I’ve previously noted that the United States is treating tourists as if they were criminals, and now it appears that this practice is now spreading further, with Japan set to require foreign tourists to be fingerprinted and photographed upon entry.

While it is hard to see how this will help one iota to reduce terrorism (especially given that the only terrorist attacks upon Japan have come from within), it’s clear that such measures result in a drop in tourist numbers, as travellers find there are more convenient places to enjoy.
