So many of these types of incidents stem from mental health issues. Here’s to hoping that Japan can start brining mental wellness to the forefront of its focus. Like most things in Japan, in order to kick start this, the companies need to step up and do their part. Make counseling available, provide safe environments, make it less taboo. Not justifying his actions in anyway, but punishing these people is a bandaid, not a solution.

Saying the quiet part out loud I see. Of course there’s a cost, but who cares as long as it’s one he doesn’t have to bear.

@Goodlucktoyou

was that cost because you had a fever and so the total was supplemented? I need to travel and everywhere I look, pcr tests are ¥30,000 and up…

Posted in: Pfizer and BioNTech to donate vaccines for Olympic athletes See in context

So NOW it’s ok to vaccinate the athletes before the elderly population because the vaccines are donated by Pfizer. What a joke. The number of vaccines were never the issue, but any excuse for the government to hide behind is a valid excuse.

Posted in: COVID-19 vaccination for those under 65 may start in July: minister See in context

I don’t understand how it would start in July unless they don’t care about vaccinating the elderly population properly prior to that. At the pace they’re going, they would need to wait until winter to open it up to the general population. Can you say bottleneck?

Focus on the health and well-being of your country!!! Stop playing the distraction game. No one wants this and yet the govt. still doesn’t listen.

Posted in: ANA to trial IATA travel pass See in context

Dont know which parts of Japan you are but there are many testing private testing sites here in Tokyo that will do the test for people who need it for travel/business/or just piece of mind. I walked past two brand new private testing ones in Akiba alone just last week. If you dont need an official cerificate its cheaper but for official cerificates they charge more, special forms can be done for Hawaii and otjer destinations as well.

Thanks for letting me know. I’m not too far outside of the Tokyo area, so I’ll look into it.

Posted in: ANA to trial IATA travel pass See in context

IATA Travel Pass enables passengers to easily verify whether they meet the COVID-19 testing requirements of their destination

This is great, but what can be done about that fact that Japan refuses to test people unless they’re showing severe symptoms? Kind of a moot point.

...and before anyone asks for sources, I’m speaking from personal experiences.

Posted in: Japan embarks on random and targeted COVID-19 testing, but some experts call for more See in context

@SandBeachHeaven

To hell with random testing. Waste of money and people’s time. I would refuse to be tested if not showing common symptoms for this corona cold virus

here’s the problem that I have, my family and I can’t get on a flight unless we show a negative test from the past three days, airline policy. My ticket that I bought last year is set to expire and because Japan can’t get their act together or figure out who they’re gonna lie to next, in order to save face, people like me are getting shafted.

Posted in: Kono warns of slower pace of COVID vaccine shots for elderly after supply delay See in context

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare said 5,039 people had been inoculated at 68 medical facilities as of Friday.

Lets be clear, the government has NOT inoculated a single person! This vaccine is nowhere near effective until the second jab is administered. so let’s no pull a muscle patting ourselves on the back too hard, you don’t want to overburden the hospitals

Here’s a report from Israel, the country which has COMPLETED the highest percentage of inoculations to date

Looks like they’re trying to justify those unnecessary meetings at the taxpayers’ expense some more...

for one reason or another, like being boycotted cause they’re going to dump contaminated water into the ocean (which was pledged to be fixed before 2020), there will be no Olympics.

@WilliB

You’re right, “common” is a subjective word. For me if these cases happened more than once a week it’d be too common for me. However, you want stats? Almost 2,000 cases were handled by police last year. Those are just the ones where the cops were called.

But let’s not be subjective, those stats make it more than 3/day! is that common enough for you?

The better question is why aren’t you focusing on the part of my comment that proposes a constructive dialogue to help solve the issue at hand?

There’s no question she should get life in prison. The real question is why Are child abuse cases such a common occurrence in Japan and what can be done to stop it?

Like many societal issues, the punishment is a bandaid which hopes to set an example for other possible offenders, but never does. We must treat the cause. How about educating young parents or even high school students who may end up in this situation? Just because they learn about it doesn’t mean they’ll go and do it. The subject shouldn’t be taboo if it’s a reality.

Posted in: 300,000 masks sent to pregnant women may be faulty See in context

This government is cannot be depended on in the least. My wife is pregnant and we haven’t received any masks. I’m not saying that they haven’t sent them, but how long have they had to do a simple rollout? Not to mention that our tax money would be better spent elsewhere.

On a side note, we ordered masks on Ali Express (just in case people are desperate to find some) it took couple weeks to arrive but they’re gonna probably come from China anyway, at least this way they’re clean.
