Taiwan and Hongkong have to stay together against the biggest Bully in the world: China
And the rest of the world should support them!
I hope the Riots and the Resistance against the Bully China will continue!

So annoying. Especially in the fruits and veggies aisle. Some people (especially the older women) feel that they need to closely inspect every single thing before they put it in their basket.
But you guys know that this behavior is everywhere in the world. Not only in Japan.
In my home country they don't even touch it, they also eat it. (Strawberries, Cherries..).
Old and young people. Before they buy it, they check the taste.
Don't misunderstand me. I agree with you, that this behavior is bad.

Yes I am confused too about Oldman13's post.
It is completely different to his ordinary opinion.

I took out the foreigner card, because 90% of the posters here are always complaining about the behavior of the japanese government and the japanese citizens.
I just want the people here to see, that also foreigners are not behaving correctly.
Of course you are right, we see it on both sides.

I agree with Mirai Hayashi, that the hot weather probably has no influence on the virus.
Personal self prevention is the key point!
Face masks, use hand sanitizer and keep social distance as far as it possible.
I can just talk about my living area and my experience, but most of the people who don't care about self prevention are foreigners.
I saw a group of foreigners in a supermarket (5 people), stuck together very close and nobody wears a mask. At the cashier they stood very close to the japanese guy in front of them, even there are marks on the floor where to stand.
The cashier complaint to them, that they should please step more behind. At least they did it.

That is very nice to hear.
I think everyone here agree that a re-opening is absolutely OK and necessary.
We all know japanese people are very cautious people and they will do their best, (like they already did) to keep the pandemic under control.
Nobody in Japan will run around without any self-prevention.
But I can see some people walking around without mask. And you know what? 90% of the people without masks are foreigners! I think we foreigners should learn from the japanese people!
My experience from yesterday:
I went to Uniqlo yesterday, but before I could go in, the staff forced me to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer and they measure my fever.
I felt very very safe during my shopping at that Uniqlo store.

I just went to Uniqlo to check the new incoming Tshirts.
At the entrance, the staff stopped me, forced me to wear mask, use hand sanitizer and they measured my fever!
That is very nice and best prevention.
I felt very safe to do my shopping at that Uniqlo Store this morning!

What you are saying, people are saying this since 5 months.
But the reality proves everyone wrong!

Yes you are right and I remember your posts.
You are one of the few people who saw that coming.
I didnt understand why people always downvoted your posts.
Here in my neighbourhood there are many elderly people living and struggeling a lot now and dont know how to survive the next 2 months.
One elderly couple have a very nice izakaya. I support them every weekend by Take out order.
At least I can do a little to help them.

I am getting tired of always the same thing: lack of testing, lack of testing...
That is not related to the reopening.
Look at Germany, America, Italy, Spain..they are doing a lot of testing, many many tests every day, (Many posters here always compare Japan with other conutries and complain about Japan's test numbers)
now these other countries with many many tests are re-opening too!
In Germany, Beergardens are already open and my friends and many other germans joined already!
Of course people are following the sanitary and prevention rules which are set by those places.
The same thing will also be in Tokyo!
People will follow the recommended prevention actions which will be set by each place.
Tokyo people are not stupid! They will not walk around or join places like idiots without any prevention measures.

Now we can see the impact of this lockdowns.
More and more people will suffer from the Lockdowns much more than from the Virus itself.
Many many people predicted that and saw that coming. But nobody was listening.

Very nice news.
Hopefully from Monday Tokyo will reopen.
Where are all the "lets wait another 2 weeks"-posters?
3 ( +8 / -5 )
"Experts" and "Specialists"...always when I read the news in the papers, the internet or in the TV. There are always "experts" and "specialists".
I can not remember that any of these so called "experts" and "specialists" did ever prevent or showed any helpful action for any disaster or problems in world life's history.
The only thing what they are doing is talking and talking...but no positive action behind their talks

We are an IT company that attaches great importance to manners over technology
Instead of great importance to manners, they should better set a great importance to improve the technology.
Maybe many IT companies have manners, but are unable to install a "Home Office System".

That is very very nice idea!
Especially because japanese people really likes fireworks, and according to my opinion the japanese fireworks are the best in the world!
This will really cheer up and make the people happy!
I really support this idea!
I hope I can see it!
@the resident, strangerland and David
100% agree to your posts!
I am so surprised, that so many posters here are negative and complaining about each small thing.
I am really wondering if they ever enjoy anything in life.
Me, you and many many others are suffering from this Corona thing, but should we put our head in the sand, give up and stop enjoying things in life?
No way! Never!

What happened to the original, cool atmosphere, with nice and friendly people fully packed izakayas, which represent Japans heart and lifestyle?
I really hope that my 2 favorite izakayas in my area will never install a stupid thing like that.
Otherwise the real Izakaya lovers will never return.

What is the difference between Osaka and Tokyo according the daily life?
Osaka is reopen but Tokyo not. I dont understand that.
It is time to reopen Tokyo, and let the people live their lifes like they want.
My home country with the top number 3 worldwide cases opened its beergardens already.
The people all over the world want to go back to their lifes!
So let them do!

If you open bars and shopping malls, people go out to visit these places.
What are Abe and Koike expecting? Open these establishments and people stay at home?
Stop this stay at home BS and let the people go back to live as, like everyone can see, they want to.

Stop the "stay home" BS and problem is solved!

Like I said above:
It is really interesting to see that almost nobody continues screaming for a "Strict Lock down" like during the past weeks.
Almost everyone here in this discussion agree now with the "re-opening".
