Panasonic is releasing a slim pen-shaped IC recorder, the RR-XP007, in early December for about 11,000 yen.

The device has a clip like a pen, and you can record sounds while you keep it clipped in your chest pocket. There are several different settings for recording depending on the situation such as meetings with another person, meetings with multiple people, lectures, musical events and so on.

Color: black, white, violet, pink Size: 14.8×14.8×126mm Weight: 22g (excluding battery) Memory: 4GB Interface: USB 2.0

I wish I had had one of these the time my Japanese boss demanded personal "favors" from me in order to keep my job. Armed with this kind of evidence I would have filed criminal charges against him and sued the company as well.

Taping someone in Japan without their knowledge should lead to a huge fine, public apology, and more, right? It might be wise to consult a lawyer. I don't think the police or court would support you. Please correct me, if I'm wrong.

You seriously think that "evidence" plays a big role in Japan's justice system? LOL.

Good luck with that. The Labour Bureau and court system will never go out it's way to help a disgruntled foreigner - no matter what "evidence" you may have. They'll tell you "this is Japan, that's the way things are done here, just leave quietly and find a job somewhere else and everyone will be happy".

If you really want something from your boss, forget the court system, just get some dirt on him and blackmail him. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Or you can anonymously destroy his reputation on-line.

Or you can just forget about the bastard and get on with your life. That's what I did.
