Japan hardly restricted anything. Contrary to popular opinion it also hasn’t had a good test and trace.
One theory is that a similar virus has previously run through the population and made it a mild illness for more people.

See my previous post - they did restrict. I work with Japanese colleagues daily... and they did cluster tracing I believe.
My firm has now made the unprecedented change to a flexible wfh model ongoing in Japan... it even made bbc news... it is wrong to think that very little changed during the worst of it, or that there is no lasting change.

I travel to Japan (or did) frequently and have at least weekly calls with people in Tokyo - I have no idea where you are getting your ‘facts’ from.

I travel to Japan (or did) frequently and have at least weekly calls with people in Tokyo - I have no idea where you are getting your ‘facts’ from.
I was reading articles on it including the BBC which honestly I’d prefer over your anecdotal evidence and chats with colleagues - BBC say it’s not that great-

“As the virus spread, it quickly became clear that Covid is a disease that primarily kills the elderly and is massively amplified by crowds or prolonged close contact. Per capita, Japan has more elderly than any other country. Japan's population is also densely packed into huge cities.
Greater Tokyo has a mind-boggling 37 million people and for most of them, the only way to get around is on the city's notoriously packed trains.
Then there is Japan's refusal to heed the advice of the World Health Organization (WHO) to "test, test, test". Even now, total PCR tests stand at just 348,000, or 0.27% of Japan's population.
Nor has Japan had a lockdown on the scale or severity of Europe. In early April, the government ordered a state of emergency. But the stay-at-home request was voluntary. Non-essential businesses were asked to close, but there was no legal penalty for refusing.
Many paragons of Covid strategy, such as New Zealand and Vietnam, used tough measures including closing borders, tight lockdowns, large-scale testing and strict quarantines - but Japan did none of that.
Yet, five months after the first Covid case was reported here, Japan has fewer than 20,000 confirmed cases and fewer than 1,000 deaths. The state of emergency has been lifted, and life is rapidly returning to normal.“

We do almost more tests in a day than they have done altogether!

Although the testing regime was such you had to have specific symptoms to have a test unlike here I believe
