Posted in: Tokyo reports 369 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,884 See in context

The numbers aren't being fiddled as such, the MHLW has just "revised" its way of counting cases. That this "revision" has led to a miraculous decrease in numbers, so that Japan is now no longer in Stage 4 of the pandemic is just a coincidence. Medical advisors say that the Olympics should not proceed if Japan is at Stage 4 of the pandemic. Now it's not, so the Olympics can go ahead! Hurrah!

Japan. Fudging numbers since 1868.

Lisbon. For the culture, food, wine and climate.

Posted in: ANA conducts COVID digital health passport trial at Tokyo airport See in context

This is nothing new at all. Seems that most of the posters here are too young to remember, or never used the yellow International Certificates of Vaccination book. In (at least) the '70s and '80s you needed to be vaccinated for diseases like Yellow Fever and get the stamp to prove it in the book before you could travel to certain countries. Every thing old is new again. It is not a big deal.

Posted in: Marriott to open new Luxury Collection hotel in Kyoto in November See in context

Was actually supposed to open at the end of July, but was pushed back due to Covid.

Believe it or not, there is still a decent market for luxury hotels in Japan, even now. This hotel will do very well when things return to normal. (or near enough to normal)

Posted in: Go To fiasco may see gov't paying Tokyoites' cancellation fees See in context

Here's a wild idea for the clueless government.

Make the travel agents, airlines and hotels etc waive the cancellation fees. There really shouldn't even be cancellation fees in place during this pandemic anyway.
