Posted in: Tokyo Governor Koike hospitalized due to fatigue See in context

Must be very tiring being pampered, having constant meetings, dodging accountability for the Olympics fiasco and generally avoiding taking responsibility.

Sounds like Abe's strategy.

Hope she has a nice rest.

This is getting ridiculous now...

Ban foreign fans, but allow in sponsors, their families & guests... restrict admission to 10k people, ensure there is no cheering, no loud voices, no celebrating, but hey DRINK ASAHI SUPER DRY!!!

What's next ...

Posted in: Japan looks to ease virus state of emergency ahead of Olympics See in context

with new daily cases falling

Yesterday there were 501 new cases in Tokyo which was an increase and the first time in quite a while that the number exceeded 500...

Where is the evidence that new daily cases are falling?

So who wants the Olympics hot potato?

Given the fiasco with 2020/2021, and the fact that Japan seems to be held to ransom by IOC, which country in their right mind would actually want it?

Probably China or Russia again... they wouldn't take IOC crap...

Posted in: Suga regrets having to take all the heat for hosting Olympics during pandemic See in context

He is the Prime Minster of Japan and that is his job. Are we supposed to feel sorry for him?

He was always way out of his depth in this role and has created a huge mess.

Good riddance when election time comes.

Serena Williams, Nishikori out of French Open

Wow - Nishikori mentioned in the headline but the relatively long article was almost entirely about Williams!

Poor Kei mentioned briefly as "Zverev reached his third French Open quarterfinal by eliminating Kei Nishikori 6-4, 6-1, 6-1"

Fantastic journalism by JEROME PUGMIRE

Posted in: Communication the game changer for Tokyo Olympics: ex-IOC marketing chief See in context

"Don't worry." says an Irish guy who has been employed & handsomely rewarded by IOC throughout his career. He says, that Japanese people are "nervous about the timing" and that the Olympics are a sign of hope and celebration.

Yes. There is a Pandemic active in Japan and the rest of the world. People are getting infected.. people are dying. Nervous is right. It is not time to celebrate. Celebrate what? Cartoons are not the answer.

Such a meaningless article and what a Payne in the backside he is.

Better still, give them to IOC and Japan govt because there are a lot of dicks there that we need to be protected from.

Maybe a classic case of "If mother says no, then ask grandmother", where he is looking for redemption or approval anywhere he can get it?

As others have mentioned, it has absolutely no bearing on legal proceedings in Japan.

He is a fugitive.

"In order to make the Games a success it's necessary to take into account the feelings of the people," Kato said

Why start doing this now, when you have been blissfully disregarding and discounting public opinion about this over the past several months?

Luckily the train did not have an accident. 160 passengers.

Drivers should wear diapers or be given bottles to pee in. You may laugh, but why not?

Leaving your post while train is moving at 150km/hr is irresponsible and dangerous.

Wonder what the punishment will be,,,

Posted in: Most Japanese medical workers still not fully vaccinated See in context

Holy s***! They were supposed to be the first ones to be vaccinated...

Apart from politicians, their families and friends, exactly who makes up the 2% that have been vaccinated?

This really does show that Japan has deteriorated a staggering amount and incompetency is rife.

Doesn't the sheer fact that he is giving this speech remotely rather than being in Japan (as originally planned) really indicate the state of affairs?

For obvious reasons I don't need to elaborate.

Posted in: Vaccine chief Kono blames drug approval system for slow inoculation drive See in context

Ignoring the approval process, the fact is that the Pfizer vaccine was approved in Japan on 14-Feb. It is now exactly 3 months later and just over 2% of the population have been vaccinated.

The government now announces that they aim to vaccinate 1 million people a day... this means that in the 3 months since approval they could have given 90 million vaccinations and a lot of the country would be getting back to normal. Instead we are in a permanent state of emergency with absolutely no long term plan...

Such incompetence from politicians that the people of Japan voted and trusted to act in the best interest of the country.

Kono loves to blame everything and everybody (did he finally get his own plane?) but this is HIS responsibility.

God help us.

How could IOC have final say in running an event that is held in Japan? That is crazy!

Suga never put the Olympics first?

Posted in: Tokyo state of emergency does not affect Games: IOC See in context

Why continue to push this agenda during a pandemic?

Motivation is GREED by IOC (those advertising $$$$) and maybe a bit of stubbornness by Japan.

The situation in Japan is worse than 1 year ago and the authorities have learned and done very little.

Oh yeah...and where are those vaccines?

Posted in: What are some of the most interesting radio programs in Japan? See in context

i used to listen to InterFM in the mornings around 8am but it has changed drastically.

They started introducing this "radio shopping" segment for 5 minutes & have cut back (fired?) many of their top DJs and things went downhill from there.

I guess its a sign of the times and they are desperate for money.

Sad really. I wouldn't be surprised to see them close down soon.
