Japan executions

This photo taken during a media tour conducted by Japan's Justice Ministry on Aug. 27, 2010, shows an execution room at the Tokyo detention house. Japan, one of the few industrialized democracies to maintain the death penalty, threw open the doors to its execution chamber for the first time to media.
