You mean sift through Facebook articles until you find one that backs up your conspiracy theories?

Everything that is great about Japan has absolutely nothing to do with Suga or the Olympics.

Saw Olympic merch at the supermarket tonight, 50% off! No one wants it!
tempted to buy some because it might be a collectors item one day for the failed olympics.

Why does it always have to be a left versus right argument?

This whole situation has felt like a kid that has a party at his house while his parents are away. Now he's kindly asking his guests to not wreck the house. If you've seen any movie with this premise, you'll know the house is always destroyed.

Someone linked the wikipedia article about the cost of funeral in Japan the other day.
Seems extremely predatory, 500000 yen just for the priest. It says nowadays there are cheap services for 200000 yen, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are a LOT of people in Japan that can't even afford that.
Not saying what she did was right, but I can totally understand it. If she was living in the same house as her EX husband for 20 years it's safe to assume they weren't exactly wealthy.

You have managed to make Tokyo the best-ever prepared city for the Olympic Games
Yeah, short quarantine, 5 star hotel, sightseeing down in Hiroshima, not to mention all the free food and other things he'll be enjoying. I'd say Tokyo prepared a wonderful holiday for Bach.

I hope the local media is reporting on that. The least they could do is wear masks.

Without details it's totally speculation, but the group could have been invited to someone's apartment and later one of them started acting psycho and the cops were called.
Total speculation but it could explain why they were tested for drugs.

It's all so tiresome. I was holding out some hope of being able to visit home this Christmas. Every day it seems there is less chance of that happening.

Why are they so obsessed with the drinking after 8 rule?? How about no commuting after 6am? No face to face meetings on any days ending in 'Y'.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to a great summer vacation. I'll be avoiding crowds, but there's no way I'm staying home and watching the olympics, that would be awful.

Even in my rural mountain area, going outside feels like leaving a biodome on a distant planet, braving the inhospitable environment, in search of water.
I love Japanese summers for fishing and swimming in the mountains. But it's too hot to even play golf during that time.
What a mess!

Great to see articles around the world like this. I hope to see more and more, the words and actions of the jgov and IOC have been atrocious. I hope other countries will look at how the IOC will treat them before they decide to host the parasite.

How can you be so bad at your job?
When I was a teenager working at KFC I was under more pressure to keep chicken supplies up. Friday nights the manager would nearly have a nervous breakdown waiting for the chicken to finish cooking. These guys in charge of the vaccines face no consequences or pressure to keep things going.

LOL! Chemical free... just steroids, HGH, protein powders, creatine and god knows what else for these elite chosen ones

People won't have anywhere to go because of the state of emergency so there will be a lot of them watching at home on TV.
LOL. The soe is just bars shutting after 8pm, what does this guy think people do during their summer vacation? Well maybe this is the life of the average LDP voter.

Just get them over with already. I hope the day after the closing ceremony he starts taking the virus and vaccinations seriously.

Mono with a string section would be amazing. I would definitely have wanted to attend the opening ceremony if they were playing.

This is embarrassing and pathetic, but it's going to be 100X worse with the Dragon Quest and Evangelion music playing to an empty stadium in a few days.

What's the crime here? Too many friends? Thousands of people travel on roads everyday.

What a mess. Instead of focusing on defeating corona and then focusing on a great Olympics now corona is out of control and the Olympics are likely to me the lamest ever. Another summer season spoiled by our totally inept and useless leaders. The jgov has absolutely failed at everything, absolutely pathetic.

The headline could say 'Government set to bankrupt all bars in Tokyo' and it would have the same meaning.
A snack in my neighbourhood blocked out their windows, unplugged the sign outside and stopped doing karaoke, but they are still very much open for business. It sucks they've been driven to that due to being unfairly targeted and unsupported through this time.

I cannot begin to comprehend what a driver in their late seventies would be feeling
I'd guess he was feeling rather drunk. If I see an elderly driver sticker or a white kei farm truck I just assume they've been sipping Ozeki One Cups all day. I've had so many near misses over the years.

He always wants to damage the peoples well deserved holiday, but he never calls out for a cancelation of the Olympics.
Right on man, I am so tired of this approach. Cancel all fun and relaxation, but keep all the commuting, meetings and money making events.
I've got a trip planned this summer. Last year I didn't go anywhere because of the virus. Heck it. It's going to be here in Japan for a long time and we'll be doomed to commute to work and face to face meetings whether we stay home and social distance or not.

These lockdowns must be annoying (thought effective) but the situation isn't much better here.
I couldn't buy a beer at a mountain rest stop, can't have a bbq by the river, and it's quite difficult to find campgrounds that aren't closed this summer. Japan has been in a fun and relaxtion lockdown for over a year.

Nah, he's an oversensitive baby. Neighbours should have the courtesy to not slap others. Hope this guy goes to jail for assault.

Old men with no job, hobbies, friends, family or anything to do but sit in their apartments with the AC off, stewing over their own bitterness at life. 4:55pm on a Sunday... the sound of others laughing must hurt.
