Committed Crime 
for Culinary Compensation

In Kobe, Japan, in May, an unemployed, 32-year-old man carried out a minor theft (stealing a wallet from a parked scooter) apparently just to be locked up in the world-famous city. Besides being the home of Kobe beef, it’s known for its French, Chinese and octopus cuisines, and in fact, Kobe’s Nagata Ward Precinct is renowned for special gourmet boxed meals prepared by local bento shops, delivered daily to prisoners, which the thief said was foremost on his mind.
