If there is a problem with ‘security’ then Japan just needs to stop selling as other countries have done or never do…

“When I saw the new booster was able to tackle Omicron variant I thought, ‘I’m doing that,’” Gucwa said. “I don’t want to deal with Omicron again. I was kind of thrilled to see the boosters were updated.”

Well, apart from one day in bed with it, I was fine.

I’ve been out many times sans mask and seem to have immunity.

Do I really need ‘another’ booster?

I’m fine thanks…

Posted in: Young women in Japan want only one child or none at all: survey See in context

This article is extremely depressing but the reasons for the pessimism are not surprising to me.

During this pandemic the Japanese government failed to support a large number of citizens and THAT clearly has influenced the minds of the the young.

Early on I recognized this failure to act-completely rearranged my finances and changed direction.

Financially, more secure and able to relax.

The lesson is do not rely on anyone but yourself and do not be afraid to change!

How convenient!

Now many Japanese people can travel to international airports and welcome the foreign tourists.

It’s a win win.

Japan has not been good for over thirty years and counting.

And….

An official at a major machinery maker said a weaker yen still works to help lift earnings when overseas profits are repatriated.

Which company because the other 99% are doing JS!

The problem has been and will be that the ordinary working citizen never sees the benefit of government policies (in Japan) despite paying a quarter of salary in various taxes and pension contributions.

The BOJ is not concerned at all with the people of Japan and answers only to an ministry of unelected officials.

The Japanese are becoming poorer and poorer…

@JeffLee

Japan will have to scrap proof of vaccination as the sheer number of arrivals won’t allow for checking.

Nope. You show your vaccination certificate when you check in with the airline before arriving in Japan. I have even showed mine at baggage drop-off counters (after doing check in at home online). The process was hardly any different or time consuming than in the pre-pandemic era.

I have been back to Japan having been doubly vaccinated when most Japanese were still waiting for their first shot and the quarantine office here were not interested in that proof, only a negative PCR result.

At present, is only the thrice vaccinated that can enter without a PCR check.

You are assuming that a negative PCR test will preclude entry to Japan then?

Of course people will focus on the cannabis but the focus should be on the 3 deviants in the confrontation.

@Strangerland

I am no longer surprised at what Japan considers an appropriate response to the Corona virus.

All I know is that the current system with low numbers coming in at present could not be expanded to many times that number.

The question is can the Japanese return to normality or what is normal in most other advanced nations?

My guess is that they won’t be able to.

Posted in: Unification Church in Japan vows reform after criticism See in context

Reform is such a pathetic and useless response by the government but it is expected.

The LDP will never force custodial sentences on church management as 1.it would open a can of worms and 2.the people of Japan would see that its own government has colluded in fraud against them.

From October 11, Japan will restore individual tourism and visa-waiver travel to people from certain countries as long as they are vaccinated.

What does that mean?

3,4,5 or 6 times dosed with some genetic program?
