question:
who decides the drawing? 
ittf or the organizer (japan) or a computer lottery draw?

it seems that Harimoto is conveniently placed the opposite bracket to ML FZD and XX

The draw is done by the referee with the help of the competition manager. The players can do the draw themselves, let their teammates represent them, or leave it to the referee.

Draw ceremony for Japan Open 2019:

Viscaria FL - 91g
+ Neo H3 2.15 Blk - 44.5g(55.3g uncut bare)
+ Hexer HD 2.1 Red - 49.3g(68.5g 〃 〃)
= 184.8g

Big event this time, because it's an Olympic qualifier (just like the Pan Am Games).
Pan Am Games is not a qualifier.

You're right, North and South America must have separate qualifiers.

kinda wish ML and FZD were on other ends of the draw... a final between the two would be epic

then again, Harimoto seems to have a decent draw... could be a good contender to defend his result last year

side note, does anyone know why Lin Yun-Ju's name is spelled with a 'J'... from the way his name is actually  pronounced, I thought it should be with an 'R' like Lin Yun-Ru

An earlier post said that Harimoto Tomokazu had a good draw - I completely agree with that.

As far as Ito Mima goes, the draw is not that good - she will run into Chen Meng in the quarter final.
Ito is a much stronger player now, but still hard to tell who will win.

*** As long as these players from the qualification don't get drawn too close to Ito Mima - Ito will be fine.

Wang Yidi
Sun Yingsha
He Zhuojia:  From ITTF head-to-head (this data base may not be completely accurate.)
                    Surprised that He Zhuojia beat Ito Mima 5 times (no loss),
                    But only 1 win was relatively recent, in 2018. (other 4 wins were old.)

Correction:  Earlier I wrongly spelled her name as He Zhoujia.  Her correct name is He Zhuojia.

If one or more of above players is drawn into position 26 or 27,
that will be a bad draw for Ito Mima.

We'll maybe get another Liang Jingkun - Lin Gaoyuan showdown. After the WTTC, the China and Hong Kong opens, these 2 are creating some sort of a classico. I have to say I always wait for it now. For how long will LGY able to win it? Hugo, TH and WCT are in the way tho, even if the latter has not progressed as fast as I thought he would. That bottom draw is very interesting, it's tomorrow leadership + MJ as a bonus. 

At the 1/2 top it's more like business as usual, FZD chasing his daemons and the rest of the players. I do not know if the clash ML - FZD will happen but I am also waiting for it.

I had a thought I could not precisely word but it finally came: the 2019 Japan open has the smell of a major!

Both Ito Mima and Chen Meng are in the 4th Quarter (position 25 to 32).
Unless either one loses before they meet (highly unlikely), they will play against one another.

Since Ito is a much stronger player now, interesting to guess who will win.
I go for C.M. 60/40

Thats because the "J" is pronounced "R" sound just like "Juan" pronounced "Ron".

Since Tom took a shot at it:

Chen Meng vs Ito Mima:  60% - 40%

I'll take a stab at it as well.  Skip3119's assessment.

Chen Meng vs Ito Mima:  80% - 20%    (I am not good at this, but that's what I think.)

Does anyone else have an assessment of the situation?

I have never heard of that in my life...

J can be pronounced like an R??? Can anyone else support this statement because I cannot.

I've always thought J could be pronounced like H... Juan would be Huan to me...

I mean, I get names like Cheng I-Ching and Chuang Chih-Yuan at least they're consistent, but remain perplexed at Lin Yun-Ju

Trust me. If you use an Android phone with Google Cantonese (Chinese) Input, try input ru or yu for 儒 nothing shows up. But if you type ju the word 儒 will come up on the third page. This input method is unique to the Android IO. In Windows 10 (Extension)  you can input yu for 儒 but not ru.

Huan would be a much better pronunciation than Ron.

Awful draw for WCQ and Yan An. They play each other and winner potentially plays another CNT player, Xu Yingbin, or Cedric Nuytinck (WR#44) to get to the main draw.

Plug his name into google translate: 

林昀儒


Then click the speaker icon. You can then hear for yourself how it sounds. I hear a soft "J."

Why are people saying that Harimoto has a good draw? He's likely to meet LJK in the QF and while i know that last time they played he beat him 4-0, I do not see him beating him this time. Could be wrong though.

Not many good alternatives at a platinum event. Look at who FZD has to face at the QF.... ML. He was super lucky at the China Open with the best draw.

Lily Zhang beat her first opponent 4-0. Her 2nd opponent will be tougher... either Chen Szu Yu (TPE) or Che Xiaoxi (CHN). At least it's not SYS, WYD, HZJ, or HH. She has a chance.

HZJ lucky to have escaped. Looks like she lost confidence in her forehand and you're not going to win a push battle with a defender. Timeout helped her to refocus.

HZJ applause for honesty ...
Decisive game, which is not easy for her ....
The key point in the game is 5-4 in favor of Haruna .....
Ball raffle, table edge ....
The judge did not notice this touch and announced the score 5-5 ...
In my opinion, Haruna, too, did not notice ....
But HZJ corrected the judge, indicating that the correct score was 6-4 in favor of Haruna .....
