I would disagree.
There aren't any laws in Japan that deal with race issues.
The football clubs are possibly responding to FIFA fines but not to any fines based on Japan's legal statutes.
And this is why foreigners have been excluded and prevented from entering certain businesses based on race
There is much more legal redress to be found in Europe concerning racial issues.

It's no surprise that there is a middleman (Orix) in the mix-Japan is notorious for this.
However,solar power generation is not only the province of big players.
I personally know 3 people to have signed contracts with Kansai Electric to sell power on 25 year contracts.
9-10% a year return is the norm for a solar farm in Japan.....

Why is that?
Oh right,Bigfoot has never been shown to be an actual recordable phenomena whereas the release of over a quadrillion bequerels at Fukushima has (according to NHK news)
The correlation between the incidents of cancer and radiation has been proven many times.
Cancer, in many cases results in death
Maybe you don't look at the results of the studies Mike?

So what is causing the thyroid cancer in children?
What is causing insect mutations?
What is causing mass sea life die offs in the Pacific?
What is causing countries around the world to ban Japanese goods?
Any researchers dare to make a link?

The reason for the ban is to prevent crime.
Isn't it obvious that face covering on a large scale is increasing the potential for crime against the state?
France is right to enact laws against this as the very resins Islamic adherents cover their faces is against the values to be found in French culture.After all drinking a can of beer in Saudi Arabia would get me arrested and likely flogged.
How many posters here would agree with that?
However the UK has seen fit not to introduce the ban which leads to surreal gatherings of hundreds of black garbed women around Marble Arch every weekend in the summer-a strange sight but peaceful.....for now....

It's strange that last week my acquaintances on hearing this information in the Japanese media phoned Citibank and was told that no information could be given on the matter or that they didn't know.
As that person has over thirty million yen with Citibank it shows that there is a real lack of customer service and decorum absent from Citibank's customer policy - imagine waking up one money and finding your account was taken over by a bank you never signed up with?
Needless to say my friend is closing her account with them this week....

No food I have ever bought in any country has shown pesticide information nor levels of radioactivity or even that it has passed any checks whatsoever!
So what is one to do?
1.Growing your own food inside or on the balcony.
Self sufficiency is not possible but a surprisingly large amount of
vegetables can be grown in the summer like this
2.Make friends with a local farmer and buy produce at a fraction of the supermarket price.Knowing where the veg is from also gives peace of mind.
3.Learn the kanji of the prefectures that you wish to avoid.
If labelled as only Japan then ask the shop staff.
Usually, there will be an answer from someone knowledgeable.
4.Keeping up with the news shows that contamination spreads!
I avoid west coast wine produced after 2011 for this reason.
Taking a short time to check out the things we put into our body may well pay off in the long run....

From green tea to cars Japan has seen radioactive goods returned to its shores.
Why is there an emphasis on the export of Fukushima agricultural products when there is still
a massive discharge of radiation from the unlocated corium at the ruined nuclear power station every single day,with no end in sight!
The government lost a credibility in my mind when I saw Fukushima produce appear in my supermarket at half price for the first time in the spring of 2011.
Japanese people won't eat it so maybe some ignorant foreigner will.....
