A strong distrust toward the Japanese government, the IOC, the Olympics, the media (especially major news papers all of whom shamelessly chose to become Olympic sponsors.), athletes, and sports world as a whole. We should not blame athletes? I don't think so. They are also the ones who put their own personal interest before everyday people's life and well-being. I don't and will never get 'energy' or 'courage' or 'inspiration' from these people. LOL

“We’re starting to reach a point where we can’t even cancel anymore,” she said.
That's not the main point of what she said!
She said , "Most Japanese are raising skepticism and concerns about the Olympics, but IOC, the Japanese government and JOC all keep ignoring their voices. Dialogue is a basic requirement for peace-building. If they reject talks, there is no value in the Olympics. "

It should be noted that Kyodo News has a deep ties with Dentsu. It is the second largest share holder of Dentsu. Kyodo News is not the only news publisher that has manipulated poll questions. NHK and Yomiuri, also under the influence of Dentsu, did the same in their recent polls. They all stopped asking whether the Games should be further postponed. Instead they provided more options for holding the Olympics: at full capacity? limited capacity? or no spectators?

There is very important information missing in this article. Mori asked Kawabuchi to take over his position. That move met an outcry not only because Kawabuchi is older than Mori, not only because there is absolutely no right for a sexist person kicked out of a committee to pick his successor, but also because Kawabuchi put his foot in his mouth (or he might just be a complete idiot) and told reporters he was going to appoint Mori as a consultant for JOC after becoming the chairman. In this article, it looks like Mori stepped down quietly, but far from it! Using Kawabuchi as his puppet, Mori had been trying hard to stay on power till the very end!

Bach should let his grandchildren stay in Tokyo during the Games if he thinks there is no reason to cancel it.

It's interesting that Murakami's insight is making the headline exclusively on Japan Today, with a bit of introductions to his famous works. I wonder how many readers value a comment of a fiction writer when we are on the verge of explosive infection serge.

people should enjoy going out while taking precautions
That's exactly what this 'article' is trying to rub off on readers.
ZERO comments whatsoever from people who chose not to travel.

It's amazing that no opposition parties, no newspapers have been bashing the stupid Go To campaign. It's a healthy sign of democracy.

Why is it that the media continues to make a fool out of us by not mentioning the number of test subjects when updating daily new cases? Our view would be totally different if 58 people took the test and 58 people came out infected.

What's taking them so long to do the documentation work?
Individuals can be easily identified by their 'my number' now.
All you need is a copy of my number card, and maybe some supplementary ID card such as drivers license, and bank info.

Who would use these filthy masks made in China? I bet the government is hiding way more terrible contamination than human hair.

To help spread a sense of urgency, Koike said Tokyo would begin using social media such as YouTube and TikTok to announce daily infection numbers, with celebrities dispensing public-service messages.
Does it really have to use 'celebrities' to get across the message? It's so annoying to watch stupid comedians speak on behalf of the government and make money out of it.
