My goodness, you guys even manage to argue about the end of the daily infection figures. And it’s still the same people making the same comments.

Posted in: Japan to ask foreign guests to wear face masks at Abe state funeral See in context

I always try my best to be respectful of the culture where I'm visiting. You know, the whole "when in Rome" spiel, but this is just ridiculous. What's the point of getting 3x or 4x vaccinated if you still have to wear a mask?

Kishida has consistently stated that japan needs to live with the virus. But this is not living with the virus. This is still fearing the virus and letting it control your life.

Why stop at restaurants?! Why not make it mandatory everywhere? Like hotels are the only vectors for spreading covid. Smgdfh...

Posted in: Why the Unification Church has become a headache for Kishida See in context

The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, known as the Unification Church,

No, it was formerly known as the unification church/cult. The organization legally changed its name in hopes of shedding past luggage. A lot of good that has done.

Posted in: Role in Japanese war machine made Hiroshima, Nagasaki A-bomb targets See in context

Japan loves to play the "victim" in the war because of the atomic bombings if Hiroshima and Nagasaki,, but lest we forget they were the aggressors during the war. This gets drowned out by the whitewashing of the war in history books.

Japan did not deserve to be nuked, but they certainly played a huge role in the decision.

Can't Hollywood come up with anything new these days? It's all Marvel, DC Comics or a sequel / prequel/ postquel. It's almost as bad as what's shown on japanese TV.

Posted in: Slim majority of Japanese oppose state funeral for ex-PM Shinzo Abe See in context

I am no fan of neither Abe nor the LDP, but holding a state funeral is not that big of a deal. It's common practice in most countries to memorialize politicians. Must we scandalize everything these days?

Posted in: 2nd Japan case of monkeypox confirmed in Tokyo See in context

people should read/understand the pathology of monkey pox. Basically if you're not gay/bisexual then you have nothing to worry about. This fear mongering from the press is reprehensible.

On a side note, I wish gay men would act responsibly and wear protection.

Posted in: With Abe pale and lifeless, a doctor at the scene prayed for a miracle See in context

it could be said that the CPR performed immediately after he was shot forced the blood out of abe's heart faster than if they would have tried to just stem the bleeding. CPR is not for gunshot wounds...

Posted in: High court rejects paternity harassment allegations by Canadian man See in context

this case isn't as clear cut as this story makes it out to be. he took extended leave, not just paternity leave, for his child. and when he finally decides, on his own terms, to return to work, he expects everything to be the same. well, sorry, dude. i don't see your company demoting you as harassment. an employer expects certain duties from their employees, and when you failed to live up to your end of the bargain, that's what happens.

Posted in: Clients will be OK with wearing a mask indoors but wearing them 24 hours is a hassle. The cost of having a guide at all times may deter clients until later when they have more flexibility. See in context

how can it be xenophobia when Japanese people are also asked/forced to follow these rules? have you seen a maskless person in japan? it's like spotting waldo in those book. forced to have insurance? check. and the only reason they need a chaperone present at all times is so tourists can be directed to the nearest hospital or clinic if they become infected.

this over reaction from the foreign community in japan is the typical knee jerk reaction to everything the j-gov does.

The move came after the university's former chair Hidetoshi Tanaka was found guilty of evading some 52 million yen in income tax and given a suspended one-year prison sentence at the Tokyo District Court late March, along with a 13 million yen fine.

boy this really prove that crime does pay. He’ll pocket 39 mil for sitting on his fat arse.

Posted in: Mother arrested over death of 3-year-old daughter whose legs were broken See in context

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Isn't it suspicious that the abuse started when the boyfriend moved in? And then he commits suicide after being arrested? He seems like one of those passive aggressive wankers that likes to inflict abuse on those weaker than him.

There would be a lot less bullying if every kid did this. And I'm being serious. Once you think that you could be stabbed for being a bully, then you will stop being a bully.

What a great and heart warming speech. Don't know much about Aussie politics, but this guy seems like a breath of fresh air. Let's hope he can achieve as much of his election promises as possible.

The government will also ease COVID-19 testing and quarantine rules, dividing countries and regions into three groups according to the infection situation.

Why use infections as a metric? Shouldn't being 2x vaxxed, boosted and tested before flying be enough for any traveler? Smgdfh...

The govt has never heard of tax cuts!? They would be a heck of a lot easier, more effective and cheaper to administer than this unwieldly spending package.

a tax cut in this economic environment would just lead to more household savings, unfortunately. people aren't going to spend when their immediate future is so uncertain. hence the mix of cash handouts and subsidies.

judging by the above comments, the average age is about 60.

come on, have some fun. i see this as common sense reaction to e-scooters. they definitely should not have been classified as motorcycles, and they definitely did not belong on roads.

Rising prices, stagnant wages, little savings, small pensions, 

You're batting 2/3 here, champ. Japanese are the best savers on the planet. Hence the constant threat of stagflation.

Posted in: Japan to extend antivirus restrictions in Tokyo and 14 prefectures See in context

wouldn't it be easier for the gov't to just cook the books and say that infections are falling? why go through all the hassle of endlessly extending the quasi state of emergency when that would be the simplest thing to do.

Is this official? 

i think it's as official as the mawashi paper it's printed on, meaning it can change at any time. but like you, i've been following this topic intensely and find this to be awesome news. can't wait to go back to cali in may now.

while the rest of the world is moving toward not even isolating people with the virus, japan is moving toward reducing the quarantine for close contacts! wth?!?!? this is a serious joke.

Posted in: Kishida says Japan will ease border controls; daily entry cap to be raised to 5,000 See in context

A large number of countries STILL have to quarantine for 3 days at a govt facility even if their citizens are vaccinated and boosted. What’s the “science” behind that? Just plain moronic.

Posted in: Japan to cut 7-day quarantine period for those entering country to 3 days See in context

the border controls have done nothing to stop or slow the spread of the omicron variant in japan. it just feeds into the narrative that japan is a xenophobic country.

grandpa's pills are packaged totally differently than vitamins or other supplements. her excuse doesn't hold water and she should be ashamed of herself. luckily, she won't be awarded any medals during these games even if she places in the top 3.

Posted in: Kishida says Japan will consider easing COVID border controls See in context

Kishida did not provide a timeline or other details and said he will make a decision based on a scientific assessment of the omicron variant,

The "science" has never called for a blanket closure of borders to foreigners. The "xenophobic" Japanese public did though.
