  • Are you ok? - No, I am worried what we will do for the upcoming rent at this rate.

  • It's rare for Japanese people to speak up. That's why we managed to get ¥100,000 ($1,000)

  • Hey guys and girls on Ask Japanese it's Cathy Cat and today I am joined by...

  • Hi I am her friend Hiroko from Hiroko TV.

  • Hiroko does street interviews, I do street interviews but right now we're doing completely different

  • things and I thought to ask Hiroko this time...

  • How Japanese people have dealt with the Corona Situation, maybe some good and bad things

  • that Japanese people are doing right now in Japan.

  • So let's find out. Let's go. - Let's go.

  • What Japanese reactions have you seen these days?

  • Many think it only concerns some strangers. Japanese seem to think they're gonna be ok.

  • "Some people are getting it? Bad for them." they think.

  • "Abroad is struggling. They got it tough abroad" but they're thinking THEY will be ok anyways.

  • I think there are a lot of these kind of people in Japan.

  • Looking how people are acting now, many are still going outside, even though less than before.

  • I understand that they can't do a lockdown. If we were told to never go outside....

  • I wouldn't feel good about it even though I am not going outside.

  • I am not leaving the house, that is why I don't know anything but what I hear on TV

  • I am scared of it, and I don't want to pass it on to my family members.

  • There are good and bad things in Japan right now.

  • The bad thing is that many Japanese are starting flame wars on the internet.

  • There are still some people who upload "I am having fun with friends!" on Instagram...

  • So some people will copy that and complain about that in Twitter without saying it to these people.

  • I think they should tell them directly.

  • Influencers are getting the stick for playing outside too much right now.

  • They are? Why?

  • Well those who are still going to the beach and stuff. - They SHOULD get the stick for that now.

  • "What the heck are you doing?" The term influencer means you got the power to INFLUENCE people.

  • That's exactly why they shouldn't do that kind of reckless behavior and stay at home.

  • I was shocked to see how some people in Japan reacted. We are told to avoid the 3Cs

  • But some people don't seem to understand what that means.

  • At supermarkets they put down tape every 2 meters to space out people.

  • They do? - That was at my supermarket, but some people still came SUPER close.

  • I was like "Whaaaat? Please give me some space!"

  • I was so scared. - I was shocked too!

  • There might be a spaced out area in front of the till, but in the store, customers get up super close.

  • I have the feeling some people don't understand the danger right now.

  • Many are not self aware enough....

  • My mother told me a lot to think more and be more conscious of the situation.

  • And I am lucky to have many friends abroad. They told me

  • "Hiroko please don't go outside! It can get really bad!"

  • "You might get the same situation in 3 weeks!" I heard their plea a lot.

  • Even if I might not get sick... but I might pass it still on to someone outside.

  • I realized that. So I stay indoors.

  • But sometimes you really wanna leave the house in the mornings right?

  • Then I get up at 5am and run around the nearest park.

  • I don't want to run when there are people.

  • I do this every 3 days.

  • But there is a good thing. Japanese people genrally don't voice their opinions, especially political ones.

  • True, in one of our interviews, everyone said that too! - Exactly

  • Japanese people said "I don't get politics!"

  • But thanks to this situation, everyone is experiencing politics on a personal level.

  • "I might not be able to pay bills!"

  • "What kind of welfare can my country offer me when I struggle?"

  • Japanese people now see politics as something that concerns their lives.

  • Japanese people, who don't generally voice opinions, are now speaking up!

  • ... about the government and such.

  • People who say "that's not right!" or "I want this to happen" have emerged now.

  • Thanks to this crisis.

  • That's a good thing. People are saying what's on their mind.

  • Japanese people are changing for the better I think.

  • But on the contrary, because people are voicing opinions now,

  • some people are just adding fuel to the fire and only complain.

  • There are some people who ONLY complain about EVERYTHING now.

  • That makes it hard to please anyone.

  • But many Japanese learned to speak their minds now due to this. - Looks like.

  • Thanks to the SNS world, we can even reach the higher ups of our society.

  • If someone says on YouTube "This is wrong" and the video gets 1,000,000 views, the higher ups might see it.

  • So people are speaking out in Japan.

  • The opinions of the people of Japan are now able to get heard.

  • And thanks to that, we are getting better results from the government too.

  • What I am curious about...

  • Japan is a country known to be strong at enduring things.

  • Why then are there still so many people going outside???

  • Why do you think that is?

  • They don't feel there is an immediate danger.

  • No matter what it is they think they'll be ok. "I won't get it"

  • There are some who think it doesn't concern them at all.

  • How can people see images of New York struggling and are not concerned?

  • Because it is not in Japan.

  • And some might think "only old people die of corona right?"

  • It's not like this virus equally targets all age groups the same way.

  • So some people think they will be ok anyways.

  • This Golden Week holiday week is the "Stay at Home week" right?

  • How much do you think people will actually do that?

  • I think some people will still go outside even when told to stay inside.

  • A week before we got told to stay inside, I have already started self-quarantining.

  • But the reason I could do this... my house has a large rooftop.

  • At my mansion the 6th 7th and the rooftop are all my house.

  • If I REALLY want to go outside, I can go to my rooftop.

  • But houses like that would be very expensive to rent in Tokyo.

  • I don't think other people are as lucky.

  • If people in Tokyo have kids...

  • Telling them to stay inside all day is tough.

  • But for everyone to be healthy, that is top priority.

  • Not having money is tough... I lost my freelance work too.

  • But this is the time for me to think about making an extra income indoors.

  • As long as we keep moving, there is always some way.

  • In these times is important to think positively and still try your best.

  • Endurance, staying inside all of this is important now.

  • Let's all try our best to stop the spread and end this as fast as possible - Let's do our best!

  • Stay healthy Hiroko. The most important thing for us is health! - True true!

  • Next year or after that, let's hang out again!

  • Once things are better, let's hang out! - Let's do that!

  • Thanks for the call! - Thank you toooo

  • She's got a YouTube channel too guys, don't forget to go over to Hiroko TV

  • check out what she's doing. She's doing an inside the home fitness challenge right now so

  • be sure to check it out! And thank you guys for tuning in! Stay safe, stay home

  • Let's keep our spirits up, we can get through this and I catch you soon for more stuff on Ask Japanese.

Are you ok? - No, I am worried what we will do for the upcoming rent at this rate.
