I don't see any problem with reopening the embassy. Anyways, there isn't seem to be any problem there anymore, you know after seen pictures of locals in Kiev partying, Hollywood do-gooders and politicians visiting and even the Zelensky posing like a super model for Vogue like nothing is happening makes me thing there is nothing to fear about. So go ahead normalise everything.

Japan, China mark 50 years of diplomatic relations
China? Don't you mean the CCP controlled Rogue State known by the fake name of the People's Republic of China (Not of the people, not a Republic, not China) .
Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say that China and Japan haven't had official relations for half a century? Given the real China is the Republic of China whose government is on exile in a Taipei.

You still can pass the illness, you can still get ill, you need boosters every 3 months, you may get myocarditis, some places still force you to comply with the circus. Get it if you want and makes you feel better but I ain't getting that thing myself.

Investing in Japan LOL. I I had kept my liquid assets in Japan during the last year. I would have lost a good chunk of my net worth just to the yen's depreciation against the US dollar.
Never ever invest in this country, use it to make it money (I think it is extremely easy to make Japanese people to part ways with their money and put it in you own pocket) then send your money to offshore accounts.

Then why do people smoke it?
Wanna be cool, fit in a group, they're sheep, became what I described in my previous post, etcetera.
Then why is it prescribed medically?
Tobacco, heroin, cocaine and countless other dangerous substances where once prescribed or at least recommended by physicians until studies showed they were detrimental for human health. I'm sure it will happen to cannabis too, specially the smoked form. Oils may be helpful, though.

The whole world except China and Taiwan have opened up
2 fake statements in one sentence:
1) Japan also remains closed
2)Taiwan is the real China, there's no "China and Taiwan", there is the Republic of China and the rogue usurping state CCP controlled PRC.

Man arrested for stabbing two minors over cannabis trafficking
This is what happens when you deal with that overglorified drug. I never understood the culture surrounding that plant. It makes you feel terrible, makes you stupid, smoking it is bad for your health and places that made it legal stink of that thing. Nothing would make yours truly happier than a universal 40-year mandatory sentence for simple possession.

What's the point of coming to Japan if you have to wear a face mask. Japan's tourism industry and it employees can go broke for all I care. Forced masking on westerners is unacceptable.

I guess hotels that implement that rule hate money.
My family and I since the start of this circus vowed never to stay at a hotel until the mask nonsense is finished. I don't mind paying more for an Airbnb.

Masks will still be a significant deterrent to inbound tourism.
It's not a crime not to wear one. I never wear them, never had a problem. Just ignore the recommendations.

I have never been stopped or questioned by the police despite my obvious foreign looks, that said, that's the way things are done here, just comply and go on your merry way.
No country is perfect and even though racial profiling may be considered discriminatory, here in Japan, it is not.
I was held 2 hours one time for grabbing a creep
Lawyer's Advice: Unless the victim is a loved one, you should never ever get involved in a 'Chikan' case. Even if you posess Japanese citizenship, the police will likely side with the local Yamato. Just turn a blind eye and mind your own business.

Gotta love the American-centric reporting from the Nikkei. Last time I checked Japan had visa-waiver agreements with more than 60 countries.

Call me old-fashioned but unless you have kids of your own, a male should never be a babysitter or take care of other people's kids. That would bring the problem to a stop, a list won't do anything.

I'm not a royalist at all and I think prince Andrew is a disgusting individual, but I find it interesting that all of a sudden the msm cares about free speech and letting people speak their minds when it comes to criticising the the Queen and her family while having censored all those who dare to have a different opinion to the current narrative for a few years already.
