Even if you remove the running track, can the seats be moved closer to the pitch? I doubt it. They should have built a proper (running-track-less) football stadium in the first place.
The current first row is around 10 meters high so an additional 10-15 rows in a shallow bowl over the running track is more than feasible
Of the hundreds of billions wasted on pork barrel roads and entertaining a measly billion a year on a world class stadium which will be used by more than 2 million people next year doesn't seem like a big concern in the wider picture of things

They are right in that the only two sports that can fill such a large stadium is soccer and rugby.
Unfortunately, nether is the most popular sport in Japan, and the Japan team is mediocre in both. In other words, this stadium will never be full other than once every few years at most
I was at the national stadium for Japan all blacks in October which was sold out
San freece vs Cerzo Osaka which had 45,000 spectators in October and Tokyo fc vs Reysol which had 55,000 in August
So you are wrong about both soccer and Rugby not being popular in Japan and the stadium not being able to sell out
I have sat in the each tier and in both the main stand and behind goal stands
The view was fantastic each time, the steepness of the stands makes it feel like you are close to the action even with the running track. The atmosphere for the Levin cup final was amazing the roof holds in the atmosphere.
Access and amenities are excellent too
Now the stadium is going to used for more events and concerts the cost will come down remember it wasn't until October that the stadium was finally allowed to be full

Personally I no longer wear a mask in any situation, it's sometimes uncomfortable and I feel like pressure to wear a mask
However, as I believe masks are no longer needed are detrimental to childrens it's important to make a stand and go maskless .
Two years ago, wearing a mask was for the betterment of society now I believe it's for the betterment of society not to wear a mask.
If you are unhappy with the continued use of masks, make a stand and stop wearing a mask.

All 3 penalties were identical misses. It's clear the plan was to score the corner but after the first miss they should have realized the keeper is good at low shots and instead aimed for the top corner. Unfortunately what is the team's strong point; sticking to a plan untimely lost them the game.

I wonder what the odds were for Japan beating Germany and Spain and finishing top of the group?
Top the group was 10/1
I have 50 pounds on japan reaching the last 8 at 14/1
I thought top of the group was impossible

Japan can only play counter attacking football. They lack the creativity to make space when the opposition sit deep. The formation should have been 3-5-2-1 not 5-4-1. The players played poorly but the formation and and game plan are the reason they didn't win
Terrible goal keeping is the reason they lost, gonna was too far forward and flat footed

Looks like people are not reporting any more. And why should they- who wants to quarantine for 10 days plus 7 day for close contacts
Close contact is 3 days with a negative test result on day 2 or 3

Why count only 65 and over and severe cases and ignore data from everyone else?
Because 98% of deaths are people over 65 years old.
Because 96% of people under 65 recover within a few days at home if under 65
99.7% if under 50 7and 99.995 % if under 50 according to the latest data
Sorry, I didn't save the yahoo link

Next, the number reported do not include my Australian friend and her 2 children here in Japan. Her daughter was sent home on Friday with a fever, her son last night and how she knows it is COVID a home testing kit that was sent home with her children and it was positive. I am sure there more people like their case, and so, for a fact the numbers are higher and are not being reported.
If your friend called the houkenjyo it's included. But you probably knew that already

It's pretty simple, either:
if you're worried stay home. Don't go to work as health is more important than money.
Go out and wear a mask when and wear you want.Go to dinners etc and don't wear a mask
Me. I choose 3. If I get corona that's life. If I don't great. People might say that's selfish but if you're wearing a mask or staying home that do you have to worry about.

If you get corona most insurance policies pay out 10.000~20.000 a day per person as you are classified as an inpatient even though you are at home.
I know numerous families who received upwards of 250,000.
That's the main reason why many people get tested.

It's great they are not planning restrictions but unless they shorten the quarantine period the economy is going to grind to a halt anyway.

Apparently the decision for Abe to go to Nara was made yesterday. Does that mean this lunatic was planning to kill anyone and decided on Abe at the last minute??
