Good evening from Tokyo, where the second time Semi-emergency Spread Prevention Measures have been applied.
It rained on and off in Tokyo today, just like the rainy season. The humidity was high. However, like the past few days, today was also rather cool and mild. Though I don’t like damp.
Yesterday I wrote about the serving of the alcohol drinks in the Olympic stadiums. This is a follow up. At first the Tokyo Olympic Committee announced that alcohol would be served to spectators at the stadiums. It was intended to benefit the Olympic sponsor, Asahi Beer (Asahi Breweries). However, after huge criticism from all over Japan, Asahi Beer pressured the Olympic Committee to stop selling alcohol to protect their reputation and brand image. Today, the Tokyo Olympic Committee announced that it will not serve alcohol in the stadiums. It’s a matter of course. The Tokyo Olympics Committee can totally ignore the voice of the people, but follows the order of the sponsor like a dog. The Tokyo Shameless Committee.
Some parts of the Torch Relay course in Tokyo, which are scheduled in July, are expected to be cancelled on public roads.
Only a few days until my first vaccine shot. I must be vigilant not to catch a cold or fell unwell before my vaccination.
People who received at least one shot of the vaccine in Japan
As of 22 June: 24,017,737 people

Good night. Have a good dream.
Wear a mask and wash your hands.
Stay safe and healthy 😊😷🖖🖖🖖🖖🖖
