Posted in: Japan business lobby seeks to end quarantine for vaccinated arrivals See in context

...but only a benefit for Japanese citizens right?

Surely this is unimaginable to permit permanent residents, long-term residents and most of all general non-japan-residential foreigners?

It is reassuring to see these clearly improving (and not manipulated directly or in-directly whatsoever) data improve by the week!

We're in good hands everyone.

Thats tough, no doubt

I feel like as a key representative (lighting the fire in the opening) she should've spoken to media though - win or lose.

Another day, another olympics meme.

That being said:

Not that I know any details, but typically making jokes tend to push boundaries and explore limits though... I mean, it was during a comedy show... geez.

23 years ago, and they act on it today...

(But perhaps my thinking is a bit off in my imagination?)

Posted in: Japan to ask tax-free stores to report visitors breaking quarantine See in context

Now all we're missing is.... actual visiting foreigners. Well as soon as all countries (excluding Japan which is by default flawless) has a spotless covid record we can allow them to visit again.

Fortunately we have journalistic forces with individual integrity in Japan allowed to ask the hard questions, and not a kabuki theater facade like other lesser nations!

Great news, perhaps it may lead to realising that 130db sirens are not needed on a fire truck moving at 25mph on a deserted road at 4am.

I dont live in miyazaki but I thought this was a thing in Japan too. Emergency service cars blasting their sirens in the middle of the night all the time (but perhaps where I am there is traffic, doubt it though).

Japan is going to get all the medals when no other competition shows up.

There should be a rule that prohibits walking and holding a phone. Just like driving rules.

Interestingly, as far as i recall for alot of streets in Seoul it is, they have markings on the ground "no phone and walking" as the no smoking signs here.

Posted in: Japan OKs Moderna, AstraZeneca vaccines, but AstraZeneca to be put on hold See in context

Sorry I'll just add one note since I can't edit the previous comment:

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Tokyo cannot have people be distanced from one another but expect the whole country to do it. Alright.

Once again, seem to happen in every photo in the COVID category:

I think it is great to see people part of these matters take social distancing (and other recommendations preached) seriously, sitting bunched up and attend in person as much as they can.

It is evident in the photo once again, that they are taking the social distancing (and measures they preach) very seriously. We are in good hands everyone.

Nice social distancing (and during a "State of Emergency") by the people in the left part of the picture.

Clearly they are vaccinated, splendid!

Billy-clubs?! Are you kidding? Unless the police are going after hardcore gangsters, displaying weapons like this to threaten the public with is just causing an already tense situation to become worse than it already is.

I wonder what, how or when they are intending to use them?

Beat up people who do something which has been "recommended" or "urged" to not do after the arbitrarily chosen time?

Oh that's right - I forgot! Rules only applies to those outside of politics.

More stimulus? Something like 30% of all USD in existence has already been created in the past 12 months, I'm not joking...sadly

This is pure insanity
