I feel like stopping by some local kissaten who offer some specialty. Glad to know that many "indies" kissatens have been able to survive the covid-hit economic crisis.
The major chain cafes are also ok for me as their products, service and ordering procedures are usually standardized regardless of places, thus carefree. The same latte is available across the country. It looks like Starbucks is popular and dominating in the Japanese cafe market as its cafes are often crowded with visitors.

Abe has noted a delay or suspension of consumption tax rise should there be another "Lehman crisis" or equivalents.
The Kumamoto earthquake may be such an equivalent.

I am sure that most and predominant posts on SNS are positive, uplifting as well as highly practical for those in affected areas. On the other hand, there are still someone trying to troll public sentiments. Anyone can be victims or aggressors, sometimes framed by a third party.
Please don't sweat, overreact, or get misled with confusing and malicious ones.
