When we went at night last year, we had to pass a breathalyzer before being allowed to board Diving Coaster. I can't say I've ever had that happen anywhere else, so I'm not surprised they'd ask before you board the Enterprise.
Did they still have that weird haunt where they give you an LED candle and measure your fear by how much it shakes?
yah, we TRIED to scream high pitch. . but couldn't quite get it high enough (wasn't about to squeeze anything to achieve higher. . ).
No breathalyzer, just the question on the Enterprise. . but what a great story it would have made if we were asked to blow before being crammed into that coaster!
as to the haunt with the candle - if it *was* still there, I didn't experience it. Was it over across the water, in the "town" section? it looked like there were quite a few walkthru attractions there that we bypassed (other than the ice house). so would think it might be in that section.
the only "haunt" we did was the dark ride in the cage.

Tobu Zoo/ Tobu Pool was one of a couple of parks on the trip that had really strict rules about tattoos. (as in, cover them up and do not show anything).
The other park we were going to later today, Toshimaen, had similar restrictions.
No one in our group was impacted or asked to leave, as we had lots of warning from Elissa to ensure we were aware to cover up if we had any tattoos that showed.
I did not see a lot of tattoos on folks while in Japan, although I did see quite a few folks with ear plugs, and other piercings. So I guess the body modification stigma is really only focused on the ink portion?
regardless, as a visitor to the Country, it's not my place to question the rules at all. It's only for me to respect them, and we did.

I believe, but could be mistaken, that tattoos in Japan have a history with Yakuza (the Japanese "mafia"), wheres really only Yakuza members would get tattoos. Probably has something to do with that.

Not being able to experience Kawasemi at full force was a disappointment, as I was one of only 2-3 people on every train they ran over the course of an hour. But even slow, it was still a really fun ride.
