This is one way in Tokyo that cops find people that are here illegally.  They stop them and check that their bikes are properly registered and usually learn that the person isn't.    This worried expression didn't leave this guys face the entire time I was there so I can imagine the outcome of this stop...

I love Tokyo becoming more smoke free.  There is nothing worse than walking behind someone smoking and getting a face full of their smoke.  I am fine if people want to smoke, I just don't want to also be smoking along with them.
