    We’ve been building up our finances over the past 2-3 years,” Managing Director Yutaka Tabata said. “Our financial structure is strong.”

    Right.....said with a straight face, but probably knowing that SOMETHING was going to happen and you would need all the cash you can get your hands on to survive.

    Seems to me that this company KNEW something was screwy.

    Germany gives ex-PM Kan award for efforts to phase out nuclear power in Japan

    How misleading here.....it's a shame that something worthwhile is reduced to this.

    Tell the damn truth, even if it is a private organization, tell it like it is!

    Foreigners on pitiful wages and being used to do jobs most Japanese won't do! Who wants to stand in a shop at 3am for 1000 yen an hour?

    That is for the local stores and not the corporate offices as discussed in the article. BTW down here it's about 800 yen per hour not 1,000. People would be jumping at that here.

    There is usually a large amount of dry ice packed into coffins here, bricks of it. They are not relying solely on the air conditioning, most likely.

    I wouldnt assume that here as dry ice, in the amounts needed to keep a corpse from decaying too fast needs to be replaced rather often, at least once a day, and that costs money.

    Wikipedia has been criticized for its sometimes sketchy quality, including articles with dubious elements owing to the nature of its platform that allows anyone to alter posts online.

    Which is why academia typically does not allow articles or information from Wiki to be used as reference material. Sadly too many people believe what they read on wiki is "fact". Wiki is a good source of information, but it needs to be taken with reservations when read, particularly articles relating to contentious content

    is extremely accurate and detailed and has a narrative that goes with it.”

    how a series of missteps by a disparate Japanese group of ministry officials, corporate executives and diplomats badly undermined their bid.

    Which pretty much says it all. The Japanese probably thought that their way of doing business would carry them over the top but failed to realize that the rest of the world does not play the same way.

    “We thought up to the end that we could have won,” another source in Japan said.

    This is probably what you told your bosses. However from within the article there are just too many, and probably more as well, details and obvious things you should have done to keep yourselves competitive.

    You lost, and now is the time to go back and learn from the mistakes, but it will probably take a generation or two for the lessons to be learned here to sink in.

    Not just permanent but PT as well for Lawsons and Fami-Ma down here. There are plenty of young people from Nepal, Vietnam, Taiwan and China working there while going to school as well.

    Be nice to see the one's who want to stay, be given permanent positions. However that is up to the franchise owner's themselves and not the corporate HQ types.

    According to the labor ministry, about 910,000 foreign nationals were employed in Japan as of last October, up around 15% from the year prior. The figure includes those in casual or part-time work.

    First question, what the heck is "casual work?" Oh and without actually looking it up, I do believe that this number is quite a bit higher as it does not include, if I recall correctly, all the people living here on permanent residency visa's who are of course foreigners and many if not most, working as well.

    There are something like 1.5 million people here, or around 1.5% of the population that are foreigners and are not included in the number quoted here.

    LoL. The negative 6, thumbs down, confirms Japanese don't hug anyone.

    Thumbs down for coming to this conclusion and caring whether people up you or down you.

    Neither matter.....get a life!

    I wonder how many took him up on the offer? It's strange that one of the best methods for making a human being feel welcome and needed is mainly reserved for young children and babies here.

    Many a little more hugging going around would loosen up some of the "underwear is too tight cutting off the oxygen flow to the brain" syndrome that affects so many people.

    I do not have the time, but I think it would be a wonderful idea to overload the servers of the publisher and authors of this garbage with these comments, to let them know just how asinine and counter-productive this is to their image.

    Typical Japanese attitude of do as I say and not as I do!

    Someone needs to send a message to the idiots that came up with this idea. Probably some teeth-sucking, nose-picking, sweat-smelly, farting, noodle sucking oyaji!

    This is beyond ridiculous!

    It's a pathetic policy that brings in workers and kicks them out the door after a few years.

    've been to Mie many times and while it's a lovely prefecture with tons of ancient Japanese cultural heritage, choosing it as the site of a global security expo was a huge joke

    It's not a global security summit, it's the G-7 held yearly.

    I bet he will be "glowing" with pride after the site is completed and he is all warm and fuzzy inside knowing he helped take one for "Team Japan".

    The Mie prefectural government’s efforts to work together with residents to offer “omotenashi” Japanese-style hospitality in some respects appears to be falling on deaf ears.

    As I have often stated here, and this reinforces it as well, Everyone in Japan likes to think that "omoteinashi" is the heart of Japan, so long as it doesn't inconvenience them personally.

    Japanese are like anyone else anywhere in the world, when they are inconvenienced it bugs them, no matter the reasons, and that is just human nature.

    Abe should be giving gift certificates and cash to all residents, bribe them! It works with elections, it should work on omoteinashi!

    Yes, first the country was taken away through dubious means...

    Sounds exactly like something here too! The similarities are amazing. Where is the outrage at the injustice? Where are the calls for independence?
