"That was there at ten o'clock in the morning at at seven o'clock hotdogs chicken but okay works too. Well what's great about the seven elevens especially and this is also true of the lawson family marks is they have a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables and you will not see the same food there all day long in fact they will only have the freshest there and if it doesn't sell that day they'll discount today to try to sell it because they don't want to have anything that would basically potentially make you sick or not be fresh or be up to the standards of taste and also the way the unwrap. These foods is away so it's easy for you to eat so in japan it's considered route to eat and walk at the same time. You're meant to stand in one place whether it's against a wall a corner in your car. When you eat fewer an pension needs something going into these stores you can get a healthy meal that is good for you. That is actually nutritious. Especially when you're traveling you're on the go where you're so busy sightseeing that you forget to eat something along the way or have something with you on your journey. Well if you're in a city in japan in you turn around three sixty. You will probably see a seven. There are quite a few of them. And sometimes you'll see to absolutely and the last thing that i want to touch on is also you were ability to hike in japan so i mentioned one aaron beginning but another area that i went to then and this was towards the end of hiking seasons. There is actually dedicated hiking season in japan and it runs from april. All the way through november. Now depending on where you're located in japan so let's see in okinawa hiking. Actually ever closes there. But where i'm at the most southern part of the main island japan. It closes the last week in november. And they do that just because of the weather how cold against and it's known as the gen coup chico bali and it's one of the three biggest valleys in the western choukou mountains just national park and what's unique about as you have mount jacuzzi which i've actually hiked to. It's the highest mountain in yamaguchi prefecture. And they mentioned five falls but it's actually seven it's just because it straddles this prefecture and the hiroshima prefecture. So the wonderful thing is they do have a terse information center there they do have some things in english but again not everyone. There will speak english so one mistake that i made i would tell your listeners is that we went on a hike that people told us would only take an hour to do tops and two and a half hours walking in. We realized we didn't know where we're going so we had to walk back so be mindful of where you're going. The maps are not labeled always an english. You don't have cell phone reception but it's a beautiful area in the fall. There's areas to hike camp. You'll see people will get out different plates of food and believe it or not. If you're like gosh. I can't think about packing all those things. One place you can buy. Cheap things to take me through. Hiking is at the one hundred yen store which are dollar stores..

"Whose name was here. Boomy each who's actually from the haji city. He's from this prefecture. He loved it so much and enjoy the delicate so much that he had them. Bring it back and so you will see extraordinary dishes. They almost like a piece of art. Almost too pretty to eat made up of blowfish dishes. No when you talk about bluefish you're talking about the fubu which has to be made by a chef. Who knows what he's doing because otherwise you can die. That's the one we're talking about right. Yes we might wear. Yes yes four. Surely you do have quite a few people. Here are very familiar with it. So and i will tell you. Japan is probably one of the most cleanest countries in the world. Now if you wanna go to the place where you are like maybe still little worried and you're not sure where then on the most western side of the prefecture is noted the shimon eski area. And there's a very large fish. Market there are called the high dory market. They pride themselves on selling the most blowfish more anywhere than japan and again. This is where you'll see the bluefish decorated almost like sashimi. it looks like a chrysanthemum. Or any sort of major flower. It's i didn't realize that's what i was looking. Okay yes all right absolutely interesting and then another food. that's also very popular in the area is called the kawahara so boo noodle. And it's brown the towel on power which is near the common straights which is chrome and other popular tourist destination because again. It's separating the island of hunt you and keishu so what's fascinating about this noodle is that is a sober dish that they make on top of a roof tile so it's an actual roof tile. That has the meat and vegetables on it and where this idea came from. Is that when soldiers on the battlefield had to eat. That is how they cook their food. They would use a roof tile that they use to cook over the fire to cook their food and so it's something that they carried on and actually is a special dipping sauce that you used to eat the dish. So that's a little bit of history along with what you're eating there. There's also a big swordfish that you'll find out. I'm sorry sword. Tips squid skews me which is kinda knows the queen of the squid here and even though i have not had it quite a bit myself. There's actually a lot of free range chicken that are grown down here so one of the things that they're going to find in this prefecture that a lot of people know it's called the zen jokue which the common nickname that people know by is called the chicken shack and the chicken shack is something that you almost feel like it's disney without the rides is just all food. That's probably the best way to describe it in a nutshell and they are famous for their large size..

"Going up a hill but it's very open. So where those i felt. You were very contained this. You're going to be very open. And even though you're channeled into this tunnel you're going to still feel very open to your surroundings. You're going to feel the wind. Come off the see. You're going to see vegetation if you're coster phobic by no wings while you feel claustrophobic walking through these i have heard nothing but wonderful things. It's on my list to do. I have not physically been there yet but it is on my list. As soon as i'm allowed to travel to that region and just a lot of people tell me they feel at peace when they go there so that is something i would say is unique about a lot of these temples and shrines in these sacred areas. That even if you are not into or buddhists. Let's say you're christian and only one percent of the japanese population is christian. There is something that you can admire and respect and enjoy from going to such a religious and sacred place. Even if you don't feel like you know anything about the shinto religion or the history of this ryan you can still go there and feel like you're just becoming part of the beautiful backdrop is actually located near the city so again it's not too far from haji. That is the area that is close to. It's about a seventeen minute drive from that area in the yamaguchi prefecture. And you could get there also by taxi as well. The last major side of the area is an again. I cannot wait to do this myself. I'm waiting for them to open back up again. Is the ike yoshito cave. These are the biggest limestone caves and all of japan. They are the largest as well as the longest and so they actually plateau and they are located in the mine city in the makuuchi prefecture. So just to give your audience an idea. It's about eight point seven nine kilometers of passage so depending how ventures you feel going through these cases which go up..

