Non-biding and no penalties but you can rest assured that the usual cabal of self-appointed police officers will be around to get in your face if you don't comply. Busybodies.

We are so lucky to be able to live in a country where we are encouraged to save energy. In so many other countries, just having enough energy would be a dream come true. Japan is a nice place and Japanese people are very nice people too. Let's help foreign countries develop and build their own economies and make it all happen. Take care of poverty first and it will all fall into place,

It's nice to welcome these visitors from afar but I am a little concerned about their health. After all, the coronavirus is still running rampant in Japan with thousands of cases reported every day and no end in sight. I hope these travellers will be able to enjoy all the wonderful things that Japan has to offer without getting sick.

If you hear the term monkeypox and you immediately think of black people? Then you are the racist- not the medical term being used,
