Via Japan Probe:

That’s a bad time to have a summer cold.

Japanese police use a robot arm to take care of some suspicious luggage during an anti-terror drill in Roppongi…The drill was part of the preparation for November’s APEC summit in Yokohama. It was meant to show how Japanese police are ready for terrorist threats against foreign dignitaries who may be staying on hotels in Tokyo/Yokohama. (Link)

Just another reason to stay away from Roppongi, Peter. And while you’re there, don’t use your credit card.
