Why some here keep banging the fear/mask narrative? You don’t have any clue. There has been no mask

mandate. People wear masks using their own judgement. Sometimes peer pressure for sure. I am not vaxxed but have never won mask walking outside or jogging. I do wear mask now (not while am jogging) because of kafun… which means this will last until early May. Many probably are having similar issue. We are fine with that. So If you can’t stand masks, don’t wear it but stop whining about others.

many of us here in Japan would still wear mask from time to time depending on the situation. Mask wearing is not mandated here. I have never won it while out in the open and jogging. I would not wear it while working at my desk in the office. So that’s basically the norm for many in Japan. There are cautious folks of course, many of them… but that’s their choice. No one is going to kill them if they take off their masks. So if someone here is waiting for May to drop their masks, it’s just nonsense.

Posted in: Japan to lower COVID-19 to flu status in spring See in context

I have not worn mask working in the office. Not while I am out and about like jogging or to and from station. I do wear masks when in public transportation and at concerts etc..We have entertained guests at home too… Our guests are vaxxed and got COVID at least once. We are not.

Vaccines? Maybe

Masks? Maybe

etc etc…

why do we all fight over all these?

Common sense? Absolutely.

i am still not vaxxed. I have been using masks when I think it is necessary and this had been the case before this pandemic, ie when I was allergic to the environment or when I was sneezing or coughing (which rarely happened. Keep your hands reasonably clean and keep a healthy balanced lifestyle … all these help. I won’t get any vax until am comfortable with it. I was vaxxed for the seasonal flu though. Once every year around mid Nov.

Good. Why change Article 9 just because of additions to your arsenal? Offensive weapon can’t be used for defensive purpose? Great that Japan can better prepare. What good is a country that feels wrong about having arms to defend while having to depend on foreign forces?

I think shows like Mind Your Language would be remade in better picture quality. I have been rewatching this series these days with so much fun.
