Health Alert - U.S. Embassy Tokyo (August 5, 2020)

Health Alert – U.S. Embassy Tokyo (August 5, 2020)  
Location:           Japan  
Date:                  August 5, 2020 
State of COVID-19 Measures in JapanThe U.S. Embassy and consulates continue to monitor closely the COVID-19 outbreak in Japan.  Case numbers in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Okinawa, and in other areas across Japan have risen significantly in the past two weeks, and many prefectural officials are requesting residents comply with specific mitigation efforts centered around refraining from visiting nightlife establishments and other non-essential outings and travel.
In Okinawa, on July 31 Governor Tamaki implemented a state of emergency and requested that residents avoid non-essential outings.  He also urged residents to refrain from travel to mainland Japan and asked that travelers from outside Okinawa carefully consider whether they should travel to the islands. 
In Hokkaido, on July 27 Governor Suzuki asked residents to carefully consider the necessity of travel outside of Hokkaido.
In Kyushu, some local governors including those in Miyazaki, Nagasaki, and Kumamoto have issued local guidelines or updated alert levels. 
In Tokyo, Governor Koike continues to urge residents to avoid restaurants and other service establishments that lack proper infection-control and social distancing measures and has asked bars and restaurants to limit their hours.  She also requests that Tokyo residents refrain from crossing prefectural borders unless necessary.  More information on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s recommendations can found here.
In the Kansai area, including Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, COVID-19 cases have steadily increased.  New cases have mainly occurred in entertainment establishments, prompting Osaka Governor Yoshima to urge the public to limit gatherings to no more than 5 people and to increase



Hello music fans,
My name is Daisuke Niiyama, a songwriter / multi-instrumentalist living in Sapporo, Japan.  My charity live stream show is going to be held on August 9 at 20:00 Japan time.  Join me with the quality sound and professional camera movements aired from the awesome Hoheikan, one of Japan’s important properties.  You will love the total concept of the show for sure.
The purpose of this charity show is to support musicians, sound engineers and music-related workers who lost their jobs in Hokkaido because of the sickening coronavirus attack.  You can enjoy the show for free or tip from the link on the page if you want.  In the show, I will play



Cruising the ocean frontage roads of Tomakomai we stopped to admire this little garden paradise. The owner popped out to welcome us. He once owned a cabaret club in Chitose many years ago, now at 75 he is retired and his enjoyment is to create this garden so everyone can see. He collects the sun powered bobble head toys, he claims to have over 300. As we talked I enjoyed the sound of the surf pounding & fresh salty sea air. I want to go back and visit him, record his stories on tape and bring him a solar powered toy for his collection.

Chitose Dam   千歳ダム

Fun hike to visit an 100 year old dam with historic brick building.  Park at the  水明郷パーキング  Suimeikyo parking lot  and walk the bike trail west towards the lake. Eventually you see an electric transformer station to the right. It is fenced off, avoid this of course. But right before it you will notice a deer trail. Follow the deer trail towards the river, you will reach a very steep embankment, look for the abandoned  (man made) old pack mule trail that has a winding path down the mountain. Follow it to the dam. Do not enter the building or walk on the dam, it has staff working and visiting.  Bring a picnic and enjoy the view.  You could follow the access road west to get back to the bike trail.  While in the forest look for deer antlers.

Konnichiwa, like to share some feel good stories from Hokkaido Japan. Few months ago I attended a music gig at a small cafe near my house. The party was most excellent. I have since returned to the cafe for food & coffee and was very surprised to learn the origin story. The owner is a Japanese woman, an artist, who about 8 years ago watched a film about a cute cafe in Helsinki Finland. The film is a good heart warming story. She was deeply touched and moved by the film so much that she re-created the cafe in my town, the feels, the vibes, the food, etc. I was just there today and had delicious food, great coffee and best of all, awesome people. The cafe is now celebrating 7 years of being open and is rocking out. Of course the virus situation has us all stressed and she only has very limited hours, maybe 2 afternoons a week open. It is wild as now after watching the film I really want to visit Finland. I am touched also. There is this mystery vibe connection tween Finland and my area, Hokkaido Japan. So strong that Finland Air even started weekly direct flights to my remote island. I was honored as the staff invited me to join them in the future when they will host board game nights. I think it is amazing that a person can watch a movie and be so inspired to try and bring that vibe to their own world and make it reality. It worked! So cheers to the artists who create such stirring works and cheers to the fans who admire and are deeply moved by such works ❤️
