People who call out this as stupid decision are same one who criticize government for insufficient measures to curb corona virus spread among citizens. So it seems they can never be satisfied.

@Monty, you summarized well.

As @TokyoJoe mentioned, change need to come at top level. First (Boss, Manager) should leave office on time and staff will follow the course.

From my point of view, first problem is each employee out of job fear will stay back for just not to be in bad books of Manager and second issue is salary structure in Japan which is designed such that one need to clock in more hours to meet the expenses and other requirements since base salary hardly help to survive forget about desired savings.

"So, despite being a Permanent Resident, working in Japan, paying tax here, owning property here, having my family here, I have to go to the "Visit Japan Web" to return to my home. Yeah, can't wait to "visit".

This pandemic has made it perfectly clear that the Japanese government considers all non-Japanese people to be tourists, even those who have built their entire lives here."

I would say it would be naive enough to assume gaikokujin (foreigners) will be treated same as native Japanese irrespective of their resident status or years of stay or economic status in Japan.

Posted in: China urges Japan to support Beijing Olympics See in context

Although I strongly oppose China's encroachment mentality towards neighboring nations and it need to be dealt with iron hand but banning Olympics is like snatching an opportunity from all the sportsman of respective nations who are practicing for years and ban is not the apt solution.
