Ginza in Tokyo as of a little before noon, on Sunday April 19th, 2020.

The total number of the corona virus infected people in Tokyo reached 3,000 on April 19th, 2020. The Government issued a state-of-emergency declaration on April 7th to request the citizens to stay home. The picture shows Ginza, the high-end shopping street in Tokyo like Fifth Avenue in New York, with few people even on weekends. As all the shops here are closed according to the Government request, there were no shoppers but some curious crowds including me.
