I’ve been living in Japan just shy of 30 years but despite that I was depressingly shocked on Monday, March 13th. This was the day that the Japanese government told everyone that they could stop wearing their masks 24/7. And for some reason I thought that when l left my house Monday morning I would see lots of smiling faces, but no…nothing has changed. The masses remained fully masked and if any of the surveys are true, the masses will continue to mask-up. The mind-hive is fully operational.