"It's very well contained so no free show but that something definitely for your visitors to enjoy. I strongly strongly recommended the other thing. That's also in. This area is called the joe digi temple. It's on your way to to haji. This is a peaceful temple famed for its garden. And if your listeners can definitely appreciate is the plethora of gardens that they will find in this region because you don't a lot of the major cities are here. You have tons and tons of gardening as well as bamboo force and backed by more bamboo forced here than you will in most other parts of japan also quite a bit of rock formation. That you'll see that's here that's just been designed by some of the locals that have been the area so the peaceful temple that famous garden. The zoo to tate was actually designed by the highly talented painter himself as well as the garden and then the locals have obviously maintained over the last hundred years ago when he created it and that brings us next to haji so haji is known for its pottery. It's known for its old ruled. But now we're going to go back to what you mentioned about the summer so there's actually summary quarter that's located in haji and you can easily again reach this area by train but the reason i say it's much easier to drive is. It's a little bit more convenient and it's easier for you to access some of the sites right now in japan they have a go or they're encouraging people to travel but as you know with co sometimes things that say they're open are not open or their hours have changed and they're not always up to date online car can make it a little bit more accessible if you need to adjust your plans accordingly. But one thing you'll find it awesome. This area is a castle. However this castle can be very different than the eib kuna castle when you walk up to it. You're like wait. Where's the castle. Because all you're going to see is the foundation of it the powder stone walls are all that remains of that stronghold because after that family had served the maury family that had served there for two and a half centuries the top layer of the castle was destroyed and so now it goes into a expensive greenspace of a park that is now enjoyed for picnic or leisurely strolls in the area. One thing that i will mention about haji and this is true of a lot of regions that you'll find in japan. Is that upon arriving. If you feel you're a bit lost or not all. The signs are english even though they are having more and more of the region be translated into english korean chinese and other languages of the world is that you'll find a fantastic visitor center and so they actually have a great sixteen minute video. It's actually available upstairs.

"Some of the sites that i would say are the must to explore. There is one is going to be the ryoki temple and pagoda. So the goethe the where. I can best describe it. Is i think a very tall linear scripture. And you'll see what looks like roofs that separate the different levels of stick out from the building so unique about this pagoda is that it's a five storey tower so if you have a five story pagoda a five storey building but instead of it being all one line imagined that there's also five roofs that jet out from the building per layer and this one. What makes it very unique and again this is also found in park and the name of the park is called the kuzan park which is probably i would say the gem of the yamaguchi city. Which again we're in the central prefecture area. This was actually constructed in fourteen. Forty two just so work again. Going along with what you're saying with the edo period and it's considered one of the top three actually to see in all japan and what's unique about. This one is that they say that you really could see it. Any season to appreciate speedy. Of course if you have the cherry blossoms will blooming or have the autumn leaves around it. You're definitely going to get that wonderful pitcher that you want to put on your instagram or your facebook or your shutter fi book that you're making your pictures to ascend to your family back home. Also this is a good reminder that if we're trying to describe something in you're wondering how to picture it. Every episode of amateur traveler has pictures. If you're using the appropriate player some of the podcast players can show you the pictures in some can not. So you'll have to check depending on what platform you're playing on. But every every episode of the amateur traveler has pictures and links to the things that we're talking about as well as links in the show notes absolutely and the other thing. That's nice about this park beginning away from the city as you how this is going to be much more of a nature the'll to have a place is also the rico g temple and so this is actually nearby and what makes it interesting is it was actually constructed after the pagoda and it was dismantled by a ruling family the area but it was built again around the sixteen hundreds and so. That's what really makes this park. Unique is just some of the surrounding areas. And there's also a small tea house that actually has served a large role in this tumultuous period between the ito and the meggido restoration period and the name of the house is cold. Shin t the reason why it was. So revolutionary is that they would say that people would need and pretend to practice tea ceremony but in reality they were gathering to plan the plot of how they're going to overthrow the current lord and so building is actually free to visit especially on the first floor. Most don't build about this area but it really played a role as far as military strategy as far as how we went from one person role in the area to another person. Now after you've gone through this whole area obviously you're doing everything by foot..

