In No refuge from booze in Tokyo, paradise for alcoholics in denial (Foreign Agenda, Japan Times, January 15), William Bradbury, a freelance writer and musician based in Tokyo, describes how there is no moratorium on alcohol consumption once end of the year holidays are over.
He describes Tokyo as a place where you can consume alcohol 24/7 as there is always a place opened selling it.
According to his piece, no one will voice their opinion or intervene if faced with a drunk disorderly conduct except the police.
William Bradbury is also involved in some form with music outfit The Zeppo who released Moratorium (free download).
