Los Angeles has been a beautiful season with bright sunshine and various flowers blooming all over the city.
California poppy, a symbol of wildflowers, unfortunately has few flowers this year, and it's far from the scenery that people were excited to say that it was a once-in-a-century super blooming in 2017 and 2019, but along the freeway. Rape blossoms and poppies compete for beauty and entertain us,

In California as a whole, 23.2 million COVID 19 vaccines have already been vaccinated, of which 8.55 million have been vaccinated as many times as needed, which is 21.6% of the population.
One in five Californians will be vaccinated at a high speed, and I think we can see the strength of the United States. Regulations such as California, Los Angeles, and Los Angeles International Airport have also clearly changed post-immigration regulations for vaccinated and non-vaccinated people.
Japanese customers also hope that the days when they can travel freely after vaccination will come one step further.


Eating and drinking in restaurants is restricted in various places including Los Angeles, but it has resumed and the city is beginning to regain its vitality. The reopening of the theme parks that everyone has been waiting for has begun in sequence.
Disneyland Resort > Reservation required 04/30/2021 Open Knott's Berry Farm > Reservation required 05/21/2021 Open Universal Studios > Reservation required 04/16/2021 open

Sports such as baseball will also be held with an increasing number of spectators.


Airmail from Japan is gradually returning to normal.

We will inform you about vaccine information from Los Angeles, USA.
Today, I have been vaccinated against corona at a pharmacy in Little Tokyo.
Most people have muscle aches and mild fever, so I was told to be relieved, and I'm watching the situation with a little excitement. There are no noticeable symptoms so far, so I am relieved.
Although California is slow to resume vaccines and economic activity, it is making progress every day.
Six Flags Magic Mountain is also open on April 15th.
The bubble head doll of Angels Otani, who has been doing well since the beginning of the season, will be a fan present earlier this year, and is scheduled for April 16th.
The other day, the news that the Texas Rangers had accepted the number of spectators to the stadium to the full was reported in Japan as well.
What will happen to the admission restrictions for this Angels match?
Like Nomo, who caused a big whirlwind in Los Angeles, which was not energetic due to the LA riots long ago.
I'm looking forward to Otani blowing off the corona!

California is famous for Los Angeles, San Francisco and Silicon Valley, but the first industry is agriculture. The production of lettuce is one in the United States, and the production of milk is also very large. Next to that are nuts and raisins. The flowers in the almond fields that spread to the left and right are in full bloom while going north on the 5th freeway last weekend, and I took a detour with the flowers. I feel like cherry blossom viewing in an almond field while I can't meet Japanese cherry blossoms 🌸. When you get out of the car, you will get on the spring breeze and the almond tofu scent. The scent of almond essence was the scent of this flower. Speaking of agriculture, there is a story that Mr. Gates is trying to buy up an area called the agricultural belt in the United States, but I am wondering if it will be food instead of oil that will hold the world from now on.

This is an announcement from Los Angeles International Airport.
From 2/01/2021, wearing a mask at the airport is compulsory. Speaking of which, I'm surprised that it wasn't mandatory until now, but this time I will share the details from the form of the mask to the material. Basically, two or more layers of cloth masks are basic, and scarves and ski masks are not allowed. It cannot be used with face shields or goggles alone, and must be shared with a cloth mask.
Children under 2 years old are not required. You can talk with a mask while eating and drinking, but a mask is essential when talking between meals.

How is everyone doing?
In Los Angeles, the regulation of Regional Stay Home Order, which has been in effect since last year, has finally been relaxed from 1/25. Until now, going out from 10 pm to morning was prohibited, and restaurants etc. were delivery or takeout only.
As a result, even Downtown Disney, which expanded the liberated area to Disney California Adventure, was unable to eat or drink outdoors. Outdoor eating and drinking will be resumed from January 29th this Friday, and I think that the city has returned to energy and vitality.
Economic resumption (1) In Kashu, Regional Stay Home Order is suspended (1/25)
(2) In LA County, outdoor eating and drinking is permitted from 29th (Friday) (1/25)
(3) SD County companies prepare for resumption (1/25)
(4) In Kashu, the curfew was lifted (1/25)
(5) The SD mayor sets the upper limit of the fee that the meal delivery app can lend to the restaurant (1/25)

2 Vaccinations are steadily progressing, albeit with delays. Vaccinations that were previously over 70 years old have been reduced to be available from age 65.
(1) In Kashu, vaccination has been shifted to age standards (1/25)

We will inform you again after reconfirming the regulations of national parks, etc. where commercial admission was prohibited.
We are moving forward step by step through trial and error in balancing the economy and infection prevention.
On weekends, I'll go out to the city and tell you what's going on!

Due to strict regulations, restaurants can only take out, and there is a stay home ordinance in Los Angeles. Over the weekend, I went a little further to explore the home of Jennifer, the girlfriend of Marty, one of the nostalgic movie back-to-the-future film locations 40 minutes northeast of downtown Los Angeles. It was used in Part 3 when Marty, who returned to the present day from 1885, came to see Jennifer taking a nap on the white bench on the balcony on the left side of the house in the form of a Western cowboy.
Although it is now a private residence, the color of the outer wall of the house and the key point benches remain as they are, and I feel the love of the movie by the current residents.
It is supported by such love that you can still see the location.
Thank you.

This is Naomi Elephant Tour.
We are pleased to inform you that immigration documents to be submitted by customers arriving at LAX related to Corona are now required.
This rule was issued on November 27/2020.

It is a document to the effect that you will comply with the rules of Los Angeles when you enter the country. It seems that customers can apply in advance from the website or use their mobile phones after arriving in Los Angeles.
All you need is a simple phone number, name, email address, etc.
I think it would be nice to let people from Japan know in advance.
However, as the laws and regulations change frequently, changes may occur.
You will not forget it because the staff will ask you when you enter Japan, but be careful as the fine is $ 500.
https://travel.lacity.o…
If you read the beginning of the document, you can enter the country for essential travelers such as study, work and medical care.
However, out-of-state and international migrants, including residents, need to be quarantined for 14 days.
We are currently unable to accept visits such as travel and outdoor recreation.
It may be time to put up with it to stop the infection around the world.
