Now that's quite some social distancing to be seen here (NOT!).

But maybe Friday night(s) the virus stops spreading in special areas, so no big deal?

THIS is what not to do. The delta variant is celebrating with y'all in that crowd...

It's the magic of perspective in photography, Monty.

Here's a non-Kyodo photo of the torch relay in Miyagi earlier this week. Can you see how all the buses, coaches and trucks look very big, and how the runner looks tiny and very far away? Can you see that?

Wonderful scene! Only 4 weeks to go until Tokyo Olympic. It's a fever!

Are these protesters?

They look suspiciously like people that actually want to enjoy the Olympics, and from what I read in the comments section here in JT, I know that is impossible.

Once in a lifetime for elderly to enjoy the Olympic moment but at huge risk. I think they would rather want to enjoy themselves than to save the young people.
