Coronavirus: Japan introduced a state of emergency for a month
Japanese authorities have declared a state of emergency due to the spread of coronavirus, and also talked about a billion-dollar stimulus package to deal with the country's largest crisis since World War II.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said at a press conference that a state of emergency is being introduced, as Tokyo and other densely populated areas are increasingly affected by Covid-19, and now he has to rethink approaches to curbing the epidemic.
An emergency regime was introduced until May 6 and will initially affect Tokyo and six other prefectures.
So far, Japan has managed to avoid a surge in the incidence of Covid-19 and a large number of deaths from it. In the country, more than 3900 infected with coronavirus were detected, 91 people died. These numbers are not as high as in countries at the epicenter of the pandemic, but the number of new cases in the capital continues to grow steadily, especially among young people.
The imposition of a state of emergency gives prefectural leaders the power to urge people to stay home and close secondary businesses, but these measures will not be as severe as in the United States and some European countries.
In addition, the Japanese government unveiled a billions-dollar stimulus package. Coronavirus has already increased the risk of recession in the country.
Although the Tokyo authorities have already called on citizens to slow down their normal lives and stay at home, it is believed that due to an outbreak in the capital, a state of emergency was required to be introduced earlier.

Fantastic place to see birds
Have been here several times. It was awesome. You go up close to the birds and see some very unusual ones. There are many things to see in all sizes, and shows can be watched. It is within walking distance of the train station
Dzikogudani Snow Monkey Park
In the mountains there is snow and cool, it is better to dress warmer. You need to go to the hot springs for about twenty minutes from parking lots. The paths are not asphalted, so if the sun is baking, the sun underfoot can be slushy (February). It is better to go in January-February (the beginning), when there is most snow. At the end of February it was already not so beautiful, it melted ... It’s better not to bother the monkeys, they can take it out (they saw how the macaque attacked a too daring photographer). You can bask in a small gatehouse. They stuck there for two or three hours, until the battery in the camera sat down. An amazing sight!

Temple of “Pure Water”
That is how the name of the temple is translated from Japanese - “clear water”. The temple is located on Mount Otova and was built in 798. It literally hangs over the abyss, its terrace rests on 139 fifteen-meter logs. The view from the temple to the whole of Kyoto is stunning, and the park around Kiyomizu-dera is worthy of attention (like all Japanese parks, of course :)) And the incredibly picturesque Sanie-zaka street with cute souvenir shops and goodies leads to the temple.
