I never thought I would live to see the day I concur with bass4funk on any opinion, but I completely agree with the post above. (^(エ)^) Ha-ha-ha! Thank you!
I hope everyone can hope to continue to find common ground with honest and civil folks which they may share disagreements with.
And here's to hoping more and more people in Japan can enjoy and embrace the wonderful taste of Mexican cuisine. Ole!

"Arson and knifings seem to be the weapons of choice in japan."
No worries, Randy Johnson! Future wannabe criminals are home right now trying to perfect their copycat zipguns. It'll take a few weeks, and we'll read about some catastrophic failures, but these weapons will be quite 'fashionable' for at least the next 18 months.

I have just a little bit of medical training and experience but even I know that a loxoprofen patch is much more effective in relieving my localized pain than IV injection or oral administration (pills), and I can slap a patch on anytime without a doctor or nurse.

If Korean society has solved its own domestic animosity toward Americans, I welcome their counsel.

"Goodyear, (...), has recently put its food down on the accelerator"
Is that a typo or a weird mixed metaphor?
Anyway, I doubt the rubber attached to these would last the entire lifetime of the vehicle, as implied in the story.
Moderator: That was a typo. Thanks for spotting it.

This simply means that the idle rich will find their amusement elsewhere.
Now that Japan is open for "business" once again, and your yen goes a long way these days, look forward to many more of these travelers "on business".
Wasn't the rapper Kanye in Tokyo in other day?

It doesn't matter what the numbers are anymore.
Watch the skies. Jumbo passenger planes are constantly overhead now, flying into the major cities in huge numbers.
There are obvious tourists slow-walking while gawking at the sights and trinket shops like they just got here today. (They did.)
Japan is open once again to (rich) travelers!
(This does not include the Diamando Princessu*)

The money will end up being spent on a mascot wearing a big ￥ on its chest who urges citizens to download an app that either doesn't work or sends bizarre inspirational messages at all hours while collecting their personal data to be leaked or stolen.

The "black label" you refer to is simply the universally accepted nomenclature: even Japanese Wikipedia embraces the name [日本脳炎（にほんのうえん、英語: Japanese encephalitis）] .
You may be confusing scientific terminology with your desire to inappropriately cast blame.

I saw Greg Lake (another original founder of King Crimson) in Osaka just a couple years ago, and he has since also died of cancer at aged 69.
It's sad to lose both of these talented men at somewhat early ages.

Posted in: Even if we have enough doses of vaccine, we still need to secure staff and venues. In addition, some people cannot receive booster shots any time soon because their health condition has changed or for reasons related to another vaccine they took. See in context
Marty! It seems we've arrived in 2021!

"deep-cleaning and sanitation" is just theater for the rubes.
Adequate ventilation and reducing the "Three Cs" are the are the only legitimate solutions, but it isn't as satisfying as watching someone scrubbing a wall.

I don't believe "the far left" or anyone else for that matter, have characterized Ivermectin "only as a horse tranquilizer".
I strongly agree with you that everyone should be careful of incorrect, politicized, irresponsible rhetoric.

I celebrated the global unity alone in my small Japanese apartment.
Quietly, and only in my heart, as I was directed.

Yum-yum! These promises taste just as good as they did 20 years ago, but they're just empty sugar.
LDP only cares about imaginary North Korean child abductions, and doesn't give a fig about abused and abducted children here; as well, daycare and parental support are always "tomorrow".

I honestly thought that when vaccines became available in January of this year that the government and health ministries were going to make the maximum effort to get everyone vaccinated before the opening of the Games. I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to show Japan's "victory over the Coronavirus" and give doctors and other healthcare workers front-row seats in the packed stadiums.
But instead we got . . . this.

All PM Suga needed to do was focus on getting as many people vaccinated as possible before the Olympics started.
The empty "vows" and "pledges" while flying-by-the-seat-of-the-pants decision-making doomed him.

Foreigner in Tokyo-san, Over the past year (and a half) I have I often struggled to explain my frustration at the leadership in Japan, and you have summed it up perfectly.
No one wants to be responsible for making a wrong choice, but there is also a responsibility when leaders' procrastination leaves few or no good choices.

So, by "mixing and matching" they actually mean "mixing, NOT matching".
And by "'We have already secured the necessary quantities' for a booster shot rollout," Kono actually means "LOL, I dunno. We'll cook up a plan later."

am very thankful that MacDonald's restaurants replaced their menus with large flashy advertisements hawking only their newest and highest-priced promotions.
Since I can't see the entire menu I've stopped going there.
Stop telling me what I want
