Japanese kids/teens really need to learn how to swim and be taught basic water safety. In Australia you can’t graduate elementary school without passing a 50m swimming test.

This is not true

The other 95% prefer to go to the office.

Its crazy people don’t want to not work in a shoebox in Tokyo, one of the greatest cities in the world to go and explore, on their own all day ?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 8,638 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 46,199 See in context

We had 2 people staying in our apartment over the last weekend test positive and multiple friends also positive and have still been refused a test, at least until the contact tracers catch up to them, even though my partner has some symptoms.

We just get bounced around to all these lovely keigo speaking ladies making excuses for why it cannot be done.

It's a joke.
