[2021/9/4 ~ Low risk throughout Shanghai]
From late July, the spread of Delta strains was temporarily settled, and the entire city of Shanghai returned to a low-risk area. As a result, travel and travel across provinces will resume.
Since I was able to move across provinces, I rented a car during this time and moved out of Shanghai. In China, it is not possible to rent a car with a foreign driver's license yet, but it seems that mutual certification of experimental exemption is being carried out with some countries. This time we will also deliver the state of the rental car.
As of August 30, 2021, there are no new infections due to community-acquired infections throughout China. From the end of July, the spread of infection by the Delta strain seems to have temporarily subsided. In addition, the number of "high risk areas" throughout China has been reduced to zero. Domestic movements in China and people's lives are returning to normal.
The end of August is the time for Chinese students to go abroad to study in the United States and other countries. International students who could not attend school in 2020 Corona will finally be able to go to school this summer in 2021. A long line appears in front of the check-in counters at major international airports in China.
The other day, we picked up and dropped off at Hangzhou Airport. I feel sad in front of the international departure. A place where you can enjoy and expect to travel is a place where you can leave your family. Parents cannot easily see their children overseas because they cannot easily return to the country with Corona. International students at this time are also courageous.
[All areas of Shanghai are low-risk areas]
The spread of infection by Delta strains has been temporarily suppressed in China, and the number of new infections continues to decrease. Since August 17, it has been designated as a low-risk area throughout Shanghai.
I went for a walk to the "Kokita area", which is an area where Japanese people live in Shanghai. Although the number of Japanese people has decreased from before Corona, Shanghai, which is still the largest Japanese city in the world, has delivered a video of the current state of the Japanese town.
[Scenery of tourist spots due to the spread of corona infection]
Originally, August is the summer vacation season, which is the most popular time for domestic travel in China. Unfortunately, in China, where the corona was temporarily suppressed, travel reservations nationwide were canceled one after another at the end of July due to the sudden spread of local infection.
It is a travel opportunity for people in non-infected areas.
The other day, I attended a tour to the water town "Xitang" in Zhejiang Province.
It became a quiet tourist destination, but I was able to fully enjoy the scenery.
[Closed tourist spots due to typhoon No. 6]
Typhoon No. 6 is forecast to land in Zhejiang during the daytime on the 25th, and most tourist destinations in Shanghai and Zhejiang will be closed on the 25th and 26th. Shanghai Disneyland will also be closed for two days. Passenger flights to / from Shanghai Pudong Airport, Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, and Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport have been canceled all day on the 25th.
[To open the world's largest astronomical museum]
The Shanghai Astronomical Museum was opened on July 18 as the world's largest heavenly building with a building area of 38,000 m2. We limit the capacity to 5,000 people daily, but tickets are sold out daily.
We will also deliver the video that entered the museum on the first day.
[Shanghai Disneyland to raise ticket prices]
Shanghai Disneyland has announced an increase in ticket prices from January 9, 2022.
Regular 399 yuan → 439 yuan Regular plus 499 yuan → 545 yuan Peak 599 yuan → 659 yuan Peak plus 699 yuan → 769 yuan
Both will be raised by around 10%.
[To resume performance of Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe]
For the first time in a year and three months, the Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe "ERA Space-Time Journey" has resumed performances at Shanghai Circus World.
Initially, it will be performed only on Saturdays and Sundays, but after August it will be performed every day except Mondays.
I was excited to see the first day of the performance.
Ticket reservations have also resumed.
[After Corona is likely to become a new sanctuary in Shanghai]
LaLaport is the first overseas expansion, but I went to "LaLaport Shanghai Kinbashi store". With a total floor area of approximately 146,000 square meters, it is located in Pudong Shin District, Shanghai. Many Japanese facilities are open on the 1st to 6th floors. "UNIQLO", "JINS", "VS PARK", "Play Park Plus", etc.
The highlight is the full-scale Freedom Gundam statue, which boasts a height of 18.03m.
[Danobushi three consecutive holidays]
This weekend is the three consecutive holidays of the Chinese traditional holiday "Danobushi". In China, it is customary to eat rice dumplings and hold dragon boat races on this day. Today, I saw a dragon boat race preparing for the lake in front of Shanghai Disney Resort. It seems interesting to row a boat on the same lake as Donald.
[EV car that costs less than 500,000 yen]
In an online interview from Japan, we supported the test drive experience of the super-discount "Goryo Hiromitsu" Mini-EV, which has become a hot topic in China. It is on sale at an exceptional price of 2.88 yuan ~ (460,000 yen ~), which is an unthinkable price. It achieved a miraculous record of 270,000 units in 10 months. It suddenly overtook Tesla to become the best-selling EV car in the Chinese market. I actually tried to verify where the secret and ability are.
In addition to online interviews, I also took videos. You can also see the ordinary town of Shanghai, so if you like, please watch the video to see what is happening in Shanghai today.
[Full-scale Freedom Gundam statue open]
A full-scale Freedom Gundam statue with a height of 18.03m appeared on May 28th at the commercial facility "LaLaport Shanghai Kinbashi" in Pudong New Area. The completion ceremony was attended by Chinese actor Yoon Tadashi, who professes to be a Gundam fan.
"LaLaport Shanghai Jinqiao" is holding the first large-scale Gundam event "GUNDAM docks at shanghai" in mainland China until July 11. We also have a corner to introduce the history of Gundam and anime, a free trial of plastic models, and many limited-edition products.
