Their names are Gokhan and Mehmet, those are two of the most Turkish names ever.

Maybe he means that they are Kurds!

A majority of the Kurdish population in Kanto resides mostly in Saitama just like the Indian population in East Tokyo, the Nepalese population in west Tokyo, the Koreans in Okubo, Brazilians in Nagoya and Shizuoka, and the Chinese in Yokohama and Ikebukuro.

Not much of a friend...

Probably the posters above allude to the fact that there is a strong Kurd community in Warabi, but in the absence of details, we don't know. What we know is that guys that get drunk and start knifing each other should be sent back to their country asap.

I don't think that's how one is supposed to do social distancing. Maybe he wasn't wearing a mask?

I thought Muslims aren't supposed to drink alcohol.

Stabbing in the neck or vital organs or arteries is attempted murder.

if he really had the drunken urge to stab his friend, the thigh or arm would of been enough. Just a lot of blood and probably no pain if drunk. Laugh it off later.

life is too precious to ruin lives of friends and family.

I thought the Muslims weren't supposed to be drinking alcohol.

Wasabi is adding to its reputation of being an Islamic outpost.......most locals refer to it as being Wasabi-stan since Japan's biggest mosque is located there.

Damn...spell-checker......Warabi-Stan.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

The biggest mosque in Tokyo is Tokyo Camii & Turkish Cultural center.

And no these people in Saitama, "warabi-stan" are not Turks. They are Kurds. Please get your facts straight.

They are mostly illegals from Turkey/Syria who work in construction and sell Kebab in Akihabara and around Shinjuku, Shin Okubo.

If you spot a "Turk" with a tattoo or earring or drinking alcohol openly on the street he or she is most likely a Kurd or Iranian.

How do I know? I'm Turkish and live in Tokyo. Our community is pretty small so we know who is who.

Well, they still have Turkish nationality, ergo are Turks, unless Erdogan now has allowed the establishmant of an independent Kurdistan...
