Most broadcasters led with reports on a blizzard in Hokkaido. Fuji TV’s top item was Emperor Naruhito’s Daijosai thanksgiving ceremony, the last in a series of rituals following the Emperor’s coronation in May. 


Top stories in national dailies included GOJ data showing that Japan’s GDP expanded at an annualized real rate of 0.2% in the July-September period, marking a slower pace than the previous quarter due to weak consumer spending ahead of the consumption tax hike in October (Yomiuri); a GOJ plan to issue for the first time in three years debt-covering government bonds in a supplementary budget (Mainichi); a plan for a merger between Yahoo and Line aimed at creating a mega-platform with more than 100 million users (Nikkei); the Daijosai ceremony (Sankei); and moves by convenience store chain operators to cease 24-hour service (Asahi).
