Current status of sporting events in Japan

With the lifting of the state of emergency declaration, the maximum capacity for holding events will be limited to "5,000 people or 50% of the capacity, whichever is greater" or "10,000 people, whichever is less."

However, if there is a positive case in the team, the game may be canceled or postponed. This week, in the B-League, a player of the Koshigaya Alphas tested positive, so the upcoming game of the Koshigaya Alphas was canceled, and the Gunma Crane Thunders, who played against the Koshigaya Alphas a few days ago, also had to cancel their upcoming game just in case they were possibly infected. The Ibaraki Robots have also tested positive and their games have been canceled until April 4.

Current status of Theme Parks in Japan

Tokyo Disneyland has set the number of visitors to be no more than 10,000 per day until March 31, 2021, and from April 1, 2021, it will be no more than 20,000 per day.

*The normal number of visitors per day is around 70,000 for Disneyland and 50,000 for DisneySea.