"You'll see both of these all across japan. But what you're gonna find in. I'll go on a little details that get to the region that each region kind of has their away preparing it. Just like in the states if you have mexican food and california versus mexican food in texas they both have their own flavor their own way of preparing. Its will in towards that. You mentioned key which is a dish that comes a fairly recent dish that comes from osaka. Is it different. If i have down here than if i have it on osaka and that's the one that you mentioned that it's the pancake with egg and cabbage and other stuff and the other stuff is worth. It's interesting varies even more between osaka. And it would kuni. Because harris shema as an entire district which is the pre fracturing right next to kuni literally just fifteen minutes away. you're already in that prefecture. That has its own way of doing it. And if you ask the locals that they will be very adamant about the difference in the change my palate is not as well trained to understand the difference between the three. But i'm sure it's time that i will be able to the other thing you could do like you spent your first day explain all of eib kuni and now you wanna venture out a little bit outside but still stay within this part of the prefecture and you could either do this by dr where he could do this by train and it's going to university now. I will tell you this mostly when you travel in japan you can get a japanese rail card and almost looks like a credit card or smartcard that you see in dc or san francisco however for this train to go to unite. It does not accepted that something that you will not find a lot of turgai books. They won't tell you that you almost have to find out the hard way. Japan rail train looks like japan relative but for some reason the card that can use everywhere else does not work there. So i have any coca card. Which is the same as the paso card is a car which works ever in japan but for some reason you have these little pockets in japan. Were it's unacceptable and this is one of them. So i did the drive because i learned but again i want to share that with your listeners. Because you won't find that any guides so it's about a thirty minute drive and what's unique about this city. It's got a white wall historic district and this is an area where these houses actually date back to the edo period and you have the kumari family that lives here and this is where they actually produce soy sauce. You see these little white lens look like fish. If you love to be a little crafty stores we can walk in especially if you have children and this is just a good thing that they can make an there. Are these traditional gold. Fish lands are known as the sign of welcoming people. And it's just a little hidden gem. It's nothing that would take more than probably an hour to go. Walk around the city and see this. Were if you really want to go and see how they make soy sauce or how they make these lands in this old historic area very very close by and definitely off the beaten path. You mentioned the edo period and no two weeks ago when we did that show. I realized that the end we had talked about it and we hadn't defined it but we're talking about what is really in japanese history sort of late middle age but for us much more recent than that in the sense that they're middle aged goes a little further into our recent history so it's sort of sixteen hundreds through to just after the us. Civil war of you ever saw the movie with tom cruise..

"Prospering of the area. So you'll find lots of fountain areas of families. People will have picnics. Depending the time year they will also have different festivals throughout the year. So that's why it's depending on when you come. It really depends on the festival's that they offer now in the fall you can definitely appreciate the maple park. It's called moment donnie. Which if you look at some of the japanese translation means falling leaves and they'll actually do different types of cookies during that time of year. That are in celebration of the fall train of the leaf. They also have in this area. What's called the with kuni castle and the original castle was destroyed and broken down but they've restored over the last forty years and you can actually access the castle and this is all kind of in the same area so once you park. This is all accessible by foot. The castle you could actually do a twenty minute hike to go up it or if you're filling. He wanted to take it easy. You can also take rope way up to it and have a spectacular view of the whole city of iwo kuni as well as the surrounding areas in a couple of things to clarify. One is the bridge you were talking about. Is you mentioned how garrett it wasn't how long it is. It's also a medieval woodbridge so it's a pedestrian pedestrian bench. So you can cross it small fee to do it but it is unesco protected and it's actually the architecture they used to build it it is survive typhoons. It is survived a lot of mother. Nature's storms that have come through and so it's really just the japanese. It's it's just an a testament to their strain to end their longevity. Especially in this reason so there's a lot of pride that goes with a bridge that makes it one of the top sites definitely to see in this area in the other thing you mentioned the castle and i'm not sure that people who haven't been to japan or haven't seen the castles of japan might have a different european view. A castle for instance typically in japan is a predominantly wooden structure Very vertical not. Very big not big compared to a european castle was typically home for one futile family. And so this looks to be about the same Stone base them than wooden four or five story building. Correct correct and the thing that i would also tell them is be prepared when you go inside..

"Silly tourists thing where you look at your ticket and you realize you flew into one and you're flying out of the other so it's it's a great argument for why we get to airports early. I make my flight. But i took the shuttle and i will say that. The japanese airports are the easiest and most customer friendly service getting. Read it for. It is like jfk lax. But i've gotten in and out in twenty minutes and is the quietest if anything for the loud people that americans were the loud ones in the airport. So i will definitely say it in a country that is so friendly and customer service. You feel very very much taking care of now another airport that we didn't mention that you could fly into is asaka. There's quite a few flights that i do know from the states applying to soccer. And if you do find asaka then. I would recommend that you actually take what's called a constant train that you can take the constant actually town directly into kuni or the other shin stations located prefecture. Are your listeners familiar with the shinkansen. I think many are but we're talking about the high speed train that you've all seen pictures of by this point which is joy to take in a little more expensive than the local trains but Very easy process and very enjoyable. Yes it's like. You sit on the window which i recommend getting a window seat and you can feel like the world is passing you by. It's like having an exit row but for every seats can flip around. They can go back. I would recommend getting a reserve seed. You have plenty of space for your luggage. It's much more comfortable than even the fast paced strange. I found in europe and they run very much on time so do not be late because the train will leave without shoes so that is one thing i will mention there so now let's say now you've arrived to the gucci prefecture. And you're trying to figure out what is really the best way to get around the prefecture..

