@pepepopo It's not cumulative. Look at the graph. It goes down. If it was cumulative, it would go up and up, and would shower slower rate of increase over time. Highschool stuff I guess.

Cases Requiring Hospitalization 330,661

If those numbers are true. This is not over at all.

Maybe they can loan them 100million usd at usdjpy=130, and then when it gets to 150, ask them to pay back + interest and then Japan govt makes a nice profit on this.

Shows how Japan is controlling the virus well with masks. Vs a country where no masks are worn.

I will keep my mask on a bit longer.

The only Japanese car company fully jumping into EV market. Has a good chance if you ask me. Their designs is also a lot more progressive when compared to Toyota.

Toyota is the most reliable, I get it, but Nissan, Honda, Mazda, and Subaru all make good cars. Buy from a dealer, they will take care of you.

Better than the other boring youtubers, like check out the 7-11 snacks. Going to sushiro, check out my tokyo apartment. blah blah blah. Japan wants rich foreigners to come to live in Japan, and promote it. Even if you are not rich, if you promote Japan in a positive interesting light, they look at things differently.

I want this guy to ball out in Japan, and make fun content. Racing the shinkansen in my ferrari.

10,000 yen a plate sushi train restaurant. Youtuber gateball contest. eating contest with that one skinny girl who eats like 12 bowls of ramen in 10 minutes.

Posted in: Gov't says masks not needed outdoors if distancing maintained See in context

Masks were always optional in Japan anyway. You just got weird looks from people if you did not partake.

People will still wear them. And when cases start going up, the govt will advise us all to wear them again.

It is a never ending cycle.

This plan is otsukare.

take less money or hope your staff make contacts while working a second job. Who are these people? Why don’t you just have 3 days a week 12 hours a day. Because I currently do 4 x 12 hour days a week and 1 x 10 hour a week now.

Nice to see numbers down, but far from over.

Take off masks like the USA did too quick, and too easy to see the same pattern as they are facing.

Indeed Japan had omicron later, and the BA2 variants were merged a bit together.

Posted in: Wakayama Prefecture pulls out of bid to host casino resort See in context

this is just a deal to increase big money gambling from overseas tourists.

The casinos will be charging something like a 8000yen per person head tax. Certainly enough to discourage your usual pachinko loving oyaji, and denshi tabacco smoking part timer with a gambling addiction.

Japan has to allow more tourists to help the economy at this point.

I don't use cash anymore, so I need to be careful about this. I only use payment apps or bitcoin.

Bought my last car here with bitcoin. Much easier than carrying cash to the dealer.

Good to see the Stealth Omicron has not exploded yet.

I have been getting compliments on my mask recently from a variety of members of the opposite sex.

If it keeps up, I may just keep on my mask for a bit longer.

Two grids is smart. Tokyo goes down, but Osaka and Aichi can still make takoyaki and cars.

Never been an inconvenience to me.
