I don't see how that is going to make a difference. Same number of people still need to get home, so more people on the last train... Is that the secret to prevent catching Covid?

The only people who will decide are the athletes themselves if they are prepared to or able to come and countries around the world if they are in a right condition to compete or not. Not UN not IOC and not JOC!!!

This is because Japanese government is in a state of denial concerning the virus. Health professionals have been warning the the cases will increase. But the desperate need to hold the Olympics is the priority with this government. Thus pretending that everything is OK brought us to where we are today...

This morning I saw a bunch of old men at an intersection with flags about Covid happily waving at passing by cars and I wandered, who is paying for this pointless activity.

Here it is! What I was saying! Nissan did it and then blamed it on Ghosn! And the prosecutors are working for Nissan continuously spreading their lies. They tried torturing Ghosn to get him to confess, but he escaped and now the truth is starting to come out!!! How embarrassing, complete loss of face for Nissan and Japan's legal system (if you can call it that)!!!

I lost interest in Sumo after what happened with Takanohana. The Sumo association should be disbanded and a new one started from scratch.

Suga can't make a decision. You've seen him looking down at prewritten notes every time he talks, that means all the questions have been submitted beforehand so that he has a chance to ask his master what to say.

I wonder how many of them will be vaccinated.
Give a man vaccine and you protect him for life. Give a man religion and he will pray for end of virus till he dies of it.

Universal basic income will become a global norm sooner or later not only due to Corona virus, but also due to AI taking over many jobs and automation in offices and factories. More and more people will find themselves out of work.

What kind of a moron calls 110 for non-emergency? In some countries, you get penalized for that.
asking for a ride home in police cars because there were no taxis
What are you a complete moron who is unable to phone a cab office?
and inquiries about what to do for meals for children who had to stay home while schools were closed.
Police are not responsible for your diet options. Are you brain dead and unable to go and buy a Bento?
I am saying this because two years ago when my sister-in-law came for a visit, her husband was phoning her every day asking her what he should eat!!! I, my wife and my-father-in-law called him an idiot.
What is society in Japan coming to?? Unable to think for themselves in the era of convenience where all decisions are made by someone and their brains are starting to atrophy...

Impeach him and prosecute him for all his other crimes and send him to Jail. Make an example of him and all other members of his family who have used his presidency to enrich themselves, so that in the future, somebody like Cruz will think twice before attempting something similar...

Japan can easily spend 1.2 trillion yen on Olympics, but not 100 million to compensate 12 women that have been abused by the Japan's imperial army and face this disgraceful part of Japan's history. The world is watching you Japan!!!

Takashi Ono, 43, is suspected of attempting fraud after he sent 25 fake popsicle sticks
This is a 43 year old who sends 25 fake Popsicle sticks. 25 no less!!! A 43 year old!!! To be able to get 25 of those sticks you have to consume thousands of Popsicles! And this 43 year old genius does not think sending 25 of them from the same address would not be seen as suspicious at all...

There are laws already, obviously that is not stopping them from doing what they are doing.

America became worlds laughing stock thanks to Trump and his supporters... This moment in history will be remembered for eternity, just like Tiananmen Square Massacre, it will haunt America forever. People talking about overcoming racism and Black Lives Mater, not going to happen!!! Trump is the result of this right wing fascist mob that has up to now been hiding in the corners, they created him not he created them. The fascists came out in to the open thanks to their creation and now they do not want to go back in to hiding. And Trump must be prosecuted for treason and all other crimes that he has committed, because if he isn't, it will encourage others to go one step further. Some say, he should not be prosecuted in the name of unity/healing, I strongly disagree!

You can say that again! It takes too long for the government to make a decision and it is never able to adapt to changing situation. Reminds me of Titanic, unable to change course...

Well the reason that Japanese did not come and will not come to Lebanon to question him is very simple. They will not be able to question him 18 hours a day without a lawyer in a freezing cell every day to force a confession, because there are laws against that kind of questioning even in Lebanon!!! In fact that kind of questioning is against international law and is only done in countries like Japan, China, North Korea, Cuba and some African countries. It puts Japan in a very evil group of countries...

It takes a week for the symptoms to show and then 2 weeks for the virus to run its course. And they think about a month is going to fix all problems???!!! And then they are planing to start vaccinations in late February???!!! This is another pathetic decision added to a loooooong list of pathetic decisions made by this government... But do you know why it's only a month??? Because Japan must be ready for the Olympics, of course. And then Japan can pretend to the world that the virus has been conquered.

My questions to the ones that think Olympics must be staged are: Which athletes do you think are going to come? They had no chance to practice to full extent and therefore not ready or unable to come due to virus restrictions. Who is crazy enough to actually attend this event? The ones who are ignorant enough to think this virus is a myth? And finally if an athlete wins an event and gets a gold medal, what does that medal represent, knowing that he/she did not compete against athletes who are in top condition? Absolutely NOTHING! that medal is worthless!!! But then, Japanese don't care how they get medals as long as they get them... So my suggestion is, just Japan compete with themselves and that way get ALL the medals, everybody will be sooooooo happy and this amazing athletic feat would be entered as a Guinness World Record for the world to laugh at for the rest of time!!!
