I wonder just how many have read the comments he is quoted as saying. Yes he is too old (just like most of them). I’ve only works if women are willing to take part

Simian lane - agree. Bye bye Nissan and Toyota. And Honda at Swindon are still using 19th century management practices. Time to modernize your thinking Japan.

@ kurisupisu is spot on. Japan cannot pretend to be the victim with its earlier aggression. And besides only a fool would trust Putin

Japan as A permanent member - no sorry there are too many unresolved domestic issues needing attention now. Too many OLD men running this J gov club. There are zero incentives for young Japanese to raise a new generation. The time of the dinosaurs is over

Test negative within 72 hours. Remember the Chinese student, who had a test done before leaving China. But it was not an acceptable test to Japan !
is there anyone associated with J gov capable of forward thinking ?
ok - silly question

Injustice is too polite. In Japan the prosecution always wins. In China people disappear, in Russia they are poisoned and in America they are just shot. Outrageous I call it

There will not be enough incentives to tempt foreign investors. J gov will want too much control.

75 years after Japanese imperialism what lessons have been learnt ?
instead of offering those orphans a home they were abandoned. Time to GSB and think for yourselves. Learn lessons from your own history

Arrived in Japan 2016. Every evening news was about Tokyo 2020 and koike complaining about the high costs she had inherited. I quickly learnt that she is a true politician and I quickly lost all interest in Tokyo 2020. So 2024 or just forget it

Ok so none of us know the true figures relating to coved 19 in Japan. But what we do know is that, the media is only telling us what the J gov wants the people to believe. Hell they still dream about a successful Olympics.

Sensible would have been Japan 2024. macv you will get your wish because no country will have money to spare for this irrelevant event

@Ashley Shiba says what is factually correct but gets negative responses. Nuts !
this J gov cannot even implement rules governing bicycles, never mind immigration.

I’m feeling a bit foolish, been here 4 years and I assumed there were no rules for cyclists. And that pedestrians and motorists just had to get out their way. If this wasn’t so serious it would be really funny.

@BrainGuyJapan you miss the point. Smithinjapan is not wishing bad things for Japan. He understands the Jgov PM is abesolutely useless and is a passenger not a leader

@oldman_13 I don’t care that you don’t care because yours is the minority view. Thankfully the future of Japan does not depend on people of our age.

The only social distancing I see in Japan is when they are driving their cars

I live in the countryside near Akita, the last 4 days the locals have stopped wearing masks out and about and in shops. Did I miss a new announcement or suggestion ?
schools restarted I see them in groups without masks coming from combeni
obviously the worst is already past.
such a skillfull J gov

@chip star and @mark are both spot on.
this is a non event not worth reporting and certainly not worth any police time.
but the memory of the ww2 dead is insulted by the inclusion of the 1,000+ war criminal names recorded at the Yasukuni shrine. Abe remove those names

I propose Pepper for PM.
they had robots on hand to show spectators to their seats for the Olympics but still insist on using fax.
what a country of contradictions.
I was using fax in 1970.
why are they called “lawmakers” they only make suggestions

I cannot blame the commuters or shoppers in this country for not grasping just how serious this situation is. The example given to them by their so called J Gov is pathetic/irresponsible.
I once watched a lady in Sapporo waiting for traffic lights to change. The small side road she wanted to cross was closed to traffic because of road works, but still she waited for the green light !
So Abe san pay their wages to stay at home for a month or two

@Tora - ‘the whole damn fiasco off until 2024’
this has always been the best option, Even then many countries economy’s will not have recovered by then

point taken, you are correct. My reaction because I witnessed a young boss bollocking an older employee in a lift in business hotel in Tokyo once. I Regard such people as lacking management skills

@Burning Bush - boss was’ enforcing social distancing’
harrassment victimization bullying - simple
so pack commuters into trains like human sardines, but then enforce social distancing in the office - ok I’m convinced
