Posted in: According to many polls, the majority of the Japanese public say they want the Tokyo Olympics to be canceled or postponed again. So why haven't opponents of the Games taken to the streets in large numbers to protest? Is it a cultural thing? See in context
Because most Japanese lack courage, they lost their bravery years ago.

Just give them to whoever wants it, first come first served, it's obvious that a lot of people are in wait-and-see mode.

What a bunch of clowns. By the way, why do they take a socially distanced photo? Aren't they fully vaccinated? What a circus these meetings are.

Suga is right this time (unintentionaly), not only the ROC (Taiwan) is a country but the actual real China, the PRC is the rogue state. Unfortunately, the west has been bought by the CCP and won't acknowledge the fact.

With all those requirements, who in their right mind would like to go to Europe?

The worst part is that this deviant will probably be given a suspended sentence then he will move to a different prefecture, where he'll be able to work at a school again and continue to commit his repulsive acts.

Kazuo Shii, chairman of the Japanese Communist Party, questioned whether staging the games was worth the risk to public health, to which Suga simply replied, "Protecting the lives and safety of the people is my responsibility."
The reply to the question doesn't even make sense. Suga is a decrepit, incompetent little man.

What about just getting random blokes from the street, when they got some spares. Those who are keen on getting the vaccine won't hesitate to take it. Why does the Japanese government always overcomplicate things?

They should be kicked out of the country, 80% of Japan's population is against their presence here.

What a loser, a regular apology and a free order of takoyaki would've been sufficient, no need to humiliate yourself.

My local steakhouse which also happens to sell the best craft beer in town has been duly ignoring the government requests (owner is tired of inconsistent requests and lack of income), so nothing changes for me, as long as they are open I couldn't care less about department stores, cinemas or theme parks.

I'm not really fond of dogs (I'm more of a cat person) however, you got to admire his skills, I don't think I would be able to walk that many dogs without ending up with a tangling mess.
No mask, and taking up all that space on the pavement, how selfish.
Of course, you have to had the JT mask police not minding their own business coming to comment on an unrelated article.

overstay is not a crime
Japanese law begs to differ, it's a crime and violators should be detained and subsequently deported.

Four foreigners have sued the Osaka immigration bureau over the pain they suffered in 2018 for being locked up with 13 other detainees in a small room
What did the expect? A 5-star hotel? They are breaking the law, the place for people who do not follow the rules isn't meant to be comfortable.
demanding some 3 million yen
Of course, they need some 'gibs' for their 'pain and suffering'
What about, not breaking the law and thus avoiding such a horrible situation in the first place?

That's a good thing. Who in their right would like to have children under the living hell of paranoia we're currently experiencing.

Threatening public servants in your host country for following the rules (unlike the deceased), what a shame. Yet, most people here will defend those 'peaceful poor immigrants from the third world'.

Useless SoE., does it really make a difference? It is obvious that people don't care anymore. Apart from carrying their face nappy everywhere (which isn't even compulsory by law), nothing has changed, everyone is living their lives a usual.

Why is this even an olympic sport? Sounds more like a hobby to me.

While the wording itself is regrettable, I don't believe there's a malicious intent in their comments, that said this just comes out to show how the average Japanese person without exposure to the outside world are just simply dumb and should be given pity.

So why approving it, if it won't be used and people won't want it. This government is set up all dumb.
Not that I would take any of those experimental things right now, but if I eventually get it, it won't be the AZeneca one.

AstraZeneca? The one that had its use stopped in Europe due to blood clots? No thanks.

Cheers! Everyone who's not afraid should do the same, not everyday you encounter a business that's willing to stand against this nonsense that's driving average people into poverty.

Cool, I might just hop on the Shinkansen and visit the place on the weekend. I will be proud to support a business that does not fall for the fearmongering and cares about their employees livelihoods.

Good for Toyota and reducing the cost of labor, I just hope they don't plan to send Japanese executives over there, they'll be kidnapped for sure.

Even hardened criminals in prison in civilized countries get medical attention if they are ill. And medical care in this case was NOT 'delayed', as you out it. It was practically non-existent.
Yet again, the point is she should've avoided the detention centre altogether by leaving or renewing her visa.
It is well known that conditions in Japanese detention centres or jails are not the best, why putting yourself in one?
The justice system here is a joke and that's why most Japanese people avoid having to deal with the police (i.e. not reporting certain crimes or committing crimes) and that should go double for foreign nationals.

Waiting for the 'mental illness' apologists to come and defend this monster. I hope she gets the injection!

Err, how about giving her some medical attention instead of, once again, leaving her to rot in prison? You're not listening, are you?
How about following the rules of your host country to avoid imprisonment and delayed medical care?
