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.

So basically they are allowing visitors to events but can cancel it with another state of emergency ? Do you see it coming ? They gonna cash out the tickets money and will not refund it when they will announce another SOE.
