The world is watching as Japan faces yet another crisis – this time a potential nuclear fallout from its damaged power stations. However far away from the nuclear sites, Japanese businesses are coping with other uncertainties.
Rolling blackouts are causing disruption to infrastructure and business facilities, while many workers fail to arrive for work.
