Show Notes

Just three months shy of hosting the postponed summer Olympics, Japan experienced an increasing number of coronavirus cases. As a result, Japan is reportedly placing Tokyo among other prefectures under a 'quasi-emergency state' to slow the spread of the virus ahead of the games. The pandemic has also impacted the retail industry, as they now have to close by 9 p.m. whereas pre-COVID they remained open until 4 a.m.