"Talks about castles and water polls samurai and sushi gates and temples as we go to the yamaguchi prefecture in japan. Welcome to the mature traveler. I'm your host chris christensen. Let's talk about yamaguchi. I'd like to welcome the show. Corinne devon who has come to us to talk to about the yamaguchi prefecture in japan crin. Welcome to the shell alter for having me crazy. I am delighted to be here when we should say i. What is your connection with the area of japan. We're talking about so. I am actually a united states naval officer and this is actually my second tour in japan. My first tour brought me to the kanazawa prefecture at the naval station. Yokosuka and this time. I of come down to kuni which is located in the yamaguchi picture with the marine corps station. It will kuni and so these are my views. Not the views of the department offense. But i simply want to share with your listeners. A part of japan. That i feel most people don't know much about that has a lot of beauty and hidden gems that i cannot wait to share with your audience on the show. We don't know that the marine corps even has views on what you should see as a tourist. I think people are willing to take your word for that and can you put us on a map. We that we've gone down to so we've given some indication that you're in more southern japan than we were two weeks ago for instance when we talked about the to hukou premature at the top of the main island so if you look at the country japan. The country itself is probably the size of about california with a third of the population of the united states. Just to give you an idea. And so it. Though it's very densely populated the country of japan is very well organized. And if you look at the map it's made four major islands. Hokkaido honshu kyushu and honshu is the largest of the four islands. And if you look on a map and go to the very southern most western most of main island japan boring here shema in shimagami and they're also east of fukuoka issue that is where you'll find the prefecture and what's unique about it. Being at the southern end most western most part of main island. Japan is actually surrounded by the japan. See the co inland sea and the bookie and it's a very long coastline. That just shows you've got emerald green ocean you've got lots of sandy beaches very incredible views of cliffs and there is also a collection they've even smaller islands surrounded so for your people who love.

He achieved a high level of trust within the church and was put in charge of some of their funds. Unfortunately his ease of life and financial success didn't last long just three years later. Fukunaga's business was the victim of a malicious scam. As a result the company folded in nineteen seventy nine leaving fukunaga with five hundred million yen worth of debt. The equivalent of over four million dollars. Today being con- had an immeasurable effect on fukunaga. He'd worked so hard and been so disciplined his whole life and now it was all gone at thirty four years old. He was shattered and afraid for his future to make matters worse. Japanese newspapers at the time claimed that the small church. He was part of expelled him as a direct result of his failure. Fukunaga looked at the ashes of his pristine life and initially felt despair. But over the coming weeks this gave way to fury. Fukunaga became determined to make his money back. some have suggested. He vowed to take revenge on the society that scammed him and on the religious organization that shunned him. Vanessa's going to take over the psychology here and throughout the episode. please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or a psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show thanks. Greg fukunaga had endured a crushing trauma. And since he'd only enjoyed success for a short three years he might have felt especially bitter in two thousand nineteen joshua conrad jackson virginia k choi and michelle j. gelfand researchers from the university of north carolina and the university of maryland published. An article called revenge. A multilevel review and synthesis in it. They studied people who had mostly been in positions of low socio economic power. Who later experienced a so-called jolt of prosperity or power. The researchers found that people who perceive themselves as having low socioeconomic status man act what's called displaced revenge. This means that instead of retaliating against someone who harmed them in fukui nagas case a scammer they go after a broader less specific group. If fukunaga couldn't take revenge on the specific person who destroyed his life he could take displaced revenge on society in general. It's not difficult to see. How fukunaga could have been broken by his loss and fuelled by need for revenge. He reeled from the psychological damage wrought by losing his livelihood. Without the success of his business he had no idea how he was going to pay his debt or support his mother and his family but before he could enact any schemes for revenge he fell victim to a spiral of depression. He was a man without a business. Tation a religion or a future plan. He didn't even know who teruyoshi fukunaga was anymore. His situation seemed so hopeless that he reportedly attempted to take his own life in one thousand nine hundred eighty he ultimately survived the attempt but his alleged brush with death became a real awakening killed off. His original persona in august seemed to channel his emotions into a various plan to take advantage of others. In the same ways he'd been wronged naga began experiencing mystical and spiritual visions. He didn't know exactly where they came from. Or how he was chosen. His visions made clear to him that he was the final savior of the world. He also received a message that he was the reincarnation of both jesus christ and the buddha since his life as the businessman teruyoshi fukunaga had come to a close. He started over completely with a new name. He changed his first name to hogan with translates to the origin of dharma. He knew the name would help people understand that he was their new messiah. In buddhism dharma refers to the teachings of the buddha. He began preaching his message that he hogen fukunaga. The messiah had returned claiming divine authority over the next few years. He amassed hundreds of followers. He called his group. Ho no hana sanpogyo which has been translated a number of ways one of which means teaching of the flower while a lot of their practices invoked buddhism such as chanting sutras fukunaga claim the association with the christian god in equal measure. He also relied heavily. On japanese notions of ancestor worship.

