On 13 May, The Japan Times reported that the government said that it will ban exports of quantum computers and other advanced technologies to Russia from 20 May as part of additional sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine.  The ban will involve 14 items including quantum computers, machine tools, 3D printers and 8 related technologies. Exports of machine tools with higher performance are already blocked, and Japan prohibits exports to Russia of luxury items in 19 categories, including vehicles and watches, as well as a total of about 300 goods and technologies, such as semiconductors.
