But the Olympics are ok? Only cash grab events are allowed people!! No sports just for fun are allowed!

Not enough or not thick enough brown envelopes perhaps?

I would think this is less than 1000 people overall, not in a major city, and they do have their own planes… why not?

This is a sport many Japanese love and follow year after year, unlike 99% of Olympic sports you rarely hear about and definitely get on TV.

By October much more of the population will be vaccinated and people will be less worried.

And the b.s. continues!

A couple of bike racers and few(er) spectators are a no-go.

But the Olympics have to commence!

What a joke!

Well , it doesn't bring as much pork to Dentsu and other LDP amakudari chums as Olympics so it might well be " protect the safety of Japanese people " as the bs artist Suga likes to say
