Japan’s health and labour minister has defended workplaces that require women to wear high heels to work, arguing it is “necessary and appropriate” after a petition was filed against the practice.

The remark came when Takumi Nemoto was asked to comment on a petition by a group of women who want the government to ban workplaces from requiring female jobseekers and employees to wear high heels.

Missing books found?
Anthropologist Frederick Starr (1853-1933) was a prodigious collector of artifacts, photographs, and other materials pertaining to the Ainu, an indigenous people group in what is now northern Japan. Curiously, though, the whereabouts of his extensive library of Ainu-related books have long remained uncertain. Discover how this mystery may now have been solved by reading “The Case of Frederick Starr’s ‘Missing’ Ainu Book Collection” at http://blogs.loc.gov/international-collections/2019/04/the-case-of-frederick-starrs-missing-ainu-book-collection/?loclr=fbint.
