Well I think Japan has one of the highest per capita patent applications in the world (far, far higher than the US), so that would have contributed very heavily to this innovation index.

All this effort to get women into the workplace, but in the end it's the women in Japan who need to step up and aggressively join the full-time workforce. I just can't see that happening at all..

So, is there any evidence left regarding the comfort women? This is worse than if there was a trove of hard evidence as now both sides won't accept it.

Well, the construction industry has always been one of the dodgiest and corrupt industries of each country, I'm not surprised they're cartelising for the Olympic construction tenders

I'm gonna go with the cynics on this one and say that her antics are all scripted to actually help Abe rather than raise legitimate questions over his policies. With his wife saying all this, it definitely softens his image and boosts his women agenda. Also, the way she words her rhetorical questions makes them fall directly into the lap of Abe's policy goals.
Too suspicious for me and would be so easy to do on their side.

Honestly I think they should get rid of the women only carriages. It's discriminatory and probably contributes to women being treated as far inferior to men in Japan as people probably think that they can't even survive on a train without special carriages. Bigger penalties for sexual assault on trains would curb groping I think but women here need to speak up about it obviously.

In Sydney there's a very wide range, with the cheap end usually quite terrible while the top places are definitely on par with the top places here in Tokyo.
