Posted in: New Zealand announces changes to agricultural emissions scheme to help farmers See in context

How typical, farmers are on a god level tier here in NZ. They claim poverty during a drought or extreme flooding but still manage to take the entire family to Disneyland or the Gold Coast every school holidays.

Good grief....I only remember Covid existed when I visit this site. Japan and their media refuse to let it go.

Scotland. I have just spent two month's there. There was zero mention of it when passing through the airport, masks are a thing of the past, I didn't hear or see any mention of Covid case numbers in the news. I am starting to wonder if any of you have actually travelled abroad recently....the world certainly has moved on and Japan has a lot of catching up to do.

More evidence Japan is multiple steps behind the rest of the word in terms of border reopening.

Case number's in an Omicron world are irrelevant. The Japanese media and certain sectors of society seem obsessed with them. Reminds me of what little old New Zealand was like a few months ago, everyone on the edge of their chair hanging out for the 1pm case number update. It's over Japan, move on like the rest of the world!

Posted in: Japan to increase entry cap on arrivals to 50,000 from Sept 7 See in context


You beat me to it! This is exactly what I was thinking of doing every since this rumored unguided tour package thing got leaked. They'll more be used as a go between in the case you get the Vid and register your positive with the authorites. If a full reopening isn't happening by mid December I'm definitely getting crafty with a 'planned itinerary' in order to do my own thing.

Good grief....absolutely archaic. Stop mentioning the other G7 countries when you are miles behind them in terms of border restrictions.

Give it up Japan...it's over. Kushida-san knows this but now the hard part begins of convincing the terrified Japanese population that it's time to move on.

Why is Japan 2,3,4 steps behind the rest of the world in terms of border reopening? Ths Kushida fellow keeps on saying he wants to align the border with the rest of the G7 but things are moving at a glacial pace.

Kushida continually says he wants to align border restrictions with other G7 nations. So when is this going to happen? Every G7 nation has been open for months. I thought New Zealand's border measures were fascial but Japan's are next level stupid at the moment.

100% some crafty techniques being used to get into Japan for 'business' reasons. There are a few automotive Youtubers I follow who got in for 'business' reasons but in reality they needed 2 weeks of content. Some guy reckoned it took 3 months and help from people on the inside to get his business visa.
