This is stupid. I don’t even think I need to explain why.

I guess they are not telling the public here that the rest of the world knows that those boosters do nothing for omicron. How kind of the government.

yeah. Neil young is a fraud. It’s a business and image thing. He made himself relevant again through this. Personally I never liked his voice.

I wouldn’t say the Neil young thing is debunked. Black stone is invested in Pfizer and Neil young’s music. Maybe it just benefited all parties.
here’s an interesting take on it.

your source is pudding?
there are too many variables to consider to claim what works and what doesn’t. There have been no double blind studies in a controlled environment simply because it can’t be done.
if you want to watch tv and keep a mask on be my guest. Don’t force children and others to force others to change their lives due to your hypochondria.
japanese haven’t changed their mask wearing habits the whole time and omicron spread anyway. Enough is enough. Let the kids breath. Show your smiles. This has already caused enough mental illness in society.

i meant I have decided , haven’t moved yet.

How about everyone just take the masks off and be done with this insanity. You all had great childhoods and teenage years and now your helping to create a society of fear for the children. This is why I’m leaving Japan. I value freedom rather than safety.
my 10 year old even gets it. We went to America this summer and he got to see everyone going about their daily lives massless and he thought it was great. We weren’t walking over bodies.

I’m so glad I decided to move out of this mask obsessed country. What a crazy place.

Oh you thought things would go back to normal?

no we don’t shut down the economy for a virus where the majority of the positives have no symptoms to very light symptoms.
japan has gone mad, 99% of the people here have been wearing mask the whole time. This is a perfect example that shows that masks have no impact.
the problem is, the free pcr test and contact tracers. Once someone has a positive test the health department asks that person who they have been around and give all those people pcr test. once they find another they ask that person to take a test. And on and on it goes.
eventually the bureaucracy will not be able to handle the positives who have no symptoms and have to reduce the testing.
As the Japanese call it, a television virus. It’s mind virus that scares people into their houses, shoot up their kids with experimental drugs and give up on living their lives. Where have the men gone in this country? Who will stand up to this nonsense? I won’t hold my breath but I will be leaving soon until The Japanese can figure out how to turn their televisions off.
-2 ( +5 / -7 )
This is all a push for booster that the Japanese public does not know do nothing for omicron.
it’s like when a movie does really bad abroad and they try to sell it as the number one movie in America because most Japanese do not consume foreign content.
-1 ( +5 / -6 )
It’s because they made the pcr test free recently. Before they cost upwards from ¥25000 yen.

good point Rezer
I encourage everyone to make complaints to their embassies. I have to mine. it’s the least everyone who has experienced this or is unwilling to travel because of these crazy rules.

thanks. I’m trying my best here to keep it cool. Looking forward to the future where I and my family can live in a free country.

yes we have legitimate reasons. My children's grandparents would like to see them and i want them to keep a relationship with their cousins. I’m not a criminal for seeing my family and neither are my children, yet we are being treated inhumanely with threat of prison if I decide to go home with my 3 healthy children.
-2 ( +13 / -15 )
yes I chose for my children to meet their grandparents and cousins after 2 and half years. We should be punished for this because we are filthy and not clean as proper Japanese who stay put in their country. It’s such a crime to meet family members. I’m sorry you don’t have anyone who loves you overseas.

i am not the only one with this horror story. Im am just one who is choosing to share it. This is happening to thousands of people. It’s an absolute disgrace.

it does not make a difference if you are vaccinated or not. Are you quarantining now? Perhaps we are in the same building. Are you both a-symptomatic? On the third day you will have to take a retest if you were negative and if you test positive the start of the stay restarts.
4 ( +6 / -2 )
it’s a terrible situation. My kids are crying everyday, my wife is upset. I have asked to go home by rental car and stay in quarantine at home but they absolutely refuse. We thought we were only going to stay here 3 days. We aren’t even sick.
Entering the country was also a nightmare. We came in close contact with hundreds of part time government staff. There were about 20 check points. Piles of documents. The worst part was a room where everyone was spitting in tubes and there were trash cans everywhere with the funnels people used to spit in the tubes. Absolutely disgusting.
this is not about controlling the virus, it’s just pure propaganda from Kishida.
the majority of positives at the airport have no symptoms, which makes me questions the validity of their pcr test. The cycles must be very high as all people need a negative test to enter the country.
5 ( +19 / -14 )
that information is correct. Only spouses and children RE-entering Japan may come in.
So if your spouse or children are not RE-entering, they will be refused to even board an aircraft going to Japan. It’s on the link you provided.

I and my 3 children have been forced in a tiny hotel room because of 3 positive pcr test with no symptoms. We were told we must stay here for 10 days or until we can all have 2 negative test in two consecutive days starting after the 6th day.
on the third day they required my negative ten year old to take a pcr test. A woman in full hazmat suit came to our door and woke us up to tell us he is positive (again no symptoms). We will now have to stay for 10 days starting the clock again.
this is hell. Japan has lost the plot and we are being punished for it. After this is over, I will make plans to sell my house and move back to America. There are no human rights here and they treat foreigners and healthy children like lepers.
my children want to see their mother and they need to get out and move around. We are at our wits end. They said if we leave without authorization I will be imprisoned for 6 months.

@zichi and Jefflee
being vaccinated does not stop the spread. If you are vaccinated it’s not 100 percent effective so there’s no absolute way to be safe.
, have the decency and courtesy to be vaccinated.
taking drugs is not a courtesy.
I understand you feel a bit cheated because you took the ineffective shot and have received no benefits from it. You are demanding perks for your obedience and effectively calling for the social credit score into Japan, because this does not stop at vaccines. It’s just the catalyst for complete control over our lives and children’s lives. Please think more deeply at what your asking for, unless this is what you want and therefore should be more honest for your hopes for a segregated fascist society.

Does the foreign material direct your cells that usually only your body can make. Oh wait, that’s the mRNA shots.

I’ve noticed this too.
also this time around the death rate compared to the positive rate is extremely low! I believe these restrictions are more harmful than helpful. Normal human activity is better than staying home and being inactive.

referring to cases abroad such as in the United States where they can operate for up to 80 years.
just because the USA makes bad decisions, doesn’t mean Japan should do the same.
