This whole quasi measures situation is just masking the inability and incapacity of the central government to take more decisive measures and protect us all.
The idea of let's blame and shame the restaurants and bars so we can avoid any decisions that will inconvenience any of the big sponsors to the party, is really not going to work this time.
We are all worried - Omikron is different from before and this time half measures won't stop it.
I hope something changes this time.

Blah blah blah and even more blah blah blah..... Pledges are not commitments but a nice way to attract more votes.
To all put there who are hoping to get elected - stop promising and start acting then you might get people respect and their interest to vote.
Until then stop playing around with people's basic rights and their hopes for an equal future

And this time and age with movements like theb#metoo flashing out all the inequalities and past problems and trying to find solutions..... The Japanese press still is pondering along the hard line right whether to allow a woman to keep her status in a public position that actually means little to most of the "commoners" aka the rest of us.
Maybe it's time for an update - not only for the royalty in Japan but also for the news

Right so Abe backs Suga and for sure Suga backs Abe..... That's normal for the party to survive and be in power.
The question is who backs these two, from the voting public and even more why????

Sure.... Take your time on approving this. Maybe you can hold a couple of subcommittees to decide what the committees should do and will be held responsible if things go south.
After all what a difference 25 days make?

And attempt to maybe justify the unjustifiable..... Doesn't anyone in the government have the sligltest grain of decensy on them?

What do you expect.... Dinosaur banks with dinosaur systems and practises that date back to the 80's.
The worst is that they don't care about the frustration they cause to their customers and that their customers don't do anything to change that!!!!

Didn't last year ex prime minister Abe and his cabinet used the same tone of "don't worry it's all OK, we will triumph and the game will go as scheduled" and then......
Games without people are not games at all.
Anyway people's lives are more important than company profits. Or maybe.......?

I'm just soon enough will appear in the train.... Just can't wait who is going to be spending $600 for headphones... The moment you can buy a phone with the same money???

So let me get this.... Someone or someone's though that the only way out of having 500 different payment ways and an NFC system compatible only in Japan is to create a new payment method that probably will take years to integrate and even more time to adopt...???
Wow that's clever

We don't want any special "rules" on how we should be treated. We are also human beens and we only asking to have the same rights and obligations like the rest of you.
And yes harassment on the workplace just because of your sexual orientation is alive and well in Japan but also in a number other "advanced" nations.

... And this guy is responsible for Japan's economy and running the cou try in case Abe san is not able??????
Seems fact checking in our age has become a thing not required anymore. Moreover seems people like Aso (uneducated, unliterate, unaware of the reality and the rest of the world and complete out of touch from the wants and needs of their people) are becoming more and more common.
Why? Why is noone from this goverment standing up and make his mouth stop spitting out all these phlegm? What does he has that's so special that allows him to talk all these nonsense and noone dares to confront him in public?
Cmon Japan you are way better than this!!!

Wow.... Welcome to the 20th century. Next step hold all these press conferences online and not cramp all these people in one room.... Surely but steadily Japanese goverment makes baby steps (sarcasm)

I think it's quite a simple solution just force the providers to operate 24/7 over staurdays and Fridays....... Buuuuut as rumour has it in Japan who has the mula has the top word sooooo do the maths....... Why spend extra money to change something that has been working with little problems (ahm)?????
Think about the benefits we all get to sleep longer hours and be more energetic next day (sarcasm)

Another addition to the multitude of payment systems already present in Japanese market. Designed again by those who actually do not care how to make people lives easier but instead trying to make an extra buck (mind you this service will not be free) using archaic technologies.
The funny thing is that they actually think that tourists would be interested in using these services.
Who uses barcodes to pay for every day transactions abroad?
What phone numbers are they planning to charge? If you traveling and you roam the last thing you want is extra charges on your phone.Who uses LINE outside Japan and is line pay available in other parts of the world.
One step front and 15 backwards.
