What a brilliant man. Him and Hayao M are both national treasures and certainly two of the biggest reasons I initially first came to Japan back in my youth.

How much money do they actually have ? 50 trillion? 500 trillion? 5000 trillion? I’d love to know. They keep just adding extra tens of trillions like it ain’t no thing. Maybe next time they’ll say, ‘ Here’s 50 more trillion, but that’s the last you’re getting because we only have 8 trillion left after that ‘

Cool. Maybe clubs might now be able to open on the condition they replace their smoke machines with disinfectant spray machines!

...intensifying the challenge for policymakers battling a once-in-a-century pandemic.
can someone explain to me why this Is being viewed as a once-in-a-century pandemic? It’s clear it occurred because of our growing infringement upon nature and wildlife, so by that rationale, if we can carry on as we do, after this , Ebola, SARS etc. can’t we kind of expect it’s possible another virus will come even before this one is controlled?

You’d never know Japan was seemingly on top of it if you went by all the anti-Japan comments on here and in the press. I think Japan and all the people that live here should be praised for keeping the numbers so low so far, because although it’s not all because of behavioral factors, it certainly is in part down to things like well drilled mask wearing and social distancing ( inbuilt in the culture), cleanliness in general, limited physical contact, social manners, diet, levels of fitness or lack of obesity, obedience to governmental covid advice etc. these are all things that I think people here do well, and so enough of the Japan bashing folks:)

My guess is if they are already out of the country, their visa will expire on the same day as before. They’ll have to get another visa if they don’t get back here before that date.

They should make new stickers with TOKYO 2021? on them. The taxis can wear them too. We might need new confused looking cute mascots too.

Nice. From a purely selfish point of view from someone who lives here, I hope Japan can lead the way now in how to sensibly deal with this thing.

Right! As if the oven that is Japan in Summer, slowly raising in temperature too owing to the world heating up too, wasnt enough. Putting on a mask is gonna seal the deal!

Is it also possible, as displayed elsewhere in Japan and the world for that matter, that less overall human activity, has led to more wild animal sightings, as they wander more freely? I hope so as I like animals.

I don’t get why small and medium businesses get helped out whereas even smaller, even needier enterprises don’t.

90% wow. It’s really hard to imagine that when the media here says it’s all under control and the numbers announced are low.

I remember back in the day in China when let’s just say, the copyright rules were less stringent, and Mickey Mouse was grey and evil looking. And Doraemon wasn’t blue.

This will come as a horrid surprise to those that would have the whole world locked down stringently until further notice. For me, this lifting of the emergency in some prefectures is really welcoming news.

When all the music festivals, bars, restaurants, theater, cinema, international holidays are closed, nice to see mom’s day is preserved! Big up to MOMS

I don’t agree with Musk often, but I like how he regularly exercises his right to say exactly what he thinks. Too many folk or media try to shut down the opinions of regular folk that are different to theirs, and in turn, too many people are afraid to say what they really think. So thanks Musk for your whacked out opinions,

I just whipped out my calculator and punched a few buttons. Indeed, Japan appears to be a minus number total.
