Bad week for transportation in Japan

So i was reading my usual. Nothing struck me as strange until i read that a flight from Haneda (tokyo) to Sapporo almost crashed into another plane. One was arriving and the other one was leaving. The pilots misheard the instructions to wait and failed to check these instructions. This happened to be the same flight that i took to the Snow Festival in Sapporo only a week earlier. Quite scary. The plane nearly rear ended the other one.

AND, the main story on the front of the newspaper today is that a navy ship hit a fishing boat. NOW, how does that happen? I thought they had radar etc. There are two men missing from the fishing boat. I have never heard of this happening ever before. Quite scary i think!!!!!
