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.

Very true what your friend from India told you.
As a foreigner,knowing too much deep Japanese,you become a threat to their jobs.When I write my resume,they don't believe I did that on my own.

Lot's of foreigners who lost their jobs due to corvid had no families to go back to unlike the Japanese nationals who had.They also had little to no support and there were no flights.
And Japan still wants to attract foreign workers.

Japan will need to overhaul it's culture of how they think about foreigners.
I graduated from a Japanese uni,I speak fluent Japanese,have lived here for many years but Japanese people still avoid me like a plague.Getting services at Japanese companies is still a nightmare.Even making real Japanese friends is not easy.When I need to consult,the only people I can rely on are other foreigners.
Jobs for foreigners in Japan are very limited.Just call a Japanese company and try and get a job there.even if you have the qualifications,the fact that you have a foreign name rules you out.

Japan has been very frustrating.
I am in the export industry and I get money sent to me from abroad.But the bank has been holding the money till I fax them invoices to prove what this money is for.
And after shipping I have to fax the shipment document to them or send a copy by post.They have known me for years and have all my details yet they still continue to do this and I am bringing in legal direct foreign money into Japan and not taking out.
I am now counting down and when I get another country with same products,I'm leaving Japan.
One of my colleagues who is in a similar business but different products found a new source and is leaving this December.

A must watch.I read on another article that the prosecutors are now in limbo and do not know what to do with Greg Kelly because their main aim was to have their show with Carlos though they are still pushing on with Gregs case to save face.I hope this exposes the injustice plus many other areas eg the abduction of kids issue.

I met one J woman at work who is almost 40 and still lives with her parents.Not that her parents need her help but because its convenient for her.
And she invited me for lunch.She takes me to a very expensive restaurant.After lunch,she proceeds to take me to a street that has a line of brands where the cheapest shirt costs more than 20,000 yen and brand bags costing more than 100,000 yen and when we got there she was acting like a kid on her first expedition and insisting to me to start a shopping spree.Of course I had no interest and didn't buy.
I took her outside the shops sat her down and asked her what she plans to do with her future.She seemed clueless and surprised that I even asked her that question.She told me buying brands.I got bored and told her I'm going back home.

Lets do simple math.
The average contract or baito worker gets on average between 1000 yen to around 1200 yen.
Work 8 hours a day and and you have under 10,000 yen x 20 or 21 days a month and you have about 200,000
minus tax and your take home is about 160,000 yen.
Rent at a cheap apa-to in the suburbs about 60,000,food about 50,000,utilities,phone,households,miscellaneous,and you end up with zero or minus before the next pay.
Every woman I meet,the first question is,"Shigoto wa nani yatteru no?

That is the official trend.It is close to impossible for a commoner to reach the helm.Power is in the hands of a few families.
