Aichi and specifically Nagoya has to be the least appealing. No significant tourist sights, bad infrastructure for people w/o cars, and the least friendly and cheapest people in all of Japan.

I thought there was more coverage on the internet and in the newspaper for the Paralympics than the actual Olympics. Perhaps I'm biased, but I couldn't care less about the Paralympics. It's the same reason I don't watch high school sports, pro women sports, or learn Japanese from junior high kids.

And Tokyo is just a massive soulless spread of concrete, chain shops, high end shopping with less and less history and cultural attractions by the year.

I'd say the only thing Tokyo beats Seoul in is weather and that's just barely. Seoul is way more energetic, lively, lots of things for young people (not old people like Japan) , cheaper living costs, better transport, and more friendly locals w a better grasp of English.

So ridiculous this belief in UFOs. So these aliens have the tech to be able to travel millions if not tens of millions of light years completely undetected and then somehow are caught on cockpit camera? And again if they had the tech to get here, they'd surely not be interested in anything we have here on our meager little rock. Either that or they would have mined or gathered whatever they were after long ago. Just step back and ponder how much more advanced any alien species would be...We wouldn't even be able to comprehend much of their existence

So only rich people should be allowed to travel? No backpackers allowed. The rich already control everything else, now let's limit travel to the plebeians too.

500 cases out of 130mil people. How many people died? Obon, GW, sakura season, Xmas, etc. Give it up people. This was never an issue for Japan and most Asian nations. So long as you weren't fat or severely compromised medically, this was never more than a flu. I can't wait for.the next great heralding of an outbreak from you overweight pithy Americans. It's not a thing here, give up the ghost and go back.to living your life

Exactly. Everyone can't seem to realize why America was hit so bad in terms of serious cases and deaths. Lots of obese unhealthy people, many being seniors.

Pretty Much how.most Japanese women want it. Keep quiet, dominate their home life while living lives of coffee dates, tennis lessons, English class, bakery visits, and day trips to bitch and moan about their useless husband's. The wool is so fully turned down the men don't even know what love is .

Another disgraCeful act by Indonesia. I've traveled all over the world and it's the one country I'll never return. Beautiful sights but the people and culture was so off putting I was dying to leave after 2 weeks traveling . It's the 4th biggest country in the world yet it's still miserably poor and has contributed nothing to the greater world . Sharia law is horrible, and holds the country back.

DatAss, isn't that the case for anyone having children? It's the most inherently selfish thing people can do. The last thing this world needs is more people. You want to reverse climate change and save the earth? Don't have kids.

Meanwhile still haven't received my Abe ￥ despite applying 2 months ago here in Nagoya during the first spike. Anyone know who to contact/responsible ? City ward, city govt or national?

Same here in Nagoya. Applied over 6 weeks ago and still nothing but sure as hell getting my city tax bills .

Exactly. The police only seem to target men, and younger people. Housewives and older people always seem to get a pass here.

Meanwhile, still haven't received the 100,000 stimulus in ketchy Nagoya. Sure as hell getting my bills on time though.

Manwhile the Chinese have developed the first quantum entangled satellite connection. Such soft 'cultured' wastes of time and energy like this is why Japan continues to fall behind Korea, China, Taiwan, etc. The same goes with singing and dancing to 'teach' English.

I enjoy izakayas but come on; with the beers that come quickly, the surcharge cheapo appetizer, and the small dishes that necessitate many dishes, has anyone ever left an izakaya paying less than 30$? Its not cheap like a night market in SE Asia or quick fry in China or Taiwan.

Full time?? Gimme a break man. You ever been outside the office or house on a weekday? Once they ship the kids off to school at 4 or 5, they have all the time in the world to shop, meet at cafes, parks, restaurants, department stores, have _____ lessons, take day trips, weekend trips....shall I go on....?

How exactly does this help the cause.?? Most Japanese have no idea or concerns for this, most will never meet a black person, let alone discriminate against them. This is just a bad look for black people and the movement in general. Blocking traffic, creating all kinds of noise and disturbances in general. Imagine if Japanese did the same in Harlem protesting Korean comfort women statutes for example. Would that go over well? Me thinks not. Leave Japan and Japanese people out of this and target areas where this is a problem. Bad optics that won't help the cause in Japanese eyes.

Yawn. I feel sad that the young/women in this country would rather spend a ton of their (daddy's/ATMs) money on a fantasy land rather than travel abroad and experience a new culture and country. Such insular thinking doesn't bode well for the future of Japan .

Still waiting for the 10k stimulus application here in ketchy Nagoya.

More than I can remember, almost always while riding a bike. I guess a tall white dude is their mark, never went past a few questions but it's frustrating to the point I'll bike in a different direction when I see them all camped out on major intersections.

Still haven't even received the applications for the first stimulus here in Nagoya. Not the least bit surprised tbh.

I find it interesting how caustic the comments are when a man died. If this was a grandpa killing his infirmed wife or a mother killing her kid there would tens of comments expressing their outrage. Sad state of affairs with misguided beliefs amongst the weebos here.

There was never an outbreak to begin with here. There was never a large cluster to begin with. My point being, everyone kept saying that the deaths and cases were artificially low because there was inadequate testing and once that was corrected we would see the real numbers. Turns out the virus never hit Japan hard at all, irregardless of testing.

We need more testing!! Im glad those head in the sand dolts are no longer on here posting.

Neither. I'll save the money a 2 day trip to either requires and go somewhere in SE Asia.

Noriajohn, haha get real. No way Nagoya would ever cut the rates, perhaps only for those over 60, they get all the discounts here anyway.
