Numbers continue to fall. Good to see. Time for Japan to open the borders and get overseas tourism going again.

Bye bye corona!

-8 ( +9 / -17 )

Looking good, glad to see a relatively large week on week fall for our capital.

-7 ( +8 / -15 )

Another drop in the 1/47 prefectures Tokyo . Seems the rest of the country is still on a plateau. Perhaps with some more urging , the jgov can’t get those who whine about non existent restrictions to follow whatever they believe those non existent restrictions are .

-10 ( +6 / -16 )

If you go to a local medical clinic to try and get a test it is really difficult, and so, I don't take stock in these numbers after my own experience trying to get a test after being exposed to a number of COVID cases.

I don't take stock in these numbers 

is there any reason to be still interested in the numbers ?

-9 ( +5 / -14 )

Numbers in Hiroshima are not declining. Stable around 1200. Same as when the peak was in Tokyo.

Maybe the corona measures in Tokyo are better..

Gee Ashley. what are you saying, that the number could possibly be under-reported!? That's a wild allegation, but I assume you have some top secret contacts at the city hall who can back this up.

Open up move on enough with the sky is falling!

Now that I have had Covid I can’t believe that Govts are still perusing mass vaccinations and boosters till the cows come home! Just beggars belief!

enough already!

Last couple of years have shown Japan does need, and the Japanese don't want the large scale tourism to come back.

Not that it would matter much, since most of the tourists, and the ones that spend the most, are from China. They will not be back this year.

Japan is open for business and tourism. What’s the issue ?

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

Say …. Just say for example that Japan completely eliminates all border restrictions tomorrow. Who are y’all gonna blame airfares on ? Flight availability?

-11 ( +2 / -13 )

No, Steven, Japan is not open for Tourism.

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

It just keeps going up and up every week...

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

Wait...I thought the numbers were supposed to go UP because of Hanami, remember?
