Nowhere, but Saturday morning in Shibuya without drinking being involved is hard to imagine.

Hello Kitty 321, the article didnt mention drinking but the area is very well known for the drinking and often the debris of a big night out can be seen lying around in the doorways and alley ways.

Nevertheless hope the victim comes round and is not permanently damaged form the ordeal.

Was probably repeatedly hit after he was already lying on the ground, knocked out. Hit , KO, hit again, coma.

Do we need more evidence on how bad it's getting? It's no coincidence we've seen more and more of these random violent crimes the past few years.

Having a feeling that there are "more" news stories of this or that in some media are not "evidence" of anything.
