Пару десятков лет назад Алекс Ански рассказывал по радио, что тюрьма в Японии самая суровая и по жёсткости содержания многие легендарные тюрьмы с ней и близко не стоят.Строго у японцев. Вышак за всего одного жмура, причем на основании косвенных улик. Не забалуешь!
Они вроде практикуют шибари в качестве наказания.
if you push the limits when you are in, so you got punished. It is like this: one hand is to tied up to nape and the other one is to back waist reversely. You gotta stay, sit, sleep, go to toilet simply live like this for one month or more depending on the mistake you have done. After you have finished, the special doctor unties the knots. Give a try for one hour and you will see what happens after untie.
An elderly man who had spent eight years in the Fuchu prison, before his release in 1992, described being placed in a "protective cell" when he was seventy-one years old. He had provoked a fight in a prison factory and, as a result, he was placed in a "protection cell" for a month. Throughout that period, his hands were bound with leather handcuffs: his left arm was in the front and his right arm was in the back of his body. He sat all day long in the cross-legged position. The "protection cell" had no windows, and it had fluorescent lights. He was made to wear pants which were split in the crotch so he could use the toilet without using his hands. He ate his food in what he described as "dog" fashion, lying on the floor and picking it up off the plate with his mouth. After the month in the "protection cell," he was transferred to solitary confinement as his formal punishment of twenty-one days. The former prisoner reported that he suffers from back pain to this day, the fact he attributes to the month spent in restraints.