"In more national news, let's turn to travel and tourism for a minute the forgotten center instead of lost and found is just one of the English mistranslations discovered on websites that may puzzle foreign visitors to Japan and the government wants operators to fix such problems as quickly as possible with the country reading itself for an influx of more. Foreign tourists ahead of next year's Olympics. The Japan tourism agency conducted a survey this February and March looking through a total of eighty five websites by train and bus operators as well as transportation signs in major towns and cities peculiar English words were found on some websites where direct machine translations were used. And some other problems were also found how about dwarf used for children or release place for ticket machines. The agency also found that translations of some sentences were confusing or even. Comprehensible a good example. I quote, what happens to the children fair from what age, which I guess is a sign talking about children's ticket prices. I dunno unnatural direct translations and mistranslations from Japanese frequently crop up in the news and social media. The operator of a subway system in Osaka. Recently gained global attention when it's English website carried a number of odd translations for train lines and stations as a result of automatic. Translation. The name of the sockeye Suji line was translated as sockeye muscle line. The Japanese word Suji in the name means street, but the Chinese character also has the meaning of muscle travelers were also amused to be taken to stations called powerhouse town DIKO coup cujo and world house ten the China among others Japan today. Readers were amused to say the least inspector gadget remarks. This still drives me nuts. Companies are willing to spend thousands if not millions of yen on large signs and upgrading websites at cetera. But not willing to spend significantly less than that on a native language speaker to make some basic changes. I agreed farmboys favored example is a train station sign that reads for restrooms go back toward your behind. He adds Google translate is getting better though. So enjoy these things while they last and suck would've sukey says this is just the tip of the iceberg. These weird translations can be found pretty easily on any website document or signed that belongs to any big Japanese corporation or Japanese government agency. Well, this is all true. And it does cause me to giggle from time to time the Ingrisch dot com website that is English E N G R. I S H has become internationally infamous for users posting their photos of mangled English as they see. See them in their travels across Asia. But for a country as determined to be perfect as Japan is having native English speakers, at least proof reading major signs. Well, it's just a no-brainer. Does the editor may coming out there though? What do you think send us a comment or some of your favorite Ingrisch photos to podcast at two pan today dot com. Much like everywhere else in the world teachers here in Japan, often make the news for all of the wrong reasons such as bullying and verbally abusing their students. This week a local board of education in Yamaguchi prefecture revealed that a male teacher in his forties, grabbed an electric hair clipper and gave one of his first year male students of buzz cut causing the boy to take a leave of absence from school shortly after the incident happened last autumn at Kudamatsu technical high school when approached by the principal in December the teacher claimed he did it because the boy's hair was too long. But it seemed the problem ran much deeper as he had often hurled verbal abuse at his home room class calling the morons idiots and stupid all of which earned him stern reprimand from the principal when classes resumed in January the teachers personality had apparently changed for the better. So the principal didn't report is behavior to the board of education, but all forty. Pupils of that class, and their parents hadn't forgotten that he had forcibly cut someone's hair. They submitted a petition to the school board in February calling for his disciplinary dismissal. The board of education said in March the teacher has since apologized to students, and parents, but he wasn't fired this month. He was shifted from being a homeroom teacher to being just an assistant teacher Japan. Today. Readers think the teacher got off way too easily? You bought who says of the education boards response that it's quote condescending how about the board taking responsibility and everyone including the teacher, principal and all involved taking the clippers and giving themselves buzz cut, and quote, Chris piss says, Shirley, this is an assault on a child. Not to mention barbers are being denied business and from birdie Worcester, it doesn't matter what. This guy's qualifications are his behavior is unacceptable. He is not a teacher. Yes. It's true. Early maddening and quite shameful behavior that we see happening at schools across Japan, quite often during the year, forcing girls to who don't have black hair to die their hair black, but it also happens. Elsewhere, I'm reminded of the dreadlocked student wrestler who was forced to cut his dreadlocks off in New Jersey. Still this one seems a little over the top. I'm not sure about these teachers, but maybe they're just going mad with power over their charges. I don't know perhaps his teacher should've just asked. If students wanted buzz cuts set up a little chair in the student cafeteria, charged few bucks and give it all to charity. I don't that must have been horrific for the kid though. What do you think what's the most crazy thing that a teacher has done to a student in your school? Let us know in comments on the story or send us an Email to podcast at Japan day dot com. And

