Pork Dinner

September 25th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

A story surfaced last week in the Mainichi Daily News about a restaurant in the Roppongi district of Tokyo (home to many U.S. expats which used to be seedy but has in recent years gone luxe) where you can supposedly fuck a live chicken, dog, goat, or pig, have it slaughtered for you, and then EAT IT.

Every time I’ve attempted to write about this, I’ve thrown up in my mouth and aborted. But there are a lot of “facts” in the story that are fishy (I think you can fuck one of those, too, I just don’t really know how), which are broken down nicely in the blog Neojaponisme. Neojaponisme points out that the original story comes from a publication called Jitsuwa Knuckles. This is what it looks like:

Now, I can’t read Japanese, so I can’t verify whether or not Jitsuwa Knuckles is a legitimate news source, but it sure as shit does not look like one.

Also, the one eyewitness who claims to have been to the restaurant, works at an S&M club (not that we’ve got anything against sex workers, but read on).

“Apparently, the restaurant started off quietly in the basement of a building that a real estate agent in Roppongi who couldn’t find any other tenants,” an S&M club worker identified only as M tells Jitsuwa Knuckles. “News about the restaurant spread through word of mouth and it became popular.”

“An S&M club worker identified only as M” is the only source for this pork-riffic story? At the very least, that’s shoddy journalism. Also, as Neojaponisme points out, this story sound suspiciously like all the other Wacky Jap stories that are circulating the web, along with the innumerable tales of those Evil Baby-Killing Chinese.

If anyone else has the skinny on porking one’s dinner in Tokyo, we would love to hear from you. In the meantime, best of luck keeping your lunch down after reading this.
