Good evening from Tokyo under the third time state of emergency.
Worldwide criticism is growing for the money-mad IOC and Thomas Bach, who are trying to make a forced the Olympics to be held two months later in Tokyo which is on the verge of a medical collapse caused by the Corona disaster. Following the Washington Post and the New York Times, the BBC, CNN and Libération all said the Olympics should be cancelled.
How about the Japanese media, they are also the sponsors of the Olympics, so in a sense they are ‘the war criminals’. As for the Olympics coverage, the Japanese media is a dog of the Government and the Olympics. The Japanese media is not trusted in Japan for many reasons over the years. On Twitter in Japan today, there were numerous tweets calling for the Olympics to be cancelled. But these voices do not reach the IOC or Thomas Bach.
In Gifu Prefecture, near Nagoya, the state of emergency is expected to be declared. All over Japan there is a serious spreading of a variant virus from UK. In Tokyo, the killer variant virus from India has been found to have started to spread in the city.
Today’s photos are the Hakone-Utshigi (Weigela coraeensis). The white and pink flowers are graceful and lovely. I took these photos yesterday. The flowers were in full bloom. Last year, when I saw them in full bloom in the same place, bees and many other insects were swarming the flowers for the nectar. Yesterday I didn’t see them. I wonder maybe they had finished their sweet lunch of the nectar and went for a walk?
Have a happy weekend.
Wear a mask and wash your hands.
Stay safe and healthy 😊😷🖖🖖🖖🖖🖖
