they should just open up the borders again and wouldn't need to use that money ...

I'd actually want to hop on the first flight to Japan when they open up again as it is probably so much better without bad behaving tourists.

There are Currently at least 5 different studies from around the world which I know of an ALL of them say that actuall numbers were probably ~4 - 50 times higher then officially known !
2 of them from Germany one saying x4 (kupferzell) made by the RKI and one from Heinzberg made by a Virologist who is against most Corona measures who found out that x15-20 times from the official numbers should be correkt.
1 from London saying 10 times the ammount would be correct (from 300k to 3.4 million)
1 from Ischgl saying something about 50 times the ammount if I understood correct or was it 50% of all ppl living there ? sorry would need to look it up again to verify but you should check it up yourself anyways to make sure ;)
and last one I know of was made in Italy, Bergamo where they said that 50% of the population was infected as well even though they thought it was much less.

I am not a big fan of opening the borders.
I always said, keep the borders close and dont let imported Corona cases come into Japan.
The Borders should have never been closed ... its not like that helped at all -.-V
You are saying pretty much the same as most Countrys pointing fingers, this is a stupid Virus, it won't just magically stop at a countries boarder.
Of course an Island state like Japan has better chances then most other countries to somehow close themselfes off from the rest of the world but as you still NEED to trade as no country is 100% self sustaining (including things you don't need to survive but which still are asked for).
Currently Germany is pointing their finger at people coming back from hollidays which are possible within Europe again already even though statistically more people get infected inside Germany then outside while at their hollidays. Still everyone need an "enemy" and it is easier to say that the others are at fault

How many of these people do at least "feel ill" ? and do I get it right, they were put into a Hospital because they are infected and not because they are in a bad shape or anything ?

Take a look at the yasukuni website someday (if you can read Japanese). The perspective is that Japan was a victim in ww2 and not responsible for the war. Basically the same political views as our right wing friends.
My Japanese isn't good enough for this but at the Shrine itselvese there are actually translated texts saying something different ... well they don't say that the war was their fault but the main thing is that they are "praying" for ALL the people who have fallen and by far not only their own.

Very good descission !
The whole world pretends that there is nothing except Covid19 anymore.
The aftereffects of all useless attempts to stop the Virus will hurt humanity as a whole much more and much longer then Corona would have done.
Just look how many people die every day because of others stuff ... so much more .... covid19 is only an incredibly small fraction and still everyon is fixated on that one thing while in Antarctica it is 30+ degree and all the Ice is Melting and so on :/

Sorry math early in the morning ... for my example its not less then 1 but a litlte bit less then 2 more then average a day.
The Whole USA has ~7000 deads a day in Average ... okay 150.000 since January are still very much, if not mistaken about 700 or 10% extra a day ... you would Probably notice that but still it is only a very minor fraction of the whole population which is about 330.000.000
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
Well I guess most peopple understand that it is not "harmless" BUT most media try to make it look much worse then it actually is, especially comparted to a lot of others things people die from.
In a Country like Japan with its 120.000.000 people the average number of people that die EACH DAY ! is ~ 3000 ! compare that to 300 people that died that actually had Covid19 ( not even 100% that this is the reason they died ) since January ... that is less then 1 person extra a day ... hardly noticable at all ...
Okay other Countries like the US got hit worse and I can accept that wearing a Mask and beeing more Distant is actually one Reason why Japan got less deads but still people should be carefull about getting to much Panik.
In Afrika there are 2.000.000 Kids every year that die because they can't get enough food or clear water but noone cares and noone makes a fuss as they do because of 666.000 people that died Worldwide while having Covid19 (again not proven that this was the reason all of them died)
-5 ( +2 / -7 )
Still hope they will let tourists in soon again
Corona is everywhere in the World so who cares if you get ill in Japan or anywhere else ... I'd like to be able to do pretty much whatever I like to do again withouth any restrictions.
People that are especially endangered or just scared could always protect themselves as good as they can like workig from home and doing their shopping online .. I get all my food and drinks sent as I don't want to wear a mask as long as I am not ill .... should definietly be possible for most people at least in the first world countries.

