The Roppongi club Studio Gate opened for business on September 21. While the action was light at 10 p.m., when the doors opened, by midnight, the hall was packed. The club was formerly known as Flower. Earlier that month, 31-year-old restaurant owner Ryosuke Fujimoto was beaten to death by a gang of thugs.
The club had been shut ever since, and thus far no arrests have been made by the police, with whom the club's owner is no stranger.
