Let Japan do all the military defense. America can no longer afford to have military bases all over the world. Just don't call when China reclaims the Ryukyu chain as historically theirs and stolen by Japan.

The "market" will drive the green conversion. Until technology advances to implement, we are foolish to remove fossil fuel as a source of energy. Any one major volcano eruption that happens causes more CO2 and other gas emissions than man has done in our total history on earth. Think about that!

Covid survival rate is over 99.95% percent without taking any experimental vaccine. Simple choice.

If the vaccine is safe then lift the liability protection from "Big Pharma".

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for modifying its definition of the words “vaccine” and “vaccination” on its website.
Before the change, the definition for “vaccination” read, “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” Now, the word “immunity” has been switched to “protection.”
The term “vaccine” also got a makeover. The CDC’s definition changed from “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease” to the current “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.”
Some people have speculated that the unannounced changes were the CDC’s attempt to hide the fact COVID-19 vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing coronavirus infection. U.S. Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky said in a popular tweet the CDC has “been busy at the Ministry of Truth.”

I will not take any "emergency use" vaccines any longer. The "big Pharma" companies needed the governments to change the definition of what a vaccine does. Prior to covid, a vaccine prevented 100% the infection of a virus. Now, the definition of a vaccine is to prevent severe symptoms of virus. Without changing the definition of a vaccine, the US government could no longer have given "emergency use" authorization of the covid vaccine. Ask yourself a question, with Japan having a very high vaccination rate why are new cases of covid sky rocketing? These new type of dna manipulating vaccines are ruining our bodies natural immunity in my opinion. Look at all the people vaxd and multi-boosted getting the same covid mutant virus multiple times.

I've lived here in Okinawa for 12 years now, and I have yet to watch 1 positive news segment on NHK Okinawa. There are many US military community assist events and charity assistance given to the local community. The media is controlled to present 1 negative narrative about the US presence.

No more shots as it doesn't prevent catching nor spreading of the virus. Wake up people!

Not looking forward to the consumption tax rate going up from 10% to 12% to pay for this folly of an event. Luckily, the IOC will still receive it's $350 million USD television rights payment for the Olympics taking place and sharing nothing with Japan to offset the costs.

A better idea than covid passports is a implanted microchip. No need to carry anything with you as it is always there and can be updated to carry emergency information, passport information, medical history, and any restrictions, All authorizations seamlessly carried and controlled by the governmental authorities.

Why more tax money for this boondoggle? Without foreign visitors the Japanese tax payer will foot the bill for the Olympics. CANCEL the Olympics or IOC pay for the cost!
The organizing committee has budgeted income of $800 million from ticket sales. That shortfall will have to be made up by Japanese government entities.
