Pride comes before a fall.Japanese diplomacy at it's best.
They better pray to their divinities that a Japanese national does not fall into the wrong hands in a foreign country.
The world is watching.

If you plan to buy a house in Japan anytime from now,then prepare yourself to be surrounded by tens of millions of pensioners and no one to support that pension fund.You won't enjoy house parties and have to slave till the day you drop dead.

With crappy salaries,it is a nightmare.
Many of my gaijin friends who have kids here are stuck.
Almost everyone of them I speak to looks to be in a desperate situation.
The Japanese nationals have their parents around who help out.

This decision was was only a question of when and not if.
Japan has been very slow because they wanted to be given rights to manufacture"Package" it in Japan.
Now gaijin and business people who had hopes of flying out soon will have to wait muuuucchh longer.
From the way it seems,we might not get out this year too after suffering last year due to the lockdowns.
Brace for more bad news.

This pandemic has become a tool for political manoeuvring.Humanity has been thrown out of the window.
Meanwhile,people are dying.Why not just waive the rights so that each country can manufacture their own generics and get over with the pandemic?

This whole vaccination issue is has officially become too political.
If you are my ally,you get my vaccine.
Meanwhile,some "developed"countries have paid in advance to get almost all the vaccines including extra doses in disregard of the rest of the other countries yet they are not even the manufacturers.This is a clear manifestation of selfishness.
If this pandemic is not handled equally globally,it will haunt humanity for a very long time.
This will be a lesson,who are your friends.

I wonder if it will be mandatory to have a vaccination cert so as to be allowed to board international flights.Qantas air had already mentioned that.
At this pace,I do not see any anyone going anywhere in the foreseeable future.

Jeff Lee,Japan is only developed in some sectors eg vehicle manufacturing.
Most people live from hand to mouth,doing baito and hakken.Nothing to save.Most have to do zangyo to survive.In that sense majority of the Japanese populace already live like third world or even worse when you factor in cost of living.

Kids and young people are the biggest spreaders of the virus because they're asymtomatic and don't even know they have it.
IMHO,I think this group should be vaccinated first otherwise the spread won't stop.

Women want a man who has money and working for a major corporation as a seshain.
Many young people live from hand to mouth.
I once had a J lady friend who never wanted to live with me because I wasn't a seshain at a famous company.But when I got the job,she immediately started making arrangements of moving in with me.

My friend's kid is biracial Japanese and foreigner and a baseball player.The other kids have discriminated him and when his team wins,the opponent kids complain that his team won because there's a gaijin in the team despite him being born here and to Japanese parent.
But when he is chosen to join the major leagues in the U.S,the envy begins and they suddenly wan't to be associated with him.

@ Gary,The only reason they are brought into this island is,
1.To fill in the gaps left by the younger
Japanese who go for greener pastures.
2.They are expendable.Will be kicked out
once the economic situation gets bad.
3.Low unsustainable wages,that's why the
younger Japanese don't want to be there
in the first place.
4.Last but not least.Once these young
Vietnamese start having babies,reports of
cases will start appearing here on JT
about abandoned fetuses,arrests and
subsequent deportation etc.and categorized as criminals.There are
conditions set.Can't have families.

This is the 2nd case in two weeks.I really feel sorry for her and so many others facing the same situation.
Japanese system is so cold.These trainees are not allowed to have kids or even bring their families here.They are slaves under a system of use and trash.

Society also needs to change.Nowadays,J women who are close to 40 still think they are still"Onnanoko"and want to continue partying.Yet at that age one is already"Obasan",and then rush to fertility clinics the last minute.
