Posted in: Unseasonal flu surges across Japan See in context

I can understand people against vaccinations since everyone has different response and immunity, but what’s with mask- haters? Did you buy them the masks? Japanese people wore mask during flu seasons way before Covid. Whether it’s vaccination or mask wearing, everyone has their own right to follow the due diligence as they deem as necessary.

Posted in: Updated COVID vaccine targeting Omicron subvariant rolls out in Japan See in context

Why would we rely on a regional paper from Tampa Bay versus the CDC government website? Not only by individual states but also locally the vaccination release and supply varies in the states. Starting from this vaccination, it costs around $120-130 without insurance, so it really depends on who needs it and is properly eligible.

Not true that this shot is not recommended for anyone under 65. Absolutely false information.

Can someone explain the difference of the “concept” of Han between the Chinese and Korean? It was a Chinese dynasty that assimilated its culture to Korea from my understanding. How is this relevant this topic in discussion?

I take in part of that. Obviously it’s not a go to place to grocery shop in bulks but it’s convenient to just grab and go.

Absolutely concur with the message!

If you must, stop and sideline to do whatever you have to with the phone.

Tired of people starring down, walking and bumping into each other.

Not sure if they’re back in business in full but Hato bus has nicely planned out packages for fruit picking by seasons. I’ve done blueberries and grapes. They were group tours and meal services are planned ahead as well.

Really good time : )

Suspension of visa in itself is a restriction.

Posted in: China suspends visa issuance to Japanese travelers, industry sources say See in context

US citizens already had to apply and pay for a visa to China, not sure about Japanese nationals but whatever the case may be, do people really desire to travel there at this point in time…?

I understand the situation here in Japan isn’t pretty at all but at least they have numbers reported whether they’re accurate to the dots or not. China’s reported situation is … the bare minimum to say the least.

Cry babies. Both Koreans and Japanese don’t care about restrictions against traveling To China, but a lot are concerned about THEM coming here. What’s wrong with a lot of them roaming around without mask and talking like maniacs inside the restaurants?

Exactly what I wanted to say. Keep the family business within and if that’s too difficult to resolve within, at least don’t publish it via netflix and a memoir.

Not so sure how much you know about Tokyo’s situation during the holidays. What did you expect? I reserve all transportations beforehand. It is what it is.

@rocknroll

Agreed.

This is not a discriminatory measure. Sadly but clearly China’s current stance is as is and will likely be put.

Not a day goes by without someone from China flying out not only the country but some quarantine facility. Oh, this is not singular to those in Japan, so stop with the political attack against the Japanese towards China.

But those in Japan, ladies. Please wash your hands at the restrooms. Gross.

@Bronco

Good point. Sinopharm vaccine has as little as 12% protection, As opposed to other countries, I doubt they even have a choice to choose the type of vaccine.

Heard that those with money to do so are migrating to Singapore and elsewhere, (which they‘ve been doing for decades) Surely they are frustrated as we all are.

Let me get this straight, with the travel restrictions eased, why would people get tested? Aren’t we all just circling around with or without symptoms? I face a lot of seriously coughing people on a daily basis. Numbers are meaningless.

No offense taken. I, too , was actually not a regular viewer of her shows. What I meant was that though I wasn’t a regular “viewer,” I knew of her history of career and interviews.

Asiana's been bankrupt for years this acquisition was in place for a while, what a confusing article title. It's not an approval per se, they're negotiating the routes and clearances.
