POLICE in Japan are raiding and shutting down nightclubs for the crime of dancing.

Under the Law on Control and Improvement of Amusement Business (fueiho) any establishment that allows dancing must obtain a license. To obtain the license venues must have a main room with at least 66m2 of unobstructed floor space and the club must close by either midnight or 1am.

In an interview with EyesCream magazine in 2012 DJ Emma said: "Every weekend, we DJs are breaking the law."

Until now that law has not been strictly enforced. But a recent series of nightclub raids and arrests have Japan's nightclub scene rattled. Australians heading out for a night of dancing in Japan could be seriously disappointed.

"Venues routinely post 'No dancing' signs, with some even sending staff onto the floor to ask customers to stop moving to the music. Nightclubs advertise themselves with vague descriptions like 'entertainment space', and expressly forbid any use of the word 'dance' in advertising copy. In the case of one world-famous party spot in Shibuya, you won't even find the term 'DJ' used anywhere on their website," Time Out Tokyo said.

Japan has been gradually losing their freedoms over the last 5-10 years.

it started with the draconian smoking bans on the streets.

they also shake down foreigners for drugs and make them take piss tests.
LOL apparently Koreans overseas are subject to Korean law whilst abroad meaning if they piss pos for weed or X when they return they get in shit.

They should test EVERY Korean TESOL student under 30 that returns, they ALL (well 90%) take E in Sydney.

Actually dont do that E makes Korean girls very un-racist and cudley in clubs, getting random massages off Korean hotties at Home nightclub was awesome especially when they trip out and get overheated and strip down to their bra tops.
