    Japan’s defense minister said the threat posed by North Korea has grown to an “unprecedented, critical and imminent level,” reflecting a rising sense of urgency over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program. Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told counterparts from South Korea and the U.S. at a gathering of defense ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations here that Japan supports the American position that “all options are on the table”-

    You know your country has done something really weird when it ends up on the morning news in Japan. Sometimes strange Japanese trends confuse the rest of the world, but right now the tables have turned and it’s an American trend that is confusing Japan. Recently McDonald’s announced that they would be releasing a limited supply of Schezuan dipping sauce. The campaign was born from an episode of the show Rick and Morty where the mad scientist Rick goes on a tangent about how his life’s purpose is to obtain “that Mulan Schezuan teriyaki dipping sauce.” Rick’s goal to find...

    Japan's lunar orbiter discovers 50km cave beneath surface Underground chamber can potentially provide shelter for astronauts KENTARO IWAMOTO, Nikkei staff writer TOKYO -- Data from a lunar orbiter has confirmed a cave beneath the surface of the moon that could be used as an exploration base, providing shelter for astronauts and instruments, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA, said Wednesday. The lunar orbiter Kaguya, also known as Selene, discovered the tube-shaped, 50km cave by using its radar sounder system that examines underground structures. The cave was found at an area with a set of volcanic domes known as the...

    As we all know modern technologies are moving forward at rapid-fire pace. Every day we use smartphones and laptops, get service from robots, AI is among us. Japan is no exception. On the contrary, this country probably is the most technologically advanced country. And the most fecally-challenged robot in the world was made in Japan. Maywa Denki Corporation of the Novmichi Tosa company presented its new creation DORODOROBO, a robot that walks around spewing diarrhea out the top of its head. No, you didn't read it wrong.

    Sailors aboard the cruiser Shiloh during the 26-month command of Capt. Adam M. Aycock often worried about the CO’s use of one of the Navy’s most arcane punishments: confinement for three days in the brig while being fed only bread and water. Over time, Aycock’s proclivity for using bread and water to punish junior sailors became well-known on the Yokosuka, Japan, waterfront, where the Shiloh is based, according to sailor comments in three of the ship’s command climate surveys. “I do not wear my ballcap at the (Navy Exchange store),” one sailor wrote. “Even the taxi drivers on base know...

    This week marks two significant dates for North Korea – the anniversaries of its first nuclear test and the foundation of the ruling Worker’s Party of Korea. Officials have warned that North Korea could use the special dates – in particular, the Oct. 10 anniversary of the Worker’s Party which coincides with Columbus Day in the U.S. – to provoke the U.S. or launch a new missile. “There is a clarity of purpose in what (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un is doing. I don’t think he’s done,“ Yong Suk Lee, the deputy assistant director of the CIA’s Korea Mission...

    A US military assault on North Korea could prompt a last gasp retaliatory nuclear attack by Pyongyang on Seoul and Japan killing as many as 3.8 million people, according to a new analysis of the destructive potential of Kim Jong-un arsenal. Donald Trump has repeatedly warned that all options remain on the table – including the use of force – in dealing with the North Korean threat. However, analysts say the US is hamstrung by Pyongyang’s growing weapons stockpile and the fact that major population centres lie well within its range. A detailed analysis by 38 North, a programme at...

    Overwork had caused the death of a 31-year-old NHK female reporter in 2013, according to the labor standards inspectors, the public broadcaster said Wednesday, providing further evidence of the extreme working conditions many Japanese employees endure. Miwa Sado, who belonged to the broadcaster’s center in Tokyo and died of congestive heart failure in July 2013, worked 159 hours of overtime with only two days off in the one-month period prior to her death, a local labor standards office concluded in May 2014. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration has been seeking to improve working conditions in the country following the suicide...

    On the morning of December 8, 1941, tens of thousands of American and British civilians living in China woke up to learn that the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor had been bombed by Japanese forces. Their nations were suddenly at war with Imperial Japan. The Japanese had invaded China years earlier, and the troops stationed there wasted no time turning these Westerners—who were now part of the enemy—into prisoners of war. “They appeared the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked,” Mary Previte told the Trumpet. “We were now the prisoners of the great emperor of Japan, they said.”...

    It’s easy to think that South Korea doesn’t stand a chance of ever surpassing Japan. After all, the Korean economy is now barely over 1/4th its size. That’s despite strong growth over the past few decades. Japan was Asia’s most important regional power for centuries – at least until China caught up in 2010. However, Korea is a slightly poorer country and has just 50 million people compared to 120 million in Japan. You’d be correct in saying Korea probably won’t catch up to its larger, more populous neighbor in the short to mid-term. But there are several reasons why...

In a speech delivered in Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture, north of Tokyo, Aso, who also serves as finance minister, said, "Can police handle them? Will the Self-Defense Forces be dispatched and shoot them down? We'd better think about it seriously." His remarks come at a time when tensions remain high as the United...
