Anyone know what “other countries” don’t need visas? Can’t seem to find it.

classic US tactic, stir the pot then leave, leaving others to brace for potential war...

My worry is that China will most likely back Russia, then North Korea will get upset and get involved and then japan will be dragged into all this.

It’s so funny seeing all the triggered people who are against this…. “I hope it stays the same!” Why? How does this effect your life in anyway shape or form.
let people be happy, let people love whoever they want. People who complain about this kind of topic must be so miserable for not wanting people to be happy.
im so glad things might change here in japan.

Had my first vaccination today. I feel slightly safer, can’t wait to have the second but I will still continue to follow basic rules because I want to keep others safe too…. Sick and tired of seeing all these dumb anti vaxers spouting nonsense.

You say protect the vulnerable yet you want to continue like nothing is happening, so what take your mask off and meet someone who is potentially vulnerable and possibly infect them?
the reason why we wear those “face diapers” is to protect others more so than ourselves. It’s comments like yours that are really frustrating because it seems to me that you only care about yourself.

We have been saying the same stuff for almost 2 years, we know the government don’t test enough. It’s so stupid.
im sat here with my 2 year old with a fever of 39.5 coughing like crazy, got all the symptoms.
took him to the docs on Saturday and was told it’s “just a normal cold, don’t worry”
it’s been like it non stop, took him to a different docs today and was told the same. I asked if we could have a PCR and they said we don’t need one…..
my son gets colds a lot, this isn’t a cold.
the government should test more, but like I said before, they won’t change.

I find it weird seeing people saying “I see people not wearing masks, no protective screens”
where are you guys? Everywhere I see people are masked up, and all the bars I have seen have screens.
yesterday on a packed train everyone was wearing masks not talking.
the numbers are getting out of control but what’s worse is the lack of testing and the vaccine roll out.
my wife had hers on Wednesday and said the process was quick and smooth and doesn't understand what is taking the JGov so long.

Why is it that japan never seem to exceed over 10k tests?
this is such a joke, and only 40,000 vaccinated people in almost a month is bs.
the gov need to step up their game BIG time. Mind you, it’s been over a year and they haven’t done anything yet so I don’t hold my breath.

Funny thing though is my wife who is a dentist said the same thing last week. Her clinic got a letter saying that they will be in the category to be vaccinated first in early March and the general public roll out starts in may.
must have been a mistake I guess...

I never ceases to amaze me how stupid people are.
1 why are they allowing travelers into the country in the first place?
2 why the hell would you travel to another county if you have problems breathing and Have other symptoms.
if one thing this pandemic shows us is that people don’t care about the effect one persons actions have on potentially the world.
it’s so infuriating.

2000 tests?! That’s embarrassing and just so so so stupid.
roll out the vaccines now japan! Hurry up before more people die

I think it’s commons sense that’s a huge problem right now. Not only in japan has these “go to travel” type of campaigns caused in most cases a spike in covid cases. As soon as they announced the campaign I’m pretty sure the vast majority of people were thinking it was a bad idea. However people have become impatient, seeking “normality” and have had enough. I get it, however this virus dosent care about that. We should wait to travel/ eat out, but at the same time we have to help those who work in travel/restaurants. It’s a hard thing.
these are all positive things however the government should wait until we have a solid vaccine in the country and announce GoTo again. I think people would feel safer and use the opportunity then.

Reckless, where did this “let’s get back to work” mumbo jumbo come from? The vast majority of us HAVE been back to work for months and months.

i don’t understand the “spirit” of these bars?
what, the fact that these girls are paid to pretend to be interested in you and your life and just praise you while when you leave they slag you off and think you’re lame XD
sureeeeee have fun buddy!

You go to girls bars? Are you seriously having to pay a girl to talk to you? That’s really really sad.

I’m glad it’s lower than 200, even if these are just figures. It’s a peace of mind knowing that we MIGHT be making progress with covid.

well considering they said that covid is caused by flu then I highly doubt he is a doc.
Im also in Shinjuku so I agree it is very hard to keep your guard up however it is up to you to go out and engaging with people. As we have seen most of the new cases are due to people going to izakayas and clubs. They should limit business times and be harder on owners who aren’t keeping checks on the hygiene of these places. Kabukicho is a pit so it’s no surprise it kicked off there.
like I said, it’s hard almost impossible I would say to always have your guard up but it seems that people are starting to just think it’s over. People need to be more aware that’s all.

Please tell me how qualified you are in regards to medical knowledge, this ISNT like the flu at all, as someone who has had people in their family contract covid who have said first had it’s nothing like the flu. Comments like yours drive me nuts.
it’s idiotic thinking like “close your doors, lock yourselves in and might as well stop breathing and I’m going to live my life“ is a valid comment, It isn’t about YOU it’s about everyone else, the reason why this virus is on the rise is because people are letting their guards down and thinking the worst is over.

I understand that this is a problem, but I think this news has become way out of hand. It's just some silly kid doing stupid things, noticing that he has a lot of followers on YouTube and then playing that to his advantage, only boosting his ego further. This sort of thing happens everyday, the police should focus on more serious problems.
