I guess they felt the did enough economic damage to their enemies for now. More coming in more ways than one. Interesting war tactics. Torturing your own population to destroy your enemies economically so they won’t be in a strong enough position after the Taiwan invasion.

Reasons I left Japan.
the country of Covid hystria and their obsession with SAFE.
1 ( +16 / -15 )
That would be ideal Mark.
if you are working in Japan and are being paid the same salary as last year, you have taken a 20 to 30% pay cut.

Well the pasted several years have t been ideal for dating in Japan. I doubt it has gotten much better.

Pretty soon they’ll force the kids to cover their faces in public too… oh wait.

While in Japan, the agencies will transport tour participants found to be infected with the novel coronavirus to medical institutions and support them until they leave the country.
Oh support you by locking you in a hotel and forcing you to leave the country. So hospitable of them!
-3 ( +8 / -11 )
Don’t go people. They will lock you up even if they think you have Covid. Go somewhere else where you can actually enjoy yourself.
-1 ( +14 / -15 )
Wear a mask, turn the air conditioner off and don’t go out after 8:00. Some country…
8 ( +12 / -4 )
This is exactly why I said don’t go to Japan for a tour. They don’t want foreigners coming messing up their COVID utopia. They will lock you in a hotel, force you to wear a mask and won’t let you go anywhere you like by yourself. I hope they enjoy cold bentous an constant calls from the front desk asking about their condition.

I agree. This is a major reason I left Japan. Lived there for almost 20 years. It was great and the people are nice but the obedience to the government and believing the television is a reliable source of information has put me off. It’s not their fault, they are just in this safe bubble and most men don’t stand up for anything. Just do what your told and avoid confrontation as much as possible. I had plenty of Japanese tell me how sick of wearing the masks but they never take initiative and just do as other do out of fear of being called out.
its not changing until a strong opposition happens and it won’t until the television says so.
16 ( +29 / -13 )
So we see the real reason the government does not want foreigners coming into Japan. This has not been the first time. They haven’t changed since Edo.

I’ve been waiting for the Japanese to start this debate.
Take them off the kids at least.

Old guys running stuff thinks the old tricks work. Japan needs an overhaul of their government but “the elders are always right” is embedding in their culture.
yen will be around 145 to a dollar by fall or sooner if they don’t stop giving handouts and keep their rates low.

Omg I am so surprised the numbers go down when the weather is warmer and the numbers go up when the weather changes from hot to cold.
What does the media think? Do they think we are stupid or are they stupid?

Virusrex over simplifys with made up numbers.
If you are a healthy person under the age of 70 with no comorbilities there is absolutely no reason to take the mRNA experimental shot as there has already been deaths and permanent life threatening side effects. And as it is experimental and has not been independently tested (only the companies that created it says it's safe and effective) we still have no knowledge of the long term side effects. We do know that other experiments using mRNA technology that were used on mice, most of the mice died within a few months and was suggested that much more testing needed to be done/ not safe for human. Unfortunately these new vaccines have not been properly tested and you take it at your own risk.
I understand it's hard to get the right information these days because of all the fact check sites that take a claims twist that claim into and obviously fake claim and debunk their own fake claim, while burying the real claims that prominent scientist have said about the mrna shots and the virus. You must dig deep and use precision these days to find the truth. You definitely won't find it anywhere on this website. Do your own research, it's a big decision.
Fog of war.

The demand is low for these vaccines. I know a doctor that works at a local center and they only allow 50 old people a day citing "social distancing" so it makes an illusion that there is some high demand and hard to get reservations.

Covid has given the japanese government it chance to show its real authoritarian head. The only thing that held back the japanese government from becoming a tyrrany is the constitution implemented after the war. The government here would snap right back to an even worst tyrrany than china if it ever gets it's chance.
1 ( +2 / -1 )
This was always what it was about. Tyrrany always comes in the guise of safety and "patriotism." They try to sell this as if it is a Japan government for Japanese, when it's just a reversal into a neo feudalistic society.
0 ( +1 / -1 )
Good. Keep that crap out of our kids arms.
-22 ( +20 / -42 )
Oh and just to be clear, there is a very limited number of people who can be vaccinated per day. Depending on the size of the center it's anywhere from 50 to 100.
I know this fact because I teach a doctor who works at one of these centers. It's all fake supply to cause demand.
In the elderly community it is a status symbol to have gotten a reservation to take the vaccine. It's all the hype. They talk about it all the time; if your only resource is tv, I guess it's basically all you can think about.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
No. I know how it works. Been here for 20 years. Most people I talked to don't want it.
Ofcourse your right about the old people, they are glued to the TV and still think everything to TV says is accurate. They still source the tv for all their information. The thinking folks I know will wait and see what happens as they are smart enough to understand side effects can come much further down the line.
I already got one of the companies I work for offering me a vaccine. I'm a gaijin so I can say no thanks, but most japanese say how high when their life time employer offers them anything.
-5 ( +1 / -6 )
I believe the cycles are at 43-45.
I think the warm weather has more to do with it, but you are correct, the cycles are way too high.
Also more test centers popped up at major cities at train stations the past few months. I think that added to it as well; more test, higher numbers.
In all it was a big push to convince people to take the vaccine. Yet the japanese general public wouldn't take them on their own so they now have given access to companies to push them on there employees. Unlike Americans who would go and get their vaccines independently, japanese usually need a push to do anything their government wants them to do, they use their employers. This is also true with picking a candidate for elections; usually employers tell their employees how to vote.
It's all been war gamed well and if I was working for the vaccine companies this is what I would suggest to do as well.

Japan culling their old population, from the culture that would bring their grandma to the top of the mountain to die. Ofcourse you cant do that anymore, this is more efficient, brainwash them into thinking they are gonna died and put a deadly mrna soft kill shot and they'll all be dead in a few years. I just wonder how the hospitals will deal with the sudden influx of patients with brain and heart problems when they could barely take care of cold with a 99 percent survival rate. Doom.

Alot of countries dumping these dangerous vaccines on eachother.

Bjorn, the most definitely get some compensation. The word volunteer doesn't hold the same meaning as many japanese from english words do.
-2 ( +1 / -3 )
Don't believe the media spin. They pulled out because of less hours and less chance to practice their English. Or even so most likely they were asked to quit because the help isn't needed.
If they were afraid of the virus they would stay home. I don't see anyone staying home because of the virus. Practically no one is afraid.
