If there were ever a good reason to go into a Pachinko Parlor, this is it!

Wow it always feels like a pitb to send money anywhere. But I guess we could all be more educated about this subject.

Posted in: Experts warn of untested COVID cases in Tokyo as average dips See in context

"There may be a large number of potentially infected people who have not been tested," the experts said

I bet these experts were from the comments from yesterday's article.

Ok, I am done with crime articles for today. I can not imagine what kind of human being capable of inflicting that much pain to anyone, let alone to the people closest to him.

Posted in: Americans apologize to Tokyo court for role in Ghosn escape See in context

This is all just a play that was probably set in motion some time ago when the JGov was negotiating the Taylors extradition to Japan. I would guess it went like this "You, The US, send us the 2 perps so that the Japanese judicial system doesn't look so bad and we will keep them here fed and happy for a few months, then they apologize in public and we will cut them loose." The Taylors will put this behind them, Japanese judicial system saves face and the US will look like they conform to the international agreements they did sign.

Olympics and economic benefits just don't go together unless you put IOC in the sentence as in "Olympics, IOC economic benefits"

60% vacancy and now they will act? I wonder how much sense of urgency there really is here...

Posted in: Most medical staff needed for Olympics secured: Endo See in context

What about the medical staff for when the Olympics end and all the Covid patients infected during the games come in? I just hope the Jgov has secured that too...

How about vaccinating the elderly and adults first. This is just more nonsense from JGov, we should be used to it by now...

Posted in: Japan decides not to procure insulin syringes for COVID-19 vaccinations See in context

20% more people could get vaccinated and the decision is NOT to use it. Sounds really fishy! How about we make sure the amount normally used is supplied and use the rest for the covid vaccine? Even if only seven syringes are used that means 2 extra people would get the shots.

Posted in: Website maps complaints of neighborhoods with noisy children See in context

they sprayed some insecticide indiscriminately and it was everywhere and came inside. Second, during some times of year they used some noise making machine to scare away birds that sounded like a shotgun. I almost went insane for lack of sleep.

Yes, the shotgun sound is a bit annoying, but they use it only around sunset and not so close to me, mostly I dislike it because I like the sight of the birds around. I have noticed the spraying as well we are fortunate that the land right around us is mostly unused, but there are times I see them spraying the fields and it is scary for I have no idea what they are. One part that was almost a deal breaker was the distance to the elementary school, a good 30 minutes walk, but the kids seem to enjoy the walk.

Posted in: Website maps complaints of neighborhoods with noisy children See in context

I just checked the link hahaha. 5 years ago I bought a house in the middle of agricultural land and sold my "Terrace Mansion" and I never looked back. It is really nice to have space for parking a lot of cars, having a big dog (great dane) and still enough space for the kids to run around and not worry about the neighbors. And it is not in a remote area by any means, there are restaurants, conbinis, schools etc within a 3 minutes car ride or a 10 minutes walk.

Posted in: 1,032 shots of COVID-19 vaccine wasted due to freezer malfunction See in context

Now that it's been approved to store Pfizer vaccine in a normal freezer for two weeks, is it impossible to have them into people's arms before that, in other words, less reliant on these special freezers?

Posted in: COVID-19 clusters break out in Hokkaido city as winter closes in See in context

"caution against predicting the contagion pattern seen in Hokkaido", why not? If you stay in an enclosed environment and the virus is inside, you will get sick.  

The only sure way to attack this is by testing and testing and testing. I can not understand why it is so difficult to get the gov implement it. Testing is way cheaper than having half the businesses closing down.

No info on how they will make it safe...

Posted in: Japan aims to revive tourism industry by subsidizing people to go on vacation See in context

I expect these vouchers and discounts to get you thru the doors of the big souvenir shops and tour stop restaurants, meaning that even if the stuff they were half priced I wouldn't buy any of it anyway.

All I really need, to go travelling again, is the sense of safety that we had before and that is going to take some time to come back. I will stick to the local day trips for a while, that is once my so decides it is safe to step out of the house.

Posted in: In Japan, pandemic brings outbreaks of bullying, ostracism See in context

This is really bad and it is happening all over Japan. People need to calm down. All I can think of is "I hope one day they will on the receiving side of some kind of bullying, maybe they will understand it and see how hurtful they were."

Posted in: Japan begins distributing cash handouts for virus relief See in context

As a foreigner we will receive this money as long as we have a valid 3 months or longer resident visa. It says nothing about how long one has actually stayed in Japan, prior to the cash application date. I would expect a bit of trouble if someone just got here and was issued a visa within a few days of getting the cash, not only for the system update lag but also for the amount of scrutiny this will generate and all the paper work each cityhall will have to keep.

Posted in: Tokyo launches coronavirus drive-through tests See in context

Nothing gets to the Japanese psych than to tell them that our friendly neighbor Korea, did something better. This fast testing has been shown on tv for weeks now but I am still waiting to see a working station in Japan.

Posted in: Gov't waiting for Golden Week to decide on extending state of emergency See in context

Here go my two cents... Japan will probably see a good portion of the country lifting the "lockdown" where the numbers of new cases are significantly low and have it instated back again if there clusters of new infections start to show up.

Even if your prefecture lift the state of emergency, your local gov will urge people to be careful witch will lead to most people still live like it is in a state of lockdown.

I don't think Japan will be in a lockdown until there are no new cases, but as soon as the numbers of new cases seem manageable local govs will open up.

Posted in: Q&A: How do I receive ¥100,000 from the government? See in context

This is a great help for struggling families, I hope this will reach the population soon. While I do advocate for financial security in form of savings, this crisis was too sudden and took all areas of the economy by surprise.

Good option, used around the world to have a place to keep mild cases from infecting more people at home. Bonus points if these hotels are close to a fully equipped hospital to treat the patients if or when the symptoms become more serious.

Posted in: Lawmaker expelled from party over hostess bar visit See in context

Moron! Isn't it suspected that quite a few cases of the "untraceable" cases of the virus were in adult establishments? The reason is that people would rather put more people in danger than tell the truth about their trips to the red light zone of Tokyo?
