When will the Covid-19 pandemic end? There is no answer to this question. Although the Covid-19 situation has been contained, the threats of new variants and virus mutations are still lurking. This is why safety protocols are being exercised all over the world, especially in Japan.

The Japanese people take safety protocols seriously. Even before the global pandemic, the people in Japan wear face masks everyday. One of the reasons is because they want to protect themselves from the flu and other diseases. Another reason is because they want to avoid getting sick. And lastly, they want to keep their face clean and free from any dirt and pollution.

If you are planning to visit Japan anytime soon, here is a guide for some of the common safety protocols being practiced in the country.

Mask Up
Face masks should be worn at any time you are in close contact with other people, especially if you are unable to social distance. Wearing of face masks outdoors is encouraged if we cannot maintain a distance of at least 2 meters from the person you are conversing with. In Japan, there are many establishments that hand out free face masks for their visitors or customers. If you are unsure when you should wear a face mask, bear in mind the 3Cs: Closed (any space with poor ventilation), Crowded (any space with too many people nearby, social distancing cannot be implemented) and Close Contact (conversing very close to anyone).

Sanitize Hands
Bringing a hand sanitizer or an alcohol with you anytime and anywhere is more like a normal thing to do. We have to sanitize our hands regularly to prevent the spread of disease. In Japan, almost all facilities and shops have alcohol sprays available for anyone to use. You can see them in the entrance, in the counters and in any strategic location to encourage their customers to sanitize their hands from time to time.


Stay at Home
All establishments in Japan are conducting temperature checks before they allow anyone to enter their facility. If your temperature is higher (above 37.5°C or 99.5°F) than the normal body temperature, you may be dismissed from entering the facility. Therefore, if you are feeling unwell or have a low-grade fever (temperature between 99.5°F or 37.5°C and 100.3°F or 38.3°C), better stay at home and rest. It is important to stay at home when you have a fever because it is a way to prevent the spread of infection. When you have a fever, your body is fighting off an infection, and you are more likely to spread the infection to others.

The act of bowing is a highly important part of Japanese culture. It is a way of showing respect and appreciation, and can be seen as a sign of good manners. In the new normal, where physical distance is practiced, most Japanese prefer bowing rather than giving a handshake or a hug as a greeting to another person. With bowing, there is no physical contact and you can maintain a distance from the person you are bowing to. Tourists can also do likewise. Do not worry if you cannot perform a perfect bow. The effort itself and the respect you give when you bow as a greeting to a person makes it a very beautiful gesture.





If you want a convenient and hassle free renting procedure, go with KaguAruoo. The previous operation of the monthly apartment has these complicated face-to-face contract signing, payment confirmation, telephone correspondence, etc, but with KaguAruoo, you can complete everything online – from selecting a furnished apartment, sending inquiries to the landlord, signing the lease contract and paying for the rent.

Renting a furnished apartment in Tokyo has never been simpler.