"Well, this is just getting repetitive now. Former Nissan boss Carlos gone has been arrested yet again for the fourth time by Tokyo. Prosecutors. As we reported last week, a whole new era in Japan begins on may first people are excited, and it finally has a name Ray wa will tell you what it means coming up. A new Japanese labour law comes into force capping company work hours in a bid to curb the notorious cut Oshii or death from overwork the Japan. Tourism agency conducted a survey of transit and tourist websites here and found some rather odd machine. Translations the English for tourists is not looking good at this point a teacher in Yamaguchi prefecture forcibly shaved the head of a male student because his hair was too long now students and parents want him cut all this plus Japan today, readers, comments and commentary. So stick around. Hi, welcome to Japan this week a quick recap of stories we've been following on the Japan today website for April fifth two thousand nineteen. I'm Jeff Richards. Thanks for joining us. And let's get right to some of our top headlines. Well, Carlos guns legal troubles just keep piling up. In our first story out of the crime section. The sixty five year old former Nissan Motors, chairman was re-arrested Thursday. The fourth time he has been arrested in Japan. The new arrest warrant was served for an allegation of aggravated breach of trust gone who had been released on March. Sixth was taken back to the Tokyo detention center in vehicle from the Tokyo district public prosecutor's office that had arrived at his apartment in Tokyo after six AM in a statement sent by US based spokesman Goan said Maya rest this morning is outrageous and arbitrary it is part of another attempt by some individuals at Nissan to silence me by misleading. The prosecutors. I am innocent of the groundless charges and accusations against me. Now, the arrest came just a day after Goan made a surprise announcement on Twitter that he would hold his first press conference since being released on April eleventh to tell the truth about what's happ. Opening the latest charges that gone caused Nissan. A loss of five million dollars by having Nissan subsidiary in the United Arab Emirates pay an Omani distributor, a total of fifteen million dollars between December two thousand fifteen and July two thousand eighteen part of that it's alleged by prosecutors was transferred to a savings account over which gone had effect of possession. Some of the funds were allegedly transferred via the firm good-faith investments run by senior official of the distributor to accompany represented by guns wife. This money may have been spent to purchase a luxury yacht for the use of guns, family and other items. According to sources, let's hear from Japan today. Readers iron sword calls. It a disgusting. Farce the so-called. Prosecutors just want to stop gone telling the truth to the world that the press conference. Well, that's pretty obvious Kirin stomach says, I don't know whether he's innocent or guilty of the charges at hand, but the lack of transparency in Japan's legal system make it. Very difficult to find the truth in the whole matter. If this all goes to trial doubt, it will be a fair one regardless of his actual guilt or innocence, and for Mr. Q, I get the hostility toward the Japanese criminal Justice system, but given its heavy handed methods. It still doesn't mean that gone is innocent of any of these crimes. He's being charged with funneling a massive amount of money from the company to his family. Sounds like something that needs to be investigated to me. Well, I tend to agree with both of those comments. We do not know whether Carlos gone is innocent or guilty that should come out in a court of law. And it does seem that they're trying to silence him and keep him from speaking on the other hand, it is pretty heavy handed treatment for a person who salvaged the Nissan Motor company from near bankruptcy. What do you think? Visit the story or reach out to us at podcast at two pan today dot com, and let us know. Well in national news, a story that has been across every television screen and newspaper front page. In the nation for the last week as we mentioned on the last episode of this podcast new era will begin in Japan on may first when crown prince not a heat dole a sense throne after his father, Emperor Akihito abdicates on April thirtieth in just a few short weeks, the long awaited new era name Ray wa was finally announced on April first and immediately had Japanese and non Japanese alike wondering what the two Chinese characters meant to clarify the name choice. The government issued an official translation on Thursday saying that it means quote, beautiful harmony, and quote, prime minister, Shinzo Ave said the name was taken from an ancient Japanese book of poetry called the menu. He said the name suggests that culture is born and nurtured as the people's hearts are beautifully drawn together. Well, that sounds a bit flowery. That's because it is a foreign ministry officials said Ray wall also refers to the beauty of. Plum blossoms after a tough winter. However, some experts said the first Chinese character they today is most widely thought to mean order or command with them a Thawra -tarian tone the second. Character means peace or harmony Cuza to a Hongbo university of Tokyo historian said the name sounds as if we are ordered to achieve peace. Well, the new era's characters or the name at least also mean big money for businesses just minutes after the name was announced companies began cashing in on it with products products ranging from cupcakes keychains, stickers smartphone covers t shirts pins, tins, hockey cups, and Coca Cola bottles to a burger costing one hundred thousand yen. That's about a thousand US dollars in honor of the next emperor. Several restaurants have also pledged to offer free meals to people whose first or last names used the same characters. As Ray wa Japan today. Readers way in Bill, friars suggests it might have been nice, if the Japanese people had been allowed to vote on the name themselves rather than this obscure name being selected selfishly by few elites true Bill that might have been nice. But with all the secrecy, pomp and circumstance around this Royal lineage never gonna happen zone to surf comments in the end Ray will be defined by the events that occur within the era, regardless of the meaning of the term that is absolutely correct. No matter what the name the arrow is given before it starts. It will be the events that occurred during the emperor's reign that come to be associated with Raila. And as for the merchandising Dudu says now those Coca Cola bottles are selling for a pretty penny on Yahoo enough to fly round trip to Tokyo from Osaka with a hotel. Stay man. I wish I knew ahead of time. Well, don't we all dude, don't we all? Well, turning to politics aside from a new era name being announced a new labor reform law came into force on April. First it sets a legal cap on work hours in a bid to change. Japan's Torius overwork culture blamed for causing sickness and even death the new law. Limits overtime to forty five hours a month and three hundred sixty hours a year in principle. The monthly cap can be extended in busy periods for up to six months year companies that violate the rules face a fine of three hundred thousand yen. That's about two thousand six hundred dollars. US the monthly cap can be extended in busy periods though for up to six months year companies that then violate the rules will face a fine of three hundred thousand yen. That's about two thousand six hundred dollars as labor shortage is more severe in certain sectors than in others construction workers taxi and truck drivers as well as doctors will be exempted from the monthly cap for five years such exemptions have already. Raised concerns that smaller companies will be forced to bear the brunt of big companies, cutting their own employees overtime work while critics say it's uncertain whether imposition of the legal cap will drastically change the deeply rooted overwork culture here just looking at fiscal two thousand seventeen Japan had one hundred ninety deaths from overwork called karoshi in Japanese, including suicides, according to government, data Japan. Today. Readers are obviously quite skeptical oil toy observes, they can go on passing emasculated laws and guidelines. All they like the reality is that it's just a Saab to let people think they're serious about addressing the situation. Knowing full well that apart from very brave few the majority will fall into line and not rock the boat. Dangle Bong says companies here make you do undocumented overtime of which there is no record and save the guy Jin adds his own. To yen's worth. Let's just. Slate. This showy you're still going to work the same amount of hours if not more, but we're only going to pay you for forty five hours overtime a month. Max, well, all three of those comments seem to sum up the situation and junior employee's companies most certainly will put in whatever unpaid overtime is required. Remember, Japan, ease, not a very big take this job in shove, it culture. How much overtime do you work month? And how much of it is paid. And are you in Japan or you overseas?

