Stop wrapping vegetables in plastic. How rediculous is it to see a banana plastic wrapped.

Posted in: Japan, Thailand to launch new energy initiative for decarbonization See in context

Hagiuda left Japan on Sunday and visited Indonesia and Singapore before arriving in Thailand. He will return to Japan on Friday.

So promoting decarbonisation but using fossil fuels to do it? One rule for them, one rule for the plebs again, who just want to see family before they die.

Posted in: We're not at a point where we can announce a specific date for resuming the campaign. We're in a situation where we should assume that the spread of the coronavirus will proceed rapidly. The basic premise for resuming the tourism campaign is that the infection situation remains calm. See in context

What about the great many Japanese people involved in the business of getting people to holiday abroad? What support are they getting? What is the government doing to support them? SFA it would seem.

Posted in: Japan extends entry ban on non-resident foreigners until end of February: Kishida See in context

The process from getting from Narita Airport to the hotel that is 4 minutes away took 8 hours totaling a 30+ hour travel day.

What a joke. I'm sorry you've been made to suffer this garbage. Shouldn't even be there if you're vaccinated.

Posted in: Quiet reminder See in context

I wish there was a bit of quiet on the trains, instead of endless, pointless, top-volume announcements all the time. People talking, no problem. A machine telling me for the umpteenth time stuff that is obvious to everyone, no thanks.

If there was a mute button for those or a way to cut the speaker cables I'd be interested. Most of the noise does come from the incessant announcements. The guard then just repeats the automated announcements as well.

Posted in: Djokovic's detention becomes political issue in Australia See in context

If you're talking about Djokivic, then Morrison's political diversion has worked. The diversion is to hide the failures of a stale government, a botched vaccination roll out and a PM obsessed with tawdry photo opportunities.

Posted in: 12,000 sign petition to ease Japan's tight entry rules over Omicron See in context

Of all the trivial articles JT posts, why wasn't this petition written about while it was open for signatures? I certainly would have signed, and so would many friends here who are desperate to visit family, are fully vaccinated and taking regular tests.

There should be no quarantine for people who are vaccinated and test negative. We are never getting out of this mess until this changes.
