Disgusting, so many people walking around with blinders, lemmings!

Haha, love it. Sadly the average Japanese person has no interest in the stock market so as usual nothing will change. Set their pensions on stock market performance like an American 401k and I bet people start making better voting decisions.

Ridiculous keeping the bars and restaurants restricted. Of course few in Tokyo follow it anyway but rural prefectures mostly did. Who wants to go travel when they still have to close at 9?

Certainly no one is going to come here until quarantine is abolished. Certainly hope Kono understands that and gets rid of it ASAP.

Wow, Japan = Issue a refund... USA = $1,000,000,000 settlement to avoid court

I was thinking exactly the same thing. But some people think those mamacharis make them invencible.

What's this in % BAC? The way they phrase it here is meaningless to me. BAC is a lot more universally understood.
Certinly not 0.88%, think he'd be dead. So guessing 0.088% which isn't even DUI territory in a lot of places. That's only 3-5 drinks for many people.

After the suspect had left the scene, train crew guided passengers to walk along the tracks to a nearby station.
Does the train driver lack a brain here? This wasn't a train accident, why not drive the train to the nearest station? Instead he makes already traumatized people walk on the tracks, absolute moron.

How do they know if someone has been to Kansas or Indiana? LOL! Texas I can see, we have flights from Dallas and Houston... but is anyone stupid enough to walk up to the health counter and say they've been to those other states to get 3 free nights in an APA hotel?

Tragedy, but the mother should be the one arrested for gross negligence and child endangerment. I've seen this a million times, very unlikely the truck driver's fault at all, kids come darting out of nowhere unexpectedly, he was unlucky, wrong place wrong time. Japan needs to place responsibility on the negligent parents.

Absolutely pointless, the citizens of Tokyo have already spoken and said loud and clear they intend to fully ignore it, do you honestly think that Osaka especially, or Chiba, Kanagawa, and Saitama give a flying f&#@?
Only difference, I went to Enoshima today, beach shacks stopped serving alcohol. So, conbini still sells it, order beach shack food to go, get conbini beer, consumer win, save money. Beach shack mega loose, won't be back under same owner next year because last month of season no one will use it.

Would assume Turkey doesn't want them either. They haven't been too keen to take up ISIS types

How about approving J&J too? Supply slows down on what we have, so let's add another possibility?

More places open and selling alcohol this week than last week. People are tired of it and the bars aren't receiving their promised payments to stay closed. Good luck getting much cooperation this time around.

LOL, you can't make this crap up. Not that I've ever been eligible for tax free shopping here but thanks for the warning nonetheless.

At least they are giving us one last weekend to get drunk and be merry. Fortunately I have a flight tomorrow and the lounge will still be serving beer as usual.

Don't know anyone who took AZ that enjoyed their 2-3 days of side effects. Good riddance to them.
Though I do feel bad for the people of Taiwan getting stuck with them, that's hardly a second or third world country. Shame their leaders didn't proactively hedge and order a variety in advance like Japan and other first world countries.

How about referring them to prosecutors for driving like madmen on the sidewalks and blatantly ignoring traffic signals?

Just let people drink in peace. Give us vaccines and stop the nonsense.
4 ( +7 / -3 )
It's extremely easy to find plenty of bars at any given station in Tokyo waving an outstretched middle finger to the "restrictions" and I'm happy to support them with my $$.
This crap has gone on way too long. Give us vaccines fast or let us make our own poor decisions.

Saw a woman once on one of those baby carrying bicycles come inches from being crushed by a dump truck. She completely ignored the guy with the wand telling everyone else to stop and wait while the dump truck was reversing. These women drive like retards on those bikes, that would have been her own fault, and I bet in this Osaka case she either hit or came too close to the pedestrian causing the outrage.

Lol, I hope the investors win. Japanese Nissan execs brought this upon themselves with the farce they created to remove the gaijin at rhe top of the company. It's been a sham from day 1 and I hope this lawsuit hurts them where it counts.

As usual, inconveniencing everyone for their precious Olympics. Still plenty of bars and restaurants ignoring the 'request' and domestic airfare at least should remain cheap. Discounted AirBNB near the beach in Okinawa sounds like a good idea on the weekends.

Think it's pretty clear they aren't going to lift this until after the Olympics. Hope the cancel protests make some headway. It's purely punitive on us just to have their precious Olympics.
