Everyone is still masked up though in spite of the ever rising temperatures.

Nice photo again today of Japan city life but appears only foreigners unafraid and confident enough not wear to a mask in public.

Not breaking rules. Japanese government says okay since May 11.

Just keep you distance and have your mask ready in respect to others if you need.

If they stop testing for it altogether they can achieve Covid Zero and everyone can ditch the masks and pretending there is an actual pandemic.

This area always remind me of the Intro part of Jdrama The Midnight Diner.

Counting going down every day, meaning number of foreign visitors will be add up but need to wear mask still.

Meanwhile those who have returned from overseas are living through their own Orwellian / CCP nightmare having to install the MySOS app and have themselves tracked and filmed in their homes multiple times per day to ensure they're not being naughty and going out while Japanese nationals can go to the USA and do whatever they like after a simple rapid test.

It's absolutely disgusting.

Great news. This won’t even be news worthy by July which coincidentally will be after the election which coincidentally will most likely be when they fully open the borders and stop this racist double standard…” tourism exchange…..”
