Hakugai was great, as was Arashi, and loved Freefall.

the new shooting dark ride they got was fantastic too (well worth the 500 yen upcharge). . "Farm De Bang Bang!"
basically Toy Story Mania themed to a barnyard jamboree - the "guns" are giant carrots!

the star of the place is Hakugai tho.. the coaster is stunningly awesome.

(if I had to pick a negative about the coaster line up? Ultra Twister was pretty rough, 1 and done for me, and I used to love that ride at Astroworld).

^ So for some Americans, this is going to become another "invasion of privacy" crap, I hope not?

I think it's a fine idea, and have gone through the airport "tube" thing. No big deal. But for others.... <sighs>

Good to see Japan coming out of this, and after only 2 months. Gives us some hope. Glad to see they're still taking hygiene and safety seriously too. A+!

I suspect the decision to reopen will be reversed. Lots of pressure not to cancel the Olympics.

Spain kept open lots of big events over the past month and now they are in really bad shape.

S. Korea seems to have handled this better than Japan. They've done as much testing as any country and may have a grip on the grippe.

And of course much of East Asia has had mask wearing in public as part of the culture for along time.
"don't test, don't tell"

It's good to see Japanese parks opening again, but I wonder if this does not give a false sense of security. On the one hand Japan and its society have the characteristics to deal with the virus efficiently, but on the other hand, the Japanese government has been accused of barely testing people and in a certain way downplaying the situation around the virus to show that the country is doing fine and that the Olympics do not need to be cancelled. I agree with the user above me, it would not surprise me if the decision will be reversed at some point. I hope that I am wrong though, and that Japan really has the virus under control already.

I mean Korea was at one point the second most infected country after China, and the biggest parks here never closed. And the numbers spiked and went down without the parks ever closing.

I worry we may have a second outbreak since we've been hitting double digits and the curve is down, but that's because people have become too relaxed and have been complacent, crowding the cafes and restaurants, and I see less and less people without masks outside compared to 3 weeks ago. I think the danger here will be that if it outbreaks in the parks, not them being open themselves. Which by the looks of all those rules and restrictions Japan have, unlike Korea they are well aware things are better but not out of the woods.

Our cinemas have just started cutting off every other row, and the numbers entered triple digits again so I'm hoping people will take more precautions again. It will be over-confidence and people being careless that the threat is gone that will cause parks to be closed again.

^ How cool to hear your cinemas doing that, seating wise. Hope it works out. Too bad
main theatre productions (U.S./Canada included) and movie complexes
can't figure out similar configurations, in their respective theatres.

And then there's the sizes of casts, onstage....

But the less sized groups of people, the better for now, I agree.
