Allowing "Mizu Shobai" places to open and then having them close as 9:00PM seems a bit arbitrary and capricious.
It seems like the lawmakers were sitting around a table and someone suggested, "Having these places open all night, might not look right. What do you guys think ?"
"Good idea. Let's have them close early"
"How about 9:00PM"
"Perfect, 10:00 might appear to be too late, 8:00 is too early......."

I hate to complain about those in charge, who seem to be trying to do the right thing, but they do seem awful slow in getting folks vaccinated.
From what I have read, they seem to be very strict on who can do the jabbing. I wish they would allow retired medical professionals, pharmacists, med students and the medical personnel from the SDF administer the vaccines.
The strict adherence to guidelines does seem to be the Japanese way of doing things, but I wish they would make an exception just once when people's lives are at stake.

I forgot to add that a co-worker recently visited Taiwan on vacation in the above post.

Taiwan has been doing the same since the beginning of the pandemic and have had only 10 pandemic-related deaths with only 1004 reported cases. Of the 1004 cases, 959 have recovered.
Only those with a Taiwanese passport or those who have received special permission are allowed in the country. Upon arrival one must sign a form giving permission to the government health officials to install apps on their cell phone that will allow the health officials to monitor their location.
A 14- day quarantine at her residence was required. She received daily calls, and two in-person visits to her home from the health department during the 14 days.
After the 14 days she was free to move around.
People lie and cheat. The tracing apps are a minor inconvenience that keeps people honest. If you don't like it don't come to Japan.

The Mom, I believe, has completed her sentence.
Hopefully some sort of punishment is meted out to this man in prison by the other inmates and the guards look the other way.
He reportedly has anger issues, let him lose his temper against a man his own size for once.
Also, It would be nice to see the some sort of punishment given to the school board especially to her 担任先生、 the teacher who not only ignored her pleas for help, but betrayed her trust by showing the "Cries for Help Letter" to her step-father, whose actions upon seeing the letter resulted in her death.

The Taylors have been in jail in Boston since May; that's almost 10 months already. Will this period count toward their sentence in Japan if they are convicted?
It should. That is usually the case in the United States.
Since the defendants were detained at the request of the Japanese prosecutors it probably will, but who knows for sure.
If you can read Japanese you may be able to find an answer in 六法全書、刑事法。

Family Guy is racist, especially toward Asians, and for some unknown reason, Koreans. Fox knows better than to anger Blacks, but Asians still seem to be a target for their racism.
Family Guy gets away with it because, sans the racism, it is pretty funny.
There is probably a little Peter Griffin in all of us.

I cannot believe the incompetence of these men. I had thought that Mr. Kono was a cut above the rest, being educated abroad and seemingly a man with a proper dose of common sense.
Sadly I was mistaken.
If the Japanese people were not as sensible and smart as they are regarding safety the death toll would be a lot higher than it is with these guys in charge.

Mr. Mori's services are really not wanted at this time, he has contributed enough already.

I actually felt sorry for him for a minute when I read the headline.
But, then I thought of all of the women in Japan who are humiliated during their lives and made to think less of themselves by people who think, speak, and act like Mr. Mori.
Then I thought of all of the women whose lives and careers are ruined by people like Mr. Mori.
Then I though of the little girls who give up on their dreams, or who won't dream big because of people like Mr. Mori.
Glad he's gone.

I wish one of the reporters would ask Mori if the reason the meetings seem so long is because he is so old.
And then watch his reaction.

I wish they had more categories than just "Yes" and "No".
Like, "Absolutely, positively" or "No way, never, or even the somewhat cynical and a tad anti-social, "What a dumb question."

I love Japan, but her criminal justice system is hard to understand at times.
The courts seem to forget the victims, especially if they were children, when it comes to sentencing the guilty parties.
Mia Kurihara, and Yua Funato (as mentioned above) are two more that we should never forget.
I get that admission of guilt and showing remorse go a long way in a Japan court but only 9 years for starving a defenseless child to death, does not seem right to me.

Famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough in his excellent documentary now showing on Nextflix, "A Life on Our Planet" posits that the falling birth rate in Japan is due to its economic prosperity and suggests that if we start feeding the whole world a decrease in the birth rate will follow.
Many people from that generation (born before 1950) do not seem to understand that folks have a right to love whomever they want.
Assemblyman Shiraishi should resign. Adachi is a blue collar ward and its citizens deserve better than this ignorant, ill-bred fool.

Masks are only the symbol of oppression, silencing and an attempt to erase our identities. If it is indeed the symbol of this 'plandemic' it does not represent a lot of us.

Spot on analysis and great suggestions!
The only thing China and North Korea understand is the sword.
Figuratively speaking, As long as Japan and the United States can keep a sword at the throat of China and North Korea we should be able to avoid armed conflict.
I would love to see a huge buildup of our forces in Hokkaido to counter Kim and Xi.
If Biden is elected in November and Tammy Duckworth is VP we just may see that.

The athletes need to train so they could postpone them until October.
They could start them on October 11th which is Taiiku No Hi.

Cops have done their job, "Kenji san", convict him and of child abuse and begin legal proceeding to discontinue his parental rights, and "Okusama" please start divorce proceedings against this bum.

Up to a $5000 fine for hate speech!
Great idea. This shows Governor Tamaki's American roots.
A law w/o teeth is meaningless.
Anything to fight racism is a great idea.

This ridiculous proposal is possiblye meant to drive a wedge between the players that have time in and are highly compensated, and the "newer" players who are not compensated as well.
All players still assume the high risk of catching a disease for which there is no cure and can kill you. It just ain't worth it.
The owners and their families will prolly come no where near the ball parks.
I hope the Players Union rejects this outright.

November can't arrive soon enough.
It would be like divine retribution if he did not win one state.
I doubt if that will happen, but I will be happy to see a change of leadership in January 2021 and this long, long,
four-year nightmare over.
Then and only then will we make some really progress fighting this hideous disease.

It's really hard to find sympathy for AirBNB and the speculators who bought up properties to rent using AirBNB's platform.
They had a nice run for a few years. Maybe this will be the end of them.
As someone pointed out they are virtually unregulated, and the ads for the properties are many times misrepresented big time.
I will not miss them if they should fold.

If people of limited experience "can't grasp" or don't understand that a majority of these so-called "comfort women" willingly participated in the world's oldest profession, or were sold to brothels by their parent's both in Japan and Korea and are doing the same thing they did 80 years ago around the U.S. bases in Korea maybe they should study history of this so-called issue a little more.
There are almost no Korean protestors who had a relative that were forced to participate in this, and certainly no Westerners.
As someone else suggested, it is time to move on.
Hopefully this lady will get a lot of attention and shut some of these bigots up.

Finally a woman with credibility exposes this anti-Japanese rant by these money-grubbing Korean scalawags for the frauds that they really are.
Their only goal is to extort money from gullible Koreans. They could care less about the gals who actually experienced this. Anti-Japanese sentiment sells easily in Korea and many make a lot of money off of it.
Many of the so called, "comfort women" were young women who were sold to brothels by their families, also many of them willingly participated for pecuniary motives.
American bases in Korea now have the 2020 version of "comfort women" who work the bars and earn a living off of the American troops there.
Yesterday marked the 75th anniversary of VE Day and these greedy con men and women are still trying to make money off of the Japanese occupation.
I think a reasonable person would agree that enough is enough.