So any usefull informations available ?
Like how much will it cost to stay there?
possible to get there withouth a car ? I read that you said that there are trainstations somewhere but looking it up on google maps it looks like it will take very long to walk from the closest train station (if I found the correct place as "uga valley" can't be found)
Might be interesting to go if there are some more nice locations to visit nearby.

As long as most of them hardly feel sick or anything who cares ?
I don't see the Problem, as the Article states, most of these people are very young and worldwide there is a super small ammount of young people that actually died because of Corona.
They should try to protect the Seniors as good as possible and let everyone else do whatever they want.
I doubt that the numbers Worldwide are accurate anyways, there are many studies that "prove" that there are way more infected then known. There was one in Germany, Heinzberg that assumed about 15% more then known then there was one in Austria, Ischgl where they said that about 42% of all the people in town had Antibodies ! so at least 42 were infected, probably more as some other studies show that not everyone who was infected has intibodies plus some "loose" them after a short while again.
Then there was an American one, made on a WarShip where they also had numbers about 30-40% and just recently there was the newest one (forgot where it was made) that had numbers around 50%
So even if Tokyo only has 10-20% of the population infected withouth knowing it would be more then a Million and hardly anybody died out of the norm. (you know places like tokyo have about 500 people or more dieing every single day due to age or illness)

2.9% jobless rate in a country with labour shortage ...
I guess the problem is not that there are no Jobs but like in most first world countries the people are to "good" to do some jobs

Kinda doubt it ... they asked Germany for a rather high rise and now Trump wants to withdraw troups (which most people in Germany are happy about, except for the few towns that loose money that they would have gotten trough the soldiers) and it would be funny if he wouldn't have asked/demanded more from Japan as well ...
Sooner or later Trum will try to get more money from Japan as well if it didn't happen already and Japan is kinda in a pinch with a strong and very agressiv China so close to it.

It’s not the bugs I’m worried about, it’s the virus!
Worldwide there are officially about 430.000 People that died and there are 7.700.000.000 Humans on this Planet .... (less then 0,001% died)
In Africa alone there are yearly ~2.000.000 CHILDREN that die of starvation ... (~0,003%)
Look at those numbers and think again
Maybe you should lock yourself up and never go outside again ?

I think it doesn't sound bad BUT why would you do that ? It is not like you would save any carbon hydrates or calories using noodles instead of a proper pizza dough ...
In my country there are lots of different recieps where they tried to make low carb pizza like using broccoli or lentils or any kind of beans ... still nothing beats a proper pizza

I totally agree with Australia!!! Good job!!! Google and Fakebook are exploiting the whole naive world!!!
You know they are kinda advertising the newspapers and so an for free there ... if they would just remove them the ravenue of these news pages would go down very much which is why most countries that had the same Idea came to the conclusion not to do it.

Japan is already "the?" country with the highest debt of all first world countries by head.
It is not possible to close down for a long time as it will destroy the futures of many many people.
Of course caring for the ones that are in danger is important but caring for the far bigger group that isn't in any actual danger is important as well.
4 ( +9 / -5 )
You guys do know that this Virus isn't half as dangerous (currently) as media suggests ?
the Flu kills ~650.000 People each year, Corona kille less then 3000 since December (so within about 2 month) while people are usually the weakest in the cold month (and most of them beeing Chinese while people from "most" other Countries that have proper HealthCare usually don't die) so you can assume that in the warmer times there will be even less deads.
Just calculatin 5000 in 2 Month would still only be about 30.000 within a year compared to 650.000
New Viruses are definietly dangerous because we don't know them but people tend to overreact

Something that is not a solid cannot be sliced. Mayonaise is not a solid.
And still they did ... probably added gelatin or some other stuff making it more like a jelly that holds together enough not to fall apart when slicing it up.
I had the chocolate one a few years ago (probably 4-5 years ago ?) and it was okay ... one of my Co-Workers loved it though
