Narita Airport Begins New Security System
This week, Japan’s Narita Airport began a new immigration security system that requires non-Japanese to have their fingerprints scanned and photos captured. Apparently, the time spent for each person was often over an hour as compared to the previous 15 to 20 minute wait. Tested by Justice Minister Hatoyama, there were a few bugs in the system, including one of the machine’s locking up and its cams not being able to photograph those who were on the tall side. Once the kinks are worked out, we expect that Big Brother will be watching in other airports as well.
