Posted in: Miyagi Prefecture to grant workers leave to take care of grandkids See in context

There is no comprehensive childcare in Japan, parents are on waiting lists for months with no guarantee of a place until the last minute. I hope the governments and local bodies would prioritize provision of childcare as a standard instead of always expecting families to provide the care - great for some families but the system has needed to catch up with global standards for decades. This is a nice headline but distracts from the fundamental issues that need to be resolved.

Biggest faction = biggest influence on policy.

With Kishida that looks like a clear return to the status quo, with Abe able to call the shots.

The priority should first be to allow foreign permanent residents in exactly the same process as for Japanese nationals. These are the ones with strong ties and existing commitment to Japan, who are paying taxes.

Then they might consider tourism if there could be a safe way to manage it while the virus is still circulating.
