Does Japan Have Capacity Laws?
I'd like to go to Japan, but I'm deathly afraid of two things that I'd find there: Tremendously high prices and extreme levels of urban overcrowding.
I came across this video of a artificial wave swimming pool in Tokyo, and thought to myself, This is totally nuts… Where are the capacity laws?
I get the impression that the Japanese are generally fearful of their police state government, and as a result are a law-abiding bunch—though perhaps a notch below Singapore.
But with the dense urban living conditions, claustrophobically packed mass transit, and an (apparent) lack of cultural personal space, I'm left wondering if lawsuit mitigation is the only reason one would even bother posting such a thing as a capacity limit in Japan. Then, again, I've never been to Japan, and don't even know if such things exist there.
