Posted in: Japan to impose 10-day quarantine on travelers from India, 5 other countries See in context

It's sad to see the whole world go crazy. I thought the world would be able to work out a standard set of protocols that every country follows.

Anyways, different treatment of foreigners vs. Japanese citizens is not good. The virus does not care if you are nihonjin or not. Anyone who is a resident of Japan or has a good reason to visit Japan should be allowed to come and follow the exact same protocols for quarantine that Japanese citizens do.

Japan should stay out of this, I believe very few people here understand this conflict. It is sad to see the world we live in, where the world allows the oppressor to do whatever they like with advanced weaponry and does not allow the oppressee to even shout back. This is our so called developed and civilized world.

I strongly believe that Japan has the capability and it should be one of the largest producer of COVID vaccines, but unfortunately we are having shortages of syringes to administer injects. This is extremely disappointing. Not sure why this is so low on Govt agenda.

Shocked to see that Japan is 120. I thought it would be even lower than that.

A truly tragic event. This event has shaped the nation for many years to come. I hope we never forget this event and always prepare and plan for such disasters even if it means cutting back on some other infrastructure.

Posted in: COVID-19 inoculations in Japan off to snail pace start due to vaccine, syringe shortages See in context

Shortages of syringes, that is crazy. I hope they are doing more vaccinations per day than they were doing testing. Being an advanced industrial nation, this is beyond my understanding.

The whole world looks like this anyways. Freedom of speech/clothing/expression should be given to everyone as long as that does not affect anyone else emotionally or physically.

The amount of testing and the cost of getting tested privately in Japan is extremely disappointing.

Posted in: 2-year-old girl dies after being left in car for 7 hours See in context

Not sure why car companies have not stepped up to solve this issue with technology, this kind of incidents are common occurrences and something as simple as temperature/humidity sensor, motion sensor would go a long way.

Posted in: Ghosn's escape prompts talk of more curbs in Japan's strict justice system See in context

I feel this will not change anything in Japan and probably won't roll any heads here too. Changing something is like accepting some part of the blame. Instead, why not blame everything on foreigners and foreign companies. Saves a lot of trouble.

Posted in: Japan's new working visa acquired by only 219 foreigners in first 6 months See in context

With the requirement and conditions for the Visa I did not expect anyone will apply. So 219 is a huge success.

Next solution would be to increase the sales tax to 15%. We are still waiting for addressing the root cause of problems not treating the symptoms.

Posted in: Gov't to urge firms to help employees undergoing fertility treatment See in context

What does the Japanese Govt do: urge, suggest, and recommend. I seldom see a real action on the part of the Govt. There are so many real problems that needs real actions.

Japan needs to stop presenting tourism as if they are doing a favor to the outside world by letting them visit Japan.

Posted in: More details emerge over Kawasaki stabbing rampage, killer See in context

Very sad story. With guns you can bring in new laws, but with knives, what should be the best course of action. Probably better identification mechanism and facilities for mentally ill seems to be the only solution. I hope such kind of thing never happens again.
