  • have a question i hope can be answered; i noticed the camerawoman has tattoos and is asian. i have read/watched that tattoos are extremely taboo in japan and asian tourists who have them might be scrutinized more than white tourists. to what degree is this accurate? im aware that onsen and gyms are mostly off limits but what about everything else. i am more curious how japanese locals feel about tattoos; like are they so stigmatized that it would be difficult getting to know people there?
