Came back through Haneda last week and I must say - the amount of rigmarole you have to go through. A test before, a test during immigration, and then a test 3 days after to leave quarantine. This is despite me having already been vaccinated twice and having had Covid in February. Little bit of overkill? Especially given the low numbers we're now seeing.

My own country has ditched all border restrictions, precaution requirements, and even masks. Was great to see. I look forward to the day Japan does so too. Hopefully in the near future.

If you had of gotten the booster, you could have walked straight out of the Japanese airport and gone home. Like I recently did. Glad I got boosted!!

Except for a handful of designated countries, 7 right now, we also get back home straight, without booster, and just have to quarantine. Not a big deal, except paying for the test on day 3, or accepting the 7 day quarantine.

Even boostered, still have to quarantine if coming back from on of those 7 countries

-8 ( +7 / -15 )

Not alarming at all...

-10 ( +6 / -16 )

Give it another 3 months and all the entry requirements will be dropped like most other sensible countries have already done.

-5 ( +13 / -18 )

What people aren't clearly explaining is that without the 3rd shot, you have to serve penance in a 12 sq. metre hotel for 4 days.

Well at least that was my experience. Just to confirm...a third shot gets you a walk while just 2 shots has you in a small hotel. Mine was APA.

Those guys are brutal.

Lots of different experiences I'm hearing for the quarantine coming back. Thanks for sharing them! Will keep those in mind if I feel like traveling sometime this year.

Numbers falling fast as we see Omicron become less and less relevant. Streets are busy, normal people enjoying their lives and maybe soon borders fully open.

-4 ( +10 / -14 )

My own country has ditched all border restrictions, precaution requirements, and even masks. 

Welcome back.

Good to hear relaxing the requirements didn't seem to have an appreciable impact on the covid situation there

Ah thanks, good to know

These are horrible numbers for a Sunday … holiday when already inadequate testing is even more rare…. Buckle up for next week peeps.

-6 ( +11 / -17 )

Get ready for the wave, as people took on GW again. Like last year when citizens took in the holidays the numbers rose, I don't think this year would be any different. As I have always said Covid is here to stay, its not going anywhere. Get ready to get boosted and boosted because this virus changes like the weather.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

Okinawa numbers still way up there.

Buckle down for GW; stay masked, stay inside, order in.

Everyone can go travel around this country after summer, when it is safer.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

I have to say it again; These numbers do not reflect the actual number of tests taken. Holidays, bad weather, etc can reduce the number of tests taken, and thus the reported totals.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

10 people in Tokyo with severe symptoms??? How is this even news worthy?

3 ( +7 / -4 )
