Japan: "ridiculously crazy, but true!"

Geoffrey is incarcerated in Osaka, Japan. He regularly exchanges letters with the Prison Insider team, and was asked to describe how a regular day is spent. He has described his working and non-working days and underlined the special treatment reserved for foreign prisoners.

After more than three months of silence, he has sent another testimonial which is soon to be published. Geoffrey begins his letter by apologizing for his delayed response, and provides some very interesting information on how the Japanese prison system works on a daily basis.
