I cant remember hahahaha
What part of getting dressed up as a police officer with your mates, robbing an elderly couple, tying them up with their son and probably getting paid for this job don't you seem to remember? Good work J-police for getting these scumbags.

People going about their daily lives and business. Walking down Monja street in Tsukishima now and the restaurants are super busy and the standing bar is packed. It’s the weekend, it’s getting warmer and people have been living like this for a year. Government ain’t helping us anymore so seems people aren’t willing to put their lives on hold anymore. I don’t like it but I totally get it!!!!

The right call to make - extend it for a month, get the vaccines ready and then see where we are in March.
Wouldn't surprise me if Koike and Suga are thinking, “well, we have reduced the cases from 2,400 to 600 in 6 weeks. 5 more weeks and we can kill the virus, plan for the Olympics - and maybe get in a little trip to the hostess bars in Ginza as a celebration”

“Limit the number if things they touch or share” - he says. Bloody hard if you are crammed into a small apartment. Ridiculous comment from someone who is meant to be smart!

Housing prices are still shockingly high, so it makes a blind bit of difference. Still more people moving into these areas than out of them. Are there many more plots of land left in Chuo-ku Tokyo to build these massive apartment blocks??? It’s already a concrete jungle

What utter nonsense by a lame, out of touch old man. Hosting the Olympics doesn’t give me “hope and courage”. When will this glorified “Japanese sports day” saga end?

If this is true then its the right decision. Japan may be ready but lots of other countries and athletes will not be. Though it does seem strange that the Prime Minister Suga-san was adamant that they would go ahead. A public decision is needed sooner rather than later, to avoid more wasted tax money!!!

Why don’t the press or people in attendance ask him about what’s happening at the Australian Open, Premier League etc? Cases are popping up all the time and players and staff are getting infected. Why don’t the press really push for answers? I’d love to be sat there in his press conference, heckling him for answers.

In my opinion they should first start to vaccine medical staff and older people, but now I think it would be clever also to give priority to the younger people.
> I agree with Monty, the younger ones are the ones who need it first. They are gonna be paying for my pension in thirty years so best to keep them all safe and sound.

i see that JR are ensuring their staff get a good nights sleep. Sleeping at the station with a colleague is “exhausting work”. They can I’ll afford for them to “oversleep”

How about reducing the public transport system users? Nothing is gonna change when hundreds of thousands are riding packed buses and trains daily. Closing a couple of hours early will do very little. People will just go and drink earlier. People at work taking masks off, busy lunchtime restaurants, jam-packed trains - what’s the point of an SOE. We either go proper lockdown or just live with the virus. It’s so ちゅうとはんば. (Half-arsed)

New on here but always read everyone’s comments.
have to wonder if these numbers are because of the new year home trips people took or because the government are finally showing us the real severity of the pandemic, maybe a mixture of both?
9 months to prepare for this and they have done nothing. All that money wasted on the Olympics preparation instead of trained doctors, nurses, hospital equipment etc.
