Lover Gives Girl's Father the Finger. Literally.

Friday, October 29, 2004 Posted: 11:10 AM JST

The blog Tokyo Times is carrying a story about a 38-year-old ex-Yakuza member who tried to persuade a father to let him date his 15-year-old daughter. No expensive presents, deep bows and pretty words for this love lost former gangster. Instead, he gave the girl's father the finger. Literally. He cut off his little finger and mailed it to the father. Naturally the father wasn't exactly pleased. After receiving the finger two times in a row he informed the police. They dutifully arrested the fingerless lover.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
