  • This is life in Tokyo March 1920 20.

  • So a lot of people have been messaging me on Instagram and commenting in the YouTube comments and asking what life is like in Tokyo.

  • So in this video, I kind of want to take the time out and show you exactly what's going on from my perspective, if you don't already know, I've actually created a discord community where people have been talking about what's been going on in Tokyo so interested in talking with the community than let me leave links in the descriptions.

  • And you guys can follow the discord community as well and joined.

  • And if you guys want more regular updates, what's happening here in Tokyo?

  • Let me know by hitting that light button.

  • Maybe if we get 20,000 likes, then I'll do another video.

  • Otherwise, I probably don't want to hear any more updates, so leave it at that.

  • So without further ado, let me show you what's happening in Tokyo.

  • So first of all, let's talk about mass.

  • Because of mask shortages in Japan, resellers, especially online, have been taking advantage of the situation and selling mass at exorbitant prices that since March 15th the Japanese government has passed a law banning the reselling of mass at higher prices, punishable by after one year imprisonment and up to a one million yen fine, which is about 9350 U.

  • S.

  • Dollars.

  • Also, the government announced that on March 17th it will be distributing 2.5 million government owned master medical institutions, and 15 million additional mass will be distributed the following week.

  • Now, what a lot of people don't know is that you're a mass is a very common thing here in Japan for many, many years now.

  • It's not out of the ordinary to see people wearing masks.

  • A lot of Japanese people, when they're sick, are almost expected toe wear masks so that they don't transfer any of their sickness.

  • Two other people and on the other hand, a lot of people were mass because they don't want to get sick themselves in back.

  • It's almost considered rude or bad manner not to wear a mask if you are sick.

  • In fact, there's been some cases recently where people have not been wearing masks on the train and they're sneezing or coughing, and other people have called them out and almost started fights because of it.

  • Just because people think you're being rude or you're not being considerate of others because you're not wearing a mask.

  • But things have changed a little bit because there's been kind of a run on Mass here in Japan.

  • So although Japanese people wanna wear masks in Japan in order to be considerate, they actually can't because a lot of drug stores like this and a lot of other places don't have any in stock anymore, because I've been all sold out.

  • As you can see here, they have a son of this are saying that they're all sold out of mass.

  • But you'll find is that a lot of the grocery stores and convenience stores here in Japan are still fully stocked.

  • So there's no real, like worry about not having any food.

  • As you can see, there's still plenty of food on the shelves.

  • Kkamini's have plenty of food to look, so what you'll find in Japan, especially in Tokyo, is that because of the current situation, a lot of workers are working from home.

  • These days, a lot of employers actually have allowed a lot of their staff to do most of the work remotely.

  • It does make it a little bit difficult for some people because they're family is home as well, and it might be a little bit harder for them to do work.

  • So as you can see, there's just a lot less people on the streets, including office areas, and what you'll find right now is that not a lot of people are taking the trains.

  • It's supposedly a rush hour right now, and there's not a lot of people.

  • People are generally more conscious about riding trains and public transit these days as it's a closed environment, so people don't know where mass to protect themselves and others, especially when compared to when they're walking in the open air.

  • So what you'll find is that amusement areas like Disneyland Tokyo sky tree concerts, museums are clues at the moment, and you really, really need to check before you go there.

  • Have you really want to go to those places?

  • Even places like this scent so G and knock on my door just right behind me are seeing drops in visitors.

  • You can actually see that there's not a lot of people compared to what the usual crowds would be at this time during the day.

  • Let me show you around this area a little bit.

  • Honestly, I've never seen Senso Ji this empty during the day.

  • At this time of year, it really appears that Japanese citizens are taking the situation more seriously and appointing unnecessary travel.

  • Also, other tourist spots like fish market, historical sites, zoos and aquariums have temporarily closed down, while sports events like professional baseball have to delay the start of their season.

  • So what you'll see just walking around is that there's still people here.

  • People are still shopping, they're still doing that thing.

  • But in fact, there's just not a lot of people, so even small amusement parks in Tokyo like the one behind me.

  • Hannah Uschi is also closed at the moment.

  • In fact, this being honey me season or cherry blossom season at the moment.

  • Ah, lot of official honey Mead festivals have been closed down, so you really need to be careful if you're planning on going to one of these places.

  • Another interesting thing is that all schools have been closed down, so you would think that a lot of elementary school kids of middle school kids.

  • High school kids would all be at home.

  • But that may not be the case.

  • Let me show you.

  • In general, though, obviously with some outliers, most adults are taking the current situation seriously.

  • On the other hand, it appears that Japanese youth, especially junior high and high school students, are not taking it as seriously these days.

  • You'll often find them in places like Kata Juku during the day gathering with friends.

  • So schools of enclosed in Japan since February 27 but due to the closures of parents, have been having trouble taking care of their kids.

  • As many of them work, some parents have been forced to take paid leave or higher baby sitters.

  • One silver lining to all of this is that the government has decided to provide support up to 264,000 yen about 2500 U.

  • S.

  • Dollars per kid for a baby sitter.

  • However, in order for parents to receive support, the company must be certified for the support and on Lee designated BabyCenter Service's can be used, and unfortunately, this dozen cover freelancers and workers who work for unconfirmed companies.

  • One thing though you'll find a lot of restaurants, businesses and store's still open.

  • Let me show you Jebalya.

  • At this time you can see most shops and restaurants are still open, but many of them are reducing their business hours, while a few shops have temporarily closed.

  • Also, many shops and businesses have set out hand sanitizers at the entrance for customers to clean their hands before they enter.

  • Also, it's not uncommon to see restaurant staff wearing Massey's days.

  • Usually, it's considered rude in Japanese culture for store staff to hide their face when serving customers.

  • But these days it's viewed as considerate, giving the current situation.

  • So as you can see, life in Tokyo has changed.

  • It's not the same as it was several months ago.

  • At the end of the day, people are doing what they can face on the current situation, a mask being one way to be considerate of others.

  • So again, if you like this video, help me out by hitting that like button.

  • If you get 20,000 likes, maybe I'll continue and you should also remember that things are changing on a daily basis these days, so definitely keep up to date with all of the news.

  • I'll leave some useful links in the description, so definitely check those out.

  • And also remember, I have a discord channel where people are already talking about what's going on here in Tokyo.

  • There are some locals that live in Japan there on the community, so definitely check out that server.

  • And if you want to see more Japan guy videos like this, that's a scribe and development.

  • I'll catch you guys in the next one.

This is life in Tokyo March 1920 20.
