Posted in: Japan extends entry ban on non-resident foreigners until end of February: Kishida See in context

It is now time for Japan to open up for people that are vaccinated with third boost, tested before arrival and tested upon arrival. It is redicilous in the long run to lock out the world for those who follow the rules and vaccinates and have covid passport. Come on, rewards to those who follow all the rules. In the long run Japan will never avoid getting new cases of covid by not allowing entry, it is only porsponing and extending the problem. In my opinion.

Posted in: Kishida taking no chances as Japan closes border over Omicron See in context

First we take first shot covid vaccination, then second, then third. We are tested before travel, after travel….still is not enough and borders are closed. Perhaps Japan should pay all the airlines so we that have tickets to Japan can be refunded for not ever being able to enter the country. Because airlines make us move the tickets for new dates, two years of that now. And in Europe we have been plenty liberal to make people that are fully vaccinated enter after testing.

Posted in: Japan finds new coronavirus variant in travelers from Brazil See in context

Unfortunately it is the same situation in many countries. They allow people to enter from all over the world, for various reasons, workers, students, family, etc. Many bring virus with them, mostly unknowingly, I hope. During the Christmas holiday it has caused major rise in infected corona numbers and the vaccine is very slowly moving forward. The authorities have been too liberal and many people do not sense the seriousness of the situation. So here we are, after 10 months of dealing with corona, worse off. It does not make much sense after all the effort, that we are doing worse. No Wonder many feel tired after working so hard with little result.

First thought this article was a joke! Incredible that there are people living in such naive state of mind. Madness is the only excuse, unfortunately.

Looks like fun! Kaiju, robots, anime, Manga and other sci-fi related entertainment has been a great Japanese export adventure all over the world. Adored and loved by millions, attracting large amounts of young tourists curious to visit Japan. So anyone negative to this fun adventure needs to take a hike. Will visit on my next journey to Yokohama!

Japan has an incredible amount selection of music on cd’s and vinyl. It is pure pleasure to visit Tower Records in Shibuya and all the other music store. Japan marked has many special editions of albums from artists all over the world, not found in the west. Me and thousands of others love to buy music in Japan, simply one of the best places to travel. Thumbs up and hoping to be back soon in Tokyo music hunting.

Posted in: School for Takarazuka Revue trainees abolishes harassment-like rules See in context

I must admit, after visiting the Takarazuka theatre in Tokyo several times, that it left me with an eerie and strange feeling. Like going to ceremony of rituals, like a cult. So reading what I see here those not surprise me. Very talented performers, but it does seem to be a theatre of the past, repeating itself with the same formula year after year even if the world is changing. But then again people need escape from an hectic world. There are plenty of great entertainment in Tokyo to choose from.

Posted in: A-bomb survivor keeps up fight for nuclear disarmament See in context

His story is a direct link to our past which we should learn from. Unfortunately our downfall is that we do not learn from previous mistakes and therefore let history repeat itself. Hopefully new generations will fight for a more peaceful and non nuclear planet. We can hope!

Posted in: Tokyo reports 237 new cases of coronavirus See in context

Important that there will be no laid-back attitudes towards the corona virus. It will not disappear by itself. We all know How fast this virus spreads if it is allowed to roam freely. I have always been impressed by Japan for years for wearing face masks during the flue season and most are doing so now. But somethings gotta give in these times and the willingness to do so important, for now, Even if it robs of a little freedom now. An investment for the near future. If not, we will have an endless situation. And the government should take on the responsebility by being honest and open with the public. Only then can we work together in the effort to make things better.
