@gintonic

I didn’t see your comment but we obviously do know the price of saucepans in Japan

Or buy a saucepan with a lid for ….500 yen.

Net external assets mean little to the ordinary Japanese who is getting poorer and poorer.

Most Japanese are frightened to do anything but sit on their money( the little they have) and sparingly buy cheap Chinese imports…

Just what are the politicians doing?

It seems that they do very little except talk.

My son at university here wants to leave Japan as soon as he graduates.He works part time and has already seen the black economy and shifty work practices that have influenced him to do so.

When Japanese start dying of heatstroke then they will and only then, put 2 and 2 together….unfortunately.

Its simple isn’t it?

The Omicron variant or its close variant is what is in North Korea.

It is just not that big a problem.

@Lamilly

There are many social conventions that are followed by people all over the world that are ‘rules’

I guarantee that tourists not wearing masks will be pounced on by some xenophobic moron as Japan begins to open up due to comments from up above.

The Japanese government can’t be proud to see the people of Japan become basically worse off as taxes rise,can they?

Maybe the fallow land in Japan (increasing year by year) could have crops grown on them?

Japan’s government is also looking to secure this and that outside the country-how about inside it?

Posted in: Kishida says foreign tourists should follow Japan face mask rules See in context

Kishida is full of contradictions.

He is also adverse to mask wearing himself as his many instances of not doing so are well recorded.

By singling out tourists who may have a valid reason for not wearing a mask Kishida’s comments may lead to cases of victimisation.

Extremely foolish…

Posted in: Cancer patients seek damages from Fukushima nuclear plant See in context

The Fukushima prefectural government tested 380,000 residents aged 18 or younger at the time of the accident for thyroid cancer. About 300 were diagnosed with cancer or suspected cancer.

….

And now people are coming forward 10 years after with cancers-sounds about right.

Testing people just after the accident means nothing-why would it?

It takes time for cancer to

develop, we know that…

…..

Where did it take the police so long to enter the building?

Why wait to protect children in a school?

The police are trained to ‘protect and serve’ - an inquiry has to be held to explain this negligence…

Posted in: Japan to resume accepting guided foreign tour groups from June 10 See in context

I experienced the hermit lifestyle having been abroad and feeling the need to protect elderly relatives but on coming back to Japan, on a night out (COVID is lurking more purposefully at night) was infected.

And in my case, it wasn’t really anything than a head cold and a runny nose.

There’s no need to worry PM Kishida; the Corona virus is all over Japan!

Japan will keep the circus going for as long as possible.

There is no way Japan is going to allow Chinese group tours back since the Japanese government knows only too well that Sinovac is not effective.

Posted in: Gov't preparing to resume foreign tourist entry in June See in context

As many advanced countries have eased COVID-19 restrictions after the peak of the Omicron variant, Japan has been the only member among the Group of Seven industrialized countries that continues to refuse entry to foreign tourists.

Japan doesn’t fit the definition of an advanced country obviously.

Compare the US and the UK re ease of entry-Japan doesn’t even register.

Guided tourism as practised in authoritarian states is not normal tourism that Japan once had.

The studies, however, did not show sufficient data for effectiveness for those under that age.

Why should the 4th injection not be effective in lower age groups but the 3rd injection was?

Something doesn’t add up, does it..,

Posted in: China offers bonds, tax breaks as new medicine for ailing economy See in context

The only positive take on this article has to

be the lower taxation on some purchases being introduced.

However, the zero Covid policy and the mass PPE wearing seems to be unnecessary.

It is difficult to see the case for continuing lockdowns or mask wearing.

I cite the UK as an example where mask wearing and quarantining has given away to more normality and where cases are presently dropping.

It could be that most of the population have developed a resistance to the present virus and the variants are not a cause for concern.

The present Omicron variant or subsequent mutations are similarly not causing hospital overcrowding and businesses in Japan are not taking customers’ temperatures as was the case several months ago.

China seems to be completely illogical in its present actions

@OssanAmerica

I tried to pay for my lunch several months ago and the shop’s card reader declined my transaction.

I could have asked them

to phone MasterCard the same way I did several years ago in a yakitori shop for a much bigger bill on a Visa card transaction but in Japan I won’t make a scene about something I can easily remedy; I paid in cash.

Many shops in Japan reject foreign credit cards -I am surprised when my cards are accepted, so much so that (just in case) I usually withdraw money from a combini at the beginning of a night out..
