Indefinite Ban Threatened on Off-Base Bars

Date Posted: 2000-08-25

U.S. Military officials are threatening to impose an off-limits rule indefinitely on the islandís bar and disco areas, most notably in Nakanomachi in Okinawa City, unless the bar and restaurant owners come up with better mesures to control underage drinking. The military officials made their statement in a letter they sent to town and village offices located around the bases. In the letter they urge shops that sell alcoholic drinks to post English-language signs outside their establishments asking patrons to show their IDs as a proof of their age. The also want to send out unarmed patrols to police the behavior of American servicemembers in the areas. Such patrols have been requested in the past, but are resisted by the Japanese Police. The bar owners in Kin Town say that if the curfews and off-limits rules are imposed, they will be out of business. Bar owners in Nakanomachi have voiced similar concerns.
