Cancelling the games is the most sensible obvious option.
Why risk lives , ok the games has cost billions of yen, but how much do you wish to put on your own families life

It just shows how shallow minded people can be.
Maybe when the pandemic began , Japan should have been saying avoid all chinese and wear masks if you see them, but no, they were over in their droves spending their money.
Priorities and racism totally wrong I'm afraid Japan.

While all British citizens were locked out of Japan, Japanese residents were still flying to the uk and importing the variant into their society.
Also the Brazilian variant has been noted.
We must not forget there is only really one variant, a Chinese one.
Vaccine is a must, the uk is virtually virus free now as 70% of the population is vaccinated.
Japan needs to put vaccination priority over the Olympics, after all this is just a sport, the virus is a killer.

This is so so sad.
virus, financial and expectations are all factors in suicides.
This hurts reading, what about the family.
Rest in peace

This is so predictable of the money driven Japanese government.
Lets start business travel in November and then just in time for Chinese New year celebrations in January.
Please come and spend your money here , we are not botheed about normal tourists from other countries who actually love and respect the Japanese culture and citizens.
As someone from the UK who has been denied access to marry his wife to be , offering to self isolate and pay all relevant costs and take PCR tests , just to read the business man can just waltz in and out with no precautions .
So so predictable Japan.

I pray and hope they allow normal UK citizens entry by the 23rd of October.
I was due to marry my beautiful Japanese fiancee in April, but we had to cancel due to flight and border restrictions.
We have rearranged the wedding for the end of October.
I see 5 countries including Netherlands have lifted their entry ban on couples in a long term relationship.
I really hope Japan will see and consider this .

Thank you for your reply and suggestion.
At the moment Japanese citizens are unable to travel anywhere world wide.
At the moment only discussions about business people visiting Vietnam etc exist.
If she could fly to the UK I'm sure her case would be packed and waiting.
It took so long to plan our original wedding
I had to visit the British Embassy in Japan and prepare many legal documents in the UK
I hope the Japanese government are lenient on the original dates to which these were signed , due to current extreme circumstances.

my first post on here.
i live in the uk and my fiancée in Okayama.
we were due to marry in April, but obviously the virus put paid to that.
we rearranged for Halloween, but the closer it gets the less confident I feel about japan opening its borders in time.
my stress and anxiety are through the roof , I feel physically ill.
i noticed as from yesterday the Netherlands made travel restrictions exempt for couples in a relationship.
why can’t japan and other countries follow suit , love isn’t tourism, it is somebody’s life.
