Leading New channel has shared a hilarious story from a trip to the land of the Rising sun.
Ultra-modern and simultaneously traditional – Alexander Pedan comments on Japan. Leading reality “X’s” have recently returned from nearly three weeks of travel during which travel about 10 thousand km.
Visited the North island of Hokkaido for a few days, stopped by in the Japanese city of Kyoto, the capital city of Tokyo and even went to the far South.
We were in places where Europeans did not see, – with a smile says Alexander. One Japanese grandmother living in the South, seeing the tattoos on my body, wiping them with your fingers. Because I thought that those drawn. And as for the same tattoos I was not allowed in the bath.

They have no right to ban, says Pedan. But if most visitors because you will have discomfort, you will be asked to leave the room. The whole trip only once happened to me a similar situation. I didn’t argue because I saw fear on the faces of the Japanese. Of course, they were very apologetic. After all, I understand that I’m no Yakuza, but to risk the tranquility of the customers didn’t want. To be honest, I thought that like me in Japan to happen more often (smiles).
