Posted in: 72% of survey respondents say border controls reason for not visiting Japan See in context

Japanese citizens should be affected by the same rules of their government when traveling to US and EU. Just group tours and no independent tourist visa.

Instead, they are free to travel everywhere with no restrictions, and this because EU and US understood covid more than 6 months ago, and they are not playing a political games as Kishida is doing.

Looking at comments and articles around the web, you can really see how a bad reputation Japan is building up nowadays, and I think it will take time to improve it again.

Funny to see how you guys are still reporting numbers of infections (that are quite meaningless since the virus has mutated and it's less dangerous vs 2 years ago).

You should concentrate on hospitalizations and serious cases, here in Europe we figured it out 6 months ago...not sure why in Japan is taking so long

Another normal day, basically even less cases we see in Europe/US and who unfortunately has more severe symptoms has other pathologies in the same time

Nothing special to see here

Posted in: Japan eases border restrictions, starts visa procedures for guided tours See in context

Funny how the Japanese government keep seeing foreign tourist as the covid threat, and not their own thousand of Japanese tourists travelling everyday basically everywhere in the world.

For a country I loved with it's beauty and contradictions, keep reading these news makes me feel very sad.

Hope all this government xenophobia vs what is not "japanese" will stop soon

Posted in: Kishida says foreign tourists should follow Japan face mask rules See in context

I mean, I don't really like all this xenophobia around foreigners in Japan. But it should be common sense that when you visit a foreign country, you follow the rules of that country.

Just to add, better to send a memo to our our fellows americans and chinese, you know how they are when you need to follow masks rules....

Before messing up with the entire world, can the US fix the problems that they have in their country first? And who put in charge the US to decide for other countries before diplomacy?

Really, these constant threaten are making the global situation much worst.

Kishida just announced some news on reopening the country in June. I think it make sense since japanese tourists are traveling basically everywhere without any restriction

@El Rata

Did you even read the article?

Instead of studying in Japan, 46.4 percent of the respondents switched to studying in a different country. Among those who made such a change, around 27 percent picked South Korea, the survey showed.

@Johansawada

if that hurts your mental health then i'm sorry to say you are definitely not suitable to live in Japan... you've got to be mentally strong to live here as a foreigner....

lol they even have to enter the country, at least give them a chance to try and learn what it means to live as a foreigner in Japan

Japanese trials are quite a joke, you are guilty by principle even before the process starts. If you are foreigner, it's even worst, there are some many scary stories out there

I say KEEP them borders closed until we know more about our New Arrival Mr. Omicron.

What about keep the borders closed forever? or every time a new variant will be discovered? That would help dramatically lol

Posted in: Singapore expands quarantine-free travel for vaccinated passengers See in context

Seems like a reasonable method. Slightly surprised that Japan isn't included with most of that population vaccinated now

Reciprocity is key. If Japan continues to ban every county to enter, they should expect the same arrangement.

They should open border to vaccinated and tested people, not sure why is the reason they are still closed...

Posted in: Tokyo reports 77 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 611 See in context

Encouraging numbers! Let's hope for the borders to be open soon for student and working visa.

Or at least would be great to receive some timelines from the government, but I doubt it' a priority right now..
