HOKKAIDO (TR) – Hokkaido Prefectural Police have sent five male youths belonging to a bosozoku biker gang to prosecutors for allegedly riding dangerously in Sapporo last year, reports Nippon News Network (Jan. 31).

In October, a 19-year-old member of the gang Kyoran (Fury) allegedly was a part of a group of riders who ignored red traffic signals while slowly meandering their motorcycles between lanes in a manner considered dangerous on National Route 12 from Shiroishi Ward to Atsubetsu Ward.

The 19-year-old, who has been accused of violating the Road Traffic Act, denies the allegations, telling police that he did not ride that day.

According to police, Kyoran formed in the summer of last year. Since then, the group has repeatedly carried out rides considered dangerous through the heart of Sapporo.

In footage released by police on Wednesday, riders in white suits can be seen weaving their motorcycles back and forth on a road at night in November. On an extension of the seats, the lettering “Bosozoku Emergency Vehicle” is…

Shikotsuko's Haunted Hotel

 by Chihiro Ueno

You can hear the sounds of water lapping against the shore. Suddenly a white shadow appears! A ghost waits in the ruins of the hotel. This rumor is going around some of the bikers and the local circle of car enthusiasts.
Route 512, nicknamed, "the line between Sapporo and Shikotsu Lake," is a popular cruising course surrounded by forest. Along the way to Lake Shikotsu,sit the ruins of what some years ago was a lakeside hotel. A rumor has been spreading that a mysterious phenomenon has appeared at the hotel.
In the summer of 1993, two men in their mid-twenties left for the lake by car. While they were driving on the straight road surrounded by woods, they suddenly came across a two-story hotel. They stopped the car in a small vacant lot beside the road and started to walk to the hotel.
The windows were broken and the walls were crumbling. Standing in the moonlight, one man suddenly heard a loud sound. It was like a bomb going off, but the other man couldn't hear it.
Afraid, they decided to go back to their car. Getting close to the car, who should they meet there but a ghost. The white shadow seemed to be waiting for them. They quickly got into their car and drove away as fast as they could.
Actually, this story is quite popular among young people, and I have gone there several times. The following is my experience. The best time to go is late at night, commonly called "ushimitsu doki". This means "the most favored time for ghosts to appear." When you go during this time, you can really experience the horror. It is definitely worse than in the daytime.
The hotel looked like a lodging, and I thought it wasn't very old because its roof was steady and it seemed solidly built and not in such bad condition. It stands quietly in the center of the woods. It certainly seemed strange, but I didn't feel that it was a ghost…
