    So a few people standing SILENTLY on a sidewalk, not obstructing flow of traffic is prohibited but vehicles with loud speakers during the day and loud motorcycles riding recklessly and holding up traffic is permitted. Once again I am confused.

    This may be the first in Japan but not the first. American military from Operation Tomodachi have file law suits. Something you won't see in Japanese news.

    Thunderbird, your stretching! As long as you are not doing it for financial gain, no they won't sue you. Common knowledge.

    I guess 'No Overtime Wednesdays' and ' Premium Fridays' are working out so good. Perhaps they need to add 'Mama Mondays' and 'Tosan Tuesdays' and 'Thirsty Thursdays'. Or just make Saturdays and Sundays official National Holidays.

    What Trevorpeace said. I live in Tokyo and have been asking every Japanese worker I know, what time they went home on Friday. EVERY reply was between the hours of 8 and 11pm. The time of this plan is so bad. February and March are the busiest months of the year for companies. Fiscal year end, transfers, moving home, school years ending, new school years preps, just to name a few. And don't forget about the well know 'after 72 days we all forget' saying in Japan. Now had he started it in May or June, then perhaps it would have had more meaning. Also, what ever happened to "No overtime Wednesdays"?

    Things are getting way out of hand with people claiming sexual harassment and/or misjudging someone on a emoji, act of kindness and/or even a sympathetic/greeting hug. Are we no longer allowed to be nice to people??? I use hearts to my students often. No one sees it as a sexual gesture. Really! What is this world coming to???

    They need to be spending the money to test for radiation and publicize the results within their own country where the risk of radiation exposure is of a higher threat.

    That's 30.2 billion yen less the government has to build its own military and work towards reducing US forces. Hope you all enjoy spending my hard earned taxes. I have to listen to Japanese commercial fights late into the night and early in the morning. Not to mention the late night bozozokus.

    Be careful of some hospitals. Can't speak for this listing but some places on the net are listed as English friendly but not. Example; went to Kanto Ryosai Hospital after checking for English friendly places. Website-English, Signs in the hospital to direct you-English, Payment machines-English. Looking good so far no? NO! None of the staff, including the doctor i was assigned couldn't speak English. Anyway, the hospital was useless and left with paying for the visit but no real treatment. They said my problem (back) is do to aging and can't be fixed. They were wrong. My trainer has been making great improvements!. This is only one of many cases I have experienced first hand. To end, don't trust hospitals in Japan. Apologies for the negative post but foreigners should be warned.

    6 years on and still investigating damage. But they want the world to believe all is safe and people can return to their homes. Even CNN has a nice ad explaining that all is well. Sad, so sad.

    Just a user; I gotta agree with you. Living in Japan for 35+ years and seeing all the problems in the states with immigration, I gotta agree with Japan's policies here. Imagine this now safe and peaceful Japan allowing 5,000 to 10,000 immigrates in the country per year. For those of you who do not live/have not lived in Japan, please refrain from posting to this article.

    Wonder how many have had a flu shoot. I haven't had one since '86 and have been sick since. Could also be due to this crazy hot cold hot cold weather we've been having.

    Really? How can she dictate something like that when Japan has a 99% ban on Refugees. Even non-refugees have difficulties immigrating to Japan! However, Japan does have room for 40 million tourist and room for thousand "Home-stay" for take care of its farms. This helps Japan and only Japan. Go to Japan, work, spend money then leave is the policy here.

    "The draft also calls for designating 200 areas to attract tourists by making use of various cultural assets, particularly in the Tohoku area in northeastern Japan hit by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami." Now why am I not surprised! No need to elaborate.
