'Covid-19 has killed more than 5.2 million people around the world since the coronavirus was first declared in late 2019' - This article needs some fact checking. Covid-19 maybe on the death certificates alongside other causes of deaths but has not killed more than 5.2 million people of it's own. Much, much less if you account for the actual causes. 'Covid-19 was detected in more than 5.2 million people who have died', would be a better line.

Already had our bonenkai. Was great fun and enjoyed the second round at the packed bar with pretty, young ladies.

It's totally fine. This trial of 3 businesses in Japan is going nowhere. Hell they might even get sued for discrimination laws which exist in Japan. They can't force businesses to go along with it, so just go to a business that doesn't go along with the segregation. Drink and be merry. Hopefully only the non discriminatory vaxxed people will join in the fun.

Good on them. Protesting against discrimination and measures your own country's government you don't like in a democracy like Japan is a right. Great to see at least one democracy in the region still allowing freedom for it's citizens.

While amusing in a sense Japan is being told by a foreign country that it's unsafe and a little infected. US nationals are not currently allowed into Japan unless PR, spouses or the like. Some businesspeolle maybe also.
This is a political statement with no teeth. Has nothing to do with the Olympics. It is trying to encourage (likely at the behest of the J Gov) vaccinations in Japan.
That is all.

They should scrap some (aka a great majority of) events and make it better. Extreme sports need to be added or it's just another year of extremely boring run here, run there. Jump this, jump that. Balance on this, balance on that. Where is all the action and threat of injury or death we get in the Winter Games?

Besides the 23 wards that make up Tokyo, with the exception of a few isolated outer islands, what other "metropolitan" area makes up any other part of Tokyo?
Places like Tachikawa, Tama, Machida and Hachiyoji and between are considered metropolitan areas in Tokyo.

New increases in cases and no one will be leaving or entering Japan in a hurry. For people stranded and wanting to return to jobs and families in Japan, people wanting to visit relatives in their home countries, for taking business or lesuire trips. Increasing infections mean increasing isolation.
