As others have said, Japanese people will be wearing masks forever. It will take celebrities or politicians telling them they don’t need to wear them anymore in order for them to stop.
Sadly, masks are a part of the Japanese uniform now, just like suits and neckties.

His only measure is to keep the border closed to foreigners.

“What does "full" mean? In reality, the only thing they should ask for is work-from-home for as many employees as possible.”
The buchos will be seething.

Completely useless “measures” that target only bars and restaurants, while starbucks remains full of cackling moms whose kids are all in school. I hope the restaurants completely ignore these idiotic and unfair requests.

The majority of Japanese people don’t want foreigners here. The travel ban is disgusting.
I hope the people who are waiting to enter for school or work change their minds and choose a country that will welcome them.

Wait. Isn’t the border closed? How could this be happening?

What’s he gonna do double check that the border is still closed?

Good thing Kishida sealed up the border. Well done.

Well done dummy. Glad he didn’t kill anyone.

Congratulations on becoming an adult. Now go buy 3 suits and work 60 hours a week.

No seriously, who cares.

A miracle is the only explanation.
Watch what happens after the election.

Just call it state of closing restaurants early.

Stop putting end dates on them then. The government looks foolish every time.

“Resign. Just as useful as a sack of old potatoes.”
Sack of old potatoes would be a better leader.

This is just going to continue to get worse and worse, as literally nothing is being done. Koike wearing a tracksuit doesn’t seem to be working.
Maybe opening schools in two weeks to full classrooms and rammed school buses will help to curb the spread.

Thank you citizens of Japan for paying 20 billion dollars for something you didn’t even want. Thanks for 3 weeks in a luxury hotel. Good luck with corona! Bye!

“Why are NBA players allowed to compete in an amateur contest? The US team should be comprised of college players, not professionals.”
Same goes for the Japanese baseball team.

“Yes it must be the fault of the crowd-less Olympics! That's what we should focus on.”
Did you see how many idiots were gathered outside the stadium (for literally no reason) on Friday?
They wouldn’t be gathered like that if the Olympics were canceled would they?

“The last Tokyo olympics in 1964 were held in the middle of October for these exact reasons. Why wasn't the same done this time?”
NBC doesn’t want the Olympics happening during the NFL football season.

Japan is not giving courage to the world.
The world is looking at Japan in amazement, at how stupid it is to host such a massive event after failing to vaccinate the population.

Nobody needs to see it, and nobody here wants it. Shut up Suga.
