It’s Japanese National Holiday, Health and Sports Day, today which I believe it was created for Tokyo Olympics.
It supposed to be Tokyo Olympics 2020 Opening Ceremony Day today.
It was National Holiday, Ocean Day, yesterday making this weekend long (4 days) .
I thought the town would be crowded with visitors and I would be glued on TV.
Japanese government launched Go to Travel Programme on 22 July 2020 to stimulate tourist industry by excluding Tokyo residences.
The government subsidies traveling cost for transportation, accommodation and coupons to use in the visited area.
However, the policy is changing even after launching.
On the other hand, the number of new case is shooting, recording 366 in Tokyo yesterday.
And the number increased not only in Tokyo but also other areas such as Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and many more.
All governors are worried after this long weekend coz many people are traveling with Go To Travel Programme
I’m enjoying long weekend with my niece and we don’t mind to stay in because we haven’t seen since New Year due to the COVID and we have so many things to do!
We’ve been playing games by creating and changing game rules.
I want her to eat healthy so I try to cook as many as I can and she volunteered to help me making dumpling!
We are having so much fun staying in!
I’m not qualified for Go To Travel Programme and it’s better to avoid crowd.
We decided to stay in but we are having so much fun!
I’ve never thought we would spend Olympics Opening Ceremony Day like this.
I like how I’m spending today though it’s different from what I imagine last year – being with family.
