Wearing something out of protest like the star of David......
Well, I got to tell ya, you already carry your TOROKUSHOMEISHO with you.
You already, register at the Yakuba every time you move residence, re-new your
visa, re-new your passport and just in case they can't keep up with you, you also
have all your details, filled in for you, every time you stay at a hotel.
Unless you are lucky to have the Long Term Special Permanent Visa.
...I only have the ordinary permanent visa ;-( ....
There is more. your new TOROKUSHOMEISHO is now IC chipped, and the drivers lisence from next year will be likewise. Your mobile phone has a locator in it.
At the air-port, visa holders need to have re-entry permits, visa holders are no longer allowed to enter in the main-stream with their families, think how that feels to a father/mother who teaches their child that all are equal, and then at the customs, they have to line up in a SPECIAL QUEUE.
We already have a bell in our hand, the only diference is that we are not made to say "unclean" as we walk through town !
Now, before somebody tells me that I should quit Japan and blah, blah, blah.....
Living here for 14 years, paying taxes, never being arrested, never cheating on my job or my family, does earn me a little bit of space when it comes to a rant every now and again.
We are already coded, processed, and catagorised, there is no need to wear a star....
up untill 5 years ago, you had to be finger printed every time you re-newed your TOROKUSHOMEISHO.
So please, do not give the powers that be any more ideas on how to keep us apart from the local populace.
