Japan has announced that they will be extending their State of Emergency, which was originally scheduled to expire this Monday for several more weeks, with the latest extension including Tokyo and Osaka, according to a report from The Washington Post who note that a lower state of alert has also been extended within five prefectures until late next month.

As of writing, there has been no word from any Japanese promotion in regards to any changes to their schedules following the latest extension as New Japan Pro Wrestling have three events scheduled to take place in Tokyo next week, with two at the Korakuen Hall and one at the Ota Ward Gymnasium, while Pro Wrestling NOAH are scheduled to hold their Mitsuhara Misawa Memorial Show this Monday from the Korakuen Hall.

Additionally, New Japan Pro Wrestling are scheduled to hold Dominion 2021 in the Osaka-jo Hall on Sunday, June 6th, while CyberAgent, the parent company of DDT Pro Wrestling and Pro Wrestling NOAH are scheduled to hold their CyberFight Festival on the same date at the Saitama Super Arena.

In regards to the Olympic Games itself, there continues to be great resistance by the Japanese public regarding the country’s insistence on holding the event this July, as well as how the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines has been handled, with the country’s vaccination rate said to be at only 2.3% of its population of 125 million.
