Never understood people saying that the Omicron is just like the flu, but freakout when they are asked to take the vaccine. They believe they will get no symptoms if they get the COVID but also believe they gonna die if they take the vaccine. Is there a mind control skill to choose how you body will respond ?
Personal Bias should NOT be followed, if it contradict what the scientists and doctors says.

Since when masks doesn't work anymore ? Just asking because lot of people here are saying that masks doesn't work when In fact it did for 2 years of pandemic. And people whining about other people wearing it. I mean until the pandemic is really over, I don't see the problem of people wearing them, it is not like you are required to do so, or even that mask did cause a health problem to anyone.

Those cults are everywhere and they recruit in front of train stations. A week ago, i got a prospectus for one at the entrance of the station and before the young lady start to talk, I ripped the prospectus in front of her and said "いらない". I hate those people. In Belgium and most of Europe, there is law that forbid abuse of weakness. And because of those law, if a cult ask you for money, you can sue them for abuse of weaknesses. It is time for Japan to regulate those cults.

The problem that Kishida doesn't seems to understand is that people are not utterly against the state funerals. They are against using the money of the taxpayers, because it is an unaccessary burden to add to all people living in Japan. If you really want to do it, just use your own money or the money of the moonies since almost 40% of the people of your party has ties with them.

The real problem here is that Japan put a really low effort into recognizing mental issues as an illness. As a result, most people with mental illness in Japan are not recognized as ill and are free to roam in the street. I see creeps and weird people every single day.

So basically Bach can enter Japan and avoid quarantine while most of us has to do quarantine ? I do have the japanese vaccine certificate from the ward office and yet I still have to do PCR test and do quarantine when I will come back. It is beyond stupidity...

I don't understand people saying that the vaccine is unsafe and yet telling people they are safe because the death rate is 0.1%? You have a massively higher chance to catch the Covid and die from it than having a life-threatening side effect from the vaccine. Also if you develop a life-threatening side-effect (the average number is 3 cases per million people) with the vaccine, it probably means you would potentially die from the virus itself.

For people asking the station, it is In Sendagaya Station. I visited him last week just before Olympics, there were quite a lot of people (including Japanese people) supporting him and I don"t think the policeman would try to oust him if there are too many people. You should go and support him if you have the time to do it.

@hiro, most country in Europe has way higher minimum minimal wage, for instance my home country Belgium has 10.69EUR minimum wage which is 12.65$ or 1350 yens. So no Japan is not on par with most western country, it is far behind.

Is it me or there is a guy looking like Bach on the bridge? What a farce. Doing a billion-dollar event and cannot even hire a decent photograph. Gloomy cloud, no spectators, this just look sad. It would have been a thousand time better to postpone to next year and have a full olympics, not this quasi-olympics of mascarade.
