Posted in: In Tokyo, some drink on despite gov't request for bars to close at 8 p.m. See in context

The break of the J-government from many people here in Japan doesn’t surprise me at all,I still see everyday many people maskless or wearing them incorrectly,these are the same type of persons that would care little of the others and go drink and eat like the pandemic is just a collective imagination.

This situation reminds me Aso words at the beginning of the pandemic when he stated that Japan's low virus infections and deaths reflect high 'cultural standards.

Empty words full of pride and without approaching the pandemic in a logical way.

Ali my sympathies goes to you and your family and I hope you guys can achieve your goal,after many years in Japan which is over a decade and a Japanese family we were already planning to move back to my country and then the Covid came,thanks the providence me and my wife are still young enough to rebuild something there,let’s hope this pandemic will be over.

What a pity that such a beautiful country like Japan with truly nice and positive things is ruled by such backward narrow minded politicians.

Posted in: Suga announces new measures to stem virus surge, including penalties, review of medical system See in context

So it took to Suga and the cronies at the helm months to slightly react to the pandemic and again with little logic like they showed before,the GOTO thing,then the ban resident foreignerd to return to Japan but allow only Japanese to re-enter breaking families and lives and now the COVID-Dracula new rules that urge shops to close after sunset because the virus comes out only at night,and on the top of that tone down the number of tests in order to keep their Olympics in the name of the pennies even if common sense would ask at least to postpone the thing for another year if not better cancel it.

This pandemic for sure shows the darkest side and ineptitude of many so called leaders in this country.

Posted in: Japan to halt entry of all nonresident foreign nationals See in context

I’m not surprised by this two measure of treatment for a Japanese citizen and let’s say a PM resident,the first one if commit a penalty will basically have a slap on the wrist the second one his life destroyed.

Closing momentarily the borders is something that I can understand in such situation and many civilized countries are forced to do so in such times but what worries me is about Japan,it has a history of self isolation and this is a perfect excuse for the Nippon Kaigi to finalize it’s dream of reverting the country back to “beautiful Japan” in a new Edo era where all foreigners are banned.

The situation for sure doesn’t look good.

Low tests for one of the most populated countries in the world.

These numbers can’t be trusted.

Posted in: Last trains in Tokyo area to leave earlier to help stem virus surge See in context

These moves won’t reduce the packed trains but will make last trains even more packed with people having less options,the whole Covid thing is handled so poorly in Japan,from the lockdowns to the transportations.

Posted in: Japan to expand virus state of emergency beyond Tokyo as cases top 300,000 See in context

So the Covid is a sort of witchcraft,according to the government it stays dormant during the day and then magically appears from the evening,if the situation wasn’t so dramatic we could almost laugh at this.

Absolutely not enough to even just contain the pandemic.

What a bunch of cynic cronies are the people at the helm of these Olympics.

They want to prioritize young and robust athletes health rather than the elderly or weak people.

I hope many countries will boycott such event.

I don’t believe in their propaganda and fake numbers anymore.

Everything is scaled down in order to save their precious Olympics.

Monty,so according to your thinking if a foreign lives in Japan for decades have a family,children raised in Japan he or she is still a guess??

I’m sorry that there are people like you with such a narrow and nationalistic mindset.

Home is the place where a human settle not necessary it’s birthplace.

Japan isn’t in a better situation than the European Union for the Covid.

It is and was the same,with the difference that European governments did massive tests compared to the Japanese government and with number of population half of the one of Japan.

The few tests they do in Japan shows a high percentage of infected and same as in the EU.

The indecision and the will to put corporations above human lives says it all.

Posted in: If you are a foreign resident (either permanent, long term or short term) of Japan, do you currently feel safer living here amid the coronavirus, or would you prefer to be in some other country? See in context

I would prefer Germany.

Because honesty,responsibility and transparency are what Merkel administration is giving to it’s people.

Years of heavy investments in social welfare also play a major role.

Merkel is competent about this field as well,unlike some other country that has a population which is way bigger than Germany but keeps the testing minimal and cares only for the Olympics and the big corporations and at the top of that in a period of a pandemic encourage it’s people to go to travel.

Posted in: Japanese beauty firm under fire over CEO comments on Koreans See in context

Source please,because your last part of your comment is innacurate.

Japanese,Chinese and Koreans,the genetic difference between any of the three groups is less than 1% of their total genetic diversity, which is much smaller than that between any of the groups and a European population 10%

And this is a written fact.

NihonviewToday  08:26 am JST

Just tell him that Japanese people came from Korean and Chinese people. Then watch his fat face go red.

and go tell the Korean and Chinese people came from Africa.

And again you contradict yourself,it seems that human evolution is not your field.

Japanese being part of the homo sapiens sapiens specie also come from Africa,because believe it or not we’re the same specie.

And actually they found out that sapiens that lived in Europe and Asia interbreed with the other last homo specie that was around until 30.000 to 40.000 years ago.

The homo nehandertalensis.

So all these racist comments come just from deep ignorance and fear to acknowledge facts.

The nihonjonro narrative is pure crap.

Posted in: China looks forward on anniversary of 1937 Nanjing massacre See in context

I think all massacres and genocides need to be reminded and commemorated.

The holocaust,the genocide of the Armenians,Stalin’s purge of million of people,or as the most recent ethnical massacre in the Yugoslavian war,as Nanjin that happened in the past,because it is a good way for us humans to remind ourselves that we should not commit such crimes anymore.

But also we have to stand our grounds for the silent genocides that happened very recently and are happening now,Tibet and the epuration of the Islamic and opposition of Communist China is something that is happening now.

The murder was horrible and the criminal deserves a harsh punishment.

Saying that death penalty is absolutely not the solution.

All the western and civilized societies got rid of this crude and medieval instrument besides besides Japan and some US states.

Well,in this case by march is not really that late,in many western countries it will begin in January,so for J-standards be only two months behind the others it’s something remarkable.

Let us hope that within these months the common sense will prevail and people try to avoid things like Go To whatever and packed places.

Amazing how just the other day the moderator erased my comment on a similar case just because I dared to ask what is wrong with Japanese men,so rather than take responsibility and work on improve this misogen society we should avoid any criticism.

Untill Japan doesn’t take the problem from the core starting from the way they look at women and from the teaching education we will have a country with many pervs.

Posted in: Japan pledges support to vaccinate Tokyo Olympic athletes See in context

Rainyday is correct about this,also to the fanboys I’m sorry to say this but the vaccine is developed mainly by west companies,US-German cooperation.

Though there are others that are still in development.

For sure it won’t be Japan to give the vaccine to these athletes.

But in the end the whole Olympics are not in the world agenda right now except for some cold blooded bureaucrats .

They need to keep the propaganda high and show the best of their fake tatemae to the developing nations.

Hypocrisy as it’s best and all this non sense Olympic payed with our money.

So they set up this health monitoring centre for tourists but leave the foreign residents that pays taxes in a limbo.

Perfect move to keep the tatemae for the world and the honne for the foreign community within their border.

Posted in: Study links Go To Travel campaign to increased COVID-19 symptoms See in context

Researchers in Japan found a higher incidence of COVID-19 symptoms among people who have participated in a domestic travel campaign promoted by the government, suggesting that it is contributing to a spread in the virus.

And they needed a panel of “expert” to reach such conclusion that even a ten years old kid knows?

I wonder how many meetings did they need to get into this.

And then some fanboys wonder why Japan is seen by the west as weird.
