Japan Situation Update
The semi-state of emergency finally ended on March 21. While unfortunately Japan hasn’t opened up for tourism just yet, as of this month entry will be allowed for all other purposes besides tourism, such as for purposes including business and employment. For entrants who have gotten all 3 shots of their vaccinations, hotel quarantine will no longer be required as it had been before. While these changes don’t help most of our viewers who are looking forward to visit Japan to enjoy the food and culture, they do show that things are getting better, and hopefully they continue in this direction.
In the meantime, please check out our latest documentary about the video game arcade community in Koenji, which exemplifies another niche part of what is so special about this area in Tokyo.
