Japan to ease late-night dancing ban

Government considers amending largely-ignored law that makes it illegal to dance after midnight.

    Japan is looking to ease a decades-old law that restricts dancing after midnight, but nightclub owners feel the plans create new problems.

    The law in question, known as the "fueiho", was passed in 1948, when clubs were seen as immoral.
