yes, in my country we have academic year too, but starting in September. But kids are often joining during the year.

my country is kinda special. Having 3years maternity leave. Nursery

and KG for free. Having plenty choices of kindergarten and minimum kids on waiting list. It's hard to compare. Tough environment in Japan is causing people not to want have kids.

Now I am expecting my second child and Nurseries not being able to do tours sounds like wonderful news to me...

i hate these tours. Most of cities are forcing you to do that. To me check the website is enough. I am nursery teacher in Japan and I can tell you that behaviour of the teachers during the tour and during normal day are two different things.

I moved from one city to other, during the school year. Single mom. Forced to do tour during working days, 8schools and my child wasn't accepted in them. I end up to go shigai (what a waste of time). In my case everywhere is okay if it's safe for child and I can work without worries. It sounds like you have plenty schools to choose when reality is you will take the one they give you.

yes, you can write your preferences but in the end of the day your child is going where is place.

so what? yet you read every single article about it and comment same.

if it would be "so what" you wouldn't even bother to read it and comment on it. I am pretty sure that if one of those who tested positive was your family member you wouldn't go and say "so what" right?

you can not be serious.... I get it that you sympatize with all mothers who killed or tried to kill their babies...Regardless their status and circumstances: married/single mom, working/unemployed, trying drown or choke baby...trying to get rid of the child, leave child unattended and go work, leave child in the car and go to host club etc. you have been always in their place regardless circumstances...You can not be in shoes of every woman, it´s simple impossible even you write such comment under every single article related to this topic...Only one click on your nick and I just counted about 5 such comments...Sorry I don´t buy what you are selling.

she is married woman, who told husband that she is taking kids to parents' house so she could go to host-club. It was her hobby. Husband have his company, he was at home and had no idea what his wife was doing. She was spending night at male-friend house. Not working mother. Not single mother. Just young selfish woman. That's all. She could leave kids at parents' house but they wouldn't be so happy to see her having fun 4times a week, that's why she left kids in the car.

Posted in: Tokyo governor calls for restraint in travel during Obon holidays See in context

this is typical for culture of rather die than "losing face"...

based on this article what Abe says, what Koike says, what doctors and everyone says.

no lock down, but stay home. (keeping OH no matter what)

stay home but Go to trouble is still on...(it's dangerous but not that dangerous apparently no deaths, so what? -sarcasm)

i don't like many things in my country but when it comes to corona, all people who are entitle to make the talk about it go same direction.

i know most of the posters feel safe over no deaths. I think this will change in autumn/winter when cold, fewer, influenza will be actual. I am guessing if this happen most of the posters will go just "ups"

to be honest. I have PR, work, house, 1 kid in Japan and one more on way. With all of this I can't find a reason why I would go back to during corona season. It didn't cross my mind for even sec.

lucky you... I am jealous...

everywhere I go it's packed. 30people kept waiting in space 5mx2m leaving me hours of waiting and thinking about social distancing and playing the game "who has it"

i'm visiting hospitals and clinics because I have to. Even dentist packed more than usual.

yeah, I did received 10 Abemasks from shiyakusho today along with some papers about maternity harassment during corona season etc. I did sent that all back. They can figure out what to do with that ...

yes, it may be 14 day but symptom onset is on average 5-6 days and during those days you can just pass it to someone else.

ha again "some" number!

we know it's not the real number so let's keep calm on "low Mondays" and "high Thursdays, Fridays"...

"go to trouble" campaign is definitely paying off...but I think people are just getting used to life with corona that they are less careful...

(why to care?! No deaths...-being sarcastic here)

corona is going nowhere so we just have to adapt to that fact. Shouganai.

if you didn't understand my response to different comment I guess I can't help you. I did nothing you mentioned in your extremely long comment. All I said as a citizent of country what suffered US army, German army, Austria army, SU army is that during the war plenty tragedies happened and victims were everywhere all around the globe. Being neutral doesn't mean to be ignorant.

not sure what are you trying convey here. When it comes to war, there is no good army. I know it very well because I came from country caught up just in the middle in the both ww.

japanese army was as brutal as Germany and SU. If Japan had the atomic bomb what do you think they would do at that time? I think we all know...

feel sorry for all victims hope they can live as comfortable as possible for the rest of their lives.

not in Yamato, Sagamihara, Zama. I was surprised to see how many people don't know what "1pack only means"...

for some people 1 meant 2..3..4 as they were going with whole family and then split so each member of the family will get one pack per person. Reuniting outside with 3bonas packs... No Chinese tourists...Japanese hamsters

actually EU is criticized recently because all dead people are tested on covid19. If they find the virus even cause of death as car crash will be reported as "covid19 death" because they had the virus when they died.

then Japanese approch if it can be anything else than covid19 then it is anything else...that's why the death rate is lower in Japan...along with lower testing...

another "clever" idea...

go to travel...but nobody can really go (young and old folks and Tokyo residents excluded)

so let's make more "Abemasks" so popular that no-one wears them...

getting popcorn for next great idea... and can not wait for next tax rise...

i like the campaign BUT not in the current situation. If young and old people are advised to not to use the campaign then promised economic benefit won't be that great.

putting aside the fact that no-one really want to play game "who has it?" when it comes to family and friends.

good campaign, bad timing.

janeM2

Don't you see the difference?

a) lift restriction means go back to normal

and

b) making travel campaign when numbers are getting higher

btw I came from Europe and the restrictions you are talking about weren't even applied in Japan.

We had people arrested, fined and tested almost everyone. People in my country made masks and desinfections for not only their families but also for nurses, policemen, shop assistants, drivers.

and if you did read latest article it says is not for young and old folks so I really don't know what kind of economic profit you are expecting.

campaign is good but timing is bad. period.