She was trying to drag huggy on out of the vehicle when it was hit from behind by a truck issue bus. She's lawyer argued that while he had engaged in tailgating, his car was stopped when the incident occurred, and thus there is no causal link between his actions and the couple's death issue. She had previously been separately indicted for to reckless driving cases in which he tried to force drivers out of their cars in Yamaguchi prefecture. He was also indicted in the same prefecture for damaging another vehicle by kicking it. His verdict will be handed down on December fourteenth. Here's what Japan today. Readers had to say, do the hustle thinks many times I've seen drivers using their cars as weapons I've also had idiots jump out of their cars and wanting to fight me because I used them for being reckless, but holes, However, I have learned if there is some abusive twit wanting to get in front of you or abuse.

Well, you might recall we spoke about Halloween in Japan in our November second podcast this year. Things did get a bit out of hand. Crazy might be a better word in Tokyo's Shibuya district where thousands of revellers gathered each night between October twenty seventh and October thirty first four men in their twenties were arrested this week for overturning a small truck on the night of October twenty eighth now no one was injured. But it was one of a series of escalating pranks the four ranging in age from twenty to twenty seven told police, they didn't know each other. And just got carried away after drinking a bit too much police believe fifteen people including French Belgian nationals were involved in the tipping of the truck where they bounce it back and forth in eventually overturn it. The four men were identified using footage from about two hundred fifty security cameras and images captured by people nearby concern is growing among Chilean municipal officials and businesses over the growing care. Haas of Halloween among the estimated three hundred thousand visitors nineteen people were arrested between the night of October twenty seventh and the morning of November I for alleged groping and theft, according to Chevy police authorities are discussing what to do for future events, including New Year's Eve, which also draws big crowds to the Chevy scramble crossing. Let's hope a few knuckleheads don't spoil these events for everyone and Japan today. Readers chimed in concerns itizens suggests get tough on destructive behavior. So that everyone else can have a good time. I agree while knickknack knocker says so thorns are currently wetting the bed about Halloween Chevy, the Halloween meet up, his obviously, very popular. So do it somewhere. Suitable with some entertainment on hand. Isn't that what Halloween is entertainment? But yes, I guess he's meaning do it outside of the super-popular area and somewhere maybe a little more accommodating for such a large amount of revellers. What do you think? Visit.

That's what occurred at a restaurant in Kita city in Kita prefecture, a group of about ten men had been drinking and instead of having fun. They started arguing among themselves and eventually some of them came to blows damaging the restaurant's interior and fixtures in the process. It turns out the brawlers were all police officers assigned to the same police box or Koban as they're called in Japanese. It's unclear what the fight was about. But it ended up with one of the officer suffering broken ribs, the restaurant called police who have now initiated an internal affairs investigation as the investigation is still ongoing. No disciplinary action has been decided yet. But if a group of police officers can't go out to dinner without committing crimes, including drunken disorderly conduct assault and battery and property damage than maybe they should just be sent to Shibuya for the next Halloween event.

