NHK, Fuji TV, and TV Asahi gave top play to the first day of the U.S.-Japan summit that ended at about 6 a.m. Japan time, highlighting that President Trump told Abe that he will raise the abduction issue when he meets with the North Korean leader. NTV and TBS led with updates on Vice Finance Minister Fukuda’s alleged sexual harassment of female journalists.


Major front-page stories in national papers included the Chinese government’s announcement yesterday on eliminating all regulations on foreign capital investment in local automakers by 2022, the start of the U.S.-Japan summit at Mar-a-Lago, massive corporate tax evasion involving SoftBank Group Corp., and mounting calls both within the ruling and the opposition blocs for Vice Finance Minister Fukuda to step down over his alleged sexual harassment of female journalists.
