The Judiciary (everywhere, not solely in Japan) is not interested in your reasoning as a paramount consideration, i.e. respect for its decisions.
That's why you have the US authorities chasing after the Alcatraz escapees to this very day.
All that you are arguing should be ascertained at a trial; the "suspect" does not decide where/when a trial should/shall/will or may take place!
They helped an accused escape and make a mockery of the Japanese Laws and authority inside Japan.
JT"expertise" agrees because they hate Japan and don't like its laws (among all other things). Primarily, lack of legal knowledge too.
Well, really sorry this is no longer the Wild West, where you are allowed to run from the Law because you abhor it.
Locus Delicti is Japan.
Japanese rules, norms, and processes will/must apply.
Not the Tongan ones.

"What crime did they commit?"
"sent prosecutors to the United States the same day to arrest the two men, Michael Taylor, 60, a former Green Beret, and his son Peter Taylor, 28, for enabling a criminal suspect to escape, among other charges, "
What's wrong with reading the article?!
Bail jumping (helping/abetting) is what Japan is not willing to forgive (they can't), and the US concurs.
All the rest is a general deficit of legal knowledge on display here by most"experts".

"suggest you learn about Japanese laws before applying British laws."
I did indicate that my reasoning was under UK law (which I studied and practice, therefore I am).
As far as your innuendo, I am not the American President.
Also, there is explicitly a mention of the fact that I didn't think Japanese law (which I do not know) would be that different from British (which I know more than many). They appear to differ more than I expected.
" facts come to be known that could not have been known (or could not be expected to have been known) at the outset"

"After the organization changed the job requirements during the probationary period.
Japan, one of the few countries, can be so proud of being so hypocritical!"
During a probationary period, you are not an employee. You are a job applicant.
There is nothing stopping an Employer from updating requirements to your tasks/expected capabilities.
After Employment, you still can be dismissed /made redundant.
Poor job performance is a ground (fair reason) for dismissal.
Provided all fair dismissal steps are followed that is the end for the prospective applicant.
I know as I get paid a lot of money in dealing with such similar cases.

"If they judged his Japanese to be sufficient at the end of the probation period, they should stick to it. "
Employers have a right to extend your probationary period if you don't cut the mustard..
They do not necessarily have to keep you, just because of the expiration of the required probation period.
That is UK Empl Law, but I do not think Japan will be much different.

"Probably done by diplomats and aristocracy in those days (fully aware of the principle).
Although, an agreement to be fully secure would have to be "set in stone".
If you are "aware" then you MUST know this is/shouldbe international practice, not simply "something done by diplomats and aristocrats)
I do not want to get involved into pointless arguments about something well established.

"No, it is due to Pfizer changing the label from 5 to 6 doses per vial after Japan already agreed to buy a certain amount of doses. As written in the article, we don't know if Japan is paying for the 6th dose. But many other countries such as France, Belgium and Sweden are having exactly the same problem."
Unfortunately, many posting here detest the truth.
They would rather believe in an alternative World where Japan and the Japanese are responsible for the Dodo's extinction. And the Dino's too.
Never mind their lovely other, better countries are experiencing exactly the same problems as Japan, in many cases faring far worse.

"This does not sound like a scientifically sound way to check the safety of the vaccine.... people self reporting anything they felt, by memory, weeks or probably months after receiving the shots. "
That is what's happening right here in the UK. Users report their own symptoms at their own pleasure.
"The agency published yellow card data for covid-19 vaccines given between 9 December 2020 and 24 January 2021, which comprise 22 820 reports from 7 164 387 first doses and 474 156 second doses.1 Most of the reports (16 756) are from people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and these list 49 472 suspected reactions. Administration of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine began later, on 4 January, and 6014 yellow cards were reported up to 24 January, detailing 21 032 suspected reactions. A further 50 yellow card reports did not specify the brand of vaccine."
Followed this beauty:

"Agreed. In other, developed countries, you cannot take a default judgement without first sending notification to the defendant."
That's not entirely correct, as the notification was sent.
All the defendant could do is apply to set aside the default judgment.

Actually, the majority of people in the UK are against the vaccine.

Currently in practice.
Hope that is enough for you.
This has got everything to do with attempts to impose Common Law Rules on a Civil System country!.

"that's authoritarian and inquisitive."
Well, that's your opinion.
However, this a FACT.
Not open for debate.
Civil Systems are Inquisitorial (I made a spelling mistake in my previous post, sorry), not Inquisitive. The Inquisition ended in the thirteenth century.
Unless you are adamant Common Law Rules are and should be supreme (wouldn't surprise me though).
I am the product of UK Common Law and beg to disagree.
Common-Law is good at letting murderers escape justice on a simple loophole.
Not in Civil Systems though. as any such loophole will be reinterpreted to fill in the perceived absence of a rule dealing with the issue directly.
JT's biggest "problem" is far too many people commenting on matters they have no legal background and understanding of. Simple as that.
Reading wiki is not sufficient.
You go and tell the French theirs is an authoritarian Legal System.
Better still commit a Crime in Paris then demand to be tried under Common Law precepts.
Sit in a French cell and rejoice.

US Defence Lawyers trained to recognise Common Law Systems ONLY (apparently), trying to impose their rules on someone else's country with a totally different set of Legal Systems.
Someone MUST tell them that a Civil System of Law is Inquisitive and NOT Adversarial (as in Common Law)!!!
Judges, Prosecutors and the Defence are not antagonists, just like under the Common Law.
Despite the assumption that the code regulates all cases that could occur in practice, that's simply not possible. Thus, whenever certain cases are not regulated by the Code, the courts shall/should apply some of the general principles used to fill any gaps. This how Civilian Systems operate.
In France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, everywhere other than Common Law countries (in the minority anyway).
Oh, and Japan too.
Getting away on a non-existent loophole in Civil Systems of Law is akin to finding a loophole amongst your brain cells.

"You're probably already immune, naturally."
It's called building antibodies.
And they don't last more than 8 months at best, according to the surveillance team studying the efficacy of the Pfizer vaccine over here in London.
I heard this directly from a friend from HS who is now a Virologist actively involved with the surveillance programme.
PLEASE, get better informed before passing on false hopes to all.
