Lock them up and then deport them. This country doesn't need cheaters or fraudsters.

Missing as they should, enough of the love for them already.

91 y.o. and driving? What's wrong with grandpas in this country? After this, if I were the old guy I would be researching about me getting to Belgium or Switzerland and do the right thing.

Regrettable the Koreans can get over it after countless apologies and reparations being paid by Japan. Once the borders in Europe open up again, I feel like going there and put a flag of imperial Japan on the lap of the statue just to trigger some Koreans.

Posted in: How can public health officials around the world help COVID-weary people, who are are sick and tired of being told to wear masks, keep their business closed and keep their distance from others, to maintain their guard against the coronavirus? See in context

Perhaps by stop bothering us, treating us like babies and accepting that some of us are willing to take risks in a world where viruses, bacteria and other threats have always existed.

Wow! I love this country and I still think it's the best in the world, but it's justice system is a joke, he should've gotten the rope+trapdoor combo. Child killers deserve no mercy!

Tell all the doomsayers and the mask police: "See? You didn't die, now take off that thing of your face!"

In the end he is getting rewarded, life in a Japanese prision is 100 times better than being free in a Latin American country, let alone a jail in that region.

He should've ridden the trapdoor swing at the detention centre.

Posted in: 72% of children in Japan feel stress over coronavirus pandemic: poll See in context

It also depends on where you live, I live in a fairly rural area, my kids' school only have about 100 kids in total and the restrictions are minimal. They only have to wear a mask during certain times, they are allowed to play together, no social distance enforced or other nonsense rules. They seem quite happy. Going to school in the city must be hell right now, poor children.

You don't say? They are are protesting your stupid rules!

Well then airlines should prepare to lose more money as they make traveling more inconvenient, I wouldn't mind never traveling outside of Japan again, this is the best country in the world, in my opinion.

Great sight, people enjoying themselves. I still don't know why some people buy into the fear, but hopefully more and more people realise this was nothing but a scam. Hopefully masks are the next thing to go away, definitely what I personally hate the most about this plandemic.

Posted in: Japan eases virus restrictions to allow more people at sports, movie venues See in context

@serendipitous1

But those people would have worn masks to and from the restaurant. Guaranteed. Can't exactly wear one while eating or drinking. Masks have certainly helped Japan keep numbers extremely low.

Not my party at least and we were at least 12 people, not sure about other patrons, though. My opinion is that the numbers of Japan are quite low due to superior hygienic habits, shoes off the house, regular exposure to diverse germs due to pop density and night ofuro.

Great! The doomsayers and mask police will be enraged from the news. Yesterday, I went dining out with the fam a large group of friends, packed restaurant and no masks in sight, what a delight to see. Glad to see people stop paying attention to the fearmongering, and now even j-gov is supporting larger gatherings.

Posted in: Japanese airline removes passenger refusing to wear face mask See in context

Paranoia is out of control, I honestly do not understand the irrational fear this virus causes, there are other viruses and illnesses way more dangerous and people don't care about them.

That said, I despise masks with all my heart, I refuse to wear them, therefore I avoid places where the mask thing is more than a mere 'onegai', that includes airplanes, that guy could've just driven to his destination and avoided the hassle, although I admire his courage to stand against this nonsense, airlines are private businesses and can set up any rules they want, so if you really want/need to fly just suck it up and comply.

Posted in: People should not make a unilateral decision and shut out such ‘non-maskers,’ while those who refuse to wear a mask should not be so close-minded and adamant about it. Both sides should meet halfway to avoid trouble in the pandemic. See in context

Mask lovers tend to attack us non-wearers more than the other way around, I honestly respect the decision of people wearing masks but when insults and saltiness starts that's when we have a problem (like if it was that hard to stay away from us), I have said it countless of times if you're at risk or fearful don't go out. That said even if you're like me and hate masks don't be a baby and comply in places where it is compulsory to wear one if you really have to be at such place. I personally avoid public transport, traveling and refuse to patronize venues where it is required.

Posted in: Foreigners in Japan becoming target of discrimination due to virus See in context

Corona or not corona, it is amazing how most foreigners in Japan love to play the victim card, instead of being grateful to be able to be in this beautiful country! Being of foreign origin has opened me many doors in this country, never have I ever been discriminated about it, on the contrary most people are genuinely curious about my culture. If you know the lingo and respect local customs being a foreigner here can actually be advantageous.

Posted in: Again, no female contenders in Japan's leadership race See in context

What seems to be the problem? As long as they pick someone who is up to the challenge, why would someone care if it's a man, a woman or a horse?

Also many people forget that in this country most women prefer to stay home and take care of their family. Less women working equals less women in positions of political power.

Posted in: Life prison term to be finalized for Peruvian man for killing 6 See in context

Put him down like the beast he is. Killing or abusing children is unforgivable. Although, I wouldn't mind his life sentence if his imprisonment conditions are the same as a death row inmates, that means little human contact and mental torture.

Posted in: Peach plane diverts to Niigata airport to offload passenger who refused to wear a mask See in context

I hate masks more than anything on this world, therefore I drive wherever I need to go no matter how far. But, I guess if I really had to fly I would comply, in the end they are private entities and can set up any rules they want. He should've checked the regulations before flying. If you hate masks just avoid places that make you wear one, don't act like a baby.

Posted in: Koike says postponed Olympics should be held 'by all means' See in context

What's wrong with that woman? I believe Japan will be okay by then but, the Olympics aren't only about Japan, they are an event that involves most countries around the world. I'm pretty sure most countries would rather spend their money fixing their economy than sending a bunch of rich athletes to a watered down Olympics. I'd say everything should be postponed until 2024
