Tbh, my friends got me obsessed with Terrace House so here I am!
Is sakura season over?
Don't know where you are but the peak is over for Kanto and most of Kansai but there might be some still left. In Tokyo, it rained a lot last night so a lot of them might be gone. If you go up nor...
Are things going to go completely back to normal in Japan on March 7th?
They say they're going to decide by the end of the month whether to extend state of emergency. But yeah, last time, most people went straight back to normal which is why things got worse again.
Basically it's "Excuse me for commenting when I don't follow you, and you don't follow me." Japanese twitter manners.

How do we apply for the government money?

Can I bring my bike on a train?
Well, you can but not as is. You have to take it apart and put it in a bicycle bag (called rinko bukuro/bag). If it's a hassle, you can always rent a bike at Showa Kinen!
