Posted in: End of Japan COVID curbs triggers surge in visitors to nearly 1 million in November See in context

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.

Posted in: WHO plans to rename monkeypox over stigmatization concerns See in context

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

Agreed. People who see racism everywhere are often the biggest racists themselves.

Posted in: Foreign business chambers urge Japan to speed up vaccine rollout See in context

Some JT posters like to slag off "the West" at every opportunity but, mark my words, the West is going to emerge from this pandemic long before Japan does. Western countries have been much more effective at getting their people vaccinated - my friend in California got his injections at his local supermarket. That's a far cry from Japan which has a vaccination program moving forward at the speed of a tectonic plate.

The West is the Best! LOL. Back to you.

Posted in: Man gets suspended sentence for killing deer with hatchet in Nara See in context

It sounds like he needs help with both his drinking and controlling his anger. Maybe the court should have ordered him to seek treatment in addition to the suspended sentence.

China's retirement age is 55!? Wow. That's, uh, pretty cool. Maybe I'll get a job there when I'm 54.

Just don't breathe the air or drink the water and you'll be fine.
