Mock Meat.

I've been fascinated with Japan- the land of the absurd. So when i realised my dream of visiting Tokyo last year (June 2009 post), i was pretty excited to find out for myself if internet news is real news.

Stories i've heard included shit restaurants (where girls excrete in front of you and you dig in their feces according to flavours which is influenced by girls' diets), school girl's saliva for sale and the strangest stuff in vending machines.

I've also heard about the human sushi platter (but never experienced it),

where you literally eat sushi/ food off a human plate.
Japan is a country that dumbfounds everyone. One of the blogs i read wrote about Issei Sagawa's detailed account of eating his victim. What shocks me is how can his countrymen be supportive of him? He was aquainted of his crime and guilt after being deported back to Japan ( crime happened in France). And it wasn't only because his dad was a prominent industrialist, Issei became a CELEBRITY!

"A year after his release, Sagawa wrote the aforementioned book (now out of print) In The Fog in which he describes, in meticulous detail, the murder, rape, and consumption of Renee Hartevelt.....(he was also) on various Japanese television shows, mainly guest spots on talk shows wanting to speak with the famed cannibal who 'got away with it'....Sagawa, who is now 51, has taken up painting. Many of his paintings focus on women's asses (no surprise there), but like all serial killer art, it has a fame that far outdistances its quality of production"

He even has Rolling Stones writing a song about him, and has appeared in Japanese PORN!

Now, he is penning a manga re-telling of the murder. Why are his countrymen putting money into his pocket for his crime??
Read a summary of the incident here.

And so, is it not surprising that Japan has caught on Cannibalism?

Look what i found on the Internet. There is a restaurant in Japan where you can mimick Cannibalism. For normal (or not?!) people to have sick fun eating fake humans. Like the themed restaurants found in Taiwan, Hong Kong (Toilet restaurant, Jail restaurant).

They use utensils and pretend to be a surgeon, choosing which part to eat first. Re-enacting what a cannibal would do in troes of passion.

Not entirely sure how to proceed with eating a person, Issei Sagawa decided to start with the rear-end (which is only sensible). He grabbed a sturdy knife from the kitchen and proceeded to cut into the dead girl's flesh.

"Suddenly a lot of sallow fat oozes from the wound. It reminds me of Indian corn. It continues to ooze. It is strange. Finally I find the red meat under the sallow fat. I scoop it out and put it in my mouth. I chew. It has no smell and no taste. It melts in my mouth like a perfect piece of tuna.

I look in her eyes and say: 'You are delicious.' "
At this restaurant, the innards of their human IS their meal. They're all edible. Probably full of unhealthy food colouring. It's like having vegetarian mock meat.
You want real meat, but you can't have real meat.

The thing is, i wonder if all these Internet news is really true because i went to Japan, all hyped to find out for myself but out of the checklist, i only found used panties for sale.

Can i say that Singaporeans are quite a boring/ stingy normal bunch because themed restaurants obviously  cannot surive here ( look at Igor's, the vampire themed restaurant).

I'd say i will try this restaurant if i come across it in my next trip to Japan but i might chicken out. After all, i didn't dare go sniff the used panties to find out for myself if it's just a marketing ploy for men with fetishes.

"My passion is so great. I want to eat her. If I do she will be mine forever.There is no escape from this desire- Issei Sagawa"
Perhaps from now on, lovers shouldn't say "i want to eat your P***Y or D**K", it might cause misunderstandings.