We're following on the Japan today website for the weekend in August twenty. Fourth, two thousand eighteen. I'm Jeff Richards. Thanks for joining us. Once again, we're coming to from the workspace called blink community here in Tokyo right next to Ripon g hills, a highly connected meeting event and co working space that also has private offices. You can rent by the day month or year. You can check them out at blink community dot com. And now let's jump right into this week stories. Well, our first story entailed, some sidelined athletes, Japanese basketball players did well at the Asian Games this week in Jakarta, Indonesia, but members of the men's basketball team got caught up in some uncoached practice sessions and were sent home in disgrace. Four players left the athletes village, following a game to eat at a restaurant where they met a Japanese speaking local who told them about a bar where they could meet women before amateur players who by the way, we're still wearing their team uniforms, spent a couple of hours at the bar before checking into a hotel with four women of a professional nature. If you know what I mean the next morning, a newspaper published photographs of the players out on the town. The Japan National Olympic Committee decided to withdraw their accreditation and send them home, and they had to pay for their own airfares depend today readers had mixed views on this incident. The food says when representing Japan overseas. A few tips don't break local laws like prostitution. If you choose to break local laws, don't wear your team uniform. Don't be seen while wearing your team uniform, taking prostitutes into a hotel and paying them talk about stupid. Stranger land is a bit more sympathetic. I understand why they sent these guys home. It was one of the rules they were under, but it's a pretty ridiculous rule. Assuming they were in a place in which the women were there voluntarily. There's victim here. And for that matter, I believe it's been shown that athletes perform better if they have sex before playing. Well, well, put strange land, but I'm not exactly sure how old these guys are, and it certainly is not how you should represent your country at an international sporting event. Okay. If you've been following the news from Japan, especially with all the recent disasters and things that have happened due to the heat wave and the flooding you might have heard about how do ova the seventy eight year old man who made headlines last week after he found a two year old boy missing for three days on Suo OSHA island in Yamaguchi prefecture. Well, this week he was back helping others in need as he does this time in Khuda could ocean prefecture, which was devastated by the floods last month, the media have dubbed Oba who is from Oita prefecture a Super Bowl in tier because he often goes to disaster-hit areas just to help the victims there. This time he showed up at a volunteer centre in Khuda with a car full of food, water and other relief goods Ogata was assigned to help clear away. Debris caused by the mudslides from residences, despite his age and the scorching heat about a toiled on with his. Fellow volunteers right in the middle of it. He said he will continue his volunteer work until the end of August, and he sleeps each night in his car so is not the burden. Anyone sounds like a few people. I know back in my high school and college days, although they weren't volunteering. Japan today, readers were full of admirations for the man. Harry Gatos says this guy deserves a medal or some form of fischel recognition for what he's done. While Bruin fan calls ova a true hero. I wouldn't mind seeing him in charge one of the ministries in Japan second that somebody who can get things done and get read in their roll up his sleeves and take care of business. Yeah, I think they deserve to be in government. Well, it's about time, but Japan has its first female fighter pilot, and the officer is vowing to blazed trail in the sky for other women. First Lieutenant mecer Matsushima twenty six of the air self-defense force finished her training Wednesday to fly f. fifteens and was officially named a fighter pilot on Friday. Matsushima said that ever since she saw the nine hundred eighty six, Tom Cruise movie top gun when she was in primary school, she had always admired fighter jet pilots. She told reporters, I wished to continue to work hard to fulfil my duty, not just for myself, but also for women who will follow this path in the future. Some sobering statistics currently women account for mere six point, four percent of Japan's two hundred twenty eight thousand troops according to the defense ministry much seem certainly got some encouragement from our Japan today readers Trevor piece. Writes nice to see. I hope Matsushima achievement goes really deep into the minds of young and not so young women in Japan. She could be that tip of the iceberg. Japan's women of all ages need to recognize themselves. Here's hoping fingers crossed and from glor- Phindile way to go fly into the sky and lead others with your courage. My sentiments exactly. Where'd you go goose? I feel the need the need for speed. All right. We've come to that point our program yet again, what point talking about? Let me hear you out there. Yes, you're right. Our weirdo story of the week, a twenty four year old American men was arrested after urinated on another passenger during a transpacific flight. Yes. You heard me correctly. A man urinated on somebody on an airplane. Apparently will not. Apparently it did happen. The incident occurred aboard an an a flight from Chicago to Narita airport. The suspect Denny key show Chandra Perec an engineer by profession. I think this is probably important to the story urinated on a fifty year old Japanese man who has see two rows behind him in business class. He was restrained by crew and handed over to police after the plane arrived in Tokyo police said Perec had consumed at least four glasses of champagne and one Cup of sake before the incident and told them he couldn't remember what he did the men. And this is also important to the story did not know each other. Well, what did Japan today readers think poppy Giulio asks, all I am wondering is how and why did he unzip right in front of him, take it out and start peeing. Diddy surprise attack him was a Japanese guy sleeping. So many questions. Imagine that in the middle of the aisle on a crowded airplane. Okay. And from burning Bush, can't wait to see the three d animated infographics on Japanese TV depicting this either. Can I one question I have is how did he p two rows behind him standing on the back of the seat and how did he miss the poor person directly behind him? Is this like excellent marksmanship? I think we need to follow up with more details.
