Japan Statistics

Japan's embassy in Moscow paid 71 million yen ($710,000) in rent to an organization affiliated with Russia's Foreign Ministry. The payment was for two years of rent for a building that was used for storage. It had been the site of the previous Japanese embassy until March 2007, when Japan's embassy moved to a new facility.

95% of marine distress calls sent to the Japanese Coast Guard are false alarms.

Of the 385 alerts last year, 367 were false. Forty-two percent of those were due to operational errors; 38% were a result of mechanical trouble or poor maintenance.
