Hey guys! Here is another VLOG from the end of June. I do most- if not all- of the grocery shopping. and as someone who dabs a little in various styles of cooking (Japanese, Western, etc) I am always trying to find different ingredients at their best prices. As some of these import stores can be found across Japan, here are some finds that I always save a yennie on. I also tried some summer treats.
Fruit Muesli on Amazon

With regard to the pandemic, if you have not seen in the news already, the response in Japan from its administration has been a bit different than those of other countries: I want to also let my international audience know that, even now, Japan has been taking a mild approach
🚨UPDATE (ONLY FROM APRIL 7th – 7 Prefectures are under a state of emergency NO LOCKDOWN)
so if you see people around, not everyone is wearing masks (they’re sold out anyway), taking trains, going to work, playing in parks, eating in restaurants… that is kind of the situation at that time. At the time of filming, there was no official lockdown.
🚨UPDATE (FROM APRIL 17th the state of emergency has extended to all prefectures) until May 6th as of now.
🚨UPDATE (FROM APRIL 30th the state of emergency has been extended to May 31st) but, prefectures with fewer cases are lifting restrictions.
🚨UPDATE (FROM MAY 14th some prefectures in Japan may lift restrictions) – the exception of the 13 prefectures with the most cases
🚨UPDATE(FROM MAY 21st Hyogo, Osaka and Kyoto have lifted their state of emergency)
🚨UPDATE(FROM MAY 24th Tokyo and the remaining surrounding prefectures (plus Hokkaido) have lifted their state of emergency)
🚨UPDATE (FROM JUNE 1st Tokyo will enter the second phase of opening by allows certain places like gyms and yoga to start their services back up again and restaurants will be able to serve until 10pm)
🚨UPDATE FROM May 23rd- May 31st Fukuoka started experiencing a cluster of infections (48 within 6 days) after having 0 infections for quite a long period of time. They are experiencing a slight second wave.
🚨UPDATE FROM June 2nd Tokyo went on Tokyo Alert due to an uptake of some infections exceeding 20 cases. From June 11th the Tokyo Alert has been taken down and Tokyo will start into Phase 3 of lifting restrictions. Restrictions will only be imposed again if 1. more than 50 cases a day or 2. 50% of the cases are untraceable or 3. the cases double in less than a week.
🚨UPDATE From June 11th, the government has decided they will take measures to allow a travel bubble of 250 travelers a day (mostly business) from Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Vietnam and currently foreign residents that have long term visas, spousal, child dependent, etc are allowed to come back under SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES
🚨UPDATE From June 19th, the government has decided to lift restrictions domestically to allow travelers to travel between prefectures within Japan
🚨UPDATE July 9th, Tokyo breaks the daily record of new infections with 224 cases. Government plans to continue easing restrictions allowing events of 1k to 5k people.
🚨UPDATE July 18th about a month after inter-prefectural travel restrictions were lifted, not only Tokyo but multiple cities across Japan are breaking daily number infection counts.
🚨UPDATE FROM July 22nd will start the Go To Campaign in prefectures excluding Tokyo to allow discounted domestic travel in order to boost the economy (fears and criticism of spreading to other prefectures have risen from this).
NO LOCKDOWN was imposed- but properties like hotels are being used for less critical cases
