience I had of this fairly early in the pandemic was when I walked up to a crossing and was waiting, an older guy close by looked at me and moved away closer to a (presumably) Japanese person.
Ojii-chan would’ve done this even prepandemic. Haven’t you ever ridden on a train yet?

Her problem is that she didn’t expect it, in the country where women are sex objects and not respected. I guess that the Koreans haven’t gotten around to stealing this misogynistic attitude and behavior from Japanese as of yet.

Referring to a third year university student as still being a “girl”, shows the bias of the article’s emphasis.
As for “a Chinese educator… in Japan on a cultural exchange program”, one would think that the educational system would pave learned from all of the prior spying incidents.

Will it still be considered spying or espionage when they ultimately steal the info, data, etc. and send it back to the CCP?

JT can you state the significance of these suspect's nationality being in the headline (or in the story at all)?
Being that this was the second largest seizure ever, whilst the largest was due to the criminal activity of Chinese nationals as well, perhaps it’s showing a relevant trend.

Chinese tourists made only for roughly 0.4% of Japan's GDP.
So on a cost benefit analysis - to ensure quality of life for locals, emissions issues etc - it seems clear that tourism from abroad should be limited to 'sustainable' levels.
Having experienced pre-pandemic Kyoto, then even the amount from China which generated that 0.4% is too large.

How stupid is Europe? or rather how subservient?
These sanctions are designed to damage the industries of Europe not Russia.
Who gains? Undemocratic oil exporting kingdoms, China, India and of course the US master.
Even Russia gains from the increased oil and gas prices.

@ awa no Gaijin and stephen chin
The truth is that Taiwan was a independent free republic nation before Japan colonized it for 50 years and ended its sovereignty.
Why should Taiwan trouble Japan? Does Japan want to colonize Formosa again?
You guys live so in the past. That all happened over 70 years ago.
I often meet my Taiwanese colleagues and I having been raised in the West, asked them about Taiwan's colonization openly over dinner one night. There were some negative aspects as with all forms of colonization but they said that living standards, education, population, infrastructure and standard of living improved greatly. They ended the night saying "The past is the past!!"
Once the LDP stops going annually to Yasukuni to honour the 14 convicted (by the World court no less) Class-A war criminals, then Japan itself could be considered as having can stopped living in the past.

Whilst also inviting over the evil Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his oil, training the Myanmar Junta, trying to keep the gas project going with lovely Russia, all of the J corporations still doing business in the latter two countries, and so on and so on. Knowing to not fear losing political power, as the general public will always keep them voting for them. No shame, no morals?

yet the j-gov just started allowing free entry of all Sinovac-vaxed foreigners, just to boost the economy and their own popularity.

Concerning in that Japan will be opening its borders to this Sinovac-immunized country, which will probably lead to an 8th wave.
