The way the US goes, so too will Jpns case law. Unless some enterprising litigant decides to file in Japan and beats the US courts to the punch.

One of the reasons why employers will lose lawsuits like this in the US is because Facebook pages almost always have lots of personal information - things such as age and race (and possibly religion and nationality as well) - can be easily found.

Exactly right. I've said it before and I'll say it again, IMO the average HR staffer anywhere on the planet is a moron. Asking for facebook access or, say, watching a video resume, just announces it for all the world to see. And sue.
