April 7, 2020. The first "state of emergency" is declared in Tokyo. People were terrified by the pandemic of an unknown virus, and the city fell silent. That was just one year ago. Now, a year later, the state of emergency has been extended for the third time. The threat of the virus still persists, but what about the fear in people's hearts?
