Stormy year ahead for Japan's tourism industry

Perhaps the word "Japan's" to "The."

I think there are other countries in the world suffering from this, maybe even more than Japan?

What’s behind Japan’s surprisingly low coronavirus numbers?

Let’s see......lack of testing people, ignorance, hiding numbers, worrying about the olympics (only japan and the IOC care about it, really), Abe, fake news from the Japanese media, denial, Koike, people that don’t pay attention to world news, people that don’t pay attention to anything that doesn’t directly involve them, corrupt government, stupidity, Aso, incompetency, etc etc etc.........

If this is the biggest problem for these people, they really need to rethink their life choices. I'm sure there are a lot bigger problems everyone should be worried about right now.

some carrying a price tag of 170 million yen ($1.5 million).

Hmmm, that means one must have been pretty well off to afford one of these places, huh?

That sucks for people who invested in these properties, I guess?

Oh well, don't mind me. I'll just keep on eating my one rice ball and small 1oo yen coffee for lunch.......

I'm a fan.

But hopefully someone as famous as he is, getting the virus will wake up some people and give them a sense of reality.

All these people living in a fantasy world, need to realize that this thing is for real!

I love Japan. It's such a fantasy land where the skies are purple and street lights are blue..............

Please watch the world news people! There's a whole lot of fake news happening in Japan. There is a real world out there. Pay attention!

Respondents cited children's mental stress from changes to their daily routine as well insufficient exercise as among their major worries...............

Children have no stress. The only stress given to them are monster nagging parents and teachers who have no business working with kids.

I can guarantee that not one child is worried about NOT getting sufficient exercise........

One parent even asked for help, saying food expenses had doubled because of the need to provide lunch. 

Yeah, it's called providing for your young ones. If you can't give them a proper lunch, you need to rethink your lifestyle. Or at least wrap it up, snip it, or tie it up. Whatever needs to be done to never reproduce again.

The pair’s nocturnal investigations of each others’ bodies was eventually exposed when a third party found out about them and reported the situation to higher ups last month, and the two have admitted to the accusations.

So, how did this third party find out and who was it?

Aside from the relationship being against police regulations, the incidents took place when no other officers were on duty in the koban, meaning that if someone had come in with an emergency, they would have had to wait for the sergeant to pull out and the pair to get dressed before doing any actual police work.

Good use of tax payers money. Thank you police.

The J cops don’t like anyone to do their job but them...

So that means, no one else is allowed to check their smartphone or sleep inside of their office?

damaged the car of Kyoka Mase, 25

I think this name is spelled wrong. There should be a $ in it. "Ma$e"

Izuta was quoted by police as saying that he had been drinking prior to the incident. 

So the unemployed guy was drunk before 9PM? Well, lock em up and throw away the key. He was definitely not practicing Social Distancing.

Posted in: No. of suicides in Japan at historic low in 2019 but more teens kill themselves See in context

Though the police did not give any reason for the decline, an improving economy has undoubtedly helped, and a suicide prevention program is apparently bearing fruit.

That's because the police are useless.

Well, so much for the improved economy. What else we got?

Posted in: Japan's exports fall; imports from China slump as virus impact widens See in context

The Japanese economy doesn't rely on international trade. Most goods and services are domestically produced and consumed within the country.

Walk into Daiso, and check how many things are made in Japan and how many are made in China or another country.

Or any other store for that matter.

Tom, you've been entertaining me since I was a kid and throughout my lifetime. I've been a fan since you were the crazy uncle on family ties.

Praying for only the best to happen. I hope you and your wife will recover from this and entertain future lives and young minds well past this whole situation is over with.

Koike, you too much meng.

Here's an idea, why not worry about IMPORTANT issues?

Telling people whether they should have or not have hanami parties is a complete waste of time. People will do what they want. They don't need government officials to give guidelines on how to enjoy their leisure time. Stop wasting time with trivial things, and focus on the real problems.

Some Japanese fret more over economy and virus than Olympics

> By MARI YAMGUCHI and HARUKA NUGA

Hmmm, this is news to me. Thank you for such informative knowledge.

Now that you mention it, I agree. People should worry about everyday things that affect their lives in every way possible.

Not just some one time event that will fill the pockets of corrupt politicians and big company leaders and no one else.

This news has changed my perception on life all together. MInd, blown!

Well, hopefully this fool dies slow. Or at least alone somewhere in a ditch.

It's one thing to affect people unknowingly, it's another to be a complete turd monkey and go around casually spreading your virus around.

Again, authorities, people like this, get a picture of them and give out names, so people can be aware of such a lowlife.
