Praying that on 8 May, all the hideous plastic partitioning and curtaining is removed. Surely that is part of the Great Demasking. Thinking positively here.

Likewise to forgoing the facial cosplay drapery. Today was asked "rules" to wear one in a tiny corner farmer's marketing store that is wide open to the street. I donned my symbolic, handmade face shield so the cashier would calm down, and took it off the second I left. Sheesh. Will return after 8 March, when hopefully their sanity has returned. The more people unmask, the stronger will be the social agreement to defenestrate. Saw a record of 30 free faces today in Tokyo. It is getting better.

McD is not interested in your health. They are interested in the bottom line. Do not patronize them. So many other honest restaurants in Japan to patronize. Please do so.

JT, a photo please of Kishi-san.

Jeepers, people, chill out a bit. I find this utterly charming, and part of why I enjoy living in Japan. For all we know, stylus and cartridge may indeed have some sort of spirituality, which is what Shinto is all about. After all the human hand touching of them, they deserve a respectful ceremony. Cheers for the pagers ceremony, too.

Saving that photo to celebrate May 8.

If I could laser-gun the occasional roach in my kitchen, I would be only too happy to do so. For now, it is the ice-cold spray to freeze the buggers, then out the window they go...

Jeepers. Take off the face paper when you are outdoors, as it does nothing. I long to see people's entire faces again.

Make it so. The sooner, the better.
Does this include tossing the plastic partitioning and curtaining? Staff faces finally back in view?
My landmark will be when my local chain sports club (Renaissance Sports Club) removes the acres of plastic and the mask mandate. Oh, what a happy day that will be.

Posted in: We want people to thoroughly check product manuals and trash separation rules set by local governments when they dispose of the items, instead of making their own judgements. See in context
How about returning the much needed trash bins to train station platforms and around town in general? What are our taxes good for, if not this civic duty by governments?

Masks, plastic, are not effective. Covid is no longer a death sentence, more like influenza for the usual demographics. We need to see FACES for a normal society.

JapanToday, Please start using photographs featuring unmasked peeps. It is really time to get beyond this needless scaremongering.

So the stones uphill from the plant warning against tsunami were just decorative rocks.

Right! Please stop normalizing masking in ads. It is not normal, and actually dystopian and off-putting. Needed more is a cute campaign ("Let's GoFace", for instance), and a mask-free cartoon character. Fits the Japanese culture, so why not?

Just make a cosplay and cute chara campaign to convince the habituated in Japan to ditch the masks. Come on, everyone, "Let's GoTo Faces" and ditch the magical plastic, whilst at it.

MubaiR* What is wrong with almond milk, for pete's sake?
Please enlighten us.

First this: "the need to gain public support. Second this: "Most of the radioactivity is removed from the water during treatment, but tritium cannot be removed and low levels of some other radionuclides also remain."
Third: "some other radionuclides" are never defined. As I understand it, each of the giant tanks has a different composition of "some other radionuclides".
I am the public, and TEPCO will likely never gain my support, given their proven track record of decades of lying to the public, and making head in the sands decisions for the "cheapest". Look what "cheapest" bought them, and all of us.

Put the men into shorts, please, to match the leggy ladies. I am into men't legs, so let's go for fashion attire equality. OR, skip the overt sexism. JMHO!

Seems the weirdo partition board as a background has been dropped. Next: No masks Japan. It's endemic and over.
Oh, and why not open the Crown to women? We are not inferior to men!

It is never about the numbers of infections. The important point is how many are dead because of it. We are all being held hostage to extremely LOW numbers of hospitalizations.

Best: Finally seeing friends in person that I haven't seen in nearly three years. Exhilarating.
Endless masking, especially on staff everywhere. Depressing to the point of dystopia.

As far as I can see, sake in the US is 3 or 4 times more expensive per bottle than in Japan, which puts into the category of "for the rich". Will Dassai be able to sell their bottles in a price range for the average Joe?
