The Global Slavery Index for 2016 said an estimated 290,200 people in Japan, or 0.23 percent of the population, are in slave-like servitude. This includes people trafficked for sex work or trapped in debt bondage and forced labor. “There are concerning reports of involvement of highly organized crime in the Japanese sex industry, with well-established links for recruitment into sending countries such as Thailand,” said report author Fiona David of the Australia-based nonprofit Walk Free Foundation. The report also reflects long-standing allegations that a state-sponsored traineeship program locks foreign workers in unrewarding labor in Japanese industry and agriculture. It said Japan is among the richest nations doing the least about the problem within its borders. Voyage littéraire au Japon: Les librairies de Tokyo.

★ Itô Noé (1895-1923), une féministe anarchiste au Japon - Socialisme libertaire. Il y a à peine un siècle, dans un Japon qui se modernise sur le modèle occidental, apparaissent en même temps le capitalisme, l’anarchisme et le féminisme.

★ Itô Noé (1895-1923), une féministe anarchiste au Japon - Socialisme libertaire

Itô Noé fait partie de ces pionnières qui osent contester l’ordre impérial et patriarcal. Sa vie illustre le parcours difficile de cette jeune génération qui tente de vivre librement dans une société autoritaire. Itô Noé naît en 1895 dans le village d’Imajuku dans le département de Fukuoka, au sud du Japon, dans un Japon en ébullition culturel et idéologique, qui sort à peine du féodalisme.

Children's Day in Japan and Koinobori Song. Children's Day May 5 is Japan's national holiday known as, Kodomo no hi 子供の日 (Children's day).

Children's Day in Japan and Koinobori Song

It is a day to celebrate the health and happiness of children. Until 1948, it was called, "Tango no Sekku (端午の節句)", and only honored boys. Although this holiday became known as, "Children's Day", many Japanese still consider it a Boy's Festival. On the other hand, "Hinamatsuri (ひな祭り)", which falls on March 3rd, is a day to celebrate girls.

Essential movie, comic, DVD & TV news : Seven Films by Yasujiro Ozu. I just received this from the exceptionally cool cats at Madman Entertainment, based in my hometown of Melbourne, Australia – and it’s worthy of its very own article, which is why I’ve penned this piecemeal overview. So what the heck am I actually on about? Well, I may be in the midst of a particularly insane flu/virus that’s knocked my socks off over the past week – deliriously dreaming up stuff like a talking octopus that was my pet, and a downright cool one at that; I doubt I can eat octopus sushi again for a bit. Anyway, dragging my medicine-addled brain back on track, I’m talking up Madman’s new Directors Suite box set Seven Films by Ozu Yasujiro, just released at the end of last year and an essential addition to any fledging fan of Japanese cinema since it includes not just his most famous film Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story, 1953), but six other Ozu gems – along with documentaries galore, including one by Wim Wenders.

So who exactly was this Ozu character, and why should we care?
