It is not a lockdown as in European countries. But the ‘state of emergency was declared in Japan. This will be effective till May 6.
Well, it is not an order, but ‘encouraged’ or ‘requested’ to stay home.
Whether good or bad, Japan is a country of ゆるいyurui or loose. Not strict.
Japan is a yurui ゆるい loose country like a Yurui character ‘Kumamon.’ We call it Yuru Chara. Japan may be a Yuru country.
Kumamon was born in Kumamoto, and it represents the Kumamoto prefecture, not like a Disney character. Difficult to define what Kumamon is.
This vague status, as well as a vague looking, not a bear not a human being, is referred as ‘loose’ or ‘yurui’ or vague.
So Japan is a loose Yuru country.
You can also say that we are willing to follow the community rule even with no fine imposed.
Anyway, this is not the ‘lockdown.’
Now all department stores are closed. Many restaurants are closed, many Izakaya are closed, but not 100%.
Here is my situation.
Kumano brushes and Bisyodo can be sent to Tokyo. So you can order.
Hakuhodo can be bought and mailed from Nagoya. So you can order.
Makeup products can be bought in local department stores outside Tokyo. e.g. Okayama
So you can order almost all of the products except for e.g. Isetan limited.
Currently no Isetan limited.
Kihitsu is now offering a discount for many products and I am asking the list to be mailed to you.
I am thinking to give some discounts to Hakuhodo products too, maybe 5% during the ‘lockdown.’
I will let you know soon!
Yesterday I visited
I asked shop employees what they do at home for one month.
Most of them replied, ‘I play a game.’
It was ‘Animal Crossing series.’ It gets so popular in Japan that it is sold out at many shops.
