Heavy snowfall forecast for Sea of Japan areas through Feb. 18.
Residents living along the Sea of Japan coast are advised to be on the alert for heavy snow through Feb. 18 due to a strong cold air mass and developing low-pressure system.

Japan trade deficit reaches 8-year high as energy imports soar.
Japan racked up a 2.2 trillion yen trade deficit last month, an eight-year high, as the cost of energy imports soared, the government said Thursday.
The Finance Ministry said exports edged up 9.6 percent in January from the same month the previous year. Imports jumped 39.6 percent, resulting in the sixth straight month of trade deficits, it said.
The amount is the biggest since January 2014, when the trade deficit totaled nearly 2.8 trillion yen.

NATO: Russia misleads world on troop movements near Ukraine.
NATO allies accused Russia of misleading the world by saying it was returning some troops to bases, reporting that Moscow has instead added as many as 7,000 more forces near its tense border with Ukraine. The alliance warned Thursday that the buildup has only strengthened its resolve.
After a handful of positive signals from Russia that eased tensions earlier in the week, the pendulum appeared to be swinging in the opposite direction again.
