All networks gave top play to reports that an advisory body to the Japan Sumo Association agreed on Monday on the need for “extremely harsh punishment” for grand champion Harumafuji over his assault of a junior wrestler.

Main front-page items in national papers included a GOJ policy on assisting with China’s “One Belt, One Road” trade promotion initiative, proposed income tax reforms for FY2018, and the GOJ’s acknowledgement at the Diet yesterday of the existence of an audio tape of conversations held in May last year between Finance Ministry bureaucrats and Moritomo Gakuen officials apparently on the subject of a discount for the state property later sold to the school operator.
