Posted in: Tokyo reports 534 new coronavirus cases as Japan goes on maximum alert See in context

The covid situation allows us to vividly view cultural differences by govts and peeps around the world....

In japan it's lots of talk and little action. Raising the "alert level" has little impact on peoples behavior and business as usual for the most part as the Summer Games must Go on....

Posted in: Halloween revelry subdued in Japan due to pandemic See in context

ust like Christians have no idea about Christmas either. So what?

It's Halloween JAPANESE style! They manage, quite well actually, to adapt other countries events and culture and make it all their own!

THANK the Gods Japan DOESNT copy everything exactly!

......And to all this I say by japan copying in order to make their own culture is quite sad. This is just helping to lead to the demise and downfall of this country's own history / culture. It's no wonder that young Japanese don't know or are losing interest....

Unfortunately many more of these disasters will occur in Tokyo due to negligence of drivers who rush through red lights or who fail to stop at the white line in front of many crowded crossings in Tokyo and J cops rarely monitor these moving violations.

Posted in: Gov't rethinks easing crowd limits at events as infections rise See in context

Here is the big question for the J gov't...do we do a "lockdown" again to decrease the infection numbers at the expense of our economy or do we carry on as we have been at the risk of our health? I'd vote to do the latter like Hawaii did.

too many stories recently of unappreciative offspring unjustly forcing a parent to the next world due to stress and mental instability in a society where little outside help occurs. Not looking forward to more stories like this.
