Japan now finds itself at a critical stage in this pandemic. Its failure to contain the virus compared with other developed nations, slow rate of vaccination, closed borders, and mismanagement by all level of government are reflected in these high numbers. All the public can do is continue to social distance, wear a mask, wash their hands thoroughly and stay home.

Very worrying. Unlike other countries Japan has failed and still battles to bring the coronavirus numbers under control within its local population. Perhaps quasi emergency measures should be reintroduced and restrictions placed on businesses. Individuals need to social distance more, wear a mask, wash their hands and stay home. Take care everyone.

This decision will cost the LDP votes at upcoming elections. It seems the majority of Japanese support the ongoing closure of their borders to the foreigner tourists indefinitely. The coronavirus cannot be allowed to spread again.

Japan still struggles to get the coronavirus under control while most of the developed world has moved on.

Keep washing hands, wearing masks, social distance and stay home.

The “Quiet Car” on the train, which doesn’t exist in Japan, although carriages are generally quiet anyway.

Generally quiet? Yeah maybe. But I've had some shocking bullet train rides with loud obnoxious drunks and women clapping and laughing raucously non stop for two hours.

Important for JT readers to know more details of his racist language and attacks. Reports in Japan are too filtered.

Only 90 items? Dude's in the minor leagues compared to others caught.

My heart truly aches for Mr Matsunaga. The strength he has shown since the incident is incredible.

I think I read somewhere at the time of the incident that Iizuka didn't even need to be driving that day as at his age and as part of his retirement benefits he had access to a government driver within Tokyo and surrounding environs.

I also didn't like the way Iizuka was treated with kid gloves and what appeared to be respectfully (people bowing, guiding him etc ) by the authorities and police when they bought him back to the incident scene last year to go through what had happened.

RIP Mana and little Riko and my continued deepest sympathy to Mr Matsunaga.

Even in Japan celebrities seem to know best. Run for office if you think you can do better. The Japanese are more than happy to have the LDP as their rulers otherwise they wouldn't vote for them.

I have no idea what to deduce from all of these numbers anymore except that according to the J media Japan has done much better at curbing the impact and number of deaths connected to the virus.

Osaka number well up over 2000 today. Weather improved this afternoon so local supermarkets and parks were a little busier.

The usual several maskless oyajis were able to enjoy a few cup sakes and no name beers at the "Eat in space" again in the Aeon supermarket.

Good to see things under control in Kanto. Little sense of emergency. Some family members visited Tokyo Disneyland and the Skytree amongst other attractions this weekend. They reported that it was not too crowded, social distancing optional, plenty of masks worn as chinstraps. Lucky buggers are off to Okinawa tomorrow!

Yep. I was right. Looks like the number of cases peaked last week. The Olympic is over and the foreigner has left. The number of cases will continue to go down. Good job Tokyo!
