I commented a few days ago, Japanese Government and the media outlets supporting them will start flooding media with non-news to make it look like everything is awesome.
Japan's COVID-19 vaccination rollout picks up steam
No facts, no data but a sensational headline.

Is this really a democracy ? Call in for a snap election at a time that suits the ruling party.

According to Kato, companies and universities will be responsible for securing medical personnel to administer the vaccinations.
The Government isn’t and won’t be held accountable for slow inoculation. The Government is just finding ways to find more scapegoats for their incompetence, these oyajis are so pathetic.

So countries with low positive rate and infection number than Japan are on red list splitting families, in some cases families with kids who need to get back to continue treatment for serious life threatening illness are not eligible for an exemption under special circumstances but people related to Olympics do.
I am really happy that the way Japan handled covid and treated hard working, tax paying foreigners with xenophobic attitude without any shame has made it an easy decision to leave Japan for good.

Every drop counts so it’s good that we are getting more opportunities to get vaccinated but in my honest opinion, all the “positive” news about covid vaccination in Japan is pathetic attempt by the J Gov to save face.
The media outlets will be bombarded with non news (by repeating the same thing over and over) to create a false sense of serious action by the government.

I still cannot understand the maths.
Mass vaccination centers in Osaka and Tokyo can vaccinate 15,000 people a day but the total number of slots available are 49,000 and 25,000.
so they took reservations for less than 5 days of capacity in Tokyo and 5 days in Osaka?

Perhaps they need to plan it now because these “teens” will be in their 70s when they get their turn on vaccine.

I find Tokyo’s female Governor’s comment to be more insulting yet very true representation of the mindset of Japanese political elite, which is all about projection of a fake progressive country without actually changing a thing. I was hoping that as a rare female powerful politician she may comment on the underlying problem and not only about the perception of Japan overseas.
"When we are talking about what we deliver from Tokyo, or from Japan, we shouldn't be sending a negative message,"

With experience in the software and hardware industry, I can say we will see a lot more glitches in coming days across multiple companies. Japanese companies suddenly have came to a conclusion that hiring from India is a magic bullet. But unlike other countries who hire top quality talent across the globe including India and pay them fairly the only focus Japanese companies has, is to hire cheap talent, put them under a Japanese manager who has no idea on how to communicate internationally, and the only motivation is shouting banzai banzai banzai.

RIP the poor woman who lost her life due to stupidity and ego contest of the religious fanatics and a political animal.
French President turned a lone wolf attack by a teen into battle of religions, he had no connection to any known terrorist organization and there was no proof that it was a coordinated effort by a religious cult, yet President Macron and French authorities decided to use this opportunity to suppress a minority even further, isn’t this similar to what Jews faced in Europe?
Politicians usually are very good at defusing the situation but somehow he decided to escalate it. I hope that the sense will prevail on both side and Muslim clerics and figures of authority will speak up because in the battles of rich and powerful only the poor lose

When it comes to kids, trust no one is the best policy.
Also, it is really important to talk to kids about their day at school.
These monsters come in all sizes and ages, so it’s alright to be suspicious.

With this rate India will surpass US in 4 weeks, this doesn’t just impact India but as a country with largest no of immigrants living in almost every country of the world will effect the entire world one way or another, if the world forces a strict entry ban on Indian immigrants they have a HR issue, if they don’t they might let corona spread.
I hope it gets under control

For decades, the conservative LDP was dominated by factions whose bosses backed rival candidates in multi-member constituencies, collected and handed out campaign funds, and used their clout to launch runs at the premiership.
isn’t this how the mafia/yakuza operates ?

Regardless of my disliking about his government and its policies I wish him a speedy recovery and good health.

Having driven extensively in Japan. I would say the Japanese truck drivers are far better than the pedestrians and bicycle kamikazes here.
But we don’t know what really happened, if the driver was really on phone or if the lady with kid was trying to cross the intersection in a hurry. Hope they get well soon.

"As much as possible, kiss only with your partner, and avoid deep kissing," Iwamuro told a news conference, outlining what he described as "kiss etiquette".

Bureaucrats as usual first creating a problem by utilizing the ideas of their bright minds and trying to solve it by adding more regulations and workarounds. Pretty much similar to the plan of having Olympics in Summer.

This is a news I keep reading over and over again which makes me wonder why these buildings do not have safety bars or something similar to avoid these incidents.
Does Japan has no laws to regulate windows design in buildings ?

Contacted by Reuters, the National Police Agency said it could not confirm the facts before receiving questions by fax.
