Most networks gave top play to reports that Japan has been hit by a cold snap, with temperatures in parts of Hokkaido dropping to minus 31 degrees Celsius. Fuji TV led with a report that a former sumo wrestler is claiming that a senior colleague punched him in the face and broke his jaw four years ago, but the stable master chose not to disclose the incident.


Top stories in national dailies included an estimate by the Health Ministry that more than 1 million people will probably need home healthcare services in 2025 (Asahi); a report by the Japanese Federation of Bar Associations that the number of lawyers in Japan has exceeded 40,000 for the first time (Mainichi); GOJ plans to promote deregulation to foster promising startups (Yomiuri); and a Health Ministry plan to expand childcare services for sick children to support working parents (Nikkei).
