Posted in: Japan to tighten COVID border controls for travelers from China See in context

I don't believe ANY test for travel China gives...first thier vaccine probably does not work...how many are flying with phony health cards? Yesterday a flight from china to korea....172 passengers,,,131 tested positive UPON arrival....71%......look out Japan...same coming your way....

Find it odd, Japan with all their mask wearing outside...daily cases amount to MORE than the entire USA per day of late, and in USA about 99% do not wear a mask.....Glad Japan is OPEN finally...took long enough..

I live in USA..city of about 120,000 persons...I would say 99.99999% do not wear a mask...inside or outside..

This is accross the USA now...ONLY in hospitals/nursing homes are masks really worn...IF vaccinated, boosted...you are as safe as one can be....this mask wearing outside is just not warranted in my opinion..inside, I guess ..well Japanese think so....lets stay well in any case...above is just a fact..

So funny....The PGA golf tourney was held in Japan this past weekend..Saw it on TV...95% of spectators were wearing masks..this is just to me, silly...outside on a golf course, open air, wind blowing...wearing masks...Maybe they work outside, maybe they dont....here in USA, hard to find anyone wearing one outside or inside at all......I personally think outside it not necesssary....Unless someone with covid is blowing air into your face, not going to catch it......Just me..

Poster saying borders should be closed...Silly...ALL of Japan's covid cases the past months are from WITHIN the country...not from anyone entering......So funny, PGA golf tourney in Japan this past weekend...all spectators wearing masks...it is ridiculous....outside in open area's having to wear mask...I don't get this at all..

Here in the U.S. Outside I "rarely" see anyone at all wearing a mask...almost never...Inside stores, I might see 3 or 4, persons who may be older age or have existsting conditions..otherwise NO ONE wears masks...I have my 2 shots and 2 boosters...I am not afraid....wearing outside in Japan I think ,,the time has COME..take them off..

Posted in: Japan weighs plan for ban on hotel guests without masks: report See in context

This is ridulous...The masks are not working...Japan has had more covid cases per day in the last several weeks, wearing masks, than all of the USA not wearing masks...I thought authorities are planning end of OCT to completely open up...visa free arrivals reinstated, NO covid test,,NO mandatory tour groups, NO having to buy tickets thru agent,,,,so ok...open it all up and lets keep mask on...I can then visit..

Posted in: It’s time to talk about no-mask anxiety See in context

Here in the USA, anyway where I live...99% wear no mask at all...it IS required to enter a hospital or nursing home otherwise no one has one on....With Japan and other countries with high covid counts daily wearing the mask,,,I assume it does help the spread of covid, but,,just saying...Japan has more covid cases daily in the past 3 weeks than the entire USA did....and we don't wear masks...soooo UP TO YOU...

Japan MUST return to the VISA FREE STATUS for 90 days stay..ALL other major countries HAVE...for those countries for which it is authorized...This madness of applying to an embassy for a visa is time consuming and restrictive...BACK TO VISA FREE TRAVEL....Japan is so far behind everyone else..

Such a backward country is Japan...Their citizens for example can travel to USA freely,,NO visa,,NO covid test, NO tour groups,,NO NOTHING...but for Me, an American,,Must obtain VISA as visa free was cancelled...I am NOT going to buy a ticket thru tour company and hotel arrangements....I want MY way, My freedom...So open up ..ONE of the last countries with such restrictions.....SAD..

I do hope SOON, the Gov't will cease requiring people wanting to visit Japan as tourist, to re-instate the VISA WAIVER 90 days stay so many can visit Japan...People will not nor can visit Japan having to go to an embassy to get a visa for entry. OPEN UP almost all major countries have..

"FULLY VACCINATED",,,,,,SHOULD BE: NO covid pcr test required UPON OR AFTER ARRIVAL...Test to board I have no problem with....NO mandatory Insurance coverage.....NO quarantine in Hotel upon arrival....Thailand has NO restrictions whatsoever for vaccinated travelers...Korea has only Covid test for boarding flight and test upon arrival in Korea...IT IS TIME TO OPEN UP....99% I assume of all the current HIGH daily covid cases are spreading Japanese to Japanese, within the country,,NOT any incoming tourists...So I hope Japan will totally open up soon so many persons wanting to visit CAN..Thank you

Posted in: Japan to trial small group tours from 4 countries See in context

Japan will be the LAST asian country to fully open...the idea of compulsory Medical insurance, is one turn-off, you would NOT be free to tour anyplace you wanted, ONLY where the tour company/Gov has set for you..MORE important,,a Japanese National can travel to the USA and all they need to do is get a PCR test 48 hours prior to departure,,NOTHING ELSE..go in USA and go where you damn please...What a backward country Japan is....get with the program and open up..
