Lemma 10.162.3. Let $R$ be a ring. To check that $R$ is universally Japanese it suffices to show: If $R \to S$ is of finite type, and $S$ a domain then $S$ is N-1.
Proof. Namely, assume the condition of the lemma. Let $R \to S$ be a finite type ring map with $S$ a domain. Let $L$ be a finite extension of the fraction field of $S$. Then there exists a finite ring extension $S \subset S' \subset L$ such that $L$ is the fraction field of $S'$. By assumption $S'$ is N-1, and hence the integral closure $S''$ of $S'$ in $L$ is finite over $S'$. Thus $S''$ is finite over $S$ (Lemma 10.7.3) and $S''$ is the integral closure of $S$ in $L$ (Lemma 10.36.16). We conclude that $R$ is universally Japanese. $\square$
