I wish I was in Disney World

I wonder what that means for the ABD trips to Japan that are scheduled for June and July?
I have friends in Japan who say there's no lockdown there, and everything is relatively normal (as normal as it can be). I suppose the government could be hiding it from everyone, but my friends are in populous areas (one friend is in Tokyo), and I just don't know how you could hide that.That makes sense. I had read that the number of coronavirus cases being reported in Japan could be incorrect due to Japan not wanting to cancel the games, but that could be untrue. My daughter and I are booked for the July 5th tour. So fingers crossed
Thanks so much for chiming in! I've been very curious to what is happening on the ground in Japan. It seemed as if Japan was an early hotspot but then really flattened the curve. The cultural differences are interesting, and I'm sure will be researched in the future (especially as compared to the Italians, which seem to be the opposite). Keep us posted.Hello, Japan local here! Things change day to day, but basically everyone is going about their daily lives. No lockdowns or anything, but there are rumors that there may be one for Tokyo soon. Cases are low, whether the government hid it or not, but for it being exposed here for about a couple months already, the numbers here are pretty low. It may be due to how people here really don’t touch eachother often by handshakes or hugs, people already are used to wearing masks daily, or just the culture difference.
It is good to see they are putting off the Olympics, but it does hurt things, as there has been construction all over Tokyo and the surrounding areas to prepare for it.I hope this delay won’t further affect things like taxes and such.Tourism has been a problem, so I hope this doesn’t cause permanent damage. We will see!
