Posted in: Japan's summer season transformed by coronavirus See in context

Pleased to say only a handful of people actually wearing face masks on the beach we’re I live. The rest of us are having fun with our families and friends.

Human beings require vitamin D (sunlight) in order to have healthy immune systems. The whole stay at home thing is counter productive in my opinion.

Get outdoors and enjoy your lives folks!!

Rush to the market and zero liability indemnity has been granted to the vaccine manufacturers. For a virus with a 99.9% survival rate. I won’t be going anywhere near it thank you very much

It's a pity that the article fails to mention the pharmaceutical companies have been granted zero liability indemnity for any untoward side effects, injury or worse.

Trump's got the media hanging on his every word. That's a sign of a winner in my book.

Great! lets build up the herd immunity during the summer months and get Trump re-elected to continue draining the swamp.

The heavily biased left wing media will probably be the last to go but without a doubt their time will pass.

3 years and no new wars. Keep draining the swamp!

People will judge him by his actions and I’m certain he’ll win by a landslide.

it’s understandable the left wing media will use all their dirty tricks against him but it’s becoming increasingly obviously everyday that they really have no substance.

Posted in: Black Lives Matter rally held in Tokyo See in context

I’ve got “haafu” children and dealt with discrimInation on occasion in my 20+ years in Japan.

However, a little racism never stopped me setting up my own company and building my own house.

If you have the right mindset you will accomplish most things in life.

Posted in: Summer festival virus cancellations deal blow to local Japan areas See in context

Not at all. They’re going to sell tickets and keep nearly 100% as profits because of “unforeseen events” and we’re “moushiwakenai” but we can’t return your money” because it’s “already been spent” (on a new house / car / boat)

exactly! .... most of the line-up would have already cancelled by now anyway
