I am in the renting business and in Japan I would prefer to rent to foreigners!
Statistically, foreigners are less of a criminal risk than Japanese people.
They complain less and are much more likely not to move within a short time.

Singapore is safer than Japan.Walk around the streets and be assured of your personal safety.
Singapore makes for one of the most relaxing vacations one can have due to anti social behavior not being tolerated!
These two will certainly be reflecting on this fact long after the stinging has stopped....

Japan's taxi drivers professional?
By what comparison?
I once had a drunk driver almost slam the cab into a guard rail on a 5 minute ride in Kobe.And the number of surly drivers I have encountered make for bad memories.

It is not possible to 'ramp up' production of whisky, not if quality is to be kept.
As a rule of thumb, the longer the maturation process is, the better the taste.
The large manufacturers here are basically running out of stock of matured whisky with a maturation date longer than 10-12 years, and as a consequence releasing
much younger whiskies dressed up in fancy packaging.
The article also fails to mention a spate of planned price increases across the board this April gouging the drinkers here in Japan.

Assuming that any law is ratified I cannot see it being used against Japanese to protect foreigners -

2015 has been the year of record snowfall in many countries yet the ice is being eaten away under the Antartic and we are meant to stop it?
The earth has warmed and cooled many times before as can be noted in ancient texts
To think that we can do anything about it but learn how to swim better is pure hubris.....
