All TV networks except NTV aired reports on the areas affected by powerful Typhoon Krosa, which has brought strong winds, torrential rains, and high waves, and caused major disruptions to public transportation. NTV aired a video provided by a viewer showing a JR train driver dozing off while operating a train in Chiba last month.


Major front-page stories in national dailies included a proposed merger between the nation’s two major drugstore operators, the Education Ministry’s plan to install by FY2022 ultra-high-speed internet networks in all elementary, middle, and high schools across the country, and a GOJ policy of helping citizens in their mid-30s and 40s secure stable employment as many of them had difficulty finding jobs after the burst of economic bubble in the early 2000s.
