Why hang up to test how many people have the virus, when it is already out in the community without control?
The important thing is that when testing for who has had the virus get started with mass testing, to get them out into the community and get important features started.
They probably has some immunity.

I am Swedish and Sweden's tactic is to achieve the immunity of citizens at the rate that healthcare can manage. It seems to be Japan's tactic too. Only in the future can we determine if it was right.

On 11 March, the same day as the first Swedish death to COVID-19, the Swedish government passed a new law, limiting freedom of assembly by temporarily banning all gatherings larger than 500 people, with threat of fine and prison. The ban will apply until further notice. On 27 March the government announced that gatherings of more than 50 people were banned.
It doesn't seem as if Abe is copying the Swedes. There are no similar laws in Japan.
Fines and imprisonment only apply to event organizers of events not for individuals
