Japan is nearing the date (June 19th) when they will allow people to travel to other prefectures.

Of course this doesn't mean we can go back to our normal ways, we still need to social distance and wear a mask.

The experts advise that when we eat out, we sit side-by-side and not talk to each other while eating.

Also places like karaoke and izakaya (bars) have come up with innovative ways to prevent virus clusters.

Since most of Japan has started their rainy season, I am impressed that the local governments are thinking ahead and have started to prepare for natural disasters.

Any natural disasters that happen this year will be treated differently because of COVID-19.

In the past, most shelters were packed with people, but this year, they are thinking of different ways to prevent virus clusters from forming.

Hopefully there will not be any natural disasters in Japan this year, but if by chance there is, at least everyone is trying to prepare in advance.

Satoshi is working from home this week, so I don't need to make him bento and get to sleep an hour longer...whoo!

I have been hoping that Japan and Hawaii could agree to that bubble pact. I think they want to see how the outcome of the inter-island and prefecture travel works out first.
So sad, you cannot come and I cannot go:(

V, my aunty was telling me about that bubble pact. Hoping everyone will eventually nix the quarantine rules otherwise tourism will definitely suffer.

Take care.

It's some pretty good foresight Kat....though I'm hoping it won't have to be put to use.

K and S said...

Kirk, hoping we don't have to use them too.

Take care.

the US of A should follow Japan's lead. I'd hate to see how it goes should a 2nd wave hit the mother country.

Rowena, I'd hate to see the 2nd wave hit the US too.

Take care.
