Japanese government bends law to target foreigners

Ministry missive wrecks reception
MHLW asks hotels to enforce nonexistent law

from the Japan Times:
Between Oct. 7-11, the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT), Japan's largest convocation of language educators, held its annual meeting in Shizuoka, a pleasant city between Tokyo and Osaka.

Having hosted JALT before, Shizuoka is quite accustomed to taking in thousands of English-speaking foreigners.

This time around, however, Shizuoka decided to accommodate their guests with another lovely service: ID checks before bedtime.
