Hopefully SBI would reverse some of the stupid decisions shinsei made like disabling keycard access from the international plus system. The only bank to my knowledge that makes its customers access to their funds abroad impossible.

Posted in: Vaccines, masks? Japan puzzling over sudden virus success See in context

never been in a public toilet at the same time as a native man I guess.

I see these same grubs are back to normal. No hand washing, or even an attempt to pretend. Also I've seen these grubs either 1) Removing their mask to sneeze 2) Fleming up in public 3) Spitting in the street 4) all of the above.

So the numbers we're seeing now sure is a mystery.

It's also a mystery why we still have to self isolate on arrival if returning residents are fully vaccinated.

Posted in: Variety of frozen food vending machines proving a hit amid pandemic See in context

The only in-person interaction that is required in a supermarket is to hand over payment to the cashier.

Some of them don't even do that, and watch you pay - i.e. the customer doing their job.

Regardless, I only see drink machines in my area of Central Tokyo, none of the kind mentioned in the article.
