Avoid Roppongi Bars and Clubs!

roppongi-16

The latest Warden Report: “The U.S. Embassy continues to recommend that American citizens avoid frequenting bars and clubs in the Roppongi area of Tokyo due to drink-spiking incidents. 

The U.S. Embassy continues to receive reliable reports of U.S. citizens being drugged in Roppongi-area bars.  Most reports indicate that the victim unknowingly drinks a beverage that has been secretly mixed with a drug that renders the victim unconscious or stuporous for several hours, during which time large charges are fraudulently billed to the victim, sums of money are charged to the victim’s credit card, or the card is stolen.  Victims sometimes regain consciousness in the bar or club, while at other times the victim awakens on the street.  Assaults on Americans have also been reported in connection with drink-spiking.

For further information, please consult the Country Specific Information Sheet for Japan, available via the Internet at http://travel.state.gov.” You can read the previous warning and information here.

BT reader Ken commented that:

1) A professional bartender always mixes drinks in full view of the customer who ordered it.

2) No one should ever accept a drink that they didn’t see being made.

    I had a great time in roppongi, some black guy talked me into a very shady place, i lost about 40000 yen and woke up in tsukiji fish market, i have no idea how i got there and that is really scary. If you do it like i did the next few times, just buy your drinks at the convenience stores drink them outside and then go dancing.

    just my 20Yen.

    Roppongi was once my favourite place to work as a hostess and these people came around and working with them make me realize how evil they were…especially the way they drugged and stole money from Japanese men they know how to fool Japanese women into marrying them and get them pregnant and after they got long term visa they go on hunting for different girlfriend…I have a lot to say about them…

[…] There have been reports and warnings of drink spiking since 2009: “The U.S. Embassy continues to receive reliable reports of U.S. citizens being drugged in Roppongi-area bars.  Most reports indicate that the victim unknowingly drinks a beverage that has been secretly mixed with a drug that renders the victim unconscious or stuporous for several hours, during which time large charges are fraudulently billed to the victim, sums of money are charged to the victim’s credit card, or the card is stolen.  Victims sometimes regain consciousness in the bar or club, while at other times the victim awakens on the street.  Assaults on Americans have also been reported in connection with drink-spiking.” Source […]
