CICC TOKYO DAYORI vol.72
Konnichiwa or Good day!

Tokyo lifted the state of emergency over the novel coronavirus pandemic
on 25 May.
A sports club, which had launched a year ago near my house, reopened on
1 June, after closing for these past two months. I found many changes
there. First, it is necessary to enter the club with wearing face masks.
But I take off if to be recognized my face in front of the camera at the
entrance. After check-in, the AI heat tracker thermal system checks my
body temperature and automatically finds out if it is more than 37.5
degrees Celsius or not. The max capacity of classes including Yoga and
Pilates is reduced by one third. When joining the classes, I need to
book my own space in the studio online to keep distance with others. In
using exercise machines, I need to sanitize them before and after and to
keep distance. I am required a lot of work. But people who love exercise
were looking forward to reopen.

After all, I prefer walking dog in the park or on the beach in spending
my day off, of course with wearing a mask and keeping distance.

I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

Hiroko KAWABATA (Ms)

[Topic]  "Omotenashi" (hospitality) by IT

Rugby World Cup is going on in Japan now. Matches are held across the
country from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Not only matches but also team camps
are hosted by many Japanese communities where the qualified teams
train and prepare. The Namibia team is camping in Kamitonda, a small
town in Wakayama Prefecture. I know Kamitonda very well because it is
next to my hometown. People in Kamitonda received the Namibian team
with "Omotenashi" - Japanese word for hospitality. (See this article:
