Flames, Sake and Shrines: A Japanese village's Fire Festival
"Japan is renowned for being an incredibly safety conscious country with locals diligently following the abundance of rules and regulations designed to keep them protected and moving officially at the same time. It's home to some of the most incredible. And I might say dangerous festivals. One in the mountain village of nozzle on Sen. involves generous servings of Japanese Sakai, of course, fire and a fragile flammable. Wooden structure sounds like a very dangerous combination doesn't it his on north Asia? Correspondent Jake stone. Take a stroll through any part of Tokyo's busy Choubey award and within a few hundred meters you'll hit one of the dozens of construction sites. There's a fielding food here. Head of the rugby World Cup and twenty twenty Olympic and Paralympic Games. These sites are surrounded by temporary clean, white walls and guards at every entrance. Whenever a truck arrives will depart at least two guards leap into action blocking the road and footpath stopping traffic. So the truck can safely drive. No matter of seconds back on your wide. This is the culture of safety that exists here. These gods of mandated by strict local police rules and officials haven't been willing to change them despite a live shortage, which is what makes my nixed experience. So difficult to feather them in January. I attended the NewsHour on fire festival will dosage Matt Surrey. Villages carrying flaming torches charge towards a wooden shrine and attempt to heat it and set it on fire. But at the base of the towns twenty five year olds who have to bear the brunt of the TAC.

As the locals who'd gathered to celebrate showed how symbolic and of utmost important such an event was he says, it was blown away. And what do you go back for more? You bet it seems the reason such an event can happen despite the apparent and inherent danger of combining fire and sucker is tradition. The fact this has been going on for more than a century means it's likely to continue. As a rite of passage for many more seemingly incredibly they haven't been any serious injuries arising from the festival the faces of the twenty five year olds by the end of the not having borne the brunt of the attacks were covered in ash.

Australia and Japan hoping for deeper strategic ties
"The relationship between Australia and Japan is growing meets Rausing instability in the Asia Pacific region security and trade tensions between the US and China a leaving ustralia and Japan somewhat caught in the middle ustralia and Japan are hoping to solidify deeper strategic ties with negotiations inching Ford over a new defense agreements, vast defense experts warning that should not be seen as a precursor to a full alliance, nor should the relationship heading in that direction north Asia. Correspondent Jake's termer reports from Tokyo, this is one of the most challenging times in the ustralia Japan relationships since World War Two the US is relationship with China is increasingly turbulent and Washington's economic rivalry with Japan to is leading to uncertainty in Tokyo, it's an opportunity for a stra in Japan to move closer together showing by the recent visit of prime minister Shinzo Ave to Darwin with his counterparts. Scott morrison. It was an historic trip has the two leaders paid their respects at the Dow on Senator Jeff it was the first visit of Japanese Prime minister to Darwin since the country bombed the ustralian city in World War Two both countries are putting their wartime rivalries behind them working on a new defense agreement that will make it easier for these straddling defense force and Japanese Self Defense Force to work together. Professor John Blaxland is the head of the Estrella national university's strategic and defence studies center. There is underway. The negotiation for the reciprocal excess agreement which is akin to a status of forces agreement to to expedite and facilitate rapid and same Lewis interoperability of Japanese and destroy in defense force elements in Japan or in astrology or wherever we might be. Based in response to a crisis like this NAMI the Indian Ocean. So NAMI, the typhoons of the Philippines. The Fukushima disaster in Japan where Australian C seventeens flew in equipment and struggled to get it off board because of administrative procedures that had not been agreed upon beforehand. So there are things that can be done negotiations over the agreements have been going on for years, and the ABC has loaned that discussions are now focusing on the legal status of strategy and troops in Japan. It's a sensitive issue for Tarquinio because of several recent issues with US troops stationed in the country. There are around fifty thousand American troops in Japan at several bases. And there are tensions stemming from a series of aircraft accidents and serious crimes in two thousand sixteen the murder of a woman was linked to an ex marine employed at one of the bases which led to a temporary ban on alcohol as well as midnight curfew, but the big difference between the US and destroyer in Japan is that they won't be a permanent base. And while. In Tokyo, talk about a quasi alliance. Professor John Blaxland says don't expect this reciprocal access agreement to turn into a full alliance. Are we talking about a security guarantee, whereby Australia promises to come to Japan's aid not that never gonna happen? And the reasons for that because of the Cinco jar you on who you ask all the doctoral, the duck duck Asieme issues, they are bilateral disputes between Japan and Korea, and Japan and China, they're not ones Australia has an interest in becoming involved in and nor does his trial. You have an interest in giving Japan a sense that it will give support should Japan feel like being more aggressive towards Korea or China other either of those disputes so strategy is never gonna go. The I don't believe. There is clearly utility in astrology end Japan collaborating, all the more effectively in our neighborhood on a whole range of issues. And if that generates a sense of unease among somebody who might want to challenge, Japan or ustralia, then that might be a useful byproduct form, a US marine, Colonel grant Newsome says closer ties between Austria, and Japan are a good thing some ways, it's even better to have Japan and Australia operating on their own rather than this Roach reliance on the United States. Plus, the United States is hard. Pressed doesn't have enough resources to cover the entire world. There's also a political psychological aspect to see the Japanese and the Australians out in about amid the global uncertainty. It's not a bad idea to Cape. Good friends close.

"north asia" Discussed on WAFS Biz 1190
"Well, our chief north Asia. Correspondent Stephen Engle is in Tokyo for us this morning. He's been following all the drama, Steve. What's the latest? Yeah. There's so many angles to this story because there's the French side. There's the Japanese side there's the third partner there's the prosecutors. And then there's what's next for the alliance. Let's try to tackle them. All of course, overnight. We heard from the French not only government. But also, of course, Renault Renault at a board meeting to discuss this. They reaffirmed the Carlos going as chairman and CEO, however, since he is basically still under detention under investigation unable to carry out his duties, they have named an interim deputy CEO that is the chief operating officer Terry Viloria who will be taking over day to day operations as an interim CEO a while we find out what's happening on this side of the world in Japan. Because tomorrow there's going to be a Nissan board meeting. We've already gotten indications from currency growth, a psycho that he will push for the board to oust car. Carlos going as chairman of Nissan as well as Greg Kelly of fellow director on the Nissan board who is a strong and deep confidante of Carlos gone. We have a number of other little stories that contribution to the bigger story right now. There was a story earlier from Nippon Television MTV saying that Nissan is through this action to perhaps oust Carlos gone under the guise, of course of those financial improprieties, but they are also reportedly buying to revise the alliance. And that is a big question that we are trying to answer. What is the future of the alliance between Renault Nissan and Mitsubishi going forward, the French government that Renault said, they support it? We heard as well from Mitsubishi CEO earlier this morning saying base supported everyone is saying they support it. But then we have this other report Saint perhaps that they do want Nissan wants a revision because deep down. Within these they feel it's an inequitable partnership with Renault.
