    ah fuck, second wave about to hit Japan. Tokyo preparing for lockdown. Got out of that city just in time but won't be long before it washes over Kyoto, Osaka; time to think about home.

    • Are they letting tourists stay?yuekit
    • Well they can't kick me out, i got a 3 month visa. How they gonna kick us out? But Tokyo is about to go lockdown, and supermarket shelves are emptyingKhurram
    • Arrived in Kyoto today and shocked how its teaming with people. Subway packed out with commuters, everything open like they think nothing can go wrong...Khurram
    • Be careful, many countries a couple of weeks ago cancelled tourist visas before their respective lockdowns. Keep your eye on this.Continuity
    • *gulp*Khurram
    • Would they really cancel existing visas or just stop issuing new ones?yuekit
    • You travelling on which passport? CA or UK? If on the CA, just register your trip:…
      I get regular mails about local
    • ... advisories in Germany.Continuity

    • Straight up, feeling cast adrift, lost. Canada is my home, England is my country. My flight to Canada has been cancelled, because i'm a resident not a citizenKhurram
    • Will be spending some more unplanned time up north, in England. 2 months, almost 3, was a good run. Whole thing's been surreal dodging lockdowns and entry bans.Khurram
    • They should just let everyone stay where they are IMO. Some countries are doing this and offering extra visa extension, not sure about Japan.yuekit
    • That's the way it goes, I'm afraid. If I was abroad right now, Germany would never repatriate me, despite having lived here for 8 years; I'm not a citizen.Continuity
    • Honestly, I got out of the Philppines by the skin of my teeth. Total lockdown the day after I left for Japan. I have a friend trapped on a shithole islandKhurram
    • No way to get off the island. They shutdown everything - surfing, gyms, beaches, restaurants, bars, police checks everywhere - dire internet (1mbs at best).Khurram
    • Electricity blackouts every week so they can build some stupid bridge while hospitals and people are without electricity/running water/communicationsKhurram
    • She's in touch with the British embassy to try and get her out of there, but it's so bad in these places. My mum's in Pakistan. Same situation.Khurram
    • To live through something like this, I've had to rethink everything, my future, my plans, my expectations for the year. Where i'll be, what i'll be doing.Khurram
    • Go to the Azores!shapesalad
    • Kuz is Patient Zero for the Asian Second Wave SARS2 Pandemic?Nairn
