There has been a glitch in The Matrix, do not panic. The black cat you just saw is just a once off.

Its thanks to majority of the world who got vaccinated that covid is on the way out. The 20%'ers with thier endless excuses not to get jabbed (not talking about the 1% with legitiment issues preventing them from getting it) will still complain for eternity that they were 'right all along'

yes it seems ridiculous but believe it or not, there aren't many international flights into haneda these days (some cold going around...) 99% of flights are domestic and so I'm not sure but I think the percived threat is from internal sources and not your anime doll collectors from afar.

In a country where f o xnews exists (and openly use 'entertainment' as their get out of jail card when found guilty of misinformation) Where a significant portion of the population belives in consipricacies, you have perfect breeding ground for people like trump to prosper.

If ever you want evidence of Japan being a 'democratic' country, look no further. For 3 days around the 'event' Tokyo will be on 'high-alert' and even airspace is retricted - the cost of all that security theatre and beurcracy will be 100's millions of yen.

The big Tech Giants have offices in Japan, so what does it mean to be registered?
It means to pay certain 'fees' and 'duties' which include, but not limted to, taking bureaucrats out in Ginza several times per month.

Money printing under Biden? In 2020 alone , almost 20% of all $ in circulation ($3.38 trillion) was printed under the leadership of that guy.

A certain large 'news' network in USA was brought to court over it's blatant misinformation and it's get-out clause was to officially call itself an 'entertainment' network. All so-called news sites or channels are mouthpieces for very polarising 'sides' of a political coin. And every topic is politcalised regardless and so here we are.

This sad event happens several times every year. So messed up. It seems accepted just like brake / accel machigai that ends up killing a couple of innocent kids several times a year too. What a society when such things are just shrugged off.

The one and only time such draconian measures made sense was between November and January 2019, but instead they chose to cover things up during those months until it was all too late. And the rest, as they say, is history, but in this case we all continue to pay the price. Meanwhile in China where they did nothing during the genesis of the pandemic, now they lockdown thier people like animals for months while pinning the blame on letters from Canada or clothes from SK? What a complete....

When you test everyone, you get your positive cases, even this far along it's crazy and C19 wont be eradicated anytime soon. Vaccinated or not makes no difference unless you are 65+ or immuno-comprimised. This is the fact. There are potions for those that want them, we need to get on with life again for crying out loud. The rest of the world has moved on, Japan seems intent on staying firmly in 2020 for the foreseeable future.

The US are very close to hitting 1,000,000 covid related fatalities. China is by no means perfect but it's a shame the US choose to use this situation for political theatrics.

I wonder do media companies get kickbacks from lawyers, it's the perfect feedback loop.

They covered up the initial alarm sounded by a brave Doctor (pls search it, if written the post would probably be removed) in October 2019.They did nothing to stop domestic or international travel in the first critcal weeks/months of the outbreak. They locked Wuhan down and some other provinces. It worked because, as we now know, the original covid wasn't as contagious. Now with Omicron the dynamics have changed and they are swimming up river with no paddle and inside paper boats named 'Sinopharm'. This isn't going to go well, basically.

Gotta put a halt to Golden Week for the 3rd time. Any way to make the 'numbers' look bad will be leveraged and you will comply with all the quasi-things.

Appears no rush for them. Maybe 2023, otherwise 2024, otherwise.... can kicking will continue.

It's much slower overall downtrend than for Delta, ~50k avg per day 1 month ago almost plateu here ~40k so will be interesting if reversing trend in next week or two. More positively though is the death rate is faster decline, ~60 per day avg for whole country, down from ~200 per day 1 month ago.

This story sums up japan culture so well. All about meaningless rules made up by people without any meaning to their life. Just 'work' for the sake of working - hence neverending redtape and waste.

Sorry, but this is taking the p.... I read reports that the 3rd shot would be good for several months even a year but then this malarky? We just have the 3rd and the 4th needed few months later? Got worsening side effects after each dose and am not getting any more.

Incredible engineering / tech. After previous derailments happened during recent very strong earthquakes, enhancments were made to the rails themselves and to the train wheels (this section was updated) but even with these new measures this one train did derail but most importantly it has already stopped thanks to the tried and proven automatic detection systems in place. The shaking was unbelievable, there is a youtube video from a passanger inside the train and it is basacilly as if a truck has hit them. No-one in the train car shouted or panicked even though it was dark and they were being pummelled by the power of the earthquake. Amazing.

Dinosaurs being... dinosaurs. Unable to operate a remote control, nevermind anything as complex as video conferencing 'system' With the majority of them being asleep most of the time anyway, they are an embarrasment to Japan.

'Alleged' but named and their pictures are already published? 3 JP employees of an old JP securites company were found guilty of insider trading few years ago but they were let off because 'they didn't know it was actually insider trading' all swept under the carpet quickly.

At literally the same time, the last remaining airlines that were serving europe to Japan have cancelled their flights (ANA and JAL - they will fly cargo only now) Now only Finnair remains with 3 flights per week - how cruel can you be to dangle some hope in the media yet know this information that means they cannot acutally get here anyway?
