So it is ok to refuse service to non japanese, but it is racist when non japanese wear a kimono? Got it.

Tattoos and bath/pool/gym. The everyday world traveller cannot exercise nor relax. Police "randomly" search foreignors in crowds of Japanese. Any infraction upon a Japanese national is the fault of the non japanese, whomever started the conflict.
Turning away people just because they are not Japanese.
This is Japan's country, not mine....
However, a few stories of this can circulate quite far. Hurting tourism

Its ok... Say good bye to repeat tourism.
2020 may be a huge cluster bomb...
No dancing after 12, foreigners targeted by "random" checks, foreigners turned away at restaurants for being non japanese...
How will the athletes exercise if they have tattoos?
I await the train wreck with a full bag of popcorn...

For 4 years stationed at Yokosuka base... Every morning... No matter what we were doing.... We would have to stand freeze and salute for the American anthem and then the Japan anthem...

It is weird. If they dont pay homage... Then they disrespect the majority of the fallen who are buried there... If they pay homage, they disrespect other countries by the minority of war criminals who are buried there...
The majority/ minority of the people there are dead.
If I visited my father's grave and someone said I was wrong because of who was buried five spaces down... Ask me if I would care?
These other countries are making these small things national news... Then praise assassins who murdered Japanese officials.... Do their best to provoke some kind of response from Japan.

However, the girl showed no signs of having been physically abused, they said.

Good luck when the olympics are here... No dancing in clubs, no tattoos on the beach.... Next will be "no walking without a Japanese national present"
White_ShinobiJun. 24, 2014 - 06:31AM JST
I hope this goes into effect.. I have been shushed on several occasions as well for dancing. It is so weird that you cant dance legally....
Tokyo olympics? Lol lets sweep some laws under the carpet.... Its going to be hilarious. Not only for dancing laws... But also marijuana and tattoo laws as well ;)
Let the fun begin ;)
