So, the Jgov is always crying about the low birth rate. They try to push for more drinking hoping that will lead to more sex. Aging population becoming a huge problem, but we can't allow HS dating. Sure wish they'd get their heads out of their collective arses.

There aren't enough workers for the menial jobs & Japan doesn't want to open its borders to let workers in besides in dribs & drabs. So, going to be the way going forward unless there is some drastic change in the Jgov & don't see that happening any time soon.

I wish this news feed would let us know leading up to these events. Not just after the fact.

It's a proven scientific fact that masks do not prevent covid-19. Just so ridiculous !!

Is a safety device really needed? Are Japanese really that undependable and unreliable?. All they have to do is walk to the back of the bus & check if there are any children left on the bus. It's not like there are any hiding spots on the bus. :-(

Been vaccinated 3 times & I & the people around me were wearing masks when I contracted covid. So, not much ( no ) faith in the masks. I do wear a mask when going indoors just as to not be ridiculed by the clueless people around me. Also believe the government sends mix messages partly intentionally as to keep the people confused & afraid. Then they are easier to control.

How many people use knives & forks to eat hamburgers ? The occasional person with a salad maybe. And the top cover that the straw goes thru is plastic. Pretty sure they'll still put everything in a large plastic bag for take outs.

Does anyone actually read the article or just the headlines & then draw snide conclusions??
The story is based on Osaka's organization Play Academy, which provides grants and training for community sports organizations.

I sure hope so. Japan is surrounded by nations with nuclear capability. As the old adage goes: you don't bring a knife to a gun fight. They wouldn't be the only ones with nukes, so they wouldn't be careless with them as that would bring about their own annihilation.

The point everyone seems to be missing, if 2 companies are allowed to do this, more companies will follow. Where will it stop?

I'm putting 1 child thru university & I'm under the 9.8 mill threshold, but I don't get anything. Seems quite unfair. As Nibeki32 suggested, just reduce our taxes. That would help everyone !

As it is a hassle to return the wallet to a police booth as I have experienced, now, If I find one, I drop it in a mail box & let JPost take care of it.

If I'm not mistaken, every prefecture has a different minimum wage. So, is it that are raising ¥28 throughout Japan & the ¥930 is for the Tokyo area ?

Thousands & thousands of athletes from all over the world have been preparing their whole life for this. I, for one, am glad they got the chance which they have been dreaming about since forever.

Maybe besides not wasting the blemished fruits & veggies, they should also sell the stuff they dump to keep prices reasonable in stores when there's a bumper crop.

Not only is just 13.8% of the population vaccinated, most likely 95% of that 13.8% are over the age of 65 & I don't think that many over that age plan to attend the games or even be out on the streets during the games. If 13.8% of the population aged 20-50 were vaccinated, that would sound " a little" better.

Amazes me how the worl world is a fraid to stand up to the bully country China. Taiwan is a country. Plain & simple. They complain about evry little thing they find offensive & the whole world kowtows to them. The world just cares about money. They complain about human rights & the such, but long as China wields the almighty legal tender, Taiwan, Tibet & everywhere else in the area will never live in total harmony. :-(

Hap Smith, You are fully protected after the 1st shot. The 2nd shot is more or less a booster that has to be administered 21 days after the 1st.

Seems similar to the influenza vaccine which lasts about 6 months. Many people get those shots every year. Have to get used to the new world I guess.

BackpackingNepal- Sake loses lts flavor when heated which is why when you order ( atsukan ) hot sake in a restaurant, they use the cheap stuff as you can't tell the difference. The majority of Nihonshu is best drunk at room temperature, Some work better refrigerated.
