Lots of people seem to think anywhere outside of Tokyo is a little village but Osaka is a huge city in itself... You can't have that many people in one place and not expect to not see anyone out because they have to go shopping and run errands.

Look, they're even wearing masks anyway so don't kick up a fuss and scream about pointless lockdowns (latest research I've seen: https://academic.oup.com/cesifo/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cesifo/ifab003/6199605)

Did you read it or just cherry pick it because it supports your narrative?

Most research shows that lockdowns work, but like most things it is not a simple case of black and white.

A photograph is not necessarily worth a thousand words. In this scene everyone is wearing a mask. So where did all that Coronavirus-19 suddenly come from? A good guess is that there were those times when people took their masks off.

Eating and drinking is impossible with a mask on. The bars and eateries are the most likely culprits for the spread of the virus. If that is the case the bars and eateries should be closed and subsidized for staying closed until the pandemic is over..

I have to respectfully disagree with you.

No common sense. It will get worse in Osaka and everywhere else in Japan.

I am packing up and leaving Tokyo for a year.

And return only after I am vaccinated probably a year or more later. I will stay close to thee ocean.. not to close.

if the Olympics are held, Japan will become on of the worlds most affected countries in the world.

people are already left to die at home in Osaka, how can anyone even consider an event like that.

Didn't you also post that you would shut your sports business if the Olympics went ahead?

I can testify, there are many great sea areas to live in. Myself, I live near the sea in Tatsuno City, Hyogo.

Yes, I did, Mr Zushi. does the one not seem to confirm the other ? 90 % of my business requires my presence in Tokyo.

I am trying all I can have bring about thee only sensible solution which is a postponement to 2022. I can completely cover any argument for or against a 2022 postponement.

don’t you worry, I will stop working in sports marketing and management if the games go ahead. I would be to shamed of my business sector to continue

its just zichi which is my artist name. But you also manage a football club in Yokohama, yes? What you do is only your concern.

The games should be postponed another year.

I live in Namba. Was born in Kobe. Lets talk again after you flee (probably fleeing to a worse off place) after we have been “left to die” lol.

Have they really not yet caught on as to why there 1,161 new cases? Stay at home.

Literally the first face I noticed in the photo was definitely NOT covered with a mask!

Come on, that was too easy.
