I came into KHH from KIX tonight. Customs really screwed me over!
I’ve never even seen customs at KHH even giving anybody the once over but now they have xray machines set up and were xraying everybody. There was a huge plane load from the Phillippines that jammed up immigration like I’ve never seen it and incredible line to go thru the green line at customs including the xray machine.
Anyway they picked me out for having some sandwiches. Any meat:? Uh, sure, I picked up a roast pork sandwich at KIX airport. OK, that’ll cost you 10,000 yuan. I freaking kid you not. I could not believe it; the officer talked about pig disease in MLC which I had heard about, never would have thought that a few slices of cooked pork in a sandwich would have cause me to get flagged for a major smuggling crime, but there you are.
DON’T TRY to bring in ANY MEAT or your risk a 10,000 yuan fine. Sadly, this is not a joke!!!
