"The National Center for University Entrance Examinations allows those who cannot wear facial masks for health or other reasons to take the exams in a "separate room" so long as they ask to do so in advance."

Maybe to him the toilet is the separate room. Maybe he needs CV19 tested ASAP.

"Okinawa hosts some 54,000 American troops who often find themselves at odds with locals"

When I was stationed there, once I left out the main gate, I could see the hateful stares from the JN Flops, the many Japanese only establishments. IMO It seems they all just wait complicity for you to make a wrong move , so they can hem you up. That can be very stressful.

I also remember being passed up by many taxi drivers. So me and by base buddies would then go off base in small groups, just for "backup and witnesses, The women present little problem from my experience, its usually he other side. The Japanese working on base are pretty much ok, because the US base police are very active.

One good thing is if there is a problem , the base police will come out and verify the circumstances, and make a report as well, to ensure no hanky panky by the nationals is involved. Almost forgot, they do have JNs there off base who try to setup troops, or provoke, etc, that's why off base we use the buddy system, with fast access to base police.

This Jar-head, has messed it up for Americans, particularly military in Japan, although the JN authorities will fry him, but it wont be enough, understanding the JN culture , it will be brought up for decades.

Trump will probably have to come back, bow down and apologize for it, if he will, and the wing nuts will start doing what they do...and more curfews, and more trip advisories, and alerts will go out.
