Just another day in "the greatest country that has ever existed", nothing to see here.
I guess you could say they're going back to normal.

' Cos most of the maskless I see tend to be westerners.
They are probably free thinkers like yours truly, you know people who actually dare question the msm and governments narrative regarding to the Wuhan Virus. The ones I know have gone nuts and I refuse to cope with their fearmongering and need for virtue signaling.
Why are they trying to infect others with their selfishness?
How do you know they have the 'rona? why not just stepping aside or stay home instead of being judgmental‽

What I find surprising is the Japanese who do keep their masks on do not say anything to their colleagues.
That's because it's mostly westerners the ones who like to act as self-appointed mask police or meddle in other people's business

729 cases out of millions of people sevete cases down, I see no problem or cause for alarm.

The utmost anti-virus step would be cancelling their ridiculous, expensive, cheerless, masked games no one cares about but them and that French lad from the IOC who sometimes comes to Japan!

Whatever! We've got enough of the fearmongering already, we don't see the piles of bodies on the street some were predicting, in fact I just went to my local hospital to treat an injury and the place was emptier than usual . Nothing will prevent me and my fam from traveling again this Golden Week!

I hate masks from the bottom of my heart but if a business owner/manager of a premise I must be at verbally requests me to wear one, I immediately comply no questions asked. This man child should be locked up until we're done with this nonsense if that ever happen.

It would be a crime not to be outdoors with this wonderful weather. Glad to see Japanese people being rational and not freaking out about the scamdemic.

While I don't condone the actions of the pitiful man-child, this will continue to happen if you keep forcing people to do what they hate.

Good for her!
Unfortunately she won't be able to compete as the masked, cheerless games will be cancelled.
-3 ( +0 / -3 )
No, I have not changed at all. I'm as careless as I was a year ago. Masks only when verbally required by private businesses I really have to be at, zero social distance and heaps of gatherings and domestic travel with friends and family. I have always washed my hands a lot, regardless of corona.

Teaching gender issues at nursery schools and kindies? Leave that kind of nonsense to the west, we don't need the radical left agenda here in Japan.
If a boy brings a dress, dresses like a girl or acts like one, of course he will be called out and laughed off, not out of malice but because most young kids are like that.

What does "designate the prefecture's capital as an area that needs stronger anti-virus measures" even mean? If it is not a SoE does it mean it is okay to ignore it just a bit more than a full on SoE? What a bunch of nonsense.

Apologizing for having a party. The world has certainly gone mad.

If those are our last words too, so be it. We do not fear death, it is a natural part of life that will keep occurring regardless the existence of the coronavirus. I'd rather die than live without freedom or in fear.

I arrived today in Okinawa with the fam and a group of friends. Glad to see the plane, airport and tourist places packed, all helping the local the local economy. Numbers of infected people do not matter to most people anymore, life must go on.

Yet another reason not to take that rushed thing.
The more concerning news is that it took over a month to do 580,000 vaccinations.
Even if the vaccines were available to all, Japanese people aren't dumb, I doubt most would take it. Apart from 1 person, all the Japanese people I know are skeptical of the jab and would not take it immediately. Including people in the medical community. Good for them.

Yet another reason not to go to that mess of a place.

What about educating the young about the barbarian pre-colonial Korea and the things they used to do overt there as well? Like fathers impregnating their daughters to prove their fertility to potential bachelors.
What about teaching them about how Japan helped the people of Chosen to become a modern society and sowed the seed for them to become a technologically advanced nation and how the Japanese government helped to preserve hangul (seen at that time as the writing system of the lower classes) when most locals would rather use Hanja or Japanese.
I guess playing the victim card pays off better these days.

Life sentence? That scumbag deserves the rope after a few years in solitary, no less.

No, I don't agree. They should be cancelled entirely. Why do they insist on having the masked, joyless games? There is nothing to celebrate.

police efforts to prevent alcohol consumption on the beach.
The land of the free? What a joke. You can't even crack open a beer in public without getting arrested. So lucky to be in Japan.

No need to fix what's not broken. I won't be taking the shot.
No international travel, no problem.

Take your time, there's no rush. More than half of the population don't even want it anyway.

People don't care anymore, good for them. This pandemic is not as bad as they want us to believe specially here in Japan.

16 years?! He should've been given the rope.

Whatever, I almost never wear mask anyway. And if I must be at a place where the request to wear one is a more than a mere onegai, I wear them either under the nose or on the chin.
